Not a big fan of GiantBomb either though, they are often too far on the other side of the industry apologism scale for my liking. Jeff especially used to shit all over PC gaming regularly when I listened so I eventually just unsubbed and stopped going to the website. They are pretty shitty at playing games too which made me question a lot of the reviews. I'm not saying every reviewer has to be a pro but I remember watching quite a few vids where Jeff or Ryan would just arbitrarily declare things about a game due to mistakes they were making or tutorials they ignored.

Well, trying to play a game while also providing simultaneous commentary on it is a lot harder than you may think. They've also made a point of saying that their Quick Look videos are not reviews and I've often found their reviews about games they were down on in videos to be much more positive once they've had a chance to play them by themselves. I kind of remember what you're saying about Jeff and PC gaming but he's definitely come around on that. They do a lot of PC focused segments now and pretty much the entire crew there has their PCs hooked up to their TVs now. Patrick's a raving Apple fanboy which is frustrating but he tends to keep that to his Twitter feed. But to each his own of course.

The way they approached this E3 I like because they said "There were problems that are representative of bigger industry issues" that they spent time on but they also took a point I put in my blog recently along the lines of "Anyone whining there was nothing good or original at this year's show didn't look hard enough." Compared to Tim Rogers though, moss on a rock has an opinion I'd rather listen to though.

Kotaku has always been shitty, I don't even give them click traffic anymore as it just fuels the cycle.

Never thought I'd agree with CJ_Parker but he's pretty much got the gist of it. Though I do feel the sentiment this year was more negative in the media than before and with no real good reason. I'm listening to this week's Giant Bombcast and it's nice to hear some straight talk from them. They had their legitimate criticisms but their impressions generally were "there was a lot of awesome stuff, stop whining guys." But Kotaku will do whatever to drive clicks, including letting that hack Tim Rogers spew his pretentious text walls. Who the fuck is this guy to apologize for E3? It's not his show. Shut up Tim, you don't matter.

There isn't a single gawker media site worth reading.

This. A thousand times this.

It takes a lot to make The Huffington Post look distinguished and professional in comparison, and Gawker manages to do it.

When is Kotaku going to apologize for Kotaku?

They definitely need to. or better, yet, just go away and never write anything again. They aren't only an embarrassment to gaming, they are detrimental to the cause of changing public perception that games are still for kids. Anything that can be done in movies and books should be equally fair game in games; instead, idiots like the Kotaku crowd cry like bitches about it and continually undermine gaming's chance at becoming respected as a mature medium.

I'm sad I had to read all 6000 words of that article...

Same retarded dumbass procedure as every fucking year... "ooh this E3 sucked so much, it was like the most boring and the worst evah".
You know what? They could show fucking Duke 5, Half-Life 3, Doom 4, X-Wing vs TIE 2, Unreal 3, Ultima X, Thief 4, The Elder Scrolls VI, Fallout 4, Might & Magic X, Wizardry IX, Jedi Knight Dark Forces 3, The Witcher 3 and Vampire: The Clown Brigade all at the same fucking E3 in the same fucking year and fuckers from the fucked up media would still be fucking complaining about some fucking non-issue or another. Phuck and ignore dat! Seriously. Word.
