Consistency, thy name is NOT Entertainment Weekly

So, yesterday we talked about how Entertainment Weekly voted Kirby's Epic Yarn the single worst game of 2010. While a bizarre choice in a year that saw games full of real technical, design and visual flaws, EW is entitled to its opinion.

Its bizarre logic that the game was "too cute" was the really stupid thing, however, and it seems that things have gotten stupider. See, Entertainment Weekly actually reviewed Kirby's Epic Yarn when it came out, and it seems that the "overwhelming" adorability wasn't a problem back then. In fact, the game scored a B+. 

Here's what the review says. Bear in mind this is the ENTIRE review, as well. They work hard at EW:

A pink globe gets plopped into a world constructed of colorful twine and craftsy cloth, and the result is likely the most adorable game ever. Yes, it's kinda easy, but you'll never stop smiling. B+

And that, friends, is grounds for being picked as the worst game of the year. Amazing, isn't it? They say that "real game journalists" are the worst writers around, but so long as editorially inconsistent publications like EW are around, I think I'll be sleeping easy at night. 

Does it really matter what EW thinks about games? I know some of you have asked that, and that answer is no. However, is it entertaining to laugh at what EW thinks about games? Absolutely! And I think that a publication called Entertainment Weekly could certainly appreciate that!

Eternal Sonata PS3 exclusive character screens

During my entire time spent playing Eternal Sonata on the Xbox 360, all I wanted to do was play as Prince Crescendo, not least because he's voiced by Cam Clarke who I kind of love. It makes me bubble with envy then, that the ...more

Eternal Sonata for PS3 will feature new playable characters

I used to hate the early Xbox years when a title like Silent Hill 2 for PS2 would hit, and then shortly afterwards a version for Xbox with more content would appear. Seems the process is being console reversed now: Eternal So...more
