He's a lawyer doing this part time. The reason why you're getting a bullshit non-apology apology is that he's a lawyer and parses every fucking thing he does so that it could be interpreted any way you care to.

LOL! I find it pretty amusing because, as someone who has studied some law, you learn to keep your facts pretty damn straight. Honestly it sounds more like (as you suggest) he's reviewing games as a hobby with a "not on the job" mentality (subjective) and is applying way too much personality. That's fine for indie review sites, but any serious publication (or one that intends to be taken seriously, like GameSpot), that just doesn't cut it. Frankly, it's unprofessional.
