I do. I think everyone does, except for Redeemed. He's special, but we still love him.

The Reviewer Jeff Gerstmann on Gamespot was fired for giving Kane and Lynch a bad review. At the time Eidos had been advertising Kane and Lynch pretty heavily on the Gamespot site.

Yeah, I'm aware of that. So? To be honest, I was unaware that Eidos was behind Kane and Lynch. Kinda' makes sense now.

We know so few facts on the Gamespot thing I don't think it's "boycott Eidos" worthy.

We are gamers. PC gamers mostly. It's our nature to over react.

Well, I really have no interest in Kane and Lynch, so don't be surprised that I didn't know Eidos was behind it.

Anyhow...

As of right now, it's all speculation. Until someone can figure out exactly why he was fired, I'm going to keep my position.

It pains me not to buy a tomb raider game though. They're just so...




Oh yea... love ya Redeemed.
