Remember Me

Kotaku has a little bit of a preview on the upcoming Capcom game Remember Me.  Looks fun so far.  I’m looking forward to this one, but I think I’m going to wait and see what the reviews look like before committing.  I recently got carried away and pre-ordered the Star Trek game (I know, I know) and obviously got burned, so I think I’m off the preorder for awhile.

Anyone have thoughts on this game?  The setting looks great.

The setting looks cool. It’s been on my radar for a while now. Some of the stuff they have show could be interesting. The memory manipulation for instance.

The traversal and exploration is very Tomb Raider so could be fine, the setting is great and the main characters seems ok.

My main worry is the combat which seems a bit derivative and the sound effects while fighting suck ass.

An adventure game is nothing more than a good story set with engaging puzzles that fit seamlessly in with the story and the characters, and looks and sounds beautiful.

The memory remix stuff is intriguing, I wonder how much weight it will have in the overall game.

There are a handful of games that I’m really looking forward to this year and this is among them. I’ve already pre-ordered it so I’ll give impressions shortly thereafter. Amazon says I’ll get it on June 4.

Art direction is killer



And it translates well into ingame engine, cannot get enough of Cyberpunk, gonna rent the game just for memory puzzle solving mechanics and exploring the world.

Not paying much attention to Fighting or platforming.

It’s on my radar, too. My only worry so far is the traversal/platforming - it’s almost like developers or publishers these days think it belongs in every action-adventure, but aside from personally being a bit tired of it, I don’t think it’s fitting in an urban environment, when we add the other parts of the game to the equation. Seems a bit forced.

On a more positive note, most of the memory mechanics sounds pretty fun and interesting, IMO, and could allow for some nice puzzle-solving. This new-ish video provides an overview of the different memory systems:

Looks like a “must buy” game for me!

I enjoy playing adventure games on handheld systems- PS VITA, Nintendo DS and ipad mini.

Interested, but also waiting for some reviews and other feedback before buying. I have so much to play anyway, that I’ll probably wait a few months for a sale.

Well, I decided to go ahead and pick it up.  Reviews have been either very good or mixed with the Metacritic fluctuating around 70 or 75.  I was able to play about a half hour this morning, and I think I will enjoy the game very much.  One of main concerns was the quality of the gameplay graphics (though the art design looked great).  Well, I can say the game looks fantastic on the PC.  I’ll leave more thoughts when I’ve played more or finished the game.  So far, so good.

Still swithering about this one, so I might wait until a price drop, or hint for it as a bday present.

Reviews are along the lines of what I was expecting from the previews. Great Story, Fantastic setting and art. Shame about the actual gameplay. Combat is repetitive and not very good and the memory puzzles are not used as much as you would like.

However I’m still holding slight hopes that I like it better than that.

This looks so good, yet I’m reading mixed reviews.  Hoping someone from this site can give me a thumbs-up on puzzles and gameplay.  Like Lucien, I might wait…....

Might pick this up when the price goes down. Reviews are saying it’s so-so, but it looks stunning and the combat system is unique enough that this game might end up being a cult favourite like Mirror’s Edge or possibly a guilty pleasure like that other Capcom game, GodHand.

I got this for PC from greenmangaming with the discount (only unlocks on Steam Friday here…)
The reviews are mixed but it does sound something I will enjoy. Sometimes great games with not a lot of marketing get lost in mixed reviews.

Atleast reviewers are positive about environment design , will pick up later, its hard to come by such a beautiful Cyberpunk world.

I did the same.  Green Man Gaming is like the Steam of preorders.  The best part is usually their 25% preorder vouchers actually last for a couple of days after the game comes out, so you can wait and see what the reviews are before “preordering”, a good thing in this day of despicable review embargoes.

Yes, I don’t rememer the last time I bought a full price steamworks game actually on Steam Smile
They usually also provide the download code in time for steam pre-loading
