The Daily Hotness: David Cage loves bacon

David Cage isn’t planning on making a sequel to Heavy Rain, because he claims he’s not in the business to make money. That’s probably a good thing, since I doubt that he’s turning a profit anyway. He also thinks that Americans don’t understand his games because of how unique they are. We would probably understand him better if he talked about bacon more. I don’t have any proof that he actually loves bacon, but you probably can’t prove me wrong.

People have made a lot of announcements today. GameStop says that they love consoles, Jon Blow thinks that the current consoles are too old, and we’ve got release dates set for Syndicate, L.A. Noire for PC, and an update for Rusty Hearts. We’ve also got a new episode of Podtoid, a Mash Tactics live show, a review of a speedy hard drive, and previews for Battlefield 3 and Rise of Immortals.
