Men on a Vegas trip à la "The Hangover" have three things on their mind: Booze, Boobs, and... Bubble Bobble? Wait, that's not right. But hey, if that's what you're into, Hooters has the place for you. The Hooters Casino Hotel opened Joystixx this month, an attempt to tap into the arcade and console gaming market. Also, Insert Coin(s) opened up on the strip this year.

It might sound a little better without the Hooters tag on it, but according to Kotaku, online reviews have been harsh anyway. There isn't much official info on the types of games offered, but based on reviews it sounds like they only have a small selection of arcade games. Insert Coin(s) is getting way better reviews.

    Pretty lame. You can do this at home. People sitting in front of screens all night isn't exactly a social activity.

    If I would spend the money to go to Vagas it would not be used to play vidieo games.NASCAR racing would be cool.

    If they're serving themed drinks like you find on The Drunken Moogle, I'm all for it. If they're not gonna go all out with the theme...eh.

    Tacky! I said before that they should be outlawed because we cannot prove that they are educational or useful .

    However, some people get pretty competitive when drunk. But a little games and alcohol shouldn't be too bad. Sounds like a lot of fun :)

    I guess you COULD spend all the money you saved using Game Fly to go to Vegas and pollute a purely social scene with your anti-social rhetoric!

    Anybody who answered 'score', make sure you bend over a little further and spread your cheeks real wide so Corporate America can screw you as deep as possible!

    I wouldn't go all the way to Vegas just to play no video games that's for sure. It would be a waste of my time and money!

    I would never go to Vegas to play video games.I do not gamble either so the shows would be the only thing that would interest me in Vegas.

    SNORE....This is pathetic! VACATION dollars down the drain for something you can do in the privacy of your own home. It's genius in a way, but it's just another way to screw over your spouse on a night on the town.

    It wouldn't appeal to me, however, I am sure there are many to whom it would, especially in Las Vegas. For those who are not gamblers in the traditional sense, or gamers, it will be a money maker.

    Chickies and petes is an amazing sports bar in philadelphia that has what they call the play 2 room where you can hang out in these lounges and order drinks and food while u play nintendo wii... Probably one of coolest and craziest times ive ever had. If your from the area you got to check it out!

    Only because we've already had things just like this for years. What evolved from arcade machines were places with dozens of consoles and computers hooked up. You just paid by the hour to play, and they had a huge selection of games, you could bring your own or play theirs. It was a lot of fun if you didn't have a lot of controllers at your house, or didn't want people over for one reason or another.

    I think that could be a huge hit. Though, I'm not much of a video game player, except for when it comes to mysims (which I play on my wii occasionally, but rarely.)

    Everyone should be aware of how harmful to your mind video games can be. If you expose your children to the horrors of video games they will become serial killers because as we all know children are incapable of thinking for themselves.
