  1. Luigi’s mansion 3 looks pretty good, but it’s a shame to hear about its more linear structure from others like gamexplain…though admittedly the structure does make sense considering its a hotel. Still though, hopefully more interconnected level design is in the game.

  2. Slightly lower score for Luigi than I expected but doesn’t really bother me. It looks fantastic and from listening to the people who have already played it I am very excited.

  3. I sometimes take these famitsu scores with a pinch of salt.
    There scores are more directed to there own personal preference.
    Still a good score though.
    I’m pretty sure luigis mansion will be one of the top switch titles.

  4. Divinity is one of the best RPG’s I’ve ever played, so to me (and Opencritic has a higher score as well) 32/40 seemed a bit low. But I guess it’s a bit more western than a typical JRPG. Chrono Trigger is btw my favourite RPG of all time.
