So we have new footage of Mighty No. 9‘s early alpha gameplay. The fact that this is early alpha should definitely be kept in mind with this video, as there are many cheaply-made textures, poor animations, and a (subjectively) ugly art style. On the bright side though, the gameplay itself actually looks pretty good, pretty much exactly what you would expect a 3D Mega Man game to look and play like. Certain things like dashing looked like they came straight out of Mega Man X, and that’s sure to please some.

For those that missed other recent news about the game; an animated series is being made, much to the anger of those who donated to the kickstarter. Now, one may think that more things produced through the Kickstarter is a good thing, but the way that many see it is that they donated to have a game made, and money is going toward other things now, which can be viewed as false advertising and fraud. To reassure the people though, Comcept has set new stretch goals for the Kickstarter, saying that only the money raised here will be used for the animated series.

Over the course of nine months, TellTale games has released the five episodes of The Wolf Among Us. Recently the fifth and final episode released to give the conclusion to the mystery that players have been leading Bigby Wolf through all this time.

For those not in the know, The Wolf Among Us is a story-driven point-and-click adventure (similar to The Walking Dead) based on the Fables comic series. The game takes place 20 years before the events of the comics, so in a way it works as kind of a setup for some of the characters and events that happen in the comic series. So how does the game stand up on its own and as a prequel?

The logo for Fox News’ new segment, “Defending the Homeland”, bears a striking resemblance to Bioshock Infinite’s logo. The segment also just happens to be about immigration (likely how it’s ruining America and how we need to close our borders, judging from the title), and let’s keep in mind that Bioshock Infinite was a game about Turn-of-the-century sky racists who treated any non-white person as slaves and secondary citizens. Here at VG Tribune, we do not make political commentary, but do with that what you will.

Sony has released a new update for the PS3 that allows it to sync wirelessly with the Dualshock 4 controller. Before the update, anyone was able to use a Dualshock 4 with a PS3 with a wired USB connection, but now the controller can sync with the console through bluetooth. The only problems still existing with this update are that the sixaxis, vibration, and touchpad still don’t work, so don’t expect to be able to play games like Heavy Rain with your DS4. Otherwise, everything still works just fine and you’ll be able to play using the more modern (and comfortable) controller.

Ken Levine, creator of BioShock made that tweet, along with others yesterday that suggest the BioShock Infinite is going to get new DLC announced today. He said to “check the internets on Tuesday around 8 AM est”, which is strange because that is tomorrow. He then made sense of it by explaining how far away the event is taking place.

All joking aside, many are looking forward to this, and we may see the continuation of BioShock Infinite that we’ve been waiting for.

The Last of Us: American Dreams, which has proven itself to be a great four-part series so far, actually influenced the lore of the game itself, Neil Druckmann (the game’s director) at SDCC this week.

During an interview with GameInformer, Druckmann told how Ellie’s friend Riley Abel was actually created by the co-writer of the graphic novel, Faith Erin Hicks. Riley never actually appeared in the game, but was mentioned at the end. Originally when the development team was making the game, Ellie was alone when she was bitten, but it was changed to fit with the comic. Read more to see what Druckmann had to say about this in his interview.

Enter the Dominatrix was originally intended to be a standalone expansion for Saints Row: The Third, but got scrapped when THQ went bankrupt. Now that Volition is taking care of the series though, it looks like the long-awaited expansion will finally be arriving. The problem that many are having with this news though, is what was told at Comic Con by Steve Jaros, the game’s creative director.

Jaros told fans that while the expansion will get its release, with new content to boot, it will be released 45 days after the initial release of Saints Row IV as paid DLC. People tend to have an issue with DLC being announced before a game is even released because it implies that they could just put it in the game, but are choosing not to because they want more money. In this case, it’s been a bit of a debate between fans though, because it’s not “Day 1 DLC”, a situation in which a publisher releases DLC on the same day as the game it’s for. The fact that it is being released a month and a half later implies that it isn’t done yet, so they’re still working on it.

Either way, I’m glad to see this expansion being released, but I’d have to see the content first to decide if it is worth the money it will cost to buy it. Let’s hope that it was worth the wait.

DuckTales: Remastered was announced a few months ago at PAX East, and now at San Diego Comic-Con Capcom has unveiled more gameplay than was shown in the announcement trailer. Much more. This time, we get nearly a half hour of footage of the Himalayas level, though it has some audio problems that are fixed shortly after they present themselves. The game looks absolutely fantastic, and even has levels play out differently than the original game, as we see rabbits tearing apart the machine that Launchpad McQuack dropped and running off with the pieces.

One of the most noteworthy parts about this is the voice acting. The fact that Capcom got all of the original voice actors on board for this game is wonderful, and it gives us an even better DuckTales experience than the one we had as children on the NES. This game is not simply a graphical update, but a complete remake with new content, and I hope everyone else can agree with me that this is one of the most anticipated Capcom titles announced this year.
