How is it xenophobia if i point out that most reviewers are from western countries while japanese reviewers are absent like Famitsu?
There were quite a lot of people in this thread who openly said they are going to cancel their pre-order or prospone the purchase. So its clearly a lot of people do listen to these reviewers, western reviewers.
You have long since displayed a spiteful attitude towards most Western games and devs, favored Japanese games, devs, pubs and systems easily over anything Western, that type of attitude towards a different side of the world is a case of xenophobia. I've yet to find anyone else on this forum who displays the exact same attitude and behaviour as you towards the entire Western world.
If there are no Japanese reviews for the Japanese game then simply blame those people, not the West, don't even involve the West in something that has to do with Japan getting their reviews out and their shit together.
Listening to a few reviews alone isn't what you should be basing your purchase on entirely, I go by extensive (not shown just by trailers) gameplay footage, price points, all sorts of reviews, not just only the big sites, I go by certain youtube reviews as well since they tend to go in depth to places that big reviewers tend to skip. I basically do my own research before buying a game, big name reviews alone don't even begin to suffice, so those relying only on meta can do what they do but personal research and using more sources of input are better than one source.
Also some people here have decided to cancel their *pre-order*, that isn't to directly say they will never ever buy the game and even then this forum is but a very tiny fraction of people who would/wouldn't buy the game vs those outside this site around the world.
