I find that highly amusing. Make of that what you will.

Hmm, still have my Wii set up, & I DID miss Xenoblade Chronicles.

Guess I might dust it off, if I can tear myself away from WoW/Rage/Batman that is.

Hot damn, now I'm excited! Never sure about the "Official" magazine scores but I trust Edge.

Alas, I'm going to have to wait 'till Christmas before I can get this (also Batman, Move controllers and HOTD:O on the PS3). Stupid economy!

I've always thoroughly enjoyed Edge's '10' games, but then I've been sure I'd love this anyway.

When I see what Nintendo have done with the big three franchises (as I see them anyway - Metroid, Zelda and Mario platformers, and that's assuming SS is really top notch) on the wii, it makes me even more disappointed at the series' they haven't touched Wave Race, F Zero, Pikmin etc.

f**k you reeg!!!!!!!!!!

I am actually tempted to go and get this issue, if I do it'll be my first gaming magazine since the release of the wii.

Oh, it'll be on the site the same day. So no I won't go and buy it.

Then it's a shame that this will not sell like it ought to...may be they should add guns, explosions and killing hoards of "evil" Arabs that might make it sell more than call of duty/battlefield!

I tried a quick demo at Eurogamer just to test out the mechanics and I was fully reassured that it will live up to my expectations.

That Edge enjoyed it and thought it was rather good?

I don't get why people say "i missed such and such a game"
I mean do games go out of date within a few months or something? Must a game be bought day one or thats it, its been missed?

If you are yet to play it then the later is better surely? It means the games cheaper which leaves more money to buy another game.
