I’m re-tooling this post a bit. Some people and outlets decried the coverage of the fake starters yesterday for not being reasonably believable or not 100% confirmed. I would argue though that reading about interesting stuff can be fun, especially when you’re covering a game intended for a primarily adolescent audience. Everyone needs a break from the stresses of life, why fuss over gaming news. Let’s just have fun and enjoy it.
As long as rumors or suspect information is clearly marked as such I think we can enjoy it without shame. No worries, we won’t stop covering them.
