Well many have claimed that I give out scores of 7 too often, and someone asked me for a list of all my reviews on the site along with the scores so here it is. And with only 9 sevens awarded in 70 reviews, it seems I'm not as big a fan of the number 7 as once thought. :P

In fact I'm rather partial to 8's and 9's with 14 scores of 8 given and 19 scores of 9 given out. Even the lowly 4's clocked in 10 given out. WOW! :P

Can you add all those scores up and give us your average score? Wouldn't it be weird if it was a 7? :-p

Nah, I'm just having some fun with it. In all honesty, I was a bit curious how it stacked up myself. :D

Bah! I always round scores. Your average is a 7 mate, and that's what I call fascination.

I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

My inflated ego prevents me from allowing others to affect how I feel about my reviews. I don't like any of my reviews any more because people praise them and I don't like them any less when people criticize them. :)

Oh and I always round down. It's an average of 6!

EDIT: I also got in this DS game today called "Personal Trainer: Walking"
Anyone know anything about this one? It's got a little accessory that you put in your pocket and it tracks how much you walk each day. Then the tallies are beamed into the DS via the Wi-fi and it keeps track of everything. I'm afraid this one slipped under my radar.

Personal Trainer: Walking? Are you serious Corbie? I never heard of such a game. Sounds pretty hardcore though!;)

Yeah I missed it too. I got it in from Nintendo today. It's a Touch Generation game. Supposedly it comes out on the 26th. I've been carrying this little pedometer-like thing around for the past four hours. Unfortunately, I've hardly left my desk. :)

It even has one you can clip on your dog or cat to track it's walking. :D

I'm personally well aware of Personal Trainer: Walking. Although I have no intention of getting it, it does sound interesting as it further capitalizes on the very same niche Wii Fit is now leader of. Not to mention it introduces a new function that Nintendo is sure to continue using in future games.

Also, I saw Marble Saga getting a 6 and stopped reading the rest. Lol. j/k
So you don't like them any less when people criticize. C'mon everyone. All-out war against Corbie's future reviews! Who's with me? :P

Wow, so Personal Trainer: Walking even has a clip-on pedometer for your pet. LOL! Nintendo should have saved this little gem for E3!;)

It rounds to 7, and Nintendo Life doesn't give decimals, so yes, it's a 7. You're such a 7-lover. I bet you have 7's painted on your walls, and bedsheets decorated with 7's. Admit it!

I wasn't even going to bother posting in this thread at all... but I have a bone to pick with this post right here of "The Great" Corbie's!
And that's just because he listed his personal informtion... like where he lives! I hate it for people to get the wrong impression & go do something aweful to him if they knew where he lived in the US! :(

And I hate to remind people that's its not wise to give out personal information... because its obvious that people already know that & should know better! I mean I know the laws of the internet; & I obied by them! ;)

So I wouldn't even go out on a limb & report that above quoted post myself; for I know I seriously won't! :(

Just looking out for you Corbie! ;)

Also I'm just curious why people even care about this kind of subject; even if you all find it interesting or funny for some odd wierd reasons?! 7 scores aren't that all bad you know! I just hate low scores though; anything that is scored low is "white trash" SHOVELWARE" to the core!!! ;)

#1 it wouldn't' do you any good to report the post as it will go to me.
#2 That's a joke, not my real personal information.
#3 It's just a silly running joke about the 7's as there was a stretch where I gave a few in a row.
#4 I'm getting tired of numbering these items so I'll stop now. :P

EDIT: Oh and I don't go by "The Great Corbie" anymore, I've moved up to "The Amazing Corbie" now. Just FYI. :D
