Can someone please explain to my why ABCnews.com already has a review for this game but Gamespot.com doesn't?! Gamespot is late to the review party....AGAIN.

Thanks for the heads-up. I just came back from vacation and I'm almost afraid to turn the game on. Not sure what condition my survivors will be in. The other day, I turned the game off for only a couple hours, but when I came back I got a message that one of my survivors had wandered off and was in trouble. He died 2 minutes later before I had a chance to figure out what was going on.
I love the game, but it seems unfair (and disappointing) that all of your hard work can be completely undone while you're not even playing! I understand that Undead Labs is trying to make the game challenging and create tension, but it seems like this part of the game could have been better implemented, or at least explained.
I've heard that this game continues to play even when turned off. I'm gonna be out of town for almost a week. What should I expect to happen while I'm gone? Will my entire home base be decimated and abandoned or will I just have to re-stock a few supplies?
So, I set up an online association league with injuries turned OFF and have been playing for over a month now. But last night my starting power forward, Elton Brand, got injured on a play!!! Even the in-game announcers aknowledged that there was an "injury on the floor". Elton got subbed out automatically for a couple plays. Injuries have been turned off all season long!!! WTF is going on with this game??!!
I just played an entire playoff series in an online association, and both me and my opponent shot almost 60% for the series....on Superstar difficulty!!! I knew the defensive AI was bad, but is it getting worse? It's nearly impossible to force players into bad shots because they still hit almost everything!!! Seems like the only way to play defense is to get steals, but nothing else seems to work.
I'm not sure why, but every year the Gamespot review of the NBA 2K games gets later and later. I always like to read the reviews for this game each year so that I know what has OR hasn't been improved since the previous year. But the gamespot review often comes several days AFTER the game is released. NBA 2K13 was released 6 days ago and still no review. When it does come out, I hope it's worth it.
I just bought a PSP for pretty much the same reason. Work gets pretty hectic and I needed something that I could creep away and do for 20 minutes to escape (usually hiding in a bathroom stall). I'm pretty impressed and amazed at how good the games look on this little thing!
My son just turned 2 years old the other day and it does kinda scare me to think of the crap he's going to be subject to later, especially when he's a teenager. I'm gonna be strict but fair. My little cousin has been playing games like GTA and Hitman since he was 4 years old! That's not gonna be my son.
