Giant Bomb review forthcoming?

#1 Posted by DanHammett (157 posts) -

So we all know the close ties that the Bomb squad has with the guys over at Iron Galaxy, which raises a question. Will the site review the game, or will it be like Bastion where they talk about their feelings on the game but don't review it do to possible unintentional bias?

@danhammett: Does it even need a review? I think you can tell if you'd like this game just by watching a couple of matches.

No.

They do so few reviews, so hard to know. Do you really need a review of this though?

No, they would want someone to give a positive review.

GB doesn't review games done by friends of the site, pretty standard. They didn't review Bastion for that reason.

As people said, a rule in review ethic.

There's a ton of coverage of DiveKick on this site already which should give a pretty clear indication of what they think about it. What do you need a review for?

It would be a conflict of interest, since Jeff is clearly both Markman and Mr. N.

/sarcasm, because everyone in the comments of the Divekick Quick Look didn't know shit about anything.
