    Re: Official Video Games Thread VIII: Titans are destined to fall

    I’ve finally got some time to go back and try to get 100% in RDR2.

    Never really got around to doing some of the scavenger hunt/collection side quests. Not to mention all the plants and animals I somehow haven’t discovered yet.

    A remake and a remaster are two different things. Final Fantasy 8 was a remaster last year. They're probably remaking FF7 because they haven't even thought of FF16 and FF7 remake buys them time after 15 took like 7-8 years to push it out.

    I would think that Hollywood's track record with remakes lately is playing a part (apples and oranges I know). Doing the same with just those changes probably carries a huge stigma of risk.

    How do they **** this up so badly? Just copy/paste the script. Update the graphics. Make a $billion

    If it was under a different name, with a different story, it would be alright. Instead it’s a FF7 Remake and it’s a mess. I knew it was going to be like this and I’m still disappointed.

    Maybe I’m just an old millennial but I don’t understand why people think turn based RPG’s don’t work in the modern gaming world, heck the South Park games prove they still do.

    I started working through my backlog of XBox One games. Fired up Shadow of the Tomb Raider. The visuals are stunning. There was an option for better frame rate or higher resolution, I tried both and faster frame rate made the game feel like a movie that I can control.

    It’s now a button masher ala FFXV and they’ve retconned the story.

    Wonderful.

    Nintendo patched out the item duplication glitch today from Animal Crossing. So no more easy money for you cheaters.

    I've so far been playing the game as intended. No time travel, glitches, etc. Not that I'm against it.
