What ever happened to the Giant Bomb review?

#1 Posted by mordukai (7129 posts) -

So I've been out of the Twisted Metal loop on this site. I was just reading some reviews from various outlets and I was kinda surprised to see GB never really released a proper review. I thought Jeff was kinda into that game. Anyone knows what ever happened to that review?

Any specific reason? Did they think the game that shitty or was it the case of Bastion where they just feel too close to the developer so they just don't want to review it?

I would love to know how their review process works. I know they said they only cover games they want to, but what do they decide to review.

They skip so many big games, but then review Grand Slam Tennis 2, Neverdead, and so many just terrible to average XBLA games.

CBSi happened.

The game came out in November. I know the move have been in the works for a while but they had time to review other games.

Same reason there never was a Dragon Age 2 review.

There was never a review for DA2 because Vinny gave up on it.

They just don't review some games... even ones they like. Or don't.
