9 Franchises We Want to See in HD

The PixlBit staff loves HD and wants to see some of their favorite franchises get the treatment.

HD collections seem to be all the rage these days.  The craze began with Sony’s release of the God of War collection – collecting the first two games in the series – on the PS3.  This was promptly followed up by the HD Sly Cooper Collection, also on the PS3.

With all of the success that Sony was having it was only a matter of time before other companies started collecting classics together and releasing them with a fresh coat of HD paint, the first being Ubisoft’s Prince of Persia series.  After that it’s been a veritable title wave of remasters and collections spanning from The Tomb Raider Trilogy to the Ico and Shadow of the Colossus collection.

Yesterday saw the release of the much anticipated Metal Gear Solid HD collection – a title that begins the next wave of major HD remasters including collections of Silent Hill, Zone of the Enders and the recently announced Devil May Cry series.

HD collections allow old fans to revisit old memories and for new fans to see what all the fuss was really about.  Love them or hate them, they aren’t going anywhere for a while, so we here at PixlBit have embraced the concept and have come up with a little wish list of nine franchises we want to see get the HD treatment.

Share your thoughts on HD collections and what games or franchises you would like to see remastered in the comments section below and enjoy!

This came out nearly two years ago it's nice to see at least one of these games are getting the HD treatment!

"Keep"ing the Identity of Dragon Age Intact

The Dragon Age series has something of an identity crisis, due in large part to its disjointed development history. Even though Dragon Age: Origins came out a couple of years after the first Mass Effect, it was actually announced way back in 2004 as a PC exclusive. The roots of Origins could be found in BioWare’s classic Baldur’s Gate series, and the design sensibilities of the game were far removed from the company’s more recent action/RPGs like Jade Empire and Mass Effect. Dragon Age 2 was clearly very influenced by the success of Mass Effect 2, and the input of now BioWare parent company EA was easy to see. While Dragon Age 2 alienated some fans of Origins it also created a new set of people invested in the world of Thedas. Now we have a third entry in the series that has the difficult task of keeping old players invested while trying once again to do a “soft reboot” of the franchise. How does BioWare hope to craft a new adventure but still make players feel like they made their mark on the world? Enter the Dragon Age Keep.
