@ma_rc_01: just playing this and this response is two years old but I will definitely try that out if I ever go through it twice.

The game is decent there is just so much potential in this universe that was not capitalized on. The game is also rough in some areas but overall I enjoyed it.

PROTIP: Play the game in french, the voice acting is way better and fitting since it takes place in Paris.

Should have got joey barton to do the voice acting

Anyone else immediately think of Michael.K.Williams (Omar from the Wire) based on the facial features of the black dude?

Pretty cool game...definitely bargain bin material though. I'll check this out when it hits that 20 dollar neighborhood.

@themanwithnoplan: Small tits, flat ass and a black under shirt covering her cleavage, I'm not seeing any overtly sexualized tones with the female protagonist at all. Just because it's a female in a tight suit doesn't make it overly sexualized, hell Spider Man's more sexualized than this chick.

After having played 2/3rds of the game and seeing the character's outfit after the intro I completely agree she's not really that sexualized. The beginning outfit reminded me of Miranda from Mass Effect, who's really just a character model with skin tight clothes painted on.

Whatever would the player do without the corporal symbol to jolt the brain to action during a climbing sequence?

The memory thing looks nice, but really does not look like exciting gameplay. Lovely seeing such a colorful "gritty" game though, puts all the dusty brown games to shame!

This looks kinda cool! I'll have to check this out in a few months when it's like $15.

The information you are asking for has been present in the middle of the screen in English, black on white, for two minutes. GOOOOOD.

And yes, Tommy is goddamned terrible. Hopefully he'll never show up again.

I'm interested in the world they got going on but the fighting just seems like crap.

It seems pretty good, like a Parisian Ghost in the Shell meets Enslaved. I'm in!

I'd mix that with some Denno Coil, but that's the vibe I'm getting too.

There are a lot of things that actually seem pretty cool about this game! I really like the look of the world and the UI, and the story elements sound cool. The whole memory wiping bit seems neat.

I think I could put up with some janky combat and voice acting to experience this game. I'll definitely keep an eye out for it when it gets cheaper.

Sorry guys, I'm all for your "strong female protagonist" thing, but...

  1. The idea of her running around in a skimpy jumpsuit to show off her supermodel figure kinda hurts your whole angle.
  2. If you're going to make a game starring a 100-pound Asian/whatever girl, maybe you shouldn't also include combat against 400-pound roid-raging behemoths, mobs of mutants, and extremely physically demanding traversal sequences.

Why is every woman with petite figure classified as a super model? Have people never seen a female athlete? Nilin looks like Allison Stokke, not Tyra Banks.

And unless they changed the definition, I'm quite certain this isn't a jumpsuit:

You're spot on with point 1, but point 2, shut up, Batman couldn't beat up Bane in "real life" either. Get over it.

The girl is good looking. But really, who cares.

And the flaws with the game don't seem like things I care about. So I guess I'll pick this up.

Also, I had to laugh about Ryan (of ALL PEOPLE) complaining that people paused...

... in the middle of their sentences.

I'm all for attractive female protagonists (because I'm sexist, apparently), but this girl seems way too skinny.

Watched 10 minutes of the quick look, so far all I've seen in 10 minutes of futzing about with combos. Ugh, videogames.

Also feel like I'm missing some point of reference with the game's aesthetic and setting, as if watching the right piece of eurotrash cinema will make it all make sense.

Damn, Jeff must have been SUPER tired recording this. It hurts. The part with the electric floor... all of the running around into walls and not just following the simple path... this game isn't bad, it's simple.

Pretty much exactly. The combat is very simple and easy to not get hit at all. Not sure why Jeff failed so hard during this QL.

Is it just me or are videos on Giant Bomb bugging the hell out of anybody else?

Not just you. The player is borked. Probably due to using inferior Gamespot technology.

I really don't understand the criticism on the voice acting, I thought it was pretty good. The doctors voice seemed great. It gave him a bit of a unique personality. Also he seemed to be distracted, which is why he paused a few times.

The memory remixing part was super cool. Shame there are only 4 of those from what I hear. Should have been the whole game.

@lazyaza: @jesterpc238: I don't know what Jeff was doing wrong but there is no animation priority in this game. You can dodge very freely, and choosing to dodge during the start-up animation of an attack actually plays into the system's attempts to discourage mashing.

@ghostiet: I really appreciated the design decision to combo-break you on switching targets. Remember Me has one of the best risk/reward combat systems in any game, with the way attacks become exponentially more powerful the further they are in the combo. The final attack in an 8-hitter is always a doozy and offers you a decent chunk of bonus XP as well, but getting there is rarely going to be easy.

@royce_mccutcheon: Yeah, I get that but seriously, implying that corrupting somebody's memory can kill somebody? If anything, wouldn't that just make them comatose or something? This one quick look made me rage pretty bad in terms of actual science.

It was just a figure of speech. He was basically saying, "these endorphins should make things easier." An interesting 'idiom' sure, but not a techno-babble attempt.
