Update

  1. Voting on The Artful Escape is closed. Sorry, I had meant to send out reminders to people before the reviews came in, but the thread fell off my buddy and I forgot. The game is currently sitting on an 84 on metacritic with 17 reviews, though I will be tabulating the scores in about a week to give more critics a chance to post reviews, so the score could change some before scores are tabulated.

My predictions for The Artful Escape and Age of Empires haven't been put in on the front page.



...to avoid getting banned for inactivity, I may have to resort to comments that are of a lower overall quality and or beneath my moral standards.

Will get right on that.



Looking like The Artful Escape really blew away all of our expectations, if it stays at 84.

Damn I thought it might get rly good scores but was swayed by the lower scores people were guessing. Shoulda trusted my instincts lol at least I’m tied for the closest on that (no idea why this is all within a quote btw)



Sable released 5 days ago and so far is sitting at 77 on PC and 68 on Xbox. It seems like the major issues on the Xbox version in the summer demo weren't fixed, the game was still a stuttering mess on release on Xbox and has several other bugs as well. Looks like we all overpredicted on it by quite alot.

Next game release is Age of Empires 4, make sure you get your predictions in before it releases. I will be updating the leaderboard with points from Sable and The Artful Escape in a few days.



Echo Generation has been dated for October 21, making it the next release in the contest. Get your votes in!



Sorry about the lack of updates recently, it's been a busy time for me. Echo Generation and Age of Empires 4 are both out now, Echo is sitting on a 75 meta currently while AoE 4 is sitting on an 83. I will give them both several more days at least for more reviews to come in before I set the final score and tally up the scores for predictions. Next release is Forza Horizon 5, get your votes in.



Alot of good Age of Empire predictions.



Cute and honest Sega Saturn fan, also noone should buy Sega grrrr, Sega for life.

Looks like there was a few I never rated so ill do that now.

Forza Horizon 5 - 92. Easily going to be considered the best FH to date by critics and imo it definitely looks like it. But I think it won't score any higher because it's still very much sticking to that FH formula (which there's absolutely nothing fucking wrong with that!)

After seeing the Halo Infinite gameplay I'm still pretty confident about my 88 prediction, I think the open world aspect will be more a negative than a positive but gameplay, gunplay and OST will all excel.
