After a whole load of nasty weekend business, in which sources contacted BeefJack accusing TopWare Interactive of attempting to influence Two Worlds II review scores via blackmail, begging or bribery, the companys James Seaman has admitted that he has had a few arguments with the press over the games reception.
However, he categorically denied having attempted to overtly influence scores.
Instead, he told Destructoid, tantrums were as far as it got. In retrospect, getting into such a situation was stupid.
When we spoke to James Seaman on Friday night, he told us no publications had been asked to change their scores, and no publications had been blacklisted as a result of Two Worlds II reviews.
But we received a string of forwarded emails, allegedly sent by James to one publication, in which he stated that the website in question would no longer receive press assets from TopWare, unless they could find it in [their] heart to up the score to 7 out of 10.
A later email, which we were also forwarded, saw James apologising for his earlier outburst after hed denied to us that it had ever happened.
