Joe and I just got back from Germany, where we went to the Echo Awards (the German Grammys), and did a bunch of press for our upcoming Facebook video game, called RECHARGE. Good to see our friends and team out there, and great to hang with the awesome Til Schweiger, who has been a great supporter of LP.

I tried a little German on stage, which was fun. I don't actually speak German, but people tell me that, for those who speak English, German is one of the "easier" languages to learn because there are a lot of similarities in sentence structure, etc. I'm not so sure about that...I had to practice the hell out of that speech in order to make it sound anything like German.

For those interested in our upcoming game, it's called RECHARGE. It's still in development, and we're making improvements all the time. But we hope to have it ready by the middle of the year, maybe late summer. It all depends on how the testing goes, and how long it takes to handle all the challenges and changes presented in testing. A big thank you to everyone who is testing the game and telling us what's good, what's bad, and what's not working.

Germany really loves Linkin Park. I am from Germany, and I only watched this show for you guys. Congratulations! You really deserve the Echo! And you talking German is probably one of the most adorable things I've ever heard... :-)
Hope to hear you speak German on a German concert!!!! You did very well :-)

Oh my gosh,  I want to play RECHARGE so badly. I've been writing a story based off of it for 2 MONTHS!! And my story is pretty accurate in the game plot! I called the zombie-robots Hybrids before 'Hybrids' was even confirmed.

Parabéns a banda e a toda equipe PL pelo reconhecimento, merecida conquista!

Estou louco para jogar! :D

A história do jogo parece ser bem interessante. Cara, vocês são demais.

Sou muito fã da banda e de cada integrante, fiquei triste em não poder ir no show aqui no Brasil. Mas não medirei esforços para ir na próxima vez.

Grande abraço do seu amigo brasileiro, Cleiton Aquino :D
