" @oldschool said:By the contrary, I repeatedly pointed out that it would be just as pathetic if it were about a high profile game on either the 360 or PS3. My commentary is console neutral. I am not in the slightest bit upset. It is just another confirmation for me that journalism here is a sad and pathetic joke, not that it needed more confirmation." @Trilogy said:I'm not trying to "get" you. This isn't an argument between me and you really and I'm not about to defend Jeff. He's a grown ass man and he can defend himself if he wants to." @oldschool said:Oh yes, you got me good. Me and my 360, Xbox, 2 x PSP, PS2, PS1, Sega Mega Drive, Sega Master System, PC and assorted Nintendo consoles are such fanboys. Again, show me how I mentioned Nintendo in any of the replies or stop talking out of Jeff's arse. All I have read here is simply about the worst kind of journalism perpetrated by the stupidest thread any staff member here has made, and that is saying a lot. "Maybe for you it is but I have no vested interest in this article at all. I just think it's hilarious to see all of the nintendo fanboys come out and condemn Jeff. Fanboyism = Simpleminded. You're a pretty damn good example of this. Therefore, you make me laugh. Therefore, thank you. "
" @Trilogy said:" Nintendo fanboys... thanks for the laughs. "You are espousing the same simple minded nonsense you perpetrated on the other thread. This isn't about Nintendo, this is about Jeff's bad and very childish attempts at journalism, that wouldn't get printed in your hometown newspaper because it so void of intellect. The Nintendo aspect is completely irrelevant. "
All I'm saying is that fanboyism is pathetic. I mainly play games on a 360 but I also game on my pc, my ps2, my Wii and other various systems. That being said, you don't see me getting upset if somebody takes a a big fat verbal dump on the 360 or microsoft because I'm not a fanboy. I don't get defensive and call out the integrity of game journalists when they don't agree with me. Fanboys do.
Lets face it, if this article was about an official sony magazine doing a special on the next major ps3 exclusive, you wouldn't be upset. "
You need to try and separate commentary about bad journalism and game console preference. They are distinctly different things. Every time someone criticises poor journalism on a Nintendo product it is too quickly slated as fanboyism and it is far from it. The Nintendo users here don't really care who dislikes the Wii, they are too busy playing it and having fun. However, if they see studity in any form, like this thread, then they are entitled to call "crap journalism" when they see it.
Just for the record, I never came close to finishing Super Mario Galaxy as it both made me sick and didn't really excite me (it did look good though) and I am in no hurry to buy SMG2 (I haven't even bought NSMB yet), so it isn't even as if I have some vested interest in the game. This is not new news, as I have that position clear several times before.
