I'm glad Wesker is on the list...even though Capcom screwed up his character in RE5. I miss the working-behind-scenes mastermind scientist who's main goal was collecting viruses and being one step ahead of the other characters. Not the CRAZY I-WANT-TO-TAKE-OVER-THE-WORLD comic-book-villain from RE5. :/
It depends on the game, tbh. If it's a game set in the real world, I don't mind seeing in-game advertising because it helps add to the immersion and to the realism of the game. It makes you truly believe you are playing in ~our world~. But if the game is set in an alternate world/universe, I don't really want to see a McDonalds ad popping up somewhere or a Burger King as the local inn.
To be fair, Sephiroth is one of the most memorable villains in gaming, if only because he appeared in one of the most memorable RPGs in gaming. It's no wonder he shows up on so many "Top 10" lists. He's as iconic as Wesker from Resident Evil or Bowser from Mario Bros...yet nobody complains when they keep popping up on lists. (Though I would argue Sephiroth was a better villain when we knew LESS about him. Learning more about his backstory in Crisis Core and ...
Lol at Liu Kang being the leader of the pirates. :D
Yeah, I'm wondering what "smooth edges" and "spiffy textures" the reviewers are talking about. It looks practically the same as it did on the Gamecube. It's hardly the "strongest" HD remake out there, and I think it's an insult to other developers who actually put time and effort into their HD remakes to say that RE4 tops them. :/
Yep, it's an upscaling. Not a complete HD remake. The game doesn't look "bad" per se. But there is practically no difference in the original Gamecube's appearance and the appearance of the "HD remake". I even noticed the jaggies on character models and objects hadn't been smoothed out. :/
I must admit, I'm surprised so many reviewers are giving RE4 HD such a high score. Resident Evil 4 is an amazing game, no doubt. But considering how lazy this port is, I don't think it deserves the high scores that its getting. It gives people the wrong impression that this is a HD remake that is as good as all the other HD remakes that have actual effort put in them. ...The strange thing is, reviews absolutely BLASTED the Mortal Kombat HD Collection for being a simpl...
I know they weren't allowed to use Pierce Brosnan and Sean Bean's faces for this game, but I can't help but still be disappointed about that. It just doesn't feel...right. If that makes any sense. Trevelyan was one of my favorite game/movie characters when I was little, and it really takes the fun out of it when he is no longer Sean Bean in a tacky ninja outfit spouting off silly British sayings in a posh English accent. They could have at least made 006 look ...
Why do you hate him though?
MY BODY IS READY!
To be fair, even earlier FF games have had pop/ballad-pop songs as their theme songs (Eyes on Me, Melodies of Life, 1000 Words, Redemption, etc) It's just that those songs were written FOR their respective games, so they suited the theme of the game nicely and added emotional impact to the scenes they were in (e.g. Eyes on Me playing through Squall and Rinoa's discussion in the Ragnarok). Whereas recent FF theme songs (particularly My Hands) seem to ...
I wouldn't be surprised if they had to add that because too many people were confused as to whether or not they could play the 3DS in 2D. Whenever I walked into EB Games, sometimes I'd see someone asking if the 3DS could show things in 2D.
NGL, when I first saw the title on Kotaku I thought it was an Ab Fab video game adaptation too. A part of me is slightly disappointed it isn't. :O
And maybe even include side-missions where Stewie and Brian go on epic adventures around the world (or through time). :D
I like that Batman doesn't kill his enemies...if only because it makes him just as insane as the very villains he fights against. He KNOWS they can escape Arkham Asylum whenever they want, he KNOWS they will go on a killing rampage every time they escape, and he KNOWS families' lives will be destroyed (just like his was) whenever the villains are free in the city. The only way to stop the villains for good is to either kill them or permanently injure them, yet Batman...
I never noticed it until now...but the wings on Rinoa's back kinda look like feet. :/
I wonder if killing the villains might be an available option in the game. Like, it might end in a "Game Over" (because Batman isn't allowed to kill anyone), but it would still be pretty cool just to be able to kill Gotham's biggest baddies even for a moment. ....or maybe I'm just weird. :o
I don't really understand what the councilor's problem is. Like, the councilor said it was similar to a "massage parlour"...but why? He didn't really clarify his statement, and the owners of the bar have made it clear that it's just a gaming-related bar with no scantily clad waitresses or anything like that. So where did the councilor get the idea from that it's an adult oriented place? (With that being said, I'm surprised they built it right...
I'll be honest, I don't exactly know who she is. What has she done?
"Uncharted 3: Drake's Fortune" You mean Drake's Deception. :)
