OMG. I'd forgotten about the MGS2 theme song. Yesss! I remember whenever it played at the title screen, I'd never press 'Start' until the whole song had played. :O
Also, I think Raziel's theme from Soul Reaver should be on the list. It's pretty amazing, especially 2 minutes in...
There are people who thought it was a full remake? o.O
I don't know if I'd call it "outdated" per se. It's just a different style of camera angle that works with a different style of game.
e.g. The fixed camera angles worked in the Lost in Nightmares DLC because it was a more slow-paced survival-oriented title, whereas the fixed camera wouldn't have worked in RE5 because the gameplay was more fast-paced and involved much more moving around and larger locations.
They could always give players the option to choose which camera angle they would prefer to use. The Lost in Nightmares DLC gave us the option, so at least Capcom haven't forgotten that the fixed camera angles exist.
I think she's one of those girls who fits into the "quirky good looking" category. She's not traditionally attractive. But she's attractive in an interesting way.
That's just imo.
"is it just me or are her eyes to big for her head."
She's always had big eyes. But piling on heaps of eyeliner and mascara makes them look freakish. She needs to hire a makeup artist who emphasizes her other features instead.
She's pretty. But she always wears the most unflattering makeup.
At least its not right in the middle of Africa. I don't know what Capcom were thinking there. "Hey guys, let's get the brightest most un-RE type of setting we can find! Outback Australia? Nah, not enough volcanoes. The middle of Africa? Perfect!"
"That doesn’t mean that the series will remain dormant forever though, since the studio has recently brought Tomb Raider back from the dead and its parent company, Eidos, made a big splash by releasing a new Deus: Ex game to critical acclaim just last month. "
That's actually a very good point. The original Deus Ex came out AGES ago, and Revolution is doing really well despite the series being all but forgotten about for years. Maybe there is hope for the Legacy...
I'm not surprised, tbh. It's Ayumi Hamasaki. Hasn't she had 30-something consecutive number 1 songs in Japan?
Yeah, that Witcher game is definitely the worst Facebook game I've ever seen. And Atari? What company is that? Probably some little-known dev who only makes indie games for mobile phones. /s
Seriously, do people even read articles anymore? Or do they just look at the pictures and think "Since I don't recognize them they must be some shitty Facebook game dev."
And Fatal Frame 4. I'm still upset about that one. :(
Hahaha. Oh IGN, you trolls.
I wonder why they didn't get a woman to do the mo-cap though? Wouldn't that make her easier to model in the game? :O
That's true. I try not to be judgy because I know women who have married men almost a foot taller than them. (hell, one of my mother's best friends in 5' and her husband is 6'3).
But I guess it just freaks me out that Serah not only looks young, but acts it as well. Like, there's nothing that really portrays her as anything over a young teen girl. She's so cutesy and frail and timid, it's hard to believe she is almost 20 (or is she over 20?) by FFX...
Yeah, I should have been clearer there. The added bits look promising, but the dialogue/melodrama still looks quite...well...dull. And that was part of FFXIII's problem imo. The story took itself far too seriously and it got boring for me. One of my favorite parts of the game was the theme park, because it broke up the constant angst with a little bit of humor and fun.
I know the plot was meant to be serious and the characters didn't have much time, but part of the o...
"have you heard of redemption?"
Yeah, it was a good song :D
Oh wait...that's not what you were talking about. :O
It still freaks me out how little/young Serah looks in comparison to Snow. She looks like she's his 13 year old sister.
With that being said, I want to get excited for this game. I really do. But I'm not seeing much difference between this an FFXIII, tbh. Sorry.
This might seem like a silly question, but does it come with MGS1?
Oh, I was mostly talking about sexualizing characters. Not character stereotypes in general.
Though I'd argue that the characters you mentioned (Drake, the Prince, Alan Wake, MaleShep) are idealized characters, rather than sexualized ones. They aren't created for the female gamers to fap to. Rather, they are created as the "ideal" image of a man. e.g. "Hey guys, this is the man you could be!"
Dante in Devil May Cry 3, or Chris Redf...
To be fair, it wasn't Leona Lewis' voice that was the problem. She's a good singer with a good voice. (And hell, it's not like most of the Japanese singers who sing the FF theme songs aren't the equivalent of Lewis in Japan anyway). It's the song itself that was the problem. My Hands wasn't written for FFXIII and the lyrics made that painfully obvious. It didn't have the same emotional impact as previous FF theme songs, because it wasn't written for the gam...
