Andrew EisenBy the way, Milo eats Cinnamon Toast Crunch. He's a fake GamerGate guy.06/02/2015 - 12:05pm
Andrew EisenYou know what I never dug? Cereals with marshmallows in them. Ewww!06/02/2015 - 12:04pm
WonderkarpAs somebody who has tweeted the #Gamergate hashtag in the past, I can confirm Fruit Loops is a delicious breakfast treat06/02/2015 - 12:02pm
Andrew EisenYou know, James, I bet I could drive a lot of traffic here by embedding "all GamerGaters eat Fruit Loops for breakfast" in the story URLs.06/02/2015 - 12:00pm
james_fudgeAn editor approved this article. They knew what they were doing :)06/02/2015 - 11:58am
Andrew EisenAnd hey, maybe it was intended to be a preview and the editor changed the title and article tagging after he/she edited Campbell's copy? Who knows? Who cares?!06/02/2015 - 11:58am
Andrew Eisen...of it. If they did, I'm sure they would have URL'd it "Rock Band 4 Report" as "report" is how it's tagged on the site anyway.06/02/2015 - 11:55am
Andrew EisenI didn't say it wasn't intended to be a preview. I said it wasn't labeled as such. I imagine the URL is the way it is because it's a lot shorter than the article title and no one could have reasonably predicted that anyone would make a big damn deal out06/02/2015 - 11:54am
Andrew EisenAnd to be fair, the article title is "Rock Band 4 is doing a lot of the fun things you want it to do" not " Rock Band 4 Preview."06/02/2015 - 11:52am
metroidprimegmr@Andrew: If it was not intended to be a preview as you say, then it begs the question of why "preview" was used in the URL. Surely they would have used another word in the url if it was intended to be something else?06/02/2015 - 11:52am
Andrew EisenI rather enjoyed the article too as it offers a perspective I've not seen an any other coverage I've read.06/02/2015 - 11:51am
Andrew EisenWhich is fine. Don't like the article? Find the information it delivers unsatisfying? Absolutely, totally, unarguably okay! Being upset over one line or the article's URL? Really, really silly.06/02/2015 - 11:50am
james_fudgedon't get me wrong, I love the article06/02/2015 - 11:49am
james_fudgeLOL06/02/2015 - 11:48am
james_fudgeHere's a 'Rock Band 4' preview - suprises b**ches, let me tell you why I hate RB!06/02/2015 - 11:48am
Matthew WilsonI dont like music games ether, but as a preview its not very good. I am not personly upset I just dont think its a good article.06/02/2015 - 11:48am
james_fudgeIt's basically clickbaiting06/02/2015 - 11:47am
james_fudgeNo, because it's doesn't say d*ck about RB4 ;)06/02/2015 - 11:47am
Andrew EisenI apologize if I'm coming off a bit gruff but this is seriously absurd and obnoxious.06/02/2015 - 11:46am
