    Left 4 Dead 2′s Rocky Road to Release

    The internet has been ablaze with mixed reactions to Valve ever since the announcement of Left 4 Dead 2′s release later this autumn. Fans of the original are up in arms over the fact that they are putting out a sequel only a year after the first. Many believe that Valve will abandon Left 4 Dead, which has turned out to be a very popular staple in the 360 library. “We obviously listen to the community a lot,” said Doug Lombardi. “That’s one of our staples. Did we anticipate it? No, we didn’t, but I think that one of the key things is: announcing Left 4 Dead 2 doesn’t mean we’re abandoning Left 4 Dead 1. “Another thing is it’s important to remember that E3 is where you go to announce new titles, specifically titles that are coming to retail.

    Anime Expo Day 2

    Hi everyone! I’m back from the second day of Anime Expo! I had so much fun that I fell asleep the minute I got home. Even with the kitty ears! Day 2 I sat in panels for Bandai, Moi Dix Mois, and saw Morning Musume concert. I went to check out Japanese Bellydancing, but that was pretty scary so I left. I briefly checked out the Artist Alley. I still haven’t seen most of the expo floor but that’s what Sunday is for! At the Morning Musume concert, they announced the winners to their fan-video contest. Morning Musume created “3 2 1 Breakout” for Anime Expo which you can listen to a sample here. The videos are so awesome! Congrats to all the winners! 3rd place went to an American who was actually at the concert! Her video is here: Morning Musume – 3, 2, 1 BREAKIN’ OUT! OPV The

    Astroids is getting the film treatment

    A favorite arcade game from the past is the latest game to go Hollywood. Universal won a bid to pick up the film rights to the classic Atari video game “Asteroids.” What’s even more surprising is that four studios were in a bidding war on the title. Matthew Lopez is set to write the script. There is no story to Astroids, so the studio will be making this one up from scratch. But Universal doesn’t seem to mind doing that as they own “Battleship” and “Candyland” to make into films. Follow
