Electronic Gaming Monthly‘s long-standing tradition of the “Quartermann” monthly rumors column has has its share of hits, and as many misses. But each and every month, it’s the first page I flip to when I receive my new issue. I just love juicy rumors and gossip. Hell, I write for a blog.
According to 1UP, this month’s batch of rumors really aren’t very shocking. Take God of War 3, for instance — “rumor” has it that SCEA Santa Monica are already working on the upcoming PlayStation 3 title, which is set to hit next holiday. Or Gears of War 2, another title that Epic Games are “rumored” to be working on, which is also scheduled to ship next holiday.
I don’t know when the obvious truths started flying as rumors, but we’ll roll with ’em. The random rumor of month, however, seems to be a sequel to Sega’s sky-pirate role-playing game, Skies of Arcadia. This game didn’t really fly off of the shelves, but sure — why not?
When the new issue of EGM (along with a Ninja Gaiden 2 cover story) hits newsstands this month, perhaps these rumors will look juicier in print than they do on the Internet.
