youre wrong. The kotaku review only came out 2 days ago or something, and they specifically bash square for giving them a review copy so late "
That's why I said "not always." Still, I appreciate the input.

Yes they are, but not in all the reviews. I think Metacritic just achieves a certain number of game reviews in aggregating scores or something else. Have a look at Dante's Inferno, GB's review isn't there.

This reminds me of Ryan's review of Dante's Inferno. That one was really late. I dunno, I just want to see Giantbomb be included in Metacritic and the other similar sites that aggregate scores. I want them to "win," like, be at the top if  you will, or amongst the top. It's a good advert for the site to get a review done pretty much on time.

I understand the GB krew is busy. I understand when a review is a day or two late (or maybe till 3 days). I don't understand when a review is really overdue.

I can't decide between Infamous and GTA4 really. Both are great games. Jeff's review article on GTA4 was amazingly well written, it felt like what has to be said on this game were all said in one page, you can feel on Jeff's words the exact emotion you have with the game. Brad's video review on Infamous was awesome, right choice of words were used that it makes you really want to get to the store and buy the game. Actually, that's what I did!
