From Paul Gale Network: "Since this morning's big announcement of IGN and GameStop merging, new details have come forth including how the advertising and other networking properties will co-exist."
The only thing I need to know about now is Game Informer.
favorite video game magazine in twenty plus years of gaming.
As long as the writers and editors don't get fired I'm happy
the worst gaming site merging with the worst gaming store sounds like a perfect fit to me
Game Informer has it's good moments. What gets to me about GI is that they never seem to want to push the envelop but instead always tread the safe line.
they exclusive reveals and i like thinks like game infarcer and the sacred cow bbq.
than best of luck to you its hard to trust them anymore one thing i do like about their site is they do a lot of previews and they have all the breaking news before any other gaming site
why are people approving this? There are no quoted sources, nothing on any website or news network about it and some random name site spewing nonsense with zero proof is to be taken seriously? Please delete or block this stupidity, at least one "article" on this fake story has been approved, don't make it a second one.
If they started deleting stupid or fake articles on this site this site would quickly die. A good 70% of articles on N4G fall into those categories lol.
Wow the fact that IGN will be putting ads in a big way on GameStop makes me uneasy about their reviews.....
they couldnt get anymore biased and full of flamebait than they already are.
they're not that bad. Give me some examples of unfair reviews
It's not like one person runs IGN, some reviewers are better and can give more reliable opinions and other are bad and their writing fells sometimes like some fanboy teenager rant.
I thought this was about IGN and Gamespot. Never mind.
lol at first i thought it said gamespot to.
ya dont worry me too. I was worried because i like gamespot slightly more.
yep me too. i was going to come in here screaming about the apocalypse
its like merging crap with cow crap...
Not a fan of IGN.
IGN = garbage site. Gamestop (EB Games) = Video game store. I guess that's why they merged. They have something in common.
What was it???? Can you repeat that?
I don't think a video game review site should merge with a sales business. Cause if reviews effect sales then the sales company could sway the review company... Just seems like strange deal.

Still did catch that.
A match made in hell
As long as they keep em seperate, who cares. i really hope this dosent prevent the podcast peopel from talking mess about gamestop when its due. Probaly will though.
I stopped going to IGN for news/reviews a long time ago. Their editing and overall quality of reporting is somewhere between dirt and mud. Still though, this doesn't really sit well with me. If you thought IGN was incentive-motivated before, just wait to see what happens if they become co-dependent on retail sales.
lol @ this I'm not even gonna say it...
Video game REVIEW site merging with a video game retailer? does ANYONE see where this is going: IGN reviews 'insert game here' very highly in order to get people to get pre-orders and inflate Gamestop's revenue's regardless of whether the game is any good. In the end, real consumers that rely on unbiased opinions to make a decision on what game they should get are the losers
