Vous etes si belle, Aveline. Assassin's Creed: Liberation's HD facelift looks pretty impressive. The remastered version of the game that debuted as a Vita exclusive will be out next week for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

I wasn't expecting to say this, but i think i prefer the Vita graphics!(?) Particularly that last pic.. And hell, the first one too. They have an atmosphere to them which seems to depreciate with all the new colour and texture work. Clearness doesn't = better. This is something i see in art too, constantly overlaying and replacing your work until it's "perfect" often wipes out the character along the way. The characters all look much more normal now, wheras before you'd assume (correctly) that they were designed to look weird on purpose - like real people do.

Saying that, for "look at the improvement" type screenshots they probably pick things with the most obvious punchy differences. I still stylistically think from thiese shots the original is *much* stronger. What the hell.

It's a bit like when Notch made the moon & sun round in Minecraft. Yes, its an improvement - but it makes it look worse.
