I'll just wait and hope they make a full remake. As great as Code Veronica is, I won't be able to stomach tank controls.

Ah, so 1 Remake and 0 both got modern remasters.

 

As far as remakes, it sounds like 3 might be the next one. Probably the one that most needs to be brought up to speed now. Then hopefully they do 4 after that. For obvious reasons. Then I'm sure the revived interest will die off and Capcom will be back in the slums.

Little Indie #3

Looks interesting.

Just what do you think you're doing?! You dare to come between me and my prey? Is it a habit of yours to scurry about, getting in the way and causing bother?

 

What are you still bothering me for? I'm a Knight. I'm not interested in your childish games. I need my rest.

 

Begone! Lest I draw my nail...

Perhaps ActiBlizzard should take some pointers from Simon Sinek:

"Turned wrong way round, the relentless unforeseen was what we schoolchildren studied as 'History,' harmless history, where everything unexpected in its own time is chronicled on the page as inevitable. The terror of the unforeseen is what the science of history hides, turning a disaster into an epic.”

Different organizations of people require different types of leadership. Sometimes someone to carry the weight and demonstrate a path forward. Sometimes someone to delegate. Sometimes its fielding the overhead to clear up space and breathing room.

 

Blizzard failed because the leaders acted in the interest of only shareholders who were short, not shareholders who were long.

Certainly I can imagine if at an earnings call for Activision or Take-Two Interactive that they announced that they were going to adopt CDPR's approach to piracy their shareholders would in short order move to vote out the leadership of those companies.

You mean using shakedown tactics to extort money from people who may or may not have pirated their game in a cute "Guilty until proved innocent" move while working with technology that's just inherently inaccurate for pinpointing individuals? I do't know, seems like something Activision's shareholders may enjoy.

So many minutes spent to say so very little in that annoying prat voice.

Eh, nothing new to be sure, but given how this drives our economy (and not just video games) I guess it bears repeating.

 

 

Anyway, I think Bright Memory was mentioned here at some point. It's an episodic FPS game made by a single Chinese developer that looked rather impressive. Well, it is on sale, and while debating whether I should get it I came across a Steam review that pointed to this. So it turns out the developer admits to using stolen assets, an "issue" he will try to rectify. He doesn't want to say where he stole the assets from but according to the aforementioned Steam review these were from Bless Online and Aliens Colonial Marines, which, it would seem, means those might have finally landed in a game with some promise  :- 

 

Not really sure how this will affect the game going forward. It's still being sold on Steam but I imagine that if the rights holders feel like it they could very well put him out of business.

23 minutes til the official awards show! (From time of posting, of course).

I've replayed Link's Awakening only a few weeks ago. The game is probably as good as ever, I don't really care for the updated visuals but depending on the price I might just grab it for the updated music.

 

That game had some great pieces even on the original Game Boy...

Obsidian isn't happy with people who bash Fallout 4 and 76 or Bethesda as a company, they are stupid.

Is it just me or is Far Cry: New Dawn the least ballyhooed title in the series? The game comes out tomorrow and while I've seen ads on Twitch, no one seems to be talking about it. Maybe I just don't frequent the places where it is being talked about?

I think Metro Exodus (Despite the Steam/Epic store... discussions) has sort of overshadowed it. I had completely forgotten about it until this tuesday, when a friend of mine said she was getting it

Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. - H.L. Mencken
