Melodrama - Rich Stanton accuses Edge for altering scores, PC Gamer for lying, and CVG for misquotes

DSOGaming writes: "Before starting this article, let me tell you that I’m not taking anyone sides on this story. Okay? We got this out of our way? So, let’s begin. Freelance writer Rich Stanton has accused a lot of Future Publishing portals, as well as a number of publishers for ‘paying’ in order to get better scores. We all remember the Gamespot Kane & Lynch fiasco, so this is not surprising to hear but do publishers and big gaming portals alter their review scores, even to this date? According to Rich, they do." (CVG, Edge, Eurogamer, Future Publishing, Industry, PC, PC Gamer, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

If you don't think this type of stuff happens, your foolish.

The thing that sucks is that it only takes one company doing this to make everyone else look bad.

It's not ratting somebody out if they are doing something bad.

Nothing surprising , especially with CVG and Edge . One barely knows anything about the games they cover , and the other is a bunch of fakely elitist posers , can't be coherent for a month and flip flop between pretending to be harsh and giving free passes , on all platforms .

Like it or not many of those sites and magazines are as meaningful and credible as famitsu . Minus the exclusive news on japanese games
