Grand Theft Auto III: Throwing Mercury Fulminate on Troubled Waters
by Protagonist X
7/24/02 : Cementing his reputation as the most dangerous man on the web, Pinback brutally attacked your friendly neighborhood site-op for the GTA3 review that was posted on the Trotting Krips part of the site. He did so anonymously, and it took me a few messages before I figured out it was him due to the IP address lookup feature on the BBS. It took that long because I am a drooling cretin. One good thing came from the thread, and that's Protagonist X's take on GTA3, which is extremely insightful and level-headed. Check it out.
