Pretentious, opinionated language

Games, technology, music, silliness. Oh and ninjas. Lots of ninjas.

The gaming press sucks

I'm going to keep this short and sweet:

The western gaming press today is less informative than it is opinionated. The focus on technology over gameplay is a direct result of how the press scores games. We hardly had this kind of thing in the early 90s.

Less opinions on what's next, what's new and what's going to be awesome. More information on what *is* awesome. Gamespot are decent.. Gamespy are crap. IGN are crap. Avault's articles are completely irrelevant and utterly meaningless.

Guys. You are members of the press, not "cool g's who play games and get paid to talk about it". Show some responsibility. Gamespy.com is a fucking rat's asshole of opinions nobody needs to hear, certainly not people looking to make decisions on what games to buy. Avault needs to stop publishing articles written by wackos who think handhelds will eventually threaten pc gaming (which is akin to saying skateboards threaten mountain biking).

Find out how your company rates by using a little known rating system!

Is your company a Scam, Dud, Scheme, Fraud Or Good Opportunity?.

95% of the money-making opportunities on the internet have been worked to death or are not suitable to be marketed through the internet. How does your company and/or opportunity rate… I’ll leave it to you to decide if your service, product and/or money making opportunity falls in this category.

Hurry you may NOT be happy with what you will find!

I found a company that pays $10 - $50/hr for shopping the classifieds!

Work At Home $10 - $50/hr Easy part/full time work, no boss, no commute, no set hours, paid every 12 days..

I'm making over $500 a day with this company and will be happy to help you do the same.

Hurry postions are filling fast!

Hello ##NAME##, I find it very refreshing to occasionally find a postsuch as yours with a different topic completely to what I was looking for. It often ads to ones list of lifes experiences.

I tend to have a soft spot for blogs related to article writing tips and /or sites that have a central theme around article writing tips type items.

Once again, thank you, hope you don't mind if I visit again sometime :-)
