This is why we never take money or perks for reviews. While we are sent items fo review and so on, we always rate the game or product based on our reactions to them and how they worked, not on if we were given something for a review. We do not do a common film practice where a quote for a movie ad campaign is provided before seeing a movie, or provided simply to get their name in an ad campaign.

FTC guidelines are not laws kids, they are just that GUIDELINES. Non of them broke any laws, no matter how shady you think it is.

And once again... People keep saying FTC when they haven't said a word..

Think maybe the FTC would be doing something if their rules are broken.. But they aren't..

But that doesnt stop people from trying to spread the rumor that they are
