Is this guy for real? It's the readers' fault? Jesus tap-dancing Christ, I've seen it all now.

Eh while I wouldn't put the loin's share of blame on readers, there's enough blame for everyone to go around.

And readers do reward companies that engage in shenanigans. If you're the type that considers day-one purchases, the pre-launch review is a big deal for you probably, and so you reward companies that butter up game publishers in order to get that advanced shit.

So I think the entire industry clue to earring shares some of the blame pie.

I can't buy the "We can't afford to tell you the truth because you won't pony up the chedda' for it!" argument, which is what the author is pitching. That's different from your contention that readers aren't discriminating enough in most cases (which I do agree with). He has the nerve to call Robert Florence a naive outsider because he DARES to question the status quo. If I was Robert Florence, I'd tell this author to go fuck himself.

As an aside, I'm just curious - what does "clue to earring" mean?
