Developers of Highlander said nothing about planning trilogy in previews i read, but they did praise Jaguar hardware, use of 65,000 colours etc.Last i heard it was to be 1 massive game, spread over several CD's, then Atari decided to release it as 3 seperate instalments.
Primal rage might have been Time warners choice to put on CD, but what about MK3 or Defender 2000? Jeff was never happy with atari telling him what to do with his game and all he planned, in terms of CD enhancements, were FMV interviews and historical data segments.
I mean when i look at the very 1st PR statements from Atari UK regarding Jaguar CD (Darryl Still) 'yes, we have CD units in development...we're working closely with developers to ensure that future peripherals (ie the CD drive) get the software that does them justice', all i can think of is that Battlemorph, Freelancer etc were the sort of games i expected to be out on CD only and i'd have welcomed more S.E's like Hoverstrike CD if they all turned out that well, but 2 Dragon's Lair games, Space Ace etc, thought i'd left that crap behind on MCD and no matter who decided to put the 2D sprite based fighters on CD, if Primal Rage was out on MD, SNES (and 32X?) on cart and MK 3 was out on SNES/MD on cart, i was expecting Jaguar to get them on cart as well.
It did so little to give me faith in buying a Jaguar CD, in fact it felt like a p*ss take.the base Jaguar, having been promised so many games, was now looking for me to spend even more money, just to get same games a stock MD had in cases of Primal Rage and MK3.
It just seemed like the Atari from the ST days..ohh sorry, you've only a single-sided drive, you need a double-sided drive now...ohh, sorry you just bought a 520STFM Discovery Pack, we're phasing that out, replacing it with the STe.Seemed Atari just wanted me to keep shelling out, so it could compete with the competition, not that Sega were much different in that regard it has to be said!.
