yup

Wow. So I’ve finished the game, getting the secret ending as well.

His review reads like he didn’t actually play it. Talking about not “interacting” with permanent upgrades much. Which means he didn’t really do anything? Everything he describes reads like he just … didn’t put any effort into it at all. I think it’s one of the best crafted experiences I’ve played in years, and I can explain why, while he’s talking about not being able to tell what’s water (what?) or that enemies often are on the horizon line so they are hard to see or something. All of that is just baloney.

He must enjoy purposefully being a moron. He knows what he’s doing. Unless he is truly that stupid?

I foresee a 90+ Metacritic and ten pages of bitching about Jeff Grubb giving the game a 7.5/10.
Seems reasonable.

I expect soners to bash into every single review who doesn't score the game at least a 9.

Don't get me wrong, i have the game in preorder for months and i'm gonna be there day one, but i perfectly know what i'm buying and i don't excpect a paradigm shifting game from a ratchet title, my biggest fear is probably the game being piss easy like the old ones and too much alternative stuff to do like the shitty clank puzzles or on rail stuff that steal time to the tps\exploration part (the best part for me).

Yep, from the gameplay video it looked like good old Ratchet. We also had several people in the gameplay thread complain about how the gameplay looks old and boring. Which is likely true, but it's also what most people want (myself included).

In a world that contains stuff like doom eternal or even the last arrived returnal, the tps part of ratchet seems a bit semplicistic, slow, easy etc but they can't transform the game into something completely different, few games get that right (gow 2018 for example).

But it is a legitimate critique imo, unless insommiac really stepped up their tps part with this last game, but i sincerely don't believe so even if the game is gonna be great overall.

Previews? Isnt it review time in a couple days?

Im expected the usual Ratchet goodness and reviews

But I would really like a new Sly Cooper or Jak n Daxter game.
Something including more JnD 1 gameplay and J2 for a sequel would be awesome

Oh, i thought it would start with Jeff's review, but it started right here and right now :messenger_tears_of_joy:
Yeah, exactly like i predicted, people jumping on everyone who doesn't scream 10\10 from the roof of his house.

It's gonna be fun my dude 🕺

So, is this going to be one of those games where any reviewer giving it less than an 8 is going to be subject to death threats (see BotW etc)?

That's his hope.

I wonder though, can these pathetic wankers actually make money from their twitter 'fame'?

Video is deleted. Anyone have a backup link for that one?

It spoils a small part of the game, no need to watch it.

Bo... I respect you and all, but we gotta talk about the elephant in the room... And before I assume you must have an alt account or something... But only 4% in BugSnax...?! We all know that was your first platinum.

Man, it was torture to play it. You know, the early days with so little games around. :lollipop_tears_of_joy:

He is taking the piss but sometimes people don't get the joke

He is the joke, and the piss.

From what I’ve seen, reviewers get attacked for their opinion, especially about Sony’s games. If I reviewed HZD I wouldn’t give it more than a 7, but that would come with Sony fans sending death threats.
