    Rihabiriteshon - Japandemonium for May 4th, 2013

    Bibliomania and columns apparently do not mix well. Who'd-a thunk?

    Did you notice that your last review was #50? You're a Platinum reviewer now - congrats on that!

    Looking at 4 weeks' worth of Famitsu rankings at once, I'm surprised so many of those games fell off at the end of April. I would have expected more of them to have Monster Hunter's longevity. Is it typical in Japan for games to fall off quickly, or was the last week of April a major release week due to the upcoming holidays?

    It seems like in the US the same games stay on top for weeks if not months. Right now, SimCity is the #2 bestselling PC game on Amazon, which blows my mind since it still sells for $60 and doesn't work.
    The lesson here is that dreams inevitably lead to hideous implosions.

    Y'know what? This would be perfect for a Culture Corner I'll see if I can scrape a column together by the end of the week this time >_<
