man, why couldn't they have just finished it? all that work for nothing? man that really makes me mad I can't believe that they got THAT far into making the game only to cancel it and give us something that really has graphics that would've been good 5 years ago. I really hope that Lucasarts reads these forums just to know what they did. I hope they make another indy game pretty soon.
Search for any of the various Youtube video downloader programs out there. Also, if you can view the source code you can sometimes find where the stuff is at on the sites server and swipe it from there, but that's rare to have such an open hole.
You know I'm in the middle of playing Uncharted 2. I loved the first game, so I had to get the second one, anyway. Here I am playing this game and seeing how brilliant it is iv every way, Gameplay, Graphics, Sound and Music, Story and Characters, it's amazing
This is the game that won Game of the Year at the Spike TV Video Game Awards people. It won for good reason trust me. Seeing these videos just reminds me of what could have been. This game could have been the Uncharted Killer and if this version had come out instead of the steaming pile of camel dung that we did get, then it would be bringing home the Game of the Year award.
Do you think we will ever get an Indy game on the 360 or PS3?
I have a feeling it'll be a long time before we get another realistic Indy game. We had to wait about six years for SoK and there's no telling how long we'll have to wait for the next one, if they bother to make it at all.
I was out at the local bi-weekly bullwhip workshop here in San Francisco (http://www.laughingbear.org/whippery.html) when someone riding by on his bicycle stopped to watch. We invited him to come try it out and he said, "I guess I should, I worked on the Indiana Jones game."
"Staff of Kings?" I asked.
"Yeah... the ones that didn't ship," he replied.
Turns out he's a level designer at LucasArts (which is in the city here, over in the Presidio), and was working on the next-gen Staff of Kings until work was stopped. He's now working on Star Wars games.
(And yes, after about 5 minutes he was pulling off a basic cattleman's crack with my 7' nylon.)
PS: When discussing safety I mentioned that some folks wear a hat but I'm happy with safety glasses... but that I did have a fedora over in my pack. He then specifically asked if I had a satchel, "You gotta have a satchel!".
