    It looks like another one of those bland remakes that people seem to completely ignore, like Magnum, Hawaii Five O and Open All Hours.


    Exactly. There’s a kernel of something in there, but its been network TV’d to hell and back.
     

    It’s just depressing how bad it is.

  2. McGregor will probably just have a similar role to the one Terry Funk did in the original.

     

    Just long enough to go “Hey, Terry Funk’s in this…” and possibly make a five minute YouTube supercut of him mostly looking like a hapless goon.

    The lightsaber fight was better than anything in the prequels. Scrappy and raw. The fire stuff was a bit weird though. Why did it suddenly disappear?

     


     

    Spoiler

    The fire being used to torture Kenobi? Vader blows it out using the force, kinda like using dynamite to put out an oil well fire.

     

    I thought it was a neat touch.

    The DSS random drops are so infrequent that it seems to be to be a bug. 

     

    The drop rates for everything in CotM are screwy, not just the DSS Cards. I've been playing for a while now (just past the 3rd boss) and in all that time I've had just two potion drops. Meanwhile I somehow have 13 Wristbands, 5 Magic Gauntlets, and 18 (!) Leather Armors pointlessly clogging up my inventory. It's one of a number of niggles that are really bugging me about the game.

     

    The save points feel just a little too far from boss rooms to be convenient. Enemy placement sometimes feels a bit unfair (jumping up from one screen only to get hit by an enemy projectile you couldn't have anticipated). Sometimes it feels like the rooms have been cut and pasted to pad things out, particularly when you go through three or four identical screens only to reach a gated area you'll need to come back to later or a single MP Boost. And why on earth don't bosses drop any kind of health pick up? Not even a refill?

     

    There was a development video for Bloodstained where Iga was being incredibly pedantic about the movement of the main character feeling "right" to enhance the sense of exploration. I just don't get that CotM. The walk is too slow, double tapping to dash is awkward but essential for some platforming... it just feels off. In some ways it feels more like a Metroid than a Vania, not that that's necessarily a bad thing, but it's not what I'm expecting.

    So the Red Guardian...(Endgame, Widow and Loki spoilers)

    Talked about fighting Captain America...chance we are going to see that happen?   I think Loki has confirmed that Captain America's happy ending happens in the main timeline so he is around at the time - so RG isn't lying (and has no reason to).

     

     


     

    Spoiler

    Based on FatWS I think it’s more likely he fought a Reagan-era cap replacement that probably didn’t work out in the long run.


    Replacement Caps are not without precedent in the main comics continuity. Even if Isaiah Bradley and John Walker are accounted for there’s at least two or three others.
