For you Survivor fans, this is how it REALLY ought to be done. (Is anyone surprised that John "Daikatana" Romero was first to die? Who do you think will be the last man standing?)

Even less of a surprise is that Stevie "KillCreek" is way out in front to be the second one to buy it. If anyone has read some of the histories of the Daikatana development, they'll know that her decision to start sleeping with the boss was the source of much office politics and turmoil. (It doesn't hurt that she's a real babe.) Even weirder is that she posed for Playboy.

My vote for last man standing is LevelLord. He was responsible for about half the levels in Duke Nukem 3D, and they were, frankly, outstanding.

I'm waiting for the "reality series" proposed by some NPR commentator: "A locked room with a big pile of money and a bunch of knives."

That sounds something like 'The house on haunted hill.'

It's also basically the climactic scene of James Cohen's Ump (not to be confused with anything by Edward Gorey), in which a hitman nicknamed Ump moves to a small town and everyone, I mean everyone, eventually wants to hire him.

Would "Survivor" ratings go even further up if the tribe were actually allowed to kill the weakest members? That'd be compelling television: "NBC's Social Darwinism."

I think 'Survivor' would be a lot more interesting if the losers were barbequed alive on a spit and then eaten by the remaining contestants.
