RipTen: "I recently had the opportunity to play X-Men Arcade on Xbox Live and it instantly brought back memories of dumping quarters by the handful into arcade machines when I was a kid. The nostalgia was awesome, at least for a moment . . ."
Depends on the game really. Some games are just so good that even the most faithful remake will be shot down by fans and reviewers. Look at what happened to Goldeneye. Remaking such a monstrous game on an incapable console was one of the worst mistakes this gen.
I bought MK2 off of PSN (for $5)and have put over 100 hrs into it.
I'm waiting for Crash Bash on PSN
X-Men Arcade - Doing it wrong Monkey Island: Special Edition - doing it right If you're gonna charge $10 for an old game - at least make it worth our time and money.
the way to do it imo is street fighter 2 hd remix . Actually make a remix 2d or 3d in hd of the game with extra features , and yet offer the original as well .
Monkey Island SE worth the money, it's not just the old game, it have some cool features, voice acting, new graphics... And you can change between the New version to the original one anytime.
then it's done the same way as sf2 hd remix ... good to know
GE did well, even among critics... Can some one snap another bubble of this guy?
Oh yeah take a bubble from me just because you dont agree. I swear the censorship on this site is unbelievable. Its like N4G was made by Stalin and Lenin. In order for anyone to NOT lose bubbles around here, they have to be as neutral as those aliens from futurama. Well you know what? Im not neutral. Im a human being and I have an opinion and im not afriad to say it. Take my damn bubbles. You cant take them all and I will continue to post not matter what because if I stop, communism wins and I will not let that happen.
Sure. It just sux to be overcharged. I got X-men free and I'm glad I did. Good game but not worth $10. Consoles overcharge for classics. On the PC they are cheap.
I like the classics but they should be less money.
Yeah.. Nintendo just brought out SM All-Stars as a disc based game again. Stupidly expensive.
Sure as hell is, I love my classics :D
'Bringing back the classics really worth it' yes as long it keeps its original content intact and its cheap like indy dev games.
i like to buy old games, makes me feel like i did when i was 10 but usually ill wait till they go on sale. almost all the psn titles i buy ill get at 50% off. X-Men arcade was a huge part of my quarter revenue when at the local mini golf course, but i can wait 3 months when it will be 5 dollars for some random sale.
It are, laddy. It are.
I would have got the Xmen game if it was $5, the $10 price seems a bit much.
Yes, but the price tags are crazy for them!
Let me think........... hhhhhhhmmmmmmmmmmmmm Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3= over 1200 online fights, approx 585 wins 615 losses, it was worth every single one of the 400 MSP i paid for it. Streets of Rage 2= Played offline to completion 15 times, online 20+ times, again worth every point. Duke Nukem 3D....... No brainer, worth it easily. Rez HD...... countless hours put in to it, excellent. Castlevania: SOTN...... Superb..!!!!!! All Sonic Sega Megadrive/Genesis games..... are you kidding me? well worth it and only 400 points each too. Throw in a sprinkle of Double Dragon, Soul Calibur, Golden Axe, and Ikaruga ect ect ect and i would say HELL YEAH, of course classics are worth it.
Got to judge them all individually - Some games I 'loved' back in the day like CRAZY TAXI, but I now find it an unplayable bore. Then we have the SLY COOPER collection which I can't put down.
A) dont like it? Dont buy it. B) if the writer would have done even a little research, he would have known that konami was legally prevented from updating the game because of xmen rights issues. It wasnt laziness. C) "updating to present day graphics" isnt a cure all. The turtles in time may be updated but the game itself is the same.
I want to see obscure games like Ninja Gaden the Arcade game, that game was dope, how about Fighting Street, on live or psn how about the old school WWF Arcade game when it had Ultimate Warrior Hulk Hogan, Earth Quick, Mr Perfect, Jake The Snake, and you had to face the Road Warriors these were classic arcade games when I was growing up
wwf wrestle fest is the game that you are describing, it is a good game and I still play it on mame from time to time, also another good wrestling game is its predecessor called wwf superstars. Fighting street is actually street fighter, I would also like to see ninja gaiden on consoles. Though the price needs to be no more than $5 for arcade ports unless extra content is added to justify a price more than $5.
Thanks for the heads up. I used to play both the WWF ones, there was one before that though it had Macho Man in it.
@giovonni The arcade game called wwf superstars had macho man in it, the last match in the game you would have to defeat a tag team comprised of andre the giant and the million dollar man ted debiase.
I never really made it that far, it's so far back I can't recall it. I would love to see that game again, bring back classic Wrestling
Only one short thing needed to say about this, "Depends on the classic"
