Fighting EX Layer Creator Teasing New Character In Tweet

Arika vice president Ichiro Mihara has posted an image of character for Fighting EX Layer that hasn't been shown before, despite the game's roster being more or less final.

With Fighting EX Layer being out next Thursday, it's no surprise the game will appear at the week's major fighting game tournament, Community Effort Orlando (CEO). In a Tweet thank the tournament for their presence, Mihara also posted a strange screenshot.

We are honored to be able to participate in CEO 2018. This sentence has nothing to do with the picture (w#FEXL@CEOGaming

Star Control Developers Start Fundraiser For Ongoing Legal Battle Against Stardock

Star Control Developers Start Fundraiser For Ongoing Legal Battle Against Stardock

In the next chapter of the fight for control of the Star Control series, original series creators Fred Ford and Paul Reiche have started a Gofundme fundraiser for the estimated $2 million they need to defend themselves against Stardock, which is suing them for the rights to the franchise.

The short version of the backstory here is that Ford and Reiche developed the first two Star Control games, but, through a serious of closures and buyouts, Stardock currently owns the rights to the Star Control series. Stardock is currently developer Star Control: Origins using the name of the series but none of the alien species in the original games, while Ford and Reiche's company, Dogar and Kazon, is creating Ghosts of the Precursors, which is billed as a "direct sequel" to Star Control II.

Ford and Reiche alleged in December that Stardock was suing them over Ghost of the Precursors. They also believe Stardock does not have the rights to Star Control, and filed a counterclaim against the company back in February. Since then, the Star Control have disappeared from the likes of Steam and GoG, Ford and Reiche have posted timelines and legal settlements from their side of the story, claiming Stardock CEO Brad Wardell had at first not questioned Ford and Reiche's ownership of the series, then quickly (the next day) turned around and threatened litigation over the rights.

Bungie Making Changes To Exotic Armor Pieces In Upcoming Patch

Bungie Making Changes To Exotic Armor Pieces In Upcoming Patch

Bungie has detailed some of the changes it's planning to make some of the more underutilized Exotic armor pieces in Destiny 2's 1.2.3 update, boosting the strength and versatility of three armor pieces each for Hunters, Titans, and Warlocks.

For Hunters, Lucky Raspberry will have an increased chance to recharge your Arcbolt Grenade should you land a hit with it, and nailing four targets will automatically refill it. St0mp-EE5 now adds increased jump height to all of Hunters' jumps, not just the High Jump. Young Ahamkara's Spine no longer marks targets hit by Tripmine grenades, but now increases their throw speed, blast radius, and durability. Solar ability hits now also grant Tripmine Grenade energy.

For Titans, ACD/0 Feedback Fence now works as more of a defensive item by granting increased melee damage resistance instead of dealing damage after hit melee attacks (the armor piece now also grants charges based on melee hits and not kills). Doomfang Pauldrons have been spruced by replacing the melee-oriented ability with the ability to extend the Sentinel Shield super after landing Shield Throw hits. Dunemarchers have been buffed significantly, amount of sprint time necessary to activate a charge from five to one-and-a-half seconds, and increasing its damage across both PvP and PvE.

DC Comic To Launch New Imprint Dedicated To Edgy, Standalone Stories

Today, DC Comics announced that its launching a new imprint geared toward "edgy, provocative" takes on some of everyone's favorite superheroes called DC Black Label.

In the early 90s, DC launched some of the most popular, enduring stories not just in comics but in all of fiction under its Vertigo label including Preacher, Y: The Last Man, Fables, A History Of Violence, and The Sandman. These titles were original properties geared towards courting an older audience, mimicking the content of R-rated films. It looks like DC now has plans to do another Veritgo label but this new one is focused on DC characters like Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman.

DC Black Label will launch with Superman: Year One, penned by Frank Miller and illustrated by John Romita Jr in August, with a host of other stories to follow, per DC's announcement:

Today is the 27th anniversary livestream for Sonic the Hedgehog, which unfortunately did not have any loud buzzing sounds or people in Sonic costumes being awkwardly asked to stop dancing and exit the stage. It did, however, have an announcement of a few new characters for Team Sonic Racing.

Amy comes with a pink car that she is basically invisible standing against, the Chao which is actually four Chao driving together have a pod-like buggy, and Big the Cat has a big green car that looks like Froggy and has a fishing rod in the back. 

Team Sonic Racing later this year on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Switch.
