I'm glad Gearbox aren't jerks and put a ban on reviews like other companies

Wanna read a review? Lol, sorry, gotta wait till midnight Tuesday to read it!

I hate bastard game companies that pull that crap, like their game is so special we have to wait a until a predetermined time to read about the game.

Actually they did. Most places can't post a review before 9 pm Monday night. IGN and a couple others got special permission to post early.

That's my bad. Read the topic title too fast, didn't recognize the sarcasm in first post as a result.

How is it dumb? Because some people misread the topic? That doesn't make my thread dumb, it makes everyone else dumb.

Ummm, there is nothing "special" about review embargoes as they're common practice. That is to say, these companies aren't trying to be "special", they often have a number of reasons in doing so.

I agree, I feel most companies don't like reviews getting released due to the risk of possible spoilers.
