The Rumble Reader Episode 2: Shamitsu

In the second installment of the Reader, Nick and Justin tackle the “mystical” world of Japanese game journalism. The 40/40 Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker score in Weekly Famitsu recently stirred up controversy, but the guys delve into what that magazine used to stand for. They also shed light on Xbox Live Indie Games through a developer blog on 4 Color Rebellion. Lastly, GameFan is once again sitting in magazine racks across the country, but the guys are still trying to figure out why. (No copy editing makes Justin angry.)

  • I’ve really been enjoying these Rumble Reader episodes! They’re the kind of in-depth thoughts that I wish most blogs would provide instead of “just the news.” Very nice feature!
