To me it seems strange as I am still very interested in KS projects, but maybe these projects really are not interesting to most of the gaming site audience? Or has there been specific incidents that turned the press against KS projects? I really wonder.
The answer is simple: next gen concoles are out in the next week or so - so do you think average Joe would like to read about the new PS4 gamepad and COD, or Guido's old-school, party based, turn-based rpg? The press caters mostly for average Joe.

Oh forgot that average Joe is also dying to spend countless hours on the new Blizzard MMO or whatever.

All of this is the press's main concern at the moment, which is an unfortunate timing for Guido.
