At the Capcom roundtable at Comic-Con this afternoon, it was confirmed that a Street Fighter favorite was making a comeback in the new game: Cammy, that woman of the amazing camouflage wedgie, will be back in the next go-round of the venerable fighting series. Although it wasn't officially announced by Capcom, Cammy showed up in the newest promo video for the game.

Street Fighter IV is scheduled to come out on PC, 360 and PS3 sometime in 2009.

At Comic-Con today, Electronic Arts announced, what else, a comic book! Specifically, a comic book based on upcoming action game Mirror's Edge. WildStorm, an imprint of DC Comics, created the limited-edition book, and EA and DC will distribute the first issue of the Mirror’s Edge to lucky conventioneers at Comic-Con.

Mirror's Edge the comic combines the talents of writer and story designer Rhianna Pratchett with artist Matthew Dow Smith. Pratchett is also wrote the script for the game, so everything is canon. The six-part comic series will introduce readers to Faith and her fellow ‘Runners’ – a "network of couriers who use acrobatic moves to avoid being detected as they traffic packages across a network of rooftops and aerial skyways."

Get yours today at the Con, or pick it up in your local comic shop in the very near future.

Here's the official slate of short comedy-horror films that Microsoft is rolling out this fall on Xbox Live:

“Doggie Heaven (Woof!)” — The creative team behind the smash hit “Saw” films, James Wan (“Saw,” “Death Sentence”) and Leigh Whannell, tell the story of a young man who is having a dog of a day.

If Rock Revolution had come out before Rock Band, we would have been very impressed… but it didn’t, and it’s impossible to talk about this title without comparing it to bigger music games.
