Derek Smart could be sending Jenna Jameson in a giant gift box to game reviewers and he still couldn't get a good review. saywhat

he'd probably develop a game using the concept that requires a 500 page manual and 5 degrees at MIT to 'get it'.

Hookers and blow - thats why I started GT baby! 

What a load of shit.  Seriously, does he expect anyone to believe that crock?  Know what I've been offered to 'bump' a review?  Absolutely nothing.  Zero.  Zilch.

Marshie kicks butt.  I actually considered changing my avatar to Nibbles, but went with the Shakezula in hell instead.


BTW, Ron, didn't Starforce offer you millions if you would kneel before the DRM overlords?
