Gamescom 2010

Yesterday, I posted a "rumor" story that a bunch of Rock Band 3 tracks had been leaked in Germany. Harmonix got word of the internet story and released a stern admonishment to us and other media outlets to not traffic in rumors and speculation! 

"Wait for official setlist!" they cry. And so I owe them, and you, a heartfelt apology.

To drive the point home, and staunch the information leaks about Rock Band 3's setlist.  Harmonix released the following official response video.

"We are communications professionals," says John Drake, "And we would never accidentally leak 83 songs long before our game comes out."

Wait a minute...

Sometimes, a game comes along with such a unique mechanic and plot, that I feel obligated to call your attention to it, because I hope people play it instead of ignore it. I want this game to be another Scribblenauts and not another Psychonauts.  That game: Ghost Trick: Phantom Dectective. It's not a high-profile title, but it's amazing, and is best explained in video form:

Fresh from Gamescom 2010 comes this amazing Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions trailer. Among the cool things about the upcoming super-hero game is the variety of costumes -- Spidey always was a fahion plate. Anyway, I think you will be impressed with the Scarlet Spider outfit you see in the video below:

7 Questions With BioShock Infinite's Ken Levine 

As creative director and co-founder of Irrational Games, Ken Levine could have just pumped out another BioShock game without changing that much, and the game would have sold well based on the name alone. But thankfully, that's not what he's about, and that's exactly why BioShock Infinite represents a massive departure from the first game and its sequel. There's an entirely new look and aesthetic, yet despite the fact that you're now hundreds of feet in the air and there isn't a Splicer or a Little Sister in sight, it still feels like BioShock.

Read this Bioshock Infinite interview to hear Ken talks about the game in a lot more detail, and answer a lot of questions that are probably burning through your brain as you read this. Go on, check 'em out. The Feed will still be here when you get back.

New Bioshock Infinite Details

I can't wait to play Bioshock Infinite, don't get me wrong, but who would really want to go live in a city in the sky? I'm nervous enough at a rooftop party. Just imagine the impracticalities of living at 10,000 feet. Would executives have to ask for a "20,000 foot view?" What if all the kids decide to drop handfuls of pennies over the rail?!!

Regardless, Kevin got a peek at the new demo at Gamescom, raving:

"Above, you can get your first peek at Elizabeth, outside of the trailer. Booker DeWitt, the character you play, is tasked with finding her, and has managed to do so in the sprawling, enormous, floating cityscape of Columbia. However, getting her out is going to be a lot harder than finding her. In fact, I can't describe to you how crazy things get in this demo, which is just a tiny snippet of the game, and about one third of the way into the title."

Gamescom 2010

I've been posting a lot about Gamescom 2010 over the past week, but I thought you might like to see inside the Cologne, Germany game exposition. In other words: We've got pictures!

Check out the gallery of floor photos from the show! (But keep in mind: These were taken during the "press day," before the general public was allowed onto the show floor, so you have to imagine these scenes packed with fellow, Euro-gamers!)

Sine Mora

Goichi "Suda 51" Suda, creator of No More Heroes, has a new game up his sleeve, and it will be called Sine Mora. The title, Latin for "without delay" describes a PSN and 360 title that uses 3D technology in a horizontal side-scrolling shooter that is  "unlike any other, with a unique twist on time manipulation."

When Michael Jackson: The Experience was revealed at E3 this year, none of the game was shown. Bummer! But luckily, Ubisoft is showing off the game at Gamescom this week. We spoke to brand manager Felecia Willams, who gave us insight on what to expect, as well as showing some of her moves on the Wii version of The Experience.

The Kinect version won't feature avatars, but will put you in the game. I hate being onscreen, but that doesn't mean I'll hate this game."You're going to be apply different all different looks onto your yourself," Williams explains. "You could be made of lights, or made of smoke. There are a lot of different effects, so people who are a little shy will have options too."

Oh, and the game will be able to teach you how to Moonwalk. Moonwalking: CONFIRMED.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow

Konami's spooky "re-imagining" Castlevania: Lords of Shadow will be available at retail stores nationwide for Xbox 360 v and PlayStation 3 on October 5, 2010.

This is one to watch: The game was made in collaboration with Kojima Productions (Metal Gear) and is described as a "fresh and radical re-imagining of the vastly popular series with an epic tale of love, despair and hope, in a time when the dead walk among the living." Sounds good to me!

Rock Band 3

I love leaks and rumors. Something about getting information about a game before it's been "officially" released is fun in an "illicit knowledge" kind of way -- even if half the time it turns out to be inaccurate. So here's today's leak/rumor: A video reportedly shot at Gamescom (since pulled off the internet) showed off a bunch of new Rock Band 3 tracks.

I can't vouch for the truthfulness of any of these sources; it's not official, etc. But here's the lineup of might-be-in-the-game songs:

New inFamous 2 Details

If The Who were singing about this update, they would belt out "Meet the new Cole; same as the old Cole" which is exactly what fans were clamoring for with inFamous 2. Are you happy? Cole is back to normal, or as normal as he can be. He's not entirely the old Cole, because he's wearing a completely new set of clothes, but the fan furor that broke out over his updated look resulted in a major change to the game. Nice work, fanbase!

Gamescom yielded a few more surprises in store for Cole and the game, which comes out next year, and we've got all the details. Sucker Punch decided to show us a new power, a new baddie, the city of Newmarais, and of course, the return of Old Cole. Read on for more.
