Remember Me has fallen to an astonishing £2.95 on PC without even needing a voucher code!
I recently played through Remember Me and found a lot to enjoy. Dontnod's take on a futuristic Paris is jaw-droppingly gorgeous and is what would happen if the worlds of Mirror's Edge and Blade Runner collided. The combat is meaty and the combo editor provides different power ups to suit your needs. You'll have fun remixing memory sequences too in order to influence people into believing a different series of events occurred. Overall, a very clever game that I feel shouldn't be passed by.
Take a look at my recent feature, Remember Me - A memory worth saving.

Reviewing a game always comes with some degree of time pressure. We can pretend it doesn't, but it does. Even with no official deadline, it’s sometimes hard to just play a game at your own pace. Bit bored? Tough. Stuck on a boss? No time for a breather - and so on.
I didn’t review Remember Me when it originally came out in 2013, but the game has been sat in my PlayStation+ collection for a while now and I finally got around to playing it over the last few weeks. Some days I’d play for twenty minutes, others it would effortlessly pull me in for hours.
So, I thought: just because the promos, reviews and walkthroughs have been and gone, doesn’t mean we should just forget about games. At Dealspwn we specialise in bringing you cheap game deals of titles both old and new. So we’re going to start talking about our experiences with games after distancing ourselves from the pressure of reviews or the hype train that can derail the experience of a new game we’re playing when compared to the one we were promised.Click here to read more...
PlayStation Plus and the Instant Game Collection continue to be pretty much the best things ever, and are showing no signs of slowing down as the PS4 approaches. Far from it, since both Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and Remember Me will be totally free from November onwards. The latter game may be a better concept than a final product, but Platinum's take on the Metal Gear universe is utterly superb.
Vita owners can also get their hands on Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath and Motorstorm RC. Which are both excellent, if you didn't get the memo.

I want to love Remember Me so very much. DONTNOD's imaginative action title has some moments of real wonder. There's a moment early on when you're climbing up the side of a building and Neo-Paris unfolds before your eyes, a gaudy city of cyberpunk metal and neon wrapped around a famous urban landscape that's enormously familiar.
It's the perfect antidote to an industry that constantly settles for the bland blocks of New York, and it's just the start.
Here's the elevator pitch for Remember Me from my perspective: Borrowing from a sci-fi literary legacy laid out by the likes of Philip K. Dick, William Gibson, and Neal Stephenson, DONTNOD have fashioned a game set in futuristic world where memories are commodities to be bought and sold -- a world where you can relive the finest moments of your life (or indeed someone else's) and yet, like all drugs, run the risk of overdosing should you overload your brain. Into this world steps Nilin, an imprisoned amnesiac who finds herself befriended by a seeming stranger who helps her rediscover who she once was: a memory hunter who hunted people down, and hacked their minds for memories as one might a computer.
Sounds great, right? It's such a good premise, it's a wonderful IP, and Neo-Paris is positively screaming out to be explored. But you don't get to, the story dissolves into flat characters, awful soliloquies, and the game's fundamental premises is lost in a sea of clunky combat and poor platform puzzling.Click here to read more...
This week's biggest new release, Remember Me, clocks in at an admirable third place behind the victorious GRID 2 and FIFA 13. It's a strong showing for the new IP, which was originally own as Adrift before being picked up by Capcom. Skyrim is also refusing to surrender thanks to the release of the DLC-loaded Legendary Edition, clocking in at a solid fourth.
Elsewhere, Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon rejoins usual suspects like Far Cry 3, Assassin's Creed 3 and and Tomb Raider. Punters also still seem to be buying Dead Island Riptide, which is odd considering that it's intensely, thunderously mediocre. Xbox 360 owners will be much better off with the cheaper State Of Decay. We expect that The Last Of Us might possibly feature into next week's chart after its UK launch on Friday.
Poor old Fuse, which made its debut last week, has already plummeted off the top 40 into an uncharted (no, not with a capital 'U') position. It's a sad state of affairs for the artist formerly known as Overstrike, which caused controversy for muting its colourful tone in line with focus testing.Click here to read more...
Remember Me's launch trailer gives us a look at the breathtaking city of Neo-Paris, which early reports and reviews have been praising without reservation. Whether the action gameplay holds up, however, is perhaps another matter entirely. Either way, we'll find out whether Remember Me delivers on Friday when it releases in the UK on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.Click here to read more...
Remember Me's creative director has starred in a Capcom-Unity video interview, offering an intriguing insight into protagonist Nilin's struggle to survive. Not just against the dangerous memory-altering corporations that dominate Neo-Paris, but also numerous publishers who refused to entertain the notion of a female lead character. It's also a handy recap just in case you need your memory refreshed (heh).
Remember Me out on June 7th for PS3 and Xbox 360, though Carl hopes that the mechanics have been fine-tuned in our Remember Me hands-on preview.Click here to read more...
A new trailer for Dontnod Entertainment's Remember Me acts as a perfect way to mug up on the premise and setting, introducing us to Neo-Paris and its evil corporations that turn memories into commodities. It's out on June 7th for PS3 and Xbox 360, though Carl feels that the mechanics could use some fine tuning in our Remember Me hands-on preview.Click here to read more...
Capcom have unveiled a new video for Remember Me that sees reative director Jean-Maxime Moris discussing how central protagonist Nilin can manipulate the emories of others to suit her advantage.
The game releases on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 over here on June 7th, hitting the US on June 4th.

At this year’s Gadget Show Live there really wasn’t much in the way of new games on the show floor, especially in the way of upcoming titles, but with the exception of the upcoming Star Trek movie tie-in (which you can read about here) there was only one unreleased game I had yet to get hands-on with… and that was DONTNOD’s sci-fi memory manipulation action title Remember Me. Having managed to intrigue us with its official unveiling last year, it has remained on our radars thanks to the steady flow of trailers (and topical character discussion) since then.
So, we naturally jumped at the chance to get hands on with the game while we were perusing the show floor. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to see any gameplay that had us remixing memories, with the demo instead highlighting the platforming, exploration, and combat mechanics. The level on show saw us controlling main character Nilin as she made her way through the slums of Neo-Paris, an incredibly dirty yet rather vibrant locale that had makeshift market stalls and flying advertisement bots insisting on gaining my attention. Along with a rather downtrodden populous, the city is also host to some faceless enemy creatures that seemed to suck the memories out of people (or at least that’s what I gathered during my time playing.) Upon gaining control, I began my trek across the bowels of the metropolis.

Capcom and DONTNOD Entertainment have released another trailer for Remember Me, showing off more of the deadly adversaries that memory hunter Nilin will face off against using brains, brawn and the ability to overwrite memories.
The anticipated PS3 and Xbox 360 title is out on June 7th, though we hope that the finished article won't contain quite as much offensive wub wub as the video. Carl recently got to grips with Remember Me, and we'll have a detailed preview for your delectation tomorrow.Click here to read more...
DONTNOD's creative director Jean-Maxime Moris has told of the problems his company have faced in trying to develop a game - Remember Me - with a female protagonist, saying that publishers told him outright that "you can't have a female character [protagonist] in games".
Apparently instead of getting the marketing department to do their job, it's far easier to push a sexist agenda down from the top and force people to massively compromise their work.Click here to read more...
Capcom have announced that Remember Me will release on June 7th in Europe, by way of a new trailer that reveals more of memory hunter Nilin's backstory. Dontnod's third-person action game promises to deliver both a strong storyline, scope for exploration and combat with oversight from Street Fighter's Yoshinori Ono, set in the dystopian future of Neo-Paris.
It's slated to launch on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
A new trailer for Remember Me has hit the internet, showing off plenty of gameplay and introducing one of the new bosses: the brawny, brawly Kid Xmas.
Originally known as Adrift before Dontnod shacked up with Capcom, Remember Me will feature a futuristic memory-hacking storyline and fighting mechanics from Street Fighter's Yoshinori Ono. It's expected to release on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 this May.Click here to read more...
Jean-Maxime Moris, the creative director on Capcom's Remember Me, has slammed the prevalent use of the "straight, white, man" as a stereotypical central protagonist.
Speaking in a recent interview, Moris used the statement to highlight the differences that DONTNOD are striving for with Nilin - Remember Me's female, mixed-race, central character.Click here to read more...
Despite Remember Me not even having a firm release date, it would seem Capcom are already planning to turn the game into a series. The new IP was revealed at Gamescom and has impressed us ever since with a series of gameplay videos showing combo editors, brawling and some seriously slick sci-fi locations.
At the end of the day, new IPs are risky ventures and it’s not really surprising that Capcom aren’t planning a one-off title.

Capcom and Dontnod's intriguing sci-fi action title got a new walkthrough video at TGS, taking a closer look at the Combo Lab, a feature that will allow players to customise Nilin's fighting style to suit their own methods of gameplay. There are four combo slots, and four different types of "pressen" to augment your combos: regen, power, cooldown, and chain. There'll apparently be around 50,000 different combinations for the player to tinker with.
The game is out next May for PS3 and Xbox 360.Click here to read more...
