DuckTales/Live and Learn SA2 Mashup (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2vhNay_YNUs)

Also news.

DuckTales Remastered easier for modern players, paves way for future Disney-Capcom games (http://www.polygon.com/2013/3/22/4136816/ducktales-remastered-pax-east-capcom) -- Source: Polygon

"Rey Jimenez (the game's producer) said that the work Capcom put into getting approval from Disney to remaster the game could lead to future remastered releases of other classic Capcom-Disney projects. Those games include classics like Chip n' Dale Rescue Rangers, Darkwing Duck and Aladdin.

All of that will be dictated by how well this game is received though, Jimenez stressed.

What game would be next if Capcom were to do a second remastered release from their Disney days?

"In a purely hypothetical world," Jimenez said, "I think Chip n' Dale would be the next logical one. It makes sense because it's the next in the hierarchy."

But if anyone can weave that updated narrative, it's WayForward.  The Shantae games had good narratives and storytelling.  Nothing rivaling great literature, but good "Saturday morning cartoon" stuff.  And Sigma Star Saga had a very good narrative too.  It wasn't Xenogears, but it was above-average Saturday morning cartoon.    

DuckTales Remastered is in good hands.

Yeah. I suppose you all have a point. Besides, with the way you have to go through that spaceship in the original (let alone other stages like the Himalayas, Transylvania, and the Mines), having to look for piece parts along the way might actually with navigation or provide a better sense of progress (or hinder them if say you missed a semi-difficult to reach chest with a vital piece needed to advance and then you have to go back).

Pardon the double post but: http://www.siliconera.com/2013/04/22/ducktales-remastered-tales-of-daring-remakes-and-grandpa-duck/

Okay, now I'm impressed with the effort that's going into this game (and yeah, just reading this makes me feel old "Secret passage? What's that!?").

Also, if I recall correctly, the movie was the last thing that Ducktales did prior to this (outside of comic books and references in other Disney shows/games) and that came out in 1994.

I'm looking forward to this remaster. The graphic direction was handled impressively. I also can't believe they got back the voice actors, especially now that some of them are in their 90s. Wow!! Perhaps if sales do well, we might see other titles revisited (i.e. Talespin, Chip n' Dale Rescue Rangers, Darkwing Duck, Quackshot). Of all those mentioned I'd like to see Quackshot, that game was insanely addictive and challenging back on the ol' days of the Sega Genesis.

I'm glad to see they are looking to do Cn'D next. Like others have said, that one is also a classic. On that note, I seem to remember the Darkwing Duck game as being frustratingly difficult. Or am I thinking of something else...?

I don't really remember much about Duck Tales. The show, yes, but not the game.

I just hope all these remakes are being adjusted to make them a bit more playable. What I tolerated back then, would probably drive me crazy now.

Honestly, I'm not too worried about making this more playable as it was really accessible back in the day. The game was built on the NES Megaman engine, Scrooge's actions only consisted of running, jumping, climbing, pogosticking, and golf swinging, and the 5 stages are for the most part generally straight forward, plus Launchpad is in pretty much every level to act as a check/escape point. The hardest part for players would be figuring out some of the more obscure hidden passage ways and most of those only led to side rooms with bonuses and goodies.

I pulled the trigger on ordering this from PSN and have the "preorder bonus" DuckTales theme on my PS3 menu page. 

And I'm STILL flabbergasted that Alan Young (OG Scrooge) and June Foray (OG Majica) are voicing this.  I mean, they're both, what, 95 or something?  Wow, I'd be the luckiest duck alive if I'm 95 and still working, let alone just functioning if I'm not already dead.  I think the guy who voiced Glomgold died in '94 so he's being voiced by an in-house Disney guy for this one. 

As for playability/balancing/etc. I'm just glad it's been retooled such that you don't have to go through the Transylvania level three times.

You did have to do the level multiple times in its entirety, though.  Once to fight Magica and once to fight Dracula Duck.  Transylvania itself was a cool enough level, but being thrust in it multiple times was like too much of a good thing.

To be fair though, they needed someplace to hold the Magica fight and the Golmgold race. I guess they could move it to either Scrooge's Vault or his BatDuckcave (assuming those aren't the same thing).

Post by: Dincrest on August 13, 2013, 10:21:29 PM
My impressions of DuckTales: Remastered-

The game is good, but it's very old school.  Even in easy mode, I died a LOT.  The Amazon level's boss was damn near merciless; they made him more difficult in the new version.  I've only done the Amazon and African Mines so far.  The game is fun; it's the old DuckTales we know and love, but with added dialogues, cutscenes, remastered music, great graphics, and everything.  It sounds like the voice cast had a great time doing the skits.  The only negative I have is that the jumping (both regular and pogo) is a little floaty, but it's nothing I can't get used to.  I want to try the NES original just to see if the control is any better or worse.    

Definitely a good nostalgia trip for people our age who grew up playing this on the NES and it makes me think "Damn, how the hell did I beat this game as a kid?  This is brutal!"

Well, it does seem they tweaked enough of the game to be potentially harder or at least longer, namely the boss fights, but I think when it comes to that question specifically all it takes is looking at what other NES games there were to go "oh, right, this was one of the easier ones."

And we probably are used to quite a few modern conveniences by now, IE not losing lives when we fall in pits or even having lives in the first place. Hell, the one series that still carries those torches, Mario, has become something of a joke when it comes to lives, just handing them to you like candy, if I was stuck at 1-4 spare lives all the time in many New Super Mario Bros games like I am here I'd probably be constantly thrown back to fortresses/castles and have to replay stages all the time, rather than being disappointed I no longer capped out my lives.

It's on my "Wish List" of games to play down the road.  I own the original cartridge and have loved the game for many years now.  I just have one question: Is there an option to switch the music to it's original counterpart?  It would be awesome to hear the original soundtrack.  Maybe once I'm done with Dragon's Crown and Final Fantasy XIV: ARR, I might just be able to get around to checking out Ducktales: Remastered.

Post by: Dincrest on August 14, 2013, 10:46:50 AM
No, it's just the remastered music in the game, which itself is really good.  I don't miss the old 8-bit PCM music.  There is a bunch of unlockable content like character art, concept art, music, etc.  I haven't unlocked the music yet, so I don't know if the original 8-bit PCM is in there or not. 

Compare the original 8-bit moon theme: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KF32DRg9opA

And the DuckTales: Remastered version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T1zeUIffyac

(And for a lark, my favorite rendition of the Moon theme: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zzC3UuI__Zo)

Title: Re: THEY'RE BRINGING BACK DUCKTALES (WOO-OO)
Post by: Monsoon on August 14, 2013, 01:11:49 PM
Okay, I played three of the main stages, and I have to say that this game 1) looks and sounds lovely, 2) rekindles a lot of positive nostalgia I have for the NES version, and 3) has more negative changes than positive ones. 

I like the retooled bosses (original bosses were too boring, these are pretty good) and the new audio and visuals, but this is the same 2-button gameplay we had before, and there is virtually nothing new about the stages or basic gameplay/  The new material, like the voice work, brief cutscenes, and opening bit in Scrooge's mansion, is ultimately not worth it and bogs the game down rather than enhances it.  If you own the original cart and are thinking about this, try before you buy. 

But do I like it?  Sure.  The bosses are nice, the voice work is a little much but occasionally charming, and there might be some cool endgame stuff I haven't encountered yet.  I think that this game has aged decently, but I wish that a full $15 remake would have added some twists or new stuff that is both interesting and beyond cosmetic.  So far that wasn't the case.  I still like DuckTales, but this new one isn't new enough. 

EDIT: and please, this game was never hard and still isn't hard.  Every single Mega Man game ever made is tougher.  The new bosses are harder, but those old bosses NEEDED an upgrade in difficulty.

Post by: Monsoon on August 14, 2013, 02:46:32 PM
Based on Gamespot's usual numbering, I think that review was too harsh.  Still, their complaints aren't necessarily wrong.  The platforming is okay (better than they're indicating, but maybe below par) and the bosses are better than the original game, but most of the additions are bleh and the nuts and bolts of DuckTales are showing their age. 
Title: Re: THEY'RE BRINGING BACK DUCKTALES (WOO-OO)
Post by: Giga_Force on August 14, 2013, 03:51:20 PM
I think the reviewer had made an article about Nostalgia blinding us or something of that nature. Just by looking at D:R, it looks to be a solid game.
Title: Re: THEY'RE BRINGING BACK DUCKTALES (WOO-OO)
Post by: Dincrest on August 14, 2013, 04:32:50 PM
I'm having a great time with it.  It's not perfect by any means, but neither was the original.  Yes, I'd like the jumping in DT:R to be a little less floaty but I got used to it and have been kicking tail.  And I would have liked swimming in Scrooge's money bin to have a few extra dynamics.  Like maybe he could play with an earned treasure to trigger a mini-game.  Or have him do different swimming strokes.  

I think as a love letter to the original, WayForward nails it.  And it almost seems damned if you do, damned if you don't.  Add too much to it and nostalgia freaks complain that it's not true to the original.  Don't do enough modern enhancements and everyone complains you just ported or ROM-dumped it without doing anything.  In this case, I think WayForward got the balance just right.  I LOVE how each stage feels like an interactive episode of the cartoon. 

Would a modern gamer born after 1990 appreciate it as much as oldheads like us?  Probably not, because they didn't grow up with DuckTales.  Like I remember my parents showing me this old movie they really liked.  It was a solid movie but there was this one explosion scene they were totally ga-ga over and hyped it up for me.  When that scene came, the explosion was weaksauce for me because I've grown up in a cinematic era of epic explosions.  Back in my parents' time, explosions were uncommon in film, so that one was the biggest of its time.  I appreciated that scene for its historical significance, but I didn't get that visceral feeling from it like my parents did, because they remembered back when they were kids.  

So, basically, DuckTales: Remastered is a game 100% for a particular niche and that niche will love it.  

I think this video shows the best side-by-side comparison: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_pkk7JXS24w

Confirmed.  You have to complete the game first before you can unlock the 8-bit music option. 

And be warned, the final level, post
Code: [Select]
Dracula Duck where you race Magica and Glomgold to the #1 dime, can be really cheap.  Still, it took me back to those old days as a kid where I'd be shouting, "What?!?!  You gotta be kidding!" at the TV whenever I missed a jump. 

Either way, it was an enjoyable game.  I had more fun with it than I have with games 3-4 times the price.  I don't regret preordering this one, especially since the preorder goodie pS3 home screen theme is pretty sweet.

Yeah, it also provides an alternate answer to your "Damn, how the hell did I beat this game as a kid?  This is brutal!" statement: we never beat this, just the game this is based on. Seriously, how the end run was expanded, while well intentioned, is just a few frustrating steps from being a new-yet-reasonable challenge. Slight stage modification and/or more lives would've done wonders.

Finally beat that final level after about 15 tries. I kept getting to the very last jump only to hit the bottom of the platform and fall to my doom. I could end the level with all 3 lives and still not make it because of that last jump.

But I gotta say, that piano version of the Moon Theme during the credits was pretty awesome.
