I have been checking gaming forums, and they are tearing this show to shreds, which I expected. However, I didn’t think it was that bad. I mean it’s for the masses. If your on this site you more then likely know the dealings of our industry, so you might not agree with a lot of the winners. As far as a show, not bad, not too bad at all.
Oh and I am prepared for any Motley Crue slams I receive, dammit, sometimes my love for hair bands is my downfall.
