Driver Next-Generation : FPP Gameplay Build

This build of what would become Driver : San Francisco is from September of 2008, 3 years before the game was finally released! The build, as you could probably guess, is titled “FPP Gameplay Build.” Despite running on the Xbox 360, it has PS3 button prompts. In the gameplay video below, you can see that the “Jumping” action is already available, which was one of the primary hooks of the retail game. An early cutscene can be seen in storyboard form, but the audio seems to play after the fact.

Most of the other options seem to freeze the game, but rest assured, more videos of different builds are coming soon!

Mega Man Universe – Off-screen Pictures from NYCC 2010

Calm down Mega Man fans, I do not have a copy of this one (yet, anyway!). Mega Man Universe was the game that would feature a ton of different Mega Man versions, including the one from the awesomely-awful US covers. Unfortunately, the game was cancelled, an act that too many Mega Man fans have gotten all too use to. I took these pictures when I visited NYCC back in 2010. They are pretty awful, to be perfectly honest. But hey, I didn’t expect the game to be cancelled. I’d love to give detailed impressions of the game, but it has been almost two years, so that isn’t going to happen. I do recall the game looking quite bleh, so I guess I should have stuck with my gut and taken more than what you see below.

 

 

Check out the pictures, after the break, and get a glimpse at yet another Mega Man game that is never to be.
