Dream a little Dream...
Ducktales remastered is finally out! And the critics don't seem horribly fond of it overall. Because it's short? It's $15! Because it's hard? The original was controller-shattering hard, this is the same game. Just lower the difficulty, I'm playing it on easy and having a blast. Some don't seem to like the added cut-scenes and dialogue. I guess that's really a matter of opinion, but as someone who loved the show I find it charming and full of fun nostalgia. And then some complained that it should've been changed up for modern times. ARE YOU FUCKING NUTS?!? Nobody wanted that. We wanted our goddamn cane-hopping original Ducktales. Don't get me wrong, I can see doing that in a follow-up, but for this we just wanted our old original classic game on current platforms. This does that and wonderfully. The only minor complaint is that the backgrounds don't mesh that well with the extremely good-looking sprites, but it's hardly a big detractor. Anyways, if you fondly remember this game, pick it up you won't be disappointed. Hopefully if they follow up with a Rescue Rangers update they will do the same amount of minimal meddling-basically a fresh change of paint, some added dialogue scenes and some sweet remixed tunes.
That's all for today, I should have a Gamer Cinema post up tomorrow or Saturday.
