    Personally, I don't see anything wrong with that. He gave it a good score. Being a editor for xbox doesn't mean he doesn't like ps. Ryan is ok IMO. There are some out there who really are too biased and don't try to hide it. I'd take Ryan over them anyday.

    Is it not actually a good thing that an Xbox guru, or as the OP puts it, "literally the most biased, pro-Xbox fanboy out there" would give a PlayStation game an 8/10? And if you don't play online then all you need to worry about are long loading times, apparrently. You know what else had long loading times? Uncharted.

    If someone who doesn't normally like JRPGs or Sega games or the Dreamcast/GameCube, whatever, reviewed my favorite game and gave it an 8/10, I would be fine with it. Someone who happens to like Xbox gives a baseball game an 8/10 and it's all aboard the IGN hate train. The game isn't going to sell poorly all of a sudden.
    Uncharted has long loading times?

    --

    Not commenting on the actual review; but the guy Ryan is IGN's "go-to" Xbox guy. It'd be like Greg Miller reviewing an Xbox One game. Has Greg Miller reviewed any Xbox games?

    In any discussion videos I've seen with Ryan in it, he always takes the pro-Xbox stance, same as Greg, who tends to take pro-PlayStation stance (this does not mean they are being biased, btw.)

    If you want to hear what he has to say about it, listen to this week's Podcast Beyond. Ryan was on it, and this very topic actually came up. On the show he even recommended an xbox owner buy a PS4.

    He's the resident baseball guy at IGN. He's paid to report on all things xbox, not be a fanboy for them. Just like Colin and Greg, who if you really follow their work take Sony to task on all their mistakes when they make them. Like The Order impressions for example.

    ...Wonderful

    Reviews shouldn't matter anymore when you could easily watch a stream and ask different users how the game is and what they feel about it. Best review ever to me, no bull****

    look, i got overzealous earlier... im sure ryan is giving the game fair reviews. but for me personally, i cant take review sites at their word. Review systems are mega-flawed. Too many times have i seen games (multiplatform) reviewed unfairly... things that give one console a LOWER score dont Lower the score on the other console... Game Parity: Oftentimes a game is legitimately better on one console over the other... but, oftentimes reviews dont reflect that (not all the time, i know, but it happens a LOT)

    If a game site is going to split up the scores they give for multiplatform games... the LEAST THEY CAN DO is review both consoles versions and give the score it deserves independently.

    FOR EXAMPLE: This MGSV:GZ polygon review.(im not agruing about the low score here, but rather, they scored both console version the SAME. They didnt review the xb1 version though as stated in the review itself they only played review code on PS4... so why the same score? XB1 version is FACTUALLY worse than the PS4 version... but the reviewer didnt think that was relevant? sure the majority of readers arent going to have both consoles... but id LOVE to know which version i should get if i DID.




    And if game sites/mags want to have better rounded reviews... at the VERY least have 2 people review it... that way people can compare and contrast the two reviews in a more objective view rather than "xboxarthur's" single, possible biased, review.

    Reminds me of:

    "The Citizen Kane of videogames:

    and:

    It was pure Hollywood. A random, breathtaking moment of awesome directly stemming from ... A purely emergent, life-and-death dance more exciting than every ... quick-time event I've ever half-heartedly button-bashed my way through. Make no mistake; Grand Theft Auto V is made of moments just like this.
    To the right, over the ocean, the sun is setting. The sky glows orange as I near the first turn-off. Pulling into a more built-up area of town I’m reminded of the obsessive, incidental detail that amazed me during our first, hands-off demonstration. The cracked roads. The bespoke graffiti lining the walls. The unique shopfronts and billboards littering your line of sight. The city is colourful yet weathered. Living but lived-in. Like Liberty City before it, Los Santos is already making me feel as much like a tourist as a player.
    IGN is king of hyperbole and hype train of 500%.

    It's like they're staffed by a group of frustrated ex Arts students graduates that all had plays/scripts/etc rejected.

    Pinch. Of. Salt.

    #IndieStation4 and proud of it.

    Might want to try it out before calling it a **** game. As far as realism and detail goes it blows the doors off most sports franchises.

    It's definitely the best baseball game by a long shot, but the NBA 2k series tops all IMO. Their presentations are just fantastic. Even EA is still struggling to match them with their nba live series. They also made a better NFL game too in a lot of gamers eyes. They sure as heck scared EA into locking up that exclusive nfl deal...lol

    I disagree with NBA 2k topping The Show BUT I do agree that 2k was the best NFL series and took a giant dump on Madden.

    You must have never come across the work of well known thespian and successful drama queen, Adam Sessler who called GTA V, the "Charles dic kens novel of our time" in his GTA V review on rev3.

    It's a cacophony of ridiculousness.

    Here's the full quote:

    I think you'll find it was a combination of the 80 discount and a free copy of titfall that allowed it to do slightly better than "diddly". add to the fact, titan fall was the only game that came out that month. On PS4 the sales were spread over 7 games.

    And dont give me that bull crap about oh, but but but bundles aren't counted.

    Wasn't bundling of KNACK, given by certain people, as the only explanation of why it sold so well?

    It has yet to drop lower than 3rd in their charts, I haven't played the game either, but I think any new IP is always on a hiding to nothing in terms being a system seller. It certainly still moving units in large quantities however, bundled or otherwise.
    Is that moving actual consoles though? Dunno.

    Knack never sold well. It debut at 18 and just went down hill from there. Of course there is no accounting for those dam UK chappies tastes.
