Can you link me to that article where they called the Wii stupid and disrespected the readers.
I'm really curious.
It was a subtext in a lot of their reporting for a while but blew up on the Nintendo Voice Chat podcast a few years ago. It started with D. Hatfield calling the Wii "stupid", then the sentiment slowly bubbled up from the rest of the crew over the next month or so. They talked down to their users by saying things like, "Yah, this Ghostbusters game on Wii is okay, I guess, if you can't afford a 360." I'm paraphrasing, but things like that. Even the name of their podcast was a dig at the Wii for (at the time) not having any voice chat. Just rude, disrespectful and immature all around.
I'm not in the least surprised about the Daemon Hatfield bit. Dude is an all around c*nt.
I remember last year, there was this whole rukus because he lied to Dylan Cuthbert regarding one of his reviews.
Dylan, as we all know, was one of the key guys behind the original Star Fox, who now makes games for Sony with Pixeljunk.
