CNET blasts EA and Take-Two for using the press  photo



There's a joke in this and I am going to mercilessly ram it into the ground for no reason other than to be an ass. So brace yourselves ...

CNET, a company that has absolutely no experience in being used by videogames companies, has blasted EA and Take-Two for negotiating their notorious hostile takeover struggles through the gaming press. 

"I know it's nothing new in the fast-paced world of hostile takeovers, tender offers, and other forms of mergers and acquisitions," states an insulted Daniel Terdiman, "but it's beyond obvious that both Take-Two and EA are using the press -- and our outreach to the public -- to try to negotiate the best terms in whatever marriage the two eventually end up in."

For the record, doing a Google "site:www.news.com +"take-two" +EA +takeover" search throws up 296 hits. Just thought I'd point that out (for extra assness). 

"Basically, I just want to tell EA and Take-Two and every other set of companies that decides the best way to achieve their selfish takeover goals is to use the press that, well, I don't want to be used," is Terdiman's courageous response. Now if only Jeff Gerstmann could have said the same thing. Oh wait, he couldn't, because he got fired from GameSpot actually!

Dragon Age: Inquisition combat makes me want to play Final Fantasy XII

Let's be fair, a lot of seemingly arbitrary things make me want to replay Final Fantasy XII. A lack of time coupled with a naive hope for an HD re-release always keep me from doing so, leaving me in a perpetual state of want...more
