Apparently, it wasn't just a "complaint", but a threat of legal action.
Also, don't blame Eurogamer for this. The threat of legal action brings unbelievable pressure. I am clear on who the bad guys are in this.
John Walker (from RPS) is less ambiguous about who made what threats:
Wainwright threatened Eurogamer for quoting her, and making an observation. Utterly astonishing. Utterly pathetic. Wretched.
So now we have game journalists threatening to sue other outlets for quoting them. What the fucking fuck?
This is an absolute fucking disgrace.
