I'm going to fuck Tecmo until they love me

I just had a look at the Rygar "remake".

They Squeenixed it! The Greco-Roman look of the PS2 game that I loved so much has been replaced with... ugh... well...

AFTER: http://images.elotrolado.net/news2/110507190020_1big.jpg

What the fuck is this focus-grouped, anime shit? I'm supposed to review this when it finally comes out?

I'm going to rape this game, I think. Hard. I won't even call it afterwards.

The second picture isn't showing. I just get a Elotrolado.net logo.

And yeah, the change is dramatic.

I don't really think it's too bad of a change - it's less anime and more CG, really.

It's all stupid. It's like someone in a project meeting said "hey! Let's make our Rygar look like Dante from Devil May Cry!"

< Fails to see the big deal.

Assuming that this is the image you're talking about (or even this one), all I can think is that the man has got some impressive hair gel skills going on there...

[edit] and that apparently, I can't do HTML worth shit :'D

That's the one.

It's shameful. Everyone is going "what's the big fuckin' deal", but LOOK AT THE DIFFERENCE. They turned Rygar into a fucking 4Kids cartoon! Look at the belts! Look at the hair! Look at the faggotry! He looks like a TWEWY reject!

I googled the old version, and the old version looked semi-realistic, at least on the cover. This just looks so... gar that it's ridiculous. WHERE ARE THOSE MUSCLES COMING FROM is what I'd like to know. They took something that I could believe and turned it into a caricature. It's the same thing I thought when I saw the KH versions of the FF characters. Really? That omggawth wing is significant to the storyline? Really?

[edit] I'm putting my glasses on now... that might help with the TYPOS.

I see the difference.

I don't see the big deal.

Greco Roman style transforms into Tetsuya Nomura style.

Think of it this way, someone remade the original Advance Wars in the style of Days of Ruin.

I have to agree with DMA here. It's a remake - it's not going to be the same. If they want to fuck with the style, let them do it. If anything, I thought games were more about plot and keeping you occupied. You're making a mountain out of a molehill - you're no better than the people who complain about things like Pit's style from NES to SSBB, or the twenty different versions of Link.

It's clearly Western-inspired, but the original art style is about as Greco-Roman as Disney's Hercules. And, to be quite honest, the change isn't even as ground-breaking as everyone's making it out to be. But hoo-boy, it's JAPANERIFIC! That must mean Nomura's at fault somehow, because all anime designs in games are JUST LIKE Nomura's and JUST AS EVIL.



As for Days of Ruin, I honestly don't dislike the artwork. All things considered and shoddy sprites aside, the art is actually pretty enjoyable (and they already used a similar style in Dual Strike). I hate Days of Ruin because the game itself sucks.

I don't know... It's a dramatic change, and I do prefer the old version to the new version (to be fair, I'm getting a bit tired of anime getting into my videogames), but looking at it, I can immediately say that it could be a lot worse.

At least they had the decency to give the guy facial hair and SOME musculature (even if the whole thing does look like a ripoff of HTK). It COULD have been, say, Sora #23643.

This what happens when Itagaki leaves Tecmo. The cheesecake becomes beefcake.
