Yeah, the ps5 re8 reveal trailer running at 5 frames per second really proved him wrong.

it was more his reasoning for doing it. to "even things out because of the negativity towards xbox".

like no shit the game has a shitty framerate, its still in development ffs! the xbox version was also probably at 5fps too. the guy tried to use it to troll ps5 and spread negativity around the platform and it worked. there was a massive thread on it.

it wasnt just that though. he started going full fanboy mode and saying all sorts of stupid shit and none of it was true. ps5 isnt more expensive than xbox and games aint showing a huge advantage on xbox either. it was just not needed. he does have inside info though. no one can deny that.

Way over a year. Whenever Nintendo decides to release they will say told you so.
Yep, all the “insiders” have been parroting this since 2017. They figure if they say it enough times they will be right eventually. These people are bs con artists, they take advantage of gamers gullibility and the defening silence of most game publishers, all so they can get a little clout. Surprised people haven't seen through their act yet.

Wouldn’t be the first time Nintendo has sat on a game, not sure why y’all find it so hard to believe

[If true] There is absolutely no reason to "hold onto" games that are finished. The only people Nintendo would hurt are themselves. There's a ton of new customers the world over waiting to play the game for the first time! It's time for Samus to continue her journey. Let's go!
There's a very good reason to hold onto it; release it timed to lead up to Prime 4 to create a buzz to pull in those very customers you are talking about

These insiders are just boring right now "Metroid prime trilogy is ready" since the game awards 2017... Yet here we are. Someday it will be ready, but not today.

Completely threw his rep down the drain.
His rep has been down the drain since the very beginning when he was a GAF member and claimed that Scorn was a Sony 1st-party title. He's completely full of shit and always has been.


Edit: Also, Giant Bomb must be REALLY hurting for money right now if they're putting gaming rumors behind a paywall.

Why people are still giving to him credits, I just don't get. He's just like a kid wanting some attention and screaming "HEY LOOK AT ME !"

I’ve asked the gods of Gaf to ban anything by this guy on the forum. But no one listens to me.

Yeap... Nintendo is just holding it because you know they don't need to sell a game that is already completed.

His info and thoughts is probably on point though. Seems reasonable. Credit where credit is due, regardless of what you might think of the messenger.

What relationship does he have with Nintendo?

Google says he was a writer for Warcraft.

They want to sell Metroid Dread first, if anything the Trilogy was delayed because Prime 4 development has been a mess, Metroid Trilogy HD would be a powerful marketing tool for a new game
