    Who else has the tutorial demo with the giant red dragon boss? I love that so much, play it everyday. My high score on it is 108,000. I just kept doing the energy build-up red attack that destroys everything on screen.

    So many game reviews are already giving it high marks.

    BTW, who said eight days? North American release date is March 20, so it should be on shelves by the 21st. Today's the 17th.

    When did this happen? Gamespot just reported today that it was due to ship on the 20th. That was fast.

    Huh. Gamespot does have it on the 20th.
    Yay for less waiting. C:

    Just saw the Xplay Review (Yeah, I watched G4).
    Gave it a 3/5.
    Thought it would at least get a 4 from them.

    3/5??! This is madness!! I personally don't like the Xplay. Back in the early 2007, I used to watch them because they made fun of the game and actually gave a decent review while at it. Now, they're being serious about their reviews, and another thing I've found was that their reviews are very short. Too bad.

    The book type gameplay is a good idea.

    Not to sound too fanboyish, but a 3-point-fucking-5?! [​IMG]

    Honestly, it seems like the prettier the DS game, the lower critics feel they must score it. I've been replaying the demo countless times, and I don't give a rat's ass if this game is only an hour long -- it's an incredible accomplishment on the DS. Taking crack shots at it is ridiculous, especially considering something Sessler said recently about hating how so many blogs these days seem to be purposefully down on good games just to attract readership.

    I guess I can't really comment intelligently about the X-Play score (or any other score of the game, for that matter) until I've actually played Dragon Sword through for myself, but that score doesn't sound right. This game would have to have Tingle come out and spray the screen with a tit for it to get anything less than a perfect score from me. [​IMG]

    *fanboy rant over*
