    I bet this happens more often than we’d like to think.

    I’m not all that invested in getting ahold of Mr Becker, I want a shot at that game.

    Lots of news this week guys. Under an hour and loads of content; a quality production!

  2. “I bet this happens more often than we’d like to think.”

    Exactly. As I intimated on the podcast, this is like a little chink in the formidable wall of PR defence. Looking through it, a little shaft of light is shone upon the unseemly things crawling beneath. Now we may suppose what is actually transpiring therein, and how much worse and widespread it probably is.

  3. You know what really, really disgusts me? All these bad business practices come out, the shills, the paid liars, the misinformation agents… and you still hear so many people willing to try and talk up excuses for it. For god’s sakes, are we so pathetic as a people today that we want to rationalize lies? That it’s acceptable for us to -expect- lies, just because, “lol, business”?
    Makes me sicker than words can express. And it’s existence in the gaming media stems from a larger social problem that’s bigger than I can begin to tackle. I’m just bloody sick of it.

  4. Holy shit, Lusi. I forgot about you planning to us Bon Jovi at the halfway point. Nearly made me crash on my way home from work.

  5. My goodness! Runescape cards enjoy a four star rating on Amazon,no doubt achieved through the patronage of Runestone King and 147 members of his extended family!!

  6. @Lusi: No, but I was livin’ on a prayer to make it – I swear.

  7. Yes, thanks to Lusi I was able to tell exactly when I was half-way there!

  8. I was confused, but the explanation near the end made me laugh. Usually when you hear someone crack a joke about editing something in they don’t actually end up doing it.

  9. @DiceAdmiral: That’s because I am LAZY and also FORGETFUL. But this time I remembered!
