@ntm: That makes sense, I guess it was just a perfect storm for Ubisoft that the people chosen to review the game liked it since the scores from a bunch of the big sites, (eg. Giant Bomb, Gamespot, Ign) were decently high, when it seems now that that group is a minority.
So here's something that I've wondered for a while and the recent talk about Syndicate sparked my curiosity again. Why is this game something that is talked about as quite possibly the worst Assassin's creed game? This is especially confusing to me especially looking at review scores the game got (4/5 on GB, 95 on Game Informer). Even the user metacritic isn't terrible (6.9 which is what syndicate is sitting at). Was it just a after the fact revelation that everyone got at the same time that this game was apparently garbage. I'm asking as someone who hasn't played it yet by the way.
I'm worried that, since there's no upcoming listing for a future episode, they're going to be doing it 1 or 2 per week, which it going to stretch it out for almost as long as all the other Metal Gears.
I mean, we got really spoiled by the end of Metal Gear Scanlon 4, where it was pretty much MGS4 week on the site with 7 episodes in 7 days, shortly followed by the Peace Walker and Ground Zeroes videos.
It's hard to go back to the normal release schedule.
With this time there being a "monday" release I'm hoping it'll at least be Monday Wednesday Friday
Sorry if this is semi- off topic but a thought I've had was what do you guys think will be the way this spoiler/ending is handled in descriptions/wiki articles about the game. For example because its still early I'm not surprised most wiki entries on here and on metal gear wikia are still talking about the whole game as if its big boss defeating skullface. I wonder if we'll get to a place where you'll start seeing "Venom snake, not big boss, defeats skullface" or will it always be the truth that we're led to believe before the ultimate ending. Just wondering what duders out there have to say about this.
