NCsoft turns the tables by giving awards to MMO journalists

First of all, we'd like to say that if we don't get the "Most Eminently Cheery Journalist" award, we may have to convert to the dark side and start throttling Jawas or something. What's this all about? In order to raise money for GamesAid, a UK-based charity, NCsoft has decided to host the fir...
