Zone of the Enders HD Collection

SDCC: Zone of the Enders HD is simply gorgeous

I screamed for joy the day Konami finally announced an HD re-release of the Zone of the Enders games. I love anything with mechs, and nothing even comes close to the fast paced nature of ZoE. Konami is showing it off at San Diego Comic-Con where I went hands-on, and both games look fantastic in HD. 

The only downside to the collection is that the CG sequences in the first ZoE look horrible as it's simply been upscaled. The visuals don't stand the test of time, but that only applies to the movie sequences. ZoE: The 2nd Runner, however, won't suffer the same issue as it uses anime visuals which still look great.

Of course, what really matters is the actual gameplay visuals, and they just shine. The textures on Jehuty and enemy units are so smooth and sleek, plus the HD effect adds a lot to the lights and bright colors throughout the game.

Screenshots like these don't do the collection justice. As far as I'm concerned, Zone of the Enders fans won't be disappointed.

Maybe this has been addressed, but what the hell is going on with Disqus here?

Also, I think my Wii U gamepad is on its last legs... the NFC reader is still kaput, the screen is rather smudgy and the L button is started to stick like a motherfucker. Sooner or later it's just going to stop working altogether methinks. :'(

Younger me would be so disappointed in the gamer I am today. When did I stop finishing games? Seriously!

We were discussing Ben Carson, pyramids, corpses, SoFlo, and Nekro's fetishes in the Discord chat if anyone wants to know what it's like down there.

Nintendo just sent me an email to say "Congrats on your new Wii U!". It wasn't new it got fucking FRIED and now all my stuff's gone after repairs - I was in Chapter 9! Chapter 9! 70+ hours on XCX! And that's just one game! I was- *walks off ranting*

Irony: over 9000!. The same UN with staff distributing child porn, Saudi Arabia heading its Human Rights Council and troops accused of rape wants to school Japan on their treatment of women in videogames. You can't can't make up this stuff.

So I got my game recorder. That's good! But I ordered the wrong one. That's bad. So just gotta send back to Amazon and order it. Could've sworn on the website it said the HD60 Elgato let you record old games too.

It just occured to me that given the 99% probablility of there being an update pack to XCOM 2-ala Enemy Within-waiting for a while may be a better option, so that when I do get the game I get it in its optimal form-and on sale, to bring it below 90 total
