Armada of the Damned No More

It would seem a typical Disney move to cancel the development of an awesome looking pirate game scheduled to release right in the middle of the pirate fever presumed to follow Pirates of the Caribbean 4. Thank god I sold my stock in these hosers.

Disney cancels Pirates of the Caribbean: Armada of the Damned; Propaganda suffers layoffs

On the bright side, perhaps it’s a good sign. Curse of the Black Pearl was by far the best of the trilogy, and it was accompanied by a Disney that was afraid to market, merchandise, or monopolize on it in any way. Maybe if the suits at Disney are again feeling standoffish about pirates, it means the creative forces behind Stranger Tides will be free to do things right. Or maybe it just means we’re all being deprived a killer pirate video game.

Holy carp, words cannot express the sheer awesome might that this game will be. Did I just see a special combat move where you stab your opponent’s foot to the ground? I think I did. Did he later kick him in the nuts? Maybe. And use an anchor like a flail? Most def. And the scenery, the characters, and all the rest? I feel all tingly. I don’t say this lightly – it just MIGHT be the best pirate video game ever!
