UGO's Games Editor, and 1UP's Good Grief podcast host Chris Plante (former UGO games editor Russ Frushtick is now filling Steve Totilo's old role at MTV) is asking for input on game reviews. He writes,
"You may have read my attack on video game reviews and their almost inherent banality yesterday, a response to a post by Scott Jones over at Crispy Gamer. Thanks to Twitter, I've received some helpful feedback from you folks. Rather than leave the discussion as just that, a discussion, I figured the summer, with its sparse releases, would make for a safe experimental period, a time for UGO to redesign its game reviews, generally a pain to write and a snooze to read, as some of its best material."
