Sequels That Should Have Been: Septerra Core

Oh poor, misunderstood Septerra Core. You don’t deserve to only be remembered as the game Steve Downes got the job for Master Chief in Halo from. No two fanbases loathe each other as much as I imagine Japanese and Western

Sequels That Should Have Been: Vietcong 3
