For an amazingly similar experience it'd be a lot cheaper to just buy a screwdriver n jam it up your pisshole.

FYI it seems to include all of the Enemy Within content as well.

Was watching my friend play Wind Waker HD, and it's amazing how they managed to make the game look worse than it did in SD. Everything is bright and washed out and the game isn't even cell-shaded anymore. How can a game -- that's so praised for it's cell-shaded artstyle -- get a remaster that takes away the cell-shaded look? It's baffling.

^^It looks that bad? That was one of the only reasons I even wanted a WiiU to begin with. :lol:
Oh well. There's still Fatal Frame 5.

It's more of a matter of opinion, I could see someone preferring the new style, but it ruins the game for me, unfortunately. I'd recommend at least checking it out, because maybe you won't care.

Is it fair to say even Star Ocean 5 is coming out before Final Fantasy XV?

Deadly premonition is awesome, really flawed, but it's a love or hate thing. If you like the characters, it's humor and it's atmossphere, you'll love it. It has also a pretty strong narrative.

The combat sucks balls, and pc version was not well optimized (and in some cases there were a lot of crashes), so you'll probably have to find the fixes online.

But the game is different and a unique experience. About "open world", it's pretty big, not the type of open world like GTA, but medium size without "havok all in between".

You like David Lynch? Twin Peaks in particular?

Cause it's the videogame equivalent to that.

I've been playing through Deadly Premonition on PC recently, only about 5 hours in but enjoying it.

Just got back from trying out a Vive at Curry's on Tottenham Court Road. My first experience with VR.

It was amazing.

VR is gonna be a game-changer, once the price drops at least.

Well that's interesting. Might turn out to be a terrible game (no clue), but at the very least it's a totally new setting for a videogame.
