    This is our new format which we've moved to after a long period of seeking industry consultation and of course, your feedback.

    It should also have the side benefit of allowing us to replace most of the current (expensive) writers with (cheap) trained monkeys, meaning more content for you - Yay!

    We should have seen this coming, really. Harry was the beta-test, right?

    Hmm let me guess, those 'consultants' were trained monkeys looking for employment?

    Hey, at least now we get straight to the score, rather than having to read a conclusion ;)

    well if that was the joke it was as misplaced as the conclusion. Sheesh, for nerds I expected more. . . AT least TPB's was better. . .

    If you read their twitter post - Check out our new review format. It should mean more content, less flame wars and simply a better bit-tech - I think its clear its a 'joke' given the lack of content in the actual review (other than benchmarks).

    "In an effort to follow the lead of the current government, Bit-Tech has decided to do away with words as they really only end up taking away the focus from the pictures.
    In a move heralded by the Coalition's newly created official Provider of TRUTH, the establishment formerly known as The Sun, Bit-Tech today recognized the outmoded idea of words in this digital age. 'With the closure of libraries and the use of the books as fuel because we can't afford gas or oil, we felt words would only harken back to a darker age, one without that warm glow of a smoldering Shakespeare' said a Bit-Tech representative today. 'Pictures are good, words hurt head' blurted a Provider of TRUTH employee when asked for a comment."

    You know, sometimes words DO hurt your head. This is the internet after all... :eeek: (Though come to think of it, sometimes the pictures hurt more.)

    Would the the bandwidth saved by less text mean we get more pictures? If so I'm all for it :clap:
