Topware blacklisting publications for mediocre Two Worlds 2 scores
While it's not as common as many critics of this industry believe, score pressuring from publishers does occurr once in a while. The 2007 case of Jeff Gerstmann vs. Kane and Lynch is infamous, but there's a more recent one which will henceforth be known as Topware vs. everyone in the entire industry. When Two Worlds 2 started getting less-than-favorable reviews, the company reportedly started threatening to blacklist any publication that granted the game a score below 7. Based on my own personal dealings with the company, I belief the allegations wholeheartedly. Way to discredit our entire industry, you douches.
