Kickstarter has brought new life to dormant game properties and concepts, and I was among those excited to see headlines about Mutant Football League. Until, like many of you, I got to the part about the project being geared toward mobile with other ports (i.e., the ones we actually wanted) arriving at a later date. What a disaster that turned out to be.

To be fair, the game did raise a sizable amount of pledges -- $141,821 -- but that amount fell far below its minimum funding goal of $750,000. The campaign was all over the place and the sticker shock didn't help. Speaking to Joystiq, organizer and Mutant League creator Michael Mendheim said he led with mobile platforms due to feedback received from developers who had prior success with funding their games through Kickstarter but confirmed that "the backlash to [mobile] was just unbelievable. We were sunk that first day."

Mendheim also told the outlet Mutant Football League will return to Kickstarter later this spring with a much lower funding goal and a focus on PC first and foremost. I hope this second attempt better connects with fans and ultimately gives them what they want out of a new Mutant title.

NHL 15 predicts entire hockey season, probably gets it horribly wrong

EA Sports used NHL 15 to simulate and predict the upcoming NHL season which begins next week. The results are most likely terribly wrong because nowhere does it anticipate that the Colorado Avalanche will be crowned Sta...more

Drop a dime with Busta Rhymes in new NBA 2K15 trailer

Turn-around jumpers, one-handed dunks, pull up treys -- this new NBA 2K15 trailer has it all for anyone that cares about defense as much as James Harden does. All that silky smooth rock-handling is even easier to digest...more
