I think the fact that Gamespot is lobbying Metacritic to change the review is evidence that they're under some inappropriate pressure from the publisher. Otherwise, merely correcting the errors on their own site would be enough for them. That is the limit of Gamespot's responsibility.
It's an indie, self-published title. Unless they have some insane level of pressure they can lever that Bethesda couldn't in order to raise Fallout: New Vegas scores...

Metacritic is the industry-standard grading system. A black mark there sticks with a developer forever, earned or not.

Damn, I just read this...
