Disney shut down its entire gaming division back in May, including Disney Infinity. The company has now released an official timeline showcasing the gradual shutdown of Disney Infinity's online services, leading to the complete discontinuation of online functionality on March 3, 2017. The scheduled removal of these online features has already begun, as in-game purchases can no longer be made in the PC, Steam, iOS, Android, and Apple TV versions of Disney Infinity 2.0.

Telltale has been creating critically-acclaimed, story-focused adventure games for a while now, but it seems that with their upcoming Batman: The Telltale Series the company will feature a new sort of multiplayer mode. "Crowd Play" was recently announced as a new feature for the Batman series, which will allow other people to help with decisions within the game. Up to 2000 other players can log-in using a special room-code and vote on their pick for a decision in-game, and the host has the option to either pick the majority or choose their own path.

Each month, Microsoft provides owners of its Xbox Live Gold subscription with a couple of free games for Xbox 360 and Xbox One, and the upcoming rewards for August look to be pretty good choices. Xbox One owners will be able to pick up Koei Tecmo's Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate as well as wrestling title WWE 2K16. Xbox 360 seems to be the highlight of the month, however, as owners of that platform will receive indie hit Spelunky, as well as the HD version of the cult classic Beyond Good & Evil. Both of these titles are also available on Xbox One via the backwards compatibility program, though, so all Xbox gamers can enjoy these two hits!

Following a leak on GameFly, last week Nordic Games confirmed that a remastered version of the original Darksiders is in the works for current-gen platforms. For those hoping to get more news soon, you're in luck, as this morning they issued an official announcement of the reworked game, dubbing it "Darksiders Warmastered Edition" and setting its release date for October 25th. Nordic also provided a list of features that the remaster will contain, including 1080p resolution and a target of 60 fps on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, with Wii U targeting 30 fps. Oddly, they didn't mention the online functionality that was hinted at last week, so it seems we might need to wait a bit longer for news on that.

The Resident Evil franchise will be taking on a new form with the launch of Resident Evil VII early next year, and Capcom has been revisiting the classics in the meantime. Resident Evil HD remaster was a success last year, selling over 1 million copies, and Capcom followed it up with an HD remaster of Resident Evil 0 earlier this year.

This has also proven to be a successful venture, as Capcom reports that it has now eclipsed 1.1 million copies worldwide since launch. By comparison, the original Resident Evil 0 on GameCube has sold 1.25 million copies to date since releasing in 2002. Capcom is also planning a full remake (as opposed to a simple remaster) of Resident Evil 2, continuing their trend of dusting off the classics.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse was a smash hit last year, and developer Bandai Namco Entertainment is following it up with a sequel this October.

There's tons of footage of popular characters in action, epic battles, and iconic moments from the anime and movies re-imagined in video game form. You can check it all out by clicking below!

The weekly hardware and software sales numbers from Japan are in, courtesy of Media Create, and Level-5's beloved Yo-kai Watch series continues to dominate the Japanese market. Yo-kai Watch 3 (available in Sushi and Tempura versions) sold another 168,782 copies, bringing the grand sales total of the games to just over 800,000 in two weeks. Although there were a handful of other new games this week, none of them managed to sell 50,000 copies. As such, it was a relatively stagnant week for hardware, with most devices seeing only very slight sales increases or decreases over last week.

Nothing in college is quite as sacred as drinking a few delicious, wholesome beverages on the weekend. Many folks will use these often hoppy, sometimes grainy (but rarely corny) drinks as a centerpiece for various games and lollygags at friendly get-togethers. Chief among these spirited games is the world-famous Beirut—or as the kids call it these days, "beer pong." The game is so popular that a Halo 5 Forge Map designer named AFTM Reclaimer has just created a near-perfect replica of classic drinking game in Halo 5 that anyone with a copy of the game can play right now.

Today's Rare is drastically different from the company that cranked out a steady stream of hits for Nintendo back in the 1990s, but in pushing forward they don't want to forget about where they came from. The Microsoft-owned developer is currently working on a pirate game called Sea of Thieves that's quite different from what we're used to, but Rare is including some references that pay homage to their classic titles.

Speaking during a panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Sea of Thieves art director Ryan Stevenson revealed that one of the ways the Xbox One exclusive will reference fan-favorite games is with unique figureheads players can equip on their ships. Examples given during the panel included a pirate-themed take on Joanna Dark from Perfect Dark and a ferocious bear holding a bird crest, referencing Banjo-Kazooie.

During Microsoft's E3 Media Briefing last month, they revealed that a new version of Xbox One would launch later this year. Xbox One S is 40% smaller than its predecessor, features a built-in power supply, and can display 4K Ultra HD video and Blu-Ray. Microsoft announced that a 2TB model would launch first (now confirmed for August 2nd) and that 500GB and 1TB models would follow at a later time.

Today, Microsoft revealed that it won't be a long wait for the smaller models. Starting on August 23rd, you can get a 1TB Xbox One S bundled with Madden NFL 17, seven Madden Ultimate Team Pro Packs and one month of EA Access for $349 USD / $449 CAD. On the same day they'll be launching an Xbox One S Halo Collection Bundle. Available in both 500GB and 1TB models ($299 and $349, respectively), this bundle includes Halo 5: Guardians and Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

During Sonic's 25th Anniversary celebration last week, a ton of information was revealed about the latest packs for LEGO Dimensions. In November, Warner Bros. will be releasing J.K. Rowling's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them in theaters across the nation. LEGO Dimensions' Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them story pack will let you play through the entire film. The pack includes six levels, as well as a Newt Scamander Lego minifigure and Niffler, which can be rebuilt into the Vicious Vulture and Sinister Scorpion. A fun pack based on the movie will include a Tina Goldstein figure and Swooping Evil creature, which can be turned into the Crawling Creeper and Brutal Bloom.

Microsoft hasn't exactly been conventional when numbering their consoles; they jumped from the Xbox to the Xbox 360, then backwards in number to the Xbox One. However, in a recent interview with IGN, Microsoft's former chief Xbox officer said that they almost called the Xbox 360 the "Xbox 3." The reason they considered this was so they could "catch up" with Sony, who were also working on the PlayStation 3.

More than a month ago, Bungie revealed the next DLC expansion for Destiny. Named Destiny: Rise of Iron, this final expansion will add a new map, social space, story, enemies, and the usual plethora of weapons and equipment.
