    Hey guess don't diss IGN as a whole

    Just diss IGN AU and that Cam Shea character. I just wanted to recall everyone's attention the very very positive preview that one Ryan Clements of the US IGN team gave to Just Cause to all the way back in novemeber, so enjoy and don't hate IGN. (they're my favorite gaming website)

    "I can now say with confidence that Just Cause 2 not only looks fun, but it is fun. In fact, "fun" doesn't do justice to the immense thrill of free falling off a skyscraper, parachuting over a raging waterfall and hijacking a moving convoy -- all without a single loading screen to interrupt the action. If Just Cause 2 wasn't on your radar, put it on there right quick."

    here's the full article

    oh yea, I hear ya man. Hopefully the let people that are interested in that game in that genre of games review them. I think they do a pretty good job for the most part. I really hope Clements reviews JC2. I remember hearing on a coulple of their podcast that they try to sit around and discuss who gets to review what based on who likes/is interested in what.

    dude yea. I never understood fully what happened. I all i remember is that a mediocre game with fairly good ideas got a deservedly mediocre score from gamespot and this guy got fired or something like that.

    That about right?

    yeah that's the long and short of it

    I can't blame Eidos they had allot of motgages and rent payments riding on that game, they did fudge a little in their quoting of reviewers.

    But that's water under the bridge Just Cause 1 was a great game Just Cause 2 looks to be epic by all regards and it will stand on its own 2 legs.

    And that's enough for me (that supposed to be a content look of happiness, not rollin eyes like the name suggest)

    I'm not a big fan of IGN, as you can tell by my signature

    Of course, I don't mind them so much, but I just take everything they say with a grain of salt, so to speak.

    .. Indeed, Let's just hope that those 2 legs are durable enough, eh?

    Everything should be a sandbox
