Usually it's easy to say that the die-hard fans of a series are being irrational over a property they care about. This time however, I completely understand. I'm just trying to figure out who would want to turn the filter on in the first place.
One of the best examples of what the Saturn was designed to do. Unfortunately 3D was where the industry was headed and that was something the Saturn was not designed to do well.
One less reason to keep my Saturn handy, but until they get around to a Panzer Dragoon HD collection I'll still keep it for those games.
I imported this game when it came out in Japan, then bought it again when it came to the US, it's that good.
Dude, Guardian Heroes is one of the best brawlers I can think of. Satisfying combat, RPG style levelling up, multiple paths through the story each with totally different endings, and a crazy multiplayer mode that allowed you to be any character you had fought in the campaign.
Kind of like the 11th costume colour in Super Street Fighter 4, but worse. You only choose the stupid-looking "sketched" filter if you're actively trying to be a dick.
I have been wanting this for years and this looks great. I love the orginal art, and can't wait to see what the orginal sprites look like with rich HD color. This is the best of both worlds for GH fans. I only hope you can have a "skip all" option for the text windows. Some of those things go on way too long, even when you try to go through them as quick as the game allows.
In a perfect world this would sell well enough to get a true sequel, but I am really happy we are at least getting this. Oh, and SEGA, if you are getting into the habit of rereleasing old Saturn classics, Panzer Trilogy HD would sure be nice, whether XBLA or on disc...in a world full of pointless overpriced "Collector's Editions" a steelbook PD Trilogy HD stuffed with art and music CDs would definitely demand my 70-80 bucks! Just let me sell my virtually mint complete PDS on Ebay first, please.
I don't see the problem. If you want the the original sprites in all their pixelated glory, with the added benefit of HD, this rerelease has it. If you want the smoother looking redone look, you can have it too.
If you want the exact same game without HD, and don't own a working Saturn, SSF Emulation on PC is somewhere around 98% of a functioning Saturn, and accepts original Saturn discs to keep everything legal. It would probably cost 50-60 dollars on Ebay for a nice complete copy, but if someone is such a purist that having the same untouched art in a higher resolution is a nagative, then the extra 35-45 bucks shouldn't matter much.
Or if you simply connect via Composite Cables, this new version would do the same thing. Everyone wins, except people that like to complain about everything.
" @Video_Game_King said:Is that all it takes to be a game designer? Then I'd like to announce my HD remake of Sonic CD!" Was somebody just playing with the Photoshop filters? ""Hey intern, make these sprites bigger, and uh...put some filters on them. I need this done in 15 minutes." "
yay, now I don't have to get a $90 copy of it off of ebay... maybe the price of the originals will go down too, I could always use some more games for my Saturn collection.
okay sega, now just release Nights: into Dreams and Panzer Dragoon Saga on XBLA and I'll be happy, lol
