Full Disclosure

Hi everyone! You saw our welcome message right? Good.

I need to disclose some stuff before you read/see/hear any more anything from me. (I meant to put this up earlier, but it honestly got lost in the madness that was our soft launch.)

Over the past year, after leaving EGM/1UP/Ziff-Davis and before starting Bitmob, I did some paid-consulting work for the following game publishers: SouthPeak, Capcom, EA Games, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, and Sierra…in the form of mock reviews (not-for-publication evaluations that help them with their marketing and development efforts — basically seeing what a critic would think before review copies get sent out to the wider press).

I assure you that these past, temporary working relationships with these companies will not affect my editorial independence in any way (but of course, that's really up to you to decide), and while I'm at Bitmob, I won't be doing any further work like this. I promise I'll be upfront about everything regarding this.

Here are the games I mock reviewed:

The Bourne Conspiracy
Godfather 2
NinjaTown
X-Blades
Flock
Wanted: Weapons of Fate

Let me know if you have any questions about this, and I'll do my best to answer them.
