For those of us that spend our working life tapping away on our keyboards on sites such as Pocket Gamer and leagues of others, the last couple of weeks have been rather difficult.

Without getting into the specifics, the question of industry ethics – from how games journalists interact with developers, publishers and PR, and the coverage of the games from all such parties – has been high on the agenda, and has resulted in writers and editors alike taking a long hard look at their practices.

It's an issue that a lot of readers may have an opinion on, too.

For those who want to sample PocketGamer.biz's view on all the issues that have arisen of late, check out our take on why the whole affair risks giving games journalism a severe punch in the gut.

Feel free to use said article's comments section to give your own thoughts, either using your Facebook or Twitter account.

If the ins and outs of mobile development is your prime concern, however, then the last week on PocketGamer.biz played host to plenty of that, too:
