Luc Bernard has hissy fit over Destructoid’s Eternity’s Child review

Thursday, 7th August 2008 06:39 GMT By Patrick Garratt

According to this Destructoid piece, Eternity’s Child developer Luc Bernard has decided to remove the site’s robotic mascot from his game after it posted a review that chose to “kind of call Eternity’s Child the worst game ever made and then everyone said ‘Fuck you Luc,’ when he called our reviewers unprofessional.”

Bernard went a bit postal in the review’s comments after the 1/10 score was published, and the removal of Mr Destructoid from the platformer is described in that story as a “a bitter attempt at a cheap shot.”

    So it’s right that Destructoid use their media platform to comment on his work but it’s wrong for him to use his media platform to comment on theirs.

    Nice double standards at work there.

    Sounds a lot like the critics not liking being criticised to me.

    Oh, I think they’re OK with criticism of themselves, they’re just rubbing salt into Luc’s wounds… wait that’s actually worse behaviour!

    If it’s a bad game, it’s a bad game. They reviewed it, they’re SUPPOSED to say it’s a bad game if it’s a bad game, it’s the maker’s fault, not the reviewer’s.

    For once, I actually agree with Shatner.

    Then again, Destructoid aren’t known for their credibility. There’s a reason nobody wants to do PR with them; this is one of them.

    As a full-time writer myself, I’ve dealt with Luc before, and always found him to be someone who is overly sensitive to even constructive criticism; he’s certainly replied angrily on our site before now. I can’t say I’m surprised by his reaction here.
