    Famitsu is definately losing credability with me. I cannot see how there could be around 10 titles or so that have been "perfect" in their eyes in the last 2 years. But I guess it is their opinion but still...

    The trailers for this game look really amazing, maybe this score isn't biased at all.

    looking forward to everything

    also YOU CAN MAKE YOUR OWN METAL GEARS


    edit: I remember Kojima saying something on his twitter about him planning the next game in his head, hope he does something crazy and makes a game that turns out to be Big Boss on a bad acid trip.

    Looks fun! It's a shame that the Japanese will lose a scene to keep it at the CERO 14 level [​IMG]

    The demo I enjoyed and I am sure the game will be great. But as far as I am concerned Famitsu scores mean less than nothing, I have found too many of their scores highly suspect in the past so I just don't trust them now.

    *Waits to see if there's a Famitsu magazine in the Japanese version*

    Famitsu scores don't really mean much nowadays. They've been handing out more perfect scores than ever, and mainly it's just games that are insanely popular with the Japanese fan base, and games that don't deserve that score. NSMB Wii? I wouldn't give it a 40/40. A fun game, yes, but perfect? No. MH3? Oh no. I don't think I'd give it a 9/10. Monster Hunter is just really popular in Japan. They've been handing out perfect or near perfect scores to the highest bidder.

    And for the record, for Final Fantasy fans, the only Final Fantasy game to get a perfect score was XII. Just for reference.

    The game looks fun though, despite the rampant product placement. The Monster Hunter stuff isn't so concerning if it's just a silly extra, and I can definitely see cooking rations and the general feeling of going through stuff and collection in a game like this.

    Whether it got a 1/40 or a 40/40 I'd still buy it. I don't pay attention to popular game reviewers anymore (e.g, IGN, Famitsu, Nintendo Power). They're somewhat reliable, but they probably don't like what I do like, so we'll have different views on it. Additionally, Metal Gear Solid is my favorite franchise, so I'd naturally buy all of their games.

    All the naysayers.

    Yes! Because games need to remain mediocre. You people realize that it's possible that game developers and the games themselves have gotten better therefore better scores and better average overall year-to-year. Especially when you are counting sequels that were decent are then given the opportunity to improve.

    Played the demo, wasn't even enough to get me remotely interested in it, you basically just had the start of the training mission to play around with, no killing of enemies or anything.

    Impossible. It can't be perfect. Too many games get perfect scores by Famitsu's reviewers nowadays. The only one that ever deserved it IMHO was Super Mario Galaxy.

    Maybe it IS perfect, but most likely it has some kind of small bug/control issue which makes the gameplay annoying. So then it isn't perfect. I'll see about it when it gets dumped and I get a bigger MemoryStick.

    The demo had four missions IIRC (with the final one being a battle against a tank and a bunch of enemy soldiers), way to get stuck on the training level though.
