A reviewer not being happy about current state of affairs in the game industry.
A small snippet of the article
Not bashing any game here nor do intend for it, just makes you think twice about evaluating a game based on a review.You know what I don't like? The other stuff.
Fighting with PR over review copies. Being told that we can't post a review of game X before the embargo "unless the grade is at least an 85 on Metacritic." The sites to DO score that high get all the pre-release traffic so we're forced to ether inflate a grade or lose the hits.
Being told that sites which use letter grades do not get advanced copies. (Because of the way those scores are translated on Metacritic.) Knowing this is untrue because 1Up sure does. Then realizing we aren't 1Up.
