    I thought that the "killing in plain view" thing worked pretty well in the "Curtins Down" mission in Blood Money, where you could dress as the actor and shoot the target on stage. No mask there.

    On topic, I tend to read the highest and lowest reviews rather than the ones in the middle. The middle-of-the-road ones tend to be more generic, with lots of talk about technical features and graphics (which are a lower priority for me). I'd rather hear someone passionately discussing the creative merits of a game rather than trying to provide a Consumer Report of a product. Homogenity in scores, more often than not, strikes me as a lack of thoughtful critique.

    Yeah, Deano. I think that was the important thing a lot of fanboys came out of the woodwork to address and ultimately missed- the content of a review is the important thing to consumers, not the score. If you're not a brain dead weasel fart.

    And no, I don't trust games reviewers that can't earn it. I ignore everything not on RPS or not written by Erik Kain, because I don't care what those people have to say (and 95% of what's written on Kotaku is for pageviews, not because it's interesting).

    There are plenty of decent game reviewers out there. This notion that everything that RPS says is faultless is fanboy thinking.

    This thread reminded me of this GIF about EA and IGN a friend linked a few days go that made me laugh hard.
