Revolution 60 has received remarkably high praise for what is, by all accounts, a staggeringly mediocre title with a lot of promise and an equally large number of problems. Analysis has gradually yielded the remarkable discovery that the overpowering majority of the game's best reviews come from outlets where Brianna Wu has personal friends of hers. In fact, there is shockingly few reviews of Revolution 60 that are heavily praise-worthy online that aren't from associates of Brianna Wu's. The game enjoys a shockingly low 2.4 aggregate user score on Metacritic, whilst at the same time boasting a 74 critic aggregate score. Whilst some of the low user scores are doubtlessly individuals with an axe to grind, the bulk of them are holding the game to account for being a slipshod mess.

In an effort to shine light on how Revolution 60 could have such a low user score whilst also boasting such a high critic score, this article will detail what relationship to Brianna Wu the critics giving the game its highest scores have to the head of Giant Spacekat Studios.

iMore

iMore gave Revolution 60 its Action Game of the Year award. This award has been repeatedly trumpeted as one of the game's seminal accomplishments and is widely considered one of its biggest achievements, listed on the game's Wikipedia page and on Giant Spacekat Studios' own site. What will not be discussed is the circumstances by which Revolution 60 gained this award over other, more qualified titles.

iMore's awards are listed as "editor's choice awards," and it is here that a simple analysis of iMore's editors speaks volumes.

Serenity Caldwell (Managing Editor for IOS content iMore), Georgia Dow (Senior Editor for iMore), Peter Cohen (Managing Editor for Mac content on iMore), and Rene Ritchie (Editor-in-Chief for iMore) are all Brianna Wu's personal friends. Dow herself is one of four co-hosts on the Isometric show on 5by5 - a show that features Brianna Wu as a co-host. All four of these individuals have extensive, long-term involvement with Brianna Wu herself and in-depth friendships as indicated by countless tweets between Brianna Wu and them.[1]

Ironically, this is exactly the sort of corruption #GamerGate started in order to oppose.
