Is the portrayal of the world of TR fanfiction by Gametap in their latest webcast (episode 7) fair?

Is the portrayal of the world of TR fanfiction by Gametap in their latest webcast (episode 7) balanced, fair and accurate? (http://tombraider.gametap.com/)

I get back to this topic, once I have gotten more information. Which might not be for a few days, as this comes at the worst of times, with Anniversary being released.

I have to be blunt and hope that I don't get edited. I think by choosing the author that they chose to highlight, the webcast will paint TR fan fiction in a mediocre light. I hate to think of newbies reading that author's stuff and thinking that it is representative of the best ...
