Marginalia 9.30.09


NY Times: Mr. Schiesel enjoyed Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2, but he also saw it's potential to tap into the social/political themes that its source material - The Marvel Civil War - handled so well. Too bad it's just a videogame.

Gamasutra: Storm clouds are gathering, and I want to play games on them. OnLive has ramped up its fund development.

Destructoid: Monster's new energy drink, "Assault": Modern Warfare 2, meet crass commercialism. This may be worse than the time Halo 3 teamed up with Mountain Dew to make Gamer Fuel.

Destructoid: Visceral Games is gearing up to enter production on Dead Space 2. Godspeed, gentlemen.

Joystiq: COME ON! COME ON! COME ON! COME ON! COME ON! COME ON!
