Mega Man spiritual successor Mighty No. 9 was a huge hit on Kickstarter, and nearly two years later the game is finally set to launch in September. Or...it was. Unfortunately, it appears that is no longer the case. Some retail listings have been popping up lately suggesting that Mighty No. 9 won't launch until 2016, and Game Informer has confirmed that these listings are accurate.

Developer Keiji Inafune announced that development of Mighty No. 9 was completed in January, and platform selection emails were sent out a month ago, but it appears that we still have a long wait for the game. Game Informer suggests (via input from parent company GameStop) that the generic 2016 placeholder indicates that the listings came directly from either Comcept or publisher Deep Silver, but neither company is available for comment at this time, so we're not sure why the delay is happening. We'll keep you up to date as we learn more.

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.

If you were still on the fence about purchasing the next installment in the WWE 2K franchise, you may want to give this trailer a look, which shows us a pretty amazing reenactment of the bar scene from Terminator 2.

At the end of the trailer, it tells the viewer that you could play as the Terminator when you pre-order WWE 2K16.

Sony revealed a few months ago that they won't be holding a press conference at Gamescom, and until very recently, the official Gamescom website didn't even list them as a show floor exhibitor. That has changed now, as Gamescom has released their show floor layout, and Sony has a huge exhibit that's on par with Microsoft, Activision Blizzard, EA, and Ubisoft. Gamescom attracted over 335,000 people last year, and it's expected to be even bigger this year, so it would have been pretty shocking if Sony had skipped it altogether.

While the first Dragon Quest Heroes has not yet even been released in the West, Square Enix has released some new information on Dragon Quest Heroes II. Just like the first Dragon Quest Heroes game, this installment has a long subtitle, making its full title "Dragon Quest Heroes II: The Twin Kings and the Prophecy of the End."

When Journey was first released on the PlayStation 3 in 2012, it was very well received by the gaming community. This was because it offered an unique, enigmatic, and almost spiritual experience.
