Didn't check that thread is some time. Looks like more low scores followed, but the meta is still almost 8.

What's the Splatoon post script? Is that just a footnote with "And since then, they added such and such, but splatfests didn't quite go according to plan at first"? Or is there more to it than that?

And Woolly World is almost as good as YI, even if it lacks its novelty.

Fair enough, it was 20 years ago, but still.

Yoshi destroyed.

I'm looking forward to see how Dark Souls III plays out. There were a lot of great additions to DSII, but I still feel there is room for improvement, and I want to see how the series can expand on current gen hardware.

Dont read too much into the 6 for Yoshi. The game is solid, super cute and some really good typical Nintendo level design. Basically if you like 2d Nintendo platformers you'll love it.

If you dont love them this is not the game that will convert you.

Splatoon 9, well deserved, phenomenal game.

Don't forget though that Edge use the full review scale, so a 6 from them is equivalent to at least a 7 from most other publications.

The fuck? Yoshi is not a 6 game imo, Kirby? Sure, but not Yoshi. The level-design never ceases to delight, it constantly introduces new elements. It may be a bit derivative in most areas, but it's a damn soluid platforming game. It's easily the best Yoshi game since the original Yoshi's Island.

Miyazaki was unhappy with the E3 leaks of Dark Souls III and it has made him less talkative. Project has not been his from the start, Dark Souls III began two years ago while he was working on Bloodborne. Miyazaki emphasises there is no strict team structure at From. He says it feels like a new team as people move about and are hired. Okano is handling day to day production while Miyazaki is handling world design and mechanics. He is working with Tanimura on level design. Miyazaki says "the world design is similar to Dark Souls or Bloodborne."

Miyazaki says having viewed fantasy from a different perspective in Bloodborne has given him a new appreciation for the setting and it may be what makes Dark Souls III unique.

Player feels agile, especially the back step. New attack mode called Ready Stance allows you to do new attacks, like a dual wielded spin that has a wind up animation. The demo could be from any part of the game but enemies approach alone or in small groups, from unexpected angles instead of large mobs.

Guy strikes me as incredibly modest and Nathan notes that he sometimes seems puzzled by his success. "I think players demand simple, interesting and worthy games. If the games I've directed or designed have met those demands, I've been very lucky... I want to make as many games as I can while my luck's in"

That is absolutely clear through out the article. He says something along the lines of wanting to make a sequel that reinforces or changes the things fans like, but never remove them.

Uh, I guess. It's just that he's basically just directed a Souls game, just after having made two Souls games, and now he's going back to make a new Souls game. Just seems like a weird comparison to make.

Because the subtle differences to outsiders are quite substantial to many fans. Plus "Souls director makes another Souls game" doesn't really strike me as a headline that will sell magazines.

I understand why he would be unhappy with the leaks, but honestly, they were very much necessary to make people excited. I know I wouldn't be nearly as excited as I am if all we had was the CGI trailer and people talking about a closed doors demo. That sun leaking screenshot made me more excited than anything else.

Miyazaki like the Lil B of the video game game. Won't be long before he's putting out 2, 3 a year.

9/10 for Splatoon seems about right, an instant classic with room for improvement. 9/10 for Yoshi's Island is...if Yoshi's Island isn't a 10 I don't know what is.

Even though a lot of people here don't care about Destiny, that 8 score is a definitely a very positive sign. Still won't want to pay $60 for that. I think I'm better off waiting for the Borderlands Handsome collection to drop to $30 and getting friends to buy that with me.
