I feel like the core Rare team that made all those older games are gone and therefore may not satisfy the true fans. However, their team is still extremely talented and that's not to say that new games will disappoint.


For instance, Banjo fans might have been a bit disappointed in Nuts n Bolts. But myself having never played a Banjo game, I think Nuts and Bolts is one of the best platformers I've ever played. And even if I were to play Banjo 1 or 2 I wouldn't change what I thought about Nuts n Bolts. I just think that that team might not be able to deliver on the nostalgia that old Rare has created because fans + nostalgia = impossible to please.

Basically, I think they've moved on which I think is a great thing.

It would be nice to have the first game. I don't know why they stopped making the port of The Witcher for consoles. I was pretty upset when I heard it wasn't coming :(

Definitely not. Keep Versus on the PS3, I don't want the game to be broken down so it can fit on 360 discs.


Then again Mistwalker did a good job of breaking up Lost Odyssey...

Telltale seems to randomly pick the console they develop for.

I totally forgot that this is all happening so close to E3!

Honestly, if you take out the parts I've bolded you could be describing the first game. Could you be a little more specific? What about the gels feels tedious? And I'm not sure what you're referring to by "strategy from the original game".

I liked both Portal 1 and 2 BTW.

I guess I was referring to just the gel part, and also what a user said above about how you use the momentum thing a lot. A lot of the puzzles can be completed by finding a high spot and jumping or using the orange goo and running through. I'm past that part though and Maybe the game will offer up some more diversity and I'm about to jump into it again.

These threads are so stupid. If you really want to know the differences just google them.

These replies are so stupid.  I already googled it and didn't find anything so I wanted to ask my fellow GBers. "
Usually when you don't find anything that means nothing is there.
Therefore, no difference. Logic... use it

Just one small exclusive case 

Except that exclusive case you mentioned in your own post.........

"
There will most likely be an extremely miniscule technical difference between the games. If you're looking for content and the extra case, then that is EASILY searchable by google. Not only that, it's advertised as having the extra case wherever you see PS3 ads for the game so I had assumed you would have known this and were talking about the technical aspects of the game.

That's like me making a topic asking  "MK9 PS3 vs. 360?" We all know that the PS3 version has Kratos because it's been advertised it's almost common knowledge because just Google that shit. Talking about technical aspects is what may yield more conversation. But apparently all you wanted us to do in this thread is look at an ad and state the obvious -_-
