Disney shut down its entire gaming division back in May, including Disney Infinity. The company has now released an official timeline showcasing the gradual shutdown of Disney Infinity's online services, leading to the complete discontinuation of online functionality on March 3, 2017. The scheduled removal of these online features has already begun, as in-game purchases can no longer be made in the PC, Steam, iOS, Android, and Apple TV versions of Disney Infinity 2.0.

Other developers should envy the longevity of Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac, two games that have consistently stuck around in the zeitgeist for years now. With a number of new ports that have trickled out over the years, both games have consistently popped up in conversation since their release. Now Edmund McMillen, one of two designers behind Super Meat Boy and the creative lead on The Binding of Isaac, is looking to the future by announcing a new platformer. After dropping a teaser on the Binding of Isaac blog, he went on to describe the upcoming game as a "Mega Man / Isaac-like crossover."

Telltale has been creating critically-acclaimed, story-focused adventure games for a while now, but it seems that with their upcoming Batman: The Telltale Series the company will feature a new sort of multiplayer mode. "Crowd Play" was recently announced as a new feature for the Batman series, which will allow other people to help with decisions within the game. Up to 2000 other players can log-in using a special room-code and vote on their pick for a decision in-game, and the host has the option to either pick the majority or choose their own path.

Following a leak on GameFly, last week Nordic Games confirmed that a remastered version of the original Darksiders is in the works for current-gen platforms. For those hoping to get more news soon, you're in luck, as this morning they issued an official announcement of the reworked game, dubbing it "Darksiders Warmastered Edition" and setting its release date for October 25th. Nordic also provided a list of features that the remaster will contain, including 1080p resolution and a target of 60 fps on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, with Wii U targeting 30 fps. Oddly, they didn't mention the online functionality that was hinted at last week, so it seems we might need to wait a bit longer for news on that.

The Resident Evil franchise will be taking on a new form with the launch of Resident Evil VII early next year, and Capcom has been revisiting the classics in the meantime. Resident Evil HD remaster was a success last year, selling over 1 million copies, and Capcom followed it up with an HD remaster of Resident Evil 0 earlier this year.

This has also proven to be a successful venture, as Capcom reports that it has now eclipsed 1.1 million copies worldwide since launch. By comparison, the original Resident Evil 0 on GameCube has sold 1.25 million copies to date since releasing in 2002. Capcom is also planning a full remake (as opposed to a simple remaster) of Resident Evil 2, continuing their trend of dusting off the classics.

Rare was known for pumping out high-quality games in the 1990s and early 2000s, but the company's popularity took a big hit when they were bought out by Microsoft. Since then, many of the key developers from Rare have departed from the company to form their own development studio known as Playtonic Games, and their first project is a Banjo-Kazooie spiritual successor called Yooka-Laylee.

Yooka-Laylee launches next March, but Kickstarter backers who pitched in £20 or more can try it out early. As of today, those backers can download the Toybox, a self-contained, spoiler-free sandbox designed to give Yooka-Laylee backers a taste of the platforming mechanics set to appear in the final game. Backers at the £35 tier or higher will also have access to an enhanced Toybox Plus, but the base Toybox must be downloaded first.

With only a few weeks until release day for No Man's Sky, Hello Games has been releasing more and more information about the game. The company has been posting a series of trailers titled "Explore", "Fight", "Trade", and now "Survive" to focus on the different aspects of the game. The new "Survive" trailer focuses on the extreme environments one can find in-game. While some worlds will be peaceful and resource-rich, others may be filled with radiation, extremely cold, have a toxic atmosphere, or simply be inhabited by dangerous beasts. The trailer also shows that certain items can be equipped and used to counteract these different effects. No Man's Sky comes out on August 9th for PlayStation 4 and August 12th for PC.

Telltale Games arrived at San Diego Comic-Con with new information on the upcoming third season of The Walking Dead, discussing how the game can be enjoyable even if you've not played the previous iterations. This is because a new playable character, Javier Garcia, features alongside fan-favorite Clementine, allowing new players to experience the game with fresh eyes. Franchise veterans who have played through the previous two seasons, however, will still experience a story that has been influenced by their past decisions and naturally have a deeper understanding of certain elements.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse was a smash hit last year, and developer Bandai Namco Entertainment is following it up with a sequel this October. The upcoming game (which draws from all of the different Dragon Ball shows, including the since-retconned Dragon Ball GT and the ongoing Dragon Ball Super) is on display at San Diego Comic-Con 2016, and YouTuber The BGB has uploaded eleven minutes of off-screen battle footage. The video showcases fights between Goku and Trunks, Super Saiyan Gogeta and Janemba, GT Goku and Time Patroller, Goku and Turles. You can check it out by clicking below!

South Park: The Stick of Truth was a big success back in 2014, and South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have teamed up with Ubisoft once again for a sequel. South Park: The Fractured But Whole features many of the RPG elements from its predecessor, but adds in more strategy and trades out wizards and knights for superheroes.

The official PlayStation YouTube channel has released a new behind the scenes video for the game, giving us a look at the development process. Near the end, Parker and Stone reveal that they had originally intended to call the game "South Park: The Butthole of Time," but they were told that retailers wouldn't advertise a game with "butthole" in the title. Trey Parker was determined to keep the word in somehow, and "Fractured But Whole" was settled on as a replacement. You can check out the video by clicking below!

Last week, a YouTuber known as Limit Breakers uploaded a video demonstrating a bizarre texture pack that he created for Dark Souls III. For some reason, the pack replaces every single texture in the entire game with various pictures of crabs. Every single object in the game is affected, including the sky, which is now blood red and covered in faint outlines of crab-shaped clouds. As you may imagine, this makes Dark Souls III look hilariously revolting.
