It has to be said : Where are THE RUMOURS ???

Didn't 1up.com already post most of this month's rumours?

Also SMG was reviewed by Shane, Jeremy and Shoe.
They have reviewed it but it didn't make the issue.

Jeremy's score is a 9.5

Listening to Shoe and Shane on the EGM Live.. their scores will be very similar to that.

It's 1Up/EGM. They like to take off points for stupid shit. 8.5 is respectable though. I fully expect 8.0-8.5 to be on the lower end of the spectrum.

I like how Blacksite Area 51 and Timeshift got around the same scores. A match made in mediocrity.

It's nice to see such good scores for Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. This is one of the best SRPGs ever made; Intelligent Systems has outdone themselves and it is hard to see how they'll top this masterpiece.

So Uncharted's getting an 8.5 from 1up I presume? I guess that's the highest they're gonna score Sony games this gen.

The consistency of the Uncharted scores actually make me feel a lot more comfortable about picking it up. Can't wait. :D

Dude, you've said countless times that only Edge and Eurogamer scores count! These don't even matter to you! Stop stirring the pot! ;)

Why no galaxy's review? Anyone else notice egm has been late with alot of big game reviews lately? Uncharted is making it harder for me to resist getting a PS3 until MGS4.

Shane gave Heavenly Sword a 9.

I'm speaking for skip here but I'm pretty sure it's because Nintendo didn't give them Galaxy in time.

Fire Emblem, companions walk
The endless path together.

In the wavering shadow of spite,
Our home is faced by the oncoming spear,
Engulfed in flames.

I keep that unforgettable day in my heart
And now rise up together with my companions.

Fire Emblem, our bond shall be never broken.

We hold fast to protect tomorrow
And the one who awaits our return.

Fire Emblem, light gathers on the flag we unfurl.

Fire Emblem, we gaze upon the multitude of stars,
Gripping our blades.

If we do not bring light to the darkness in these lands,
The shooting stars will soar over a wasteland.

Fire Emblem, on whom does the morning sun shine
As she climbs over the edge of battle?

TimeShift will sell I think. They've been advertising it like a big Holiday title and the TV trailers are actually badass.

People will buy it. Stupid people, but people no less.

As for Area 51, well, it's a sequel of a pretty popular game. It'll see decent figures.

As much as I was hoping K&L to be the shit, I knew IO would drop the ball. Damn shame.

Yeah, exceeded expectations I guess. Way to go Naughty Dog, looks like it's the quality solid game we've been hoping for.

I'll wager your immortal soul that 1up gives Uncharted higher than a 7.

Mass Effect :)

Over a total of 30 points, there's two points between them..so there must be a very fine line between that :\ and :) ... :p

Great scores, I'm most looking forward to them both.

Didn't Ratchet already score higher?

I think Ratchet got 8.5, 9 and 9. The Uncharted reviews might be spot on, who knows. I'd say that judging by the demo the scores seem awfully generous, but then I'd have to start watching my back in my own camp.

I just want to know if it got docked based on a lack of MP so that I can bitch about that. It's my favorite bitching stone right now.

Seriously! Kane and Lynch has looked phoned in from Day 1. Must be something surprising in there.

Not enough repetition.

Also that Geo Wars score is quite high for what it is. I might have to call off my endless trolling of it

I wanted it to be really awesomesauce. I'm just overreacting. I'm sure I will still love it though.

The concept of the multiplayer is pretty interesting. At least it's different. I don't remember what was so great about it but...I remember reading it and being impressed.

K&L has some good story, good dialogue, and some really neat environments/setpieces.

not enough Lynch insanity, though.
