In June, it was confirmed that Sonic the Hedgehog would be crossing over into TT Games' LEGO Dimensions, complete with his own blocky toy. No release date was formally given for his Level Pack at the time, which would also contain toys of the Tornado biplane and his car from Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, but at tonight's Sonic 25th Anniversary Party, fans were given their first look at a LEGOfied Sonic universe.

SEGA's iconic Blue Blur will be dashing through the likes of Gotham City, the Land of Ooo, and the TARDIS—as well as familiar locales such as Green Hill Zone and Emerald Coast—in the fall. Check out the trailer after the jump!

One of the biggest surprise hits of last year was Dontnod Entertainment's episodic game, Life is Strange. The story-driven graphic adventure grew more popular with the release of each new chapter, drawing in almost universal praise from critics and selling over one million copies. If you still haven't experienced this fantastic game yet, you'll be able to try it out for free very soon. Starting tomorrow, the first episode of Life is Strange (titled Chrysalis) will be available for free on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Mac and PC. In the meantime, you can check out a new trailer by clicking below!

Just a few days ago, we learned that Batman: The Telltale Series would get a digital launch sometime in August, while a physical release is coming in September. Now Telltale has announced that the actual date of the digital release for the first episode, titled "Realm of Shadows," will be August 2nd, just two weeks from today! In addition to the announcement, Telltale has given us a new trailer for the game, providing our first look at Bruce Wayne's newest adventure. In addition to teasing some of the choices Batman will encounter, it also shows several more characters, such as Harvey Dent, Vicki Vale, Falcone, Alfred, and Catwoman.

It's been months since the unique, story-driven Minecraft: Story Mode first launched, but just as the main story was wrapping up, Telltale Games announced an additional three DLC chapters for the game would be coming out over the summer. We got Episode 6 back in June, and now they have revealed that the next chapter, Episode 7, will be launching on July 26th. Titled "Access Denied," this next storyline brings our heroes to a world controlled by the evil "thinking machine" PAMA, which wishes to create a portal that will allow it to seize control of all other worlds. It's up to Jesse and the others to save this world and prevent PAMA's influence from spreading.

Warner Bros. and Telltale Games have finally revealed that they are releasing the digital version of the first episode of Batman: The Telltale Series this August on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Android, iOS, and PC.

The disc on the retail version will include the first episode, and allows owners to download the other four episodes when they come out.

Update: The text of this post has been updated to better reflect that Warner Bros. was the group required to provided disclosure, while the YouTubers involved were not (and some, such as PewDiePie, actually did so anyway in their video descriptions).

A while ago, several popular YouTubers made videos about the game Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. What many of them failed to disclose, however, was that producer Warner Bros. paid them to do so—and Warner Bros. said nothing about it either. Because they got paid, the YouTubers had to adhere to some rules: they couldn't say anything negative about the game or Warner Bros., they had to link to the game's website, and they had to verbally encourage their viewers to actually click on that link. These videos garnered over 5.5 million views, with over 3.7 million coming from PewDiePie alone, but Warner Bros.' failure to disclose the sponsorship of YouTubers got the company in trouble with the Federal Trade Commission. Fortunately for the producer, both parties have reached a settlement now.

According to Famitsu, Capcom is selling a replica of Leon's leather jacket from Resident Evil 4 for the steep price of ¥120,000, or about $1,200 (not including tax). The jacket will be released for the public on November 24, 2016, to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Resident Evil franchise. It's described by Famitsu as a B-6 bomber jacket, with a tough exterior made of genuine sheep leather and a soft wool lining, and comes in sizes ranging from Medium to Extra Large.

This jacket is an extremely high-end version of an almost identical coat that Capcom sold in 2009, which was made of fake leather and had a price of $287 (it is now selling for less than $70 on eBay). Follow after the jump for more information!

Microsoft held its annual E3 Media Briefing last month, unveiling the new Xbox One S, the upcoming Project Scorpio, the Xbox Play Anywhere program, custom controllers, and lots of exciting new games. This year's show proved to be quite popular with fans, as Microsoft has written a blog declaring it their most viewed live event to date. The E3 Media Briefing itself was viewed over 6.6 million times, and the Xbox YouTube channel as a whole pulled in 27 million views during E3! Click below for more Xbox stats.

The saying "How the mighty hath fallen" might fit no better game than the appropriately titled Mighty No. 9. What began as Keiji Inafune's passion project on Kickstarter soon became crushed by a four million dollar budget stretched too thin between several platforms, numerous delays, a questionable ad campaign, and a mediocre critical reception, among other factors.

Consequently, it can also be said that all comedy is derived from fear, or dismay in the case of the many backers who pledged to Mighty No. 9. Smosh Games steps up to this task with another one of their satirical Honest Game Trailers, this time tackling Comcept's spiritual successor to Capcom's Mega Man. Check it out after the jump!

Update: Publisher Deep Silver responded via The Mega Man Network, saying, "there are currently no plans to sell the Kickstarter backer DLC items for Mighty No. 9," suggesting that the Microsoft listings were made in error.

Red Dead Redemption is often lauded as one of the best games of the last generation, so it's no surprise that fans have been asking Microsoft to make it a backwards compatible title for Xbox One ever since the BC program was announced. Fortunately, it looks like those fans are finally getting their wish. Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb sent out a tweet this morning officially confirming that Rockstar Games' enormous adventure is coming to Xbox One this Friday, July 8th.

Dark Souls is notorious for its harsh difficulty, but that hasn't stopped the most extreme players from running head-on into challenge before. Just last February, one player beat the first game in the series without taking any damage, a feat which its Director couldn't even believe. But now someone has accomplished something similar in Dark Souls III.

Faraaz Khan took on Dark Souls III with several self-imposed limitations, including no shield and no ranged combat. Head inside to see more!

It's an important year for Sonic the Hedgehog.
