I would be very interested in Giant Bomb reviewing this game. It would be a good thing for them to highlight a game that may go under peoples radars.
This game is getting great reviews. I don't see why Giant Bomb wouldn't review it themselves: it's a slow-ass week.
Yeah I kinda get annoyed when they are all "no games are out, slow news, etc." and they leave a game review option in the dust. Maybe @MattBodega: will do it. But GB is all about getting that review out in the right window, I think if they were going to do one it would be up by now.
I'm pretty sure there's a 100% chance they're gonna review this. Not only have they already done pre-release coverage, but I've seen a bunch of ads around for this game, meaning enough people will be interested in it to warrant a review.
What ads? Heh...
yeah, i mean it's not like they have anything else to review.
Yeah, thats what I am kind of hoping for, that they are just looking to put a review up. But I am generally really interested, but it has gotten mixed reviews... and its not $20 like Deadly Premonition was either... :\
I finally got my copy of the game just earlier today, praise be to region-free sony devices! While I've unfortunately also got to work, I had pre-noon off and managed to squeeze an hour in during an extended lunch-break. (I'm sorry, boss, it was a matter of life and death. Things were just flooding down, a literal hell.)
I'm really enjoying the game, thus far; the aesthetics can, at times, almost be a sensory overload, but rather than be frustrating, it does wonders for your mood. The absolutely masterly use of music and subdued background noises add to the experience in such a way that what seems like a thousand incompatible elements suddenly make sense. The entire game to me, reminds me most of a beautiful water-colour painting. Plus, gameplay's a shitload of fun.
Seems to me like the kind of game that would have Alex and Brad drooling.
Ryan said on twitter that they didn't get an advance copy and might pick it up this week.
I know ignition is small but after promoting Deadly Premonition and doing a QL EX I think this is a bit off. Go tell @shanewatch on twitter to stop being a dick :D
They didn't mention it on I love mondays.. so I'm doubtful, but I hope so!
Just spoke to Jeff on Twitter about this. I'll link to his own words but the skinny is: yes but they didn't send a review copy.
Here's the exact quote:
@TXCasper They didn't send one out, we'll probably pick up El Shaddai at some point.
El Shaddai just came out in Europe. I got it a few days ago. It's a really amazing and unique experience. Giant Bomb should have a review by now and talk about it a little bit. It's been getting 9s across the board generally. It's sad - I went to the game shop and there were like 3 copies on the shelves, and I had to really dig around for it. Just like Shadow of the Damned, original games are bombing. It's worse than its ever been before.
