    Ridiculous Statements Masquerading As Games Journalism: An Occasional Series



    “How perfect is it to have Satan -- the Father of Lies and ultimate evil of one of the world's great mythologies -- reduced to little more than a bored corporate functionary worrying about Evil(TM) losing its market share? Throughout Season Two we've watched as classic cultural tropes with rich histories such as Santa Claus, the Fountain of Youth, the Easter Island statues, vampires, zombies, UFOs, mariachi music and even the humble birthday cake get stolen from their proper settings, robbed of their true power and regurgitated back at us in a soulless family-friendly version for the purpose of selling us useless junk. In such a world the deranged nihilism of Sam and Max actually becomes the only sane response.”

    Allen 'Delsyn' Rausch from GameSpy.com enlightens the delighted reader with his discourse on the social commentary of Sam & Max: What’s New, Beelzebub?

      He's against it, as you can tell by the title "Ridiculous Statements Masquerading As Games Journalism."

      I disagree, personally. It's certainly a bit flowery, but the guy is trying to say something beyond the normal "It's Awesome! 10/10" bollocks that makes up so much "journalism".

      Take that, bastard. He put far too much effort into writing that crap, probably in a desperate hunt for credibility.
