Review – Zone of the Enders: HD Collection

Review Zone of the Enders HD Collection
Animation studio Sunrise lends some love to see this HD revisit for Zone of the Enders open with a fresh and lengthy montage for the robotic space opera. Stirring early anime memories is a sweet touch here, since Zone of the Enders aimed to create a videogame channeling that spirit when it first released for the PlayStation 2 back in 2001.

The added attention is also a promising touch, considering Konami hasn’t been entirely on the ball when it comes to HD revisits, contributing to an environment that leaves me hesitant to review any of them without the time and means to stress test and analyze the effort frame by frame.

But if the Silent Hill HD Collection left a bad taste in your mouth – and it’s hard to imagine that it didn’t – there’s relief to be had in the revelation that Zone of the Enders hasn’t aged all that badly considering that videogames age approximately ten times faster than most domesticated dogs, which perhaps aided the effort here.

Konami E3 Pre-Show
I’ve returned from Konami’s first Pre-E3 showing with a powerful yearning to sleep after a long day, but I’ll instead endeavor to string together some words for you Sugarfiends regarding the event – that’s just the kind of guy I am after all.

Members of Team Sugar attended the Toronto event, which consisted of video announcements simultaneously screened for audiences in several locations around the globe and online, which Konami cited as an effort to reach fans more directly before the more closed nature of E3 commands the thunder next week.
