You got to stop firing


Remember last November when GameSpot reviewer and Editorial Director, Jeff Gerstmann, was fired for writing a negative review about the crap game Kane & Lynch: Dead Men? Well, the bod who may have been responsible for the firing, one Josh Larson, VP of Games at parent company, CNET, has also been told to go forth and multiply.

However since Gerstmann's left, GameSpot's editorial staff have fled the company like rats leaving a sinking ship. Gone are Alex Navarro, Frank Provo, Ryan Davis, Brad Shoemaker and Jason Ocampo.
