Today's Okami HD remaster news and the recent Shadow of the Colossus remaster announcement bring an old topic back into the light.
I'm all for remasters as long as they're done well. The MGS HD Collection was stellar.
Well I can definitively say that Okami HD was glorious. Imagine a game that plays like a living and breathing painting, now vastly improved with sharper and bolder colours. Bigger collections have the added benefit of tying multiple stories and experiences into one narrative.
Every rerelease is worth it to the people it appeals to
What recent Shadow of the Colossus remaster? The game got remastered 7 years ago on PS3. There is a upcoming Shadow of the Colossus remake if that's what you're talking about. People really need to understand the basic differences between remakes and remasters and not group them all under one term in the rerelease umbrella.
What's the difference? The game is the same.
Seriously? 😒 A remake of a title starts from scratch and uses new assets built from the ground up which requires more work. A remaster of a title takes the existing assets and just increases the resolution and possibly framerate. How do you not know something so basic? Do you think remakes & remasters of movies are the same thing too?
God, it stuffs me how some people don't realize the difference between the two...
I couldn't agree more. It still baffles me to this day that most people do not understand the difference. I'm for both but would love to see some more remakes. MGS1, MGS3, Eternal darkness, Silent Hill 2, and Clock Tower, just to name a few
If it's using the same engine and just adding updated 3D models, that hardly counts as being a true remake. Shadow is a very well done remaster.
Dragons Dogma Dark Arisen is a great example of this!
that is a no-brainer: no hd remasters are worth the money, time or download.
I determine that personally. You will all wait for my opinion and then you make a purchase based on my brilliant word.
Not pricing it at full standard game prices would be a good start.
Nintendo ain't gonna drop the price of their rereleases
As long as it's done right and worthwhile games are chosen to be remastered.
I've been waiting for Okami to come tp the ps4, bought it on ps2, Wii, ps3 and soon ps4 if they put it on on ps5 I'll buy it too
Depends on the game and price. Capcom has been putting out their remasters at a reasonable price.
It is worth it if you have not played it and if you only own the current generation hardware and if you don't plan on pirating the software and play it using an emulator.
