Game developer in bed with gaming journalist.

Man, I never knew the gaming industry was filled with so much drama.

I do hope this slime ball gets what she deserves.

This whole little issue has got me thinking. Now that we have the internet, does the gaming journalist industry help us the consumer at all? I can't think of a single valuable thing journalists do that actually requires them.

Thanks to things like Reddit, the community itself can interview the developers. Message boards allow us to gather facts about the positives and negatives of a game far more accurately than some people who probably played a couple of hours at most of the game in question. NeoGAF appears to be the source of all "insider" information about developers anyways, with journalists just hopping onto the reporting bandwagon.

Like, maybe I'm missing something, but professional video game journalism seems like a huge joke and a huge waste of everyone's time.

edit- I should have skimmed first. I see the link has been shared. Just don't like seeing this story buried.

if the gaming journalist was SSSniperwolf or that RPG chick (you know, the one who smells good and love playing Dragon Age and The Witcher?), I don't see what the problem is.

I don't see why this needs to be the internet's business. Somebody is bitter from a failed relationship so they need to blog about it? Tough s***.

2 reasons.

1. it shows corruption in the gaming journalism industry (course any idiot should already know that)

2. everyone thinks everyone wants to know the details of their pathetic existence or else social media as a whole wouldn't be as big as it is.

She profited financially by sleeping with gaming journalists who are now trying to silence the story. Of course the internet is interested.

All I can really say at this point is, "Why am I not surprised?"...


On second though, let me elaborate...

Figuratively being in bed with each other was a given for me, but literally being in bed with each other isn't exactly a shocking development to tell the truth.

And seriously, no matter how much of this is true or not, it really hasn't changed my opinion on the current state of gaming "journalism". I mean, either way this is just plain sad, and I just can't say I'm surprised. You know?
