Earlier this month, Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune and his team at Comcept unveiled Red Ash: The Indelible Legend. Inafune had incredible success using Kickstarter for Mighty No. 9, but things haven't been going so well with his latest game. With just four days left to go, Kickstarter funding is only slightly above half of the goal, but the Mega Man Legends-inspired adventure isn't being cancelled.

The Red Ash team has announced that they've struck a deal with Chinese digital entertainment company Fuze. Fuze will be funding the prologue chapter, The KalKanon Incident, but Comcept will be allowed to retain rights to the IP. Funds from Kickstarter (if the goal is met and the funds can be kept by Comcept) will go towards additional content and future stretch goals. Are you happy with this outcome?

In just three weeks, Rocket League has been downloaded by over five million players. Since the game's July 7th launch, Rocket League has exploded in popularity on the internet. To make soccer interesting, it only needed a heaping helping of demolition derbies. The game has doubled the sales of its predecessor, Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, and there's no sign of stopping due to the game's promotion on PS4, involving a free download for PS Plus subscribers. About 4.5 million downloads came from the PlayStation 4, leaving about 500,000 downloads on PC. Rocket League is still free for PS Plus members until August 4th.

Rise of the Tomb Raider got quite a lot of buzz at E3 this year, but only Xbox One owners will be able to play the game come this holiday season.

Randy Pitchford, the CEO of Gearbox Software, continues to stay in the hot seat regarding Aliens: Colonial Marines. After numerous references to the game's controversy in speeches – including one in which he called some gamers "sadists" – and a statement released to IGN, Pitchford has been interviewed by Eurogamer. The results continue Pitchford's technique of running in circles. However, this time the denials are far more blunt and almost laughable at times.

Speaking with The Verge, Xbox boss Phil Spencer revealed that Microsoft is working on PC to Xbox One streaming as well, but there are a few obstacles in the way.

Bethesda has said that they cannot make any more Fallout 4: Pip-Boy Edition Pip-Boy units, despite repeated manufacturing runs. The manufacturers responsible for creating the units, which can incorporate a smartphone, simply cannot fit any more production runs into their schedules, meaning that if you haven't already secured one of the bundles, you won't be able to acquire a Pip-Boy.

The release of Windows 10 is just around the corner, and one of the announced features of the new operating system is the ability to stream games from an Xbox One to a device running Windows 10. Recently, a fan on Twitter asked Microsoft's Phil Spencer whether or not streaming in the opposite manner — from a Windows 10 device to Xbox One — would also be possible. Spencer replied that while he liked the idea, there were no plans for this at the moment. He added that this concept would, of course, require keyboard and mouse functionality on Xbox One and stated that support for that input method will be coming to the platform before long.
