@bbk: My underlying point is that I think someone like Patrick, or Sterling, can pretty easily be regarded as "game journalist" or "critic", while someone who recently wrote an article clarifying Ice-Ts opinion of Dungeons and Dragons (whether it was his choice or assigned by his employers) would be more accurately described as a "Kotaku writer." I cannot be the the only one who shares this opinion. I don't care for most of Kotaku's content and I'd rather not see that seep into Giant Bomb.

You can debate the relative popularity of people who write things on the internet with someone else.

Fantastic. Because I think we can all agree the one thing Giant Bomb needed was more Kotaku.

Kotaku isn't a human being. It's comprised of multiple human beings -- some not worth reading or following, others definitely worth reading or following. Perhaps Evan is the latter or perhaps the former, but if you simply define him by whatever bug you have up your butt about his employer, you sound ignorant.

Totally. You shouldn't define people by their employer...that's what the description does. Notice how the blurb up top reads. When Patrick had Jim Sterling on, he got "games critic" even though he works for the Escapist. Evan (the poor guy) gets "Kotaku writer". See, even the editorial staff implies there's a difference.

This really sounds like a "If you like Resident Evil, you'll like Resident Evil 5" kind of situation. The people who haven't liked it seem to be looking for something more.

I gave this a rent. Got 750 points after finishing it on the easiest difficulty. I thought it was fun, just ultra repetitive, and I thought the gags and bosses were decent enough to keep me playing through the levels.

Here's an idea on how to make some money: Have you guys considered trading favorable reviews for money? Not ad sales for good reviews, I mean more along the lines of telling publishers, "I think Fracture has some potential, but it was about 10 Gs short of being a 4 out of 5.  Know what I'm sayin, Homes?"

If they aren't even prepping for this until Sept. 29th, that 5 hour G4 special is on the 25th is going to be pretty boring.

The funny thing about this is, I went through that entire game saying, "I psyched your ass out, bitch" every time I rewound time also. Great minds think alike!

Way to give out the Gas Face.
