The title says it all. I know The Dice Tower already got their copy, but I don't think they are planning on doing the review any time soon. So... Anyone else?

Maybe we (the comunity) should make some presure on TDT and other reviewers?

What do you think?

It’s a wildly popular IP. Most people don’t even have it yet. I’m sure with in a few weeks there will be lots of reviews.

I hope so... But on the video Tom Vassel did on the studio tour, for example, the game was on a shelf he said had games that might never get reviewed, depending on their feeling to do it so.

Who cares is tom plays it, his opinions are suspect considering some stuff. If you want to see someone play it and give an opinion of it, Rhado did a play though of the prototype and that was before it dot even more polished.

I haven't recieved it yet. Also, I like the reviews both for knowledge and entertainment purposes.

I care... And I like his opinions. The same could be said for any reviewer, including Rahdo. I've already seen Rahdo's video. I like to listen to all opinions so I can make up my own opinion, and that includes playing the game afterwards. But as I said above, I like them for enterteinment purposes too...

I would guess he means that he suspects that Tom is paid to say he likes certain games?

I don't know anything about that, but I find Tom's overviews very informative and I enjoy his videos and then make my own decision from it.

I watch reviews more for entertainment than anything else.

I like Rahdo runthoughs quite a bit to learn and get a feel for a game, but he’s so enthusastic that he makes the game seem more fun than it really is. I don’t care for his final thoughts at all anymore though - he can find theme in an empty box and he’s so enthusastic about everything that there’s no value in his opinion (for me).

I don’t think Tom is suspect. He just plays so many games that he can’t possibly give them the time of day, and if he has a bad day himself it will show in his review. It must be tough to remain enthusastic about games when you’re opening box after box each week with new stuff to play/review.

I would rather play a game with out any outside opinions. As I have seen it influence people’s decisions negatively against a game. Watching a play thru to see how it is played is one thing But, over all I do not like critics in games, movies, etc as it always seems there is some bias in thier review. People need to stop letting the internet make decisions for them and use thier freedom of mind to make their own decisions if they like something or not. Miniature quality is a lot better than ghost busters and it is more challenging. I like the game I give it a 👍🏻

Oh man...
You shouldn't have said that.
Now, I'm biased.
