IGN Voice Chat Summary
In this episode it seems like IGN takes a few hits at the people of neogaf. You can see it through out the summary and this statement that Bozan says at the beginning of the summary.
“We can do without the Neogaf Summary Guys”
Honestly IGN everyone respects you but no one wants to listen to you guys talk for about 40 minutes. All what people really want to know is the info you guys give. IGN has such a foot in to door with the industry, they have a good idea of what going on, and people respect that. Don’t go down on people just because they don’t want to listen do you, just be thankful for what you do have. One reason I don’t wright a rant about every single post I make is that people don’t always want to hear or read a rant, they just want the info. Sorry that’s my rant for the day.
