    Meet Ben Lawrence, 2K Games UK PR Manager:

    "People made homeless by Hurricane Sandy send their condolences to all those affected by this latest, terrible, heart-rending games scandal."


    https://twitter.com/TheMoop/status/261130838941519872

    "Hungry for a bag of Doritos and a cool glass of refreshing Mountain Dew. In other news - The British Legion Poppy Appeal was launched today."


    https://twitter.com/TheMoop/status/261131595111612416

    "Such a small pond of squabbling guppies. Reality check people - NO ONE in the wider world gives a flying **** about games 'scandals'. xxx"


    And my personal favourite...

    What do you expect? He's in PR! He's probably shocked and reeling from having his little cozy boat rocked by Rab.

    My heart goes out to all the PR folks shaken and shocked by Gamers expecting some semblance of standards in the media industry. The threat of professionalism approaching must be really devastating for them. Especially as it comes from us, the over-entitled consumers of their products.

    What will they do with all their junkets and swag now? We didn't think of that did we? PR offices drowning in a sea of tat. Is that what we, the consumer, wanted? Because that's the reality of this storm in a teacup.

    However will i sleep tonight? What have i been a part of?

    :(

    This seems to be lacking context, somewhat...

    PR hack whining at our feeling of over-entitlement as gamers expecting journalists to have standards and not be bought off with trinkets.

    Apparently it hasn't made a difference, we're just squabbling guppies in a storm-in-a-teacup.

    So why the vitriol?

    I'm not expecting you or anyone else to be outraged. I've had bad experiences with these 'people'...

    You know, the best thing you could have done is not link to him at all. Any publicity at all is good publicity for PR types. He's probably already updated his CV to claim he's supporting the PR industry.

    Actually, you're probably him.

    It has to be ironic, I mean, no one can be that much of a prick.

    OP has 2 posts, and his Twitter account just doubled in hits.

    Still stalking this place, old-school style (UID: 1053)

    No, I am not that scumbag. Although, I can understand why some would think I would be... it'd fall in line with his ego/persona.

    He's pretty evil, but the world is full of evil men, you need blinkers or you go nuts.
