GamePro - Cliffy B Calls Eurogamer 'Haters' for Gears of War 3 Review Score.
But one particular jab at Eurogamer for their Gears of War 3 review is currently running as headline news, particularly because Destructoid's Jim Sterling pointed out the hubris of Bleszinski's statement that Eurogamer's Johnny Minkley was a "hater" for giving Gears of War 3 an 8 out of 10, where other outlets have given higher scores.

Fact is, Cliffy B should be extremely happy that Gears of War 3 is so critically acclaimed among the gaming press... even though his latest game is performing so well, it's a shame that he can't see the forest for the trees. In Sterling's own words, "a man who is currently swimming in perfect review scores" to be "getting upset because he didn't get just a handful more" comes off as "unbelievably vulgar."

Jim Sterling isn't wrong.

So, declare his game a perfect or you are labeled a "hater?"

I would love to go on a huge range bashing Teary B., but he is not worth it. He is a narcissitic jerk - end of story.
As if this series does not have certain flaws...
