The first thing Giant Bomb says on their launch day PS5 stream is "GOD FALL IS BAD!" Like the very first minute of the PS5 stream lol. Oof.

But for some reason we have to believe the media was bought by Sony to only talk good about them.

Still better than I thought to be honest^^ Buy Demon's Souls if you want a great game with knight's armour... It's "only" a remake and not an original game like this but it will be 10x better.

Considering how Giant Bomb started you're not really making a compelling "gotcha!" here.  Their attitude is in no way indicative of what the rest of mainstream games media may/may not have been financially compelled into selling.

Media seemed pretty neutral on the consoles so far. They have been reporting devs opinion. Sure there were extra coverage of Xbox because Phil Spencer have been very vocal. Also there were more nasty rumors from PS5 since Sony have been less vocal. But all the "Sony is paying devs and media to sugar coat PS5 and hide its weakness" can't really be proved with evidence.

You mean *without evidence, right?  Because I get that.  At the same time, using Giant Bomb shitting on a PS5 console-exclusive as evidence of games media not being bought out holds no water because of the disparity.  It's tougher to consider GB being potentially influenced by goodies when their founder was previously fired for not giving into that before.

It looked uninspired from the beginning, I'm not all that surprised.

Bloomberg have several reports negative towards Sony as well. But still you got it, there isn't any evidence of Sony buying the media, even more when well Xbox had a lot more coverage.

Giant Bomb is about as unbiased as it gets. If anything I respect their brutal honesty as a general rule.

Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

Although critics are being rough, I've heard it's not AS bad with the general populace. XBL friend who got it has given surprising praise to it. I wonder if it has crossplay, b/c I can't remember if he got it on PC or if he even bought a PS5 yet.



The co-op might give it extra life. Hacking and slashing away with friends sounds fun.
