    This is incredible. Loved both LBAs. Absolute epics with great atmosphere and weirdness that was typical of mid 90s PC games.

    I hope it is not "adapted for modern standards", as it would completely ruin the game.

    They surely will do a complete gameplay overhaul. The old games were nonsense, can't see how they could be considered acceptable nowadays

    But it would be great to see some creativity and imagination make a comeback. The colourful part of the nonsense

    Hopefully they'll stick with the purely isometric look of the first game, the early-3D look of LBA2's exteriors look like trash now when weighed against the beautiful interiors (LBA2 exterior camera was garbage too).

    Every time you see washed-up fogies trying to "reboot" a well-liked series from 20+ years ago, you know it's going to be so so bad.

    I am an absolute quivering little bitch for this series. Defined my childhood.
    So yeah, kind of hesitatingly excited about this!

    I looked up his credits since then, doesn't inspire confidence that I hadn't heard of any of them.

    Didn't know he was on Alone In The Dark though

    I remember getting the first one and the CD version of System Shock on the same day.

    LBA1/2 were the only games outside his usual prestigious adventure games my dad took interest in as well.

    They better not fuck that up, it would be like pissing on his grave. :argh:

    On the other hand, he's french. By proud tradition he will look at how 'muricans/brits/germans do it, than do the complete opposite.
    Since nobody does those games anymore, it could actually just stay the same, but better looking.

    Or it becomes a voice operated MOBA game in a South Park graphic style.

    It's a reboot. If it wasn't adapted for "modern standards", they wouldn't bother in first place and would release the third game instead.

    By "modern standards", I meant to "wokify" the game, by adding stuff that is clearly made by rote such as stronk dark-skinned women with afros (TM), useless males, all white people being evil or idiots, attacking Trump, ugly women, promoting "liberal values" (or even communism outright), etc.

    If they say "modern audience", you can drop the game at once.

    Sometimes they use "modern standards" instead, as normies are starting to catch on.

    Good, it was not Unity. They are making good choices so far.

    They all sound bad tbh and by removing the number from LBA2, it's just adding additional confusion. Should unify it as LBA/LBA2 now, among the niche/cult following the series has on the web, I've barely seen anyone online refer to it as Twinsen, a tiny fraction used Relentless but LBA seemed to be the prevailing winner.
