The Indie Mine - Paid Game Reviews- A Step in the Wrong Direction. Based on this blog post.
Above all else, it looks shady from the outside. Developers should never risk their credibility or reputation on the off chance of coverage. But there’s something more troubling than credibility at stake here. If this was to become a widespread policy across the majority of media sites, you’re going to be looking at an empty wallet to go with those shredded reputations. If we let this become a precedent, it’s sure to spell more trouble for both yourselves and the developers of the future.

Out of the Blue

My reprieve from yard work yesterday turned sour when the heating guy showed up to find out why the heat on the second floor isn't working. Flash forward to midnight, where I am paying off the plumber for a few hours work installing new relief tanks, a few other new fixtures, and a new pressure reduction valve, as our old one had failed, leaving our home plumbing to deal with water pressure intended to distribute water over several square miles. And at the end of it all, only one radiator out of three on that floor actually gets hot, and the other two just warm up a bit, so we never even completely solved the original problem. Joy.
