Should probably point out that just because EDGE are previewing Last Story that shouldn't be taken as a sign that it is any likelier to be localised.

Super Scribblenauts does seem strangely low.

Deadly Premonition a 7! Wow, I need to play this game now. Got to judge it for myself, is it out this Friday in the UK?

Ouch at that Fallout review i was going to get it today but got Vanquish instead.

A wise decision i think.

To be expected really. Obsidian are great designers but absolutely diabolical developers.

Anyway, I got the issue in the post and the Dungeon Keeper 2 feature was great. I had forgotten how cool that game was.

Ok.

Ouch.

An EDGE 6 is still above average. Given the game's technical failings I think they have been extremely generous. The review text is quite damning.

Glad that Costume Quest was understood by Edge. :D Was hoping they'd review & pan Comic Jumper, but you can't have everything.


What format is Zettai Zetsumei toshi 4 - still PS3 only?

They have an interview with Schafer and Tasha Harris, creative director of the game.

Listed as PS3
 

ULTROS!

People seem to like me because I am polite and I am rarely late. I like to eat ice cream and I really enjoy a nice pair of slacks.

Gametrailers, Eurogamer and Edge all gave Vanquish great reviews and scores. I was about to skip it, seems like its an unavoidable purchase.

Will buy after Fable 3 though.

Edge sometimes previews and reviews import games that never make it over IIRC.

Aw. I hope Agetec localizes it though.

Hooray for Deadly Premonition. It's the little game that could.

I just completed 1000 gamerscore on it the other night. :D

Probably because they think it isn't good.

It has a pretty high score too (in Edge's standard).

Kinda disappointed at the score for The Ball, but I would have never expected that game to review great. I bought a copy though to support Tripwire.

First release of a UDK title. First title Tripwire has published which they didn't develop. Releasing on steam next week. First-person puzzler/action type thingy.

played it and watched someone else play it at PAX this year; it looked interesting if not a little shallow. basic setup is you're pushing a gigantic, metal, ancient looking ball around a temple and use it to solve puzzles as well as for combat (via puzzles) and all of this via first-person.

i'm sure the puzzles get quite complicated and precise, but it seemed like something i'd spend maybe 30-60 minutes playing and then never touch again.

does anyone else absolutely hate the layout of their site? i can't stand that the main content i'm there to view is relegated to almost a third of the overall width of the site. it makes the articles look longer than they are.
