Lock if old.

UPDATE: Here are a few notes from the reviews thanks to Takao.
If you want more than scores, here's some meaningless text:

SFV Famitsu review
-Easy controls compared to most recent fighting games
-Many competing moments outside of execution
-V Triggers help giving chara individualities & easy to know decisive points
-Single player contents not enough
-A reviewer worries that because of simple system & controls, hi-level fights might not be a show of skills.
Setsuna Famitsu review
-Embodiment of the concept of good ol' RPG. Graphics have deep flavor, sad story, piano BGM help bring atmosphere
-Battles are steadily interesting
-They don't really feel anything originally new
-Stone customization & Strategic element in Setsuna system are good
-Too much loading in towns, a bit troublesome
-Takes about 20-25 hours to clear
AoT game Famitsu review
-3D battles represented well in game
-Speed sense different from other games with wire hooks
-Able to play anime 1st season + game-original story is good
-Camp Mode is like being made from a template
-3D action can be done with simple controls
-There's a sense of co-op with AI allies
-A critic says beating titans are almost same all time so easy to get bored, wishes more official story covered.
-25-30 hours for clearing Attack Mode (story), infinite replay value

EDIT: On another news apparently Capcom has done some sort of sorcery on the game's file size.

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

They needed Sony to fund the game so i guess the marketing budget isnt that high.

been following games for a long time and famitsu's reviews never made any sense - is this a good score? a bad one?

i'll wait for American publications to take a crack at it

On a side note Attack on Titan scored 34 is that good on their scale?
The way I see it, 36 and above is a great game. 32-35 is good. 30-31 is okay. 29 and below is not worth your time. Keep in mind this is the same magazine that gave Final Fantasy XIII-2 a perfect score

Edit: although it's still worth to actually read the review as they do have worthwhile insight, regardless of what the final score may be

I guess that's a good score or something. Really hard for me to take Famitsu scores for good or bad when tied to marketing dollars.

Been with GAF over a decade and, yeah, I had have come to see Famitsu scores as practically not worth much as I first thought and most often might as well be random points assigned by a dart board.

It's probably going to have a similar size update like they did with the beta implementations or that size is wrong or maybe it's right idk

Wonder if he got bopped online like that other guy

SF4 was 3.4gb initially or something I believe. That might've been MVC3 though. SSF4 was 6gb before AE and Ultra, so...it's not that surprising given the art style, the lack of story mode cutscenes and such, which are coming later.

Weird to see another Famitsu score thread on NeoGAF, didn't we have one recently for a different game? Are Famitsu scores suddenly relevant again?

Oh yeah definitely gained a lot more from the translated blurb. Seems like the game turned out decent enough may pick it up down the line.
