    I'd love to see a reboot of Parasite Eve. It had a great story and an interesting lead character. I could see some next gen graphics and fast paced shooting action really open up this world to those who've never experienced it.
  • Doomchicken42 - March 7, 2013 8:21 a.m.

    I'd like to see a reboot to Dino Crisis. Make a terrifying game about dinosaurs, I'm thinking first person perspective as you navigate the halls of abandoned labs on a secluded island where your boat has crashed and you're searching for your husband. A completely vulnerable character without any weapons would be awesome, ratcheting up the fear factor while making running a natural gameplay mechanic. They could even refer to the old games by having the t-rex be the main antagonist.

    I think it would be really awesome to have a Mega Man reboot, one based on the Protomen (a kickass band that you should all go check out) version of the Mega Man story. Such a game could really focus on the grim and dark reality of a city run by an evil overlord and his robot masters, with a defeated and servile populace who will whisper about a hero, but turn their backs when one shows up. It could really explore the psychology of an occupied area, one that has been too long living under a tyranny to really want or even know what freedom means. Also, it would have the most awesome soundtrack of the year, if not the decade.
  • punkjames - March 5, 2013 8:41 a.m.

    I want a ps3/4 reboot of syphon filter to happen. its one of sonys oldest ips and also one of the most neglected and would look amazing in a next gen. when we are already getting so many similar games to it being made there is more then enough room for it.
  • n00b - March 4, 2013 7:35 p.m.

    They should like remake bomber man but like make it all serious and realistic. So bomberman man will be an alias for Walter Daniels, a genius chemist who is almost fifty but just couldn't make it big with his skills and is going through a mid life crisis. He then get contact with a shady people who put his chemistry skills to work. At first he's just mixing chemicals but after a few jobs he begins to get suspicious of what they want. He then realizes that he is making explosives that are being sold to terrorist organizations. Outraged about what he's doing, he decides to continue because his family needs the money. I dono how gameplay will work because screw fun and larger than life characters, we need them all the relocatable and human.
  • ultimatepunchrod - March 4, 2013 11:38 a.m.

    I would really like a Medievil reboot. The PSP remake was kind of a half step and it's old enough to have its own reboot now anyway. Most of the stuff from the original is still pretty awesome as far as the structure of the game goes. You play through levels with puzzles, hidden areas, and hidden items, and then if you find the chalice of souls you go to the hall of heroes and get a new weapon/more money/health upgrades, and some of the boss fights still hold up well even when I take off my nostalgia glasses. I'd want the original game's setting as well. Being in actual Medieval times rather than 1800s London would be awesome. The game also had a great sense of humor which would need to remain intact. The only big changes that would need to be made would be modernizing the actual gameplay. Fix the combat (it's pretty awful when you aren't using ranged weapons) and platforming (imprecise because of PS1 camera techniques). Since Sir Dan was in Playstation All Stars, it could mean that there's enough interest in the series. I can dream.
  • wadesmit - March 5, 2013 3:15 a.m.

    And I'll dream with you, man. I just hope our cries are heard at last. Though I would like the theoretical sequel/reboot to be more in-line with Medievil 2.
  • ultimatepunchrod - March 5, 2013 9:15 a.m.

    I actually never got to play the sequel until the other day. I wanted to buy it legitimately from used game stores or amazon, but the former didn't have it, and the latter had it for $60. I thought maybe Sony would put it up on PSN as a classic but no luck. Now I'm playing it through *cough cough* less legitimate means.
  • wadesmit - March 5, 2013 2:26 p.m.

    I found a lot of people didn't like it as much as the first, but I played MediEvil 2 before MediEvil 1, so for that reason I liked it more. But 2 is a much more... evil and dark-feeling experience, some areas even being genuinely unnerving. Enjoy! And then cry as we wait even longer for at least some news of another MediEvil game... Oh how I wish.

    This was a great episode, some really lol Moments, i was late and hate to listen to this on the way to college. Eternal Darkness would be freaking awesome now. Iwata and Miyamoto helped in producing, and even was publshed entirely by Nintendo for Rated M, i dont know if this makes it their property since sillicone is the ones who made it but that doesnt change the fact that we NEED a new game -This just in, after the podcast, ubisoft's "Secret Service" came to Cooper and "Took care" of him for a day and half XD Kojima will always throw off the living crap out of you, even rising did it. He will forever be the jokester. Speaking of Capcom, whatever happened to that game that was supposedly made by the creator of Megaman about a Pirate Penguin? I would seriously buy the "Gordon Freeman hitting some guy with a crowbar" Hat I heard the portion after the ending theme, i would have to say Playstation Alllstars Battle Royale is a game that gets better overtime. You wuld probably spend the first Hour and half bitching about why its not Sony Smash Bros gameplay after Sony kept advertising it like it, but then realize that the more you understand the games battle system andlearn more tricks and exploits, you start liking the game better for what it is. As for Question of the Week: SAKURAI, You said you would give another dead Nintendo Franchise the Pit Revivial Treatment! DO IT TO STAR TROPICS
  • shawksta - March 4, 2013 9:41 a.m.

    *Had to listen to this on the way to college, not hate, i enjoyed listenting to this while traveling actually, but it makes me laugh in front of people and darn it all.

    TIE Fighter. Not Rogue Squadron, not X-Wing, not Rebel Assault. TIE Fighter. TIE Fighter wasn't just the perfect simulation of what it would be like to actually fight those wars... in the stars, it was also amazing from a storytelling perspective. Every other Star Wars game, you end up playing a Rebel or someone who finds out the Empire is doing something wrong with some horrible death machine... but in TIE Fighter you actually get to see what life in the Imperial Navy is like for the majority. You are defending peace from terrorists and traitors. You are a hero of the Empire without having to take a Dark Side route. In almost every other property in the Star Wars universe, you're forced to wonder why anyone would serve in such an obviously evil organization, but the Empire isn't just spending all its time oppressing people, for a great many people they are protectors keeping order in an unstable galaxy... and seeing that side makes you feel a bit bad for all of the Imperials you've had to kill in every other game who truly are just trying to keep the galaxy safe for their loved ones.
  • antiAntag0nist - March 3, 2013 8:05 p.m.

    Jet Set Radio!!!!! A new JSR on next gen consoles would be an amazing sight to see.
  • archnite - March 3, 2013 6:32 p.m.

    Spyro the Dragon. Make it less about actual jumpy platforming and more about being a giant mother-snapping dragon. You'd still be able to run like crazy and collect stuff, but you'd also be able to fly for real and terrorize small villages of polygon people. Also, don't make Spyro talk. Dragon's should be silent unless they're shouting.
  • wadesmit - March 4, 2013 10:30 a.m.

    I would be really happy with this. Collecting them gems was a beautiful experience. So simple and relaxing.

  • EAC73 - March 3, 2013 11:59 a.m.

    I would love to have a Capcom v.s. SNK reboot. The king of fighters series has pretty much died, and i would love to see the characters like Terry, Rugal, Benimaru, and the some characters from the samurai showdown series. I just want another great Capcom vs game again, and i think the SNK roster has some pretty awesome characters.
  • Daniel Cowen - March 3, 2013 11:07 a.m.

    Resident Evil! Was absolutely nuts about 1 & 2, must've had at least 10 or 12 'Jill Sandwiches' in the good old days. 3 was...almost forgettable apart from the Nemesis, 4 was the beginning of the end, 5 & 6 have just, if you'll pardon the expression, lost the plot. I'm not saying that 4, 5, & 6 aren't GOOD games, but to me apart from holding the house in 4, the whole 'survival' and perhaps even the 'horror' parts of what used to be one of the best series in the genre have fallen by the wayside in exchange for; a ridiculous, overly dramatic, practically spoofish plot; little-to-no scares or tension of any kind, and an over-abundance of healing items and ammo. ---- Also, Silent Hill could do with a few back-to-grass-roots tweaks, but hasn't really gone Capcom-crazy. Yet!!
  • theflyinfoote - March 3, 2013 12:47 a.m.

    I would love to see a Gauntlet reboot. I loved the 64 game and would love to see a 1080p version with couch or live co-op. A good old fashion hack and slash game where you turn into a Minotaur(I always played the warrior of course).
  • duffer00 - March 2, 2013 8:46 p.m.

    Mega man reboot where they change it up and make it unique like they did with X.
