Developer Gears for Breakfast has just announced that the beta build of their upcoming game A Hat in Time should be releasing next weekend.

The game's alpha release is currently available; however, on March 7th the developer is hoping to release a new beta build of the game on Steam with all sorts of new content. For those that already have the alpha build, your game will be upgraded to the beta on March 7th; everyone else will get a Steam download code in their Kickstarter or Humble Bundle email.

Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number has finally been confirmed for a March 10th release date.

After a cryptic phone number posted by the game's developer last month featuring a Miami area code, a "Wrong Number" message, and a heavy, yet blurry, focus on the word "March", it has been revealed that this is indeed the correct date.

The upcoming "top-down neon f***-em-up" is set for a release on PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PS Vita for the price of $14.99. With pre-orders available on Steam, Humble, and GOG, you'll be able to save 10% via pre-order.

Axiom Verge is a Metroid-inspired, exploration-fueled action platformer that indie developer Tom Happ has been working on for five years now, and the sci-fi adventure is almost ready to launch.

Josh Peters, streamer of RuneScape, was the unfortunate target of swatting earlier this month. He has since posted a response to his YouTube channel, and is equal parts saddening and enraging. For those who have managed to avoid the term, swatting is the act of calling a police department to have them send an armed response team to someone's house. SWAT teams can break down doors, are armed to the teeth, and are not trained to be especially hospitable, to put it as mildly as physically possible. It is reprehensible, it is scarring and dangerous for those targeted—as well as their families, and, though under different names depending on where you live, it is entirely illegal. Peter's rightful distress stemmed primarily from the danger the incident put his ten-year-old brother in, with ten armed officers threatening him as soon as he had opened the front door.

Nicolas Cage has entered the realm of obscure dating sims in the fan-made game Caging Me Softly. The game was created by deviantArt user Angequilla, and it is every bit as weird and creepy as you would expect, with roughly four minutes of gameplay and one quick conversation with the man himself. During the conversation, you must describe Nicolas' face, and your description will determine your ending.

Caging Me Softly isn't a great game, but is on par with some of his more recent films. You can download the game by clicking here.

According to Arkham Knight developer Rocksteady Studios, the game will be rated "M for Mature" by the ESRB. Both of the studio's previous efforts, Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, were rated "T for Teen". Rocksteady founder Sefton Hill was surprised by this because the team was not aiming for an "M" rating.

"From our point of view, we never wrote it or made it with a rating in mind. We never did that in the previous two games... We just felt that this is the story that we really wanted to tell." — Sefton Hill

That's right. The Zoombinis are back. The Logical Journey of the Zoombinis, an educational game from the year 1996 made by Broderbund, was played by many kids back in the day, myself included. Since then, it's gained a bit of a cult following. Now, The Learning Company is ready to bring the blue balls back in an all new remake of their first outing.

The remake, simply titled Zoombinis, is on Kickstarter and has already achieved its goal of $50,000. There are twenty-eight days left. It's going to be wonderful.

According to series producer Akihiro Suzuki, Dynasty Warriors 9 will see a complete revamp of the core gameplay system. In an interview with PlayStation Universe, Suzuki was asked how he plans to keep the series fresh going forward.

"So obviously we reached DW8 now at this stage, and, ah, Suzuki-san himself personally feels that it’s reached that stage where it’s a good time to sort of look back, and see, you know, what the different options are in the future there." — Akihiro Suzuki (via translator)
