Mighty No. 9 delayed again, now releasing in 2016

Bad news today for fans of the upcoming game Mighty No. 9, the spiritual successor to Mega Man from its creator Keiji Infanue: its release has been pushed back from next month to sometime in "early 2016." This comes as a shock, as Mighty No. 9's scheduled release, September 15th, was so close, and it's the second delay following an initial push-back in April. The news came from developer Comcept and was delivered to backers of the game's Kickstarter on their exclusive forum.

PlayStation Plus subscribers will get to vote on future free games

PlayStation gamers who subscribe to the $50 per year PlayStation Plus service are well accustomed to the free games each month, but soon they will be able to help decide which games are given away sometime in the future. As it is now, each month sees two free games each for the PS4, PS3, and PS Vita, while lately there's been a lot of cross-buy titles, which makes a game available on two or all three of the systems. However, Sony has always been the one to choose the games.

ZombiU heading to PS4, Xbox One, and PC as ‘Zombi’

ZombiU heading to PS4, Xbox One, and PC as ‘Zombi’

It has been a few years since ZombiU, the zombie game for Nintendo's Wii U, made its first appearance. The game came about in 2012, and by summer 2013 its maker, Ubisoft, failed to see a profit from the game -- something that was more damning of the Wii U than anything else. The game was originally meant to be a Wii U exclusive, but a few years ago it was mentioned that it may arrive on other consoles, and the very poor reception on the Wii U spurred that toward reality.

67-year old Schwarzenegger recreates iconic Terminator 2 bar scene

67-year old Schwarzenegger recreates iconic Terminator 2 bar scene

In an effort to promote his special appearance in a wrestling video game (WWE 2K16), Arnold Schwarzenegger has recreated his role as the Terminator from T2: Judgement Day. It is here that he re-enters the biker bar in the nude, demanding of a biker: "I need your clothes, your boots, and your motorcycle." Of course this biker and the rest of the patrons of the bar are all wrestlers - but that's not going to change anything, really. He'll still get the cigar jammed into his chest, and we can assume the rest of the carnage will follow.

Rise of the Tomb Raider is coming to the PS4 and PC

Rise of the Tomb Raider was snapped up as an Xbox offering, but as it turns out, it will be making its way to other devices as well: namely, the PlayStation 4 and PC. Square Enix announced that it will be available on Steam early next year, and that those on Sony’s gaming console will also get access, but will need to wait more than a year, as it won’t be arriving until 2016’s holiday season. Whether those with a PlayStation 3 will get access wasn’t mentioned, and therefore it isn’t looking likely.

Mortal Kombat X brings the rock with Tremor

The final Mortal Kombat X component of the Kombat Pack has arrived in this week's bundle. The bits and pieces you get here include new skins and a whole new character: Tremor. This fellow is rather rocky. He's basically Jax, but with rock arms instead of metal. He's also got less rockets going for him and more magic. Almost like he's Sandman from Spider-Man, but with more rocks and less sand. You may well have seen him before, too - he first appeared in Mortal Kombat: Special Forces.
