    I still think Sony did something very stupid ditching this game.

    That first teaser gameplay trailer did not impress me at the time, but I have to say this is quite a lovely trailer. Happy its not another mediocre shooter.

    Interesting.

    @1/7 You don’t think Sony have enough exclusives to worry about?
    Oh ok, well money problems were the cause of that.

    @4 It wouldn’t have hurted and it would have possibly built connection with a talented studio.

    @6 haha actually i wasn’t serious and i’m absolutely fine with the main character.

    but virtual female or not , sex sells
    and more sex appeal will certainly help sell few extra copies.

    Yeah I know haha I totally agree. I hope Beyond Two Souls sells very well and not just because of the many pedophiles out there lol.

    Naw, gonna skip that like a beat. Something tells me the trailer makes it look better than the actual product will ever be.

    Doesn’t help that the art-direction is ‘confused’ at best.

    Don’t like the look of the main character at all.

    It would be an interesting game if she was able to obtain one if those suits to give her more melee strength. Either that or give her interesting melee weapons and more complicated combos. But as it stands now, this is certainly looking like a game to rent at best, but most likely skip.

    Not sold on this one. It looks like an interesting sci-fi movie but like a game with all the combo-jumping-beat-em-up stuff; no thanks.

    I WAS going to skip this game purely because Capcom is publishing it and DmC, RE6 and treatment of Mega Man fans has made me feel they don’t deserve money. But with all the current and popular representations of women currently out there, I think it’s necessary for me to make an exception here. Hopefully this game succeeds and actually strong female protagonists get to make a comeback after a generation of being redefined in terrible ways.

    @13 I think Female characters have made a somewhat good comeback this year. You see them in games like Tomb Raider, BEYOND Two Souls, The Last Of Us and Remember Me. Tomb Raider succeeded in bringing females back in the light, saleswise it was failure in Sqaure Enix’s eyes but in my opinion it has done extremely well and with the last three games having females as strong leads in them its very beneficial as this can lead to female heroes.

    hmm this game seems interesting, especially the Combo Lab, still I don’t see why a female lead should affect the selling point I’d buy a game regardless as long as it’s fun to play.

    i don’t like this trailer too flashy, they should have calmed down so we can see the combat properly:/

    because it feels like a rental

    @14: I’d disagree. Tomb Raider is really 3rd Birthday with less sexual objectification, and 3rd Birthday without the sexual objectification was basically a story of a woman with amnesia (as far as people knew beforehand) terrified of combat and in need of men making her do it to go past her “natural” default of being weak and scared. I know much, much less about BEYOND Two Souls and The Last Of Us, so I could be completely mistaken and hope I am corrected if that is the case. The Last Of Us appears to be another case of a female character that acts innocent, scared and weaker than men, and needs the guy to help her survive. I haven’t paid attention to BEYOND outside E3, so I don’t even have impressions.

    This is in contrast to all the other strong female protagonists being redefined. I said the Tomb Raider issue. There’s Aya Brea, who aside from much of the same problems personality-wise, suffered from gameplay, dialogue and cinematics geared specifically toward treating her like a sexual object; the scene with Maeda used as a self-insert for Toriyama (in much the same way Toriyama used Brother in FFX-2) is the most blatant point. There’s Jill Valentine, who after she got body-controlled (YET STILL AWARE) to spend two years helping Wesker ruin her life’s work and kill her old comrades, it all culminated in Jill not even getting a chance to get some closure to her suffering because the game clearly treated Chris’ “suffering” at her presumed death and seeing her treated that way as far far more important. Of course, Claire Redfield was reduced in Degeneration to a damsel in distress not once but twice, needing Leon to come save her. Both Jill and Claire were left out of RE6. There’s Samus Aran, who in Other M gave permission to her old male mentor Adam to decide whether or not she should use her equipment to not die, along with Anthony Higgs needing to save her from being killed by Ridley when she suddenly has an emotional breakdown (because Samus freeing herself instead is just impossible).

    Literally every once strong female protagonist has been redefined as scared and weak, incapable of saving themselves without male influence. This is why I now think it’s so important for this game to succeed. With such an onslaught of depictions where women apparently need to be weak and scared inferiors to men, Remember Me is looking like a game where the female protagonist is actually strong and capable naturally and of her own being. And she’s not being (at least so far) treated like a sex object in the process. Though of course, as we know by how people have acted in the past, if this series succeeds and spawns sequels where the character is sexualized, most people will just assume the character has always been nothing but a pair of boobs and demand the character get radically changed.

    @13: The important question here is: Can she climb a chopper? Also I saw material of her crying and asking a man for help. True story.

    @17, Yeah I somewhat agree with salarta there, I must say that it does seem to be a popular trend to have a female lead (or other character) being scared and in need of male assistance, I very much noticed this in the new Tomb Raider game which disappointed me, but from what I can see from Beyond Two Souls and The Last of Us they seem to be breaking away from that trend, with the exception of The Last of Us simply because I mean yes the character is female but she’s very young so she’s only as scared as she is because of her age, and even then she’s still a lot more brave then you would expect, she follows you anywhere helping out where she can, if anything you ask for her assistance haha.
    (By the way, it’s good to be back online in the VG247 comments, it’s been a while)

    @21: When did Lara get any male assistance?

    #23 1 year ago
  24. Nath_gamer

    @23, she does in the new one at one point, but that wasn’t my point, now instead of being a strong bad-ass type like Lara was in the previous games, she now seems like a complete wimp and a scaredy cat, though I can see how they’ve tried to use that to make her more relate-able and such but it doesn’t come off as that to me, it’s just plain annoying.

    While that may have occurred with Lara more directly in the course of the game (I can’t confirm anything in that regard as I haven’t played it and never will), it’s true from the start because Lara had to be trained by a man prior to the game’s events, which in itself isn’t necessarily a bad thing until we get to where she STILL acts scared, weak and in need of rescue. The only reason she progresses to strong is because her only other option is to die by strangulation at the hands of a man; if someone had rescued her before that point, end of story, no future adventures for Lara because she has been redefined so that the type of risk that is involved in exploring treacherous tombs and facing death is not inherently something she can handle as an adult.

    Hopefully Remember Me is a worthy replacement for the old Lara insofar as having a badass female protagonist that is just as naturally strong and capable as the men around her.

    I don’t remember her getting any assistance. Whenever she asks, people tell her that they can’t help. Yep, even the women.

    She’s still a young woman, with no experience surviving a situation like this. They tried to make the game realistic. Making her some bad-ass for no reason would’ve been ridiculous.

    Most of us would’ve died when we’d been in situation like this.

    salatfinger keeps talking about Jill from RE1, but she needed a lot of help from Barry in the first game, otherwise she would be a Jill-Sandwich.

    He fails to understand that the game tries to be realistic. Lara behaves in a realistic way. She’s scared, because she has not experienced cannibals, mass murder and demons before. She can’t be a badass from the get go. You don’t leave college to become a badass tomb raider. You need experience. That’s what she got and then some.

    End of the discussion.

    Indeed, as realistic as going from innocent child to female Rambo in the space of a few hours and firing arrows at the speed of a gun gets. Okay, that last part is exaggerated, but it’s still faster than realistic.

    Since the supposed emphasis is on “realism,” the new Lara better suffer from regular PTSD attacks in future games to maintain the notion of realism. Since Rambo as originally conceived (as in, not the muscle-bound meathead people imagine him to be) is exactly how the new Lara would behave following such events if we’re trying to paint a realistic picture here, in terms of the horrible flashbacks and non-social behavior that is. Though if we were being properly realistic, Lara would never traverse a tomb again after the latest game’s events. I highly doubt that will happen though.

    And the above is something I refuse to argue over. I felt the need to point it out, I did, end of story.

    @27 well said, I never said I wanted the new Lara to be bad-ass, and I agree with everything @25 and @26 said, but that doesn’t change my opinion on the game, I didn’t like the game for many reasons, one of which was the way Lara acted in the face of danger almost as if she is completely useless.

    In conclusion:

    “Let me tell you more about a game I’ve never played.”

    @28: Thanks, though I may refrain from further discussion about the game for a little while because I’m now legitimately pissed off about the new Tomb Raider. Going to try to pull back before I start saying things that shouldn’t be said. Glad to know someone else cares about perception and treatment of the character.

    @30 Agreed.

    @30: “I may refrain from further discussion about the game for a little while”

    No, no, you won’t. Next time someone mentions Resident Evil, you probably will bring up Sandwich Jill and how it’s an outrage that she isn’t in RE6 and how female characters from older games are being mistreated in todays industry.

    Then you move over to your favorite subject: Games you have never played and why they suck.

    All in one post, of course.

    Hey calm down YoungZer0, I’m not saying he doesn’t do those things but that was totally uncalled for and came out of nowhere, He also didn’t exactly say “I’ve never played this game but it sucks” not in as many words but you know what I mean, you can’t take something out of context and say it’s something someone always does. (I’m not on anyone’s side or anything but I just think that was uncalled for)

    #33 1 year ago
  34. YoungZer0

    @33: You might have missed all the other hundreds of comments he made about the game which essentially were exactly like one you read. So no, not uncalled for. There is a reason why people start rolling their eyes whenever he steps into the comment section.

    He doesn’t talk about anything else.

    #34 1 year ago
  35. Nath_gamer

    I know I saw, but still, to just point it out without being provoked to do so, it seems uncalled for because he didn’t just do it then.
