"Here at Level Up, our inbox is chock full of press releases, PR pitches, notes from my editors, a fan mail or two, and the occasional bit of Viagra spam that slips through our email filters. But every so often, something genuinely compelling comes across the transom so compelling, in fact, that we have no choice to share it with you. In February, we appeared on the G4TV show X-Play to discuss Electronic Arts' bid to acquire Take-Two. A viewer of the program, Justin Blankenship, is also a regular reader of Level Up, and he wrote us to share his thoughts about the deal. His words were sufficiently compelling that we asked him to shape them into a formal post, which we present to you following our introduction."
