The Jersey Shore by AbaKon The Jersey Shore by AbaKon
"...Streets are all jammed. Noise in crowds like New Year's Eve in city. Wait a minute . . . Enemy now in sight above the Palisades. Five -- five great machines. First one is crossing river. I can see it from here, wading the Hudson like a man wading through a brook . . . A bulletin's handed me . . . Martian cylinders are falling all over the country. One outside Buffalo, one in Chicago, St. Louis . . . seem to be timed and spaced . . . Now the first machine reaches the shore. He stands watching, looking over the city. His steel, cowlish head is even with the skyscrapers. He waits for the others. They rise like a line of new towers on the city's west side . . . Now they're lifting their metal hands. This is the end now. Smoke comes out . . . black smoke, drifting over the city. People in the streets see it now. They're running towards the East River . . . thousands of them, dropping in like rats. Now the smoke's spreading faster. It's reached Times Square. People trying to run away from it, but it's no use. They're falling like flies. Now the smoke's crossing Sixth Avenue . . . Fifth Avenue . . . one hundred yards away . . . it's fifty feet . . . "

Oh yeah. That was a masterpiece. I still dust it off frequently. They made a computer game out of it...probably the most bug-addled program ever created. Not as heartbreaking as Master of Orion 3 (a game I saw reviewed as - I kid you not - less fun than Excel).

Wow, less fun that Excel? That's almost as low as Cyberlore's "Playboy Mansion"!?

The really awful thing is that Master of Orion 2 is one of the best strategic space empire games EVER. And when they made MOO3, it was like they intentionally went out and picked the WORST parts of MOO2 to build it on.

"No, Pammy, that is almost exactly what I told you not to do...."

I think he is referring to an MTV personality who goes by "snooki" whose real name is Nicole Polizzi. She does a show called Jersey Shore.

(according to Wiki [link] )

No clue what the reference means beyond that... I must be too old. :(
*sigh*
