I’m not getting worked up about it, lol. It’s more of a journalistic integrity thing, I guess. He mentions T6, SF4, MK and Blazblue in the article and picks Blazblue as the one he thinks has the easiest combos. Really? Easier than T6 juggles? Hell, Tekken is my main thing and even I’ll admit that combos are stupid easy compared to some other games. That’s just a case of not doing your homework. OK (kind of) if you’re a blogger with a free web page, but if you’re being paid to write about something you had better do your research before you put pen to paper. That isn’t what happened in this case.
To put it in perspective, I would write a way better article about this guys favorite kind of game than that, because I would actually spend a little time learning the game before I wrote an article making blanket statements about the whole genre that just weren’t true. I realize that these are games, and not coverage on Iraq, but where, as a publisher, do you draw the line?
Yeah, that wasn’t my intention. I was just trying to point out this guys flaws as a journalist. I understand FG’s can be tough to get into, but it was amazing to me how off-base this guys was with some of the things he says in relation to some of these games’ mechanics.
