REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

ONE PIECE Unlimited World Red Review
"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

PREVIEWS Pillars of Eternity Preview
For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

I have Demon's Souls and it was too easy because the hints gave everything away.

What is it about that little teary eyed emoticon that emasculates forum sharks into forum goldfish?

Good luck. You don't strike me as a particularly skillful gamer. No offense.

Is that why you don't have a single Demon's Souls trophy? Not even the one for beating the first boss in the game who you're required to beat to do any other levels?

So, two hours in. Enjoyable. I'll write a lengthier impressions piece tomorrow once I've sunk in a bit more.

There's a full review embargo until October 4th. I'm wondering if I can stream my entire day of gameplay tomorrow.... off to e-mail the press reps I go!

Considering there have been thousands of streams and gameplay journals and all of that, I don't doubt they'd let you.

...review embargo? Is there a story behind this worth knowing?

Sure. I'll write a manifesto tomorrow to explain because i think you guys really like the transparency here at GR and embargoes aren't exactly common knowledge among gamers.

I mean, what could you do to NOT make us want the game?

Not die?

Doesn't it just mean "Don't publish reviews before this date or we won't give you copies and sue you" or something like that?

It's one of the many ways the publishers have strong-armed the whole journalism/reviewing industry, and when coupled with the "incentives" to give a good review, it can be deadly.

That's the long and the short but it does get more complicated and it's not so outright threatening to the journalist.

Well after listening to podtoid all the time last year, I just thought embargoes meant you couldn't talk about the game at all, but I'm sure different publishers have different rules.


And I would assume if it's already out in Japan, they wouldn't care about a stream - but who knows.

Fixed.

I think Longo did a pretty good assessment of what an embargo is.
