As long as it's not like Mario Kart 7 where I sometimes have to exit the game completely because I'm stuck on the please wait screen.

Hey there people!
Do you guys know if when using a mii, do you have the choice to take that racing-hat off the mii?
or is it mandatory?
cause if the mii has to wear it all the time... Then that sucks >.<

Do you even

That's actually horrifying

They want you to draw you face on it... DO IT. DRAW YOUR FACE.

I think more people will draw Turbo's face instead.

Yeah I don’t know either.

Oh look! A Morphloggery.

hey...
This game comes out on May 30th
I have a VERY important High School Exam on the 31th
That exam determines if i get into High school or not...
Even though i have studied very well, should i be playing this game the day before my exam? (the 30th when it comes out)

Why would you want to spend the day gaming if the test is so important?

I'd recommend you to reward yourself with the game after the exam.

Yeah maybe you're right.
But i feel that the day before the exam im going to be really stressed and playing this will make me relax alot.
That and i AM buying the game by myself, i paid it myself. And if i dont play it the 30th my sister will play it first than me and i will suffer watching her doing so.

Do you even

I guess you can try it for 15, 30 minutes for a break. You can't just study for 10 hours without a pause.

I bet you never knew the scores of the games you played when you were young, some of which were great games.

That's terrible advice! It means you'll end up wasting your money on a lot of rubbish. It also would put an even greater power in the hands of big developers to reel people in with flashy trailers and impressive previews (that have no connection with the overall game quality).

I think when a publisher puts out review copies early it shows they are confident in the quality of their game. I have always been suspicious of games that are reviewed on or after the date of release.

Lol well you'll have to be suspicious of 95% of indie games then. Most games that are reviewed ahead of schedule are the ones that have spent millions on marketing and therefore everyone is anticipating them. A lot of smaller, but equally good, games can't afford to do that!

"Its not over till the fat lady sings"- anything you do can benefit you for that exam, just don't do too much and have breaks/an early night. I usually study before exams, only because I can't not to have a day where I don't study due to having Too many xp

My strategy before exams has always been procrastinate until the night beforehand, then decide to study all night but end up just gaming all night instead, then going to the exam with no sleep and no study and just winging it.
It's always worked out pretty well for me, but can't say I'd recommend it.

no, your suppose to study material in 15 to 30 minute intervals a day, everyday within 2 weeks notice of any given test.

There are a huge range of exams people take in real life. No single piece of advice works for all of them. I've had exams that needed 2-3 days of revision (high school level), some that required 2 weeks and some that required 4 months (Masters degree).

Ok, fair enough (although that's not what first message seems to say, you say just play it and find out for yourself.)
I'm not entirely sure what the difference is though. The whole point of reviews and scores is just to get people's opinions on things. The only difference between a review and a score is that one is quicker! That's how I see it anyway.

I don't think it is terrible advice. I think a lot of people put too much faith in reviews. There are have been 6s that I have enjoyed more than 9s. Most reviews have to look at graphics, sound, and writing and weight them evenly against design. Design is the most important to me because it gives everything else meaning. Without good design everything else is just for show. Design is what you actually interact with. I think people should learn what a bad game is and not judge games based off cosmetic things (graphics, sound, writing) or reviews. Just my opinion.

I am not saying graphics, sound, and writing aren't important. I am just saying that, in my opinion, graphics, sound, and writing are there to support the Design.

People keep saying the Xbox One doesn't have Backwards Compatibility.
I don't think they know what Backwards Compatibility means...

Right, I agree it's important not to take reviews too seriously. Some of my favourite games of the last 5 years scored less than 80 on metacritic (Tales of the Abyss on 3DS comes to mind). But I think overall they do more good than harm. It's better to take them too seriously than not consider them at all, that's all I was trying to say. In general, the metacritic averages do tend to mirror the popular attitude (which you could actually measure statistically if you were that way inclined). It will therefore tend to be true, more often than not, that relying on reviews will help you find the games you'll end up liking.

Independent of that discussion is the issue of how you find games you like when there are so many on offer (especially on PC). That's another area where quick % scores come in handy.
