The lights are on
Faith and .45 (PS3, Xbox 360) – Deadline games’ biggest claims to fame are Total Overdose, Chili Con Carnage, and the two downloadable Watchmen games that released alongside the movie. Nothing particularly groundbreaking or exciting. It did however have Faith and a .45 in the works, which along with a sweet title, sounded pretty awesome. It was basically Bonny and Clyde the game. It was to take place during the depression and you play as a couple trying to outrun an evil oilman while going on a bank-robbing spree. Unfortunately before the game could release, Deadline Games filed for bankruptcy and never found a publisher for Faith and a .45.
Gears of War: Exile (Xbox 360) – We don’t know anything about Exile, other than that it was a Gears of War game. Many assumed that it was the rumored Gears of War Kinect game, but that comes purely from the announcement that there would be a Gears of War Kinect game, and then Epic Games filed a trademark for the Exile name shortly after. The game was technically never officially announced, but it was officially canceled.
Gotham by Gaslight (PS3, Xbox 360) – Day One Studios, the developer behind F.E.A.R., began work on Batman: Gotham by Gaslight, but the game was canceled. It was to be based on the comic series of the same name published in 1989 that saw Bruce Wayne fight Jack the Ripper in a late 1800s Gotham City. Some art and a video tech demo with distracting cape physics made its way to the web, but that’s likely the most that will ever be seen of the game. It’s hard to imagine another Batman game out in the wild competing with the Arkham series, but it almost happened.

There's a couple I have seen that aren't here. Hero and Gorrilla Nation to name a couple. Hero in particular looked really interesting.
well some of these did deserve death but it's still sad to see so many games getting canceled that could have been awesome.
Awwww, not Bonk! XD
you guys should add Demonic to that list because that was supposed to be released very early in this generation's cycle and was canceled abruptly and the remnants of the video game were used in grandma's boy.
It's too bad about the Gaslight Batman game and the Pirates game - especially when Disney went and released a crappy Tron game. Sometimes they just don't get it.
Whats up with all the using the wrong spelling of words?
Aw... Ender's Game by a good Developer would have been cool.
Aww you guys forget Frame City Killer. I remember reserving that lol.
This is to bad, Gotham by gaslight and the Pirates Armada game looked promising,oh well now we'll never know.
Really disappointed about Faith and a .45. Love those noir style games, and probably the best named game in quite a while.
i love how they put duke nukem forever on this
Why Tiberium Why? I don't CARE how bad you might have been I still would have played you!
man i would have loved a dirty harry game :(
I thought This is Vegas and Armada of the Damned looked pretty interesting. And I don't know why the Wii was excluded from this list, but I'll add The Grinder, which look like a first person version of HVS' Hunter series. That game had my attention, but it looks like its dead. There was also Project Hammer, from the early Wii sizzle reels.
And what about that game from the original PS3 footage, it was called Eight Days. I thought that one looked cool, though Uncharted eventually became what it looked like Eight Days was going to do
