The GameSpot Controversy As A Window Into The Planet Of Gaming Journalism

Comic Vine and Giant Bomb have been pretty intimately linked for a extended time now, sharing user accounts and login information, but going forward, Comic Vine accounts will be a lot more closely linked to GameSpot accounts in terms of login specifics and passwords. The primary challenge with IGN has always been their critiques and overview scoring look to adhere to no requirements or logic (insert the old joke about IGN’s scoring system being amongst 8-10, with eight being a terrible game). On March 15, 2012, it was announced that CBS Interactive , the parent corporation of GameSpot operator CNET, had acquired the Giant Bomb and Comic Vine internet sites from Whiskey Media. The irony in Gamespot expanding their editorial side in every little thing but video games.
