I'm more hoping for Colonial Marines though... please, please don't cancel that one Sega.

Not glad to see another RPG hit the cutting board, but...

Glad Obsidian canned it. They shouldn't even be allowed to touch keyboards. Everything they touch turns into poop. I hope they go belly up as well.

Too bad the good companies get sacked while crap companies that live off of other game company IPs like Obsidian are allowed to stay in business.
