Canceled Vol 6: A Maximum Letdown Special

Puhleeze.  Who wants a Hideo Kojima produced Silent Hill game written by Guillermo Del Toro and starring Norman Reedus anyway?

Puhleeze. Who wants a Hideo Kojima produced Silent Hill game written by Guillermo Del Toro and starring Norman Reedus anyway?

A few weeks ago, a potential classic, Silent Hills, was cancelled, and all trace of it was removed from the Playstation Network Store. What would have been a potential game changer for both the franchise and the survival horror genre in general is yet another case of what could have been. Although no definite reason was given for it, if you’ve kept up with the drama over the past few weeks, it’s evident that business politics, internal conflict, and the pending departure of Hideo Kojima all played into the cancellation. Sadly, Silent Hills isn’t the first high profile cancellation, nor will it be the last. Gaming’s history is rife with games that could have been classics being canceled due to a variety of reasons. I’ve done 5 previous installments on this subject alone.

However, the creative suite features will also make a return, and the Universe Mode had been upgraded as well. Check out the trailer up above and see more details after the jump.

THQ secures video game license for Voltron

Variety brings us news that THQ has acquired the rights to Voltron for video games. The first game will launch around the same time as the new animated show Voltron Force on NickToons in the Fall of this year. The first entry in the video game series will follow the adventures of the original show from the 80’s Voltron: Defender of the Universe. Mattel will also be launching a brand new toy line based on the new series expected around the same time. I would not be surprised if there was a sub-line dedicated to the original line much like every other 80’s cartoon revival going strong today.

It should be noted that THQ recently also reached an agreement with Mattel itself, to create games based on its own in-house properties including Barbie and Masters of the Universe.

If we had our pick of lions, I’d probably pick to be the Yellow lion to take on Robeasts prior to ganging up and forming Voltron. How about you? Let us know in the comments!

Mattel Grants Video Game License To THQ

Mattel announced today a partnership with video game publisher THQ to turn more of their properties into video games. Mattel’s “Pictionary” game is already available from THQ ahead of this deal.

Obviously, this will mean some more Barbie Horse Adventures, but Mattel’s camp does hold a license that should excite any grown collector or core gamer: Masters Of The Universe.

Do us a big favor THQ, get the guys from Volition and put them on MOTU, using the desgins from the latest Classics toyline. The only way to make Saints Row better is to set it in Eternia and add the ability to carjack Mer-Man.
