New IP, no guns, no death: Capcom's new action game is breaking the law, but can it get away with it?

It's tragically unfair that, at first glance, Remember Me doesn't appear to be doing anything new at all.... read more

Interview: Can Remember Me prove everyone wrong?

Postby FixBeatGames » 27 Nov 2012, 11:42

nice interview, but:

"It's a new IP set to launch just when the current console cycle grinds to a halt"

the sales figures suggest a slight slowdown, not a grind to a halt. and some of the best games for the current consoles are still to come: the last of us, the last guardian, grand theft auto 5, metal gear solid 5, bioshock infinate, etc. we've just had the best cod. best halo.

there's just so much wrong with the statement "current console cycle grinds to a halt" in my opinion. it's the kinda thing pc gamers hurt by console ports are saying. which just isn't true.

It's early days, but it did remind me of a new Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure, but replacing the graffiti with mind-jacking. Could be just me, though.

I totally agree. You always get the best games of a generation when the devs know what they're doing with the hardware and so can focus much more time on constructiing decent gameplay over just getting the game to work,

I agree with the sentiment minus the generalisation of PC gamers.

I wish I had being paying some attention to this as it sounds and looks like a real delight.
Childhood pictures redeem, clean and so serene
See myself without ruining lines
Whole days throwing sticks into streams

I have crawled so far sideways
I recognise dim traces of creation

The best and most innovative games come at the end of the console cycle when companies are most familiar with the hardware and huge installed bases mean some risks can be taken with games that are more original. Looks like this is a good and potentially great example.

In my experience the best games are the ones that slip under the radar, and then they're just incredible on release and spread like wildfire due to quality. Feels like these guys are trying to talk themselves into number 1 slot. Smells like lacking :roll:

This does look interesting. I wonder how the lack of weaponry will impact the experience, and I'm looking forward to trying it.

This is currently my most anticipated game for 2013. Everything I've read & the videos I've viewed just piques my interest further! If it's half as good as my over-active imagination has painted it, it'll be great.

Nowadays, when a game is published/developed by Capcom, I tend to avoid, too many AWESOOOME action set pieces, on disc DLC, streamlined gameplay mechanics, don't wanna confuse the casual action gamers, just reeks of general shittyness.

I like the premise and the setting, and I think the gameplay video looks good. It's not original by a long shot, yet as mentioned in the article, when the total sum of its parts come together it seems like it'll be a fine entertainment experience. :-) From the video my one main gripe is the half-cockney/half-Aussie accent of the female protagonist; it seems misplaced to me. I think it should have been a softer feminine French accent, or a more neutral international Anglo-Saxon accent.
