I look forward to my postman bending the shit out of that beautiful cover, sigh.

Holy shit at Zelda's 10! Can't wait. I wasn't expecting a 9 for Horizon, that's fantastic. Ditto to Nioh's 9 and Torment's 8. As everyone's said, 2017 is off to a fantastic start with a lot of quality games.
Shit just got real. Also when you look at the history of Edge 10/10 scores, there are now 19, three of which are for Zelda games (Ocarina, Skyward and BotW), and Nintendo also has Mario 64 and Galaxy 1 and 2. Pretty great record. Wonder if Super Mario Odyssey will join the list.

I remember when EDGE had the first published Super Mario Galaxy 2 review and gave it a 10. I'm getting a feeling the floodgates are about to open again.
