:Dso people have to be 'strong' during this, the worst drought in gaming history? why would anyone do that instead of just gong where the games are? lmdfao

The review was provisional and sometimes they change. 

Wtf since when do they do this? Is this them attempting to get a review up quickly as possible and then retract if necessary?

Multiplayer wasn’t launched when reviews went live

Giantbomb's review still to go up (they haven't been too hot on it) and then the notoriously tough review of Edge. This could still end up at 84

Oh shit... it can go back down to an 83 :roff:

They're not reviewing it, if they ever do a quick look they're not reviewing the game.

Right, because they don't do reviews anymore. They haven't reviewed a game since Anthem.

Where did you hear that? It takes two seconds to see it's wrong, but I'm just curious.

Have they completely stopped doing reviews? I know they hardly do any but they usually do the major first party titles. They did spiderman, GoW, crackdown 3. Surely this is bigger than crackdown 3 lol

I don't think so. They were talking about not getting a review copy of Borderlands 3 on their podcast.

 

I meant like they do fuck all for reviews rather than they officially stopped or anything. Easy to bet against a review when they've done two in the last ten months.

For every game they've ever done a quick look (that I've seen) there's never been a review for it.

lol that's easily untrue.

 

You already implying that you haven't seen the vast majority of quicklooks, but you figure you had enough knowledge to come to the conclusion that they've NEVER reviewed a game that they've done a quicklook for?

 

They review major games like the biggest shooters (that fall within Gerstmann's predictable taste), the biggest first-party exclusives. You don't think Giantbomb has done quick looks of those games?

I'm not seeing a lot of examples, did they review Gears 5? Nope, they did a quick look for it, did they review Control? Nope they did a quick look for it. I've seen this in like 20+ other instances checking their site to see where a game review was just to find a quick look in its place and a review never taking place. 

 

That seems to be exactly what they do, they still want to cover something but don't bother to put a review together so they do a quick look.

They reviewed Anthem.

 

here's the quicklook

 

 

They reviewed Crackdown 3

 

Here's the quick look

 

They reviewed Hitman 2

 

Here's the quick look

 

 

 

Tetris Effect

 

 

RDR2

 

 

 

You literally have absolutely NO BASIS to reach the conclusion you just reached. Its not remotely close to true.


You honestly think Giantbomb didn't do quick looks of major games like RDR2?

Well then the reality is they just have a fucked format with no consistency because in most cases of a Quick Look no actual review is produced.

The reality is that you made up completely bullshit logic.

 

EVERY REVIEW from the past year has had a quick look.

 

You have no absolutely no pattern here to base your conclusion................you just made it up, wholesale.

 

You're hoping there's no review, because you know damn well Gerstmann is going to give 3/5, he's basically said as much in this weeks podcast.
