Will reviewers refuse to score GTA IV low?

A lot of big name titles seem to get scored based on name alone these days. Halo 3 for all its hype didn't even excite me enough to finish it. (yet) From what I played, it seems a score of 8-8.5 would've made more sense. But which review...

Microtransactions R TEH SUK

About DeaconBladeone of us since 9:06 AM on 10.06.2007



I'm Deacon. I'm no one really. I'm just a guy from Dallas who has a show and website on the Xbox 360 community. It's called Unscripted 360. I do a normal recorded show there and a live show. You can call in live and all that stuff. It's pretty wicked.

I'm currently an Xbox MVP and founder of the 360 Laws. Read up on the 360 Laws Picture Packs etc right here. I'm pimpin' one of the pics from the Picture Pack right now on my profile. They're on the Marketplace for download.

After hanging out with the Destructoid crew at an EA event, I realized they're just about as crazy as I am so I had to have a D-Blog.

Note to everyone about Destructoid hazing...it's REAL. They make you jump in pools with your clothes on and swim in weird places. It's true.

I hope you guys enjoy whatever bit of blogging I do here. Drop me a line sometime or not. See ya on the blahg.

Look for Unscripted 360 content on Xbox Live Marketplace! https://www.unscripted360.com/2008/02/01/360-laws-picture-pack-2/
