There is also an interview with Ted Price that discusses 1080p, the 360, PS3 bad press and transitioning from PS2 to PS3 development

Yeah I was just adding to your oops.

Next time spend more time on gameplay, fatalities and porting to 360 and less time on single player mode and mk kart.

How does Guitar Hero 2 get a 10? It's basically the same as the first one with different songs and a practice mode that should have already been there.

I know EGM has Halo 3, but I seriously cannot wait for the next OPM. They always have the best features, interviews and layouts around.

And for some reason, I always have to read John Davison's monthly rantings.

Unless the original Lumines is difficult to find (which it isn't), I don't think there's any reason to rate the game higher, if it doesn't add much and people who never played it can just go out and get the original for less.

100 skins isn't much? We don't need anything new gameplay wise for Lumines, we just want more skins. A lot of the 100 skins must be really bad if it got a 6.

Well if that's all you need you'll probably be happy with it. From the start its sounded like a repackaging of the original but with a bunch of new songs.

good point I guess. the 6 just makes it seem like a bad game to me I guess, when its really just not a "new" game. do re-released classic games that are just direct ports ever get rated less than they were orginally?

Yeah, quite often, I think. Reviewers sometimes get pissy about ports/re-releases.

Hence why reviews are subjective. :D

Anyway, I just read the "review" (and I use that term rather loosely) of Tales of the Abyss. First of all, it's only about 300 words long. Three paragraphs are about how the beginning of the game is super cliche and the main character is a "metrosexual amnesiac." Then, there is a short blurb about how the story picks up after 10 hours, but the graphics are ugly, the framerate on the world map is choppy, the music is uninspired, and the combat system is too frenzied to allow for real tactics.

I don't really know what to say about it. They say it took about 12 hours to complete but they found significant replay value (in the form of additional weapons and completing the story). They said they had minor complaints, mostly with the thin story and lack of online co-op. Also, they found the enemy variety lacking (there is a large variety of enemies, but you mostly encounter minor variations of the same enemy). Other than that, the review is really positive as the reviewer walks you threw a few minutes of the game. The reviewer says he was most impressed by the game's "very topmost level design. I'm talking about basic pacing, balance, sound design--that sort of thing."

One thing I hadn't heard about before:
"Beyond this, though, is the game's website, which features an extensive timeline of events leading up to the game. And furthermore, the game itself will offer clues that can be used to explore the website more thoroughly. It's an interesting experiment, employing an element of the alternate-reality game (like the I Love Bees ARG designed to promote Halo 2) to make sense of the main story of the game itself."
