Well it sure is in poor taste from MCV but that dumb bitch had it coming.

Classy.

Yep, it is what it is.

it is what it is being misogyny, obviously

In what way is that misogyny?

(bitch)

fortunately he edited it to idiot which makes everyone happy (and I personally agree with, though I blame England's libel laws more than her since this wouldn't have escalated like this in America)

No, the point was that totilo posted something on how he wanted to engage in good games journalism and then he posted that unboxing video as if that wasn't good games journalism for whatever reason.

I mean what's the difference between that video and the skyrim statue unboxing?

No....it all ALL together. The Rab Florence Article about Game journalists too close to PR, and the thing that made everyone look at it Wainrights legal threats the editing. then His Totitlo's uncaring attitude towards it and his declaration of Good Games Journalism. Followed with "Top Story" is unboxing $500 of Halo that was sent to them for FREE.

As if to Imply they were bought off and on top of that. Good Games journalism apparently is show off our free stuff. Its a purely cynical. If you have an ounce of positivity to anything in life...you will not get it. You have to be a cynical asshole...I am one.

Skyrim Statue unboxing was the GB'ers standing around going .We didn't ask for this...if someone had asked.....we would have said no...AWW fuck...what are we gonna do with this....um...can we....like get rid of it...oh shit we cant move it once its built, with the end of the letter being, WE LEFT IT IN THE OLD OFFICE!! FUCK THAT THING!

we have the context for that skyrim shit, you and me, but who else does? Just as YOU don't have the context for the kotaku unboxing shit. They got the thing for free, so they decided to show it off to see if other people might want the same thing; it is good purchasing advice even if it isn't the most hard hitting journalism out there.

@Turambar: see that's what I thought he was going to say so I was real confused when he posted an unboxing video and not anything posted by... oh god I forget his name. Kirk Hamilton, innit? that guy that posts those terrible posts about Japan?

... I don't get your point; what's wrong with unboxing videos exactly?

The point is it was sent free to them. And that is part of the Rabs original Article of Game journalist being technically paid off with free stuff from PR, as PR people ARE ALWAYS trying to influence them.

That is why its a funny picture.

Spec Ops: The Line. I mean justifiably so, that game was nowhere near perfect. But dude it was freakin' Spec Ops: The Line! Analytical books that I have the intent to read are being written about it!

That's only because it was just popular enough for that shit to happen. You can do that about plenty of things, that thing alone does not a deep game make.

I find it hilarious that no one talks about Polygon's game journalism. Whenever this site is mentioned, it's always about their weird-ass advertising policies. Talk about a rough start for these guys.

easy solution to this problem

don't have weird ass advertising policies
