BBspot Mailbag

Now you too can enjoy my Inbox without the annoying spam. Every week I get some amazing e-mail. Some amazing because of the sheer cluelessness of the sender, some because of the time and energy that went into crafting them and some are just simply amazing.


Here's an indirect Believer about Doom 3 on your mobile phone...

Dear bbspot guy (Sorry, haven't located your first name on the site),

I sent the link to your DOOM3 mobile phone requirements article to a couple of friends who were talking to me about making mobile phone games, mentioning that, "I came across this on-line and I thought it would be an excellent follow-up to our discussion about mobile phone gaming."

Here was one of their responses:

"This is great news, and indicates the opportunity to create our own blow-em up games. I shall start coding one sample game next week...."

Since my name only appears 713 times on the site I can see how it would be hard to find. Good to know my site is being used for market research.

Alien Vs. Predator

One reader took issue with an omission in my Trailer Review of AVP...

"No major stars like the original movies this was based on"

What about Lance Henrikson??? Appeared in the first three Alien movies as the android "Bishop". In this movie he is supposed to be the creator (or the man that the androids will be based on in the future)

He only has two seconds of face time in the trailer, and only a true geek would consider him a major star. I doubt he is invited to the same parties as Sigourney and Arnold.

Man, that is a good show lineup. But don't forget the popularity of Reality TV. You may want to include a 12 and 13th show to the list

Also, could be While you Were Root.

Blowing in the Wind

Sometimes my readers scare me with their observational skills...

Subject: The mobile doom 3 article dangly

In the article about Doom 3 on mobile phones with the picture shrunk down on the screen, the monster kinda looks like he's 'waving in the wind'. Maybe its just because I'm still exhausted from the trip I just got back from, though I can't believe nobody else has mentioned it.

Great, now I can never visit that page again.

That's all for this week!
