My Amazon preorder is now saying it’ll be delivered by 11 PM tomorrow.

What the hell, I’ve never seen later than 9 before. If I get a knock on the door at 10:50 I’ll be pissed.

I'm gonna bet mid to high 80s (85-89). I've largely avoided the spoiler thread, but the people there seemed happy, and we still have those glowing previews to go off of. I expect the main complaints will be graphics and possibly uneven pacing due to the monastery segments lasting a while. It'll still be a great game though.
Yeah, there's probably enough people that are going to ding it for the graphics for it to fall in that range even if everything else is great.

Still putting my guess at 86-90, I can't decide if the social aspects are going to drag it down or up in reviewers eyes though.

it's going to get a higher metacritic by a bit than xenoblade 2 but I bet it won't really deserve it

Yup. All my packages are delivered late morning-mid afternoon so I'm hoping it'll be there when I get off.

If you’re a Fire Emblem fan, then this game is an instant classic. Minor tweaks to the combat, a massive investment in the relationships that define the characters you meet and mentor. Here’s my review on Critical Hit:

90/100

Fire Emblem: Three Houses doesn’t change how it plays on the battlefield, but its greatest advancements lie in the moments between the horror of war. The bonds forged between comrades in arms, the drive to really get to know the cast who you spill blood with and the opportunity to truly learn about the finality of death all combine across a vast and sweeping fantasy epic that’ll leave you breathless by the time the credits finally roll.

Eurogamer: "Fire Emblem goes back to school for the most epic, generous and dynamic outing for the series yet."

Throwing my hat in for a solid 86. Still going to be a great game, but I presume reviewers will have some issues with the graphics and other minor complaints that will bring the score down.
