    VG why don’t you go do some journalism and ask Glu Mobile what was the point of them buying GameSpy? Why do they shutter it? And tings like that. Journalism doesn’t just mean reporting on things, it is also be active and asking the proper questions, because you are not some small time hobby blog, that can think nobody will take it seriously, but on of the biggest.

    @1: Couldn’t agree more. Most of the so called “games journalism” is centered around reporting news posts/trailers, spreading gossip, and reposting original findings from other sites. However, the latter is few and far between.

    Good thing they at least save the multiplayer on their gems.
