    Yeah very nice. Real good developer, but then many coders are immature and really can't see the bigger picture.

    Then again...maybe it is a kid, the graphics looks like a kids scrawlings.

    What?
    The outburst is aimed at Joystiq, not Gamespot. Why do you think he mentioned Kotaku?

    Take a read of his blog maybe, people are getting their wires crossed because two things happened regarding Calling All Cars.

    - Gamespot marked the game down due to lack of content. He posts a response saying he thinks it's unfair considering it's a $10 multiplayer XBLA game. He has a point. He doesn't hate on Gamespot at all, he even says;

    Gamespot was not saying it’s a **** game. They seemed to like aspects of it. So I’m not bashing them or the score so much as just being confused a bit.
    - IGN reviewed the game and mentioned there were some bugs and being a good developer Jaffe decided to fix them before releasing it. Rather than being happy that he did so, rather than leaving it and releasing an update later on Joystiq posted some bitchy remarks. That's what his outburst was in reply to.

    Christ, he even added this to the end of the VERY SAME post

    ps. oh and JUST to make it CLEAR since it doesn't seem to be: I like GAMESPOT, have respect for them, always have. Hell I pay for the damn thing every year. I don't agree with the review but I've always dug the folks over there and continue to do so. Hope they will like our next game alot more!
    Bit more research next time, please.

    This is what he says on his site:

    I've interpreted this incorrectly I think?!?

    He doesn't agree with their review, so I guessed the whole rant was about them as he posted that comment attached to his rant, but I see now he was just trying to clarify that it wasn't gamespot. Plus I'd read in a few other places that it was Gamespot so put two and two together and made 5. My bad.
