Default Bear-able?

Congrats on a good start, Joe--that was a tidy little review on Bearly Sane, which I've thought about downloading a few times as it seems to be a real favorite. I never did understand what it was about though and you cleared up the gameplay well (I like the idea of anger bar, I wish normal people had visible ones of these, along with their other emotions.) Thanks too for the warning about spelling . . . that gets under my skin so much (blame it on my 8th grade English teacher) that I would probably have stopped playing after the first few errors--too bad for the game's maker, but good for a player to know.

Thank you very much, if you haven't played it yet then get out of the forums and do it now!!

That sounds a bit too much like the Sims for my tastes.

Haven't played the Sims, have been too busy on the forums.

Are you suggesting I play a computer game?!?!!? Now why would I want to do that? Seriously, the game sounds great--I'm sure it will take me more than an hour to finish though, so be prepared when I pepper you with questions.

When i saw the teaser on the main page about how much fun you had I said to myself "I bet he doesn't mention you sometimes have to do repetitive actions to get your anger bar up high enough"

Dang, you proved me wrong. Now, not only do I not get to be superior by pointing it out, but I've got to congratulate you on paying attention to such important details. Good job and keep it up.

A thread most controversial, that’s what I want to start
Full of impassioned arguments, of posting from the heart
And for this stimulation all will be thankful to me
On come on everybody it won’t work if you agree

Thanks, but i'm sure you can find something wrong. Not that I want you to look of course

Yeah, good first article, Joe. Well written

EasilyConfused: you have no excuse! There was already a mini-review that summed up Grr! on the site long before Joe's full-lenghth review. Shame on you!

Oh, I knew about Bearly Sane long before I even knew about AG! I just didn't know that Joe was Rio!

Hey, you're right. I looked again and you didn't mention the dog relieving itself against his leg in the opening cutscene. All my faith in you is shattered.
