I'm going to try and keep this post to a minimum and just address your points.
As for the "major butt kissing," that is honestly flattering. We had no intention to do anything more then what we usually do. If you haven't been following our network, we frequently release p/reviews, interviews, and columns regarding the games we cover. The fact that you think we kicked it up a notch is a major compliment to our entire staff.
As for "own site isn't as worked up over it," of course silly. Do you host Birthday parties for yourself? Of course not; there's no fun in that. If you missed Kenn's recent <a href="http://www.webdog.org/plans/173/">.plan update</a>, you'll see that he was the one who brought it up.
Finally, "Do we need to be so blatent in showing that we want Raven to give us an inside track on the game???" How would "major butt kissing" towards Raven help us in anyway? Anyone who knows LucasArts understands that a developer can't give out information about their games until it is approved by LucasArts directly (Hey Tom!) If we wanted any sort of inside track, we would be bowing before LucasArts.
