Last week, a YouTuber known as Limit Breakers uploaded a video demonstrating a bizarre texture pack that he created for Dark Souls III. For some reason, the pack replaces every single texture in the entire game with various pictures of crabs. Every single object in the game is affected, including the sky, which is now blood red and covered in faint outlines of crab-shaped clouds. As you may imagine, this makes Dark Souls III look hilariously revolting.

Update: Hello Games has now commented on this news, calling it a "non-story" and stating that No Man's Sky does not make use of the Superformula. You can see their Tweets after the jump!

Original: No Man's Sky is coming out in a couple of weeks, on August 9th in North America and August 10th in Europe, but trouble might be brewing on that endless horizon. This is because the Dutch company called Genicap is claiming that developer Hello Games is using their formula without permission. The formula in question is called the "Superformula" and is supposed to be the one that allows No Man's Sky to generate the near-endless amounts of planets for players to explore.

The Harvest Moon inspired indie game Stardew Valley has sold well over one million copies and is coming to consoles at the end of the year. The game launched as a Windows PC-exclusive in February, but the game's developer just announced that it will be coming to Mac and Linux on July 29th.

The game is also getting a major update soon, which will introduce an online co-op mode, new crops, new farm buildings, more secrets, bug fixes, and more "small, fun touches to the world." Although there is no set date for the 1.1 update, hopefully it will be in time for the Mac and Linux release.

Sonic Mania was revealed to the world last night as SEGA's love letter to the classic 2D era of Sonic the Hedgehog. With developmental oversight from SEGA of America, the game is produced by Christian Whitehead and Headcannon—renowned for their mobile remasters of the original Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic 2, and Sonic CD—as well as PagodaWest Games, the indie studio behind Major Magnet.

While it's not due for release until Spring 2017, those who attended the Sonic 25th Anniversary Party had the opportunity to try Mania out early. The demo featured the familiar Green Hill Zone longtime fans know and love, as well as a wholly original stage with the downtown Studiopolis Zone.

They, like Psyonix, are just waiting for Sony's approval to implement it.

Red Bull told The Guardian that "Matilda was an extraordinary athlete, traveling the world to find her passion, ride steep terrain, and share her bright smile."

Last week, Blizzard revealed the newest character to the Overwatch lineup: Ana, a new support character with ranged healing and sniping abilities. Shortly after the announcement, Ana was made available on the PC beta version for testing, but she is now available on PC in the release version of the game in patch 1.1.0.1. From players' feedback so far, she definitely deserves her level three difficulty rating, as close-up attacks are hard to counter but Ana can still be an incredible asset to the team.

This same patch adds several other major changes to the game, primarily a huge buff for Zenyata, the other ranged healer, and other various changes to make the game more fun to play. There is no current word on the console release, but Blizzard has reportedly been making an effort to bring PC and console updates into sync.

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!

If you have been a fan of Killer Instinct since the very beginning in 1994, then you might recognize Killer Instinct Season 3's newest and final DLC character. Eyedol is a two-headed (or, I guess one head split in half?) demon known for giving players all sorts of trouble in the original game as an end-game boss. While Eyedol was originally a joke character, parodying Blanka's story from Street Fighter 2, he is back with his own tale, and you don't even have to enter a ridiculous cheat code to play as him.
