I have no idea. I found it in the bowels of the internet. Looks weird but my guess is that's because it was slapped in paint and made into a jpg (which explains the fuzz) but legit. Either way, lol.

edit: then again the red lines are bleeding off the page. still funny though

I think 8.8 is fair for Twilight Princess. Twice in the game (wolf parts both times) I said [censored] it and didn't play for a few days. I started again only after being convinced to keep going by one or both of Chuckleslovakian or MadTown.

I don't think a game which is that frustrating should get more than 9/10.

I thought TP was a reasonably good game, but I prefer a more stringent point allocation (namely ave=5 rather than 7). I'd give TP an 8.

In the growing wake of the controversy surrounding GameSpot's alleged firing of editorial director Jeff Gerstmann comes a little bit of surprising solidarity.

A bunch of Ziff Davis staffers (including 1Up) made a banner to show their support for fellow game reviewers and marched it the two blocks to the GameSpot building on Friday. The banner, and impromptu march, shows that despite being competition, what may have happened at GameSpot could have wide-spread implications in the game publication industry.

We're also told that the Kane & Lynch user reviews on Gamespot have been, at least temporarily, disabled and there are rumors that people are canceling their Gamespot accounts "en masse."

Good to see other publications see the problems this could cause.
