Kickstarter project Mighty No. 9 generated an incredible amount of hype (and funding) three years ago, but a long wait made longer by multiple delays (when the base game was said to be complete over a year ago) has left a bad taste in the mouth of fans and backers. Unfortunately, faith in the game waned even further when publisher Deep Silver released a new trailer full of cheesy dialogue, bad jokes, and unconvincing explosions.

It looks like potential customers aren't the only ones disappointed with the new trailer, as Inti Creates CEO Takuya Aizu has taken to Twitter to criticize it. Inti Creates co-developed the game with Comcept (director Keiji Inafune's team), but Deep Silver is publishing, and that apparently includes handling the trailers. After watching the trailer, Aizu tweeted out that it was "crappy" and "unforgivable," specifically calling out Deep Silver. Hopefully this means that the trailer isn't representative of the spirit of the actual game.

Minecraft is the ultimate sandbox game, and many fans have taken advantage of that freedom and the game's vast arsenal of assets to create mini games and competitive events. Microsoft has been paying attention to the creative ideas that the Minecraft community has spawned, and they've decided to join in on the fun and make it official.

Microsoft announced today that they are going to start rolling out new mini games on the console versions of Minecraft, giving players the ability to enjoy "competitions with tailor-made rulesets, so you can have fun straight away without having to fuss around with manual count-downs, laboriously prep loot chests or keep score." The first new mode on the way is called Battle, and it will be available sometime next month. You can check out 20 minutes of footage and more details by clicking below!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens was one of the biggest movies in the world last year, and soon it will be the latest in the lineup of popular LEGO video games. Releasing on June 28th, LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens lends the constructive fun of LEGOs to the iconic characters and settings of Star Wars, and it will even include new story information that wasn't in the movie! Warner Bros. recently kicked off a new series of character vignettes with a video that starred Poe Dameron, and today they're back with a new video that focuses on Stormtrooper-turned-rebel Finn. You can check it out by clicking below!

It's been a long time in the making with multiple delays along the way, but Mighty No. 9 finally has a (hopefully) concrete release date of July 21st. Developed by Mega Man co-creator Keiji Inafune and his team at Comcept, Mighty No. 9 aims to be a worthy spiritual successor to the Blue Bomber's series. Ahead of its release next month, publisher Deep Silver has released a new "Masterclass" trailer that focuses on the game's dash mechanics, combos, and upgrade system.

E3 is fast approaching, and it seems every company is doing their own spin on the event; Nintendo will be hosting an all-day Zelda U livestream, while Activision has decided against having a booth on the show floor. And when the folks at Microsoft announced their E3 conference earlier this month, they also mentioned that there would be a repeat of last year's Xbox FanFest.

Just like last year, only 500 fans will be granted tickets to the event, and you can find out how to become one of those 500 by clicking below!

Before Metal Gear Solid V was released, Hideo Kojima talked about a mission editor which never came to fruition. A fan by the name of Saladin on MGSForums.com recently discovered a level editor that was hidden in MGS V's code, which could be the level editor that Kojima had teased before.
