[up][up]Mega Man 12? There isn't even an 11 yet.

Still, if there's any content that's not in the PS2 version, then WANT.

I've seen this before. Everyone squeals "Yay!!!!!" - then no one actually BUYS it.

Jonah Falcon
Why would I write that?
People buy it, it just turns out there's not that many people who wanted it in the first place. I mean, all the sites, all the threads, all the people who say they want it equate to what, a few hundred? Maybe less? That's just not enough. You gotta pull hundreds of thousands AT LEAST to be considered any kind of success.
Remember! Hyperbole is an exaggeration made for comedic effect, and shouldn't be taken literally!

On the other hand, if you're a fan of the series and own a PS3, what do you care who else buys it? tongue

I'm probably just going to buy the Wii version.

Maaaaaybe get this version so my roommate can play it, but I dunno.

And yeah, all I want is Viewtiful Joe 3. What is the origin of the Black V-Watch? What is that evil castle? What is the third threat?

So yeah, I already own this game. This ISN'T everything I ever wanted from Capcom. THEY ALREADY CANCELLED THAT ONE. Though I wouldn't mind it if this succeeded and managed to spawn Okami 2.

How good is the Wii port, by the way? Whatever the motion controls are like, I think I'll be fine, unless they're monumentally bad. I'm generally fine with Wii controls.
I have a message from another time...
[up] As much as I wanted to like the Wii port of Ōkami, the normal attack waggle on the Wiimote is very unreliable to the point where Amaterasu will often just stand there doing nothing and get hit for it. The only way to reliably attack at that point is Power Slash, and that costs ink.

I should emphasize that I never had that problem in the PS2 version of Okami or The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, which uses the exact same Wiimote accelerometer waggle input for standard attacks. I was always able to attack exactly when I wanted to.

While this HD port sounds interesting, I still don't have a PS3. I'll add it to the list of reasons to get a PS3, though (chief among them being the Yakuza series).

[up][up]Wii controls are passable. Buttons are still better.

The biggest problem with the Wii is that they had to make subtle changes to the graphics to account for the difference in hardware. Because of this, the game has gone from having 'OMG, AWESOME!' looks to merely 'Oooh, pretty.'

It was some sort of filter that did that.

Given that the HD release supports Move, I'd assume this is based off the Wii version. Still, it should be a fairly simple matter to just slap the filter back on.

I dunno. PSN, right? I beefed up my hard drive a couple of months ago, so I don't see why I shouldn't get it.

Eh, I'll get it anyway. Those problems don't sound like anything I can't deal with, and I am increasingly feeling like this is a game I should not miss out on.

I have the Wii version and the only waggle problem I've ever had is that I sometimes dodge left instead of right. Combat didn't suffer for me at all.

Though crossing names off the bounty list can be frustrating until you figure it out.

Okami was pretty great, but I played the PS2 version only recently and I don't see the need to buy the HD version too. All I can say is that they'd better get rid of Blockhead. That guy is freaking impossible to kill, especially in his later appearances where he has an absurd amount of weak points you have to hit dead on.

If I could get some kind of discount due to already owning the PS2 version I'd think about it. Otherwise I don't think the HD upgrade is worth buying the same game twice.

Reaching the Future, the hard way
Well, at least it's only 20 bucks, so people who do want to get the new version (or people who missed out on the original) don't have to pay a crazy amount for a game that's been released twice.

As for the Wii version, I had issues using Glavies, but Rosaries were really easy to use, and those shield weapons weren't too bad if you had a nice rhythm. Dodging could be a pain though.

Guess Who...?
As utterly GLORIOUS as that trailer looked, I had the impeccable timing to have just beaten the PS2 version like two weeks ago. So unless if Capcom pulls something totally out of left field for this release like importing PS2 save data, I think I'll keep my 20 bucks and ability to New Game +.

Now, if a Vita version somehow winds up becoming a thing, I might just go a little nuts and buy this game for a third time. (Need to figure out what on earth to do with that Wii copy lying around, though.)

I'd get this version if I had a PS3. I already have the Wii version. And Ōkamiden. Oh Kurow, you are one totally awesome dude.

Anyway, this looks neat, but I'm not getting a PS3 until Kingdom Hearts III. But this adds another reason to get one.

Kingdom Hearts 3D is Kingdom Hearts III. It's all-original.
