While everyone was learning about the new 3DS and the re-release of Majora's Mask, Nintendo quietly released their newest game, Box Boy, in Japan which is half-Tetris, half platformer. So let's play it. (Full disclosure: It's really cute, you guys.)

Tbh in general I think it's ridiculous to judge somebodys gaming skills, but as a routined journalist on Kotaku you become a person of certain public interest (and exposion) and this fact - if not welmcomes it - at least justifies this kind of judging.

In my opinion it's really emberassing for this side to show you playing this game on such a low skill level. Not knowing the game at all but after just 10 secnods of gameplay without any further introduction knowing the solutions minutes before you puts your credibility to shame.

People who give me their (appreciated) opinions on games should bring a certain amount of skill with them. You might be not good at a certain genre but then please restrain from exposing yourself like this.

It might first seem like a direct critisism towards you, but it's rather one towards the over-all professionalism of the members of your craft. You are just one example.
