I stumbled across this review of Mario Galaxy last night on Variety. It's pretty blatantly obvious that they're bashing the game because of Sony sponsorship. I don't mean in a subtle way, I mean blantant advertising while bashing Galaxy. An example of the review:
"Fans may claim that the graphics are good “for the Wii,” but that argument quickly grows tired. There’s clever art design on many of the planets Mario visits, but given the vastly superior quality of the graphics in a game like “Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction,” currently available for the PS3, “Galaxy” looks old fashioned and lifeless."
Needless to say it's a pretty funny review, so I sent it to Joystiq and Kotaku so they could enjoy the laughs, too.
So I go back to Joystiq this morning and the article is up!
They linked to this version of the article:
And I sent them this version of the article (notice "Sponsored by Sony" near the top)
Maybe joystiq loves flamebait instead of actual comedy news?
