If you like slightly strange, technically shonky FMV (full...motion...VIDEO!) games, the Switch has brought us Night Trap - 25th Anniversary Edition from the '90s to scratch that itch.
Games like this typically have enhanced footage and user interfaces nowadays, of course, and are still as
bad 'interesting' as they were when CD add-ons were technological marvels. Yes, some of us are middle-aged and remember wanting a SEGA CD more than oxygen to breathe.
Corpse Killer - 25th Anniversary Edition is another one that's been expected for a while, especially when you consider that publisher Limited Run Games took pre-orders on the physical edition in late 2020, but it's just now finally getting its release. Its eShop listing has a 27th July release and a price of $14.99USD.
This one had some recognisable actors back in the day, and clearly had a bit of a budget - not to mention the actors looked like they had fun while filming. The anniversary edition also has various extra goodies that should make enthusiasts of the original happy.
So, are you planning to pick this up?
wow, looks like fun! Got some operation wolf vibes but with video.Should be fun for like 15 minutes
Nah, I'd rather play a CDi Zelda game.
Is this the AVGN effect?
I can't see why else Plumbers Don't Wear Ties would get re-publication in any form.
I know I’m mad, but I’ve got it pre-ordered via LR. Probably won’t play it much, but I’ve got to have this piece of sh*t on my shelf)))
@SmaggTheSmug surely. They’re also releasing Plumbers Don’t Wear Ties on Switch, so… yeah.
"Yes, some of us are middle-aged and remember wanting a SEGA CD more than oxygen to breathe."
That and the Atari Jaguar are the two biggest things I'm glad Mom said no to in my life. And letting me die my hair platinum like Sisqo.
Awful awful game in every conceivable way.
Sure, why not, all good games from the 90s have already been given second chance, now let's re-release not so good ones. Obviously, I'm being sarcastic, and since it's so obvious, I'm going to omit this sentence from the official transcript of this meeting.
It was terrible 25 years ago so can't see it improving .
They really should be paying us too play it
I've got this preordered from LRG. Still hoping for a Ground Zero Texas Switch release from them too!!
It looks utterly terrible, and I will definitely be buying it.
I understand the appeal of watching bad movies and laughing at them, and this seems like it might be a comparable experience. Not sure if I'm willing to pay 15 bucks for said experience however.
I'll get it. Had OK fun with it on Sega CD back in the day.
@SmaggTheSmug Hopefully he'll make a Part with this "re-release".
Meh while the movie scenes are hilarious the game scenes are just terrible. I'll wait for the House of the Dead for my zombie shooting craze.
Hey speaking of… where the heck is that house of the dead reboot thingy?
@SmaggTheSmug not gonna love, when I saw that episode I thought "I wanna play this game on my Switch!"
What's up with this trend of re-releasing bad games from years ago? Did anyone really ask for this and Plumbers Don't Wear Ties?
Next thing you're gonna tell me is that they'll re-release The Town With No Name.
and right after AVGN mentioned it!
Superman 64 and E.T too be released soon as a double pack!
Really wish they would bring Texas Ground Zero over…..it’s possibly the best Digital Pictures release ever!
That looks amazing! Granted actually playing it is probably painful to the extreme, but the FMV is such a cheesefest that it's surely worthwhile just to have the experience.
The actors in this were probably praying it would never resurface. Now they are forced to relive their shame all over again.
@Lord I agree!! I preordered it with LR for PS4 and just bought the digital copy of GZT!! Need it on Switch now!
No two FMV games made more of an impact on me then Night Trap and Ground Zero Texas on Sega CD! They both blew my mind! Nice to have them both on current gen.
Also Preordered Corpse Killer on Switch from LR lol 😂
what about the controls?
can i use my joycons as "lightguns" or do i have to stick with crappy joypad controls?
@joey302 I stumbled on to Texas ground zero after discovering that it was written by Ed Neumeier who at the time was my favourite movie writer……Robocop, Starship Troopers
@Lord whoa!! I just learned something today! That’s really amazing! And I didn’t know that! Both Robocop and ESPECIALLY Starship Troopers are some of my all time favorite flicks!! I think Starship Troopers is amazing I must’ve watched it 100x over the years!! Thanks for the tidbit!
This looks amazing! In a terrible sort of way.
