Joust 3D Cancelled, And Other "Secrets"

joust1.jpgAhh, Sufer Girl. We don't know who you are, but we're really hoping you aren't a guy and that these mental images crossing you with Cameron Diaz (from back when she was hot) with a future, desperate, heroin-strung version of Scarlett Johansson aren't for naught. Now you tell us that Midway had planned to make 3D versions of all their classic games in the early 2000's, and that this Joust screen is proof of the project's cancellation. Then you listed 17 other games, many confirmed since by Google searches, that existed, were canceled and no one knew the wiser... until you swam to shore. We'll put that list after the jump while we try not to cry again over Deus Ex 3.
