Sterling can go to hell

We agree on something. He's the last person to speak on the failings of games journalism.

1) He's not a game journalist, he's a blogger
2) He only seeks hits and does so by flamebaiting everything he writes.
3) He reviews games he doesn't finish (i.e Halo Wars)
4) He's quite literally, a douchebag

Sterling says himself on the podcast he would never consider himself a game journalist. He seems to be flamboyant and crass, but I don't think he's at the level of Gawker when it comes to hit-begging, his review strategy is a whole other argument entirely, and the last is an opinion. I find him really quite amicable.
