Saint's Row: Undercover

Want to play that cancelled Saint's Row game? You can!


Well that's just damn nice of them
Jan 28
// Nic Rowen
Less than a week ago I reported that you could check out a few clips of Volition's cancelled Saint's Row: Undercover, a PSP game that never was. I thought it was cool that Volition even let it out the door considering how man...

Something something sleeping dogs lie
Dec 24
// Joe Parlock
When it was announced there was to be a successor to United Front Games’ Hong Kong open world crime game Sleeping Dogs, Triad Wars probably wasn’t what most people had in mind. Instead of the involving story ...

LucasFilm president: 'We're spending a lot of time looking at' Star Wars 1313


The game isn't as dead as we thought?
Dec 10
// Joe Parlock
Remember Star Wars 1313? Instead of being all about the Force and lightsabers, 1313 was going to be a grittier look at the Star Wars universe from the perspective of someone who was neither Jedi nor Sith: everybody’s fa...

Norman Reedus says Silent Hills still 'needs to happen'


'HOLY BALLS'
Nov 17
// Vikki Blake
If you're still salty over the cancellation of Silent Hills, you are not alone. Norman Reedus - who's likeness was used in the (terrifying) Silent Hills interactive teaser P.T. -- is still "super bummed" about the whole thing, but recently told IGN he "[has] faith" that he, producer Hideo Kojima and horror legend Guillermo del Toro "can do something else".

Way back in 2001, gone-but-not-forgotten developer Troika released Arcanum: Of Steamworks of Magick Obscura. It was an utterly fantastic (if buggy) RPG set in a vast, strange steampunk fantasy world where the long-established...

There's Star Wars: Battlefront III. There's Star Wars 1313. There's even that Darth Maul game. But no one mourns Star Wars: First Assault. According to the YouTube description, "This was a tech beta ran on Xbox Live a while ...

Hellraid totally isn't cancelled


Totally 100% definitely happening
Jun 02
// Joe Parlock
When a game is announced to be “on hold” or “on hiatus,” we usually just take that to mean it has been cancelled. Prey 2 was put “on hold,” and that still breaks my small, withered heart. I...

Another in a long line of KS failures
May 29

Here’s a fun game dev fact for you: making an MMO is a long, hard, and expensive task that will generally end in failure and misery for everyone involved. If huge companies like BioWare can screw it up, it’s proba...

Everyone who yearns for more Half-Life content might take solace (or find frustration) in the fact that more has been created. However, it's also been scrapped. And, at least some of it had the intent of introducing a ne...
