Remember Me

What gamers say about Capcom's Remember Me

Sexism, racism, and fanboyism are GO!

Capcom released a new gameplay demo video of Remember Me yesterday, and the response from gamers was ... rather cynical. Whether it's due to residual resentment of Capcom or the actual quality of the game is for you to decide, but folks are fixed on hating this one already. 

Naturally, Youtube provided the richest source of well-meaning, uniquely critical, thought-provoking commentary on the status of this all-new action game. From criticisms that the female protagonist doesn't look enough like a woman, to the emphatic declaration that Remember Me has killed videogames, you can be sure that some deep discussion was had. 

As always, Destructoid was on hand to JOURNALISM this discussion, and provide the best comments for you to read and ponder while stroking your chin and drinking some fine supermarket wine.

"everyone is copying Sony uncharted what a shocker. ill still be getting this game. so 2012/13 is looking good for Sony console. WATCH DOGS MGS GZ REMEMBER ME GOW A AND LOTS OF EXCLUSIVE YEAH. GO SONY." - jojo ash

"The game literally guides your hand the whole fucking time. The combat looks dull as fuck the enemies don't even try to hit her. The dialogue is shit, and the plot is garbage and so obviously predictable and cliche'd as well as it being completely linear. Sure the environment is nice, but its not much when they don't even do anything with it. Reminds me A LOT like Dead Space so I wouldn't even call it that unique." - HolyPwngeSucker

"Uncharted meets Dragon Dogma... This is so wrong... its like cancer filled with aids" - CabooseAzul

"Cutscene>10 seconds of gameplay>Cutscene>10 seconds of gameplay>Cutscene>10 seconds of gameplay>Cutscene>10 seconds of gameplay>" - TonyKnockOff

"GAMING IS DEAD" - TriforcePlayer2

"shit, absolute shit" - kurono1999

"I want her to NOT look like a man, and to look like a beautiful woman. In the world there are millions of beautiful women, and just because they are all beautiful, it does mean that they all look the same, you know. If their intention is to make her look ugly with manly characteristics, then they are on the right track." - HeavenlyShogun

"atleast this one doesnt have some ugly ass chinky eyed girl like that other parkour game." - WhiteGravey

"Eww i hate british accent." - jibjr88

"the girl is fuckin ugly and manly wtf" - ricefarmer

"Capcom just made another Jill Sandwich." - darkof

"Let me summarize the comment section for you so you don't have to scroll through. People thinking naughty-dog invented action-adventure with uncharted." - CupCakeAndMe

"capcom should hired David cage for story line and there tech for this game and made it exclusive for ps3 instead. aka heavy rain director from QD." - jojo ash (again)

And finally, dragontamer1127 gives us a cathartic dose of sarcasm:

"i'm glad that they made her wiggle her hips when she moves, i was afraid i was going to have to take her seriously as a character."

Adventure games are a big part of the indie scene, but there's a reason their popularity plummeted as graphics evolved. This clicking on everything, just in case, nonsense is for the birds. 90s birds, but birds.

Spotted some "The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3" (1989) DVDs in a store. Hearing music and sound effects from the game is more amusing than it should be - although the running shrill gets old quickly.

Diablo 3 patch 2.3.0 equals more grinding. Good.

Funny coincidence: Last week saw the release of Until Dawn, which talked about a Canadian tribe of Native Americans called the Cree,and last night a Cree woman (Ms. Canada) won the Ms. Universe contest. Butterfly Effect updated.

Finished Xenoblade Chronicles for the first time in about 107 hours. Got tired of attempting to clear as many sidequests as there were left available. Maybe in NG+...
