But how has that anything to do with Japanese reviewers being absent from Metacrtic which is discriminatory? I am pretty sure if Famitsu and other japanese reviewers could give their review they would, but they cant just as you dont see any other none western country im metacritic.

Do you see for example reviews from latin america, africa, arabic world, former soviet union, china, korea or other parts in asia on metacritic? Damn what a coincedence, they all cant get their shit together unlike the mighty west, yeah sure.

Look also at Snoopys comment and you call me here the most xenophobic and spitefull person on this site?

Ruler you can try a mirror copy+paste argument all you want but it's not going to shield yourself from your xenophobic behaviour.

I actually like Japanese games and Western, I love anime and western cartoons as well as loving both cultures, all you've done is show contempt for one side while constantly loving and defending the other. Also if you'd studied history you'd also know why the West have OS control and why they even got therte in the frist place, look where the computer, internet and OS booms came from and you'll see the picture.

That's up to Famitsu to chuck out their reviews, not the West, that has nothing to do with the West what so ever, that is all on Famitsu themselves.

Oh how quaint you're using other countries to back up your fave, I can't wait to see that same example used for ltierally every other argument of yours inf avor of Japan in the future, in fact I can't wait for some threads based enitely on Africa as well as the other continents around the world.

You are Xenophobic through and through, trying to bounce an argument back towards the other isn't going to change that.

Again where i am xenophobic if i love japanese games? Like i said to an other member previously if all i would care and play is american games no one would care or accuse me of being biased, but for some reason japanese games stand out to you here and it is consired weird by other members?

No this statement is wrong, the West has no total controll of OS and computer technology, America does. And its pretty common now that in the same area mostly asians are working now by the way.

If this all would be Famitsus fault and japanese reviewers you would at least see other none western reviewers on metacritic of the regions i have mentioned previously. Its pretty unlikely that almost everyone not in the west refuses to take part in metacritic. Its more likely that gamespot has rules in place and chooses who ever they want.

Even other western sites are left out. For example the german sites like 4players who particapte on metacirtic are very unpopular while the most popular and most sold magazines and viewed review sites like Gamestar, Computer Bild, PC games and Maniac are left out on metacritic.

 Yeah if i see an african devoloped game and it gets bad reviews i will point that out. I think there was an african VGchartz user here who has an indie project

Just looking at the game you can tell it's a generic budget title. Probably got the score it deserved, but I haven't played it, and never will, so take my opinion with a grain of salt. Tokyo Mirage Sessions looks a lot better visually and that's on vastly inferior hardware. I doubt there was any (or much) bias against Japanese games or jrpgs... Fire Emblem Fates scored 88% and Tokyo Mirage Sessions scored 82%.

Instead of taking your opinion with a grain of salt I took it as invaild.



I gave the game a 7/10.
The problem so far, i'm only 3 hours in, are that the "open" world that I feel on this planet feels more like corridors.
Secondly I know a lot of star Ocean games start off like this, but I'd like to start off in a Sci Fi area, and not a fantasy one X_X.
Third the characters are really REALLY boring. All of them have like no personality so far, and the cutscenes aren't really even cutscenes so it takes away from the game. The combat is fun though and the game looks very pretty. Oh i just remembered the music is boring too.

I am talking of your Xenophobic behavour towards anything Western related, not towards Japanese games, you have warped what the definition actually means in that aspect it seems.

The West does have OS control, calling it "just America" is just showing the Xenophobia because the US is in fact part of the Western world, no need to single them out when other OS's in the past have spawned across various parts of the Western world, they may not be anywhere as popular as Windows or Mac but they do exist. Mostly asians working on a Western OS seems warped if anything, unless you want to go entirely with the "made in CHina" arguement, welcome to knowing that China makes a lot of the world's goods, that has been a thing for decades if not longer, but CHina don't design or code the OS, if they did it would certainly show very easily. 

What's to stop Japanese reviews, channels or hell anything over there from choosing what they want to show?, why has it got to be just the US?, why do you have this amazing facination with pinning everything on the US of A?. (likely to make the mirror argument "why you got to blame Japan?", does not a good argument make).

You see what you choose to see and pick it out to make some argument, just like you did with Skyrim because PC players got a good deal, I've never seen you make articles or threads when PC gets a shit deal and how you want to bring it to light without making it sound like it's not worth giving a shit about. 



Step right up come on in, feel the buzz in your veins, I'm like an chemical electrical right into your brain and I'm the one who killed the Radio, soon you'll all see

So pay up motherfuckers you belong to "V"

You pick and choose the argument all the time just like in this post constantley going personal and using other threads to derail the argument, now its about PC Gaming again. Why should i care about PC gaming? I am not a PC gamer so why should i cry if they get shafted over in some instances? You wont see me complaining about it or using it as an argument for console gaming like a lot of other PC gamers did if console gamers getting shafted.

You certaintly wouldnt have made a thread complaining that bethesda doesnt give console owners skyriam remaster for free, no one would except for me. And where did i said they should take your toy away? I just said they should give console gamers the same treatment who bought it digitally on PS360.


Sorry but i dont like this statement that because the US is considered western that makes the Dutch, German or Italian somehow equal and benefitors  in these Spheres which are dominated by the US. Its clearly that Europe for example has nothing to say anymore when it comes to the IT and OS markets less than Japan even. And i dont think being delusional about it and thinking its okay as the US is western wont help the situation but will make it even worse for europe and other western countries. And the US is becoming more and more a multicultural country and less western (European) the demographics show. And what has china to do with anything?

Like i said so many times Japanese reviewers arent allowed on Metacritic. And yes there are reviews in japan, like Famitsu which gives their scores weekley but unfortainly gamers here and in other sites dont care about them. 



Around the Network

At the very least there should be a much larger number of Japanese review sites represented on MC than there are, as Japan is such a crucial area of the world for gaming. The ratio of Japanese games to Western games (US/Canda) is much closer than the ratio of Japanese game review sites to Western game review sites.



Lube Me Up

I'll be honest.

I completely forgot about this thread lmao

Anyways - updated thread title since the game is at a 60 meta rating.

Just completed the game took me 31hours level 86.
Absolutely loved the game.
Story is oke..ish
Characters are great loved them all (that fiore!!!)
Graphics are definitely "meh" but some parts look good.

The world is very very small the biggest disappointment!

Lots of quest but are the same.

Huge amount of different skills and ways to upgrade your characters.
Combat whas amazing!
