Having a tough time choosing GOTY at this point between Demon's Souls and NSMB Wii. They're both so good for entirely different reasons.

Edge loves stirring the controversy, they thrive on it, and people will talk about their review scores much more than these.

Not everyone needs controversy to find entertainment from something.

Man, it looks so good hey. No sign of a publisher for the EU as yet either. Looking at the Mighty Boosh av I'm guessing you're in England too, where did you order yours from may I ask?

My parents are ordering mine from http://www.axelmusic.com/productDetails/730865001323 for my birthday and I'm in the UK.

I should get gamestm90 next week as well, great score for DS.

Best place to get it sent to Europe from is probably videogamesplus.ca - movietyme.com are a bit cheaper, but vg+ is faster in my experience.

Also, good to see another fantastic score for my GotY - has Demon's Souls even had a bad review yet? I rememeber Famitsu not liking it too much, but ever since then it's been nothing but positive reviews.

To be honest I think Games has surpassed Edge as the quality magazine a while ago.

As far as I remember the lowest score DS got was 8/10. Famitsu gave it lower scores but one of the reviewers gave it a 9 while the lowest was from a casual gaming reviewer. It wasn't that bad in the end.

GamesTM is also a pretty hefty magazine, as well. You actually feel like you're getting your monies worth.

Amount of content yes. But the quality of writing is school boy levels in comparison to Edge

Cheers for the advice on where to get Demons Souls fellas, someone else mentioned that videogamesplus.ca site to me the other day so think I'll go with them

If you look back at GamesTm's history of reviewing games from the movie tie in survival horror genre, then you will see a clear bias against the genre

Australia, but Play-Asia should still be fine to ship to England, I guess. They're super reliable, and have great prices in AU dollars, though I'm not sure what that means for the GBP.

this is the most consistently good magazine in the industry by far. those scores makes sense to me, and even though they don't use edgy words and sentences (see what i did here?) its absolutely great

and yes i agree with all those grades (to the ones i have played)

Yeah, was just reading it, my copy came just before we had to leave for the football. There's quite a few decent articles (Crackdown 2, Rare, 4A Games). Also one of my favourite covers in a long time.

I love me some Demon's Souls, but it had a paper thin story. I don't see how any publication could give it a 10/10.

*farms some more 4-3*

I think the fact RE DSC got the same score as NSMB Wii & L4D2 is certainly controversial since the game is nowhere near the quality of the latter two.

Doesn't look like it, though its currently pulling an 89. Probably would be a 90+ if the Gamervision 60 didn't come in a 15 points below the next lowest score.
