I was curious how they'd handle the demake version of combat & traversal on the iconic sky tracks. I see they did so by not recreating far enough in the game to show it off in action lol. Guess I kinda thought the point of these was to try to show how modern game mechanics would play out if developed on consoles of yore, but was at least a neat visual translation.

The purpose is just to create an art piece, I think the rest can be imagined. You can imagine the sky tracks as they show it, except they would obviously be running from one side of the screen to other, with you being able to jump or down to change tracks as obstacles/enemies show up on your existing track. Any point where your character travels in the third dimension can be shown as a scripted scene.

Lol you want them to recreate the entire game now geez...

IanTH633d ago (Edited 633d ago )

Not THAT extreme lol. I don't want to expound too much on things, as I feel like it comes off as me thumbing my nose at something someone did for fun in their free time, but it just feels like the more unique thing would have been to see how it could have worked as a game 30ish years ago.

If they just wanted to do art, I guess it feels like they could have done just a few still screens or something; the opening elevator ride to the clouds was certainly cool, though. I think it could have been interesting to see how they would have interpreted plasmids into sprite-form.

Still cool, mind. I think had it said something about an art piece, my expectations would have been properly set. I don't know, guess I just had seen things recently like the PS1 Bloodborne demake & had different expectations. Given I can't do any of it, they still get impressed props from me regardless lol.

I would seriously buy it just to collect it and try it out. Bioshock Infinite is one of my favorite games I would be curious to see how a Genesis port would look like or even a PS1 version.

Excellently demake of the introductory cutscene. Really captures the spirit while remaining true to the SNES’ limitations. Seems this is part of a series so will have to check the rest of their channel!

"And lastly, famous Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling helped to create the action-RPG’s setting. What’s really fascinating, though, is that the game was partially financed by taxpayers from Rhode Island (which allegedly lost the state millions of dollars). Yikes!"

1. Now infamous Schilling
2. No allegedly, it did. And they couldn't pay it back.
3. What really lost the money wasn't the SP release but the MMO they were working on. This was supposed to be an introduction into the MMO world.

I hate counting limited editions for these lists. I mean, they're made to be rare and expensive. It's far more interesting to hear about the NCAAs (even if most people know that one already) and the El Chavos than some massive hit that came with a $200 statue at retail.

Me too. Here's the best I can do:

El Chavo Kart $90.14
NCAA Football 14 $87.72
Spiderman: Edge of Time $75.94
Spiderman Web of Shadows $75.09
Spiderman: Shattered Dimensions $67.76

Wow, El Chavo Kart is not at all what I expected by the name. 100% looks like a Sackboy Kart game.

It's so odd that so many Spider-Man games are seemingly given lower print runs, even if they're not the best games.

Most Xbox games don’t hold as much value compared to other systems. Kameo, Blue Dragon, Last Remnant , and a handful or 2 of other games that I kept.

Fallout 3 and Bioshock Infinite are the rarest games of all time.


8 Best Games Set In A Multiverse

One of the biggest TV and movie tropes in the last decade has been the multiverse, the idea of exploring multiple dimensions to uncover alternate versions of existing ideas. From both a business and creative perspective, it makes sense why established franchises are shaking things up in this way.

However, there aren't many video games latching on to this trend, as rendering multiple worlds in real-time is a difficult feat and the medium is relatively young in comparison to its contemporaries, making crossover opportunities more difficult. Still, there are a few great titles that manage enough to overcome these challenges, and here are some of the best examples.

While I love someone mentioning Planescape, not really multiverse. Planes and dimensions, yes. But, they are typically their own locations and are very rarely tied to another 'verse' let alone another plane. The only things that are directly tied are the ethereal and material planes. Otherwise, they are dimensions created of their own design and goals by the creator/owner and not comprised of 'their own version of another dimension'.
