Aspect Warriors [GEN MD SNES – Cancelled?]

Aspect Warriors is a cancelled action game / RTS based on the Warhammer 40000 universe, that was in development by Electronic Arts for the Genesis / Mega Drive and Super Nintendo. The game was previewed in some european magazines, but in the end it seems that it was never released (or was it published under a different name?). Only few screens remain to preserve the existence of Aspect Warriors.

Hammer vs. Evil D. in Soulfire [Sega Mega CD – Cancelled]

Hammer vs. Evil D. in Soulfire” is a cancelled action game based on MC Hammer, an American rapper most popular during the late 1980s until the mid-1990s. The game was in development by GTE Entertainment and it would have been published by Sega for their Mega CD add-on for the Genesis / Mega Drive, but for some reasons it was never released. We don’t even know much about “Hammer vs. Evil D. in Soulfire”‘s gameplay and only a short video can be seen in the videos below (second one at 03:45).

Tee Off (Virtual Golf) [Saturn – Beta / Tech Demo]

In 1994 / 1995 Core Design was working on a new golf game titled “Tee Off”, planned to be released on the Sega 32X, Playstation and Saturn. Various magazines published 3D models for the characters, taken from an early tech demo, that shown an awesome graphic for its time. As wrote by Yakumo and Segafreak_NL on the Assembler Forum, Tee Off later became Virtual Golf / Tournament Leader and was released in Europe and Japan only for the Saturn. The 3D pre-rendered models were never used in the final game, but the option select font remained the same. You can see a video from the final version on Segagagadomain!

System Shock 2 [Dreamcast – Cancelled]

System Shock 2 its a FPS originally released in 1999 for PC developed by Irrational Games and Looking Glass Studios and published by Electronic Arts, in may 2000, a week after Looking Glass Studios closed doors, Vatical Entertainment announced a dreamcast port for a end year release, the port was being made by Marina Games, and they missed the release date, in 2001 Vatical said that the port was still in development, but no release date was given, in the end the game was cancelled, and Marina Games closed without a game made or ported, the possibly reason was SEGA decision to exit the console market.

In april 2010 gamer_s from dreamcast-talk forum found in his devkit, a System Shock 2 and Thief 2 folders, while System Shock 2 could be bootable, Thief 2 was in very early stages and lacked many of necessary dreamcast files, the devkit was from a Eidos employee, in 9th september, to celebrate the 11th anniversary of dreamcast in USA, gamer_s released the files, they can be downloaded in this link http://dreamcast-talk.com/beta/

Sadly the port was at beginnig of development too, loadings are very long (about 5 minutes or more), slow framerate, no HUD and you cannot open doors.
