The Furious Gaming Geek Demands a Sequel to Zombies Ate My Neighbors.
The following message was submitted to Konami via a form on their website.
Reference No: W017333-072208
It is I who is the Furious Gaming Geek, both wondering, pondering and demanding to know how much longer I must wait for a 3rd game in the Zombies Ate My Neighbors franchise.
You, who are Konami, published the Genesis game developed by Lucasarts, those Star Wars guys. I tried to ask them, but they kept on sicking Yoda on me.
They are now on my list for that reason and for the occasionally bad camera angles in their LEGO games!
I must turn to you, who are Konami of up up down down fame, to answer this query, question and demand.
Konami responded 24 hours later. . .

In-fighting with the Furious Gaming Geek
The following message was sent to Charlie Marsh of Diehard GameFAN.

There are things which are accepted by the Furious Gaming Geek, who is me, and those which are not accepted, also known as rejected or cast aside, into that endless abyss of space-time, full of that which is not wanted by Me, the Furious Gaming Geek. Things which are accepted are many and righteous, but that which is not accepted is infinite. Somewhere in that infinite, not towards the middle for infinite has no middle, like a jelly doughnut has no hole, is Charlie Marsh, who is not accepted. Nay he is rejected by the Furious Gaming Geek, who is me!
The reasons are many, but simple. Firstly, we have your curses on one who is a saint. And here is where it is that I would quote you as saying, ” After 15 years of being disappointed, I finally took matters out of that fat bastard, Santa’s hands and into my own. I finally purchased a Sega Genesis.”
I have it on good authority that Saint Nick is not a bastard, as his parents were happily married at the point of his conception, well mostly happy, as they had those occasional fights that couples have. As for his weight problem, it is most likely glandular, perhaps it is an under-active thyroid gland. Such factual errors lead me, the Furious Gaming Geek, to believe that you, Charlie Marsh, have no integrity as a journalist. It is sad that one like you, who is Charlie Marsh, would sully the good name of GameFAN magazine with your research, which has proven shoddy, shabby and otherwise dilapidated in many forms.
This has been a message from the Furious Gaming Geek, who is me.
The Post Script: If you had been a wiser shopper, who was crazy for games, you could have bought those games for $1 a piece at GameCrazy, who is crazy for games. There all classic plastic is 5 for 5, which is not only a good deal, but is also a beautiful piece of assonance.
