Today’s deal is OKAMI HD / 大神 絶景版!
PLEASE DON’T BLOCK US KAMIYA-SAN
Hello Chrons (tryin it), it’s us, the people who run this big purple website. Now, a lot of games these days, mostly when you’re talking about 4k this and HDR that, are focused around how well they represent “reality”, and the closer they all get to the uncanny valley, the weirder everyone’s teeth look, it’s STILL apparently impossible to animate a convincing kiss, and CG characters that by definition can look like literally anything have started picking up blemishes and scrapes on their skin textures, just to seem that much more believable.
Just THINKING about how much more people care about stuff like that now than they did in the early pre-crash Atari days, it can make your head spin, but you only have to go back 12 years to find Okami, which we KNOW didn’t care about realism because if they did, a game about a dog running around with a paintbrush would be designed COMPLETELY differently, and it would have came out three years ago, and it would help some dude with neon hair get famous.
But that’s not what we’re all about here in Chrontown (testing it out), and by selling Okami to you today for thirteen bucks in glorious HD, what we’re really saying is “this is one of the best games ever made, and if high fidelity graphics are all you care about, you need to rethink your priorities, or else soon gaming PC’s will be even more prohibitively expensive than they already are, and you’ll never even find out what happens when Susano free Orochi.” The choice is yours, my Chrons. Make the tight one.
