It seems that HD collections are all the rage these days, with Capcom’s own Devil May Cry HD Collection currently on sale during the PlayStation All-Stars Heritage Sale on the PlayStation Network. - PSLS
... they'd probably half-ass it anyway. If you're gonna do HD-ports/remakes, you need to make them the best you can. We know Capcom is too lazy and too greedy to really put in the effort to do so. Sadly.
Yi-Long No doubt to make HD collection 1.5 than release another to charge $39.99 twice Capcom use to be all about gamers than this gen happened along with DLC Capcom fanboys still defend them no matter what, it's just wrong but I guess all fanboys are bad
@showtimefolks I completely agree with your statement about this being Capcom's worst generation of games - and it's been such a long gen too. Capcom used to really mean something to me as far back as Mega Man 1.
I dont want a shi**y hd remake like RE4 from cRapcom. Why they dont just do it the right way.. I mean we want new Onimusha not the old ones. We played it and we like it but thats enough money grabbers. We want a new game.
Was RE4 on PS3 poor? I kind of have it on my radar (but, in reality, no time to play...).
Yeah definitely disappointing.
Booo you guys suck!
Man I played the hell out of Onimusha 3 back in the day.
Same here, first game in the series I beat.
So that means another episode is even more unlileky ? Really sad....
I still have all my copies :p Mind you, was just staring Oni1 when my BC PS3 died on me :(
Where can i go to complain to capcom about this? This is literally the last HD collection i need (even though there are still some i want). At this point i dont even care if they split it into 2 collections i'd still buy it.
They're concerned that it wont sell enough to justify the cost of making the collection. Could be worse; they could have gotten NT to make reboot. A modern-era, Euro-trash reboot...
I know they are concerned about it not selling, but people actually want this. Touching up a ps2 game cant be that expensive and only a couple hundred thousand in sales should be enough to turn a profit (i'm basing this off other HD collections). I'd like them to have bluepoint games, sanzaru, or idol minds do the work.
You're also talking about five PS2 titles where most collections have been three or less. And still, at this point I'm very much concerned with Capcom's ability to simply make a game. And not just them. Much of the industry seems unable to move past PS2 era mechanics, while also hemming themselves in with real world physics game engines and "ascetics" which boils down to gritty and grungy dilapidated post-apocalyptic art styles. Edit: And yes, Konami did and are doing MGS with boo-ku games including a couple SNES titles, but Onimusha is not MGS.
I thought it was only 4 titles? Onimusha (the genma version), 2, 3 and DOD, or are you also including blade warriors? I also think capcom is having trouble making games this gen which is why i want this hd collection before they completely go off their rockers lol.
Believe it or not, there was a gameboy advance Onimusha game called, Onimusha Tactics. I played it a long time ago and it was pretty good for a gameboy Onimusha game. It's gameplay is similar to Final Fantasy Tactics and it did have Ekei, Kotaro, and Magoichi in it from Onimusha 2.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Added a game. And yes, Capcom has indeed to all facts lost it. despite all the bickering between DMC "fans" that train wreak was obvious. Regardless of the job Ninja Theory did, which was good but not up to par of a DMC game. And Capcom repaid them by throwing them under the bus for doing the exact job they asked from them, as well as the fans who were literally screaming that they didn't want the game that was being shown. And like Capcom I haven't a clue as to how they're going to regain gamer confidence.
oh bummer... -_-
I still have the entire PS2 collection and a PS2 slim if I want to play them.
That's a shame. I was looking forward to rebuying more of my games.
and replaying them.
Screw them, I stared DoD a couple months ago.
Capcom really don't seem to understand when people are trying to give them money do they? I didn't mind resi til I played the demos for 6 but I think we're likely to get resi in space before a decent new Onimusha.
Nope, they'd rather spend development money on DLC for crap games no one wants.
meh.. I expected whole new game
Not surprised, but it'd still be nice, especially if they put controls from 3 back in 1 and 2.
please give me a new game instead.. they already released an updated Genma Onimusha on first Xbox now we only want a new good episode like the first 3 were.
Onimusha was one of the best series on the PS2. I would gladly buy an HD remake. I thought those games were so well laid out, and the scripts weren't half bad either. It would stand tall alongside my Metal Gear collection!
Amidst all the re-selling of our old games, Onimusha and GTA were the 2 HD collections I would have gladly paid money for. We get neither.
Capcom sucked this gen for not making onimusha and getting lazy developing their own games instead giving them to noobs who know nothing about game development.
FFS, Please give life to these games again!! I LOVED the first Onimusha and second Onimusha!
Well then let's see all the shit you do have planned, Crapcon. I'd love to see it.
From the article, " You may not realize, but these HD remakes are actually an enormous and costly undertaking, and redoing all five games you listed would be an extraordinary feat." I'm calling bulls**t on this. They really meant to say that the fanbase isn't as big compared to our other series, so we're going to scrap this series and throw potential customers aside. I'm very disappointed to hear this. Onimusha was one of the greatest games to hit last gen.
Onimusha is one series I still don't understand not making the transition to this current gen. They had a good universe, showed they could branch out of it like they did in Dawn of Dreams, and had a good following. I enjoyed all of them and would like to replay them. The opening cg for Onimusha 3 is still my favorite cg I have ever seen in any game opening. If they don't release them HD, then just release them as PS2 classics. Though I would really like to have the trophies for them.
$20 says a onimusha hd collection would outsell the new dmc easily, capcom and square 2 really good developers last gen that just went downhill this gen. Square hasn't had a hit with any of their non western ips. I will give capcom credit for dragons dogma, it's the only game they released this gen i really like, okay 2 okami.
