Thatís Dust Puppy, not sick puppy.

Subject: Illiad

Illiad is one sick puppy.

Keep up the good(?!) work.


I know, I know, I gotta see this movie...

Subject: 'He didn't like The Matrix'

While I will never be one to harshly criticize someone for their own personal opinion, and I consider someone's opinions of trivial matters such as entertainment nothing worth arguing about...

loony, wtf are you talking about!!! Matrix was the coolest movie I have seen in ages, with spectacular special effects, kickass fight sequences both martial and gun based, and a plot that was relatively original! I was seriously blown away... it has been a long time since a movie made such an impression on me.

I don't suppose you'd be so kind as to specify exactly what about that movie turned you off?

The only significant flaw I saw was the relatively weak ending. Well, that and the idea of humans as an efficient energy source. :) Was it only that that soured your opinion of the whole movie? If you can overlook the ridiculous idea of a 'thermal exhaust port' that leads straight to a main reactor of a planet sized starship and still love a movie (that's assuming you loved Star Wars :), are human batteries so hard? :)

Ahem. Like I was saying, people's personal opinions are their own, and who am I to argue?


I tell ya...when people youíre on BUSINESS calls with start telling you to go see a movie, youíd better see that movie. So I will. :)

[Editor's note: okay, since you asked...here's my beef with the film. It was Mortal Kombat. Nothing more, nothing less. Don't get me wrong, I liked Mortal Kombat, but that movie didn't have 90 minutes of unnecessary exposition. This one did, and as a result I felt it could have been edited into a 20 minute kung-fu sequence. That I would have liked. Oh, and Keanu Reeves is a moron. I kept waiting for him to start playing the air guitar.]



Subject: About your site.........


I think that Lonnygames is the best thing that has happened in the "online-game-magazine-community" ever.

Good work boys Ö.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Regards / Robert Aronsson

PS The Derek Smart article was very interesting. DS.

Ok...I may be the only female on staff, but...boys? And itís loonygames.

And thanks. :)



Subject: update the site

What's the deal. It's wednesday. I need the next code on the cob.


Yah..the loon updated late. Hangover? :)

I have to say, Iím going to miss Chrisí column...Iíd be a liar if I said I understood it all, but itís been a fascinating series, and I canít wait for itís return.

[Editor's note: I bet you think she's kidding, right? Seriously, although I was somewhat inebriated on Tuesday, I wasn't so drunk as to have it effect my update...in actuality I was waiting on Hargrove to finish his column. :)]


And the winner of this weekís t-shirt is...

Subject: updates - what time?

At what time do you update the website to include "today's" content?

I'm over on the east coast and, as of 12:10 EST, the website is still displaying yesterday's articles.

thanks, and keep up the great work!

I like that you want to see the next dayís content sooner rather than later. It means we have something worth reading. And see! Not even a relative and he gets a t-shirt. :)

[On a normal evening, loonygames is updated somewhere in the midnight to four AM slot...as I mentioned above, this Tuesday was somewhat unique.]


- Stephanie "Bobbi" Bergman is an associate editor at loonygames. She's probably the most normal person on the staff. That's really sad.
