Nice sig bro.

Anyway OP, I'd just go with your pick. Or maybe a modernized, high budget version of the early Phantasy Star games.

Let's ignore the 7th gen reboot and say a new Bionic Commando would be awesome. Or something new with Megaman.

I want Megaman X to get a rerelease on XBLA/PSN/Steam. Because I really want to play Megaman X without having to pirate it.

CONTRA please...

#16 Posted by GreySeal9 (24114 posts) -

This would be more of a remake than reboot, but Phantasy Star 2. It had an incredibly distinct atmosphere, so I'd love to see it get remade with a more fleshed-out story with much more dialogue and character development and less archaic gameplay.

besides the horrible story and werid hair choice the BC game for ps3/360 was good in the gameplay department. swinging felt well done from the transition from 2d to 3d.

Well thank you for saving me time so I didn't have to post those (ps Radiant Silver gun is betterr :P )

Also I agree TC. Im surprised with the Zombie craze recently no one has cashed in on bringing that back, that franchise is literally a gold mine in todays market if they do it right

Radiant Silvergun is too technical for my tastes.

If LucasArts could get their heads out of ther arses and make a PSN/XBL release of an updated X-Wing, Tie Fighter, or even X-Wing vs Tie Fighter, I would be very happy.

I figured a Windows 3.1 game would be on par with 8 bit console games.

Moonstone could see this being like dark souls if remade today.

The Mysterious Murasame Castle

It could happen Takamaru was in Captain Rainbow, He was a sticker in Brawl and the theme song was alson in Brawl, The Japanese version of Warioware D.I.Y. had a minigame based on The Mysterious Murasame Castle, Takamaru was in Samurai Warriors 3 Takamaru is a bonus character in the Murasame Castle mode, Also a minigame in Nintendo Land was based on it and it was titled Takamaru's Ninja Castle. Hideki Kamiya said he wanted to work on this game or Starfox.

Link to gameplay from the Famicom version
