Is anyone else being spammed by Midway?

Recommended Posts

This is the email I got:
Subj: Hey from a Doom freak
From: spacelordz@entertainamania.net

Hey drnick

I saw you at a Doom site and wanted to break the ice, maybe see what you thought about some video games. Random. I know. But I meet some cool people this way. How long have you been a gamer? I am totally addicted. What new games are on your radar? I love all kinds of games, fighting, rpg, fps, etc., but mostly Action/FPS. What's most important to me is realism and how interactive it is. GTA Vice City is one of my latest favorites. That and HALO (hopefully soon to be HALO 2). And then there is the new Defender. Honestly, I wasn't sure if it was going to be as cutting-edge as the original (remember?), but… It really is blowing me away. I remember playing the original coin-op version. Classic. I don't know if you are into games like that, but I definitely recommend it. There are some cool space scenes and screens shots on the website: http://defender.midway.com Suggestions? Questions? Comments? Well, anyway, if you have any codes or cheats or any game reviews for me, let!
me know. Hopefully I’ll hear from ya. When I'm not playing, I'm online.

Later,

Jeff

Apparently, Midway decided to market it's latest arcade re-hash by obtaining the email list for the Doomworld board and innundate us with "personal" emails. I mean, Jesus, who talks like this??
Needless to say, Im pissed. Is anyone else getting this?

Yes, I also received the exact same email. As a matter of fact, I mentioned it in #zdoom recently. Just delete it.
