I don't really see much point in this, isn't the current version already updated in some ways vs the original 2004 release? It will look better, but a Source 2 touch up would be much better, maybe it would take too long for a small team. Plus I heard from the S&box devs that they were lucky to get the build of Source 2 that they're now working with.

Maybe Valve isn't so forthcoming when it comes to sharing their engine. Shame because they're taking ages to do much with it themselves. Hopefully Source 2 has room for upgrades in terms of visuals at least, not that it looks bad in the least. It's just a bit disappointing considering they used to be on top when it came to interactivity and graphics.

I believe you are right about the Source 2 engine. Black Mesa remake powered by Source engine, even though third party, was fantastic but it did seem very dated at times.

We should be getting official products from Valve

Have to say it does look quite nice. Not a fan of frame generation though but can easily be turned off.

That suit looks amazing. We really do need a proper new valve game. They were front runners on creative innovative technology. That actually made a difference.

Playing HL2 for the first time and witnessing the animation and physics was literally stunning.

The sad thing is the physics and world interaction are still pretty good today, because hardly any other game bothers in those areas.

Samus is on the list. Personally I'd swap the Space Marines with either Grey Fox from MGS or the COG armor from Gears of War.

You’re right. Hiding at the bottom so I missed it

REDGUM143d ago

There's no Dead Space listed in here, WTF!

Sciurus_vulgaris142d ago (Edited 142d ago )

I’d take the Space Marine power armour off the list due to it not originating in a video game.

Bloodborne is a game I still restart and play every few months. I would welcome just a re release in 60fps with a visual upgrade. It's a perfect game. If I was king for a day I would include the randomizer mods because then it would be a kind of rogue like and I could play it forever.

Sure, ill take a sequel to all of these.
