i also passed on Spore and Bioshock due to the DRM, as well as Valve's newer Steam-only stuff - despite my wanting to play these games.

i have purchased indie games online with activation in the past, but those titles were also much under $20.

Nintendo, please, give me a new Mario game like this.  I would love a new 8-bit style 2d Mario. 

As much as I love old-schooling it, I'd rather they make a 2D Mario with 3D graphics. Just make sure that Mario is restricted to the 2D plane.

the old pixel approach would be an improvement - getting rid of the cheesy fake-Italian voice overs and the dopey 3D rendering style.

i somehow lost the disc years ago... so if anyone has just the disc and wants the art+manual, i will send. conversely, if anyone has just the disc and wants to get rid of it... contact me as well. (it's the non-Greatest Hits version, if that makes a difference)

Yeah, I'm not sure this is the right direction for them to go.  I think it's a cool idea, but I would prefer to see something along the lines of 3-D rendered characters and backgrounds in a sidescroller.  I really want to get behind this, but I'm having trouble doing so.

BTW, one of the limitations, if you remember, is that certain parts of the music would cut out when certain sounds played.  There's also the aforementioned sprite flicker, and limitations on sprite sizes.  I'll bet this team is dusting off all the things that Capcom WANTED to do during their NES heyday and never really could.

I think you are right, since they aren't really sized limited they can expand the music, make better animations, add things like parralax scrolling and multiple layers to each level etc. I too would've liked to see this idea on more of a SNES type level, but I can get behind this. I think they could do more color wise but then it wouldn't be Mega Man if they did.

i read that the dev team is limiting themselves to what was possible on the NES system. you will be able to toggle flicker and slowdown in the options menu.

I don't understand what point you're trying to get across. That RE5 will be a faithful console port?

that would precisely be it. indications seem to be that it will be.
700  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Resident Evil 5 for PC to not suck? on: August 06, 2008, 01:46:06 AM
RE5 is being developed in Capcom's "Framework", which is a cross-platform engine (for XBOX 360, PS3 and PC). Devil May Cry 4 used this, and the result was a much* better-ported game - the reviews i've read have said that the PC version was exactly like the console, and very nicely optimized.

quote from here: "I have read, not sure if it's been discussed here, but this engine stuff from Capcom is a major change for Japanese developers. Previously they had built games from scratch each time, shunning the Western practice of engines such as UE3.0. So I just think that aspect is very interesting."

For old, i would say Berzerk. Trapped in a giant electrified-wall base-thing with multi-hued robots! that talk! and shoot each other by mistake! and an uber-evil indestructible bouncing smiley face!

For new, definitely Katamari Damacy for not only it's compulsive gameplay, but creating an entire world that accents and enhances the game itself, rather than detracting from it. the graphics and audio are all in keeping with the atmosphere. it's a perfect result of letting the design team run off with their own ideas without any 'committee-itis' or corporate interference and becoming absolutely successful with doing things their own way. more modern games should be like this.

i have a 2006 Kona Smoke, actually, and i do like tooling around on that. drawback is it's heavy, but it's solid and nice for inner-city riding, and rides smooooth. it has a shorter, more compact frame, which seems to translate to a slightly higher 'immediacy' when turning, but it took me a while to get acclimated.
