Aww man, when I saw the thread title I figured this was a parody post: "Look at Saturday's Bargain Bucket! All it is is links to retailers selling games! Advert!"

Seriously, even if there was a connection between the two, why assume corruption? If I was marketing Red Orchestra and saw a site had posted a bunch of preview articles about it then I'd probably want to advertise on that site (because clearly the readers are interested or they wouldn't be posting about it so much).
