Jim Sterling is pretty much a douche, I'll admit. I like his Sonic reviews because of the time and thought he puts into them, but that's about it.
LOL. agreed. I will on occasion, read his reviews on titles, but I have never based a purchased on anything he wrote. I get the impression he, like other writers, attempts to get more looks-hits by trolling. I get the impression he is the type that will beat a dead horse until it is a rotten, fetid, sloppy mess.
