2K PR Rep Puts Foot Firmly in Mouth

Duke Nukem Forever has gotten some bad scores from critics. Okay they've gotten some really bad scores from critics. And while that hasn't seemed to stop the long awaited game from claiming the top sales spot on the charts, it has brought one unnamed PR rep from 2K to the brink of madness when he said on his Twitter feed:
"Too many went too far with their reviews." "We are reviewing who gets games next time and who doesn't based on today's venom."
The comment is now gone off of Twitter so the quote isn't exact- and while we definitely see the point as it does seem that a lot of the more 'venomous' reviews seem to forget what actually goes into the Duke games as far as outlandish content- this is going way too far.

Reviews must by definition be honest. If the reviewer feels a particular way about a product, movie, or game- they've got to come out with it in the written piece. That's the bottom line.
