Aliens: Colonial Marines was the subject of much controversy, as the finished game represented a substantial downgrade from previous trailers and demo footage. The discrepancies sparked a class-action lawsuit against both developer Gearbox Software and publisher SEGA. Gearbox formally requested that they be dropped from the suit, placing the blame squarely on SEGA's shoulders, and SEGA in turn pointed a blaming finger at Gearbox. Hit the jump for more on this case. 

PlayStation 4 and Xbox One have been on the market for a year and a half now, and we've seen some pretty impressive feats of game development that could not have been accomplished on last generation's consoles, but the best is yet to come. Sony recently stated that their upcoming E3 lineup will "take a lot more advantage" of the new hardware than any of the games we've seen thus far, and Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick also believes there is much untapped potential, stating that we haven't remotely seen what these consoles can do.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night's Kickstarter continues to sail along at a solid pace, and therefore more updates have appeared. Igarashi and crew announce this time that the game's localizations have far exceeded expectations, and the game will be playable in English, Japanese, German, French, Spanish, and Italian, and will feature full English and Japanese voice acting. Players will be able to pick their audio language of choice at the beginning (and hopefully change their minds should they decided to try both out).

Alucard also made an appearance. At least, his voice did. More after the jump.

Kickstarter smash success and Banjo-Kazooie spiritual successor Yooka-Laylee features game worlds contained within books that can be expanded by collecting pages, and the book mechanic is reflected in other ways as well. Indie developer Playtonic Games has revealed a group of new characters called the Ghost Writers. During their days in the corporeal world, they were the authors of the book worlds of Yooka-Laylee, but in death their souls are doomed to haunt the very worlds they created. Hit the jump for all the details! 

A new Need for Speed was recently unveiled by EA and Ghost Games with a full reveal planned for E3. Ahead of their press conference, EA has announced via the game's official Twitter page that the upcoming racer will require an online connection. This requirement, EA says, brings nice benefits like "more variety and a more rewarding experience with friends." We'll likely find out more on these benefits at E3.

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End was slated to be PlayStation 4's big holiday title, but Naughty Dog unfortunately needed more time to polish the game and had to delay it into 2016. The good news is, that delay won't be for too long. During a recent investors briefing, Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Andrew House listed A Thief's End as part of the company's financial forecast for the fiscal year ending March 31st, 2016. In other words, Naughty Dog's upcoming adventure will launch sometime between January 1st, 2016 and March 31st, 2016.

Studio co-founder Vince Zampella has announced via Twitter that Respawn will not be showing off anything at E3.

As mobile devices become more prevalent in society and in the gaming industry, many games interact with apps. Both Assassin's Creed Unity and Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag had companion apps, but Ubisoft has announced that Assassin's Creed Syndicate will not. This decision was made because the development team wanted to "focus all their efforts on the core experience." Are you happy with this change, or did you enjoy the companion apps for the previous two games?

If you were hoping to grab a copy of Mortal Kombat X for the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, you may have to wait a bit longer.

Square Enix recently met with investors for a financial briefing, and this meeting included a look at the upcoming launch schedule. As part of the financial forecast, Square Enix listed games that will be contributing to revenue in this fiscal year (April 1st, 2015 through March 31st, 2016), and Final Fantasy XV was not among the listed games. It's been nearly a decade since the game began development (under a different title), but it looks like the wait is going to be a little longer. Unsurprisingly, Kingdom Hearts III was also absent from the current fiscal year's launch schedule.

Legendary Castlevania developer Koji Igarashi recently launched a spiritual successor on Kickstarter. Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has been a massive success, smashing stretch goal after stretch goal as it inches closer to $3 million in funding. However, the game will also be receiving some help from a publisher.

Koch Media, the parent company that owns publisher Deep Silver, has trademarked Bloodstained in both the United States and Europe, suggesting that they own the IP. This isn't too surprising, as Mighty No. 9's success is part of why Igarashi took to Kickstarter in the first place, and Mighty No. 9 is also being published by Deep Silver.
