The controls are fine on me2 and 3 but they would need to do some work on the first’s combat, from controls to the rpg aspects of gun accuracy, powers, etc. It would probably be too much to justify that and porting the other games while big wigs would look at what happened to andromeda and be like, “you want to use time and resources to remaster a trilogy of games in a series where the last game bombed? No.”

@sethmode: it happened to me on my Leon B run. Same reaction.

For those having problems with Mr X, there are rooms he won’t go into, like save rooms. After you’ve hidden from him, when you hear a door close it means that he’s left the vicinity. Also, while he does show up during certain stretches of the game, he’s not constantly stalking you all the time. Lastly, he’s pretty easy to get away from if you can get to a table or something where you can loop around him.

Man, I remember the year or so wait between the Japanese and American releases took forever with my only solace being rereading import reviews of it in mags like Gamefan. I was 18, in my freshman year at college, and drove over two hours away to the town where stores would have it on launch day.

Back then (Jesus) department stores were always bad with game releases, sometimes getting them in stock days/weeks later or never, depending on the game. This meant that if you lived in a rural area, you had wait and hope for dept stores like Walmart to eventually get it in, order it from a mail order store like Chips and Bits (a godsend for getting non-mainstream games), or drive.

So I get to the town, go to the mall, and picked it up at Sears. Remember when Sears stores had dedicated video game sections?! Anyway, I picked it up there because they were giving out FF7 T-shirt’s with a purchase.

I spent the next week playing it constantly. It was the first game that I played almost nonstop aside from sleeping and eating. I even recorded the ending and rewatched it a bunch.

I never went back to it after beating it and only a few years later various parts of the game already seemed outdated but for a brief period of time it had an effect on me like few other games have.

@themaxdaddy: to be fair, it’s not my joke. It’s been the giantbomb community consensus for years now regarding Dan.

You’ll soon realize that it’s because Dan rolled average to below average stats on every attribute but luck, which is maxed.

100% this topic. The main game, minus the epilogue, was already one of the best games I’ve played and the epilogue further cemented that for me.

I dug the extra time paid to the Marstons, Charles, and Sadie. I also enjoyed the story and pace even more than the main game.

I’m on board. I trust Obsidian when it comes to characters and world building. With MS backing them hopefully Obsidian will have the time and resources to release a polished game.

DB Fighterz, AC Odyssey, and DQ 11 which I liked but kinda fell off once I got into RDR 2, which is one of the best games I’ve ever played. I’ll also add Just Cause 4 if it’s not a mess like 3 was on consoles.
