This is Vegas Canned?

This is Vegas is Midway's open-world lifestyle action game, originally slated for a 2008 release. Eventually, Midway pushed back the title for launch some time in 2009. But it looks as though things went from bad to worse.

Last week it's been reported that Midway is to become part of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. Apparently, after the acquisition Midway would be known as WB Games Chicago. The buyout has evidently influenced the company's lineup and the first victim is This is Vegas. Of course, this hasn't been confirmed officially yet. As far as we know Gamestop informed its pre-order customers that the game has been canceled.

Here's a few snips from our preview of the game:

"This is Vegas maintains the atmosphere of a living environment, so when the player sits at a blackjack table, everything around works as it would in real casinos. Gambling enthusiasts pace every which way, some of which sit down beside you at the table to join the game..."

"The idea is not to offer too realistic and explicit scenes of violence or sex (damn!). Even so, it's been reported that the publisher and developer of This is Vegas are working closely with the ESRB on whether or not to include nudity in the game. (Pussies. - 2Lions)"

Can't think of a single person who was even remotely interested in this - heck, I even forgot it existed.

Seriously, this is a mind thing for me...but if this game was being made by some other company, i would liked it. But the moment i saw Midway's name plastered on it, it turned me off completely. What a downfall Midway has had. Sad.

Didn't really gave shit about this game. And how could we? We got like 2-3 media updates and that was it.
