There is a certain type of video game fan (I count myself among them by the way), who think that the 8 bit or 16 bit era of gaming was as good as it will ever get. Of course that usually coincides with the age at which they started gaming, and when games were a massive part of their life (generally around 12-14). These fans love nothing more than a nice retro reboot of a classic game, and so the internet collectively gave out a cheer when the remake of Duck Tales was first announced.
The mixture of intriguing play mechanics, exotic worlds and THAT theme tune made the original NES one of the most loved games of the early nineties, and the thought that we could soon play them on our new fangled Xbox 360’s and PS3’s was almost too good to be true. One type of gamer was however seemingly left out of the celebrations – the PC owner.
Well, worry no more computer gamers – Capcom has got your back. You too can be singing that famous tune alongside your console owning friends when the game launches this summer, as it will be heading to Steam and Origin for $14.99. With both this and the Castle of Illusion remake coming so close together, my gaming life is almost complete. In a sense buying the game on PC would make more sense than getting it for console (assuming you have a decent controller), as at least it will still be playable on an upgraded or future PC, long after your current consoles have been consigned to the attic.
