Yesterday, the website for 2K Games briefly listed the highly-anticipated BioShock: The Collection, adding fuel to a fire that's been burning for nearly a year. Today, however, 2K Games has officially revealed BioShock: The Collection. The console versions contain all single-player content released for the three BioShock games (sorry, fans of BioShock 2's multiplayer), while the PC version will leave out BioShock Infinite because it "already meets current-gen console standards and runs smoothly on high visual settings." It also includes a never-before-seen director's commentary video from Ken Levine and Shawn Robertson, entitled "Imagining BioShock". BioShock: The Collection also will run in 1080p and 60fps across all platforms.

BioShock: The Collection will sell for $59.99 upon launch. You'll be able to return to Rapture and Columbia on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC this September 13th for North America, September 15th for Australia, and September 16th everywhere else.

The Game Critics Awards is an association made up of forty online video game publications that band together annually to give awards to the best games shown off at E3 every year. This year, the Game Critics Awards are dividing their awards into 16 different categories, such as "Best Console Game," "Best Independent Game," and "Best RPG," with around four to five nominees for one award in each category. A few days ago, the association revealed this year's nominees for the awards. This breakdown shows that Battlefield 1 has the largest amount of nominations, as the game received a nomination in five separate categories (including Game of the Show). Battlefield was closely followed by Dishonored 2 and Horizon Zero Dawn, which received four nominations apiece.

Remasters are nothing new in this console generation, and for almost a year now we've been seeing signs that the much-lauded BioShock games would be the next series getting re-released. This morning saw another piece of evidence added to the fire, but this time it was far more official and all but confirms the remaster's existence. For a short time today the website of series publisher 2K Games played host to a section for BioShock The Collection, the previously-rumored title for the remasters, and the same box art that was leaked earlier this year was soon after discovered on their servers.

No official announcement has yet been made, and the site has since reverted to its prior, BioShock-less version. Nevertheless, you can check out an image of the leak for yourself after the jump!

At their E3 conference, Microsoft unveiled the Xbox One S, which is 40% smaller than the original console and comes with a 2TB hard drive. In a blog post summing up their E3 announcements, the company revealed that preorders for the new model are off to an "amazing start." Although they provided no exact figures, they did feature a statement from GameStop's merchandising executive, who thinks the Xbox One S will be "one of our most sought-after products."

The weekly hardware and software sales numbers from Japan are in, courtesy of Media Create, and it was another slow week for the Japanese market. A handful of new titles made the top twenty this week, and Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns debuted at number one with over 100,000 units sold. PlayStation Vita title Caligula took second place with just over 31,000 sales, but no other new titles managed to sell over 25,000 copies.

Hardware sales remained relatively unchanged from last week. PlayStation 4 sales saw a slight sales boost, but combined sales of all four 3DS models were enough for Nintendo's handheld to retain the top overall spot. You can check out the full breakdown by clicking below.

Last week, Bungie announced their plans to end Destiny support for "legacy consoles," or the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game, starting when the game's new Rise of Iron expansion releases. However, even if it may seem like it, Bungie does not plan to leave the reportedly small number of players in the dust. A new support page was published on Bungie's website that details when and how players can import their characters to modern generation consoles, and what specific features will be removed from the Legacy Console versions as well as what features will still be available.

Batman: Return to Arkham has been delayed indefinitely, Warner Bros. Games confirmed today in a blog post. Following an onslaught of rumors and leaks, the remastered bundle of Arkham games was officially confirmed last month, with a release date of July 26th. However, porting studio Virtuos Games requires more time to deliver a polished experience, though exactly how much time is unknown, as no new release date was confirmed. Read on for more information.

Within the last year, both Undertale and Overwatch have stolen the attention and hearts of many gamers. While Undertale is no stranger to receiving remixes and covers of its wonderful soundtrack, this particular take on the track "His Theme" adds one unique thing to the mix: the characters from Overwatch

Resident Evil and survival-horror were once virtually synonymous, but Capcom's beloved franchise saw a distinct shift in gameplay with Resident Evil 4, and each main series entry since has been more and more action-focused. While this helped popularize the series and attract new fans, it also left many veteran players feeling alienated. Capcom took note of fan frustration when Resident Evil 6 received lukewarm reviews and undersold expectations, and they promised to do more to appeal to their core base.

As such, I was intrigued (but skeptical) when a reliable source leaked that a horror-focused Resident Evil VII would appear at E3 this year. While I trusted the source, I couldn't wrap my head around the idea of Capcom truly taking the series back to its horror roots. I fully expected Capcom to take a half-measure, scaling the action back to the level of Resident Evil 4 or perhaps Resident Evil: Revelations, but I was pleasantly surprised to be wrong. Based on what we've seen so far, Capcom is making a real effort to welcome in horror fans with open arms.

Because there is nothing quite like Christmas like bashing in zombie skulls, Capcom is reviving Dead Rising with a new game releasing this holiday season. The upcoming entry stars the first game's Frank West as he returns to Willamette, Colorado for yuletide, right as it suffers another outbreak of the living dead.

While little else is known about the game since its premiere appearance at E3 this year, leaked footage of the game has surfaced through gaming news outlet Polygon thanks to an anonymous source. The recorded video, filming an earlier build of the PC version, shows off extensive gameplay with new camera modes, selfies, and a flame-throwing lawnmower-tricycle hybrid (yes, you read that last part right). See it for yourselves after the jump!

The first expansion pack for Tom Clancy's The Division comes out tomorrow, June 28th, on Xbox One and PC. The expansion is called "Underground," and it takes place in the subterranean tunnels of Manhattan, where a number of factions are fighting a war for resources.

To commemorate the launch, Ubisoft has released a new trailer for Underground, which outlines the basic plot of the expansion and provides some new gameplay footage from inside the underground dungeons.

Game of Thrones has just delivered a finale that was non-stop action and offered an explosive amount of satisfaction, but unfortunately that means that we have to wait a whole year for the show to resume (and it's not looking like George R. R. Martin is going to release his next book anytime soon). In order to ease the pain, Xbox France is giving away an amazing Game of Thrones-themed Xbox One in combination with the sixth season of the show on Blu-ray. It seems that this action is limited to France so far, but who knows? We can always hope that this artistically crafted console will one day make it to the rest of the world.

"And yes, you can do parkour in Crocs."

That's the one line that has continued to stick in my head from an E3 show floor demonstration of Watch Dogs 2. But a number of other moments stood out to me during the demo as well, such as a political scandal involving digital corruption and the pursuit of online followers being used as a game mechanic. The Watch Dogs franchise is upping its focus on tech culture with its sequel, but they've also replaced the previous game's straight-faced self-importance with goofy self-awareness. Ubisoft's deliberate tonal shift of the Watch Dogs franchise marks a clear break from the publisher's homogeneously serious demeanor, and that's a change worth getting excited for.
