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.

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. :/

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

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)

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?

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.

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
Going all in on females needs males to save them, helpless cliches
But yes no idea why it was poorly received...
