Reviews on the Run admit their mistake, promises a re-review

I didn't expect this one.

If you haven't already read up on the review craziness that began yesterday...well, you can find it all right here. The long and short of it was that RotR reviewed a preview copy, one they played back in August, and ended up breaking their review embargo. Oops.

Victor Lucas, one of said reviewers, actually posted an apology and an explanation as to what happened. He begins "We screwed up", and explains what happened. Props to them for the apology, though I do wonder if they're only doing it to save face with Warner Bros.

Further, they promise to do a re-review once the review embargo ends, which they reveal is September 14th, a day before release.

[Thanks, Anon commenter!]


  1. Is it just me, or do they have the lamest possible excuse ever? Seem like they're definitely just trying to ''save face'' like so many corporations/organizations do.
    Tis a grand stage, this life.

  2. this isn't about reviews on the run(who had lame excuse) i just wanted to say that scribblenauts has a screensaver up not sure if thats old news and also i think you should link this website to the thread you made on gaf

    one more off topic thing, what e-mail provider do you use for gaf? i really wanna join but was stumped at "no free email services" so if you know of any service thats exceptable i might have it would be greatly appreciated

    sorry for off-topic-ness

  3. In the next few days, I'm going to use my former girlfriend's college email address, so if you have one or know someone who does, that counts as a ''paid email account.'' At least that's what the interwebz says.

  4. im just wondering about some of the "paid" accounts because im not really sure if i have or can make one

  5. Well, most every ISP offers an email service. So if you get your internet from, same Verizon, you could set up an email like, that sort of thing. You'd have to look into how, but it's possible.

    That, and .edu emails work as well, which are offered by colleges and sometimes highschools.

  6. i love you
    not in a creepy way but u know, maybe i'll use mine when they give us one, cause the year just started

  7. look out for ahomelesshomie on gaf eventually, i also have giantbomb which u apparently love
