Default The Kane and Lynch Fuss

Well, im sure that most of you have probably heard something about the recent firing of a GameSpot employee after a bad review of a featured game, and if you havent, heres a quick recap:

Edios pay GameSpot a fair amount of money in order to advertise their new game, Kane and Lynch; As a result the site is filled with banners and popups all pro-game.

A site reviewer has a good play with the game, and a good majority of his views are very negative towards the game, saying that its generally bland and theres nothing that really sets it apart from many other shooters out there. A video of this review can be found here. (It is no longer hosted on the GameSpot website).

The video is taken down, and the reviewer fired, with mass critisizm flooding the forums once news of this breaks out. Insults are thrown around, and in sight of this bad publicity Edios opts to withdraw from their partnership with GameSpot in order to avoid any further affliction.

Discuss =]

(also, if i have gotten any of the information incorrect please notify my and i shall make the proper audjustments).

P.S. Sorry for my bad grammer and small vocabulary
