I feel like everyone's totally missing the point of that Destructoid thing. His firing isn't what's unethical, they were well within their rights to do so. Blacklisting him is illegal though. Telling other media outlets not to talk to him is unethical.

I don't give a shit about the goals of Gamer Gate or ethics in the gaming press, but regardless of what anybody says I think that's a pretty damn good example of corruption.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Saving up for a PS4 I'm getting on Wednesday, so I just needed something short that I didn't have to buy until then. Figured I might as well play this while I'm hot on the heels of MGS4, so I borrowed it from a friend.

Re "gamers are dead" and the "high school jock approach", are you talking about this: http://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/224400/Gamers_dont_have_to_be_your_audience_Gamers_are_over.php

It seems like there are many people who utterly misunderstood the point Leigh was trying to make, some of whom have proven that same point by their childish and shameless reactions.

I never read that article, but if so many people misunderstood the point so bad, then that sounds like the article's fault not theirs.

But it's not like there isn't a dearth of Bayonetta 2 footage online right now anyway. All you need to do is search Youtube and you'll get tons of videos of the Japanese version of the game.

Doesn't that just make it dumber?

Not really. All it means is that press outlets that agreed to the embargo have to follow it. If an independent outlet gets an overseas copy, there's nothing preventing them from making video since they didn't have to agree to an embargo to get a copy of the game. Besides that, there's been plenty of pre-release footage online for some time now, whether it be from Youtubers with overseas copies, Nintendo themselves at various streamting events, or hell, just download the demo and try it yourself. Between all of those resources and the various written reviews that have been published, there is literally no need for a Giant Bomb Quick Look at this very instant in time.

That totally makes it dumber. You can watch literally the entire game online right now, but they won't let press outlets post footage of it, even though they've all reacted really positively. This restriction serves no one.

It's under some weird embargo from Nintendo. They've said something to that effect a few times.

Personally I think that's foolish on Nintendo's part, but it is what it is.

I don't need an ethical standard because I found dudes I trust, and they present games to me in a really honest format.
