I hear you. When @Mike_Cathcart said it this morning I thought he was full of it. Turned out the game was the it I guess?
You’re right though, it’s rare that we get a public cancellation like this and I really appreciate that. I mean, Nintendo has put out some mediocre or oddball things in every year of their existence. Usually there are redeeming qualities even in those products, so they must have seen something in this that really upset them.
I’m definitely curious about what happens to whatever Retro was working on before this, though. The Star Fox game seemed rather solid despite no announcement. Enough people had commented and a logo was spotted and everything. I really wonder if that UbiFail played a role too?
Either that or it’s done… which would be cool too of course.
@geggis, Yeah, Corruption isn’t as good as the first two, but it’s still pretty great. Remember also that was their first real shot at motion controls, which I guess we can likely NOT expect in MP4? I think that played a role in the game’s uneven feel. Halo was HUGE then, too. No surprise that they were trying to incorporate some of that style in there…
