The point I'm trying to make is it sounds like EGM is "taking the high road" by not caving in to pressure. But really they are just trying to circumvent the issue by releasing a roundtable discussion, then maybe a review afterwards.
They aren't doing this because of some moral code they live by; its because they don't want to upset a publisher and still want to get free games and previews, which is all well and good.
But this is a system they helped foster all these years. So after all this time cozying up to publishers, NOW they're going to take a stand?
