In brightest day,
In darkest dim,
No tool man shall I broker him,
Let those who shout 'More Power' grim
Heed my call, I don't think so Tim

I sure do hope that Mr. 75/100 did the full 100% of the game and is underwhelmed by that, and isn't literally complaining about a game for children being easy to get through

Some big names still unscored



Will it climb up to 98, or will Jim gently caress this up again???

And yes, this question is absolutely vital to my enjoyment of the game

Jim doesn't score any games no more. That 7.5 score though I can't tell is that like an onion-esq site for games someone mistook for something serious because it reads like someone parodying a HARDCORE GAMER

I believe Emmanuelle is shit, though Emmanuelle 2, Emmanuelle '77 and Goodbye, Emmanuelle may be very good movies.

theres a gameboy snapshot filter and the game looks so amazing even with those on that i want action replay codes or some poo poo to apply it to regular play.

Not counting ports, publishers that shipped 2 or more 95+ metacritic games within twelve months include Take2/2K Games (both in 2001-2002 and 2007-2008), Activision (2000-2001) and Nintendo (in 2000, 2002-2003 and 2006-2007). Some publishers like Namco make it in if you lengthen the window to 18 months.

I'm gonna go down to the store tomorrow morning before it opens with a coffee in hand. Then I'm going to buy one of the copies, take it home and not play it for like a week.

I'm moving. But the place I'm moving to doesn't have gamestop and I have to spend this credit.

If only there were a way to play the game on a device you could conveniently carry around with you, running off of some sort of portable energy source
