Surfer Girl is back with a cancelled game list

10:49 AM on 10.23.2007 // Dale North

We still don't know who the hell Surfer Girl is, but we know that she manages to drop more and more interesting "insider" information on us as time goes on. This time she lists some canceled games that you'd never know existed "unless you worked on them."

There are quite a few eyebrow raising entries in the list of 18 titles posted on SG's blog "such things that never was." Alone in the Dark: The Abductions (PS2, Computer Artworks/Atari) takes the "what a shame" award, while Army Men: Air Cavalry (PS2/GC/XBOX, Check Six Studios/3DO) takes the "good, I'm glad" one. The canned Joust update is pictured above.

What? The Getaway Online (PS2, Studio London/SCEE) eventually became Home? Is that right? And the very idea of a arena fighting game based off the film A.I. blows my mind, but it's right there at the top of the list.

Gamesetwatch points out that this information could have been pulled from Google searches, but it doesn't matter -- Surfer Girl throws out blog-friendly posts that we like to read and talk about. Plus, we'll eventually find out who she is, and I'm willing to bet we'll be greatly disappointed. Let's just enjoy the mystery for now.

Hit the jump for the full list of cancelled titles.

As I leave to go home to a meal of chili mac and possibly to watch Alien 3, I leave you with this thought: Farts.

Question: What are the Persona Classics dlc sets like for Dancing All Night? Because I'm half interested, but if the characters used for the costumes aren't the best then eh... I know Nanako has a Aegis costume iirc but that's about it.
DeNA boss says that the Nintendo mobile games are coming soon. Hurry up and reveal the damn thing so I can know if I should be excited, interested, or disappointed?

There's a tumor going around the Episode II of Zeldas is getting a remaster. Meanwhile, Link's Awakening 3D would have been appreciated much more. [img][/img]

I was playing MGSV, doing a Mine Clearing Side Op and saw a bear. I pelted it with tranq bullets, few seconds later it ran into a mine and blew up, alerting the enemies in the process. Holy shit I love this game.

The wait for Dragon Quest Heroes is killing me. AR challenges in Arkham Knight do not fill the void! Not even Cat-woman's nice butt can fill the void. These 3 days will be a trial. :(

A client tipped me $50 today at a job site, which lead to me only spending $10 + tax for Dragon Quest Heroes. Slime time baby.

Daily VGM #22 (Witcher 2) - Pam Pa Ram (The Witcher 3) [youtube][/youtube] Instant classic 10/10. It's a travesty it wasn't included in the soundtrack. Maybe CDPR is preparing for a special second disc release? I sure hope
Oh, look at that, the rough draft I choose not to delete of this paper I need to do! I can keep adding to that instead of starting over and getting frustrated and quitting. What a novel concept!

I'm coming to realize my time off from blogging has made the progress I made at being succinct fade away into nothingness, as the world will see in about an hour. I also made Valkyrie Drive's boobs even more boring at Japanator last night! Somehow.
Apparently, Kero Blaster got an update... Neat.
