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."
