    Senran Kagura, next week your boobs belong to me.

  • Haku_Luvs_You

    Shinovi Versus!!! 32/40 not a bad score. Also Professor Layton did pretty well, I like those games too :)

  • Kou

    Oh wow I didn’t know Sharin no Kuni was coming out for PS3. That was a realllly good VN.

  • There’s a new Touch Detective on 3DS? Since when? And I want it.

  • almostautumn

    I’m genuinely put off by the scores for Macross/Senran. I know 32/40 is an excellent score— but it also seems very low for two games that I was absolutely certain would be aces throughout.

    • DrForbidden

      For Famitsu, that’s actually an average score. ‘Excellent’ scores are generally 36 and above, while ‘bad’ scores are around 26 and below. Doesn’t really matter to me. I’m still gonna play the hell out of SK.

    • Budgiecat

      Aces for me would be a full fledged flat out epic RPG which means fully realized 3D rendered pilots that you can control in a true RPG world like Mass Effect or something. Not just they typical static 2D images. Also I want a Legend of Galactic Heroes game like that.

  • Eclipse

    Sweet, I’ve been looking forward to Senran Kagura & Shining Ark ever since they were announced, so I’m glad they both got great scores.

  • Lenne

    Can’t wait for DW8 to arrive on my doorstep soon.

  • fyi1191

    Great, more backlogs for me.

  • i’m amazed risen 2 got dat high o’ a score.

  • PrinceHeir
