Canceled Volume 4: A Thanksgiving Maximum Letdown Special


This Thanksgiving, we show thanks for the many things that we have. We as gamers are also particularly thankful for the many games that have been released or are on their way, considering that there are so many that don’t make it off the drawing board. On the flip-side, we should also be thankful for all the crappy video games that have been left on the cutting room floor that gamers and critics never had to endure. Without any further ado, lets take a look at 10 of these cancellations, some of which are especially heartbreaking.

Eternal Darkness Successor Coming to Wii U and PC (Hopefully)

Eternal Darkness was a Gamecube classic, and a rare M-rated exclusive for a Nintendo system. It’s centuries-spanning storyline, spellcraft system, and sanity effects helped make it one of the best entries in the survival-horror genre. Ever since then, fans have been clamoring for a new entry in the series, and it looks like their prayers have been answered. IGN has just revealed the first details on Shadow of the Eternals, a spiritual successor being developed for Wii U and PC, and it’s developer, Precursor Games is seeking $1.5 million for development via crowdsourcing. Precursor is composed of developers who have worked on the 2002 classic, including Silicon Knights founder Denis Dyack. The game’s plot will be told via 12 episodes, and will span over 2,500 years of history. The crowdfunding campaign will begin on Monday May 6th. So how about it? Are you excited for what is essentially Eternal Darkness 2? I certainly am, although I’m a bit apprehensive after the performance of Silicon Knight’s last 2 titles, X-Men: Destiny and Too Human.

Famicom Dojo Podcast: Development Hell

There’s something to be said for a game missing its release to make it more awesome, but after a while there’s the law of diminishing returns. Then there’s also the trap of trying to make everything SO MUCH MORE awesome than anything else out there, you keep changing things — even things that have or should be long since settled — that you enter the inferno known as “development hell” where ideas both good and bad go to eternally torment fans and developers alike. Sean and Vinnk discuss Duke Nukem, the fate of Silicon Knights and their dedication to Too Human that took them under, and how Rare going to Microsoft Studios changed the company forever.
