Because SE kindly asked them not to do a Review on FFXIV.
As if they'd have done a Review or even mention it anyway.
Okay, I guess you missed the part about OPEN BETA, CE RELEASE, and SE RELEASE too.
Okay, let me try this again. Gamespot made no "Hey guys, here's what we think of the Open Beta!" news item. Nor did it say "Oh hey guys, FFXIV CE is out!" And even on the "real" retail release.... silence. For a game of this caliber (hype+awareness, certainly not quality) from AAA+ known publisher, that's **** strange. No story has been made from Gamespot since mid August before OB even started and now... their pages for the game 404 out.
Now, does THAT clear up what I'm asking about?
