Maybe there'll be fanpatch to the new steins gate's, in like 5 years.

Detective Conan is awesome lol.



Go Tomb Raider!

Photo Kano Kiss = BioShock Infinite.

Two 10's for PhotoKano?  Wth. I thought it was the nichest of okatuest of games.  Pleased to see that though, certainly not going to hurt the game's sales.

Labyrinth Cross Blood Infinity scored lower than I was hoping. I was pleased when Experience Inc. got such stellar sales from Demon Gaze. Was hoping they'd bring it again; but I suppose this is just a port of a port.

I have no idea what those other two Vita games are. Had to consult your Japan games thread to find out they were both adventure titles; and the youtube trailers tell me even less than that.

Tomb Raider scored pretty well for itself; Bioshock too. G&W and Mugen Souls seem on the lower end of Famitsu's scale, though.

Finally, holy hell some 360 games!

They will rue using that cover for BioShock Infinite. If they had slapped Elizabeth on it in the pose from the Photo Kano one, they'd sell twice as many copies. (So, 40k instead of 20k.)

well if you want to delve in the past. FFXIII-2 got a perfect score (I love this game, but to argue that it deserves it is a bit silly haha), RE6 got a 39/40. They seem to rate most "good" popular games really high with little differentiation between good, great and classic games. Sources west suffer from this too, but Famitsu's imo the worst I've seen at doing this.

I wonder how much if they just switched out sam (lara's japanese friend in tomb raider), for like hatsune miku how much the sales would differentiate. Or if SE, put yuna and her Japanese VA in tomb raider. Best marketing idea ever!

Afterall sam does where white dress
