Luke Smith, news editor over at 1up, recently posted a protesting blog entry
which openly defied a draconian edict laid down by Square/Enix. The company required news organs to refrain from discussing many aspects of the Valkyrie Profile
title, coming out in the U.S. later this year but already available in Japan. Gamers With Jobs has a good synopsis of the situation
. From that article: "Is he being a bit overly dramatic on this issue? Perhaps. But it is an interesting illumination of a larger issue, to do with the quality of communication between the industry and games journalists. Smith is certainly not the first to express dissatisfaction with the current state of affairs."
