The Last Story. It had a complete and satisfying conclusion in pretty much every way. Tied everything up. So good. I know it's not technically a series. But it wraps up and feels like it was an entire series.

    Looks like Gertsmann blew this review. He's the only reviewer who gave the game a 40. The only other low score is a 7 from GS. Every other review sites that knows what they are doing is giving the game 8.0 scores and higher. Big ouch for GiantBomb on this game. Gertsmann has a right to his own opinion, it's just that the majority of reviewers don't agree with him. I think he's pretty much alone on his thoughts for this game. I've already picked up my copy of the game and the game is awesome. No where near a 40 score in my opinion. Multiplayer is still incredibly fun.

    2 stars does not equate to a 40/100. That's why they use stars, because video game review scales have been using almost exclusively the numbers 6-10.

      I know this has been said before, but can we PLEASE stop doing pixel art? Do anything else for about 5 years then come back to it. There's just too many games trying to do this look and the last one that I actually loved the look of was Fez.

      I continue to love the look of them. Weird.

        Veruca Salt is actually a character from Charlie And The Chocolate Factory.

        Yep, that's where the band Veruca Salt took the inspiration for their name from.

        I remember being excited and watching that Parasite Eve 2 trailer a bunch of times. Then the game came out and was a weak-ass Resident Evil clone. Never got past that opening motel area. (I did enjoy the shower scene though.)

        Wait, wasn't the first Parasite Eve a Resident Evil copycat (who can blame them), and Parasite Eve 2 then felt confident enough to make its own path? I thought it was a little bit like the Silent Hill series in that aspect.

        PE1 was not RE clone at all. It's the second game that was all tank controly.

          Wait, was Drew changing the channels during that opening segment? When I played this game I remember the cooking segment being MUCH longer, like a ten minute show, and don't remember any of the other stuff. Am I misremembering?

          Yes you can change the channel.

            The real lesson is that Castlevania sucks shit on the NES excepting their soundtracks.

            Uhh. No. CV3 is one of the greatest if not the.

            I've never played Revolution. Was put off my the bad rumors of the Boss fights. Is it worth a play if I find it cheap and just put it on easy to see the story and world? Loved the original (and even liked the second one).

            edit: Also what is different in the director cut?

            One of my favorite games of last gen. Truly a masterpiece. Boss battles be damned.

              The absolute worst thing about these comments is the goobers judging a game based on how another person plays it.

              MGS3 is one of my favorite games of all time. I've never killed a single soldier in any of my playthroughs of it and have had a muuuuuch easier time than Drew is with the Rambo approach. It's like watching someone play Deus Ex and the way they "choose their own path" is to SHOOT EVERYONE. Perfectly valid way to play, but easily the least interesting...especially to watch.

              Love this series, though; dew the Drew.

              Crawling around and opening the menu would be the least interesting to watch. This is pretty entertaining to me.
