Custer's Revenge being remade by Rockstar

Will this remake "unmake" Rockstar?Will this remake "unmake" Rockstar?Just heard on the radio that, of all things, Mystique's 1982 game Custer's Revenge is being remade for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC, by none other than Rockstar! Apparently, the company acquired Mystique's IP way back in 2003 and has been sitting on it ever since, and news of their 3D remake has only recently surfaced. The game will obviously arouse great controversy, but it's unclear if even spectacular audiovisuals can make this wretched game playable. For those unaware of the original, the game is "a crude simulation" of one of the most disgusting acts imaginable. It was bad enough even with the highly abstract graphics of the 2600; seeing this game in next gen will be downright horrific.

I, for one, am flabbergasted over this and really wish Rockstar would cool it with the controversy. What next, a remake of Chiller?

Hookers in my Table Tennis Game?

Frankly, when this was first announced, I thought it was a hoax, though a hoax directly from Rockstar. After all, a table tennis game from the creators of "Grand Theft Auto" and "State of Emergency"? Rockstar's Table Tennis for the Xbox 360: Yes, it really does look that good.  Imagine these games in a few years when developers really get a handle on next generation hardware...Rockstar's Table Tennis for the Xbox 360: Yes, it really does look that good. Imagine these games in a few years when developers really get a handle on next generation hardware...Sure enough, it turned out to be true and is actually looking very interesting. Rockstar's basic premise was to make the best possible playing game and put all their effort into great character models and animation. Essentially, take a simple game, make it a pleasure to control, and as beautiful as possible. Sounds good to me and something of a nod to earlier days of development. Hopefully such a high profile developer like Rockstar doing this and - fingers crossed - has a big success with this, will start to inspire other developers and publishers to take a chance. After all, this is the first stand alone table tennis game in ages and the basic design principle is a very positive one.
