Steve Clist suggests 5 franchises that could add something to the Xbox game portfolio and that he thinks deserve a second chance
Totally agree with amped and viva pinata, those are both games that were great and hold a place that no other games are even attempting to fill. Don't think with horizon (most of the same devs from PGR) that there needs to be another PGR, mech assault just isn't my kinda thing and halo wars was great, but not too worried about a sequel.
They should just make a "Forza Gotham" game that is technically PGR5. I would like a Blue Dragon 2 and Splosion Man 2 that goes full 3D
Blue dragon 2 would be a day 1 for me. Not even a question, that game was amazing. They pushed it out with no promotion or advertising and then whined that it didn't sell. Super sad to see such a great game just disappear.
1. lost odyssey 2. mechassault 3. halo wars 4. viva pinata 5. kameo 6. project gotham 7. age of empire 8. crimson skies
I want another shadowrun FPS! That game was amazing
MECHASSAULT would lead my list. I would also love if the did something like Mech Commander but used Halo Wars type controls.
Jade empire too! Lots of great games for the original Xbox man
If they brought back PGR, Lost Odyssey, and Blue Dragon I'd happily buy an X1. Until then I'll wait for the games that truly interest me.
PGR was fantastic game http://h11.abload.de/img/pg... i hope someday microsoft will bring it back
I want Viva Pinata and Mech Assault back. Mech Assault should be brought back after the success of Titanfall. Actually they should bring back another FASA studio to work on Mech combat games... Crimson Skies/Mech Assault. Viva Pinata needs a bit of funding one of these days XD. Loved the game, loved the show. The show was a lovely thing for me to bond with my younger brother over.
Would love mech assault. Spent so much time messing around in the multiplayer!
A new Halo Wars would be epic.
I wish lol
"First party like Killzone, infamous, knack, lbp or the order? Titanfall was rated higher then them all so I don't know where youre getting your theories from dude. Gears is the best tps so I would die if they stopped it, halo is the best fps And forza is the best rated racer. Saying thats all Microsoft has is like me saying all sony has is uncharted, gt and gow." Titanfall is third party "exclusive" playable on pc since day 1 and sequel is coming on PS4. Uncharted is best TPS - Uncharted 2 outscored and had more awards than any Gears of War game. Also new Gears of War without Epic Games. We saw how underwhelming E3 demo was. Halo was the best fps and without Bungie it isn't. PS3 had better exclusives last gen - Uncharted 2, LBP and TLOU outscored every X360 exclusive, and this gen so far Bloodborne outscored every Xbox One exclusive.
feelforlove What does that have to do with this? Your comment is like looking at an iceberg in the desert.
Blinxs the time sweeper!!! And brute force!!
Everyone seems to want Battletoads. Not on that list, but MS should do SOMETHING with it, even if it's a downloadable 20 dollar game, or a remake.
Battletoads and Battletoads Arcade are both in the Rare Replay collection... they also have a cameo in Shovel Knight. I played the SNES version when I was a kid... the 3rd stage of that game was so absurdly difficult that it still pisses me off to think about how many times I rented it out thinking 'this time I'll beat it'.
Amped is the only game in the list that was good IMO.
I loved amped 3, still have it for my Xbox 360. But other games on that list were also fantastic
PGR Mech Assault Otogi Breakdown Lost Odyssey
Tenchu Kameo Perfect Dark Timesplitters Marvel Nemesis Rise of the Imperfects
I would be highly upset if a new Tenchu game came out and it was only on Xbox, but I would buy it.
@Bathyj Sure I hear you, I played the original on the ps1 but at this point I don't care, I just want it to be made.
Tenchu was my favorite game on PS1. Would definitely buy an XB1 for that game.:-)
Breakdown Rallisport Brute Force Wreckless Crimson Skies Midtown Madness
Crimson Skies Blood Wake Conker Perfect Dark Voodoo Vince
Crimson Skies definitely. Can't believe that game has been dead for 10 years.
I played the original PC version and it was good, but the Xbox remake blew me away at how awesome Crimson Skies could be.
Nice, dunno how I forgot about Crimson Skies. Damn MS has a lot of IP hibernating, time to wake them up.
Those games you listed better wait, instead i want lost odyssey 2 and blue dragon 2 amongst others. Even a new Sudeki.
Links no that was a great golf game
1 vs 100 reboot
question: does Microsoft still own the Tex Murphy licence or did the original Access guys bought it from them so they could Kickstart Tesla Effect? what about Links LS?
Bring back Sony and Nintendo, you're killing them.
My question is "why haven‘t they?" MS has inherited/created a diverse line-up, but they don‘t take advantage. Please, Phil! Change this! But Xbox folk need to buy and evangelize these games too!
Jade Dynasty? Kotor? Nah, i think those IPs belong to EA, well, dang it.
I think Jade Empire IP has been expired from Bioware license because it's over 10 years since 2004. If i'm not mistake.
You're not a mistake, dude.
Crimson skies. God I want that game. This is my biggest problem with Microsoft. They'll happily churn out Halo and Gears and 3 Forza games in 2 years but a classic gem like Crimson skies which really has no equivalent in the market just lies dormant. Get in done MS and I'll buy an Xbox for it.
I guess the problem lays with gamers and MS.... While many here would love many of these reboots, how many would actually buy them? People need to talk with there wallets too.... There has been new IP, not sell well enough when you consider the rising costs of development, and you can somewhat understand why they stick with tried and trusted sequels..... Its not just MS either to be fair....
It's pretty much what pogmathoin said. People don't even know what crimson skies is. It's not gonna sell well. That's the truth. That is also why Killer Instinct didn't get much marketing and got the semi-f2p model. They were not sure how many people would actually play it and it would have to compete with Mortal Kombat. I think more people loved it than they thought though
Mech Assault sequel or reboot. I want it NOW !
I'd like a new fusion frenzy, there's not really any party games like it this gen so far!
voodoo vince, blinx, viva pinata, fuzion frenzy, perfect dark pgr nah, we got forza for that mechassault, meh amped, again meh halo wars, meh yeah maybe
It would be nice for Playground Games to develop something other than Horizon once in a while. Perhaps even mix it, although both of those games require different approaches and it would take a lot more time to develop different titles. At least that would break the Forza/Halo/Gears joke.
Give us a new Shadowrun! That game was so ahead of it's time and hands down one of the best multiplayer games of last gen.
Hopefully MS will add it to BC for you X1 owners.
With exception to PGR I hope rest stay where they belong in the past!
If and whenever they bring these games to retail or Digital stores they are day one buys .
A proper Shadowrun RPG or an RPG set in the same universe, bring that cyberpunk fantasy.
I loved Shadowrun on SNES and I still have it. Shadowrun 2007 needed a campaign and more MP maps but the gameplay was more balanced than 90% of the games I play today. I still play the Shadowrun FPS. It should have never been a full $60 game though.
i wouldn't mind if Rare made a Jet Force Gemini game.
sudeki brute force pgr kameo mechassault otogi advent rising panzer dragon grabbed by the ghoulies gunvalkyrie too human armed and dangerous men of valor new legends pariah
Otagi 1&2 were great but very strange games.
What no Bloodwake?
I was hoping to see Crimson Skies in the list. If MS brought it back, I would buy an Xbox One just for that.
Otagi 1 & 2 , Break Down , Metal Wolf Choas and a little game called Metal Arms:Glitch in the System. also don't know why MS didn't pursue Tomonobu Itagaki for Devil Third would like to see on XB1 now that Ninja gaiden is dead.
Too Human reboot. Otogi. Blinx. Banjo Threeie And Conker.
