Giant Bomb, I officially don't get you and your rating system. Why? Since yesterday I have been playing Skyrim for quite some time now and although this game is quite great and deserves great scores, some sites mentioned it's huge bugs and they're right. You guys had to give it a 5/5 star score when just this morning I couldn't complete a quest because the game kept bugging me out of the next step?

Now, most sites don't mention any bugs whatsoever in Skyward Sword and you guys just happen to find reasons to lower its score to a 4/5 which is not bad but compared to the other 88 games you guys have rated with 5/5 rating, this just gotta be a joke. Flower 5/5? Kirby's Epic Yarn 5/5? NBA 2K12 even with its huge online failures? GTA: Chinatown Wars? Wow...

But hey, it's your opinion and everybody is entitled to their own but thanks to this I now know where NOT to look for a general reference in game-buying...PEACE!

You're looking for buying advice but apparently you still disagree with the review before you've played the game. Sounds to me like you're looking for validation, not purchasing advice. Do you only want to read stuff that agrees with your opinions?

Not really...but putting flaws in balance what do you think will affect the player's experience most? An overworld which doesn't quite feel connected, a minigame which has no part of the main quest, or a game which overall has programming issues and doesn't even let you complete quest? I think is safe to say that Skyrim should have gotten a 4/5 also just because of this flaw only. It is pretty frustrating...

You're right. You don't get their rating system, because Jeff has stated that the rating is an afterthought. You also don't seem to get that people have different tastes. Patrick didn't review Skyrim. He seems to really like it, but who knows, if he reviewed it, maybe it also would have gotten 4 stars.

You are the perfect example of someone who needs to just calm down about ratings. Maybe you weren't overtly angry or tossing out profanity, but you're still placing too much weight on insignificant stars. Still comparing one review to another, especially when done by different people. This is the sort of thing that needs to stop.

Stop caring so much about stars. Read the review. Agree with it. Don't agree with it. Just stop caring so much that one guy liked one game more than another guy liked another game.

Never realized Drew kinda looks like Dexter.

Been waiting to hear someone vocalize this in a video for a while now. I'm sure he hears it all the time, but I just needed to hear someone else say it.

@Grimmy616: Well the song is an orchestral version of Progenies of the Great Apocalypse. It wasn't made for the game, but it's cool that it got used.

Wait, was that Dimmu Borgir playing in the movies at the end...? That came outta nowhere.

GiantBomb puts out so much non-subscriber content in the first place I would feel dirty not giving them money, so I did and now I get even more cool stuff!!!! Thanks GiantBomb!

Yeah same. I enjoy supporting the site. Stuff like this is a nice bonus for people who do pay. If you don't or can't pay I don't look down on you or anything. Just don't get mad for them making some subscriber-only content as a thanks to the people who help keep the site up. Without the subscribers we likely wouldn't have this site at all and there would be no content, free or otherwise.

This is what happens when Jeff and Ryan are not at home. :|

Awesome TNTs? Maybe they should be gone more often, then!

I don't think people are being too fair to Brad. For being away from the game for like a year and a half he didn't do that bad at all. He knew how all the special infected work and managed some good hits (usually against me..). Not knowing/remembering the maps will always make it seem like you're stumbling around. He also waited too long to spawn sometimes, but I don't really blame him for being unsure of the best attack opportunities. Sometimes you wait for that right moment and it just doesn't come.

You also have to take into account that he couldn't really communicate with his team very well. He was talking via stream which would be delayed if his team was listening. Though to be fair, they turned all-talk on (for some reason) so my team didn't talk much either since it probably would have given things away.

Who was the hunter who pounced Brad so hard it caused him to drop to desktop? Oh wait, it was me. Aw yeah.

I also bat him to death after a failed spit. Poor Brad. :(
