...at least that's what Xentax.com says:
 
http://www.xentax.com/?p=303
 
And as you can see Jeff isn't the only one he thinks is "crap". 
 
All of this over Duke Nukem Forever reviews.
 
This guy must really like Duke.

Xentax.com?

#3 Edited by The_Laughing_Man (13629 posts) -

What site is that even? Never heard of it. Also Duke Nukem is the only thing thats crap. Jeff isnt the only one who gave it low review. Eurogamer supposedly have been black listed because of its review.  
Going by numbers it is the same score MANY  gave the game..  
 
 
P.S any "Blog" that does not have open comments is one I fully ignore. Someone can not take his work being crititzed.

What is xentax.com? And does it really matter that some guy somewhere doesn't like Jeff's reviews?

#6 Posted by Klei (1768 posts) -

Reviewers are just dudes with opinions, you know? I don't think Jeff has bad writing and explanatory skills, quite the contrary, but often his opinion differs from mine, thus, making me enjoy games he really doesn't.

Pretty much.

#11 Posted by Danteveli (1205 posts) -

Its funny. Assuming that the game deserves 75% as a base. I would go with 50%.

#12 Posted by hedfone (1731 posts) -

i definitely care about what Xentax says

#13 Posted by Superman64 (40 posts) -

I never heard of Xentax either. I saw this article posted on Raptr.

#14 Posted by MentalDisruption (1670 posts) -

Xentax.com? Who cares about a site that sounds like it cures heartburn.

#15 Posted by EuanDewar (5107 posts) -

You will never find someone who cares about what this guy has to say.

#16 Posted by mekon (289 posts) -

Surprise surprise, comments are closed on that article so that nobody can call the author a douche.

#17 Posted by iAmJohn (6135 posts) -

@LiquidS: I'd like to think this guy wouldn't be stupid enough to throw his own website under the bus like that, but maybe this is a new click tactic!

Either way, regardless of whether the OP did write that, or if the OP was so bothered by this no-name site calling out Jeff that he had to bring it to our attention, let me be the first to say: u mad, bro?

Would be lying if that thought didn't cross my mind. But yeah, articl is bullshit. Whether or not a review is good or bad depends entirely on what side of the score the author deems the "appropriate" score falls on.

#19 Posted by nintendoeats (5975 posts) -

I'm really tired of seeing this article. It's absolutely absurd. Stop giving this guy traffic.

My review will be going up shortly. this is not an objectively good game, whether you like it or not. The scores are warranted.

NO ONE DEFILES THE NAME OF JEFF GERSTMANN!! NO ONE!!!

This mofo doesn't stand a chance.

#21 Posted by ShockD (2421 posts) -

This is note even a site, it's a blog of some frustrated gamer who bough DNF.

#22 Posted by AlwaysBeClothing (1498 posts) -

Eh, just trying to stir up controversy to get his five minutes of internet fame. Threads like this only give the author what they wanted in the first place.

#23 Posted by DonChipotle (2858 posts) -

I never understood why people get so up in arms if a reviewer doesn't like a game that they like. Things like this make me shake my head and wonder if the time spent collecting the data could've been spent better elsewhere. Like accepting that people don't all like the same things.

#24 Posted by Subject2Change (2966 posts) -

So anything below a 50 isn't appropriate but anything above an 85 is? a review is an opinion and for anyone to take such offense that did not in any way contribute to the making of the game should not be so offended. The game is bad, it's at best a 4 out of 10 in my book and that's just me. All the reviews that i've read have been spot on to how I felt. Maybe people expected more out of it but what they did to the core of Duke (regenerating HP and 2 weapons) was honestly just not acceptable in my mind.

#25 Posted by Buscemi (1106 posts) -

Well, gosh, if Xentax says he's crap then he has to be!

#26 Posted by Brendan (8173 posts) -

The amount of people defending Duke Nukem is blowing my mind. It blows my mind even more that it's not just people who love it and think it should be critically lauded, but people that have specific score ranges in mind where any opinion that falls outside that range is garbage. It's the internet, so I suppose it comes with the territory.

#27 Posted by buft (3320 posts) -

LOL what a ridiculous premise for a comparison, i love the bit where he writes " Overall we would agree that the game deserves somewhere between 65% and 70% as a score" then he doesnt back this up with a source or any of his own theories. He then goes on to pan other websites for giving crappy reviews to generate hits. 
 
what a troll

#28 Posted by xMP44x (2193 posts) -

I've never heard of Xentax, and I do not care about them either. They do not concern me in the slightest, because a review is something I use to get some more gameplay and other opinions, rather than base my purchase upon.

It's not my website. I don't even have a website. And I already said how I found the link. I haven't even played Duke Nukem Forever yet. And I don't have a problem with Jeff.

#34 Edited by AjayRaz (12477 posts) -

 to be honest.. who cares? it's not even like he said that Jeff is a crap reviewer specifically.

You should stop taking Xentax and call your doctor if you have an erection lasting more than 4 hours.

And jeff wasn't mentioned once. Great investigation work, Sherlock! :D

Oh no, it's on the image the guy stole. That's not calling Jeff anything though. Unless images somehow learned to speak

#38 Posted by DocPorpoise (116 posts) -

look you can tell these guys are idiots from the the description of how they choose whose crap. you can't just use the rating a reviewer gave it with out reading what the reviewer has to say about it. alot of the points they bring up about how the game isn't great echo what Jeff said. it was just his opinion that it get two stars (or 40% to 59% by their numbers) and you can understand why that is from reading his review. i'll never understand people who just go by the number ratings, i need to know where the person giving that score is coming from.

Is this a site that was created by that PR team who all got fired?

Always bet on Jeff

#41 Posted by bybeach (5007 posts) -

His feelings have been hurt. Plze give him some fucking room, dammit.

#42 Posted by blaze503 (189 posts) -

is xentax like a male enhancement company or something? Also what a load of bullshit, you can't compare 2 reviewers just based off score you have to look at what games they generally like and are usually favourable towards.

#43 Posted by Superman64 (40 posts) -
@ZeForgotten: Ummmm how do you know he stole that image exactly? And yes...by listing Jeff under the header of "Crap Reviewer"....that's pretty safe to say he's calling him a crap reviewer.
#44 Edited by ZeForgotten (10397 posts) -

@Superman64: I need him to openly write "Jeff Gerstmann is a crap reviewer" before putting words in his mouth and unleash the Jeffinites upon his forums.

Xentax, they were angry that Whiskey Media refused to host their dick pill ads.

Your title made people think he was calling Jeff out alone.
