Disney Infinity servers close in March 2017, PC & mobile versions unplayable in September

Back in May, Disney announced that it was ending production of its expansive Disney Infinity game series as it exited game publishing entirely. Now the company has detailed the shut down process for the game's online services, and simply put, it's a bit messy.

Nintendo’s Q1 earnings report disappoints with Wii U and 3DS sales down

Nintendo has been very hot and cold lately. From the launch of Pokemon GO, which is shaping up to be the most impressive mobile game launch ever and caused Nintendo's stock price to soar, to the inevitable tumble back to Earth as Nintendo tried to temper investor expectations concerning the amount of money it would pull in from the title, Nintendo has been on something of a rollercoaster the past few weeks. The ride isn't over yet, as Nintendo's newest earnings report has hit, and the results for quarter one are disappointing to say the least.

Rocket launch sim Kerbal Space Program lands on PS4

Hit indie game Kerbal Space Program will be released on the PlayStation 4 on July 12th, the developer has announced. If you've never heard of it, KSP is an odd-ball simulator that tasks players with designing and building their own rockets, successfully launching them, and then flying into space to complete missions. While it keeps things light-hearted with its cute Kerbal race of alien creatures, KSP is known for its very realistic use of physics when it comes to launching spaceships.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild still has a male Link

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild still has a male Link

With a title that goes "Breath of the Wild", some might easily associate it with the phrase "breath of fresh air." In some cases, the game might indeed offer that, breaking from some of the established conventions and limits of previous Zelda games. Unfortunately, the Wii U title still doesn't break free from one of the things that has had fans and even outsiders debating endlessly. That means this Legend of Zelda still doesn't have a female Link as rumored or, at the very least, even a female protagonist.
