But, in recent times, Konami has come back with a vengeance, sporting a soccer title that aims to take the crown away from EA.

 

NX Rumors Continue to Mount, Nintendo Will Not React

nintendo-NX-cover_129x129 If anything can be learned from the year of 2016, it is that fan hype can destroy something that, when released, is still very good. The initial thought here would be No Man’s Sky. A quiet development team and so much fan hype ultimately led to mediocre scores for the anticipated titles.

What Could’ve Been: Epic Donald Was In Development/Never Made

epicdonald1 I’m a huge fan of Epic Mickey. When the game was released on the Wii, I thought it was one of the coolest Disney games ever.

Spector has always talked about how he would have loved to have done a Ducktales game, but…
