Why do promising games get cancelled so often?

Stargate Or, whatever happened to Stargate SG-1: The Alliance?

It seems that the long awaited Stargate FPS has been cancelled. It's disappointing news for Stargate fans, and a dark day indeed for its development team. Are the rumours of SG-1's demise true, and if they are, why was the project abandoned?

The crazy wolf-man answers almost nothing of this and instead veers off topic and rants on and on about nonsense like the lunatic that he is.

Auto Assault Beta Preview

Auto Assault sexsploitation Once upon a weekend dreary, I chanced upon an MMO weak and weary... err me, not the MMO. How can that be so much clearer in Poe's original...

Auto Assault, "The Fastest, Most Destructive MMO Ever!" as the tagline goes, opened it's doors to all (as long as you read Penny-Arcade) for a long weekend Beta at the end of January. Given my fascination with all things vehicular and the art of blowing shit up, I took this as a good opportunity to combine both in one heady cocktail.

TRAPT by Tecmo

You can not contain this much craziness

TRAPT icon The unfortunate Queen Allura is framed for her father's murder. To avoid being murdered by her enemies she is forced to abandon her castle and hide in the Black Forest with her maid Rachel. Somehow, for obscure reasons, in the forest the devil transforms Allura into an evil temptress / trap-master [sic]. She returns to the castle with the devil to take brutal revenge on her enemies.

Arcade Classics - an introduction to retro gaming

Why?

If you haven't heard of Trackmania Nations now's as good a time as any to download its deceptively small installer (265Mb*) and have some fun with what appears to be a combination between a fairly decent race sim and an 8 year old kid's vision of what a race track should be.

Dashboard Update for Xbox 360 Live

Xbox 360 round button

First we were told the update to the 360 dashboard wasn't supposed to happen until March. It was released last night. This change in release schedule is quite a turnaround. Is this the full 'mega patch' that was promised for March, or a cut-down version designed to address something urgent?

My second registration attempt with a different email address worked much better, albeit for something you would think was an automated process it still took around 6 hours.

These things are usually under some kind of NDA, but I can't seem to find one..

Dead or Alive 4 still not very lively

Dead or Alive 4 Review

From the slew of previews it's possible to work out what's happened with DOA4. Not only did this crucial title slip and miss the US launch, but it's still not ready - that doesn't mean they aren't prepared to ship it though...

Auto Assault Beta Weekend

Auto Assault Beta

So, NCSoft "decided to give Penny Arcade as many keys as they had readers" for a beta weekend in what would seem to amount to a stress-test of their new MMO, Auto Assault. Penny Arcade Beta Weekend Signup Auto Assault Site

Now, I don't know if the problem lies with surveymonkey.com or NCSoft, but the signup would seem to be rather... spotty at best.
