From summer 05, the GTA:SA review issue of PC Gamer UK. (Is This The Way To Amarillo? covers were everywhere at the time).

The BBC news team’s “Is this the way to E-lec-tion” was better. And by better I mean more horrific. It had Michael Portillo.

Wasn’t this for the GTA: San Andreas review issue?

One of my old faves. Even if the tune has been done to death, I’d still stand up and sing this.

Hitler! Wait, that could be the guy out of ‘on the busses’. I enjoyed san andreas. But i have a weird hate for it i can’t justify.

Damn you! Now I’m singing Amarillo and I doubt very much that it will leave my head any time in the next 12 hours.

Mad props for including a Darwinian – obviously for their tight links to Pimpin’.

SA was waaaaay better than GTA4.

you realise the outcry that the forumites will gush unless gta 4 pc is the highest scoring game ever’!’ but oddly i don’t think it will deserve it. The game has strayed from sand box to set piece. And other games do it better. I hope the god awful flight physics are gone. Flying a helicopter in battlefield or arma feels so natural and reactive. The air vehicles in SA handle like the controlls are made of jelly. I will be buying 2 copies (one for me one for the other half) however probably at release too. If only to have her perform a drive by shooting.

Well, I love musical parodies, but the scansion here needs a little work. Good effort, though, and the pictures are funny (especially the Darwinian).

This is by far my favourite. I cut this one out, in fact.

I dont get it.

Haha. Love this comic. It’s great.

I thought the flying system in SA was great. One of the best I’ve seen in any video game. WASD + arrows and a few other keys. Nothing wrong with it at all.

Missed an opportunity there – Gordon Freeman should be stood there silently instead.

Every time I hear Amarillo, these are the words I end up singing all day. True story.

Urgh. Saw this SL towards the end of the craze, so when I saw the comic, I just had to scream bloody murder
25/08/2008 at 02:27
Ahahaha well done. Someone should make a machinima of this with the instrumental in the background

I’m so glad I have no idea what this song is.

Why the censorship box in the fifth panel?

My one and only crowdfunding campaign, for a Twix, was a rip-roaring success
Can a 2012 reboot survive in the space-sim paradise of 2014?
You'd sort of assume an aegis would be doing the defending
And fancy new automation
