Yaaaaaaaaaaaaawn.... "Gamesplotch" sucked then, it sucks now and it'll inevitably suck in the future. This guy can kiss ball sacks for all I car... I ain't going back to that site, no friggin' way. Even more so when everyone and their mother gave R&CFTOD 9's and 10's and they gave it a 7.5 ... Then they give Pixel Junk Monsters, another game people are loving a 7.5 and basically position it as just as good as R&CFTOD.

Yeah, sure thing ANAL LEAKS. You won't be seein' me on your site anytime soon or Jeff's for that matter.

OH WELL,THEY CHOSE MONEY INSTEAD OF HONEST JOURNALISM,SO I GUESS THE LOW HITS THEY'RE GETTING NOW IS JUST WHAT THEY DESERVE.I USED TO LIKE THEIR FORUMS,ESPECIALLY THE SYSTEM WARS FORUM,BUT EVEN THE DIE HARD NINTENDO AND SONY FANS HAVE LEFT THAT PLACE SO I HEAR ITS NOT ENTERTAINING ANYMORE.

GAMESPOT SPENT MONTHS TRASH TALKING THE PS3 AND WII ONLY TO FIND OUT THAT SONY'S INCLUSION OF BLU RAY IN THE PS3 WAS ONE OF THE SMARTEST DECISIONS THEY'VE MADE AND NINTENDO HAVE BEEN SELLING CONSOLES LIKE HOTCAKES.THEY DESERVE TO GO DOWN IN FLAMES.

It doesn't matter who gets what position, they're all wanks anyways.
Gamespot is just crud. I went there last week and read through some of the forums and it's all just plain like rye bread.
