    HD remakes of classic games.

    I don't know if anyone has heard, but they're going to make a HD remake of Flashback.

    After looking at the screen of the remake when compared with the original, I have to say that it looks and feels inauthentic. If anyone has something to say about this or other HD "enhancements", I would like to know.

    That Turtles in Time remake sure was a disappointment.

    Anybody remember when Vectorman was supposed to get a reboot last gen?



    Thank goodness they dropped that idea.

    Doesn't mean Bomberman didn't get that kind of "edgy" update that actually went into fruition.



    Good lord.

    Speaking of unimpressive HD treatment: Here's Earthworm Jim in HD

    Aside from the particle effects being unnecessary, Interplay declined Tommy Tallarico's offer to use his music.

    Jim's voice actor is really annoying, too. They couldn't get Dan Castellaneta, or hell, TenNapel himself? If memory serves, Jim's original voice in the games was the guy who created him!

    But outside of the bleh graphics, weak remixed music, and the annoying voice actor, it's the original Earthworm Jim in full effect. The gameplay is all there and exactly as it should be. There's remakes that have done worse misteps, if you ask me.

    Saw that on Rock Paper shotgun.

    I still do have the pirated floppy disks of Flashback, and the cd-rom of Out of this World (Another World).

    I still cringe when I see people play it on a Genesis or Snes emulators. Come on, people get an Amiga, or MS-DOS. Get dosbox run it.

    I am a bit pissed off.

    WOW, I had to google that Bomberman game... and it wasn't a joke!

    Add this one to the list of horrors:

    To Januz: You have given me another reason why NOT to get a smart phone.

    To Psychotime: Great point about Interplay not messing with the gameplay.

    well for anyone who doesnt know nintendo are remaking zelda the wind waker in HD.




    Looking forward to this wind waker is my favorite zelda closely followed by majora and ocarina,
    just hope they do more then just update the visuals and add some new features.
    hoping they make the game harder, original was way too easy.
    Feel like nintendos trolling a bit though we had the ocarina remake a while back then there was operation moonfall trying to convince nintendo to make a majoras mask remake. we had the awesome fake majora trailer before e3 getting everyones hopes up then...they announced this. something tells me nintendo's gonna remake every other zelda before they do majora one lol.
