REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

GR Mailbag: Union of Soviet Socialist Tamriels

Subject: Skyrim review

As you probably know by the now, the PS3 version of Skyrim is under severe scrutiny by the public. Thousands of reports of frame rate issues, freezing, crashes, game breaking bugs, etc have begun to be reported by the PS3 consumer base. As an avid supporter of Play Station, I am question why you have posted positive reviews for the PS3 version of this game, when the company has shipped a severly unfinished product? Please take the time to either remove your review, or actually play the game for 75+ hours so that you may experience these issues first hand. Your review as it stands now, is inaccurate, and misleading.
Thank you for your support in this matter.

Mr. Stellin,

I am an American. I will not let you push me around. The USSR is dead and shall remain so as long as my country stands. You'd better not be Putin me on.

Subject: PS3 Skyrim Review - Metacritic

Dear Daniel,

I'm writing you to request that your review of the PS3 version of Skyrim be removed or ammended to reflect the game-crippling lag that most gamers are experiencing. The Playstation Lifestyle Metacritic Score is currently 100 which can be perceived as deceitful at its current state.

As a side note, Skyrim fans that play on a PS3 (such as myself) are hoping that things like this bring more and more attention to the issue and motivate Bethesda to correct it.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Mike

Hi Mike Bona,

I can't believe I wasted the whole making-fun-of-the-sender's-name gag on the previous e-mail. Your last name lends itself far too easily to comedy.

To answer your request: No, I will not. You and everyone else on Metacritic are stupid and you should stop reading that site and start reading other better sites like this one because it's got reviews and most of the readers aren't stupid like you and your friend Joseph Stalin who will not get what he wants because 'merica.
