Oddworld Stranger’s Wrath for PSN: Taking HD Remakes to the Next Level

'Long time no see! Since Gravity Crash Portable was launched we’ve kept our heads down while working on a bunch of stuff. During the summer we started working exclusively on Oddworld projects, and I’m here today to talk about the first title we announced: Oddworld Stranger’s Wrath.

You may have heard of this game before – it was originally released in March 2005, but we’re doing an HD remake for PSN. Recently there have been a whole raft of HD remakes coming to the PS3, and to be able to work on this project and take the definition of “HD Remake” to the next level has been a dream come true.'

Amazing what they can do with the ps3.

Is there anything the ps3 can't do?

@Ahmedz seriously not everyone wants that i prefer the texting its more reliable.

@ Scar - How is texting more reliable than directly speaking to someone over a mic?

SasanovaS19872713d ago

cus he doesnt feel like listening to whiney bches complaining about call of duty kill streaks and halo physics? or maybe he doesnt want to talk over the guy thats arguing how hes less of a nerd then the other guy? maybe il just send u a txt and stop there

Texting more reliable? Come on son, you're kidding yourself. I can't tell you how many times i've been playing uncharted and I have to stop killing people and leave me wide open to answer a txt from one of my friends instead of having XGame chat, don't act like it's not needed, we all know it's a needed feature, it would make things so much easier. As far as i'm concerned, Party Chat is the only thing that Live has over PSN.
If there's Xgame chat you don't have to listen to those people, you can just chat with your friends.

Now we're talking!

I want these kind of remakes! >:D

TheLastGuardian2713d ago

Good job staying on topic. I'm looking forward to playing this game. It looks like they're doing alot more than just polishing.

Not interested, If I want to catch up with mates we just start up a Skype session. Gives a lot better control of access plus with vid can show each other what's going on on our screen.

Back on subject wooot this sounds great.

Really glad to see this. I had an original Xbox but never picked this up. Good to see we are getting a really well made and upgraded version.

Zachmo1822713d ago

Yea cause i'm just gonna stop in middle of the game to txt my friend which is playing a different game...Yea buddy that makes a whole lot of sense. To the guy below its cross game chat so you won't be hearing people stupid shit.

How can they do this and completely screw up the PC version on release, I hope they patch Strangers soon on PC, people are wanting refunds and steam isn't allowing refunds yet.

Darkfocus2713d ago

they're patching it with the same upgrades the ps3 has when there done. They've already posted about it.

jashmister2713d ago

I have been following them myself waiting for a patch so I can play the game I bought. im not too impatient but why did they even sell this when they will do a large upgrade in a few months anyway it seems a waste of time if this acts as a preorder in the end.
I don't even care about the PS3 HD version i just want to play it.

@ murderdolls

maybe because texting has no issues with voice quality. there are times where peoples voices will cut out. or the battery is dead and its charging. and not alot of prople have mics on ps3. except all the people on my friends list.

blackburn52713d ago (Edited 2713d ago )

Sigh. *looks at PS3 game list* I have so many choices and sacrifices to make regarding the PS3 game line up. I seriously wish they spread ithe release dates a little thinner. In the first 3 months I have at least 12 games including PSN and Move games to choose from. It really is kind of overwhelming. @ jwk94 I think most of us really don't care that much about cross game chatting on the PS3 . It would be nice to have it as an option but everyone has to stop acting like it is some super advantage that makes your console superior. There are many things we would like them to improve on the PS3 that are more important e.g. a better web browser or firefox or google support

jay22713d ago (Edited 2713d ago )

At the end of the day, it's ashame that Sony had to take this route due to costs. Not that I haven't brought any of the remakes, I've got the GOW 1.2, going for Splinter cell, M.K, ICO, Maybe tombraider although I can run these games thanks to my launch unit.


scar202713d ago

Wait theres a mk remake?
