A terrible thing happened during the Konami/Hudson merger a few weeks ago when the former swallowed up the latter's projects, cancelling the bulk of them. One of the casualties was the long-in-development Bonk: Brink of Extinction for the Nintendo Wii, Sony PlayStation 3, and Microsoft Xbox 360 that would have sprung caveman hero Bonk back into the spotlight from the days of TurboGrafx-16 glory. Bonk's return is not to be, but that doesn't mean that you can't listen to the soundtrack for the dead game. Composer Rich "Disasterpeace" Vreeland has made the game's seven songs available for free streaming, and judging by the intriguing track titles ("Cave People Live Outdoors", "Robots and Dinosaurs, Oh My!"), we missed out on something interesting. I had the opportunity to play Brink of Extinction at E3 last year and while it felt generally unpolished, there was a little spark of potential greatness in it. Here's hoping that while Brink didn't work out, Konami sees fit to try again with Bonk in the future.
