@DamnEvilDog: Heh, yeah, everyone rips on him but let's be realistic, he's not the ultimate boss of Gamespot right? He does his job, someone higher up obviously approves of all this stuff and hasn't fired him.
@drumjod: Just something maybe not really important but noteworthy. If you read their announcement of the business it seems to be mostly about creating content for game companies, not really on the journalism side so much. I think the YouTube channel will be "their thing" and the stuff coming out of DoubleJump is more like stuff paid for by publishers and such.
