From Ars Technica:

Duke Nukem Forever was an industry joke for a very long time, and even now it's a game that plays like it popped out of a decade-old time capsule. That's not the best thing to say about a game for modern system that will be sold for $60. If you'd like a few extra chunks of plastic with your game, you'll be paying even more.

From ARS Technica

When you work for a gaming outlet with a large audience, Activision can make your life very good. The publisher has made a habit out of offering posh "review events" for the press instead of simply sending out early code. When the reviews arrive, few discuss the free vacation they were given.

This is why we were so impressed to see a full description of the event held for Call of Duty: Black Ops reviewers in GamePro. The short story: Activision spent a lot of money to make sure reviewers were impressed before they even played the game.

From Engaget:

We knew there was more viral video goodness to be had with Kinect than lots and lots and lots of little green dots. And here you have it: people the world o'er punching each other, falling into things, and just generally making making asses of themselves by paying more attention to the TV than whatever objects might exist in the physical world that surrounds them.
