I played the demo that's out and didn't find it to be anything amazing. 

 I was interested too... until I played the demo. But it did give me some nostalgic feels with the music so there's that I guess.

I remember being young and seeing advertisements for Medievil in gaming magazines and being really drawn to it. I played some of it at the time and thought it was kind of clunky. I think i just like the look of the character and the visual style of the game. And that's about it haha. I'm a sucker for skeleton characters.

Pretty much the same for me. The original game had a kind of Tim Burton atmosphere, which I was drawn to. I remember playing it for a few hours but kind of lost interest after that.

Like I said around the announcement of this game. I remember a lot of hype for this game in playstation magazines and playstation underground discs. I thought there was like a community character making input with the game (though I can't find anything about it) but when it was revealed it was just, meh.

It reminds me a lot like Blasto, lots of hype and then kind of a turd by the time it came out.

I'm still baffled that this is getting a remake every time I see it pop up. This game was forgotten so quickly when it was released and another attempt at creating some iconic character that failed. I haven't even seen it come up anywhere online in some nostalgia fest throughout the years.

Oh, it has. There are actually many vocal Sony fans who wish they'd tap into their history more with Jak, Medievil, Warhawk, Twisted Metal/Sweet Tooth, Sly, etc. etc. 

 

Personally, I think it's cool that they've remastered stuff like PaRappa and Locoroco and remade games like Shadow of the Colossus (yes, I know that one makes more sense lol) and Medievil. I haven't been hyped for the latter, but whatevs.

I stand corrected!

 

To me Medieval just occupies that simplistic, early 3D Playstation bracket where games were simply cool because well, they were polygons and 3D yet the gameplay was often incredibly boring and unrefined. There's a certain "type" of game like that to me and Medieval exemplifies it, that's why I'm confused that anyone cares I guess but obviously I mean whatever, hope it sells for them and we eventually get to the good shit? 

 

This just reminded me of how fucking fun Twisted Metal 2 multiplayer was.

A remake of that would be cool since TMB ran like butter and TM2 ran like crap. :p But a new 60fps Twisted Metal would be better in general.

 

Twisted Metal was previously the only Sony franchise that was on each console, but it's missed the PS4, and one never came onto the Vita after doing so on the PSP. They usually do grow new franchises each generation (which is awesome!), while a company like Nintendo will continue to go into the Mario/Zelda/Donkey Kong/Kirby/Metroid well but do new things with it (which is why stuff like Mario Galaxy or Breath of the Wild didn't feel like retreads), so I have talked with many fans of Sony First Party, whether they like the new stuff or not, who wish Sony would at least hire developers to do something with their old IPs. God of War looks to be one with longevity, though!

I used to play Twisted Metal 2 with my friend split screen back in the day. Had a blast. But he came over like a decade later and wanted to play it and it was pretty much unplayable because the framerate was like sub 30 :p

I used to play Holland all the time and drive around in circles trying to hit-and-run and survive. I got excited anytime I saw a computer attack another computer because you'd think they'd be killing each other, but they basically had tea together on the other side of the map until I got there. :p

I haven't played this game before. I should play this remake. I still haven't plays the Crash N-sane trilogy and CTR or Spyro remake.
