Affirmative action is not always justified.

This is probably a high-point in gringe-worthy game-reporting. The girl has this terrible intonation that makes me want to slap her around the block a few times. What is with that slurring the end of every sentence, where's she's sounding like everything that she says is a question? It's of such an overdone level that I stopped listening to what she was saying and was just hearing a weird kind of brown noise that's about to become self-aware.

Maybe Gamespot played some kind of cynical meta-joke, like having a terribly bad received game commentated by totally incompetent people. But that would mean that Gamespot actually employs people that know what they're doing. And that's a scary thought...

That's that whole Kim Kardashian-speak thing, where they draw out the last sentence in a kind-of guttural end-of-breath thing that they think is sexy. It is worse than the "valley girl" thing that has been prevalent for 25+ years. I don't know if it's a naturally learned behavior or if it is cultivated by these girls...


More of the "dumbing down of America".

She whines about the last part of the mission like she's never palyed any of the games' Challenge modes. How can she say how much she loves the Batman games if she has never experienced a room full of multiple targets?

She's everything that makes a young man stand up poker straight. Too bad you're too old to remember what that was like. ;)

I'm surprised that you didn't type 'I r8 ur b8 8 m8, 8/8', it seems that your internet is rusty, Dixon! ;-)
