They also gave MW3 a 39/40, as well as other questionable games with rather high reviews.

Famitsu doesn't really have the respect it used to garner anymore. So many 40/40 reviews in the last few years. But it's partially due to the entire industry's obsession with the idea that anything less than 8/10 (or I guess in their case, 32/40) is a gigantic failure.

That and Japan's growing love for Western developed games.

I spoke too soon. Got dragons flying backwards now and even when you take out all their health (which is very difficult because they keep flying away from me) they don't die!

Here is the latest.

Update 1.3 for Skyrim is now available on Steam and is being submitted to Sony and Microsoft. As soon as we have more information on the update hitting PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, we’ll let everyone know. Below are the release notes for the update:
Update 1.3 Notes (all platforms unless specified)
  • General stability improvements
  • Optimize performance for Core 2 Duo CPUs (PC)
  • Fixed Radiant Story incorrectly filling certain roles
  • Fixed magic resistances not calculating properly
  • Fixed issue with placing books on bookshelves inside player purchased homes
  • Fixed dragon animation issues with saving and loading
  • Fixed Y-look input to scale correctly with framerate
We’re also planning on rolling out support for 4-Gigabyte Tuning (Large Address Aware) next week for our PC users. Stay tuned!




At least we can look forward to them properly support 4GB LAA.

Yeah I've always wondered about that, why game reviews will be highly negative and score the game a 6.5/10. Almost nothing ever gets below 5.

Anyone having issues with 1.3?
I think I may skip this one as well and see what the next brings.

1.3 fixed my backward dragons problem. Nothing else much changed for me that I could tell from the 2 hours I managed to play yesterday.
