Not only do they shove their social virtue down everyoneís throat, but Iíve never liked their reviews. Most of their writers think they are far more clever than they actually are and they canít  just write a succinct and clear piece. I often find myself wondering what exactly it is that the writer is trying to say and I canít count the times I read a review and couldnít figure out for the life of me what the author thought of the game.

This. It's empty cheekiness most of the time.

Interesting.  I'll keep my eye out for that next time I'm over there.

I liked the Wot I Think articles, I think...it's been a while.

The Flare Path was the only column I've read on RPS. I don't find their reviews helpful. They are usually bloated and not very informative. They lack details about game mechanics, comparisons to similar games, gameplay details, etc. I find posts here more informative than their reviews. I'm also not interested in their political views. Game journalists should focus on games. I don't need politics in my entertainment. There is enough politics everywhere else.

I will make sure to visit Tally Ho every Friday in a web of anonymity. Don't tell anyone :)
