    Hey, Dave. The scores were gathered by Gematsu, not NeoGAF. GAF just links to us.

    @Digital Bamboo Its Famitsu. It’s a glorified promotional rag. Their reviews are a handful of words and ultimately meaningless.

    you mean like EVERY review…you can’t trust any review simply because nobody has the same taste as you, it’s always best to try yourself

    @pukem0n There are plenty of sites I trust for reviews, because there are plenty of sites willing to actually use more than just the upper spectrum of the scoring table and aren’t in publishers pockets.

    36 for COD Ghosts and 32 for one of the most valorated titles of Sony, Resogun. I dont give a f*ck for Famitsu scores since Nintendogs fail.
