Okay I am normally not so bad on message boards.. but..

Damn it all ..

Title of the Thread was: Boycott the Fascist Regime Known as PC Gamer!!!

And this gamer post the following.

I just received my latest issue of PC Gamer and was working my way to the article: HL2 Dev Secrets Revealed!!! (or something), when I stumbled upon two reviews...

1. World of Warcraft
2. Everquest 2

World of Warcraft they gave something around a 91% to.
Everquest 2 got a...78%!

I hate this Goddamn magazine! I also subscribe to PC Gaming Monthly, and I must say how much I absolutely enjoy that magazine. PC Gamer is the Mobil Gas of the gaming magazine world, the top dog, the one pulling in the most profit. I think they do it by getting to be the first to "test" a game; I think they are the first because they promise the company of the game in question that they will give it a great review. I've seen this over and over again with this magazine, and even the Editor-in-Chief of PC Gaming Monthly mentioned in a letter that they were trying to be the first to review DOOM III, but Id was like, "Yes, but only if you give us a score of no less than [whatever]." PC Gaming Monthly, of course, turned it down. Guess who got to do the very first review of DOOM III? That's right: PC Gamer. They gave it something like a 96%.

I hate PC Gamer. It feels like the MTV of the PC gamer magazines. So sold out, pre-packaged, pop-cultured nonsense. Please, people, don't stand for this spoon fed sold-my-soul-to-the-devil corporation of money grubbers.

I group PC Gamer in the same world as reality TV and medicated children: just don't do it.

WTF ....

So another post.. goes by

Another gamer:

How about - Who gives a rats [expletive ninja'd by Faarbot]?? If this has nothing to do with EQ2 then WHY THE HELL IS IT ON THIS BOARD?

Just go away and we will pretend you never spoke

the dumb ass gamer replies back

EQ2 was the catalyst. The "case-in-point," if you will. The--work with me here--example used! And Veradin, don't be a d!ck, please. Keep in mind that you're telling me to leave the thread that I started.

As far as the argument that they're professionals, and therefore incapable of wrong-doings...uh, Martha Stewart. Uh, Enron! Here, this might help...


My response on this ..

Uhhh.. Moron.. sorry hunny I hate name calling but Enron and Martha Stewart are totally on a different topic. If you knew anything about invesements and money you would have never mention those two events in the same sentence nor on this board.

Then what does he do?

Well another gamer comes in and post

Then dont buy, subscribe to, or read the magazine and you wont be helping their "fascist regime".

Oh where is that dancing lock when I need it?

Dumb ass gamer replies

But smart gamer, what you have failed to recognize is that what I was trying to do is help you. Or help anyone for that matter who was unaware of PC Gamer's unscrupulous methods.

But what I have gotten, instead, is people jumping down my throat, acting as though they're doing me a favor by posting on my thread telling me how perfectly wrong I am. A moron, as one poster wrote, I believe, before continuing on in an ineptly bumbling fashion, displaying a grasp of the English language equaled only by addlebrained children and monkeys. I try always to be polite and gentlemanly, but I've fallen terribly short. Before posting anything, I now must ask myself: do I really feel like picking a fight? Because that is what seems to happen. Everytime. Without fail.

But alas, you know what they say about the road to Hell. Good intentions and all that. Bah!

My reply to the whining.

I think you to fail to realize no matter if you are doing a favor to others as to informing us of your opinion and views on PC Gamer review on EQ II vs. WoW’s higher rating. You need to have more rock hard proof than just this information you are spouting out. It seems to be more of a personal disagreement than something that is worth posting on this board. If it was crucial information that would help EQ II gamers or any products of SOE I would think we would have heard something by now by others. And besides that you do realize that when a company is getting a review from a magazine, they get a copy of the review from the magazine company?

Oh yeah I guess you didn’t do your homework before posting this.

thank god the thread got locked down.

OMG, EQ got a 78% boohoo wah wah.

If the mag was such a sell-out, then wouldn't it have also gotten EQ? Then given that a high rating as well.. infact, wouldn't EVERY.SINGLE.GAME they review get a high score? Even if it's Ratshit's Amazing Dance-a-thon feat. MC Hammer

Ya know, maybe the reviewer actually thought it was only worth 78%, and that another actually thought WOW was 98%

Wow, maybe marketing/selling out had NOTHING to do with it at all.

Sounds like the age-old mario vs sonic is starting to be replaced with EQ/WOW :P

Nicks Rant
Very very strange...

when will people grow a brain and realize that there are better ways to get attention if you need it that badly.

The most knowledge I have on either game is that the grpahics look awesome. I am a big blizzard fan, and heard that everquest is dangerously addicting.

Admit One Patient.

Patient Name: Stephers
Reason: Substance abuse
---Substance: EverCrack Ever Quest II

If people really wanna bitch so much why don they go to school and learn just how hard it is to make a video game. Programers alone loose their hair, much less the graphics, marketing, sound... I could go on. Unless your in the field or have legitimate reasons, people should just stop their bitching. Really you got to wonder where dumbasses like him come from. Send them back to mars.

ok and thats my rant on the matter.
