Sweet, that comes to around 6.99 pounds, I've been looking forward to this game. However, if it is has add-ons which are going to be sold seperatly (like what was done SA1), I might wait for a special offer or price drop ^_^;

It's weird but it looks as if both Sonic Adventure 1 and this have gotten actually worse visually

That would be some interesting mayhem, battling for customers.
Sounds fun!

It's nice that they at least gave the game widescreen support, but they should have redrawn the 2-d elements to match. It looks fugly

HO-LEE-SHIT. i dont remember this game looking so crappy. it has PSone level character models. the people have no freaking fingers for christ sake. they could have at least done SOMETHING to make it look better?

it might just be standard practise for all Xbox related trailers, but I noticed in the small print at the end of the trailer on the 2nd line a mention of Kinect, along with the usual xbox, xbox 360 and xbox live stuff....

They could at least have managed a little anti-aliasing considering how basic the graphics are...

I think the Dreamcast version looks way better than this even the PSP version looks better. It seems like all this Dc-remakes are being emulated instead of being maked almost from ground zero.

Yeah I agree with you Play
Sonic Adventure 1 is the most noticeable

What's up?
  • Megido
    Megido That's actually funny. Zapkowski said that the games aren't canon in his view, but i guess CDPR decieds what's canon and not if they own the IP. Hahaha. (7 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts made, he wouldn't get a penny. Nor have artistic rights to how they should or should not be used. It was a really, really bad deal for him. (7 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Megido: That's true as well. He obviously did a bad job with selling. Also, if I'm not mistaken, CD Projekt RED has the full rights to The Witcher IP, meaning that if any movies or TV show is ever (9 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido Also, he wouldn't be whining if he didn't sell his friggin IP instead of taking a cut. (12 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido @Sdarts: He wrote the first witcher stories in the 80s mang, and the main witcher saga in the 90's. Before the games nobody knew, now The Witcher is a huge global thing. I think it was a win for him. (15 minutes ago)

    Sdarts *Into the Badlands (48 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts For those who want action and great fights, I really recommend "Int the Badlands" on AMC. The fights' coreography are amazing and the story is good enough to keep the action going. (49 minutes ago)
