I assume this site wishes to be treated as a reputable news outlet, yes? Stunts like this do the exact opposite.
There are more eloquent and, dare I say, mature ways of voicing displeasure. This thread, however, is about as intelligent as a crap-slinging ape.

There's a reason why decent and reputable developers, such as Gearbox, don't bother with this site. Look no further than this thread for an example.

No, Gearbox doesn't visit this site because they are staffed by a bunch of pussies who couldn't handle it when rumors were swirling around that Colonial Marines got the rug pulled out from under it and that Borderlands wasn't worth the time or effort.

Instead of manning up and laughing it off they played "I'm going to take my ball and go home." which is a total laugh riot when you consider the idea that most people loved Borderlands and if they had grown some balls and stuck around they could have totally had the last laugh on me and anyone else who didn't think Borderlands was going to be any good.

I don't really get why this is considered a stunt. Nothing about his post states that it is gospel.

Also are you authorized to speak for Gearbox, or did you just put on your own ape suit?

Am I authorized to speak for Gearbox? No.
Did I witness Evil Avatar sling shit at Gearbox and Randy Pitchford himself in the last of many inflammatory Borderlands threads? Yes.
I watched it as it all "went down", and not a single person from Gearbox has been back since. I can only assume they want nothing more to do with a site like this due to the behavior of the man in charge.

Threads like this are childish, immature and embarrassing. Clearly, I'm the only member of the minority...so, fair enough. You win. Have at it.

I found it amusing at first, when it was in its build phase. It lost its subtly and humor quickly though.

Yeah, that part I do not agree with. But at least you didn't dare insult the quality of the reviews around here. You're only allowed to claim reviews are poorly written, without offering to do them for free using your own games, if they are on another site such as IGN or Gamespot.

Does IGN or Gamespot still exist?

Ever wonder who someone is talking to when they end their posts in questions?

Yet they were totally comfortable participating here when it was other developers who were under the microscope. What a bunch of hypocrites.

I'll give you that; they're not innocent. Like most folks, they don't care until it's their own feathers being ruffled.

It still doesn't justify the behavior on our end, though. While they didn't speak up for others, they still left for a reason.

This is the only gaming "news" site I visit. You know why? Because it isn't really a news site. It's basically a message board that happens to have a news topic as the front page. The posts are by actual people, saying what they think. If you go to IGN or Gamespot or one of those shitty sites, you have no idea what you're getting. The stories feel like every word was decided on in committee and approved through corporate executives. The news and reviews are literally indistinguishable from company press releases and marketing materials.

I would rather read what real people have to say and occasionally get pissed off or wonder why they have to be so stupid than choke on the same marketing bullshit you get everywhere else. If you don't like it, you can fuck right off and come back when you learn how to communicate like a human being. You won't be missed.

You mean you actually take this site seriously? There's a splinter site for those who want nothing but serious, professional game news. I appreciate the Evil... this site should become The Onion of game journalism. The top two posted videos are HILARIOUS!

Considering that just about everything we post is legitimate news (with a few exceptions here and there) and not just "for the lulz", calling us the Onion is certainly a misnomer.

This place used to be "serious" almost respectable ...with attitude. I expect it to become even more popular haven for those unhappy with conventional "gamer" sites; essentially paid proxy and markering sites for the publishers. Its pretty clear UBI is trying to kill PC gaming. No one should buy this.

Well said, and that's why this site is my home page.
