Still nothing set in stone for the first one on PS3, I assume it will do..but you know devs, there a bit insane sometimes :)

The new look is great in stills, but I really don't like how cardboard cutout it gets when things start animating. It's super jarring in a way that the original art isn't, for some reason.

That, and voice acting sorta sets tone in stone, tone that I've - over the course of playing these games countless times - have gotten a pretty specific idea of for myself.

It's neat that they're coming with a glass of HD-ized, fully voiced water to help newcomers swallow what's otherwise probably pretty old and stuffy looking though. The writing is still bloody excellent, and the delightfully melody driven music - though not the Amiga awesomeness it once was - still stands in stark contrast to what's largely unremarkable stringy nonsense these days.

yeah but you've not experienced how cool and interesting it is to swap back and fourth at the touch of a button yet
