Writing About Gaming Versus Being A Gaming Journalist

From eGamer, "If you haven’t already noticed this past week has been a gratifyingly great one for games journalism, gaming journalism or whatever you deem this type of writing form to be. Well, what am I talking about you ask? In one word, “Gearbox” and insert one more word “lies”, and you have a summation of the current events revolving around the debacle that is Aliens: Colonial Marines. At eGamer we critically derided the mess of a game as an abysmal pile of Xenomorph entrails. Couple with this a huge amount of unrest and dissent circulating from a variety of online media platforms, spearheaded most notably by Destructoid overlord Jim Sterling, and you get a negatively pronounced picture of the dealings going on behind the scenes at Gearbox". (Aliens: Colonial Marines, Culture, Gearbox, Industry, Jim Sterling)
