Eidos asks journalists to hold off on negative reviews

As someone who is majoring in “real journalism” in college atm this kind of thing blows my mind. If you were to openly and publicly attempt anything like this with a credible news outlet you’d be the laughingstock of the world overnight.

But in “Games Journalism”? That’s just how we roll, brah. I know I don’t need to belabor the point but the sheer amount of fundamental, News Ethics 101 type concepts that “games journalism” is expected to just merrily steamroll over right out in the open with a big dopey grin on its face just never fails to floor me.
