Marginalia: 8.21.09

Please insert the next disc. Shacknews: Disc-switching abounds!  It looks like the 360 version of id’s apocalyptic FPS Rage may require multiple DVDs to account for the multiplayer component.

CO-OP: The most recent episode of CO-OP includes an interview with Facebook’s director of games.  Apparently people are making money off Facebook games.

Gamasutra: So GameStop’s definition of “having a weak summer” is posting its second-highest Q2 profit ever.  Stop your whining, Scrooge McDuck.

Destructoid: Chet Faliszek of the Left 4 Dead team claims that the upcoming DLC Crash Course was originally slated to drop before E3, which probably would’ve headed off all this sequel boycott nonsense.  Oops!

1UP: I wish I could just grab Harmonix by the collar and not let go until it convinces me why we need another iteration of Rock Band.

Destructoid: PopCap has officially announced Plants vs. Zombies for XBLA and iPhone.  Genius.
