This week on Zero Punctuation, Yahtzee reviews Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, the exclusively PlayStation 5 adventure from Insomniac Games.
I apologise for the abject blandness of this take. And also for the lateness of this review. It would have come out sooner if we’d gotten a review code before the release date but Sony wouldn’t give us one when they found out what it was for. They said that, quote, “Given the tone of that coverage, we’d prefer you secure your own code.” From where, Sony, the fucking dumpster outside your office? I don’t normally give you these cheeky little glances behind the beef curtains but I mean, really. I guess we all knew publishers want to dictate the content of reviews, hence those review guides they keep sending us that read like a timid schoolchild asking to please not be kicked in these specific sensitive areas, but I didn’t expect them to just come out and admit it. What’s your problem with my “tone,” Sony? You didn’t know I’d make the “snatchet” joke.
How far up their own ass are Sony nowadays. Holy shit.
Censoring Japanese games, not giving reviewers copies, because they don't like their style?
I am very happy, that I did not buy a PS5.
