Now, I'm sure it's "rose colored glasses" and all, but this doesn't look much different from the original game.

its not rose colored glasses

To me, that's the problem with all "remasters". To my memory's eye, those games look exactly the same as before they were remastered. Ergo the only thing a remaster is really good for, is cancelling out the "rose colored glasses" effect and actually making a game look exactly the way I remember it -- which still is ugly and not aged well anyway.

I'll buy this for 5 bucks.

Dunno. Remasters with upgraded engines/graphics/etc, for me, at least, seem to match the 'nostalgia' view on some games I've played. Like the upcoming System Shock remake. I remember playing it when it first came out, with its janky Ultima Underworld graphics, and it was awesome back then. I play it now, and the age is very apparent... But after playing the demo for the remake that's coming up, it tickled the same kind of excitement I had from the first game, when I first played it.

I'm fine with remasters coming up, as long as they can expand and fix any of the original issues, but still inspire that 'ooooh' factor you get from playing the game when it originally came out. Now that tech for games has leaped and bounded past what it was previously, there's a ton of games I'd be eager to replay to see if the 'now' excitement they inspired can match or even surpass the nostalgia from before.

I'm chompin at the bit for an Arx Fatalis or Black and White remake in VR. ^.^

Wouldn't mind a 'gibberish' announcer, like Takeshi's Castle, with some random highlights. And if you really want to aggravate players, grappling mechanics like Gang Beasts. Yeet those people on out the way.

As someone who owned and once made the decision to move a 38” CRT TV, because idiocy and youth are common bedfellows, pairing a CRT with a trackball makes my back and brain hurt. :/

Playing Quake with a Trackball just seems like it'd get way too fiddly, honestly. And with a CRT... nope. I see that machine would have just sucked down quarters with people barely managing to get past the first or second level, because they couldn't hit anything.

They should thank mainly streamers. Its a game that is actually quite fun and that they can play with their viewers.

Literally the only things I could think of to make it better, other than a larger selection of maps/obstacles, is voice-overs like Takeshi's Castle with some highlights shown at the ending of each match.

Kojima has expressed interest in VR and has also said he has a bunch of great ideas for it. Valve gave him a Valve Index kit prior to its launch last year as well, which has finger tracking controllers that are quite similar to those that have shown up in PSVR patents. I wonder if VR is this "revolutionary method". It would certainly make people "crap their pants instead of just pissing them" (paraphrasing the quote in the article)

Probably. I've seen a good number of VR tubers freaking out when playing some VR games. All I know is if I ever manage to afford a good one, I'm makin sure to get all my bio breaks out before playing. Just to be safe.

CARRION was good. Bit short, but a good Metroid-vania kind of game. Somethin fun about creepin through the air vents, and freakin people out by chucking vent covers at them before doing an impression of a blender. Nom Nom Eat'em'up Yum.

To me, it almost feels too guided to be a true Metroid-vania. I'm not looking for puzzles to solve with new abilities, and I never feel like I'm hitting a wall I know I can move past. I basically feel as if it's always obvious where to go. The lack of a map kind of adds to that feel - I'm not poring over something, looking at what is still grey.

Are the levels always the same, or is there some procgen going on?


Dunno. Will probably replay it again at some point to get all the things.
As for there being no map... I'm fine with it, in this case. It kinda fits.
Metroid had a map, because 'in-game', Samus had a suit that was mapping things out.
Castlevania SOTN and similar had maps, because Alucard lived there so I could see it being him as remembering where things where...

But the CARRION ...blob..? Shoggoth? Thing? Knows where 'save' points are by growling for them, and they're indicated in a direction on the screen, but has no idea where it is, and probably doesn't care, since its in 'eat/survive' mode. Felt like it fit proper, in some weird way. However, that means you have to pay attention quite a bit, as some areas start looking 'samey'. There should have been a pheromone marker or sink a tendril into the wall so you could navigate on your own a bit better.

Death Stranding seems to be one of those games, where I don't want to see ANYTHING about it, to spoil anything. Story-rich, but weird gameplay/mechanics. And normally, spoilers don't really bother me if its something I won't ever bother with, like some movies and such.

Ah, FMV games, that takes me back an almost entirely shitty period of gaming history.

Uh.. there's a pack of Wing Commander/Privateer/Command & Conquer fans out back.. mumbled something about checking if you were alone or had company. That sure is a lot of pitchforks, folks..

I know what you're saying, but it feels like that era had some atrociously bad FMV games that were basically broken up movies. Even C&C 's video components were arguably pretty corny, enjoyable, but really corny. I enjoyed the game immensely back then, don't get me wrong, but it's a little painful (for me at least) to play/watch games from that era. I did get a couple of the 'classics' on Gog awhile back though, I need to run through Phantasmagoria and Tex Murphy:Under a Killing Moon. I remember being underwhelmed by Privateer, but it's been so long, maybe I'm thinking of some other game. Wing Commander 4... I don't think I ever had it back in the day, but I do have it now on Gog from some sale or another. I'll move it up the queue. I loved Wing Commander 1 and 2, but I played the floppy versions it was so long ago. I'm reasonably sure I started WC3 back when it was new and never finished it, I don't feel like it's a strong argument for FMV games, but it's been 20+ years.




Man... I remember the demo for Under a Killing Moon. Cheesy noir FMV that fit, and a neat 3d exploration engine.

Not sure why the trailer was poorly received. To me it just looks like a more recent iteration of the "Night Trap" concept.

Promoting toxic culture
Borderline sexism
Going all in on females needs males to save them, helpless cliches

But yes no idea why it was poorly received...

...And that sounds pretty much like when they tried to pull/censor the original Night Trap.
