Geist Force. Dreamcast. Ok yeah, I do have the game packaged professionally but it's unfinished and never was released. It was a more adult take on Starfox. At the time it was a graphics showcase. Clean UI, cool ship designs. physics in a console game in 1999 would be pretty mindblowing. Destructible environments. Sadly it was canceled after a few delays. What little that is playable is pretty good in potential. had it been finished would have been likely good. It was my most anticipated game leading up to the DC launch.

Gothic 4.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Jet Set Radio Wii entered production but never got past concept art.

Project HAMMER Wii original vision.

Castlevania Ressurection Dreamcast

Streets of Rage 4 Dreamcast

Dragon's Crown Dreamcast. Yes the game came out 14 years later but the original art was very different and would have been interesting to see the original vision of the game.

Legend of the Blade Master RPG Dreamcast

RavenbadeRPG from Retro on gamecube. Development was a mess but I would love Retro to revisit the idea.

I kinda wish we got the Project Dream RPG on SNES instead of Banjo on N64.

Sadness for Wii.

And it's almost always from someone defending Microsoft .... hmmm ... funny how that works. 

As far I've seen it, it's funny how that cancellation was more important to non-Xbox gamers than than the actual Xbox community. Like you said yourself, the game might not have sold well, and that is the fault of the platform, and its users. Mind, I would've bought Scalebound, so I'm not defending its cancellation. I'm just surprised that it still gets brought up like it would've been a GotY candidate, or better. Let's be honest, MS's track record with exclusives isn't great, at least not in the Metascore and critic department. But they try (tried?) to cater to its base, which is resulting in less diverse exclusives as they eliminate those that don't live up to expectation, sales-wise.

So, excuse my phrasing from the first post. It's my personal opinion that it would not have sold well.



C&C Generals 2. Fuck EA for not doing anything about it for years.

They cancelled it twice, even. I really miss Westwood, those games were the best.

At least we have OpenRA.



Any Legacy of Kain game after Defiance... I just cant believe they havent tried to make at least one more to test the waters

And Forged Battalion, which takes idea that EA dropped with generals 2.

We got Portal 2 out of it, so it isn't all bad.
