E3 '07: Gamecock gets in The Box

Independent publisher picks up Spark Unlimited's first-person shooter, due in 2008.


SANTA MONICA, Calif.--Gamecock will be picking up Spark Unlimited's Legendary: The Box, and publishing the title in Spring 2008 on the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.

Legendary: The Box is set in New York, where art thief Charles Deckard accidentally steals Pandora's Box. He opens the box, and unleashes all form of magical beasts, werewolves, and gryphons into the world. Deckard must find a way to get the mythical monsters back in the box and save civilization.

Craig Allen, Spark Unlimited's CEO, commented, "Like most developers, we've always had a dream game that we've secretly been working on. We've made a name for ourselves with World War II first-person shooters, but Legendary: The Box is our labour of love."

Spark Unlimited is based in Sherman Oaks, California, and was founded in 2002 by former Medal of Honor developers. Other Spark Unlimited titles are Call of Duty: Finest Hour and the upcoming Turning Point: Fall of Liberty.

Sounds good on paper, we will have to see more about this and see if they will actually make and release it on time.

In premise the game does sound intriguing to me. Though, in all honesty, I do find myself wondering what Spark Unlimited has made in the past...

Dude I have to laugh at that company name "Gamecock". Ladies watch out GameCock is coming out hard ,fast and it is huge, They are going big with Legendary Box. This company will be huge with this title. They might just score 12 or more in the box due to the mammoth greatness. Sorry guys I'm done, I just had to have fun with this. I just trying to stop the next 10 repeat post from occurring. I just needed to start my day with a stupid rant before my boring day of work.. LOL

Need to kill the E3 07 part since they are one of the rebels not going this year. Now for this publisher... I think it is a total joke and the fact is that its not even another funny ass publisher... Now if the company was making a game like Postal then I would be sold but the fact that this "company" is doing FPS and trying to "revive" games is just as silly as the company name itself. Also there is no way that it will be another EA or Ubisoft for the simple fact that if a parent sees Made By: Gamecock or Gamecock Inc. on the box they will not buy it. That kills basically all thoughts of T or E rated games and kills the market where EA and Ubi take the lead.

Thing is, Lamprey, every time some news regarding Gamecock comes up, there are about 500 comments saying "LOL GAMECOCK I GET IT LLOOOOLLLLLLLZ". It gets old, fast. Like hearing little kids swearing constantly on Xbox Live, actually.

The game looks promising but I have to laugh at the headline..

Avatar image for lamprey263

Steel_Cyclone, I was just letting my inner child out at nobody's expense, so stop acting like your soooo mature, it just makes you seem young and desperate to seek approval. Honestly, I've never once giggled seeing "Gamecock". Though, I do somewhat disapprove, but only because after spending countless hours playing games online where people wear headsets, I get used to hearing the word *** (3 letter derogatory word for homosexual, starts with F, ends in G, I think there's a vowel somewhere in the middle) every other spoken sentence. It wouldn't take a sociologist to know a name like "Gamecock" would be received with tons of LOLs, BWAHAHAs, and LMAOs in the gaming community.

"Gamecock gets in The Box" The title is so wrong on so many level, lam not going to touch the sex joke.

Avatar image for comthitnuong

The story sounds really weak. Also, they really need to change their company's name.

"Best... Headline... Ever." Agreed. Innuendo ftw.

Hopefully not rubbish like Finest Hour. That was really boring on the PS2

It looks interesting.

Avatar image for Conanfan1

Could be good. Is it just me, or does the title of this story remind anyone else of that SNL "**** in a box" video?

Avatar image for jesus_knight

Avatar image for linkzero

"find a way to get the mythical monsters back in the box" Sounds a bit like Pokemon. :lol:

A gamecock is a rooster used for fighting, Lamprey. Why is that funny? This game looks interesting.
