Anyone cautiously optimistic?

Seems a little derivative, but derivative of things I like. Will keep an eye on this.

It sounds suspiciously like Minority Report. I can't say I'm too excited for it, but I at least like that they're pushing more new I.P's.

You mean Remember Me? The page has boxart images, and the text states that it was revealed at Gamescom 2012, so I guess the page title should be updated.

As for the game itself, I haven't actually heard about it before, but it sounds interesting enough to keep an eye on.

A mix of cyberpunk stuff, which is good, with some gameplay that I have yet to see. I would say "cautiously optimistic" is the right state.

PS: just saw the video posted by @voidox.

Now I'm moderately excited and hoping not to be disappointed. This game could be good or just another game that looked good but then failed. It seems to be the first game for the developer company, they don't have a track of successes nor failures. Time will tell.

I have my hopes, but definitely want to see more. Like to see Capcom publishing stuff that isn't typical of Capcom, so that is always nice.

We should take bets now on if that dude on the radio is the Atlas/Fontaine of the game. Given that the game is based around selective editing of memories, Remember Me seems absolutely rife with potential for an Alias-like "But I didn't know I was working for the bad guys!" twist.

I'm cautious but it does look like it has potential. I'll be interested to see how it turns out.

Does anybody else think the main protagonist looks and sounds like Lara Croft, though?

Cautious optimism if my default emotion with it comes to new stuff that looks neat.

That said, Remember Me looks neat!

Love the setting, visual style, and the idea of memory fuckage. Will I buy it, however? Depends on the gameplay. I want to DO SHIT, I want to create my own scenarios with complete freedom.

I'll keep an eye on this, but if it's the typical funneling kind of game, no thanks, I hate interactive movies.

Even though Capcom gets a lot of crap for poor practices, they still make some pretty good games. I'm cautiously optimistic.

Cautiously optimistic pretty much describes how I feel about this right now, since the last time Capcom did something similar (cyberpunk-esque third person action game)... didn't exactly turn out so well *cough P.N.03 cough*.

But that remix stuff seems neat, so yeah, cautiously optimistic pretty much sums up where I'm at with this.

Just seems a bit too much like Assassin's Creed to me. Not that AC is bad, just that a game that looks like it's trying to be another game probably won't turn out so great. I'd have to wait for post-release review before I chucked money at it.

Just me though; but I like to punch frogs for fun, so I don't know much.

In terms of game quality, I can't think of a single time that Capcom has let me down, so yeah, optimistic.

I do wish the heroine didn't walk like a supermodel and wore such tight clothing- especially since they really don't even seem to be putting much of a focus on her body. If you're not going to be a total creepy disquieting sleaze with your sexy video game women, why make them sexy at all?

New trailer is out.

It looks like the game quality will live or die depending on how well the fighting mechanics work. Very neat graphical style and an excuse to put in all manner of non-sense (current stuff still mostly looks like Mirror's Edge). It looks like some definite quality people behind it (but not necessarily ones you would assume would make this sort of action game), but presumably Capcom is a bit of an asset here.

Big emphasis on "cautiously".

And "curious" is probably a better word than "optimistic". I'm not terribly excited to play it yet but I'll certainly look into it.

I was cautiously optimistic, but I just took a jump and pre-ordered throwing caution to the wind. I just hope the camera and controls work well, I can deal with it if the game is a bit short and linear.

Ive had this pre-ordered for awhile now.
Really looking forward to screw some memories up, not so sure about the combat though.

Capcom also releases decent PC versions so im hopefull.

Maybe. The worst, most egregious ass shot in a long time on the cover kind of makes me want to vomit on their marketing guys, though.

Seem like it could be cool the story sounded interesting but with so little play in the media can't be a good sign.

Still interested, I don't expect much, but even flawed games can be very interesting. Binary Domain would be an example that a game with flaws can be far more interesting than and triple-a polished title.

@starvinggamer: I would consider games like Bayonetta differently, it knew what it was and flaunted it. The cover art at least matched the tone of the game, where Remember Me *appears* to place no emphasis on the character's sexuality, other than her marketable figure being used to appeal to a certain audience.

I also said "in a long time", and it's been a while since Bayonetta. But in terms of just sheer ballsiness on the cover art, X-Blades probably "wins" for me.
