After leaving Capcom, Mega Man co-creator Keiji Inafune and the development team at Comcept began working on a spiritual successor to Mega Man known as Mighty No. 9. It's been over a year since the Kickstarter-funded action-platformer was originally scheduled to release, and we still don't have a concrete release date. Back in January, Mighty No. 9 was delayed for the third time (despite promises that there would be no more delays after the second), this time to a generic "Spring" release window.

Unfortunately, it's looking like Mighty No. 9 may be delayed yet again. Promotional materials for the long-awaited game were spotted at retailer EB Games, and they list a Summer 2016 release window for the game. Comcept has not yet commented on the supposed delay, and they haven't issued any updates on the game's Kickstarter since January.

Fans of Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead comic books and TV shows have been enjoying a more interactive experience for the past four years thanks to Telltale's episodic video game adaptation. Recently, fans have been sinking their teeth into the Michonne miniseries, but they are eagerly anticipating the release of the main series' third season, which Telltale has confirmed for a 2016 release. Now, creator Robert Kirkman has shared some new details on what fans can expect going into Season 3. According to Kirkman, this season will line up more with what's going on in the comics, which means that Clementine will likely be a few years older. Head inside for more.

Microsoft first debuted Xbox 360 on November 22nd, 2005, impressing the industry with its powerful hardware. Microsoft's second console helped propel the Xbox brand to the forefront of gaming, and in the decade since its launch it has sold more than 80 million units. All good things must eventually come to an end, though, and Xbox 360 is no exception.

Microsoft announced today that they are officially discontinuing the console, which means that no more new units will be manufactured and sold. Microsoft will continue to sell the existing inventory of Xbox 360 consoles and games, with availability varying by country. They will also continue to support Xbox live services (including Games with Gold and Deals with Gold) on the console. Thanks for all the great memories over the years, Xbox 360!

Ever since Telltale Games announced the miniseries at The Game Awards last year, fans have been clamoring to play The Walking Dead: Michonne in its entirety; now, with the release of the game's final episode coming next week, they will have the opportunity to do just that.

Telltale has announced that the third and final episode of The Walking Dead: Michonne, titled What We Deserve, will launch on April 26th. They also released a recap video of the previous episode, which you can watch after the jump; it is spoiler-heavy, so you won't want to watch it if you haven't played Episode 2 yet!

The New York Times Magazine recently published a retrospective article about Minecraft, which analyzed the game's massive success and the aspects that led to its wide appeal. Among other things, the article argues that the lack of a tutorial is one of the main reasons that the game sold as much as it did, as it encouraged players to connect to one another and share information about how to play the game.

As part of the article, tons of studies and statistics about the game were cited, including one which claimed that the game still sells about 10,000 copies every single day. The game was released in 2011, has sold over 70 million copies overall, and is still going strong.

The NPD Group has released its report for the month of Month, highlighting sales figures in the United States, including the fact that PlayStation 4 was once again the highest-selling piece of hardware. The NPD Group also tracks software sales, but it must be noted that they only track retail sales, so their report doesn't paint a full picture of the market.

That said, the NPD Group puts The Division as the top game in the US in March. Far Cry: Primal comes in at number two, and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD proved popular at number three. Another Wii U exclusive, Pokkén Tournament, also cracked the top ten at number seven. The rest of the top ten consisted of annual releases and evergreen titles. Overall software revenue for the month was $425.8 million, an increase of 8% over last year. You can check out the top ten by clicking below.

Bandai Namco has announced that they will release arcade classics Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, Galaga, and Dig Dug for the PlayStation Network, Xbox Live, and Steam. They will all be available on April 20th.

The games will all essentially release in their original forms, but newly rendered, and slight tweaks will be made to their audio. Everything else will remain intact.

Video games can be hard enough when played through regularly; however, some people just hunger for some extra layer of challenge. Jon, a member of the YouTube channel Many A True Nerd is one of those people, as he completed Fallout 3 and all its DLC content without healing or dying even once. You read that right: he completed the entire game using just a single health bar, without ever regaining a single hitpoint.

E3 may still be a distant item on your calendar, but companies like Microsoft are already gearing up for one of gaming's biggest events. Even though it's almost two months away, Microsoft has begun sending out press emails reminding everyone that you can tune in and enjoy the show at 9:30 AM PDT on Monday, June 13th. Hopefully having both the Bethesda E3 conference and EA hosting their own conference the day before won't steal Microsoft's steam.

Many recent entries in the once-proud Sonic the Hedgehog franchise have been harshly criticized by fans and reviewers alike, but perhaps no Sonic game (and few games in general) have a worse reputation than Sonic the Hedgehog from 2006. Meant to be a back-to-roots title that celebrated the franchise's 15th anniversary, Sonic 06 was a rushed, buggy mess of a game. It's also the subject of the latest episode of Did You Know Gaming. The new video digs into the history of this infamous title, exploring cut content and character inspirations while giving us some clues as to what went so horribly wrong in development.

Two and a half years after it was fully funded on Kickstarter, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero still doesn't have a release date. However, we do have a rough timetable of when the game will be out, as developer WayForward Technologies has announced that they're aiming to submit the game to Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft, and Valve in July.

The action-platformer is slated to launch on all of the current gen home consoles as well as PC, Vita, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. However, it's looking more and more likely that the last gen versions of the game will be delayed. In a Kickstarter update to fans, WayForward revealed that "only a handful" of backers have requested the game on those platforms, and postponing the last gen launch would allow them to speed up release on all other platforms. The final decision hasn't been made yet, and WayForward is asking backers to email them if switching to another platform isn't an option for them.

It's been a long, long wait for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero. The latest entry in WayForward's popular action-platformer series was successfully funded on Kickstarter way back in October 2013 (with nearly $1 million raised in total), and the original release window of October 2014 has long since passed.

WayForward has been hard at work on the game and its various stretch goals, and they've finally entered into the "crunch time" period with around-the-clock development taking place. In an update to fans, they explained what work they have left to do on the game and laid out a rough timeline for its release. They're hoping to submit the game to Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft, and Valve in July, and the release should follow soon after. You can check out the update by clicking below.

The popular Resident Evil franchise celebrated its 20th anniversary on March 22nd, and Capcom marked the occasion by kicking off a series of developer interview videos. In the first video, Capcom producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi discussed topics like balancing horror and entertainment, emulating horror movies, and the way Resident Evil 4 changed everything.

Capcom's back with a second video, and this time Koji Oda is the star. Oda served as director on Resident Evil 0 and its HD remaster, and he also helped with planning on the original Resident Evil. In his developer interview video, he tackles topics like developing Rebecca and Billy as characters, the differences in style between the classic Resident Evil games and Resident Evil 4, the addition of Wesker Mode, and more.

A new survey completed by IDC and App Annie has revealed just how much mobile is dominating the market these days. 38% of the $85.4 billion spent on the worldwide gaming market in 2015 went to mobile, which earned $34.8 billion. Falling behind mobile at $29 billion were PC and Mac games, followed by console games at $18.5 billion. The last on the list were handheld games, totaling only $3 billion. The survey additionally revealed that the gap mobile gaming has above all other platforms has grown since its initial step into power in 2014.

Whenever news breaks that an MMO's servers are shutting down, the surprise, to me at least, is always that they were still up. Final Fantasy XI, an MMO which saw its initial release back in 2002 and which is part of a series that has since released another MMO (Final Fantasy XIV), is just now beginning to shut down its servers. As of yesterday, March 31st, servers for the game on both PlayStation 2 and Xbox 360 are done for. I don't know if it's sad that they're dying or admirable that they were still even alive.

However, Final Fantasy XI still isn't done for altogether. Square Enix's official word on the matter is that those aforementioned servers are dead, but players on those platforms can still switch over to the PC version, which, I guess, will continue peddling on for a little while. They even have a whole guide set up on how to make the switch.
