Yo Yo Giantbomb!

I was wondering if we'll get to see (Guessing Brads or even Drew's) review of Halo 4 on November 1st at midnight?

I know some other gaming websites will.

Thanks

It'll be Jeff, they wouldn't let Brad near that

I don't think so, they don't really care as much about reviews and scores as other sites do.

#4 Posted by Branwulf (406 posts) -

Depends when they get a copy and when the embargo is. I think it'll probably be Brad who reviews it.

The Drewpinion is the one I require.

Forget reviews, livestream Alexis and Drew playing through it on Co-op with some post mortem talk afterward.

And a lot of pizza. A loooot of pizza.

Oh man, Drewpinion. I don't why, but that sounds . . wrong. Like, real wrong. It's making me feel weird.

It will probably be Jeff since he reviewed all of the others.

Giantbomb is slowly leaving the review-business. But they are the biggest player in the quick look-business, and I like it that way.

Who cares about the review? If you like Halo you'll buy it anyway.

#11 Posted by Syndrom (361 posts) -

reviews suck, just give me a quicklook.

And copies are allready out there, i know someone here in belgium who has his review copy allready.

I, too, hope to see a Drewview. He feels like he'd be best suited for it.

#14 Posted by supamon (1333 posts) -

Brad will probably be the one reviewing it. It doesn't matter to me since I'm getting it day one.

I will be happy with just a quick look too.

And the crew already got a review copy too, if you look at Jeff's achievements you can see he unlocked a few for Halo 4.

Yeah it's definitely Jeff taking a look at the game, I would expect a text review and quick look right when the embargo is lifted for the game so don't worry if you only want one or the other.

The Drewpinion isn't meant to make you feel nice. It's meant to remind you that the Drewbot 9000 is the superior being.

since when? It's probably the reason is off this week. Quick Look isn't a good replacement for a review, a 40 minute look at a game compared to someone that has spent over 20 hours with the game can't be compared. If GB got rid of reviews they would stop getting invited to anything and getting early copies. You get the most hits from reviews, people strolling though Metacritic.

Yeah, I think Jeff will review it.

#21 Posted by TheSouthernDandy (3866 posts) -

The guys can sometimes be pretty late on reviews but this game is big enough that I'd bet we'll see it hit as soon as the embargo lifts. A lengthy live Drewstream would be real good too.

Brad reviewed the Anniversary Edition.....I still think Jeff will review this one though.

I will pay for another full year of membership just for that livestream. We need to find a way to make this happen.

#24 Posted by Godlyawesomeguy (6398 posts) -

Jeff will review it, but I would really enjoy seeing a review from Drew.

#25 Posted by Vinny_Says (5707 posts) -

I would really like a midnight stream of Halo 4 with Drew at the helm. That Skyrim marathon was awesome and that old Gamespot Mario Galaxy stream was awesome. Live streams is where it's at and I wouldn't mind seeing more of these "here's us jumping into the first hour of said game, raw and unedited".

But yeah there will probably be a review on midnight.

#26 Posted by Mushy46 (13 posts) -

I would rather see a Quick Look as well. Does anyone know if there is an embargo set?

I...wait, what?

Have you seen evidence with, say, the GB guys that makes you not trust their reviews of big games? (i.e. you think they are on the take rather than it being a matter of taste)

Legitimately asking and not taking the piss. I tend to not take many reviews at face value myself, but that is due solely to knowing my own tastes don't necessarily correspond.

@big_jon: Fun fact, he gave halo 3 a 9.5 back in the gamespot days, so he isnt shy of praising halo :P

as for who is reviewing it, id say jeff, but apparently brad was spotted playing halo 4 on live, and jeff is likely out on a review event for Black ops 2 or need for speed, and other press sites did pretty much allude to getting the game. so take that as you will.

Halo 3 was rad at the time though. It's not the best Halo but it ironed out a lot of the issues that Halo 2 had in abundance, and it was one of the first games to really take advantage of XBL. Back when he gave it 9.5, there was nothing quite so fully-featured and well-designed as Halo 3.

...is an amazing game !

#41 Posted by Zajtalan (1163 posts) -

wow I'm starting to hate the fact that Brad might review it. Jeff has way more enthusiasm, especially in a video review.

Video review!? Is it 2009?

But seriously, don't care who reviews it, I just wanna hear what thinks.

#43 Posted by Daryl (1781 posts) -

Nobody gives two shits about reviews any more, simple as.

#44 Edited by GetEveryone (4455 posts) -

I like how Jeff makes comments about reviews becoming less relevant, and suddenly a tonne of voices in the comments section are like,

"Yeah, fuck reviews!"

I'd be interested in reading a review. Jeff may be right, in that video content is where the future lies, but it needs to meet some sort of middle-ground between review and quick-look.

For all they show you, the discussion is often meandering and doesn't hit every point that I'd like to hear about.

#45 Posted by Branwulf (406 posts) -

A well written review will tell you a lot more about the game, the QL is more for entertainment to me. Still, if i had to pick on over that over it'd be a QL.

#46 Posted by iceman228433 (616 posts) -

It will be Jeff and it will get 5 stars.

#47 Posted by tysonwritesel (90 posts) -

I think Drew should review it and Jeff should do his Halo 4 The First Hour.

I didn't like that game either but that doesn't mean all reviews for halo 4 are going to be inaccurate; you look at the person doing the review, you see how his tastes match up to your own, boom

#49 Posted by DeathbyYeti (744 posts) -

The internet loves reviews

"I dont need reviews but I'll check the score. Why is it so low? I'll buy the game anyway because I like the series" "Why did GAME get such a high score? Bet they are paid off. This series should just die now. I'll try it anyway"

If Jeff doesn't review Halo it would be because he didn't want to.
