Recently on Offworld, this weekend’s Penny Arcade Expo opening has brought with it a tidal wave of new game details and announcements: Ubisoft crosses Splinter Cell with Keyboard Cat, Grasshopper’s No More Heroes 2 goes 8-bit (on purpose), 2K reveals BioShock 2‘s multiplayer in motion, Monkey Island creator Ron Gilbert’s DeathSpank gets its debut trailer, and Valve show off Left 4 Dead 2‘s undead clown-inhabited Dark Carnival.

Elsewhere, we saw Vectorpark’s brilliantly serene Flash toys Levers and Acrobots come to the iPhone, Crappy Cat creator VanBeater lend his talents for the iPhone’s Bear on a Wire, Farbs (aka. the guy who quit his job via Super Mario Bros.) teases his fantastic space shooter Captain Forever, and Capcom/Clover’s gorgeously ukiyo-e inspired Wii/PS2 game Okami get a new sequel for the DS.

Finally, we got an accidental look into the sex lives of NES programmers via hidden messages in ROMs, covered our eyes for Kurt Cobain’s shockingly awful/disrespectful appearance in Guitar Hero 5, and got a post-mortem on Guitar Hero typography, and our ‘one shots': India gets Invaded, and Dance Dance American Revolution meets Dance Dance Industrial Revolution.
