How do you feel about the HD-2D games Square is putting out? Personally I love them. Octopath was flawed, but 2 seems to be fixing my gripes with it. Triangle Strategy was kino. Live A Live was great as always, and I can't wait for DQ3 HD.


looks like someone farted on a graphic card >:0


I'm not personally against it. However, I would prefer an authentic looking 2D game from the 90s over it. Fully done with really nice pixel art and good looking spirites.


To me it looks like if PSX era JRPGs got a modern remaster.


Always looks awful, doom mods do the same. Just shitting out bloom and after effects on top of sprites, what a disaster.

at first i liked it, years ago, probably because i never saw anything like it, but now i think it looks bad. they could have just used low poly character models or something

I like sprite games, I don't like effects like bloom on 2d though, still better than the 3d games with 2d perspective companies like capcom or nintendo produce.
I would like people to cut out the pixel art shit though, old games look they way they do because of technical limitations, not because artists thought it would look cool. We could have beautiful hand drawn games and devs don't give a fuck, it's probably more expensive than doing what they do I guess.


They would look better if they stopped putting in all those dumb effects and filters that add nothing to the 2D graphics that would look awesome without them. There's nothing HD on putting filters upon filters above the visuals. And the forced "3D" just makes it worse. If I wanted to play a 3D game I would, I like 2D game and forcing these 3D effects in a 2D game detracts even more from the experience.


Too much bloom, but the sprite work is exquisite. The soundtrack is excellent. However the biggest flaw is the story is typical Japanese abuse of every known trope and pandering to the audience.

I do agree the effects are a bit much, but at least they're pretty easy to disable. Though the option to disable them should be built into the settings.


Looks like Suikoden 1 and 2 are getting a similar treatment, which is more surprising considering it's Konami.
