Yosumin is that awesome puzzle game, right?

Famitsu WHAT THE FUCK...
Seriously the ONLY POSSIBLE way to fuck Yosumin up, is basically to not have Yosumin on the screen.

10/10/10/10 in Famitsu, or else confirmed sham. Guess it's confirmed sham Famitsu (everyone should know this though since forever)

I wonder if copious amounts of alcohol was involved with these reviews.

Irregardless, MP sounds like it's worth getting
cheap

Now where's the news!

This is a fucking outrage.

I hate puzzle games... Yet I played Yosumin for like 6 hours one night! It's fucking brilliant!

When I first read your post I was like, "Puzzle games lolz, I'll try it for a sec anyway."

Then 6 hours later I was like... :O

I lost sleep because of that game.

I hope to God it has a US release so I can spread the love to my friends.

Anyone who hasn't already experience Yosumin, you can just bypass Famitsu failure and go to automatic win in THIS THREAD. Let Yosumin consume your soul.

Eteric Rice: Actually I don't really think it matters if this gets a US release, 'cause I can't imagine there'd be any real language barrier in a puzzle game.

Well, it is a pretty signifigant update you know.
Renbu? You know, when I tried the demo, I didn't even know how to fight properly. After years of Musou games. "Why does triangle do the same move, even when I try to string it with square?" I felt like a newbie.

Everything else seemed the same, though.

Oh, is there any new Afterschool Boy (Shenmue DS) info?

Only when people agree to the score.
Hell, I think they're not reliable even when I do agree with their score. Like, Super Mario Galaxy is a 38 or a 39... that's a great score for the game, who can disagree? But it's from Famitsu, so it's worthless.

I don't understand something. I thought Famitsu's reviews were considered pretty reliable and vigorous. Was I wrong?
Play Yosumin and tell me it's only worth 7/8/8/7...

Look me in the eye and say it.
