I'm not talking about if you hated Xenosaga II or not. I'm talking about why people think that a score in the 70s is bad for any game.


By convention, 70 seems to be the conditional pass. I'm not just talking about what consumers say, but also what publishers and developers believe. 80 is kinda like the minimum baseline for a successful, worthwhile project (implied by David Jaffe and Harvey Smith too), while anything under that is average, if not mediocre. Below 70 is unacceptable.

I'm not sure why review scores are inflated that way, but someone recently told me that some American states specify 70 as a high school passing grade (as well as the passing mark for other types of tests......it's pretty silly since increasing the standard from 50 to 70 merely shifts a bell curve), so reviewers might be conforming to what gamers are familiar with.


I don't know if it's all of Ohio or just my school, but a 70 is a D-.


70 was a C at my high school.

They're shipping orders on Friday instead of Monday due to Labor Day.  Next-day-air shipping would have the item arrive on Tuesday, the 2nd of September.


I see, good to know. Thanks for the info.

But 2 was the worst rpg I've ever played, at least as far as gameplay goes.


If thats the worst gameplay in an RPG you've ever played, you haven't played very many RPG's. I found XS2 to be enjoyable.

is Enchanted Arms any good?


No. Don't let Pat persuade you either :P (his review is pretty positive, but I thought the game was crap). Sorry Pat!

Played Too Human for awhile. Now a lv.17 berserker. I was dying every minute in the ice forest on single player campaign mode and it was ticking me off because my equipment was breaking from it, so I shut the game off for awhile before I pulled my hair out. Went back after 2 hours and played online co-op. That's where the funs at.

Because I don't want to buy a console that is guaranteed to fail?

I'm not knocking the content, I can think of at least five games off the top of my head I'd like to play on the system....but why would I buy something that is guaranteed to break?


I have a launch 360 and it has yet to have ANYTHING wrong with it. They are not guaranteed to fail.

.hack, Digimon World, Legend of Heroes (US pub).


Forgot Baiten Kaitos, which probably will bite the dust as well because it was also by Monolith.

I played the demo to Vesperia and own Eternal Sonata... and I think Eternal Sonata has better graphics, but worse character designs.

I downloaded the Force Unleashed demo and enjoyed it quite a bit. It was hard to target stuff but I still had alot of fun slinging things everywhere. Too bad the demo ended in like 10 minutes :(. Definitely getting this game.

Well I'm only 5 ft 6 in and weigh 120 lbs.


Bad!  I prescribe a 10oz. steak for breakfast.


Saw that coming.

Well I'm only 5 ft 6 in and weigh 120 lbs so I'm not very threatening. I'm almost always with a group of friends when I'm walking around etc... and when I'm leaving work I make sure to get out the door the same time as everyone I know that way if something happens they will know about it.

By the way, which Tales game are actually good? I haven't played a single one and I don't really want to ferret out which are actually good through all the titles and spin offs.


Tales of Symphonia is great (my favorite in the series), Abyss is decent, Legendia is crap, and Phantasia I didn't play enough to get a grasp of how good it is. The rest I haven't touched.
