    what the hell

    did anyone expect this game to get reviews saying it's amazing, let alone good.

    especially since they were selling a season pass for it before it came out and everything.

    That feel when almost everyone fails to judge a game by the same stupid, arbitrary standards as you

    a game has zero advertising except for like one trailer, has a season pass before it comes out suggesting they are milking it before its out, and literally wasnt talked about at all till now

    guess what that usually predicts about a game.

    Personally, I think they're best game is still Blood. Could just be the nostalgia talking though...

    yea but there hasnt been a proper marketing blitz for this game. Except for the single game informer mag and the trailer stuff you linked, name me one time people have actually brought it up in a conversation to talk about it.

    If the game was really amazing, why would WB try to quietly "hide it". it just really confuses me.

    They did a 3 hour playthrough on the game without major spoilers. The game plays great but I'll wait till Christmas for a hopeful sale.

    Oh no, two people that work together but have different opinions. How absurd.

    idk what "hide it" means to you, but they wouldn't have gotten all those awards at E3 if they were trying to hide it ... maybe because the time frame from it being announced to the time it's being released is shorter than normal that you're not releasing how much they did marketing wise (see Faust's post)
