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.

It definitely would not have happened. Regardless I think part of it was also vast swaths of critics drinking the Halo koolaid and feeling like they couldn't give more than one game a high score this Fall.

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