Video/Gallery: Remember Me

The lead character with amnesia is an unfortunately common trope in the videogame world. I've always assumed it's because it lets the player step in on the ground floor and discover the world as the character does. It also explains why a superpowered ninja/spy/soldier/etc. has to be taught their abilities from scratch. But in the case of Capcom's new IP, Remember Me, memories (or lack of) are the centerpiece of the game's story.

In Remember Me, you'll play Nilin, an elite memory hunter with the usual athletic and combat skills who also has the abilities to break into peoples' minds and steal or change their memories. But when Nilin's memory is erased, she has to figure out her own identity and do the usual videogame hero thing of saving the world.

The trailer looks mighty impressive, and although Capcom released some screenshots, they're basically just stills from the trailer. But you could browse them instead of watching the trailer, I suppose. It looks like a weird hybrid of Deus Ex, Psychonauts and Mirror's Edge, but at the same time, it looks like it has serious potential. I'll be keeping an eye on this one up until its currently scheduled release in May of 2013 on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC

And the female lead is a non-white adult woman who wears practical clothing? MADNESS.

Of course the cover is all about her huge bubble ass though. Catwoman and the horrible Hollywood version of Aeon Flux etc. show that a constant focus on T&A and a desire to have the character look strong at the same time don't work. Yes, you can be sexy and strong, but a character can't be a sex object;, just a realdoll with which the creator is more focused on how to show ass at all possible moments as opposed to a multi-dimensional character who happens to be sexy.

You noticed that, too, Mercurywater? It's worth an eyeroll. For anyone that has seen the gameplay videos? She also has an extremely exaggerated sashay-swish in her hips when she moves (and of course the camera pans to her butt in the trailer for several moments). Back-breaking/hip-dislocating sway at that, since the rest of her body from the hips on up do not move much at all.

And the long nails/press-on nails? Why? She's doing all this parkour/building climbing/martial arts fisticuffs. That isn't sensible at all aside from trying to make her 'sexy/pretty.'

Those awful things aside so far, I do like that she's a non-white and WOMAN PROTAGONIST. I'd just prefer her NOT to be sold as a sex object first and powerful/capable/awesome character second. :(
