Got the feeling that Split\Second was going to be a laugh from the demo. Good to see it get a high score. :)

How negative did they sound about Nier and 3D Dot Game Hero? I'll no doubt get the games anyway, I'm just interested to hear what upset Edge.

I've got nier and tbh it's wound me up the first half hour is abysmal deliver missions and even when you get further in the story the key RPG elements work but there's nothing fresh and new.

Did they ever fix the stupid traffic in SC4?

It always took the shortest rather than the fastest route or something, which meant all those highways you'd spend money on were never used.

On Neir...

The game's huge and complex, but it's major problem is endemic and simple: it lacks polish. Every interaction is just about good enough, but nothings exceptional.

On 3D Dot Game Heroes...

3D Dot Game Heroes is a curiosity. An inferior imitation of a two-decade-old series, it's nevertheless delivered with obvious affection for it's inspiration and considerable charm of it's own. It doesn't really offer anything new, but it does invite you to look back on how we used to live with a little more fondness.

The cover seems a lot busier than usual.
