Although it’s now considered the bronze medal of the gaming industry, Nintendo’s track record and long list of classics make it the indisputable king of gaming in the eyes of many. Since the early 1980s, the company has worked tirelessly to release a myriad of new video games every year, and until about 2009, they worked equally hard to innovate (fight me). Sometimes this innovation brought about abysmal failure, see the Virtual Boy, but in most cases the company found great success.

As with all ideas, not every one is a winner, leading to projects being scrapped for one reason or another. Unfortunately, the same can be said for some good ideas, as this list will show. But hey, some of these projects did eventually make it to production by means of repackaging… we’re just not sure that was necessarily a good thing. Without further ado, here are 7 Nintendo projects that never saw the light of day.

Always happy when an episode includes a boss fight. It serves as a nice change of pace and lets me know there’s a new power up on the other side of their door!

PSG: Let’s Play Axiom Verge – Part 9

Lots of wandering but some new shit as well, so that’s good at least. The hypo atomizer certainly will prove useful -I just need to figure out where the hell to go so I can use it!

PSG: Let’s Play Axiom Verge – Part 8

Okay, I do make it to new areas in this episode, buuuuut I’m not sure I can do anything there yet. So gear up for some backtracking and uncertainty! Huh… kind of sounds like my life in general.

PSG: Let’s Play Axiom Verge – Part 7

Okay, I know he’s technically a drone and can’t even be a spider given he has only 4 legs but CMON! He’s adorable -and Spider Bro is too catchy of a nickname not to use it. So let’s ride, Spider Bro. And we shall claim this world!

Huh, did not expect gene splicing to work its way into the story. Even still, I’ve gotta say… pre-tay pre-tay cool.

All kinds of new stuff in this episode! New abilities, new territories, new boss battle -you name it! This frickin’ game is awesome!

Well, this episode got off to a bit of a slow start… Sorry about that! The good news is, I DID figure out where to go next! Hazah!

Project Shanks Gaming: Let’s Play Axiom Verge – Part 3

Remember how I got through AM2R without dying a single time? Wasn’t that soooo cooooool how I did that?! Yeah, that’s not the case in Axiom Verge unfortunately… It’s going to take some time to adapt to this game’s health bar…

Project Shanks Gaming: Let’s Play Axiom Verge – Part 2

Another day, another boss battle. Also, I go blind in one eye and have to resort to fighting like Popeye the Sailor! Someone should seriously tell that Gundam he’s in the wrong game, though…
