HIGH Some melee kills are decently animated.
LOW An utter lack of excitement from start to finish.

LOW The insufferably slow Ox-driven escort quest to Gran Soren returns.

You Got Your Multi in My Singleplayer!
HIGH Getting caught in a jam and getting unexpected backup.
LOW Getting caught in a jam and not getting unexpected backup.

The term "Space Marine" has always been something of a misnomer. For all the "space" implied in the name, the vast majority of space marines do their fighting on good old terra firma. And while that same basic contradiction is true for Dust 514, there's no denying that its success, in this case, could connect gamers to the stars in one of the most ambitious ways imaginable.

HIGH Fighting through a snowstorm is quite pretty.
LOW There's a deadly amount of repetition.
WTF The achievements require at least seven or more playthroughs.

Completely new intellectual properties are a rarity these days. New ones starring female lead characters are even rarer. Thanks to Capcom picking up publishing duties, Remember Me from French developer DONTNOD Entertainment will be making its way to the United States on June 4. In addition to satisfying both of those criteria, It also looks like a great action title with some interesting ideas, so Jean-Maxime Moris, co-founder and creative director of DONTNOD Entertainment was gracious enough to answer the questions we had about the dynamics of crafting a female-led title and how the game's "memory" theme applies to gameplay.

When I was growing up, my family didn't have a lot of money. We didn't own a family console until my mom bought a Colecovision from a tag sale in 1987. Before that, my maternal grandmother's Atari VCS was sometimes available in 1979 onward when we visited or even lived there due to money troubles. I did get a VIC-20 for my birthday in 1984 and then a Commodore 64 for my middle school graduation in 1986 from my paternal grandmother, but those weren't so much game consoles as they were hybrid devices. I did own a few games for both systems, but not a significant amount.
