That Real Racing review, the words are so out of tune with the score that I think it must be a misprint. The review is absolutely scathing and then up pops an 8/10. The review on the same page is also an 8/10 so I think there's been a balls up.

The Lego review is stupid. Moans that the game is let down by no licence and no multiplayer.

Bioshock Infinite - 10/10

I guess simple things like pressing X on everything and shooting dudes in the face are still the best things in gaming.

I went looking for a good story in Bioshock Infinite. Fortunately I found it a couple of days later in Tomb Raider.

Don't these people understand that it does have a license... It's the Lego City brand! What a load of shite

LOL, yeah. Everything needs a minimum of TWO licenses now.

Mario.. not enough.. Mario and Sonic! STILL NOT ENOUGH! Mario and Sonic at the Olympics! BLAM!

Roll on Lego Mario and Sonic at the Olympics, then we're cooking.

Telltale Games: An Episodic Success - visiting the developer of The Waking Dead

Would be interested in anyone that has ready this article, to see if their are any spoilers for the game. I'm up to episode three, would like to read this article on Telltale but not if it ruins anything further along in the game.

I don't put the scores up until after the mag hits the shops, you jerk. The thread is intended as a preview of what's in there.

One very mild spoiler about a character for episode four.

I think it does lose out. I still maintain that 6 is a perfectly good score for a good game. But then, I would say that :P

The Real Racing score should be 3, not 8.

Exactly, Its little more than a roller coaster ride.

I get the feeling games reviewers in magazines are little more than frustrated journo's who aren't doing their first choice job.

RR3 is pretty good, actually. Ive only played with all driving assists on, but the whole package is quite impressive in terms of presentation and production values. Its the first game Ive played on my phone where its clear that the traditional consoles may be in for a seriously rough ride in the next few years if these kinds of games gain traction on the mobile devices.

I dont mind the draconian IAPs, for the time being. I just quit out and play something else while waiting for the repairs and upgrades to be done with. This may change, though - I dont know how the IAP works the further you get into the game.

It has good gfx but suffers the same fate as any/all racing games of being unplayable with on screen buttons needed for such minor things as accelerating and brakes.

Maybe they reviewed it as a tech demo rather than the game, only explanation really.
