I am a murderer. Well, maybe I’m more co-conspirator or an accessory, but the details don’t matter as much as the crime: killing games journalism.
Whether you’re reading this on Split Screen or Nightmare Mode, no one asked for your money and no one ever will.

There has been an explosion of games sites thanks to easy content management solutions like Wordpress, Joomla and even Tumblr, most of which are run by amateurs and hobbyists. I’ve touched on this before, and I’m aware that people in conservatories shouldn’t hurl boulders, but we need to talk about all this free stuff we are creating and how it impacts our colleagues.
The best of gaming opinion, editorial and iconoclasm on Split Screen: it's Reality Check.
