I found this while browsing an official E3 games list:

Disney Interactive Studios
High School Musical: Sing It! (PS2, Wii)
High School Musical: Makin' the Cut (DS)
Turok (PS3, X360)

Yeah, awesome.

How in the world did Disney end up with Turok?

In 2005, Buena Vista Games announced it had acquired the rights to the Turok franchise and would be publishing new games for consoles and handhelds. Propaganda Games will develop the new titles, and will be using Unreal Engine 3 to power the console versions. It will be released on Xbox 360 and PS3.

This does a considerable amount of discounting from 'greatest thing ever'. Boo, misleading thread titles; Yay, beer.

I just was commenting on the fact that it's somewhat of a shock after seeing two games about singing and dancing based off a crappy movie, then seeing a game where you run around blowing dinosaurs brains out.

They're diversifying their audience. Haven't you seen Nintendo's success? This is what "the biz" is all about.

Oh, man. Imagine the difficulty of a head shot if the matched the hit box to a dinosaur's walnut-sized brain.

"The target area is only 2 inches wide."

"That's impossible, even for a bot-shooter!"

"Propaganda Games"?

I only read the first few comics of Turok and intelligently avoided the games, but I remember the dinosaurs having genetically enhanced brains or something?

The first time I looked down from the top and saw Unreal 3 engine I jumped to the conclusion it was going to be used for High School Musical: Makin' the Cut. It was an awesome two seconds.

What you read were the bastardized Acclaim version. Try to track down the original Gold Key series of Turok from the 1960s to 1980s. They were pretty cool.

Someone should get all the old Valiant licenses and make games out of those.
"Archer and Armstrong: The Immortal and the Virgin"
"Harbingers: Teenage Angst...with POWERS!"
"Ninjak: American Ninja: Starring Michael Dudikoff"
"Rai: I could be an awesome game maybe"

Acclaim actually owned all those rights, due to their buyout of Valiant.


With their penchant for shit, I was always surprised they didn't use more of the Valiant characters.

I can proudly say I NEVER bought a single Valiant comic.

I can proudly say that my brother bought most of them, and that I've read most of them. He also had multiple copies of Bloodshot #1, with chromium cover!

I'm sad to say that the only Valiant Comics I ever bought were the Nintendo ones.

Boo, misleading thread titles; Yay, bear.

Fix'd for you.
