Marginalia: 7.28.09

Crispy Gamer:  A detailed account of the recent Professor Layton Twitter Madness.  Long story short: some dude set up a Layton feed, people thought it was viral-marketing from Nintendo, he got caught, people were upset I guess?

Eurogamer: So…zombies in Left 4 Dead 2 may be wearing Depeche Mode t-shirts.

GameDaily:  Gaming is a low-turnover market?  Big surprise there. 

Joystiq: Germans really videogames.  How much, you say?  Enough to take civil action.

Joystiq: Portions of Midway’s tattered remains have been assimilated by Warner Bros., congealing into some new studio called WB Games.

Wired: The director of the original Saw may end up helming a Castlevania movie.  Why am I surprised when stuff like this comes up?
