I love how the 3DS version looks, especially the eerie redness of Termina Field. But I'm not a fan of the moon's new design. It's wider nose and big eyes make it look kinda goofy imo.
I'm surprised people still don't get that Jenova was Sephiroth's bitch in the game. It's like the watched the Nibelheim flashback and nothing else. Sure, the mistranslations can make certain parts of the game difficult to follow, but I thought it was made pretty obvious that Sephiroth (not Jenova) is the one in control. Hell, Sephiroth spent most of the game destroying pieces of Jenova's main body (they were the Jenova bosses the player battled) and trying...
I liked Sunshine, but I would prefer a Super Mario 64 sequel. I loved the controls, the open-levels, the exploration, etc. It would be amazing to see that sort of game nowadays, but on a MUCH larger scale.
I kinda like the eye. Apparently all the bosses have Majora's eye on them now, so I think it's supposed to represent Majora's possession over the bosses. A couple of sites have mentioned that the eye makes this battle a bit more difficult too, because it's a smaller 'weak spot' instead of Odolwa's entire body being a weak spot. Apparently all of the boss battles have been slightly altered so that they are more challenging and there is more strategy...
Oh man, Nemesis scared the crap out of me when I was a kid. I remember almost having a heart-attack when I realized he could follow you through doors.
My advice would be to avoid fighting as many zombies as you can, and conserve as much ammo and health items as possible. You're going to need them for the more difficult enemies that show up later in the game :)
It seems to be showing up at the front of the store now. Though I was disappointed to discover we have to pay $30 for it :(
Journey isn't a very accessible game for newcomers imo. The lack of a proper story or specific goals might be off-putting to people who already don't 'get' gaming. I've also found that a lot of non-gamers have trouble with 3D games because of the controls. They can't get their heads around moving their character through a 3D space AND controlling the camera AND performing multiple actions (opening doors, flicking through menu screens, toggling items, etc). It all becom...
The new control system is great imo. It doesn't make the game too easy, but it definitely makes controlling the characters feel more natural, and there are less instances where you'll be trying to turn away from a zombie and accidentally run straight into it instead.
If I recall correctly, Wesker will also leave health items and helpful hints around the mansion for Chris. Barry will leave health items and weapons around the mansion for Jill.
I'm glad the door loading screens are still there (for nostalgic reason), but there should at least be the option to skip it for those who don't want to watch the door transition every time they open a door.
Have you played the RE1 remake before, or just the original? IMO the remake is definitely worth playing just to see the mansion and characters in gorgeous graphics.
This is a HD version of the Gamecube remake, not the original game. So the intro isn't the live-action one. It's the pre-rendered cutscene: http://n4g.com/news/1656843...
RIP. 44 is far too young to die.
I'm not a big fan of the moon's new design it looks a bit goofy now), but everything else looks amazing.
Final Fantasy VIII has my favorite OST in the series.
I remember being excited when the R18+ rating was finally brought into Australia, but it doesn't seem to have made much of a difference. Games are still being banned. :(
Naaw. Deku Link looks adorable.
Whenever it rained at my elementary school, we got to stay inside and play computer games during recess. I used to love rainy days because I could kick my friends' butts on Age of Empires.
