WHAT?

The beloved NES RPG DQ4 with a 7.5!

It deserves an eight point five AT LEAST on the NES so this version should be even better!

Looking forward to the Tetris and MM9 articles.

If only we got the HotD news from NP like two days earlier, it wouldn't be so disappointing. Now NP's just late to the party.

Just like our old pal Peter Moore.

Yeah, a lot of their scores look pretty low. Also, a few issues ago, NP rated DQIV as the 18th best NES game of all time, so what happened? It seems with each new issue, I trust their reviews less and less.

I'm not so sure I completely agree with their top 15 games to look forward to either.

I for the most part relativly agreed with their most of the lists, but there were a lot of small (and a few major) things wrong with it in my opinion. Like EBA as the number 1 DS game? Come on guys, it's good but, seriously.

Actually, I disagreed with all their number 1's (except for Wii and N64).
