The HotSpot - Syndicate, Metal Gear, Ninja Gaiden - 2/22/12
Are we talking port, remake, or cover? The HotSpot tries to make sense of the game industry's latest efforts to make old new.
The guns feels great in Syndicate, i get the KZ feel (Heavy) when i shoot in this game its just a great shooter, just wish the gameplay had some stealth and bigger levels.
further reading: Harold Bloom - The Anxiety of Influence: A Theory of Poetry (1973) - about inspiration and influence through the subject of poetry wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Anxiety_of_Influence - also, if you are really, r e a l l y, into Art, I recommend 16th century painter & architect Giorgo Vasari's famous book: Le Vite de' più eccellenti pittori, scultori, e architettori da Cimabue insino a' tempi nostri (1550). You learn a lot & it helps you to understand the creative process & video games better.
a remake of a game ?? will it be different or just better in two departments like ,graphics,, and painting
As a fan of the original Syndicate game i am very dissapointed with this new version, it is not a bad game and of course is not a dumb game, it takes some elements from the original and apply them in a good way,THE BAD THINGS in this remake or "cover" are: first the lenght of the game,it's way too short (both modes) it feels like an arcade shooter (as an arcade shooter Section 8 prejudice is way better than this),second the focus of the gameplay feels like cod game not like a Syndicate game,and it's no for the shooting itself ,it's because it has nothing more, the concept of the group of agents was totally dumped in the single player campaign, it would be really cool to give orders to the other agents like in mass effect 2 or even change the agent you're playing with to achieve different goals like in the original game where you can customize every agent with different weapons and implants to achieve specific goals, third, EA and their annoying "trend" of putting multiplayer only for xbox live, i know that is for money but come on NOT everybody has xbox live and there are some persons that actually have REAL FRIENDS to play with so,where is the split screen mode?where is the system link mode? why i can't play the co-op missions alone without xbox live like in The Darkness 2?
