Remember Me review: risks without reward

Remember Me review: risks without reward

You only have one chance to make a first impression. Remember Me's first impression is what kept me playing well past the point I would've walked away otherwise. Its opening few hours are a dizzying array of gorgeous aesthetics, jargon overload and combat I thought wasn't quite clicking because I'm rhythmically challenged. I thought that the longer I played the kinks would work themselves out and I'd be able to cope with its rough edges because everything else felt so fresh and daring. The truth is they never did. From the first enemy encounter and uncertain jump to my last, very little changed aside from how I felt about the game.

Remember Me preview: c-c-combo breaker

Remember Me preview: c-c-combo breaker

It's not difficult to see why Capcom picked up Dontnod Entertainment's Remember Me. It's a stylish brawler, with an interesting combo-building mechanic set in a fascinating futuristic world. The game takes full advantage of its memory-based narrative, offering interesting ways of interacting with people's memories. Yet, in spite of all the incredible things Remember Me does, it fails to execute on the fundamental gameplay mechanics. In short, it may look like a Capcom game--but it certainly doesn't play like one.

The future dreamt up by Dontnod is intriguing. People are able to store, share, and relive memories--and like a drug, many become dependent on the technology. The game begins with Nilin waking up from a memory-wiping operation, where an evil corporation has attempted to extract her memories. Now stricken with amnesia, she is intercepted by a group know as the "Errorists," that are trying to free people from the monolithic rule of memory technology.

Remember Me trailer details skill of remixing memories

Remember Me trailer details skill of remixing memories

Capcom's upcoming Remember Me has teased the escapades of memory hunter Nilin, and her ability to take the memories of her enemies. A new trailer shows exactly what she can do with them once she has gathered them.

"Nilin can render a stolen memory in real time and in three dimensions," said Dontnod Entertainment creative director Jean-Maxime Moris in the narrated video. Another special power Nilin has is the Memory Remix, which allows the player to change key details in a person's memory to make alter their behavior. Check out the video for an explanation of the process.

Remember Me creative director discusses gender equality

Dontnod Entertainment has said that casting Remember Me's Nilin as the lead in its upcoming action-adventure "just felt right," but the creative director Jean-Maxime Moris told Shacknews that the game is more about putting men and women on the same social and professional footing than the developer first envisioned.

Remember Me PC specs revealed with new trailer

Remember Me PC specs revealed with new trailer

Former memory hunter Nilin is going to have to do a lot of acrobatic punching, kicking and brawling in the upcoming cyberpunkish Remember Me. At least that's what's on display in the new trailer showing many of the enemies and bosses she will run up against, when the game comes out June 4 on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Of course, if you'll be doing all the physical combat on the PC, Capcom was nice enough to release the PC specs for the game as well.

Remember Me rejected by publishers due to female protagonist

Remember Me rejected by publishers due to female protagonist

Remember Me is a cyberpunk adventure featuring a heroine named Nilin attempting to find her memories in 2084's Neo-Paris. The fact that Nilin is a "she" instead of a "he" caused reservations among publishers, though, as creative director Jean-Maxime Moris says some were unwilling to take on the game due to her gender.

Remember Me trailer shows off a boss fight

With a title like Remember Me, you'd think that Dontnod Entertainment's upcoming game is a mind-bending point-and-click adventure. But, no. It is about punching and kicking many men in the face.

In a new video released by Capcom today, memory hunter Nilin gets her kicks in, facing off against the oddly-named Kid Xmas who runs a hacking channel in Neo-Paris called Channel Fear.

Remember Me gameplay trailer goes on the run

Remember Me gameplay trailer goes on the run

Since announcing at E3 that it'd picked up Dontnod's cyberpunk game Adrift and renamed it Remember Me, Capcom has handled its marketing in a pleasing way. No streams of flashy but pointless trailers and no developer diaries with people talking about how special it is, but plenty of gameplay footage. Like this, 9 minutes of straight gameplay footage Capcom first streamed during Gamescom and has now shared for all to see.

Remember Me to get advice from Street Fighter director

Remember Me to get advice from Street Fighter director

Although Remember Me didn't start life as a Capcom project, it's slowly turning into one, now that the Japanese publisher has picked up the rights to the game. In fact, Capcom isn't just publishing the game--it's collaborating with developer Dontnod Entertainment by giving them access to Yoshinori Ono, producer of the Street Fighter franchise.

"It's a bit like the situation Capcom has with [Devil May Cry developer] Ninja Theory," Capcom's Mat Hart explained. "The strategy of western development is building teams together--Capcom and a developer coming together and making a game together."

Adrift picked up by Capcom, renamed Remember Me
