4. Do Z P Reviews Influence Videogame Sales Nov 16, 2008, 18:54 rist3903
I think he has a much more noticable effect when talking about older titles that a lot of people missed.

I purchased Psychonauts based on one of his rants about how people don't play good games such as that one and was very much entertained by it.

On a possibly very important but incredibly tangential side-note I went to the site that hosts said reviews to refresh my memory on what it was about the Psychonauts review that piqued my interest and my browser got all upset and told me this:

Potential clickjacking/UI Redressing attempt!

NoScript intercepted a mouse or keyboard interaction with a partially hidden element.

I am not linking the site in question as I don't want anyone potentially harmed by this if it is indeed malicious. They have been notified, and you have been warned.
