1UP editor pokes fun at GamesRadar 'copying' features

Back in March, GamesRadar, believing in a Louis XIV fashion that heavenly bodies orbit around them and not visa-versa, accused IGN of stealing their ideas (for the second time) in a story entitled "IGN: officially out of ideas? PART 2: Are they really just copying us, again?" It seems, however, this was a case of the pot calling the kettle black as Scott Sharkey – 1UP editor and lifelong fan of Johnnie Walker – posted an entry on his blog drawing similarities between an article he wrote, "Videogame Breast Exam," and a similar GamesRadar piece, "Best in breast."

Sharkey's response to the possible copying? Making fun of GamesRadar's "Wah-Wah IGN copied a Top X Games on a Console Feature" story, utilizing the <strike> command to its fullest capacity. Joystiq giggled the most at his altering the email address from "[email protected]" to "[email protected]***ingpair.com." However, this didn't tickle the funny bone of a GamesRadar editor, who posted a response on NeoGAF.

The story is too old to be commented.

I dislike 1up and Gamesradar and hope the two tear each other apart.

Actually GameDaily also had an article / thing on "Breast Exam" long before those two...
