Hello. i did some news today while I wrote a gamescom piece at the same time! My German side is literally excited from today.
I’ve spent most of my day writing up a preview for Cologne, which you’re going to see later this week. But there was also a bit of news that I managed to get around to while I wrote my piece. Here it is.
- Dark Souls gets delayed by a week in Japan
But the releases for the US and UK are not affected
- Nintendo details 3DS Ambassador Program in scrolling text form
See? It’s not all bad with the 3DS price-cut.

Shane’s moving up in the world from MS. Good for him.

Ouch. That’s not good, is it?

- Levine: BioShock Infinite “looked like ‘BioShock 1 in the sky” at one point
But then it didn’t. And it looks a lot better for it. Rapture’s story was brilliantly told, but Columbia is what made me fall in love with Infinite instantly. Can’t wait for it.

Me and Pat’s going to be at that EA presser next Tuesday. When it announces it, we’ll know. When we know, you’ll know it.

Again, it’s France only. It’s not getting toned down elsewhere.
And that’s it. There’s one more post to come from me this afternoon, but other than that, back same bat time tomorrow.
