Eurogamer operations director Tom Bramwell has said the site has been “blacklisted” by 2K in a tweet related to last night’s Redner Group story.
Wow! So now not only do they know that DNF sucks ass, but they want to make sure they are the ONLY ones that know it. They fired that group after the fact, and they STILL blacklist Euro? I'm not going to say that Euro is the most creditable review source in the world, but that shouldn't mean you can just blacklist a publication just because you got a bad review, rushed or not. Part of PR is showing how you DEAL with that criticism, and it seems 2K made an epic fail with this one.
. If Eurogamer gave DNF a 3 / 10 and got blacklisted... What about other sites who gave lower scores?
Good, ever since they decided to become like Edge and give out deliberate hit grabbing low scores, they deserve everything they get. Expect a 10/10 score from them for Bioshock Infinite now.
They shouldn't be BLed, though. The reviews are just opinions, and if you don't like them, then you don't have to read them or agree with them. There is a such thing as rushed reviews, yes, and Eurogamer is far from creditable, but that doesn't mean they should be BLed for it. Period!
