    Some curious choices there, but mostly I’d say the latest Zelda is in strong company.

    I assume the folks at Famitsu hadn’t finished MGS5, because nobody has, because the game’s ending was never finished. And maybe the Japanese version didn’t have the wrong voice actor — someone who couldn’t pronounce the word “nuclear” in a story about nuclear weapons. (It seems I very much disagree with calling MGS5 “perfect” :^)
