Looking like a 78 - 80 when all is done then I guess.

The user reviews on the other hand, oh boy. Get ready for the firebombing.

I wonder how the user reviews will be compared to Death Stranding, which stands, as of now, at a 6.4 user rating.

Looks like the anti-game freak movement had hardly any impact as it's scored like any other Pokemon game.

Is this a surprise? The score shouldn't be impacted by a movement, though perhaps the cause of that movement, being the game's flaws which don't disappear because it reviewed and sells well.

Anyone who thought this was gonna get less than 80 didn't do their research. Let's Go just showed us how low reviewers set the bar for Pokemon, and despite it's issue, Sw/Sh is still objectively superior so of course it'd score the same or better. Similarly, the masses have already proven they're fine paying more for less with Let's Go, so Sw/Sh can be expected to sell +10 million as well.



Movements tend to have an impact. In this case S/S is being received well and will sell millions. There was no movement. Don't confuse a legitimate movement with a bunch of internet whiny itches.

I also love the behavior of all the S/S haters.

Step 1: Trash the game relentlessly for months on end

Step 2: Last minute predict a good Metascore that is completely out of alignment with months worth of complaining

Step 3: Buy the game, but make excuses for doing so

Firebombing reviews has to be one of the most childish acts I've seen. People need to grow up.

Metacritic, and just about everywhere else people can rate something, have always been 0s and 10s mixed at various proportions. And there will always be kids online, and nerds who care about metacritic scores for their own dick-wagging contests.

So, not going to happen.

(Of course, to ask what came first: hate culture which distributes 0s and cares for nothing else, or drone culture which distributes 10s and silences criticisms, is a question for the ages).

Only 19 scores so far? They REALLY choose how to send reviews copy to.
The score can still go a lot higher or lower, but it doubt it.
I think like most games it'll fall 2 or 3 points in the go, which would make my prediction really good
But we'll see it.

Always tend to happens around this year,  Why no review for pokemon yet? Why no review for Shenmue 3 yet? Why no review for WRC 8 yet why no review for Jedi fallen order yet?

The petition to the white house to ban the game was worse.

"Internet whiny itches" he says while whining because he can't accept that people who don't agree with him can still have valid points and criticisms.

I've been saying this game will sell and review well since Let's Go, and I didn't buy that game nor will I buy this one so r.i.p. that generalization. Your behavior is what's lovely, being so utterly irrational for the sake of defending a corporation that gives no shits about you. As I've pointed out so many times, you gain fucking nothing from defending, but you can gain a better product through criticism.

You've proven your irrationality already, but eh I'm gracing you with this serious response moreso for everyone else to read, that's my excuse. xD



Regardless of the reviews, it will still sell 15-25 million lifetime. Maybe more. And this isn't something massive budget game with a ton of hard to make cinematic scenes, I'm sure Pokemon is one of the most profitable series of games ever because of how low budget it is and how much it sells. They could get a 20 metacritic and they will laugh their way to the bank before making the next one and selling a buttload once again. There are certainties in life:

We have taxes.
Hillary Clinton is always maybe, possibly running for President.
Howard Dean will achieve his dream to visit all the listed states in his fiery speech.
Epstein didn't kill himself.
Pokemon will sell millions each time.

My stance for this game (and any other game) is to reserve final judgement until I personally play the game.  I don't defend nor attack anything that I haven't played.  Sorry if you find that "irrational."  Can't help you there.
