None of this would be happening without that pesky internet. I remember the good old days. Back then if you wanted to argue with someone about ethics in game journalism, you had to do it in person. Lawn, off, etc.
@humanity: being from Oregon I can tell you it's not a boring setting. The atmosphere could be great and if it's near the coastal line like Astoria or Newport that could make for a beautiful, haunting setting. There's also mountains, forests(as you mentioned), deserts, city, etc. I think Oregon is a great place and I'm pretty excited to see a game set in my home state. I'd like to see if they can nail the feel of Oregon
