Dinofly What features would you most like to see in the LBA remake?

Hey guys, sorry if this has been asked before, but what would you most like to see in the LBA remake by way of new features?

For me, it'd have to be some amazing new graphics (of course) though sticking to the style, and perhaps a revamping of the control system. I love the behaviour modes and would be great to keep them in it, but I'm thinking more about movement and fighting...I'm dreadful at aiming so would be nice (for me anyway) to have the option of aided targeting with the magic ball.

I'd also like it to be bigger (in size), to reflect a modern standard, but I don't necessarily want something so massive I get lost/bored.

So, what are your thoughts? What would you like to see, or what would disappoint you if they included it?

For me Beyond Good & Evil is a good template to work from. That style of graphics + its fairly open and seamless world.

Id also like more control over the magic ball. Rather then a few set arcs based on mode, I think you should hold down a key and release - the power of the throw is based on how long its held down.

Yeah, I agree about Beyond Good & Evil...I guess that's the closest modern(ish) game in terms of feel to LBA.

One thing I really like about LBA 1 and 2 is that you don't have to fight every single enemy (though this is more true of LBA 2) and can instead evade them. They should definitely keep that in there.

Surely more control over the ball would be better
You could still press to give a quick throw, just by holding it longer it would go further.
I do think its a little silly the character needs to go back/forwards to aim

It would be nice if the actions could be a little quicker...I can't count the number of times I've been unable to attack because the enemy is quicker than me!

Like I said somewhere, the game is about positioning yourself from where you can knock-out the others, not really about fighting itself.

If they were just remaking the first one, I'd love for them to revamp the saving system to match how LBA2 did it. That was my main issue with that one, going from playing 2 to 1.
Though I don't think I've ever had much of a problem with the magic ball? Maybe if you could throw it faster in another mode, I don't think that was a thing

For the remake, I just hope the iso backgrounds will be in high-res and more detailed. For LBA3, I have other hopes (full 3D environment). And an LBA2-like saving system would be nice too, as others have said.

Controllable vehicles would help to achieve that I think.

A 2 minutes and 43 seconds cutscene of Zoe dancing at the end of the game. Bonus points for entire cast dancing behind her crazily a la Bollywood.

Odd people often asked for me for help with that one and he bothered me as a kid too.

he jiggles to the side, which makes it harder to hit for some people. After playing the game with no avoidable damage dealt I have learn to maneuver very well. LBA2 is much harder I find with out the protection spell than lba for such an outing.

You only need to stay on the stairs, so the ball won't fly above him.

Hit him twice and you will need to move your angle

Still easier than being on the same level as him.
