What games that sounded great were cancelled?
Rainbow Six Patriots
I just loved the idea of taking on domestic terrorists instead of Generic Arab/Russian Group, especially because it was announced around the time the Occupy movement was going strong and most average Americans could sympathize with wanting to murder everyone on Wall Street.
Also, "This Is Vegas". lol jk
Considering I DKR64 is my favorite kart racer and one of my favorite games this could probably be awesome. But you all know what happened with Rare.
Concept art exists and can be found on the lead designer's portfolio website thing. A 3D remake of Band Land from the first game was planned, and the abilities from Rayman 3 were to be brought back and expanded on. Shit was cancelled for the first Rabbids games, and that's why it took fucking YEARS to get another good Rayman platformer, and why we still haven't gotten a good 3D Rayman since 3. Goddamn Rabbids, man. At least the concept of murdering them in every game is really meta, since they deserve it for fucking up such a good franchise.
Same article I googled out.
So they were gargantuan fucking faggots, and tried to do the pioneer of MMO dirty, someone they should fucking thank for their entire prosperity to begin with.
Good, get fucked NCSoft.
I never noticed that, anon.
>Pepe the frog created in 2005
>Concept art for Bandland also created in 2005
I want to believe
Dont forget about killing off a fanmade Exteel successor because 'we're already working on a sequel, be patient :^)' but theyve not said a fucking peep about Exteel
Fuck those faggots
Baldurs Gate: Dark Alliance 3
CNC Generals 2
Bruce Campbell was going to star in a '90s action game by 7th Level called Cold Blooded.
It looked awesome as do all 7th Level games.

>Looks like a Heavy Metal Magazine movie attempt
Fucking A, why is my life so devoid of the pleasures I enjoy.
Posting some canned Project Aces games (Devs of ace combat). Only have detailed info on this one, would welcome translation of the following two images
According to a Famitsu number from 2007, the story of the game would have been set in 2025, centered on a regime ruling the Kingdom of Sapin. The protagonist is a blonde man dressed in a Bionics Armed Suit, who would have joined a resistance movement in an uprising in Gran Rugido against the ruling government. A supporting character would have been a female rebel named Anna, who would regularly accompany him in combat.
Gameplay was centered on a melee system in which the player could interact with various objects in the environment, a concept also applied in Second Season 01 and Chain Limit. The main enemies, the regime forces, would fight with a variety of weapons, including batons and firearms, which could be taken from their hands for later use. Occasionally, the protagonist would encounter mini-bosses through the story. One particular fight involved a commando named Herzog, who would fight with a combat knife and an MP7 machine pistol.
Ghost looked great the first time they showed, then they showed it a second time and it was a almost completely different game by a completely different developer. Third time they showed it it looked like garbage. Then it was suddenly cancelled and nobody gave a shit.
It had one good piece of concept art/cg art and that's all.
As much as I hate Ncsoft, that faggarriott didn't deserve a dollar.
>Make a game with shitty content because "muh lord british".
>Seriously the game had fucking zero content, just search for some symbols and go to the same copy pasted base over and over again.
>As soon as the game is "finished", if you call that fucking trainwreck finished, the fucker goes to space.
>Like FUCK YOU GUYS I'M GOING TO THE MOON.
>Spends a fortune only to pretend he was special going to space.
>Comes back and discovers that his shitty game is shitty.
>FUCK YOU IT'S ALL NCSOFT FAULT IS NOT MY FAULT GIEV MORE MONI.
To be honest I don't care, faggots fighting with faggots, but you can't defend any side.
Crash Bandicoot 2010
Bonk: Brink of Extinction
Pirates of the Caribbean Armada of the Damned
Star Wars 1313
Beyond Good & Evil 2
Sex'n'Drugs'n'Rock'n'Roll. It was developed by the same people who made Sensible Soccer. It was going to be a point and click adventure game about this Judas Priest esque rockband and it was going to have all kinds of crazy shit going on, you could make decisions and some of the decisions would affect wayyyy later in the game ie. you have sex in early part of the game -> you die due AIDS after few hours etc.
The game went through development/publisher hell and even had a full CD of original soundtrack and music videos. The devs stopped trying to publish it because the game of adventure games was over and punk/rock music didn't have that kind of cultural impact anymore.
>tfw somewhere out there is a complete and playable version of this game
nah, they not only changed the artstyle but the gameplay too
THere was an interview with ex-insomniac dev, he said it had no cover system, was way more fast-paced and guns were on the level of R&C ridiculousness
Gotham by Gaslight
Steambot Chronicles 2
He sure has shit taste in housing too. With all that money you think he could of made something better.
Ugh it hurts. There was an awesome mod for Redemption though that allowed you to play as a werewolf, and even had all 5 or so phases of transformation, though it was pretty much just human, bigger human, werewolf, bigger wolf, wolf.
See, the architecture isn't bad, but the neoclassical statue in the garden, shit landscaping and fucking GARGOYLES really ruin it. It's like he wanted a castle but couldn't afford one
i'm actually glad it didn't get released. shit looked pretty terrible completely abandoning carts for just animals. riding bees would've gotten annoying extremely quick. i'm almost completely convinced there was no actual work done on the game and that it was just a quick CG trailer slapped together to get reactions for the gamecubes graphics.
How about the original RE5? Not sure how many people are aware of this, but RE5 went through its own developmental llimbo (not as long as RE4, but still). The original screens, concepts, and gameplay showed a much more survival-horrory game that focused on things like light and shadow, heat exhaustion and delirium, etc
Pretty sure the original RE5 was scrapped somewhere in development
I was actually looking forward to the Dirty Harry game.
Chaos Chronicles was a p neat looking RPG that seemed really close to release a couple years back but got shot down before the final stretch after the devs and publisher (bitComposer) got into a dispute. The devs said bC stopped paying them and wanted to publish the game early, they wanted to continue production and pay for it themselves and receive a share of profits, but that didn't fly. They also accused bC of not paying them on completion of milestones and of sandbagging attempted meetings to find a solution. bC said this was all bullshit and they were perfectly reasonable and fair.
Anyways, we'll never know who was really at fault but if you want a longer read have a look at http://www.rpgcodex.net/content.php?id=9094
>The perfect game about a global counter-terrorism unit would be defending muh freedom in the US
Seriously, why does everybody forget that RAINBOW isn't some branch of the US government? It's meant to be doing shit all over the globe.
Escape from New York with Snake Plissken
Neat, I was thinking it was kind of reminiscent of Ace Combat and I wasn't entirely sure why. Looks like it could've been interesting. I've always loved exploring established settings from a different angle.
Remember when everyone was sad this was cancelled but then that leaked version came out and it was such a piece of shit no one cares or remembers it?
This never got any further than this concept art used to pitch the idea to EA, who didn't give it the time of day.
looks rad as fuck but i thought that the movies were supposed to be satire on the action movie genre since snake got his ass kicked by everyone he met and this game kinda misses that point
i remember, anon
i liked it
I remember back in 2005/6, Sony had released screenshots of a Highlander game some third party was working on.
I think the plot was gonna be you playing as one of MacLeod's first kills, going aginast dozens of other immortals all throughout different time periods, and the final fight was gonna be against MacLeod himself. I guess it got cancelled due to the whole immortal thing probably causing issues with how battles would work.
That makes it even funnier.
The game just makes you a total badass.
Looks so fluid and fun as fuck.
