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...

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.

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.
