So this is disturbing isn’t it… If you haven’t heard yet it is rumoured that Gamespot reviewer, Jeff Gerstmann, has been fired because he gave Kane & Lynch a bad review which was then published amongst a huge amount of Kane & Lynch advertising…
Penny-Arcade have been quick to describe the situation in their own special way and Kotaku, who appeared to have broken the story, has a Digg count of 1512 (and quickly climbing) at the time of writing.
I have always been a fan of Gamespot but unless this turns out to be a complete hoax I know that I won’t be believing any of their future reviews.
However if these publishers want to send some of that huge advertising budget this way I can still be bought…. I’ll even give Lost Planet a 10/10 for enough money 🙂
