Gamescom 2012: Remember Me game footage

Over in Germany, Europe’s own version of E3 is being held in Cologne where a number of announcements have revealed a slew of new titles. Capcom was up with their reveal of Remember Me by Dontnod Entertainment, a game that takes place in the future where memories can be traded, sold, stolen, and even remixed. According to the backstory, in exchange for the loss of privacy, people have accepted the security that this kind of social society has given them in exchange.

Neo-Paris is the setting and you play as Niln, a “memory hunter” who casually pockets stolen memories as easily as we do loose change. It’s slated for May 2013, but no word yet on what platforms. Still, it looks like it could be another great title for cyberpunk fans.

The trailer below takes you through a typical job for Niln as she’s asked to “remix” someone’s memory. There’s some language, definitely some violence, but it’s slick sci-fi for the eyes. Could be good.

E3 Video: Beyond – Two Souls

Quantic Dream, the makers of Heavy Rain, had also unveiled their next PS3 exclusive at E3 called Beyond: Two Souls starring a young woman named Jodie and asks the question of whether there is something else after death.

It also sports Quantic Dream’s improved engine which brings even more creepy realism to their CG actors. Ellen Paige (X-Men, Juno) is also the main actress, loaning her likeness and voice talents to star in the title. After seeing this the first time, it immediately hit my “must have” list.

This clip is adult stuff meaning that there’s frank language in there along with a little violence, but it’s also as eye catching as anything that you might have seen on the big screen. So heed the warning at the start.
