yeh i remember reading a lot on this game and it sounded VERY promising. I have to admit though i completely forgot about about it until now thought lol.

Such a shame this was canned. It could have been the new IP I was waiting for... I was hoping square enix would have picked this up.

HebrewHammer2416d ago

What is GRAN Theft Auto? lol
