Why is the quick look for this going up at two o'clock in the morning on Sunday?

I'm assuming there's some sort of video embargo saying they can't put the video up before 12/4. Also, 2 AM for us (I'm assuming you're also midwest) is midnight for Giant Bomb.

Embargos. Also, it's 8 for me. Not everyone lives in the same place. It'd be way too crowded.

3:01 where i am. Maryland. for anyone who doesn't know Maryland is by Washington D.C. But I agree it is probably a embargo, and i don't think they have a automated system of uploading videos. so im betting jeff is going to be staying up until midnight.

I'm pretty sure the distillery allows them to upload content and auto publish articles and videos.

Funny that there's an embargo. Yo, It's more Mario Kart.

There's an embargo, but thats the whole point of scheduling the quick look when it is. Its not like they put up the time and then thought, "oh, shoot! we can't do it at this time!" and didn't put it out. I'm sure they are well aware of when they are able to release info about it and planned accordingly. It is just weird that it has not gone up yet, when the schedule still shows it.

edit: aha! it would have been smart of me to reload my main page before commenting lol. looks like its all according to plan.
