Strider looks nice when it's being played by a pro


11:00 PM on 10.08.2013



Even without a deep-rooted sense of nostalgia for Strider -- okay, I do love the ridiculous Blue Dragon and always will for obvious reasons -- the remake in development at Double Helix is enough to bring about feelings of uneasiness. It's tough to know how these things are going to pan out and to that end, it's easy to assume the worst these days.

We just heard that the game will be playable at New York Comic Con, and now Capcom's got some fresh screenshots and a trailer. The price has also been locked down at $14.99.

To see this game botched would be such a disappointment and it stinks that the default reaction is to worry. But we've been burned enough in the past -- it's justified. I'm crossing my fingers for you, Strider. Please be worthy of that name.

Review: Strider

I was very skeptical when the Strider franchise was handed over to Double Helix. This was before we found out that Killer Instinct was actually a decent game, when the studio was allowed to spread its wings with som...more

Do you prefer Strider's retro tracks or the new remixes?

The original "Raid" has not been topped, but both "Siberian Tunnel" tracks make my ears sing. The Strider reboot is coming to PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC early 2014 for $15. C'mon, Double Helix. Don't goof this up or it's back to licensed Battleship games and Killer Instinct DLC forever.more

Getting up to speed with Strider

Strider was…well, it wasn't a big deal at Tokyo Game Show 2013. It could be found at a couple of places on the show floor, but you had to look for it. But I didn't need any fanfare or huge signage to want to try it out...more

I still haven't beaten that Bloodborne TGS demo

Usually seeing a demo you played just a month ago means there isn't too much more to wring out. This is not the case with Bloodborne. The Tokyo Game Show demo bested me. That same demo was playable today at Paris Games Week. ...more

Laser Fury looks like Diablo but neon and radical

I do not mean to suggest that Diablo is not good, but the dreary look never really grabbed me, even with Diablo III's improvements in that respect. Laser Fury, on the other hand, takes a hold of my eyes immediately...more
