Gosh, this is so sad, and totally unnecessary. Inferno and the other reviewers do a truely excellent job, as do the walkthrough writers and others on hints and tips.
It must be so difficult not to add the odd spoiler when reviews are written, that what makes them so interesting to read and makes one keen to buy the game.
I realise that games cost a lot of money to develop and developers want us to have as enjoyable experience as possible. But, surely its an individual's choice to read reviews, walkthroughs, post hints and ask for help. No-one is twisting their arm to do so. Cheer up folks!! :cat:

Hi,
I and MSTUDIOS have never slammed INFERNO, all I said was that usually a disclaimer goes with a review copy to make sure nothing is leaked, this includes code and game ideas, the review copy came from G2 not from MSTUDIOS. I have spoken to INFERNO personally and helped her with her review and questions regarding the game and the team. I whole heartedly agree with alot the forum is saying, I also can see where FABLE is coming from, FABLE was one of our playtesters on the game and I have spoken to him regarding this issue. He just feels upset that the help he gave was to help INFERNO with the review and he thought he and INFERNO had an understanding regarding hints, and solutions, this obviously was not the case, I have asked him to refrain from posting on this site under this topic as this clouds the matter. MSTUDIOS has done nothing but help INFERNO and others on this forum with question regarding G2, shipping and the game itself. One copy was sent out to one forum member personally by myself when they had been let down by G2.
The forum member who mentioned MOTRAU.......he is open to this forum and can post when he feels fit, at the time though the game was not complete and security protocol had to come into play.
I apologise for any ill feeling, this has been sorted now and I look forward to the review of the game.

Kind Regards

Which part of "it would be best that a review of this game by GameBoomers not be done" did you not understand?

How sad that so many of us we're looking forward to this game and have now decided not to buy it.I alway's look for a review of a game before I buy it,Inferno writes great reviews after reading one you pretty much know if your gonna buy it or not.I'm alwaya looking in the discussion forum to see how players like a game,and as for the hints forum.All my games would be half finished if I couldn't go there for some help,or to look at the walkthrough.In my opinion it's a shame that Inferno was slammed like that,I won't be buying the game either.

How sad. I have never come across a software company who has managed to put so many peoples backs up so unnecessarily.
Its a shame as the game looks great.
Inferno, please don't let this put you off reviewing.

I too was looking forward to purchasing this game but in light of this shameful verbal attack upon Inferno I think I will also pass. I am a pretty good gamer myself but I do have the need from time to time to ask for hints or glace at a walkthrough. Life is too short and too many games to play to ponder over one game,no matter how good it may be,for months at a time for a solution when all one need do is ask for a hint.

Hi,
I have apologised to the forum regarding FABLE and his posts, this will not happen again, the reason for the same IP address is that we have a single machine for internet which is seperate from development machines because of security on our network.
The review is an exclusive given to GAMEBOOMERS regarding the title and noone else yet worldwide. To post the review is entirely up to GameBoomers, but the game should not be slated or MSTUDIOS for FABLE's opinions which are his and not MSTUDIOS.

FABLE is only a minor part of the team and working on localisation playtesting. His opinions are not the opinions of MSTUDIOS and the rest of the team.

Steve....sell it to someone else. Last I looked in the mirror it didn't say stupid across my forehead. Honestly, give it a rest already and tell your alter ego Fable to do the same. shame

I feel very sorry for the rest of your team. They must pay for your mistakes. How sad for them...

GameBoomers was not given a review of Limbo of the Lost as an "exclusive." The game arrived without a letter from the publisher or any other documentation (which is not that unusual), and everyone here assumed that it was sent by the publisher in the usual way and that review copies were arriving at every other adventure site and every other game site.

Hi Becky,
I can but apologise for the lack of info from G2, but can asure you 100% it is a world exclusive, I have told INFERNO that personally via email. No other web site or publication is reviewing the full game as yet. Not even Just Adventure.
I wanted GAMEBOOMERS to have the first full review and instructed G2 to send a review copy (I asummed they had past on the info to you).

Will you please post Inferno's name correctly? She does not post her name in all upper case letters. You and FABLE just don't seem to be able to get that right.
I'm also not seeing an apology issued to Inferno on this thread. But I still see the posts that question her integrity.

Just adding my two-bits, for what it's worth; I won't buy a game until I've read a review and I also check the rating score given by the reviewer.
I feel I've been insulted also, since I do rely on hints and walkthroughs to get through a game when I'm really stuck. It does not take away the enjoyment I get out of a game.

MSTUDIOS, I think you've tried to apologize in your own way, but just doesn't cut it with me; I will not buy your game.
My personal feeling is that you/Fable came here with full intent to manipulate/control Gameboomers.

I'm really glad I read this thread; what an eyeopener.

"I apologise for any ill feeling," I posted this about 12 posts up. As well as sending Inferno a private email.
