That right there is a fine example of review bombing.
The revised Steam review plan is gonna come in handy.
Not really. I mean, the onus is going to be entirely on the person viewing the reviews to go look at some chart, see that it's gotten a lot of terrible reviews just recently, and then interpret that to mean that it's being review bombed for some reason unrelated to the actual game itself, which in itself is going to require you are aware of what's going on with the game and everything around it.
How many are going to do that, or magically come to the right conclusion? I mean, if you don't know anything about Fallout 4, how do you know that this is because of some backlash over their shitty creators' club, rather than a terrible patch they released? It's going to require legwork on the part of the person viewing that data to come to the right conclusion.
I mean, I guess it beats them doing absolutely nothing, but as far as Valve is concerned, this is the closest they can get to doing absolutely nothing while pretending they're doing something. They'd make absolutely fantastic politicians.
