There’s A New Mega Man Game, But You Won't Get To Play It

This week, Capcom and South Korean developer Jenoi have released a new Mega Man game. Before you get your hopes up, we’re probably going to dash them with a few little words.

Rockman GoGo! is a mobile game featuring some of the series’ classic characters. The titular hero is joined by the original six robot masters and some more contemporary entries. And it’s an endless runner.

The title isn’t available here in North America (and may never be), but you can see it in action via the trailer below. Mega Man joins a long list of characters that have been put into unconventional scenarios for mobile titles.

Ant-Man Suits Up In His First Trailer

Marvel has released the first trailer for Ant-Man, the studio's latest superhero movie. It stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, a former criminal recruited by Dr. Hank Pym, played by Michael Douglas. The clip has a surprisingly serious tone for a movie about a guy who shrinks and rides a wasp, but what can you do?

Douglas gives off a strong Illusive Man vibe in his introduction, but unlike the Mass Effect character he's on the up and up.

Nyko Creates PS4 Hard Drive Add-On For Bigger, Less Expensive Drives

about X hours ago from

In the July 2014 issue, we shared with you detailed instructions on how to replace the hard drive in your PlayStation 4. For many console owners, the 500 GB available simply won’t cut it anymore.

The PlayStation 4 requires a 2.5-inch hard drive, but Nyko has announced a device that will support larger (and typically less expensive) 3.5-inch drives. The Data Bank replaces the top cover on the left side of the console with a bay for larger storage options.

This will likely shave $30 to $40 off the price of a replacement drive depending on what size you choose. Unfortunately, no price has been announced for the Data Bank, which means we don’t know exactly how much your net savings will likely be.

Lawsuit Over Use Of Former NFL Players' Likeness In Madden Moves Forward

A lawsuit involving former NFL players and their likenesses as they appear in Electronic Arts' Madden games is moving forward despite EA's attempt at an appeal.

The lawsuit is related to EA's use of the likenesses of former NFL players in Madden games. Players like former Los Angeles Rams quarterback Vince Ferragamo says his likeness and the likeness of other former players have been appearing in Madden games without their permission. EA attempted to appeal the lawsuit saying, "We believe in the First Amendment right to create expressive works – in any form – that relate to real-life people and events, and will seek further court review to protect it."

Circuit Judge Raymond Fisher wrote in the opinion about the decision to deny EA's appeal that the company does not do enough to transform the players’ likeness to claim artistic representation.

Issue #1 Of Mortal Kombat X Ready To

The Mortal Kombat series didn't begin with an emphasis on story, but developer NetherRealm Studios steadily built out the lore as the series matured. The simple framework of a tournament set on Earthrealm has evolved into Mortal Kombat X's narrative, which involves the disruption of a hard-won peace. You can get an early peek at the MK X's story thanks to a new comic book available today.

In Mortal Kombat X, readers will find out what happened to bring an end to the quiet that the champions of Earthrealm fought for during the inter-dimensional war. This comic's story is written by Shawn Kittelsen, formerly of DC Comics. Even if the series' story isn't your absolute favorite part of the franchise, it's safe to look forward to awesome fight scenes starring MK X's crew. According to NetherRealm's revealed roster, readers may be in for appearances from favorites like Raiden, Goro, and Sub-Zero, along with cool newcomers like the daughter of Sonya Blade and Johnny Cage, Cassie Cage.

You can grab issue #1 of Mortal Kombat X on Comixology here. For more information on the the game, read this interview with MK X executive producer Shaun Himmerick.

Star Fox (Unsurprisingly) Due For E3 2015 Appearance

Star Fox (Unsurprisingly) Due For E3 2015 Appearance

Nintendo announced in December that The Legend of Zelda for Wii U and Star Fox are both on track for 2015 releases. With Star Fox scheduled to release first, we were comfortably expecting to see more of it no later than E3.

Our suspicions were largely reinforced thanks to recent episode of Smosh Games’ Button Bash. Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto stopped by to play some Mario Kart and talk about the publisher’s near-term plans. The conversation turned to Star Fox, with good news about hands-on time offered.

“I think we’ll have a version of it ready at E3 that everyone can play,” Miyamoto says. “One of the questions we often get is how is the gamepad being used in a particular game. Star Fox is a game where having two screens is really important, and it works really well.”
