Rockstar: before GTA3

Posted by Charlatanized in 01-27-2008, 04:25 AM

DMA Designs, the company behind Lemmings and the N64 games Space Station Silicon Valley and Body Harvest would go on to become Rockstar North and produce the industry-changing Grand Theft Auto III. It sort of blows my mind that people completely overlook Body Harvest as a primitive GTA III.

Also, my mind is blown in a small nostalgic way as I’m currently playing Sin and Punishment on the Virtual Console. On its release, I never would have dreamed I’d get to play that game eight years and two console generations later via download on a system based on motion control.

Rockstar and Capcom seem to have a pretty close relationship.

Hey, I’ve got another one. 

Rockstar and Capcom seem to have a pretty close relationship.

Red Dead Revolver was originally a game completely created by Capcom – a Japanese company. It was cancelled by Capcom, but Rockstar – an American company – got the rights to make the game. As far as I know they changed the original concept of what the original Capcom game was supposed to be. Nevertheless, they essentially developed the game that Capcom had cancelled.

Not to mention Capcom publishes Rockstar’s GTA games in Japan.

For some reason, international relations interest me the most. :lol
