ONM Remembered – #171

“Why did Rare drop these wondrous machines of destruction?”

from N64 Magazine issue 10 (December 1997)

In case you didn’t know, anything involving prototypes, unreleased games or removed features always catches my fancy. Yes, in the first trailers of Blast Corps, there were some really far-out machines in the game, such as this mecha scorpion and Robotech reject.
To try and maintain a construction vehicle theme, I’m guessing, they both got dropped. Sure, there’s still three giant robots in the finished game’s vehicle roster, but it’s just not the same without a giant mechanical pincer monster to round it out!
(mind you, a giant mecha-scorpion deserves top billing – it’d be wasted playing second fiddle to a bulldozer and an oversized RC car)
