Ninja Gaiden Developers Play The Messenger In This Video

The Messenger, out tomorrow, is a Ninja Gaiden-inspired indie platformer that wears that inspiration on its sleeve. The game even goes as far to literally mention Ninja Gaiden by name early on when the journey begins.

Devolver Digital realized it made sense to have Ninja Gaiden's director Hideo Yoshizawa and composer Keiji Yamagishi play through The Messenger and chat about the game and even talk a bit about their own experiences making one of the NES's most notable and punishing action-platforming games. For example, did you know Nintendo asked Tecmo to create an underwater level for the game because they, for some reason, thought platformers needed one?

The Xbox One Elite Controller Will Be Available In White Next Month

The Xbox One Elite controller is a nifty, expensive little device that lets you fine-tune your gaming experience if you've got some cash. And starting next month, you can refine not just like analog sticks, d-pad, and paddles you use to play Xbox One and PC games, but the color, as well.

The white version of Microsoft's top-of-the-line controller retails for the same price as the original ($150) and offers all the same options, such as reprogrammable buttons, four additional paddles that you push the face buttons without taking your thumb off the analog sticks, and more. The controller will be available starting on October 16, but you can pre-order one now.

Riot Apologizes To Employees And Players In Wake Of Recent Sexism Allegations

League of Legends developer Riot Games has come under intense scrutiny after allegations regarding rampant misogyny and sexism in the company's offices. Today, the company announced its first steps to begin improving the company.

The allegations first arose in an exhaustive exposé from Kotaku, which revealed several women at the company were being mistreated, disrespected and passed up for promotions based on their gender. In the wake of the article, former Riot employees told their stories about similar incidents they faced at the company.

As a result, Riot has posted a blog on their website outlining some of the changes the company plans to undertake. "We will weave this change into our cultural DNA and leave no room for sexism or misogyny," the company said. "Inclusivity, diversity, respect, and equality are all non-negotiable."
