DToid:Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch could have easily been called Japanese Role-Playing Games: The Official Videogame, for it plays out like an overview of the entire genre as much as it does a game in its own right.
Reviews don't really matter to me, as I would of bought this regardless of it's reception. But it is a treat to see it universally lauded. Gives me a warm fuzzy feeling. Still, GameSpot are going to steamroll this. The guy doing the review hasn't stopped bitching about the game over Twitter. Expect extreme nitpicking.
Gamespot will steamroll this just to be different from the rest, they're very similar to edge magazine, giving average scores to great games just to get attention. Ni No Kuni is now a certified AAA game, the haters can eat s**t
i already lost any trust i had for gamespot long time ago when they give infamous 2 a 7.5/10
GameSpot has their moments. Let's not forget Demon's Souls was their GOTY in 2009.
@ enemy Your right they are good and bad. I love the quality of their site though.
I agree that EDGE have given some dodgy scores like &/10 for Fallout 3 but GS are all over the place, they gave AC1 a 9/10!? and Jet Set radio HD a 4.5/10!? EDGE gave AC1 a 7/10 and JSR an 8/10
The Playstation all stars review hurt the most Not because of the score, but the generally poor review full of contradictions and non-nonsensical criticisms...
Will buy over summer! I love me some JRPG's!
the game is getting 9+ and 10 left and right makes me wonder about GI review which give it a 7
I've had my eye on this for a long time. Unfortunately, I am unable to play it because my PS3 broke a while ago, and I obviously wasn't able to replace it. Hopefully I'll get to play it eventually.
i may get it tomorrow because it's expensive now 26BD . i may wait 2 or 3 days so i can get it for 23 BD .. 1BD=4 dollars so that's a lot xD
Wow, what currency is that?
Bahrain Dinar :)
If you came to Dammam, you can find it for 200 ryials = $52, also it has been on shelves since January 15th. Hope you enjoy it :)
Come on, Friday... why isn't it Friday yet?!
Can't wait for it, but Europe has another 11 days before release. But I will be saying the same thing next week.
Alas, I did not know it was delayed. Woe betides me.
Yes by a week because the supply problems. We get a free monster for it though.
Getting this tomorrow at work (wheee, yay for being a video games store clerk!) and right after my work, I lose myself in it, completely!
Not sure which one to get first, this or Mass Effect Trilogy, any suggestions?
