I’ll admit, when I first heard there would be a new Duck Tales game I was taken aback a bit. I mean was this true? Do they even show Duck Tales on TV anymore? would kids even know what it was? These were the questions I asked before I asked the most important one. Do we need another Duck Tales game?
Well some of you might be surprised to learn I’ve come to a neutral bias on this subject. Yes it would have been easy to be fully on board, or fully against it. But we all loved the NES games Duck Tales 1 (superior) Duck tales 2. On the one hand, part of me feels if it ain’t broke don’t try and fix it, redo it, remix it whatever else you can think of. 8 Bit gems should stay 8 Bit gems. Am I crazy to think that there is no way a HD remix or redo/retelling would actually look better. That the pix-elated 8 bit version we are all accustomed to would ALWAYS be the superior version no matter what?
But then again on the other hand, I’m reminded why we all do this. Why are we at GameMana spending hours filming and editing videos that get only a few dozen views? Why do we go through the trouble to tell people about a video game from the past that we happen to be very fond of, example Captain Quazar for the 3DO.. an amazing coop experience. The reason is because we love these old retro games, and in many cases the gameplay experience given to us so many years ago now, is still unmatched. So I say if they want to redo a great game from the past, to show the kids of today that it can be done, and remind them that games came before Call of Duty and Battlefield… then I believe they have my blessing.
Let us know?
