  1. I've flagged this up already, but will be emailing again tomorrow with a link to this thread. Totally unacceptable.
  2. There was a slight disconnect with the voiceover at times, which it felt like Brooker had written for himself. But otherwise I thought this was really good. They absolutely struck the right tone for the BLM section, for which it felt like Jackson and Jones stepped out of character a bit. And I thought Hugh Grant was great. I think I probably prefer the regular Wipe format, but as a stab at a different approach designed for a global audience it worked really well.
  3. Mag dates are always a month in advance, it's only technically two if you pick it up on release day.
  4. I mean, I'm still working in print in 2020, so I'm well accustomed to making bad choices.
  5. I mean, it's pretty commonly used in both contexts. Per Know Your Meme: ""Why Don't We Have Both?" is a reaction image that is used in response to various problems that involve choosing between two options or solutions."
  6. 3D All-Stars was a compilation of three bare-bones HD remasters. Demon's Souls is not just an expensive overhaul of a hugely influential game but one of the most significant launch titles on a new console that happens to feature on the cover. It'd be weirder if it wasn't reviewed.
  7. It's the joint-highest score a Yakuza game has received from Edge, alongside 0 (and, if memory serves, the first two).

  10. It's worse when you're 35 hours in and you're told that it's going to be two pages rather than four.
  11. Because there's an awful lot of reader demand for launch-day reviews. In an ideal world, publications only review games when they feel good and ready, but each day past launch is 24 hours of people shouting "why haven't you reviewed [x]?" and sometimes worse. Obviously less of a problem in print, but late reviews is one of several reasons mag sales have dropped so much in recent years.
  12. I sometimes wish we could get away with that - or, perhaps more accurately, that readers would let us. There comes a point, especially during longer games, where you know your opinion isn't going to change and you're ready to start writing, but by and large I try to finish everything I play. Qazimod mentioned Automata, but the original Nier caught a lot of people on the hop. Loads of people didn't realise the story went on past the credits, to the point where Automata has a message after its first (admittedly shorter) playthrough along the lines of "the story's not finished yet, k
