And Then, For A Moment, Remember Me Turned Into The Running Man

One of the oddest parts of Remember Me, which I checked out on Tuesday and liked, was this bit at the very end of my hour-long demo. As Nilin made her way through the game's second level, the malls and apartments were all playing ads playing for this famous bounty-hunter dude who, surprise surprise, turns up at the end as a boss.

But then suddenly, you're both in a televised cage-match straight out of The Running Man. Unexpected? Sure. Kinda cool? Yeah.

What happens next? Well, the demo I was playing faded to black, though an earlier video of the game showed a bit of the fight. I'd imagine that maybe there will be a move where the bad guy charges, and as long as Nilin jumps out of the way fast enough, he crashes into the wall and is rendered dizzy and vulnerable for a little while. Just maybe.


    Since Capcom are publishing it, I could've done with a quick Street Fighter reference in there (maybe the voice over dude from SF2 "ROUND 1! FIGHT!").

    this game does look more and more promising, so let's hope it is a solid title.

    And, like the writer of the article, will lament if the fight is just a dodgy and ram into wall fest like the Bane/Titan battles from Arkham and so many other games out there.
