Details: Jeff Gerblestem (w/e his last name was) reviewed the game but gave it an incredibly low score, thrashing it as broken and aweful. Meanwhile Gamespot.com had adverts everywhere on its site for the game. Allegedly Gamespot.com was paid, or 'convinced' to review the game good and pretty much Jeff didn't play ball.
Was fired for it shortly after.
EDIT: It starts at 1:22 unless you wanna watch the whole thing... its short and is only reference to it material.
I play a lil bit of everything on a lil bit of everything. Not changing this until we get a Viewtiful Joe 3 or HD collection of VJ 1&2 (started 8/14/12)
Am I the only one here who thinks Kevin VanOrd is an excellent reviewer? He is harsh but that is exactly what makes him good. He doesn't give 9.0s to every fairly well constructed game like a lot of critics do.
