    I'd definitely say "mock-up" on some of those shots (definitely was a common thing to do in magazines around the PS1 era), but either way, they are very interesting. Giant eve fan here myself, thanks for sharing that scan!

    As far as I know, this was the same demo disc which was used in the first Wii interactive kiosks in GameStop/EB stores. If so I've got it in my own collection. :D

    EDIT: sorry, should have read that more closely, I missed the "GC" part. :O

    Still waiting for a complete build of Lamborghini for Xbox to surface...
    Rarely played a racing game which felt so... well executed, really.

    Somehow it had a Metropolis Street Racer vibe to it for me, don't know why. I just really like the demo and take it for a spin now and then.

    I forget another Holy Grail for me, this is really hard:

    - Alan Wake from E3 2005

    This Alan Wake was totally different from final version. It's free roaming, with missions.

    Mine would have to be:

    Anything beta or pre release for Any Dead or Alive game, for Saturn, Playstation, Xbox, Dreamcast, Playstation 2 or Xbox 360. I would go as far to say anything that even differed slightly from retail.

    Castlevania Resurrection for Dreamcast

    Sega Saturn Shenmue

    Duke Nukem Forever Prototypes

    Stargate SG-1 Alliance

    Sega Saturn - Ridge Racer
    Nintendo DS - Europa Universalis

    Both of which are unconfirmed if they reached working status, unfortunately.

    It seems that Resident Evil 3.5 carries much of the allure for some RE fans that the early development versions of Ocarina of Time has for many Zelda fans.

    While these things were cut for a reason and the finished product was unquestionably more polished and solid a game than these in-development versions were, the desire to explore what seems like entirely new parts of a well-loved game can be very strong.

    Word to that.

    While 1.5 and 3.5 have been on my mind lately one question has continually reemerged that I can't quite answer. Since both versions of both games were canned and redone with the second iteration being officially released and part of the story canon, are we to consider 1.5 and 3.5 canon as well? Or is the fact they were canned and essentially replaced by another game in their exact same spot reason enough to disregard them as anything other an a possible "alternate universe".

    I think anything unreleased/scrapped can't really be considered canon.
