Awesome for LBP!

Ouch at TF6, but I don't think any of those type of games score well do they? Still looking forward to my copy.

GTA4 is out on both consoles? Wonder how well this one will do...

West developed Games getting awesome scores in Japan. Hooray....
Famitsu gives bonus points out of respect. They probably don't know how to judge Western games, so they just go by what they hear, and how big the franchise is.

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

Hrm.
What's with the extended crotch shot? Not only once, but twice.... weird.
Also, I hope that's beta footage in the trailer. Given how awesome many other Wiiware titles look, they're gonna have a tough time with graphics like that. Same goes for the music. Sure, it's tracked, but the instruments sound cheap. Not a fan of the artwork too, and the magic (/special attack?) system looks kinda strange.
Oh well. We shall see.

why does famitsu hate shooters?
Basically, no revenue for the mag:
- no advertising
- no guides, either in the mag, or separately published
- very small audience, so not many shooter fans to buy the mag

Famitsu reviews are really tightly matched to their business model. A lot of people take them much more seriously than they deserve to be taken.

Looks like GTAIV could be a front-runner for GOTY08!
I wonder which will sell more, out of GTA and LBP, in Japan -- it's gonna be a close thing.
GTA is a funny beast...it has excellent production values, a compelling story, a great soundtrack, some of the best dialogue in a game, a huge gameworld and some variety of stuff to do...but apart from actually having improved graphics it really addresses none of the flaws that previous games had...I am still scratching my head over this one

Is this a SE game? I never heard of this one.
IIRC, that would be the DS version of the Chocobo Dungeon game for the Wii. There's another Chocobo Final Fantasy Fables game for the DS coming, but I don't think it's out yet.

Yes, it's a sequel to Chocobo Tales.

Oh, my bad! I got it the other way round :x

Oh. You mean the one where Chocobo has jobs/classes? or the one with tons of mini-games?

Just my opinion, but there's no way GTAIV deserves a 39/40. Way too many flaws.

But that discussion's been done to death. For now, I'll just snicker at Famitsu and every other publication which gave it near perfect (or, in some cases, perfect) scores.

I'm actually amused by the PS3's garbage can game. Seriously.

The name is Gomibako for PSN. What is the premise for this game? Are you some sort of public worker, a recycler nut, some tetris with garbage?

Kemko was for some reason being very shy about that game at TGS. I tried to take pictures of the section of their booth showing off the game and got a "No press" said to me politely.
