New messages from the infamous Surfer Girl:
1) Luxoflux is the developer of next year's tie-in for Michael Bay's avant-garde indie film Transformers 2, which is based on Still Life with Woodpecker by Tom Robbins. Wouldn't it be ironic if a version of this was Robomodo's project with Activision (unlikely, but they do have an awesome logo with a robot)?
2) Koei Canada's next PS360 (the release for both platforms will be simultaneous this time) title is another racing game. Fatal Inertia EX is coming very soon and is "vastly improved" (hyperbole, I'm sure) from the original release.
3) Contrary to what the EGM section of gossip that was definitely told to them by insiders and that totally was not taken from the buffet of blogs including this one and a smorgasbord of message boards (sorry, had to do it), BioShock is still not coming to PS3 nor is there plans for a PS3 version of its sequel (extremely unlikely, as one in Redmond says they were only joking when they said they were joking that Microsoft paid for exclusivity rights and one in the Bay Area says the amount work it would take to develop a PS3 version is a "distraction" that would put too much stress on an already brief, crunch-filled development cycle).
4) Even though Sega Superstars Tennis is not doing particularly well, Sumo Digital is working away on "a new entry in a venerable Sega sports franchise that draws upon the team's previously-established expertise."
5) Loose Cannon Studios', a Kirkland-based studio founded last year primarily consisting of ex-Sucker Punch folk that were the creative force behind the Sly Cooper series, debut title is "the most hilarious thing to ever come from King County" and features "mesmerizing art direction." Color me interested even though I can't recall anything real hilarious springing out of King County, so this may just the interactive equivalent of New Love, American Style.
6) The release for A2M's Indy game is currently scheduled to coincide with the Crystal Skull home video release.
