- Blizzard will try to bring out content faster now that subscriptions have gone down 600k in the last months
Not suprising, as leveling up to 85 plus raids didn't takemmuch time. I just want to see the content promised in the artbook/past.
- First reviews of Brink are out, GameInformer and ArsTechnica refuse to do it till they get patched copies/versions that consumers got. The average is around 80% with Joystick "Ugh!" and 1Up sticking out as usual with low scores.
Will play it myself this weekend, loved the demo from last Gamescon in 2010.

PSN doesn't even have X-game chat, while XBL advances to Skype, Sony will surely lose a lot of faithful customers this month.
No wonder Capcom is trying to rip off his clients with not a single franchise/IP having not some kind of extended version. Must be a lot cheaper to release DLC instead of sequels year after year.
What takes them so long to release SFvsT... is Namco stalling them for their own version?
- Soul Calibur V has been enounced, it will take place 17 years after IV, meaning many new characters. Patroklos, Sophitia’s son will be the lead character.
As long as Yoshimutsu and some other favorites stay and we get a nice story/quest mode, welcome!
- A fantastic looking trailer has been released for the 3D CG movie Tekken Blood Vengeance, which will be in theaters this summer.
- Two dozen of screenshots for Tekken Tag Tournament 2 are available on Adriasang.
- While Tales of Graces F has been enounced to come out in 2012, Tales of Abyss has been confirmed for a Europe release.
- NeoGAF user Cheesemeister made a round-up of the current Project Cafe rumors with a Eternal Darkness sequel being developed for it by Retro.

The debut trailer is up now.
Dark Souls will have a limited edition, which includes an art book, mini-strategy guidebook, the game’s soundtrack via a digital download, and a making of Dark Souls video in a metal case.
I don't want it to be a metal case... got to be like the normal european one for Demon Souls, which was the "special edition"^^ But the shiny one for Yakiza 4 wasn't bad even though the fucked up the cover with a axisymmetrical design of a dragon.
I'm glad that Namco Bandai decided to release a LE that is similar to Atlus's.
Joystiq has a pic of the LE. It looks really nice though I don't know if the metal box design and the box art is official or not.
Kotaku also has a preview of the game as well.
Oh yeah, I almost forgot - it looks like Modern Warfare 3 will be announced soon. Of course, it's just rumor for now.

From 20th to 24th of September, the IESMOD 2011 WORLD CHALLENGE will take place, on Jeju, South Korea.
The special thing about this event is, that it is an eSports event for handicapped people. At least 22 nations will participate, probably more will follow. There will be both eSports events and actual sports events, as well as jazz concerts and such side shows.
eSports disciplines: StarCraft 2, Warcraft 3, CS Online, FIFA Online und KartRider.
Amongst the intending players two very famous people will be:
Lee Min Seok, a Korean Starcraft player, who is famous because he is playing Starcraft:Broodwar even though he is blind! Here you can see him playing a show match against the Starcraft legend himself, SlayerSBoxer (Lim Yo-Hwan): http://www.56.com/u28/v_MTU2NTQwNzM.html
Boxer is blindfolded himself for the start, but takes it off later.
Park Sueng "Go)Space" Hyun: He is suffering from an extreme irreversible muscle disorder severely handicapping him. He can barely use mouse and keyboard, but also only to a limited amount (for example, he is not able to bind unit groups, which is done by pressing ctrl and a number button at the same time).
Nonetheless, he became one of the top international Warcraft 3 players and was very successful.

Fairly interesting stuff. If that is true then I would actually be surprised about there being other sentient creatures besides kerrigan within the zerg. I always thought that before kerrigan the sole sentient creatures were the overmind and celebrates and with the demise of the overmind and the eventual slaughter of the celebrates it was kerrigan who was the sole consciousness behind the zerg. I guess this makes things more interesting plotwise as the zerg could be a bit more than ferral creatures with a puppetmaster in this scenario. I am still curious as for how the deinfestation affected kerrigan's personality, I thought that particular event would lead to her regressing a bit towards her older personality.
