Re: No... not him! Don't tell me they got him too!

It's a shame that the site did not manage to move with times and created some YT presence as the content was always very high quality, but I guess that alone does not pay the bills. Even if it's just video without a presenter, it would bring in some additio...

Re: Serious Sam 3 (sucks?)

Well I am playing and it takes up until level 3 to get going and after that it's a blast... Didn't have as much fun playing a FPS till... I don't know... feels like forever.

The actual review here at TR seems to give the upper hand to ATi, but in the world of marketting, much like in politics, people will always pull things out of context and infuse them with a meaning which was not the original intent.
