The Guardian Legend Reborn

This is, without a doubt the one game that needs to be remade for current or next generation.

Allow me to explain.
For those of you that are over the age of 30, you may remember an 'under the radar' title that was beyond awesome. A game that combined the adventure/exploration of The Legend of Zelda with the twitch space shooter gameplay of Zanac to form one of the best gaming experiences I've ever had the pleasure of playing.

That game is The Guardian Legend.

If you've never played this game, you have no idea what you're missing. The story was simple; you have to stop a space station full of alien lifeforms from colliding with Earth, and the only way to do this is to engage the self destruct sequence of the station. Of course, the keys to do this are scattered throughout several levels of play. Several difficult, painful, throw-your-controller-at-the-s creen levels of play.

It was so damn awesome.

I've seen several remakes in the past decade or so that made me stop and wonder "How the hell did that merit a remake?". Games like Return to Castle Wolfenstein, Splatterhouse, and Warhawk (Warhawk, really?!). Let's finally do one right, do one that would be of benefit to the gamer. I think it's honestly a no-brainer.

Look, we all like good games, right? It's why websites like this exist. The original developer for TGL was Compile. Well, they're not around anymore, and I'm not really sure who owns the rights to this fabulous game, but it's high time that we, the gamers, spoke out. Let the movement begin! Post, troll, flame, and whine!

Create us a new Guardian Legend!

Wolfenstein has an important FPS heritage, even though the remakes don't do it justice.

"Warhawk (Warhawk, really?!)"

Well I can't say I ever played the original so I can't comment on it's quality but I'm VERY glad they did a remake. Warhawk on PS3 kept me playing online for a looooong time; brilliant game and it's successor, Starhawk, is still a party favourite when friends are round.

If people like the game as much as you do, there is a possibility of it returning again. I didn't expect Duck Tales to return at all and yet now it just so happened to come out of nowhere. A new generation of gamers will get a chance to enjoy old school game, with a nice HD shine put on it.

Imagine waiting 14 years to play this. The game isn't good.

anast58m ago(Edited 56m ago)

I maxed the free trail when it was out. I thought the combat was horrible and the graphics. It felt cheap and janky to me. And I would have thought they would have overhauled the game by now.

It’s a good game but it’s been out so long it’s hard to enjoy past content when you don’t get to experience it when it comes out. MMO’s are best played in the first couple years imo or at least the first 5 but 14 years later you will level up and go to newer end game stuff and skip a ton of content or bypass it fast as you can. It’s just nowhere near the same playing it towards the end of its life instead of experiencing everything as it releases.

There is this point too. It makes sense.

The game has been around for 14 years.14 successful years and still going strong. You just sound bitter.

anast54m ago

I don't judge a game on how many people like it. I think for myself. Candy Crush sucks and it is still going strong. You will need to, at minimum, come up with a decent argument instead of guessing how people feel.

"I don't judge a game on how many people like it."

If I recall correctly, you were always complaining about how Friday The 13th had a low player count and that reflects how TCM was going to be poor.

Kind of sounds like you judge games based on how many people like it.

This game is assss, i guess this is their cope for phil selling them up the river for a nickle.

It'll take another 14 years to pay back the investment in getting the game to run for the 2 people left on xbox. I guess that's why they have to pay for gold just to play the game. Xbox is the worst place to play FF14.

Hopefully maintaining the xbox version doesn't take money that could have been better spent on the game itself.

Never played it, but this is the first I've heard any bad about it (after ARR, anyway). My understanding is that it's a great game and the article does mention that it even outpaced WoW. Not a small feat.

It's pricier on Xbox though, which is unfortunate, but at the end of the day, if you've waited this long, you'll have hundreds of hours of content upfront and that's a pretty good thing.

FUCK YES

one day after my bday too I CANT WAIT

FullmetalRoyale2h ago

Oh, nice! Been hoping this would drop on other platforms.

DarXyde3h ago(Edited 3h ago)

Whoa, even Shin Megami Tensei is multiplatform now?

Times are really changing. Definitely a fantastic series.

gerbintosh1h ago(Edited 1h ago)

If you mean this game, then yes. However most, if not all, of the Shin Megami Tensei games were released on the PS in the past. Technically the series went multiplat when they released on the Switch

I'm speaking more broadly about the SMT games. A number of the recent entries are exclusive to Nintendo. Might also be worth mentioning TMS (Tokyo Mirage Sessions).
