That’s not true. Not for a full week, at least. From my memory, it’s only been for the games that ultimately ended up with excellent reviews. I think the Days Gone review embargo was 1-2d prior to release, iirc. I don’t recall even Spider-Man having its embargo a full week prior, tho I could be wrong about that. God of War did it.

So the point is just that this suggests the reviews will end up positive. And that’s exciting, bc there are many people who have been skeptical, myself included. 

Uncharted 4, Horizon Zero Dawn, God of War, Detroit, Spiderman, Days Gone to name a few.

Where are you getting this from? You’re wrong about every single one of those games except for God of War—which I already said was a full week.

Days Gone:  The day before release, which is what I said thought i recalled. https://www.express.co.uk/entertainment/gaming/1113530/Days-Gone-review-embargo-PS4-PlayStation/amp

Detroit:  Day before release. https://www.gamepur.com/news/29015-detroit-become-human-review-embargo-timing-revealed.html

Spider-Man:  3d before release.  https://www.gamespot.com/articles/heres-when-spider-man-ps4-reviews-are-coming/1100-6461414/

Even Uncharted 4, which they knew would review well, only had its review embargo 5d prior to release. https://www.playstationlifestyle.net/2016/05/04/uncharted-4-review-embargo-lifts-tomorrow-may-5/amp/

Wow, does no one find this news interesting or exciting?

Not particularly.  I loathe Kojima games.  Too much talking and too much watching.  I never got the appeal.  I remember beating MGS in 10 hours, and than beating it in 4 hours when skipping everything.  A game shouldn't be 60% watching.

Then you should play MGS5. Not too many cutscenes, and its gameplay is some of the best and most addictive that I’ve experienced in a game in the past decade.

I still prefer MGS4, probably because I'm no much into open world.

Haha I do too. It’s one of my top 3 fav games of all time. I only recommended MGS5 for him bc of what he said his tastes are.

That's certainly a positive sign for the game. If it reviews well, I may buy it when I can grab it for $20 or so.



I was a Day One buyer, but the more I have seen of it, I'm now waiting it out. It could review very well and still be a dumpster fire of ideas and mechanics over being a good game.



I watched the 45 minute gameplay with Kojima, but I'm still not sure I understand what the game is about. I understand that you play the game as a porter and there seems to be heavy emphasis on transporting goods between destinations, but what's with the baby, and is that the core gameplay? Can't wait to play it, as it seems very original and I'm curious what's going on. Admittedly I was playing a game while watching the gameplay, so I didn't quite understand what was going on with the main character, but it seemed like maybe he had a unique blood type or biology that allowed him to preserve the life of the baby? I'm probably way off lol



Next Game with metacritic 90+ incoming...?

Understood, there are certainly plenty of people that love open world.
