    The thumb rule with IGNorance scores is that the bigger the publisher, the more you automatically drop the score (Can do later adjustements to them though).

    EA/ATVI(Similiar scaled companies) are instant 3 points drop on biggest releases and 2 on others
    Microsoft (Any company on this tier) is 2 points drop
    Rest are 1.5

    I agree on that Salandrin the Halo series is 1 of my favorite story lines and games to date but i also know the history of IGN and the fact nobody has gotten any good tries on Spartan Campaign yet. Beside those that have done the demo version of it on E3 or any other major game expo

    All you have to do is look at IGN's Dragon Age 2 review to see why I don't trust their scoring system.

    Tbh after halo 3 being meh and supposedly being the last in the series i would expect this to be a flashy cashcow and i'm not interested in playing it

    IGN gives Halo 4 a 9.8

    Microsoft gives IGN 9.8 million worth in advertising.

    I made that number up I don't know how much those ads are worth. That said, this game's been in development for a while so who knows? Maybe they actually are giving it plenty of TLC.

    IGN is about the least credible site out there, and yes they seem to be quite happy to be payed for their reviews. Halo 4 might be an awesome game but what IGN says about that is worth about the same as the dirt stuck to my sneakers.

    So many people saying Ign is paid for reviews, but does anyone actually have any credible evidence or is this just based on opinions and imagination?

    Heres one reason besides it's just common sense it's a buyers market for game companies giving exclusives previews and shit to sites. You don't get special characters in games like ME3 for long if you start biting the hand feeding you.

    I've a friend who works for destructiod, he often gets games early to test them, so he often gives me the "inside scoop" on if its any good or not ^_^

    I hear bad bad things about the ending being a quick time event, which would utterly piss me right the fudge off.

    Also, I wish the rating system was actually used like it is supposed to. It used to be where games with a 6-7+ were awesome and a 8-9 was rare. Now everything that isn't 9+ is considered crap by alot of people and 10's are given out way to often.

    If you must insist on using a non-sanctioned sitting apparatus, please consider the tensile strength
    of the materials present in the object in question in comparison to your own mass volumetric density.

    In other words, stop breaking shit with your fat ass.

    Not any different then Blizzard paying PC/MMO-Gaming Sites to give there games higher scores as well. But then again I will probably get bashed as Blizzard is an angle and would never do anything like that right?

    Well considering IGN is corrupt as fuck, this doesn't surprise me.

    I'm sure Halo 4 will be a good game, but I mean, cmmon, It's IGN we're talking about here.

    sounds good, but to be honest, I will never ever hear again on sources like that afte GW2, Swtor....and lot more

    Last I checked, no one in their right mind trusts or even cares what IGN has to say about a game.

    My opinion is that I don't care what IGN gives the game, it could give it a -10 for all I care, I will be getting Halo 4 and I will enjoy the crap out of it, even if I was not a Halo fan or this was a game I do not like I could care less what IGN has to say about it.

    Salandrin stated it as a fact, not an opinion.

    One could say you just did the same thing :O

    If you enjoy the game, cool, just don't try to shove that down everyone's throat and I won't try to rip you a new sphincter.

    I'd much rather go watch a video of someone doing a walkthrough, those normally aren't full of pants-on-headness that usually end up in video reviews.

    How they stated it is irrelevant. The bolded part that krethos referenced was specifically about Halo being a series filled with masterpieces - something he clearly disagreed with. He proceeded to mock them for holding them with such regard.

    I scolded someone for scolding someone for having a different opinion? And now you're scolding me for scolding someone for scolding someone for having a different opinion? Well, we should probably stop before we create an infinite loop.

    Also, I think we have very different ideas of what it means to shove something down someone's throat.
