Yeah wait a minute, holy shit. I had no idea he died, goddamn. I'm not even joking, that really bums me out ;_;

Platinum is still around and can make more games, but we'll never hear a true Blackout song again.

Wow, I certainly didn't expect Scalebound to get cancelled.

Let's hope nothing happens to Nier: Automata.

Nier is most likely safe, since it's PS4 exclusive. From what I've heard and read, it's mostly Microsoft's fault that it got cancelled. Developers really gotta stop partnering with them, seeing as how it rarely ever works out in anyone's favor.

Hideki Kamiya always looked kind of miserable whenever he presented the game, and I got the sense he didn't want to work with Microsoft.

The worst part is that Microsoft owns the rights to the game, so it's not like Kamiya can just take it over to Sony or Nintendo and finish it with them; it's just dead forever now.

I dunno, it sounds to me that the issue came from both sides. That maybe Platinum couldn't deliver on their vision because it was just too big? Meanwhile Microsoft withheld payment because of their missed deadlines. That sounds like something any publisher would do in that situation, not just Microsoft.

Just a guess, anyway. I don't see much point in putting all of the blame on Microsoft when we barely know anything about why it was canned.

I've already posted my thoughts about Republic Commando, but I think that's a good purchase, despite its length. It's too bad that the PC servers don't appear to work anymore, but if you can get multiplayer to work through the original XBox, go for it.

I booted up Dragon's Lair for the first time.

Hooooooooly shit this game is fast paced, I can't even keep up. It's not set on Hard Mode, either. This might take a while.

I actually picked up Dragon's Lair Trilogy the other day and played it for the first time earlier this evening, funnily enough.

Although it kinda sucks that it's now one of the handful of Wii games that goes for a lot of money online. I got it at a local GameStop for $35 and it was literally the only copy that was in stock in my area.

Not too long after I posted that, I beat the Home version on Easy Mode. Once you get past the repetition and memorization, it's fun (and funny). Many of the scenes are awkwardly spliced together and most of the sound effects and music are unintentionally hilarious. Otherwise, it's not hard to see how it was groundbreaking at the time of release.

I'll definitely try it again on a harder setting to see how I fare.

I know I exaggerate here but, it looks to me like Platinum Games is slowly dying.

First bad license titles, then the Star Fox Zero fiasco and now this.

What is going on at Microsoft lately? First Fable Legends gets cancelled, then Phantom Dust gets canned, then Project Spark gets the plug pulled on it, and now Scalebound is done, too.

Not to mention that studios got closed as well, in this case Press Play and Lionhead. Just when I thought Phil Spencer was going to make a complete U-turn of the trainwreck that Don Mattrick was, it's not exactly what's happening here. Sure, Rare is working on actual games now, but it's still weird how so many potential new IPs and old ones are getting the axe. Probably it has to do with Microsoft investing a lot in Project Scorpio atm, or, like EmmBee said, Platinum didn't reach the goal they were aiming at. Lionhead closed because they probably went bankrupt or something and Press Play, who knows? The studio probably split up. It's not uncommon to see so many games being pulled out from Microsoft's consoles and studios closing, it's a thing as common as it was back 15 years ago, at the first Xbox's heyday.

I saw my friend play a bit of the beta for Fable Legends. It was slow, clunky, and boring, and from what I hear from other people who played it for the two years it was in beta, that describes the entire experience. If Microsoft had stuck with it, they'd probably not have a successful game on their hands. Probably the same deal with Project Spark, which I hear didn't really pull in that many players to warrant keeping it running.

I dunno, Fretless, I think you're just a bit too quick to go all doom-and-gloom about Xbox. Like I said before, we don't even know that many details surrounding why Scalebound was cancelled, so the blame could be placed on literally anybody.
