"Remember Me" holds the Key to Capcom's Future

Welcome to my first journal entry of the new year. Let's focus on Japanese gaming, and one company in particular, Capcom.

There used to be a time (8-bit, 16-bit, and 32-bit gaming eras to be exact), when Japanese games were vehicles of innovation which enabled them to achieve great success not only overseas, but in the lucrative and much sort after North American gaming market as well.

Fast forward a few years to now, and we find a time where Japanese game publishers struggle to come up with innovative ideas for their aging franchises. And even though these games continue to sell well in foreign lands, they are losing their overall acceptance and appreciation from many gamers in North America.

So, it is no surprise that Capcom the creator of such classics as "Bionic Commando", and "Resident Evil" is also struggling to regain their footing in the US gaming market. (Dev, Industry, PC, PS3, Remember Me, Xbox 360)

That game actually look great, I hope it does well.

I have a funny feeling that Remember Me might turn out to be another Brink or WET, aka a game that looks great in previews but doesn't pull it off in the final product...

Gameplay looks a lot like Uncharted- running around platforming whilst bits n pieces break off, especially the helicopter chase scene gameplay that has been posted all over youtube.

However, considering it's Capcom and how they have chose to screw me over at almost every opportunity this generation with bastardising the things I love, I will buy and enjoy this game pre-owned. It's a shame for you Capcom as this game does look decent enough, where I would have actually made it a day 1 purchase if it wasn't for your shitty attitude.

I see some free running elements in this... May turn out to be "memorable".

Makes me want Mirror's Edge 2 even more.

This game looks promising, but too little has been shown IMO. If it's open world, then it'd be worth it.

The problem I have with Capcom isn't their development teams but their shady business practices. They kill nearly every game they launch in the market. I was extremely pumped up for 'tekken vs street fighter', but the disc locked characters was a huge deal breaker for me.

That was actually Street FighterXTekken. TekkenXStreetfighter is a completely different game that hasn't been released yet. It's made by Namco and they have said it will contain no disc locked content. So don't let Capcom sway your mind in that game cause they really have nothing to do with it.
