Why are you awake at this hour? Isn't there a soul sucking MMO you should be attending to?
Well, since you're up, I wanted to let you know that we're undergoing a little site maintenance to take down the epicness that was Cashwh0re and roll back to our old name, but under a new mantra that better reflects the state of the industry: DESTRUCTOID - The hardcore Gamer community WHERE REVIEWS ARE NOT FOR SALE. I know it may look like it had something to do with Jeff getting fired from Gamespot for giving a crap game a bad review, but I assure you that it is just a coincidence. We gave it an 11/10 - best game ever, ever, ever.
Are we to blame for their bad press? Hardly. I think Billy Joel said it best: "We didn't start the fire, so don't taze me, bro." We're just happy to spread the word about Jeff's unethical dismissal, which actually would also be a great phrase to describe a profane sex act ... Oh, I know! it's when you take a dump on a partner immediately after sex and then lock them in the bedroom, dissappear for a week, then you pretend you never defecated and blame it on THEM.
So has Gamespot/C|NET given a heartfelt apology to Jeff and their community yet? Nope. That would require COJONES, which are apparently hard to come by when you're not independently owned. Instead, they're repeatedly denying the whole thing while simultaneously announcing that they have no plans to review Kane and Lynch for the PC any time soon.I bet they are busy shopping his job around in the office asking staff members to pay tributes to him for a possible promotion. Well then, we're all sure it was just a coincidence that Jeff was locked out of his office abruptly, the video review was pulled, and a handful of other key people quit. Ahem. So I offer this brief open letter, if anyone's listening...
Special thanks to everyone who provided feedback on the new upcoming site layout. both staff and community. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all journalists and webmasters that rallied together in supporting the Cashwh0re parody. Look mom, 26,800 web sites link to cashwh0re! How's that for freedom of the press?
