A Majesco developer has written a reviewer a sarcastic letter in response to a Cooking Mama 2 review.
Former GameSpot reviewer Alex Navarro posted to PassiveAgressiveNotes a letter written to him by an unnamed Majesco developer who was clearly perturbed by Navarro's review of Cooking Mama 2 for the Nintendo DS.
Navarro noted, "Game-makers bitching about reviews is nothing new, but rarely do they do it with as much sarcastic flair as this one does."
The Majesco employee's letter, sarcasm and all, says:
I would like to thank you for your review of Cooking Mama 2 for the DS.
It was fair and balanced and seemed to come from a special place in your heart.
I would like to thank you for your blunt honesty in telling people that the game is "not worth their while" and that they could "safely leave this one alone".
With the first Cooking Mama DS reaching 1 million units in Europe and near 1 million stateside, I began to worry that this might go to our heads.
Majesco's parking lot would be flooded with Bentley's, Maybach's and rare hybrid cars that run on pure ego. This is no longer my fear.
So I tip my cap to you good sir for keeping us grounded. God knows we are indeed all financially well off and not a bunch of hard working people just trying to pay our bills.
Keep up the good work and stay golden.
