Why not stick with Bluepoint games? They did a great job on the MGSHD collection.

Given their tech savy with making The Conduit's graphics engine on the Wii, I'd say this is a good choice.

My thoughts exactly because all the other HD collections (GOW, ICO/SOTC) they worked on were great.

Despite this not being done by Bluepoint games, is this something to be worried about? I know their actual game developing track record isn't the greatest, but maybe they can handle an HD porting job well?

They're a technically competent studio to be sure, no worries there. If they were making the game there might be cause for concern, but it's a port, and they're great with tech.

Kind of a surprise, but High Voltage is at least capable of being technically proficient, so I'm not too worried that we're going to see a repeat of what happened with SH HD Collection. Not to mention, KojiPro is still overseeing the game; they're not going to let them fuck it up, especially since the future of the series is at stake with this release.

Wasn't DMC HD Collection done by the same guys who did all of those Godzilla games last gen?

As far as my knowledge goes, they're really good with tech. The art I've seen in their games is pretty bad though.

This moved from a definitive purchase to a let's wait and see in my list, I mean, I know High Voltage is competent and all but I'd rather read some feedback first just to make sure.

I was already wary of this collection after the Silent Hill debacle. Hearing the port is being handled by the Conduit guys does not instill confidence.

If Bluepoint had done the port, I'd be all in.

However, I would love to be wrong about this.

To be honest, I don't really care about this series at all. ZoE2 is overhyped and ZoE1 just sucks period.

Armature. They are currently looking for somebody with the "ability to bake down assets onto low poly geometry in order to bring PS3/XBOX360 titles to handheld systems". Believe.

Yeah, someone posted about this when The Grinder was last brought up, and then I asked about it in the ZoE HD opening thread. It was surprising, and probably one of the potential reasons we haven't heard of the Vita version.

Armature waiting on High Voltage to finish, maybe? I dunno; transfarring materials for the PS3 version has been since removed, so who knows what's going on.

Wait, maybe I'm not quite up to speed, but what does it mean, "never before released in the US" version of ZOE2?

Did the Japanese/Euro version of original have extra content?

I honestly would look it up, but I'm trying to go on a blackout since I've never played them.
