A common complaint of longtime fans of Resident Evil is that recent main series entries have eased up on the survival-horror aspects and focused more on action. Resident Evil: Revelations 2 launches next year and promises to be more horror-based, and Capcom has said in the past that they'll include more survival-horror elements in future games, but it may only be the spin-offs that get that classic, horror treatment. An explanation from Capcom suggests that spin-off games like Revelations 2 will cater to the horror-loving crowd, while main series entries aim for a wider audience. 

Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima has been showcasing Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain at Tokyo Game Show, and in addition to yesterday's plethora of screenshots even more images from the game have been released. The new screenshots reveal a companion for Big Boss, but it's not a human. The Phantom Pain borrows from Call of Duty: Ghosts in assigning a canine partner who, like Big Boss himself, is rocking an eye patch. Aw, they match!

Just last night, the servers for Activision's Destiny and Call Of Duty: Ghosts were reported to be down. This was followed up with tweets from LizardSquad, a newly formed hacking group, claiming the outages to be a result of DDoS attacks performed by them.

In a recent Kotaku interview with Disney Infinity producer John Vignocchi, we learned how they chose which Marvel characters to add to the next game in the series, Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes. Apart from sifting through the huge amount of characters, they also had to consider what would provide balanced gameplay.

"Over 8,000?! That's amazing. So there are over 8,000 Marvel characters to choose from. Obviously everyone knows franchises like Spider-Man and the Avengers, but how did certain individuals like Iron Fist and Nova make the cut for the first wave of heroes?" — Kotaku

The Media Create sales for the past week in Japan have arrived, showing us the top-selling software and hardware. Unsurprisingly, based on yesterday's report, Super Smash Bros. for 3DS is sitting at the top with over 940,000 sales. Nintendo asserts that total sales (digital included) for the first two days exceeded one million. Unfortunately, this provided only a small boost to 3DS hardware, but it still took the number one spot. PlayStation 4 sales more than tripled from the launch of Destiny, which chimed in at number two (and number three) on the charts. Here's the full breakdown.

After several days of rumors and reports, it was officially confirmed yesterday that Minecraft developer Mojang had been purchased by Microsoft for a whopping $2.5 billion. We learned earlier today that this will not affect the sale of the PlayStation, PC, or mobile versions of the game, but Microsoft still expects the deal to become profit positive during fiscal 2015. If so, both sides will be coming out of this deal with a mountain of money. How will Minecraft creator Markus "Notch" Persson spend the cash he's just made? Conan O'Brien gives his humorous take on it in a new video. Check it out after the jump!
