An insider at GameSpot has come forward today claiming he worked on the Kane and Lynch adds. He put in his two cents regarding the Gerstmann Firing. Read what he has to say after the jump.
Jeff was a c0cksucker, I'm so glad that he got kicked out. Now I can finally go to Gamespot again!
Good, now maybe Gamespot will be a more professional place to visit rather than looking like its run by a bunch of overweight, animal house rejects.
his Halo3 review made the game sound as if the game was the be and end all of video games. Happy his gone.
Gotta love the fanboys still trying to act outraged over this clown getting his obnoxious ass fired. Even better are the fanboys who now are suddenly trying to claim that Gamespot has suddenly 'lost credibility' LOL! Game reviewers and reviewers are nothing more than a cesspool of obnoxious little punks playing fanboy games with scores in hopes of furthering their own personal console platform choices. Seeing the reaction to this clown getting his fat ass fired is like having to listen to a bunch of Pro Wrestling fans freaking over their favorite wrestler losing a match and crying about how they want the world to know how Pro Wrestingly is totally fake. :O LOL! So you fanboys now know that game reviews, reviewers and review site are totally fake. Publishers influencing scores, reviewers trashing games on platforms they hate, and so on and so and so on... Glad the clue train finally arrived to pick your asses up.
"Insiders" that chose to leave out their names are cowards and full of total BS. He/she is jsut a lacky that GS/Cnet sent out in an effort crub this mess and have some sort of damage controll.
Oh I'm sooo sick of hearing about this tub of lard. So many other people get fired in life. Go get a job on the xbox division Jeff....Oh wait, that won't be around this time next year so they're not hiring....AAAAHHAAHHHAH
I like this quote from Mr. anonymous source "My gut tells me that he got canned for larger reasons. Maybe the Eidos debacle was part of it — I don’t know. hmm...convincing.... Edit: go look at gamespots front page now, notice anything? There's no sign of Kane, Lynch ooor Kane and Lynch together.lol
Fake azz BS, now they want to put whole blame on Jeff, just to defend "HEADs" of GameSpot and CNET. Just another typical american lie.
lol you should add "infidels!!" on the end of that.
and honestly I could care less.
sometimes the accusations are more damning the the truth. if edios actually pulled all that money, then jeff was fired, it is the saddest day for gamers who rely on reviews. everyone now is under the microscope, every mag/website now is under speculation of being bought. doesnt matter if its xbox.com or psu.com or ikissmario.com. we suffer.
"everyone now is under the microscope, every mag/website now is under speculation of being bought." I don't think that is a bad thing though. I think it's great, it can only make things better for us who read these publications. Who dares try anything like this in the future, if the backlash from the end consumer is so harsh?
under the microscope for the right reasons is different. being under because of a strong case that you or your collegues are being bought is totally different imo then some saying "oh they are biased!" or "they let the sports guy review the platformer wth!"
IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER.IT'S A GOOD THING THAT OTHER GAMERS ARE NOW SEEING WHAT MYSELF AND OTHER UNBIASED GAMERS HAVE KNOWN FOR A WHILE NOW;ONE OF THE MOST DOMINANT GAMING SITES IN THE WORLD IS DYING. HEY JEFF,IGN MIGHT BE HIRING SOMETIME IN MARCH NEXT YEAR,SO SEND US YOUR APPLICATION AND WE'LL SEE WHAT WE CAN DO FOR YOU OKAY? EDIT: AWWW SHUCKS I'M JUST A GAMER THAT'S HAPPY TO SEE A BIASED SITE GO DOWN!
Your unbiasedness is showing. It is bad enough that people feel the need to pick and defend a single video game system without idiots picking and trashing/defending video game websites. I highly doubt you work for IGN and if you do, are they aware you are on other websites making their site look idiotic?
Don't even pretend to ignore these facts! The competition either gives them a high payoff to score the other game extremely low, or bribes them away to give "their" game a score extremely high!!!! Either way the score is undeserved!! The tone of Jeff's reviews were all terrible and even bitter at times, but the problem didn't start with his fanboyism!! Nope that problem started with the payoffs coming in all the time, and competition constantly throwing down the money-hats to score the other game low and their own game really high!!! Who would love Kane & Lynch to be ripped a new one more than the one and only Electronic Arts? Did you know their games they publish, that a collection of them go head to head with the Hitman series? Who do you think EA owns boys and girls? Look at all their games, look at Skate!!! You are dreaming if you think reviews over there are unbiased! Even you know it is true now, these reviews can't be trusted! Start a petition drive to remove gamespot from the metacritic scale once and for all, take back the reviews!!!! http://www.metacritic.com
has n4g been taken over by ripten, it seems to have every second story
Ugh being taken over by the Stuff and Maxim creator? Goodbye Gamespot, goodbye indeed.
This is getting boring now
Some of the creators of those magazines, used to work for Electronic Arts!!!!! And Electronic Arts owns alot of developers, don't pretend anymore gamers you know what it all means!! Those reviews are all biased, all of them and you should never visit it again! Someone at EA has now found his way into the Gamespot editorial content, imagine if someone from Activision took over! All other games not of their own could be easily trashed and thrown away, then the other games would be the ones who pull the sales! You should find a way to get Gamespot out of the search results, so it stops being promoted everywhere and it goes back to the bottom of the page!! Get out the pitchforks if you want to save game reviews!!
i hate all halo 3 reviews..they give it a high score when everythin about that game is the same crap as 1 and 2..nothing new..
How bout this review... http://www.ripten.com/2007/...
