You may be forgiven for confusing the Destructoid Home Page for Gamespot, but don't worry, it's intentional but pay attention to the header and prepare to laugh.
"Now hiring reviews editors. No game playing needed! Must be good listening, PhD in BS preferred.." "Formerly Destructoid until Gamespot showed us the way"
BUT YOU ALL KNEW THAT
How professional... They don't realise they're whoring themselves out too, I suppose. I love this part "that's news for free on Destructiod with out bias" Those idots are more bias than gamespot are. They're all xbox 360 fanboys over there and the main editor was on Gamehead with Geoff confessing that he was. He's a spooner and so is his site. I don't venture to them either. Even worse... This whole thing got everyone more hits and more ad support. Everyone! Cause gamers are hitting on all the sites now just to see who's going to say what and why and when... It's like a soap opera. This whole thing is staged theatrics and such b.s. Ziffdavis supports their fellow reviewers, huh? I bet they do... They support them so much they'll exploit them and use them for their own personal gain. same with these Destructoid and Joystick Cricket D*CKS! Kotaku should be chiming in soon... I'm suprised they're not. That's pretty admirable of them, actually. This whole thing makes me sick!
It's just a joke, and I for one think it's kind of funny. Don't take everything so seriously. Besides the "Buy huge ads that take up the entire page and get a free 6/10 or 9/10" rating is hilarious watching the number rotate.
It's F*cking hilarious! Don't even try spewing your stupid BS around here. Destructoid isn't biased, 1UP isn't Biased, and neither is Joystiq. If you're the same Gamesblow that posts on the Playstation.Blog, then you're the one that's biased. Seriously, lighten up. It's one of the funniest things I've ever read, and here you are trying to say they're biased. Go to hell, or to Gamespot, where you belong.
They might just get sued by CNet.. Now that will be something to laugh about :)
A.) Lighten Up, it's a joke. B.) They're independent. They pretty much can do whatever the hell they want.
Obviously your not a regular dtoid reader. Destructoid does this stuff a lot. People's birthdays we change our banner, funny things happening all this stuff. We are just a fun site :D Don't take it srsly.
Sued for what? And who agreed with that? That would be like sueing those jokers for the Jade cartoon; meaning it's ludicrous. D'toid seems like a fun-lovin site that doesn't take itself or games too seriously and likes to take the piss out of anybody and everything. So go easy, cause your first reaction should not have have been to get all negative.
funny yet unprofessional :D ::grabs resume::
Destructoid FTW! Very nice touch Gestermann was right Kane and Lynch, Good story, but a terrible terrible game. Just awful in every department as far as gameplay goes.
Gamespot needs to reap what they sow. It's been obvious about their review bias for a while. Bet all you who have been making fun of PS3 fans for crying foul feel dumb now.
LOL.it's pretty damn funny...and un-proffessional..but isn'ts that what gamespot stood for..?..an unproffessional joke in the industry..?.0_o isn't it funny how M$ pulled there support on the site..!!..
GAMESPOT,YOUR TIME IS UP!
Thats what everyone needs to realize.
This is getting silly now. I think that gamestop reviewer deserves to be fired because he was not professional at all in his review. Its good that Gamespot fired him, because that will set new standards for the reviewing business.. What next, I think Gamestop should really fire the guy who reviewed Uncharted.. that guy really missed up. All those sites should consider the fact that gamers are more mature nowadays (especially PS3 gamers), its not like back in the days when most of them were teenagers and little kids that did not care about the way games are reviewed.
The thing is this... Those 1up Ziff Davis Smacks marching down their with their stupid ass sign proved nothing. They went right back to work 20 minutes later... If they wanted to show their support they'd still be out there. Ask any Union who strikes. they believe in what they're striking for... these ass holes didn't. they went to work and called their protest a day after 20 mins. It's a nice gesture... nothing more. You all are so sappy, I swear. As for Destructoid... they're using this whole thing for their advantage. they're independent? Sure, but so am I and I support Sony fully... Sony doesn't pay me to blog about them... I just do it because I love them and their products. Destructoid might not be getting paid by Microsoft, either... but they sure do like to please their nut sacks alot. you all are feeble minded.
Somebody disagreed with what I siad here? hahahahaah... WOW! So, you don't think that if they're legit they should still be out there protestig this thing? Trying to get their "fellow reviewer" re-hired? Please... you all are mornons. If they were legit, Jeff would get re-hired with an office that overlooked the east side and a new vacation package. the thing is... this whole thing is a joke, a hoax, a fraud and a sham. A wash... and nothing doing but a big ball of lies.
It's all going to be okay.
destructoid is doing every thing to get your attention while this incident is striking hot. but seriously this is getting really stupid. Do you know destructoid is trying hard to get hits.. I heard they even fake their digg or something. Now they are trying to milk every person that piss of with gamespot with this. To me, they are just the same. Gamespot is dumb and Destructoid is dumber. Just stick it to IGN, should be good for now at least.
Wow, for a 12 year old girl, you sure are on the internet a lot. Isn't it past your bedtime?
lol like i gonna lose sleep on you what you said. You should try harder .. hahahaa
Gamespot is Cashspot !!! http://www.petitiononline.c... Lets get them kicked off the meta scale once and for all, the petitions are being manually submitted to the head editor in charge !!
CNET owns metacritic.com
and Gamespot owns GameRanking and GameFaq. I don't think they will die soon.
Gamespot doesn't own anything. CNET owns : Gamespot.com, Metacritic.com, Gamefaqs.com, GameRankings.com
Beoulve is a 12 yr old little girl.
keep trying xmod hhehe keep trying ;) if I'm a 12 year old girl, at least i'm more mature than you and at least I dont go troll every comment that you wrote.. Hhehee but that's you. You is you, i'll let you be you. can't going to stop you. So keep trying man. I'll give you credit for trying
Which means we can't take any seriously when lookin at Sony's scores and overall % ... Hell, I think we've seen just how far they'll go. 12 reviews for R&C 9 and above were never listed. 8 reviews for Uncharted 9 and above were never listed... the same sites they use for xbox 360 reviews weren't used for the reviews on R&C and Uncharted for some reason. Mass Effect was reviewd by Gametv and used ... Yet, Gametv wasn't allowed to be posted for R&C and Uncharted's reviews in overall % Strange... So, maybe... none of these sites are legit. Maybe people need to stop tossing out numbers and figures and statistics, cause they're all B.S. The only way to know how many Ps3's are sold... is if you count how many yellow lights are lit up on Folding at home. "ha" You'd come closer than VG charts would, that's for sure. in closing... cnet, Gamespot, Gamerankings, Metacritic are all affiliates of Microsoft. Microsoft owns cnet, which owns the following.. gamerankings, metacritic, gamespot... You all do the math when judging whose bias and whose not.
chill man, life is still beautiful outside :)
Does Microsoft have its fingers that far into the journalistic industry? I was wondering why Ratchet and Uncharted had below 90% ratings on Metacritic and Gamerankings; never seen anything below a 90% for ratings for those two titles (except for Gamespot, which gave Ratchet a 70%).
LOL I wonder if I would get suspended for posting this as my profile banner XD
