Marginalia: 7.27.09

Yes, this is a real book.  And what the hell is that penguin doing? Destructoid: The price of a silenced shotgun in Far Cry 2 has dropped from $10 to $5. How generous!

Destructoid: Let the delays begin: Splinter Cell: Conviction and Red Steel 2 pushed back to 2010.

Gamasutra: If it works, give it a movie, two sequels, record deal, Porsche, etc - Dead Space is getting the royal treatment.

Joystiq:  Remember all those people you treated like crap in Mass Effect?  Well in the upcoming sequel, they'll remember.

Industry Gamers:  Rockstar has no problem saying that a Grand Theft Auto movie would be a stupid idea.  I say anybody interested in one should just watch Gone in Sixty Seconds, Fast and Furious, and The Departed simultaneously.

1UP: Big surprise: Tales of Monkey Island dropped today for the Wii.  Check out Andrew’s review here.

1UP: Amidst all the white noise hubbub surrounding Halo 3: ODST and Halo: Reach, Bungie continues to promise a new IP sometime after 2010.  No word, however, on who can afford to publish it.

Eurogamer: One of the people boycotting Left 4 Dead 2 dreamed up the new “Spitter” zombie-type prior to Valve’s recent announcement of the creature.  Thankfully, he’s admitting it’s probably a coincidence and is confining his complaints to the sequel’s existence, not its content.
