And what do you know about the japanese reception? the famitsu score?? Because there are a bunch of othr sites in japan where the game has been highly praised, and if you go by sales or famitsu, I let you know that XC was only 2 points above (34 vs 36) and it sold about the same on a console with way more sales, so you are getting the "japanese reception" out of your ass, with this japanese reception the previous one had a 92.

I would assume by Japanese Reception he's talking about user scores such as these: 

http://www.amazon.co.jp/s/ref=nb_sb_noss/376-5743841-6725449?__mk_ja_JP=%E3%82%AB%E3%82%BF%E3%82%AB%E3%83%8A&url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=Xenoblade

with XCX getting 3 and a half stars compared to XC's 4 and a half.  I don't personally put much weight in user reviews but I figure if one is going to talk about general consumer reception this is one of the few metrics.  

Devil's Third must be one good game then.

Probably FF fanboys scoring the game down.

Yes and they all hate until dawn

I don't see any reason that FF Fanboys would be more of a problem now than they were for the previous Xenoblade.  

I'm not saying that this means XCXis worse than XC but in the discussion of "Will XCX score as high as XC?" and people are saying that there's no question that it will score above a 9, I think there are reasonable points to be made that it might not.  

Ok, then I'll start using userscores  to trash all PS4 and xbone games. ;)

Of coure it's not likely going to be above 90% because most games fail to reach that score. LBP3 really isn't any worse than the first, but the score sure is.


If you want to use userscores in a discussion about how you think different games will do in metacritic go ahead.  I personally don't see that as "trashing".

I would agree that it's unlikely to go above 90%, and the discussion here is whether or not it will go to 90 or above and beat Runbow.  Some say that obviously it will because the previous game did and this one looks even better,  to which th counter goes that the reception from Japan has not been as good which is the only region to be playing the game currently.  That's all the discussion is, nothing about whether or not XCX is a worse game than XC just about the general expected metacritc score and whether or not it'll beat Runbow.

 I agree with you, and my personal prediction for the game is an 88, wich is a very good score, but there is some people that is too sure about the game not being able to reach 90 or more than low 80´s just because they have seen that it has worse scores than the original on places  so reliable like Amazon.jp or Famitsu... that´s not really a good clue of what the critic performance in the west will be.



if you ask me, critics and gamers both tend to be dumb and I have no faith in either

so even though XCX should get around a 94-95 IMO, I think an 87-88 is more reasonable. why? not because the game is bad, but because it's A) different from Xenoblade Chronicles and B) a well-designed hardcore game, and people who played the first one and expect it to be similar won't like A), and people who aren't hardcore gamers or don't like deep, well-designed games won't like B (if you think that doesn't make sense, you're wrong; even though grinding is considered poor game design, some people don't like it. a game having deep mechanics and having extras that push your knowledge of those mechanics is often regarded as just being "too hard" if the player can't master those mechanics; thus because a review is usually just someone's opinion and contains little to no objective analysis of the game, it might get bad reviews)

*shrugs*

tl;dr gaming industry stinks and so do review scores, a lot of the time :

Runbow is still irrelevant, not sure what you're trying to argue here.

Journey, a 2-hour long indie game from last-gen, is the second highest rated PS4 game of the year. Big whoop.

The Swapper is the second highest rated game ever on the xbox one.


This basically says it all.

Well runbow has only got 7 reviews so a couple of bad ones could bring it down a bit. And Mario Maker could still jump up to 89 with a few more good reviews.
I'm going for Xenoblade though. I think that'll hit 90-92. Around the same as the first maybe. Perhaps a bit lower. Maybe 90.



It's good to see good indies coming for the wii u, but yea, this would be odd as f***. I wouldn't change Splatoon/SMM for that. Scores for indies are really out of control.

At the end, i don't think the prediction will come true, for this reasons:
1- Now that the game is getting attention, it will get more reviews and the score is going down
2- The game actually have some technical hiccups here and there
3- Fast Racing Neo
4- XCX



It's 85 now because of two 60 reviews, so I don't think it has any chance of being the highest rated Nintendo game this year. XCX should easily beat that.



aint it a bit of an exageratin. runbow as the best games is a big laugh. however i do like wii u. and i think the best will be zelda no doubt

I have a strange feeling it won't.
