Including all the FMV sequences they have? Their intention was to have ALL the cutscenes blend seamlessly into the game, and avoid that FMV-to-real time disconnect that most games have.

A recolor wouldn't have been that difficult.

Looking up spoilers to games before they even release...

Someday you'll learn that not everyone cares whether they know what happens in a work.  As if knowing something and experiencing it yourself are the same thing.  And as if everyone didn't know that Ridley would be returning anyway.

It's not the same thing, but foreknowledge lessens an experience. Looking up info about a game you KNOW you're going to play is a short-sighted lack of self control that harms your future for no good reason. It's your money; knock yourself out, but you're cheapening the value.

I'm sorry you feel that way, but spoilers have never cheapened anything for me.

So there's going to be a Hard Mode.  In Hard, enemies do the same amount of damage... but all the expansions are removed, forcing a low-percent run!

You probably self-spoil so much that you don't even appreciate what's happening.

This is what I was talking about with that music overexposure picture on YL,YL.

That was quite a different matter though. Being able to figure out the artist of a song and quickly access their other work - that's a totally rad use of technology and is an example of getting access to MORE to experience for yourself.

The analog to what Turtlekid1 (and Chef, WeeGee, et al.) does would be to hear about an upcoming song by a group you like, read what several people wrote about the song, read the lyrics, look at the sheet music, THEN actually listening to the song for the first time. That has nothing to do with modern tech ruining experiences and more to do with being an impatient self-destructive lunatic.

"Lunatic"?  I'm not the one who obsessively avoids spoilers like the plague and then calls other people out for not doing the same.

"Self-destructive"?  Again, I'm sorry entertainment value is all about the shock factor for you, but that doesn't hold true for everyone.

You got me on "impatient."

Why are you bringing ME into this? I didn't willingly look anything up!

It's not shock factor, it's entertainment value. You guys are like the people who buy the new Harry Potter book and immediately skip to the back to see if he's dead.

I'm pretty sure if I read the book and he ended up dying, I would consider it a waste of my time (I didn't actually check).  But that's beside the point.  I've said it in this thread alone more than once  - entertainment value for me does not depend on whether I'm surprised by something in a work.
