Canceled Renegade Kid game Son of the Dragon sounds neat

Renegade Kid, the maker of Dementium: The Ward, was at one point designing a Wii title for Gamecock called Son of the Dragon. It had you playing as Dracula himself, and sounds genuinely interesting. 1UP caught up with the studio to ask why it was canceled and what it was all about.

"The game was canceled because of the development cost versus the less than stellar performance of original mature-themed titles on the Wii," says co-founder Jools Watsham. "If you release an original mature-themed game on the Wii, even if it's awesome, you're going to have a hard time making your money back."

The setup itself is cool too: Humans "sacrificed six of their own kind to entrap each of [Dracula's] powers inside a human vessel. Each power was locked inside a young innocent woman, who experienced life in a catatonic state. The young women were separated and hidden in different locations across the land. Each was protected by a formidable guardian."

I can only speak for myself here, but that's definitely something I would play. Perhaps Renegade Kid can eventually get Son of the Dragon on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, or PC.

I dig the feature in Until Dawn where, if you have the Playstation camera, it will record you briefly during jump scares for you to watch later. It's a really neat use of an underused peripheral. Too bad I'm dead inside and never react to them.

Not saying this is the case, but Kojima has gone on record as being a huge Mad Max: Fury Road fan. Konami decided to release MGSV on the same day as Mad Max TVG. They're trying piss on Kojima's lawn, man.

OH WOW. Talk about a complete about face. After slogging through the horrid beginning and slow ass swap sequence this game picked up exponentially. So far, I'm enjoying the hell out of it now. All if forgiven. Thank you based Kojima.

also Fallout Shelter just made me utter this: "I have to get these pregnancies done.." life is trivial in this game!

Let it be known that Metal Gear 2 for MXS has aged horribly and is no fun to play. In the midst of a MGS marathon, looks like I'm skipping ahead to MGS.

Neighbors ended up calling the cops. I hid under a cardboard box. Police officers were perplexed but went back to their patrol routes after a minute or so.

I've been thinking of starting up a criticism-minded "game of the month" type podcast. Would anyone be interested in something like that? If you'd wanna be part of it, let me know, I'm generating ideas and looking for contributors
