Ask Capcom with Sven episode 1
offers answers from Capcom's Christian Svensson to fan-submitted questions. Along the way he expresses guarded optimism that a PC edition of Super Street Fighter IV
will still happen. Word is: "I've always said the answer is 'no' until it becomes 'yes,' and let’s just say I’ve not given up pushing, and maybe at some point in the future we could change that question to 'Why did it take so long…' instead of 'Why is there no…' Unfortunately, we can’t do that yet, but I’m still cautiously optimistic."

The Elemental War of Magic Website
has further details on Fallen Enchantress
, the recently announced
follow-on to Elemental War of Magic
. In this update Brad Wardell stresses that while Fallen Enchantress will be free to owners of Elemental who purchased the game last year, they actually consider this a new game (thanks Big Download
). Here's a bit on why they are going this route, which also mentions that the eventual third installment in the Elemental series will also be free for those who bought Elemental before October 2010:
There is also another advantage to Fallen Enchantress being its own game rather than an “expansion pack”. And that is, it frees the team to make radical changes to the basics of the game while allowing War of Magic to still be updated on its own source tree. A user of Fallen Enchantress won’t have to have War of Magic to play it and can treat War of Magic as a separate game.
This will be the same case for the third entry in the Elemental world which won’t be out for a long time still (but will be free for people who got War of Magic before the end of October 2010). It’ll be its own game as well not requiring War of Magic and Fallen Enchantress but be available at a sharp discount to those who have the previous entries in the game world.
A new Weapons, Echoes and Anarchy trailer
(NSFW) from Bulletstorm
features Cliff Bleszinski, Tanya Jensen, and John Liberto talking about some of the tools of destruction in People Can Fly's upcoming first-person shooter. They describe the various ways the game's weapons can be used to kill with the styles that the game rewards and the game's multiplayer modes, all maintaining the signature edgy style of the game's promotion. There's also a Skillisode Volume 1 trailer
(thanks Voodoo Extreme
) showing how these stylized kills earn you extra points, and finally Bulletstorm Bulletpoints with Mike Capps Part 2
offers more deep thoughts on the game and dealing with adultery.
The Homefront interview Part 1 on GameZone
talks with THQ's Danny Bilson about Homefront
, the upcoming military-themed shooter set in the USA. One of the main thrusts of part one is comparing the film industry to game development. In part 2 of the interview
Bilson expresses a great deal of confidence in the potential of the Homefront IP, which he thinks will become their best-selling franchise, saying he "absolutely" expects it "to sell more than WWE or UFC."
A new Dead Space 2 Playlist
is now online with a series of "Your Mom Hates Dead Space 2" clips from a commercial campaign for the horror shooter sequel that debuted during yesterday's NFL broadcasts.

revels further in this concept.

There's snow falling in Chicago for the game today, which is awesome. If I had my way snow would be mandatory for all NFL playoff games... if I couldn't outlaw domes, I'd make them all install snow makers.
