Ask and you shall (eventually) receive

We like to think that we're receptive to the wants and needs of our readership here at Nintendo Life, but one thing we've neglected to do in the past few years is heed the demands for file size data to be included on game pages. Moving forward you will find that the game information page will now include the...

10/10

The observant among you may have noticed that the scoring system has changed at VC Reviews from a five star system to a far more expressive scale of ten.
