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.

yeah me neither lol, pretty surprised but glad I went with a semi-safe answer for that one

Also deepest apologies to the couple of new entries here I can't rly count the Arceus predictions as the scores were already in today when you sent them. Will add all ur others tho!



I know not all the scores are in, and it is likely to fluctuate either up or down one to two points at this point...but I'm glad I was pretty on the money with my prediction so far. Can I be number one for 2021 and 2022? Stay tuned!

I knew it was gonna score higher than Pokemon Sword and Shield since , It plays like it were like in the anime and you can ride your Pokemon either flying or on Sea and the battles looked more interesting , you don't have to run around the grass and get a random Pokemon like the older games? you can actually spot a Pokemon you want in the wild which is a plus. Video is 5 months. Sword and Shield randomly popup on the grass when the area looks baren from afar . but in Arceus you can spot a pokemon from a long distance and wild Pokemon will attack the Pokemon trainer. reminisce of Pikachu thundershocks Ash . One of scenes has Lucario training by kicking a tree .

That's a whole lot better than I was expecting. I'm glad I didn't go lower than 80 like I was originally planning to. I stuck with 80 since I thought it would likely just get a couple of points for the fact that its a Pokemon game. Glad to see the game actually turn out to be really good.



     

Check out my lastest games review: Fast RMX and  Snipperclips: Cut it out Together

Anyone wanna provide a list of all the new shit they announced today lmao? If not Ill update this over the weekend



I'll just throw in my prediction for Xenoblade Chronicles 3 while I'm here, going with an 88. Oh and Fire Emblem Warriors Three Hopes, I'll go with a 79. 



Xenoblade 3 will be the first game to score 101, you heard it here first (will update my predictions soon).

And glad Pokémon Legends turned out good.



My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first. 

Adding my predictions for the newly announced games here:
XC3 - 87
FE: Three Hopes - 80
Switch Sports - 79
Mario Strikers: BL - 81
