Well it has been a while since my last blog post. I have been really busy with work and other things so while i have been dropping in a haven't really done more then lurking around. It also looks like I picked a hell of a time to come back to gamespot with Jeff Gate and all these people leaving Gamespot over it.
Kind of sucks I was going to try to be a little more active but if most of the community leaves I don't see much reason to. It looks like 1up's forums are where most of the "GameSpot Refugees" are heading to so I guess if enough leave I will head over there my account i made over there a while ago is still good.
As for my Opinion on this whole Jeff thing well. I never have really agreed with any of the Gamespot reviews for a while now, but i still did read them over along with others to try and get a feel of the game so this doesn't really change much in terms of my feeling on the reviews. Just that now when I try to get a feel on if a game is worth buying I won't even bother to check out GameSpot's review like I used to.
Though I really feel bad for the Staff still left after this and even more for the ones who write the reviews. As no matter what pretty much anything they say and score they give will get the response of either they developer/publisher didn't pay enough and that is why they got a bad score or they paid for that good score. I don't know about you but if I was a reviewer at Gamespot i think i would be looking for a new job. I couldn't work knowing that people can't trust my review is my honest opinion or that if the developer doesn't like my "tone" in the review i could show up with my office door locked one day.
Well that is my two cents on this.
Oh if you like RPGs you have to play The Witcher so far that is the best RPG i have played in many years.
