It seem's like Tim is leaving Gamespot. He is leaving to prove there's something suspicious going on, and Jeff being honest got himself fired apparently.
Gamespot is not 1 year's ago Gamespot. ranking system changed + dumb reviews occur. After the PS3 released, gamespot totaly changed. They are paid by Microsoft
lol its lemming/xbot zone over there. i really go there to argue.
Enough of that "paid by M$" sh*t.
Who the hell is Tim? Who cares if he leaves? Is he really that important?
This guy is an idiot for quitting, plain and simple. He just gave up a cushy job hundreds of people would love to have.
Oh well, have fun being unemployed.
wtf is timmy?
even better question:
----------------------------- ------------------------------- --
psss: dont click on the link, youll register as a "hit".
I exercised my prerogative and stopped visiting gamespot after that Ratchet and Clank review debacle. I won't visit it again until they straighten out there act. I can get plenty of unbiased game news from other sites.
I think it was an integrity issue. Some people have a problem working in a place that fires people for doing your job, due to pissed off advertisers. I would.
That's like me saying you getting paid by SONY.Stop it with your fanboy rant.No good comes of it it just makes you look stupid. Sorry if this offends it's was not my intention. Microsoft did not make kane and lynch. Game on Gamer
They gave Uncharted an 8. Anyone that has finished that game they can tell you how sick it is. Storyline is awesome, as a shooter it's awesome, and jumping from ledge to ledge couldn't get any better. As for being paid by Microsoft, I highly doubt it. They're just 360 Fanboys. Put these games (like Warhawk) on 360 and they'll automatically become "Editor's Choice"
I could really care less about Gamespot, Gamefaqs or cnet... Or their employees for that matter. I hope they all go under for being so bias and so slanted for the last 2 years. I'm really sick of them tarnishing the overal scores of good games and while I do agree Kane and Lynch is pure CAT SQUIRTS... I do not agree with their halo 3 score and several other scores of theirs... Either too hgh or too low in many cases.
gamefaqs is cool though
What's wrong with gamefaqs? I go there for their ... gamefaqs. Saved my butt a couple of times.
And i dont wish them now nothing but the worst now that they are gone.
nobody is gonna miss yo a$$.
Actually if they are honest, they will get fired from EGM also. Because we all know EGM is in heavy with Microsoft also.
Hell some of there editors even went to go work from them. They are developing games for XBOX 360. Like that idiot Mcdonald? He's developing an RPG or something.
You've got to be kidding me. Is GS falling apart?
EDIT: I mixed up him with someone else. Who is Tim?
and all his reviews...
Thanks for the link and help :)
Bubbles for you.
yeah mk, i was wondering "who's tim" too.. haha
he didn't really review anything worthwhile...
LOL ! Gamespot = Stopgames
actually... stopps3games.com q:
Hmmm... The moment GS changed their review system EVERYTHING fell apart. Its been downhill since then.
I hope Gamefaqs stay afloat. I like that site alot. And I am on the forums to GS. So I hope they stay up for the forum side... But nothing else really.
u cant comment nutting good about ps3 or ps3 games without getting block , and tell me
Where's the story?
Its right up there at the top. I really don't see how you could have missed it. ;)
Who cares! I always knew that all big sites are biased and influenced by money. Thats REAL LIFE. Now when these two guys are gone, they will be replaced by two young rookies that will suck MS co.k if told so.
No way that Mass Effect deserved an 8 at all, its more like a 9 for sure and despite some technical glitches!!!!
Bad reviews and bad rankings destroy a site's credibility!!!
The Ratchet & Clank reviews prove this to a tee!!!
That game definitely deserved a 9!!!! And all of these games out there, and there are many which received a perfect 10, deserve a 9 period!
You know there is something rotten when Gamespot changes its scale, and starts going downhill this fast!
Imperfect games receive glowing reviews, and great games get trashed!!
Its got to stop, once and for all!
Because you know one way or another no matter what gamers, that if someone takes bribes from the other team to trash someone's game or someone takes bribes to give a glowing review for their game that its bad for the whole industry!!!
We all lose, and this should teach you! Gamespot and 1up's reviews are biased, and are run by advertising!
They either take the payoffs one way, or the other way, but either way they take a payoff!!!!
And he hired all of them, all of the reviewers who are big sports fanboys!!
The same ones who trashed the Mass Effect, Ratchet & Clank, Zelda, all the games across the board.
You should know that reviews of this kind, are toxic to the industry and that Gamespot has gone downhill!!
To change things start a petition drive to remove the likes of Gamespot from metacritic, stop letting bad reviews live on!!
Have you taken a look at the top of the page on metacritic?
It's owned by CNET, the same company that owns Gamespot.
that is the reason why i use gamerankings.com instead of metacritic :D
Eurogamer is most honest site. Best reviews.
They're all the same: 1UP,Eurogamer, GT, EGM, IGN. They all follow the same business module. If you actually believe there are prominant gaming sites that don't do the "incentives" game then you are trully naive.
Gamers have become pathetic sheep to these review site and they know it and abuse that trust. Don't be a fool to these sites.
haaa, I dont go to gamestop any more. to many false reports and reviews
taking payoffs under the table from ms and cnet where is the honesty??
in good reviews for good games like Mass Effect, RATCHET AND CLANK. they both should of recieved a 10/10
no game deserves 10/10
Everyone is paid by Micro$oft. Even your dad. That's why the PS3 games su...I mean get totally unfair reviews. It would be much more fair if they all got high review scores even though they su...I mean take a lot of time to mature into wonderful experience.
seems like all our complaints did some damage. long live the power of fan boys. but it saddens me that some people lost their jobs, i really didn't think about that
First casualties in this console war?
there's more to come. it's sad how corrupted the videogame industry turned out 2 be. i remember the good old days when sega didn't lie about it's blast processing and nintendo was all about mini games and no hardcore ones.
i guess they got enough money from MS to get there jag paid off, so now there out!
The shakeup in the games reviewing industry is starting. Guess we will see all kinds of revelations in the coming weeks and months about advertising, pay per review, fanboyism, trashing the opposition etc.
Grab the popcorn and watch this one - it is going to be one to watch...
COULDN'T PREDICT THIS SH*T!
Gamespot is being a douche firing off every1.
The Unbiaised Reviewer community rejoiced at the announcement that Tim and Jeff, former employees of CNET, joined forced and started a brand new gaming web site.
I feel sorry for Gamespot. That's sarcasm ladies and gentlemen
lol, bubbles to you good sir, bubbles to you.
Now, 1UP's turn.
Let the moda'uckers burn.
AND BY THE WAY FUCC GAMESPOT
Nobody cares about "Tim".
LETS GIVE THE GAMESPOT A HELL!
another one leaving hooray!!!
They're all 'uckin morons anyways. I remember all of them dissing & mocking the PS3 like mad so I aint losing sleep over these douches.
'UCK 'em all & 'UCK gamespot.
if you like it buy it i stop caring about websites last year and my gaming has inpoved greatly its all about what u like
