Remember Me

I played the intro level of Remember Me and found myself thinking if choosing it over Deadpool was the right move. Let’s start with the plus points first.

The game looks very good. The visuals do a great job of immersing you in the world of Neo-Paris and the science fiction that it’s trying to present. I like the way the story is set up, mixing a standard escape sequence with the horror of the game’s premise.

The gameplay feels a bit lackluster so far. I’ve only seen the combat and the platforming and both of them leave something to be desired. The former feels awkward, requiring stricter timing with even the basic moves while managing to look unrewarding. There’s no style, no flair in the way the main character fights. Jumping, climbing and shimmying along rails isn’t a smooth affair either. Overall, it seems like it wants to be a great action game and a great platformer. It’s falling short of both for now.

Marvel VS Capcom 3


Here’s a quick summary of my MvC3 team: X-23 is out, She-Hulk is in, I can’t do anything without Tron assist, the third party member is a tie between Dormammu and Spencer.

Some Mass Effect Love

I’m back to playing Mass Effect 2 after downloading its latest DLC, Arrival, using the Vanguard class. I know it’s late, but I haven’t been staying home for about a month now so I didn’t have access to the computer where the game was installed until the other day. In case you haven’t heard about it, Arrival is the last "bridging" DLC that will fill the gap between Mass Effect 2 and 3. If you’re interested in reading a few details about the third installment, you can get it here and here. Scans of the Game Informer source article are available here.

If you really have a lot of time to spare and would like to get into the lore of Mass Effect, this timeline article from the wiki should get you going.
