GB Review

#1 Posted by andrewf87462 (553 posts) -

Does anyone know if there is going to be a review of this from GiantBomb? I've just seen the review of it over at IGN (they gave it a 9.0), and I would be interested to see what GB thought of it.

I'm with you on this. The beta wasn't exactly the most memorable experience, so I am quite interested to see what everyone thought. Also, I want to see if it's available for download and not just physical media.

Look out for the 'I love Mondays' video this week, or the ticker on the homepage.

I assume they'll at least give it a quick look due to how popular the first game was.

Not too sure. We will most likely get a quick look and probably a TNT but as for a review I don't know. 
 
I guess if you weigh the odds, thats kind of the only game coming out so it has a better chance of getting a review than any other game this week. That is unless they already have their grubby hands on Max Payne and Diablo lll, then there is no way in hell

Odds on for TNT this week - if only because not much is out and they were trolling that they would do minecraft.

Of course, it's a PS3 exclusive *bitch bitch bitch*.

You don't need Ryan, Jeff, Patrick, Alex and Brad to review 2 games.

@SuperSambo: Sure but from the sound of it, they are either interested in Diablo 3 or Max Payne 3. They have barely said a word about Starhawk. If they do review it I'd have to say Alex would write it.

@alternate: A little after that joke, they pretty much said straight out that Starhawk is going to be the TNT this week.

I'd agree with that prediction.

Going by the latest bombcast I can see why you would say that. However, they did give Uncharted 2 GB GOTY. It comes and goes.

I would bet we get a QL, not a review.

The build that was sent out for review was a little dodgy, so we've decided to wait until retail discs are available to take a look at the game.

Minecraft you mean? Because oh God yes. After the quicklook ended all I wanted was more.

Exactly. Utter chaos. Holes getting dug. Trees on fire. Cows beaten to leather. Tunnels flooded. Unexpected lava flows. Brad's home burnt to ash.

The possibilites. Oh, the possibilities.

In Germany and Australia, it's called Heck.

No, but I need all of them to play them so they have something worthwhile to talk about until E3.

#19 Posted by mordukai (7149 posts) -

I'm guessing that Ryan won't be putting on the headset then, right?

Too Soon?!

I don't think so.

Here is IGN's video review if anyone is interested.

Pretty much this. Jeff is on twitter bitching about check points. They did QL of Minecraft simply because it was on 360. They could at least do a QL of PS3 exclusive. Does 360 even have any more real exclusives that aren't piles of trash?

Who says they aren't doing a quick look of it yet? It just came out today. Jeff already said the early build they got in the mail had issues and they decided to wait until release to take a look at it.

With nothing else coming out they should do a review, they don't exactly seem real busy at the moment

#26 Posted by Phatmac (5724 posts) -

They haven't even done a quick loo for it yet so no. Probably not.

honestly i would rather see minecraft over starhawk, starhawk was one of the most boring games i have played in a long long long long time.
