of course they're going to make sure they get good reviews

If Sony or any of the other big companies bribed reviewers we would know about it down to the deepest detail.
No matter how shit you think this world is there will at least be one person who either feels they need to leak it or there will be someone who gets fucked over hard enough by one of these companies to the point where they feel like they have nothing to lose.

You are literally fucking seperating your rationale with reality at this point.

You cannot point me to a single REAL incident of mass bribing in gaming.

Try me bitch, i have looked.

>>367730082
I wouldn't say there is direct actual bribing.

But I think bullshit scores happen on an implicit level when publishers are spending millions on marketing on the very same sites that are doing the reviews. Those sites are complicit in the pre release 'hyping' of games and often get kind of locked into saying the game is good.
I mean most of their day to day content is basically advertising branded as 'preview' content
>>
>>367730562
This would be a slippery slope mate.

It would be like someone giving Mario a bad review for not being VR.

Reviewers who aren't reviewing a game based on what it offers SHOULD be fuckin fired.

It is funny because every single time that i have seen game promotions on websites, those sites DONT REVIEW THE GAME. Look no further than EZA and Scorn.
>>
>>367731954
The conflict of interest is inherent when the sites that do the reviews totally depend on the big publishers financially. I mean if companies like EA and Ubisoft just said 'we aren't going to show or say anything about the game until release' then 90% of these sites would go down the shitter overnight.

I mean in some ways it's worse than bribery. The dependence is so great that they don't even HAVE to bribe them to just get the same thing
>>
>>367727054
The reviews could be moved for after the game comes out, it'd still get praised by the media because muh progressive

Of course it's going to get good reviews, it's a AAA title didn't get great reviews?
When I was a kid and not that many years ago really, AAA games regularly fell flat on their faces but at some point AAA were guaranteed a good reviews.
That's just the norm now, big budget=good reviews, I'm not going to speculate why but I have noticed the change happen at some point.

That one Ninja Theory tweet where they said X magazine gave a positive review for DmC before the score was officially out
>>
>>367728045
After watching over 2 hours of gameplay footage, I can safely say rave reviews, especially any mentioning visuals or voice acting as anything more than "mediocre" and "total trash" respectively, are paid for by Sony.
>>
>>367732956
Real media reports news. Games media ''''reports''' a companies advertising.

Go look at any games site when they all get preview shit at the same time. They all use the exact same language and talking points because it's basically a press release redrawn as an 'article'
>>
what is this game

>>367733147
Pathetic. What is the crime here sir? That someone got a hold of the review earlier than the public?
Jail them i say.
>>367733256
So because you look at stale as fuck gaming sites with normie centric articles i guess all 10/10 reviews must be bribes.

I mean for fuck sakes anon stop with the tinfoil hatting.
>>
>>367727197

We've already seen all the tricks and stunts the game has thanks to the autist who streamed it for hours yesterday. We know that any scores of 9+ are Sony bribes or goldface posters on /v/. The shit AI, braindead combat of Hold Triangle to Win, clunky and awkward animation and control, and the middling writing firmly plant this turd into the trashheap of open world yawn bringers

It's a post-apocalyptic combat-oriented adventure game with crafting set in a world where humans live at odds with dinosaur-like machines and other humans.

Dan hsu has written about it twice and every other year an editor explains how the system works. You give good reviews or you don't get games before launch to review. That's not counting the use of special review sessions in Hawaii and paid events which are highly influential and well documented in social psychology as being effective. There is of course actual bribery but it's tertiary to more effective practices.

They lose the ability to acquire advance review copies of games, meaning they can't produce reviews anybody will read and thus have no platform to announce what you're talking about.

it was an abortion that sony clearly just wanted to get out the door and forget about as soon as possible. they didn't want to invest into the game because they obviously didn't believe in it enough to keep it borderline cancelled for 8 of those 10 years. they just wanted to shutup that niche group of faggots who couldn't let the game go cancelled without a shitstorm. the games release was literally damage control.

No, it attacks any hostiles nearby. Part of the stream last night had a friendly bot wander into a camp the player was hiding in and start smashing the patrolling guards.

Its just that the AI takes ages to initiate attacks, just stand in front of you and wait 3 seconds before doing an easily dodged charge attack.

I know Horizonbro posted in chat he thought the first three-four hours were good and then nosedived in quality. I genuinely think Sony wants reviews of this out early because it stinks so bad it's better to hope people forget the bad reviews by the time it comes out, never mind Zelda.

>triple a game
>not 9.0 +/- .5

official triple a rating scale

>over 9.5 - it's good enough plus the hooker they got for you from the vacation getaway they had for the preview of the game licked your asshole
>9.5 - it's actually good and everything fans thought it would be
>9.25 - it's mostly what fans expected and is fun to play
>9.0 - not quite what people wanted, basically another generic entry in the same genre, not really fun but you can drone through it
>8.75 - it's pretty disappointing. major design elements that were originally shown or promised are missing
>8.5 - it's garbage but the publishers can't pull ads for an 8.5, can they?
>under 8.5 - it's absolute shit plus the hooker they got for you from the vacation getaway they had for the preview of the game gave you herpes

*scores may vary based on the size of the check they receive

So the main character is an android right?

Oh it gets better.

One quest in the stream last night was investigating why a village went "dark" for a woman in the 2nd tribes city (large stone fortress, heavy Chinese style armour).

Ends up they were attacked by tons of dino-bots, and you find a beacon there that drew them. Ends up being the womans brother, who wanders into the middle of the camp and starts doing a terrible moustache-twirling "mwahahaha it was me all along" exposition dump....only for a robo-bird to fly in off screen, grab him, fly up and drop him. All while Aloy and the woman are standing there with expresionless stares.

What's going to be more fun at a party? Playing Bloodborne and raging every time you die, or playing stupid games like this for good laughs with your buddies. Don't tell me you don't have any friends anon...

What will really happen:

>Doesn't sell because girls and numales don't play games, and sony dudebros don't want to play as an ugly chick
>Good reviews that are paid for, positives don't actually mention gameplay
>Poor sales numbers come in
>Kotaku and/or Polygon take a victim narrative and use this game's failure as an example of gamers being mysoginists
>Game is forgotten about in a month

they do not need to be paid for advertisement of the game they are reviewing to be beholden to the publishers of the game.
Big, hyped games are what makes people come to their site, see the ads, and ultimately makes them get paid for whatever these ads happen to present.

If a publisher were to not give them access to their game, people would not come to their site, not see the ads, and they would not be paid by the advertiser.

The flow of money is not direct, but it is no less real a stranglehold the publishers have them in.

it evens up the graphical fidelity so you can shitpost on /v/ I agree thought, but making your screenshot mode produce bullshots feels kind of wrong

I was so hoping someone would have webm/recorded this.

We would have had another Brom spammable cutscene on our hands.

What will actually happen

>people who preordered will return the game immediatly and i will get yelled at because niggers can't understand "this is new, our policy is "you cannot return this game" after i explain it to them ten times

>it'll get an 82 on metacritic and then be lauded as trash on the internet with a dragon age 2 user score of 6 or under.

>>367755313

There's a few of them of them. Like that that whole cringe shit in "The Lodge" about how it's all welcoming to women and minorities now.

Fuck. Hope Horizonbro at least saved it himself so he can reupload it.

Yeah all those 8s instead of 9s
