"Doom and gloom for gearbox" A little melodramatic if you ask me.

lol. Kindly provide a source outside of the two that you know of already? However, I will admit outside of those 2 sources yes I didn't hear anything along those line.
Ok. Next I will prove Newtonian physics, but won't refer to any calculations Newton used or calculus or even algebra!!

There's a reason I said besides those two. They're famous for overhyping things more than almost any other big name review sites. I should have explained my reasoning, and I apologize.
And on a considerably more subjective note:
IGN is one of the most reviled big name gaming websites on the internet, providing some of the least insightful professional reviews I've ever read on several games, mainly discussing things that you would only know after spending a few hours with the games they review.
It's a shame, because there's so much content on their website. They cover such a wide variety of forms of entertainment that it's not even funny.
And don't get me wrong, I'm not gamespots biggest fan either, but at least I've gotten a lot of tangible information out of the bloody website. They're one the masters of covering what the reviewer considers a game's strengths and weaknesses in around 50 words or less.
In any case, once again you created a very intelligent response, and I thank you for that.
Project Beat a Game a Day, along with my Daily NES Archive:
I agree, but gamespot and IGN are the main sources for "gaming news" outside of the big conventions/demos. It is unfortunate.
I might add you are the most polite poster I've ever ran into on gamefaqs. KUDOS TO YOU SIR!
