Is there anything sadder than a canceled video game? Years of man hours, creativity, blood, sweat and tears down the drain without a single player ever being able to appreciate the effort.

This is THIS IS VEGAS -- another open world adventure, this time set in the City of Sin itself. The setting easily lends itself to video games: expect fighting,...
