Just saw a ACIII commercial on Comedy Central and the first mention of a review was just a black screen that said "10/10 Game Revolution". Thought it was cool. Been a little while since I've seen the site mentioned in a tv AD.

I saw this too, at first I thought "we on tv" then I thought wait, it's 5 stars not 10/10. It is nice to see though.

They have released a revised commercial that says 5/5. I believe Ugh posted it in the "Awesome" thread.

Yeah, I saw the commercial on Adult Swim while I was at my mom's that week. Luckily she had a DVR, because I had to take a double look.
