The Final PC Zone Chat

PC Zone was my favourite magazine. It was somehow more "personal" than other mags; that is, I felt I personally knew everyone who wrote for it. Anyway, I tend to get carried away, so I'll leave my Zone story for another day. This blog post is mainly to dump the whole record of the final Zone Chat (conducted over the Steam client). I thought I'd save it for later and only just remembered to post it now (around a year later).
It isn't edited to protect the innocent or faint of heart. To some it will mean nothing. To others it'll seem like the ramblings of "those strange gamer types". 
Of course it is. But PC Zone belonged to these gamer types as much as it did the writers who featured on its pages. And though we may deny it now, many of us really were driven to tears back then...
