So the reviews else where are good for Lego City: Undercover
Given the amount of coverage of the Lego games in the past, I am surprised they not done anything yet for it.
They were playing it yesterday for the Wednesday show and Ryan said he had played a good chunk of it. He thought the Gamespot review was too positive (8) so take from that what you will.
Jeff expressed extreme dislike for much of what it was doing too, so don't expect glowing reviews when it's time for them to talk about it.
Keep in mind the Giant Bomb crew also doesn't like LittleBigPlanet. I can personally tell you that Lego City is the most charming game of the year so far, the GB crew are just cynical ass hats about these kinds of games.
Jeff gave both of the PS3 LBP's 5 stars.
Game looked like ass on Professional Wednesday.
Don't most games wind up looking like ass on Professional Wednesdays? :P
It probably didn't help that it was being shown to a room full of people who decided it looked bad without having even touched it. Not that the game is particularly special, it's essentially another LEGO game of the same level of quality as the others (though with some nasty framerate and loadtime issues).
@xpgamer7: Yep. I was originally harsh on the thread creator, and he did kinda jump the gun on the thread at the time he made it. Sometimes Giant Bomb will still Quick Look a game after release week, but at most they might do something like 7 or 8 days after it came out (assuming it's a retail game; indie games, on the other hand, can get Quick Looked nearly any time).
If they don't Quick Look it by then, but they sort of intended to, then it seems to become a perpetual joke on I Love Mondays, as happened with Orcs Must Die 2, and NeverDead (which ultimately got a Quick Look months and months after it came out because Vinny and Brad were bored after New Year's).
At this point, I really doubt this game will get any sort of Quick Look, beyond the small amount of joint coverage it got on that one Professional Wednesdays a while back.
