          Nice :)

          Speaking of episode 65, I've had a lot of the same conversation you guys had about 10/10 status on my own and the values therein if I were to start rating things numerically. I've had to change what perfect scores mean though otherwise I'd end up in the same boat you all are in. Basically I'd give 10/10's on games that I believe everyone should play, not that the games themselves are flawless, but that the flaws are minor, easily overlooked, and may even add some odd charm to the game itself. From the discussion I've heard so far though I think RE3:remake would still fail to hit that status for not bringing something truly new to the medium or its genre, which IMO is a prerequisite.

      Craddock (regarding Doom Eternal): "Josh, this is a 7 out of 10. 8 out of 10 at best."

      Greg, you lied to me. When I asked (FF7R SPOILERS) Did they fuck up Sephiroth? you said Not really.

      Judging by what you say here in the podcast, they did exactly the stupid fucking thing they shouldn't have done and ruined Sephiroth.
