The lights are on
Capcom is taking a big risk releasing a new franchise so close to an E3 that will be dominated with next-generation news. The publisher is doing it the right way though, presenting a rich history for players to explore before the game is even in their hands.
The latest trailer is a brief, live-action segment that may confuse those who haven't been following the title's progress (we have two previews to help you get caught up). It's narrated by Antoine Cartier-Wells, creator of the memory manipulating Sensen implant and founder of Memorize. His company is responsible for a global network that includes 99 percent of the population, and his work, which was originally intended to help the world has been perverted.
In Remember Me, a group of "Errorists" seek to break free of the controlling shackles of Memorize, liberating the world from memory control. Protagonist Nilin has the unique ability to "remix" memories, giving her godlike powers over foes.
After watching the new live-action trailer and an earlier in-game one giving a bit of Nilin's backstory, be sure to head over to the official site. There, you can follow Cartier-Wells' path, learn of his tragic life, and understand how the world of the future turned out so very wrong. There's a lot of material in Cartier-Wells' journal, but the fantastic background music and wealth of content are worth the time.
Remember Me is out this week on June 4 for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

I'm actually crazy excited for this game, sadly I feel like not much marketing has been done and Capcom should have pulled the trigger on some television ads as they would have made a big impact imo. Everything about the game has my interest though, tuesday cant come fast enough.
I'm really looking forward to this game, but i don't think many people are aware of it. Hopefully it won't sink.
Looks good, but I will just wait to see a few reviews first, and if I like it I would probably get it pre-owned
this game reminds me of total recall lol
Forgot about this game. From all the gameplay I've seen, it doesn't look like something I would buy full price for.
I didn't really know anything about this game until a few weeks ago and just from the premise it sounds really cool.Can't wait to play this.
This game looks a little interesting, but I think too many people have already been turned off of it to make it a really huge success, if it is a success at all.
I can't wait. Pre-ordered this, and awaiting tomorrow night's release.
I would buy this when it comes out, however with no income its going to be a while..liked the trailers tho
This looks okay, but it's just so corny!
This game is too confusing to follow.
I can't remember the last time I was this excited for a game. It seems like every time I see something new the game looks better. ANd now it's only two days away.
I cant stand live action ads. I want footage of the game not lousy SYFY acting and effects.
So glad that I saw this. I was on the fence about cancelling my pre-order, but now I cannot wait for it again.
Finally went through the entire site, what a blast. That's the coolest introduction and videogame site I've seen to date. Definitely worth the run through.
