Capcom's Dead Rising remasters are now dated, thanks to the Xbox Store which also provided screenshots and size info.
Enough with these remasters. Create some new games with new ideas!
Why not both?
Remasters are a safer bet against making a profit than a new IP. At least that's what suits who don't really play games think.
And to clarify: when I use "suits who don't play games" I mean games when they weren't engineered towards solely being about revenue. When games offered options and features instead of DLC. The games "Suits" or business people play today are the post-DLC types of games as they attempt to find balance for microtransactions. The fostered atmosphere where games are wholly transitory, limited replay value, entertainment rather than something with honest replay value.
Seriously, the people who have huge problems with remasters are just being hyperbolic. Every generation, especially the last one, has had TONS of remastered games. And the studios that make these games, like Bluepoint, are specifically designed to reverse-engineer old games. No less new IPs are being created as a result of this. It's literally just an option. More jobs; more available games.
People need to focus on tackling real problems in games, like micro-transactions. Attacking remasters just makes people like petty and unreasonable.
I wouldn't say last gen had "tons" of remasters... we certainly didn't have this many at this state in the life cycle of last gen consoles.
To be fair fare as well, last gen was the big transition into HD the just from the graphics we saw on Ps2 and Xbox was massive and the jump in resolution.
This gen we are getting remasters of games that barely do anything. a slight brush up from upscaled 1080p to native 10p and if we are lucky an upgrade to 60fps.
my big problem is not that we are getting remasters it's the type of games that are getting remastered.
there is a massive catalogue of old xbox 1 and ps2 games that could bennefit hugely from being truely remastered. but half the games we are getting don't really deserve it but of course, thats just my opinion. either way it feels like the out put of new IP's is a lot less compared to last gen and the one before and one cannot help but think part of this is because of the trend we have now of just remastering everything from last gen.
anyway, one thing I do believe is that for those gamers who complain so much about them, please just don't buy any. our industry is driven by money, nothing else. publishers wouldn't be making all these remasters if they didn't think there was money to be made. trust me, they have done the math.
all the complaining so far has not stopped the trend. Just stop buying the crap.. same goes for dlc.
"Why not both?"
Well ideally yea dude of course why not both but we don't live in a world with a infinite amount of resources and game developers so they end up making remasters/sequels and less of new IP. That's all Aurenar said!
Yeah id rather a new game then play this one again with a new coat of paint.
Now if it is a TRUE remaster with new things and improvements I would be interested.
I don't mind remasters.
Not like someone is forcing you to buy, and someone out their keeps buying these that's why companies keeps making them.
edit: I do mind when they're 60$ like Skyrim. wtf
Normally I would agree with you, but in this case DR1 is one of those special games that was in desperate need for a remaster and I'm glad we are getting one.
Let's face it, there's demand for remasters and as long as people keep buying them, remasters will never go away.
Every game is "special" to someone. You're the first person I'm aware of that has a special fondness for DR1. I'm not disagreeing -I'm just saying that it's no more special to you than anyone's favourite game is to them.
Remaster them all; just don't buy it if it's not "special" to you. I love a well done remaster.
@BrianOblivion, atleast try to make some sense.
Which part is confusing to you?
At least Capcom has survival-horror down pat. I'm mortified thinking about what they've become and fear they will not be around much longer if they have to remaster everything just to survive.
Why is it always the uneducated that make such statements? Not only are they making BOTH, the team remastering it was NEVER going to make the sequels or a new game. Their job was to transfer, not make a new game.
Do you think Star Wars being remastered in 4K is delaying an hindering the new Star Wars films?
Maybe, JUST maybe, you better actually read WHAT a port is, how its made etc as their seems to be this ingnorant myth going on that making a remaster is basically the same as making a game, and we've some how missed the chance to get a new game, due to a remaster.
Show me the proof and I'll agree, but MOST like 99% of the users that post this, don't have much information on exact what a port is, how its made, how much it cost etc. IF ANYTHING those remasters are PAYING for the new games you are even asking for.
Last gen, Capcom ported RE1,RE2,REZero,REIII, RECV etc.....we still got RE5.6, Revelations 1 and 2, Operation Raccoon CIty etc. THUS one can argue, Capcoms ports PAY for new developments. Soooooooo don't make more money?
Capcom making money means you get your new game bud. Seriously read how the process is done. Your lack of examples, proof, supporting evidence etc only further shows just how uneducated MOST gamers are in the industry. With games as transparent as they are , its strange to see a communty as clueless as to the process of gaming making as in the industry.
With music, film etc, most know the directors, producers, process etc of the making of such works, with gaming....we have this LARGE gap from what the hardcore gamer knows, compared to the "normal gamer" where in Film and Music, I just don't think that gap is as large.
How many music fans or film fans have you EVER heard say "Enough with these (restorations of films or best of albums) create new (Film, music)" ???
There is a new game coming called dead rising 4
They are doing both if you look!
i hope the time limit is removed
Well, you don't have to buy them. No one is forcing you to.
if you want to support new games over remasters then i suggest getting recore instead as it comes out the same day
On the same day of ReCore..That's not good. The poor game already has low hype, but at least it's something different
Ironically both games are produced by Keiji Inafune.
It is a great time to be a fan of the series.
Can't wait for Dead Rising 4, I'm a big fan of Frank West! Exoskeleton looks sick.
I'm so glad they're coming to PS4 so I get to experience these games :)
Haven't played this series, may pick it up if the price is right.
Maybe I'm uninformed, but isn't 8GB incredibly small for a remastered collection of 2 whole games and a stand alone expansion pack thing? Makes me wonder how well these remasters will actually turn out.
Remember that these are games made for the Xbox 360...
Yeah and Xbox 360 used dvd's which could hold up to 9GB of data on the disk. In this gen, all game data is installed to the hard drive even if you have a disk, so assuming the first 2 games took up 4GB each on the disk out of 9, that's 8GB and then that's not counting the standalone expansion.
8GB for this remaster collection seems really small and basic for what you're getting. Might end up being just 1080p ports with no other enhancements.
Hell, just look at DOA 5 last round, a last gen game that fit on one disc on 360 and the remaster on ps4/Xbox one is 10GB and that's a pretty basic remaster as is anyways. Just ONE game.
wow not much of a remaster i thought they would have dont a better job on off the records it doesnt look better or worse than the pc version well except for the res which i play it on 1440p but anyway i really do hope they make it look at least a little better.
Haven't played this series. Will try this out.
I'm tired of Capcom releasing these stupid remasters. Just make your games backwards compatible and focus on making NEW games. Tired of these game companies milking fans.
No. They can't make all their games BC as clearly some are coming to PS4 and PC.
Also why? They are also making new games so where did you come up with this being an either or?
Why on earth do people think making a remaster, means they are not making a new game? You know not of Dead Rising 4? LMFAO!
So you think Star Wars being done in 4K is stopping a new film from happening? Slowly think about that bud.
I think maybe you better look up what a remaster is.....
Remake n64 and playstation games. Not 360/ps3 games that look good enough already. So lazy
I think you mean Remake N64/PS1 games - those are too old for a "simple" remaster...
I mean.. could you imagine playing something like "South Park 64" or "Blasto" with cleaner pixels only? LOL
Offtopic: I think you might enjoy this (I sure did) - http://gearburn.com/2014/07...
Couple of those I want to play
yeah, but games like Zelda OOT, was remade/remastered really good for 3ds. I mean there is ZERO reason to remaster a game on 360/PC because PC games are already bc, 360 games can easily be Backwards compatible. I can understand remastering ps3 games due to PS4 lacking BC though.
Resident evil says hi ;)
The original reason I bought a 360 was Dead Rising such a fun game. I loved that once you got zombie Genocider you could get the mega blaster which made boss fights so much easier. So sad that all of these achievements were locked into my original offline profile. I'm not sure if PS3 owners ever got this one but if you missed out on it i'm glad you get a chance to enjoy it now.
So will this remasters only get digital release or a physical disc release to?
Dead Rising 1 was excellent.
Loved this game back in the day but I remember even back then thinking that the controls were clunky so I do wonder just how well this game has aged. Will deffo look to play it again though, still my fave in the series, I loved the bosses in this game, completely batshit crazy.
Enjoyed DR2, might get DR1 and Off the Record.
This is a great remaster for people that never owned a 360. Dead rising 1 is in my top 10 of all time. Frank west is easily the best protagonist in the series and I'm glad he's returning to dr4.
God so sick of remasters....I suppose every new console will be remastering remastered games from now on instead of coming up with new ideas. Reboot, reboot, reboot!
They're already making a sequel so what difference would it make if they didn't remaster it?
The difference would be diverting all resources used on a remaster toward investment on a better sequel. But we'd never know how much more could be done because we're content with what we get.
On a side note companies can make a hundred remasters a year that might float your boat but it don't float mine. I don't spend hundreds of dollars on a console to play repainted old games. But that's just me.
