I remember Acclaim had a marketing campaign where they would give parents $10,000 if they named their child Turok. Don't know if someone actually did it, but yea that happened, someone at Acclaim thought that was a good idea but I guess after you agree to publish BMX XXX you've proven there's no ethical or moral barrier you aren't willing to cross.
I just read Brad’s review and watched the quick look of Steel Battalion, and while I believe that finishing games gives you a better overall view of the game, and lets you write a better review, I also believe Brad was totally justified in not finishing this game, but I feel that way because I trust Brad as a reviewer, and while I don’t always agree with him, I’m confident in his judgment to not finish the game and still write the review.
That said I’m going to paraphrase, and I apologize if I get this wrong it was a long time ago, I believe Shawn Elliott in a GFW podcast about the subject of reviewing games without finishing them.

I think the Fresh Prince is awesome, but I voted for Jared, because the conversations his appearances prompted on the Giant Bombcast led me to knowing the entire history of the Tekken franchise, having never played a single round of Tekken in my entire life. And for that i salute you Jared Rae
by the way as someone that lives in São Paulo, i gotta say im pretty impressed with the portuguese voice acting, usually games and movies that take place in Brazil, have characters that are supposed to be Brazilian but talk in broken portuguese ( Fast Five did that with some characters, and the Hulk movie with Ed Norton) but this sounds spot on.
