Hot damn!

Looking at the reviews the technical stuff is always the biggest or even only complaint. Would be a 90 with better graphics.

My prediction was 87 for Pokemon :) and it's 86 on Metacritic right now.



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

Pokemon legends Arceus. The overhaul seems to have gone down well with press outlets :- 87
Triangle strategy. Seems to be somewhat limited by the type of game it is :- 81
Bayo 3. Bayo games score highly and there seems to be lots of time/effort being put into it. :- 89
Kirby. Again, seems very ambitious and maybe seen as a breath of fresh air :- 84
Splatoon 3. 1st 2 games in series didn't score massively high, so :-83
Mario and rabbids. Genuinely unsure on this 1, original loved by critics tho, so, idk :- 83
BOTW2. Follow up to one of the most loved games ever. Can it get a similar score? Tough act to follow! :- 94



DON'T WIN ME CHIBI BUDDY DON'T WIN ME.

ANIMAL CROSSING NEW LEAF FRIEND CODE:- 5129 1175 1029. MESSAGE ME.
ANDY MURRAY:- GRAND SLAM WINNER!

In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!

Tagging for later.



Signature goes here!

You both threw me off.  I'm thinking this thread is going by OpenCritic scoring not Metacritic?

Showing an 84 on OpenCritic.

86 now, pretty unexpected

It'll reach 87 on both Meta and Open or be a point lower for open ?

I feel like it will end around 85 or 84 for both. There is still only 40 reviews and some harsh sites haven't posted it.

85 now, started out at 86 I think.



Well shoot, was not expecting Legend Arceus to review that well, that is a higher score than almost all of the Pokemon remakes and 3rd versions, as well as higher than 2 different generation's 1st/2nd versions, Ruby/Sapphire and Sword/Shield. Legends Arceus looked like a bit of a technical mess last I saw it, with very dated graphics and framerate issues, I was expecting that alone to at least cause it to be lower 80's, if not upper 70's, which is why I went with 79. Oh well I guess, you win some and you lose some, definitely off to a bad start on this league.
