What's funny about Donkey Kong Country Returns is that when I was playing it, I actually had that old nostalgic feeling of okay: I am going to fuck up, then try again, and then I am going to feel great sense of accomplishment. It is pretty lame that if you fuck up enough times, the game offers you Reggie Fils-Aime to power through the stage for you.

I blame Halo for everything with their whole shield regenerating system, it really seemed to take the whole "trying" thing out of video games.

Well, to be fair about the shield regenerating thing, it makes sense in the context of the world of the game. Futuristic setting and all. Also, once that shield is gone, one hit, you're dead.

The only time it weirds me out is playing something like Call of Duty. You get shot up, dive behind a log, and bingo! You're healed! I'm pretty sure during any war, and the casaulty count bares this out, it doesn't work that way!

Soviet Art Show

I wanted to get into Metal Gear Solid (MGS) and bought MGS 2 brand new when it came out. It sat on my shelf for almost a year before I sold it to a friend. He beat it and I remember being over his place and watching the wacky ending.

Years later I played through the first MGS on an emulator and found it boring and the story somewhat confusing. I know there must be an interesting story there but I just can't get into it.

The other series which I force-feed myself for story is Assassin's Creed (AC). Thankfully, that is being made into a theatrical movie with Michael Fassbender playing the lead. I hope it is interesting as it seems like the series has an interesting direction.

I'm still stuck playing AC Revelations. I skipped Brotherhood, having watched the cutscenes on youtube before starting Revelations. Have you are anyone in the audience ever done this?

In regards to all games looking better in HD, this is usually not true for textured games. Simple-colored polygons may look somewhat sharper with more resolution.

However, textures which are applied to models in games such as clothing, ground, walls, etc are just image files with a set resolution. I'll give you an example so you can picture what I mean:

Imagine you have a texture for a road that is 64 by 64 pixels and used in a PS1 game. Most games on PS1 run at 320 x 240. If that game was up-res'ed to 1920 x 1080, that original image now must fill 27 times more screen area. Those tiny textures which were only meant to fill a few pixels on the screen now fill much more area in the bigger screen and look like garbage.

Techniques like anti-aliasing the textures themselves can improve quality but the best improvement you can get is by re-doing the art in the game. This is why some HD re-releases take more time than others. Heck even animations for models sometimes must be re-done because the newer machine can handle more frames of animation and your characters will look more lively with this update--think supporting 60 frames per second rather than 30 frames. They also have to port the code over if that is even possible. Some games actually have to be re-made from scratch on the new platform.
