Kotaku just ‘reblogged’ one of their own posts, the thing about the Nintendo Treehouse from last year.

It’s a good article, but why. Have you really done nothing worth reading since then?

Anonymous asked: (not same anonanon) So, if I may ask, what exactly do you find dubious about "travel and lodging" being paid for as well? I agree with you, I'm just hoping you can clarify your position for others.

You’re still getting a nice trip paid for by someone else, even if it’s a work trip. A lot of these press events are in pretty nice locales, as well.

I think in most cases coverage of the event would let a publication recoup any costs of sending someone to one, so it being covered by the company holding the event seems weird.

Anonymous asked: Do you think 'gifts' are any different from travel and lodging being paid by these companies? It's the same thing. Why be mad at one and not the other?

Uh, I think having your travel and lodging being paid for is pretty questionable too, actually. The sad part is that so many journalists don’t consider that odd at all, when it’s just as dubious as being given huge gifts.

Anonymous asked: Candy Crush's Dev says F2P is the future. Is it?

I’m not gonna put a whole lot of stock in anything I expect to run face first into heavy regulation within the next 5 years.
