You might remember Mothergunship when it was announced a little while back. Since then, we listed it as one of the best indie games we played at PAX West and did a deep dive into the game earlier this month. Finally, the developers are ready to tell the world when they can finally get their hands on the game and it's only a few weeks until its release of July 17.

Mothergunship tasks players with taking down an alien invasion by blowing up everything between them and the mothership. Players gain gun parts and customize the weirdest and most powerful guns to blast their way through with their own creative methods of combining parts.

Check out the launch announcement trailer below.

Mega Man X Legacy Collection Changes One Of The Series' Oddest Localization Choices

Mega Man X Legacy Collection Changes One Of The Series' Oddest Localization Choices

Eighteen years ago, when Capcom was preparing to release Mega Man X5 on the PlayStation in America, the task of localization fell to third-party localization company Genazea. At the time, Genazea was headed by Erik Suzuki, the editorial supervisor for Resident Evil 2 before he founded a separate company to work with multiple companies. When Mega Man X5 rolled in, Suzuki asked his wife Alyson Court, also known as the English voice for Claire Redfield, to name the Maverick bosses in the game. Before X5, they were all usually named with a descriptive word and then an animal name – Chill Penguin, Crystal Snail, Cyber Peacock, etc. Court, knowing her husband was a Guns N' Roses fan, suggested that they name the bosses after Guns N' Roses references. This meant names like Duff McWhalen, Axle the Red (who has a rose on his head), and Squid Adler. They both liked the idea.

In the years since, fans made it clear that they weren't fans of the changed boss names, and no Mega Man title has taken that kind of liberty with the names again. The full story about it was told by Alyson Court in a now-deleted Twitter post from 2011, but Capcom themselves have never really commented on it.

Mega Man X Legacy Collection's X Challenge Mode Trailer Shows Harrowing New Boss Arrangements

Mega Man X Legacy Collection's X Challenge Mode Trailer Shows Harrowing New Boss Arrangements

Mega Man X Legacy Collection is following in the footsteps of the previous Mega Man Legacy Collections, but is going a step further with the new X Challenge Mode. 

The new mode pits X in a new armor set against bosses from the series history. Rather than being a simple boss rush, however, the X Challenge mode combines Mavericks from different games and puts them into a single room with X. The bosses are arranged by themes, like ice bosses Chill Penguin and Frost Walrus together, Spiral Pegasus and Dark Necrobat to represent light and shadow, and the genuinely upsetting combination of Vile and High Max.

X only gets to choose two weapons aside from the X Buster to bring with him to the fights, which is a lot harder than it sounds. You can check out a trailer of the X Challenge fights below.

Amy, Chao, And Most Importantly Big The Cat Announced For Team Sonic Racing

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.
