    nice!!! very exited for this game.

  • Eclipse

    I’m sure MGR: Revengeance is deserving of that score (It’s Platinum, after all!).
    One more week to go !

  • Pyrofrost

    It seems Magi is deemed very average.
    No matter, I am still hoping for a localization of it. I’d really like to try that game ^_^

    • Solomon_Kano

      Me too. I just recently started watching the anime and I’m really liking it, so it’d be nice to see the game make it over here.

      • Pyrofrost

        I been reading the manga myself, I’m loving it ^_^

        • Solomon_Kano

          A friend suggested I read the manga and I’m tempted, but A-1’s just done such a lovely job animating it that I can’t convince myself to read it haha.

          • Anime10121

            Agreed, surprisingly, its become my favorite anime so far this year!

            • Solomon_Kano

              Mine as well.

              Unrelated question: how come you don’t post on Sili anymore?

              • Anime10121

                Oh trust me, its not that I dont post there anymore, as a matter of fact, I did a few times this week. Its just that real life issues are kinda keeping me busy, so I dont have anywhere near as much time on my hands unfortunately. I dont know if you saw the post or not (I posted it to both Sili and Gematsu, the two sites I comment on the most,), but my mom’s been in the hospital/rehab center since October because of multiple blood clots to the brain (which thankfully surgeries were successful at removing). We almost lost her, and I still honestly dont know if she’ll ever be back anywhere near her usual self when her rehab/insurance is used all the way up.

                That + at my job ive obtained a small promotion to a supervisory position and life’s become a little hectic/stressful as all heck these last few months. I just recently (about a month or so ago) started posting anywhere again, because for a while, I wasnt posting at all. But Im trying to get back into the routines I used to have, as it kinda helps put my mind at ease. I’m trying to get back to posting as much as I used to, but have just been kinda busy as all heck :(

                I’ve never really had a bad experience at either site, so it has nothing to do with that or their communities, Its just life issues unfortunately :(

                • Solomon_Kano

                  Oh wow. I guess I missed that. I posted sporadically for a while, so I probably wasn’t around.

                  I’m terribly sorry to hear that about your mom, man. I’m sure it means little from a random internet guy, but I really hope things get better for your family.

                  Congratulations on your promotion though!

                  Well, I can certainly understand life issues popping up. Don’t worry about it, man. Work through it and whenever you’ve got the time, we’ll be around. I just wanted to be sure ya didn’t leave us! We’ve had some folks just up and disappear, so it’s good to hear that you’re still around in spite of it all.

                  Good luck to you and your family, man!

                  • Anime10121

                    Thanks man! The sentiment is very much appreciated. And yeah, I’ll probably never just up and leave for good, gaming and its community, are as many times fun and engaging, as they are soothing and relaxing.

                    These communities (Sili and Gematsu) are awesome, so i dont think I’ll ever just up and disappear :)

                    • Solomon_Kano

                      That’s good to hear, man. See ya around, then!

                • I hope her health has been improving.

                  • Anime10121

                    It has although unfortunately it seems to be very slightly, still unable to eat or swallow foods on her own, and memory seems to come and go, but fortunately, she does seem to remember our names and who we are. On the plus though, she is breathing without the trachea now :)

                    • I’m glad she is improving, even if the improvements are small. Gotta take the small victories when life gives them to you.

                      Stay positive man. /brohug ^^

  • As expected. i’m happy to see reviewers agree

  • z_merquise

    Review scores for Metal Gear Rising looks great but the important part of every review are the pros, cons and other details of a game. That’s the part I wanted to know for this game.
    I hope someone can share it if anyone had a copy of this issue.

  • PrinceHeir

    Metal Gear Rising 39/40!!!!!
