To be fair, RPS is a PC-specific site. Even if he were interested in stuff on other platforms he couldn't talk about it there.
RPS in general is about the only big game-focused site I read, so I'm a bit surprised to see all the hate. I haven't been keeping up with any of it for a while though.
I'm biased here because I'm a fan of Richard Cobbett's writing, particularly on adventure and older games. But I'm with you on this one, it's not his best work for sure. Then again, I think writing about upcoming games is almost universally terrible.
