Bring back Project H.A.M.M.E.R.

Destructoid says, "Project H.A.M.M.E.R. was one of those early announced Wii games that never really went anywhere and quietly disappeared. Alongside Sadness, it was the sort of title that stood out from the minigames and gimmicky PS2 ports. Unlike Sadness, there was proof that Project H.A.M.M.E.R. was an actual videogame at one point."

I think Nintendo needs more action oriented games exclusively for the WiiU (like god of war, uncharted, gears of war etc) but Project HAMMER was just a very generic hack and slash imo.

darkgod4111d ago

gears of war is not very fun and its weird cus every one is the size of hulk. and uncharted is not a action game but an 3rd person action adventure. pandoras tower is an action game

CouldHaveYelledUiiW4112d ago

It's not a bad idea, bu I doubt that it satisfies the "Core"-taste. It reminds me more of an old Arcade Style game.
But it would be a Great Downloadable game.

I wish they would revive these games 1st:

Retro's Raven Blade
Monolith's Crisis: Day of Disaster (the 1st reason I wanted a Wii)
Silicon Knight's (Rumored 6/2012) Cancelled Eternal Darkness 2.

Instigator4111d ago

Monolith did finish Disaster, but it didn't come out in NA if that's where you live. It was also one of the first games that piqued my interest in the Wii, but sadly the game turned out pretty mediocre with a few shining moments.

It would be pretty cool to see how Retro handles an RPG, though. An exclusive WRPG could do wonders for Nintendo's line-up.

darkgod4111d ago

western rpg games are bad sorry they just dont know how to handle combat story or animation look at skyrim....

CouldHaveYelledUiiW4111d ago

I wish that they would release Crisis as a cheap Down load title the same for Project Hammer.
I would also like to see how Retro would handle an RPG.

@ darkgod
Who says that they wouldn't have help to put them in the right DIRECTION?

frequentcontributor4112d ago

Yeah, all the footage looked really repetitive, and not that original. This game COULD really be a lot more, if they ever revisited it, but I assume they cancelled it for a reason...

ChickeyCantor4112d ago

Consider the fact that it was one of the first games using a wii-mote.

But they could bring it back and change everything now with the gamepad.

JoNaZ_RG4112d ago

When I first saw it I think it was surprising. They should bring it to Wii U

Dravidian4112d ago

I was think that for while, but I never thought someone would agree (though for hilariously different reasons). With all the processing powed the wii U has, they can make a legit AND beautiful brawler/action game now. I mean, my main problem with the original game preview was the physics. The Wii U can handle that and sooooo much more. Almost makes me want to get one at launch. I'll wait though.

Top 10 Games We’re Happy Got Cancelled

Alex S. from Link-Cable writes: "Sometimes, a game getting cancelled is actually a blessing in disguise that either helps the developer or game series reach new heights with what actually does come next or just saves our time and money by keeping what would obliviously have been a bad time lost forever."

You're happy for the lay offs too?

PiNkFaIrYbOi1514d ago

Why would anyone be happy about any game being cancelled?

0hMyGandhi1514d ago

okay, I'll bite.
I friggin adored Arkane's version of Prey (it's basically the spiritual successor to System Shock that we never got) but I would have loved to see the bounty hunter iteration of the sequel as well, perhaps as it's own IP.

2ndhandcorn1514d ago

Scalebound for me was happy it got canned , the concept seemed picked out of a hat lol terrible.

That RE title on Gameboy colour looks like an Atari Lynx game


The Games that Weren't: Project H.A.M.M.E.R.

At E3 2006, the Wii made its playable-demo debut in anticipation for its launch later that year. A lot of solid titles were previewed in one form or another, including a five-minute demo of a game being developed by Nintendo Software Technology (Metroid Prime: Hunters, Mario vs. Donkey Kong) that looked unlike anything else Nintendo had published to that point.

Instead of any of the established characters that would eventually make up the roster for the then-unfolding Super Smash Bros. Brawl, it starred a hulking cyborg known as M-09 as he made his way through a series of robots armed with only one weapon: a titanic hammer that smashed robots as easily as it smashed everything else. Cars, walls, crates, whatever.

Nintendo always enjoys bringing things from the past to life, it seems.


Good riddance: 10 games we're happy were canceled

Destructoid: Just because a videogame has been announced (and sometimes millions of dollars dumped into them), that's no guarantee they'll see the fluorescent lights of your favorite retailer.

Today, Capcom announced it had pulled the plug on Mega Man Universe. While fans of the Blue Bomber shed a tear, we're sitting around the office shrugging indifferently. Based on what we had played, we weren't sold on the idea anyhow: LittleBigPlanet meets Mega Man with silly graphics and sluggish controls? We'll pass, thanks.

While we're always saddened to hear that game cancelations and job cuts sometimes go hand-in-hand, there are definitely a few games that we're happy to live without. Here are ten games that we'll sleep well knowing we'll never have to play.

I agree, Harold Wake was an awful game glad they shelved it

Etseix4569d ago

agree 100% when i saw the trailer for Harold Wake it was not so good, i expected it to be using the unreal engine Epic showed a lil time ago, :/

SeraphimBlade4569d ago

I hadn't even heard of it. Glad I didn't. Sounds ridiculous, and not the good, Katamari kind of ridiculous.

lashes2ashes4569d ago

harold wake is a joke as im shure you know. its not real

SeraphimBlade4569d ago

I didn't really follow anything about Wake for quite a while. It sounded like if it was real, it was one of those things that got tossed around for like a week before getting dropped altogether. That and it seemed weird to throw a joke entry into the middle of a real list.

spunnups4569d ago

This is Vegas is a great concept, wish someone could pull something like that off.

airhorn954569d ago

I know I was waiting and waiting for it to be released.... Maybe one day

Knightofelemia4569d ago

Wish Shenmue 3 would make an appearance on 360/PS3. I was kinda stoked about This is Vegas shame it got cancelled. But who the hell wants to play a game about John and Kate plus 8 the show is stupid.

Unknown_SNAKE4569d ago (Edited 4569d ago )

i am never feel Happy when i hear the word (Canceled):(
it always makes me heart broken no matter would i play the game or not :D
