    I think Yorda's AI is a little better, and you can unlock translated subtitles for her. Also you can unlock a lightsaber-type weapon, or maybe that's just the Japanese version.

    Also omg this is out yayayayayay

    New Game+ (translations and lightsaber replaces mace)
    Two-player (one controls Yorda, although it's not very exciting)
    Film Effect
    Slightly modified puzzles and AI in some places (Yorda gives hints to some puzzles if you're stuck on them for a while).

    also melon ending. (i think)

    you don't want to play the ps2 sotc if you can get your hands on the ps3 version.

    the ps2 one is choppy as hell, and it really takes away from the game.

    Look, if all the man can play them on is the PS2, I'd rather he did that than not play SotC at all.

    whoa damn I just opened the case to put the game away and the sleeve is reversable

    the backside just has the ICO art on the front and the SOTC art on the back without any labels or words

    While that's undebatable

    Personally I didn't really notice it while I was actually playing the thing

  • Blake TBlake T Registered User regular
    I really want to give SotC a go but I have enough games to play at the moment.

    I will probably wait till it gets even cheaper then buy it.

    the wii version with a higher res HUD and AA and whatnot, ported to the ps3/360 as a downloadable thing

    on the one hand the idea of the graphics being upscaled appeals to me

    on the other hand I feel like the aiming controls in RE4Wii are one of the few really great examples of motion controls

  • VALVEjunkieVALVEjunkie Registered User regular
    yeah, it would have been nice if they included Move controls for the ps3 version but oh well.

    oh, the textures weren't upressed, just the UI. if you get really close to a wall it looks blurry and stuff like that.

    also does anyone remember all the horse tricks you can do with Agro

    I'm trying to get the trophy for doing them all

    so far I've got:

    stand up while riding
    crouch while riding
    leap onto him
    roll over and ride on either side of him
    push down + X to make him instantly get up to full speed or instantly stop

    The only other thing I can think of is maybe I have to find a place to make him leap a gap

    I mean I guess that's to be expected with it being an arcade/psn release

    but still sorta disappointing

    Speed Racer on
  • VALVEjunkieVALVEjunkie Registered User regular
    yeah, deffo.

    so are there any new things coming in SotC that the US didn't get first time around? like Ico?

  • Speed RacerSpeed Racer Scritch scratch scritch scratch scritch scratch scritch scratch scritch scratch scritch scratch scritch scratch scritch scratch scritch scratch scritch scratch scritch scratch scritch scratchRegistered User regular
    I don't think so. I'm pretty sure we got the good version the first time 'round

  • VALVEjunkieVALVEjunkie Registered User regular
    sweet

    also c'mere so I can kick you in the dick

    no no it's cool just a quick dick kick

    gonna kick all up on that dick

  • chrishallett83chrishallett83 Hi! Registered User regular
    yeah

    E: I mean, it still looks good, just not as good as it could have.

    Hmm. Looks a bit better than the PS2 version, which is the only version I've ever played (dozens and dozens of times)...

  • FlayFlay Registered User regular
    Definitely buying this.

    I was super lucky and found the postcard edition of SotC brand new for $20 just after it came out, but it'll be nice to have a version that doesn't lag like hell.

    yeah

    The PS2 version is the worst-looking version so yeah

    isn't the wii version based on the ps2 version though for some asinine reason

    SOTC was amazing but the control scheme makes the fucking
    snake boss
    nearly fucking impossible

    riding and trying to aim your bow directly behind you is bullshit

    I own this now.

    Also, RE4 looks alright on the 360. I wasn't expecting them to make too many changes.

    I forgot this was coming out but Dark Souls and DR2 Off the Record are a better use of my time than playing games I've already beaten before

    I've got DR2: Off the Record, Batman: Arkham City, Uncharted 3, and Skyrim preordered.


    I'm glad Skyrim comes out last since it will be the longest game on this list.

    I did, it's just hard to keep track of your position in the arena while you're aiming and then suddenly whump you are in a wall

    i mean i beat it eventually but it felt more like luck than skill

    I just finished RE4 HD the other day. It looks fine. I mean sure it could look better, but it wasn't really bothersome to me

    Although I did start the Separate Ways missions yesterday (never played the PS2 version) and it uses super shitty FMVs for the cutscenes instead of the in-game engine. They didn't get worked on at all for the HD release

    Game is still fucking fantastic, though
