But, sometimes I just feel like bitching and it isn't really of academic integrity, but still deserves recognition I believe. That is what this blog is going to be comprised of mostly now.
I don't follow G4 very closely (and by that I mean not at all) partially because I don't think they think very hard when they'e trying to think and partially because I don't like them pandering to me by paying off really hot models to talk about subjects that they know nothing about (seriously...if ESPN can find attractive girls who are knowledgable about football, we should be able to do it with gaming).
That being said, Kotaku (the lesser of the two evils in this situation) linked me back to an old G4 article on Alan Wake and Product Placement. Now bear in mind that this article is from 2010, but it still bothered me when I read this line: "The argument about whether games are Art is ridiculous in the face of this kind of evidence -- it's obvious games are commerce."
Hold on...first of all, isn't this the pot calling the kettle black? Or does that not count because you aren't saying it through the mouthpiece of Layla Kayleigh?
