Monday Morning Scripted – Don’t Fire Me

Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday Morning Scripted!  I still haven’t been paid for my 8.0 review of Kane & Lynch so I’m not sure how to take that.  If you’re unaware of why I just said that, it’s because of all the speculation going on surroung a GameSpot editor being fired for his review (if you can call it that) of Eidos’ Kane & Lynch: Dead Men.  This hasn’t been confirmed but I don’t need to explain the ramifications if it holds true that these so-called big media sites like GameSpot are “on the take” with their reviews.

That’s why you only need to trust my reviews because I’m still pretty broke writing them.  If you can’t trust a broke person, then who can you trust? (smile)  Activision and Vivendi Universal merged to form Activision Blizzard.  I definitely got a WTF moment with that name.  This makes a formidable alliance though against the all powerful EA.

There’s a new addition to U360 that I revealed yesterday called U360 Medals.  It’s another unique feature to the site that so far everyone has enjoyed.  There will be more medals introduced so stay tuned!

Tonight is the season finale of Heroes and I wanted to say that the writers on strike are TEH SUCK!  I know everyone should be paid their worth but couldn’t they have waited until the Summer when Heroes was done!  See you guys and girls tomorrow for the Fall Dashboard Update live show!

They call me "The Velvet Voice". I like sunshine, games and large amounts of money. I'm a Microsoft Xbox MVP and an Author.

Take a look at my About Me bio for more on me.


  1. Honestly, I think the writing on some shows have been slacking lately. However, I think what some people are forgetting, no matter if writers deserve more or not, their strike is impacting others in the business. What about other people that work on these shows that are currently out of a job and yet won’t get a pay raise once the writers thing is settled?

  2. Your reviews are always honest and fairly bang on with what I like to play (perhaps we’re of one mind, who knows). People trust your reviews the most, mainly i’m going out on a limb here, but because we know you. You’re not some faceless gamer in the dark who might have never picked up a controller and are just reviewing off trailers and box art. We know you play the games and that your a great gamer. Anyway….hope the Heros ep was a goodie.

  3. @ Green & Deac i hear that and I am in full agreement but again people are not numbers like our society would like to think. It would be nice for those who excell to receive such acknowledgement (finacially i suppose). It is a selfish move the way they are going about it but i understand their point. And also more money does not make for better entertainment- that’s why i love indy movies so much :) anyway the whole thing stinks – so lets game!

  4. I agree w/ Baroness. But I never ready reviews from sites such as gamespot, etc.. I wait for reviews from people I know. Or I just go out and play the game for myself because everyones tastes in games are different. I may like a game someone else finds horrible and vice versa.
