+ - Variety's Scathing SMG Review Sponsored by...Sony? 1

Submitted by Cymoro
Cymoro (684957) writes "Talk about fair and balanced journalism. On Monday, Variety published a review of Super Mario Galaxy, which had been released the same day. However, their first impressions of the game were less than stellar. Astute readers did happen to notice a "Sponsored by Sony" located at the top of the page, and a strong comparison to Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction. Is it possible that Sony is paying off reviewers now to hold off Nintendo's sales?"

+ - More Allegations of Developer Misconduct in EVE

Submitted by umilmi81
umilmi81 (666) writes "The EVE Online player based alliance GoonSwarm has published an open letter, including screen shots, accusing CCP employees of joining a member corporation, giving himself director level permissions, and then leaving the corporation.

In-game petitions sent to CCP about the incident were subsequently deleted. A forum moderator acknowledged the accusations, and has directed the matter to internal affairs.

CCP created an internal affairs department after admitting developer misconduct on previous occasions."

Our policy is, when in doubt, do the right thing. -- Roy L. Ash, ex-president, Litton Industries
