So what's up with Famitsu?

13 titles have scored perfectly over 23-years.

And yet this year alone four games have got perfect scores? Something is definetly up. Did you guys read that Wired article a few months back on it? I think its still up in the Monster Hunter 3 thread.

I...have no idea. They're probably on the take.

Look here, this article was before Bayonetta and NSMB.

http://www.wired.com/gamelife/2009/08/famitsu-monster-hunter/

Notice anything? Like the fact that Famitsu has now given out nearly as many perfect scores in the last two years as it did in the last 20? At this point, there’s no denying it: Something has changed with regards to Famitsu’s editorial policy on perfect scores — in an instant, it has gone from almost absurdly stringent to positively magnanimous. But why?

What's sad is that actual marketing influences game sales more than review scores, as shown by a recent study, of which I haz not the link. LOL

So all that money spent on getting good reviews would be better spend in either:

a) More marketing
b) Actually making your product better.

In Famitsu's defense (holy shit what have I become), though, most of those games did get stellar critical reception all across media outlets.

What I find harder to swallow with Famitsu 10/10s is that there are four seperate reviewers and its very unlikely to get a unanimous verdict like that, no matter the game.

So does that make Dinosaur Planet one of the greatest games ever?

Well it was a solid game. I remember starting it on a friday night, finishing it sunday, and putting about 25 hours into it in those few days. It was a more enjoyable experience than Wind Waker was.

Hey, Hamster, you checked out Atari's website yet? They have flash versions of a bunch of old-ass 2600 games, although you probably have them all already (and play them regularly). I played Yar's Revenge yesterday for the first time in like a million years. LOL I almost cried. I will show my daughters today what their old man used to play when he was young.

Yeah, I have those on both cartridge and emulator (Stella and MAME). They are all great fun. No long, boring cut-scenes, overly complicated controls or lame story lines here! It's cool that they have several arcade games on that page too. Crystal Castles is best played with a trackball, but works well enough with the mouse. Adventure was the first game to have an "Easter Egg" in the form of a secret room that had the programmer's name who made the game (back then, Atari refused to give credit to their game creators, so this was an inventive way to bypass that stupidity. That awful policy also led to the creation of Activision, which became Atari's biggest software competitor). Battlezone was the first 3D game that I ever played, and I was stunned by it in the arcade; the 2600 version is also quite good. Yar's Revenge is an absolute classic. I'd put it on my Top 25 games of all time, but that's too much work. LOL  So many fantastic memories just on those few games. Have fun with them, Steel. They're all worth sharing with your kids. Happy

Yeah, that shouldn't fly. The whole purpose of having separate reviewers is that each one should be able to spot things that others might overlook. The way Famitsu is reviewing, though, seems more like a collective jerk-off than actual reviewing.

That's what I would say if I gave two shits about scores anyway. Scoooooooores!

Dude, you should totally make a special retro podcast with Leo. I would host it, no questions asked. Your knowledge of pre-8bit era is as extensive as Leo's.

So does that make Dinosaur Planet one of the greatest games ever?

Well it was a solid game. I remember starting it on a friday night, finishing it sunday, and putting about 25 hours into it in those few days. It was a more enjoyable experience than Wind Waker was.

This man has been exposed to a deadly neurotoxin. Damnit somebody help him.

LOL Minda_Cubed also liked it more than Wind Waker. As did that ass Pedro.

I am talking about that Mario Galaxy clone, look at the news above.

And if you are taking about Star Fox, NO, just no.

Yes, just yes.

I prefered its well paced adventuring over Wind Waker's "Gee...I hit a new block of ocean in my sailboat and now I can't move so I have to break out my pipe and play a goddamn song to change the direction of the wind for the 10 millionth time just so I can get to this crappy little island" approach.

Dude, you should totally make a special retro podcast with Leo. I would host it, no questions asked. Your knowledge of pre-8bit era is as extensive as Leo's.  

I'll do it as long as the three of us are nood!
