For Alone in the Dark, the re-release will be gaining an "Illumination" subtitle, and is being developed by gaming studio Pure. Haunted House's reboot won't be going the subtitle route, and is being developed by Dreampainters, the studio behind first-person horror game Anna.
The original Alone in the Dark was released in 1992 by Infogrames, although the series was more recently rebooted in 2008 by Eden Games as an Xbox 360, PS3, PS2, Wii and PC release. Conversely, Haunted House also had a modern spin-off as earlier this year Atari released a mobile autorunning game based on the brand. The original Haunted House debuted in 1982 for Atari 2600.

Box art and a single screenshot of Biohazard Revelations 2 — the Resident Evil series is known as Biohazard in Japan — were discovered on Xbox.com by French site Gamer In A Box. Capcom has not officially announced a sequel to Resident Evil: Revelations, but the company did cite performance of the game as one of its financial highlights last year.The first Resident Evil: Revelations was reasonably well received when it initially launched on the Nintendo 3DS in 2012, but found more muted success when it was upscaled for bigger screens on PC, PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U a year later.

This is what Diablo III should have been at launch, a beautifully constructed, tightly honed experience designed to capture players and not let them go until it's 2am and they have work in the morning.And this quote, pulled directly from Joaby's review of the game, comes from a hardened, passionate PC personality -- so the statement is not to be taken lightly.
If you want to learn more about why he feels this way, click here for our Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls Ultimate Evil Edition review.

back on Kickstarter (via Eurogamer) with another game-related figure: Hotline Miami's protagonist, Jacket.
Teaming up with developer Dennaton Games and publisher Devolver Digital, ESC-Toy's figurine will be your typical 1/6 scale 12 inch height, and will allow owners the chance to customise Jacket just like in the video game. Customisation includes removable head for pig, chicken and tiger variants, plus removable weapons like a shotgun, baseball bat and katana. The original jacket is brown and tan, but limited edition variants are available.
The Kickstarter campaign has only just launched today and is already well past its halfway mark at $36,000 of a $60,000 goal, with the figures selling like hot cakes. Already the early bird $75 figure is sold out, with only 15 of the 100 $95 "Game & Combo" tier still available. A higher priced $200 tier is available for those who want a pink and cyan Midnight Miami Marauder, though the more traditional $85 price tag is there for those wanting just the figure.
Eager to grace your work desk with a high-quality Jacket figure? Check out the Kickstarter page for all the info, or find the pitch video below to see the figure in detail.

Hello Games co-founder Sean Murray explained at gamescom last week the sheer size of the game’s universe. When the game was first being developed his team was using a 32-bit number to generate all the planets in the universe. Murray told IGN, “with that 32-bit number it would take you four or five thousand years to see every planet if you spent only a second on each one.”
According to Murray, using that 32-bit sequence wasn't enough, with the team opting to use a 64-bit number instead. This pushed the expected time taken to visit every planet for just one second to around 5 billion years to see it all. If we haven't all been burnt to a crisp and your PC or PlayStation 4 is still relevant, well consider yourself lucky to be the first to see all of No Man's Sky.
No Man's Sky is scheduled for a release sometime within the next 5 billion years, first on PlayStation 4 and then on PC.

The teaser for A Voyeur for September consists of grainy live-action footage, including shots of someone peering into a house and black and white vignettes of flora and fauna. The developer will also be showing off the game at this month's PAX event, located at the Indie Megabooth.
Team Meat is also working on Mew-Genics, a cat-breeding sim. That project has been put on hold, however, while Team Meat devotes time to another project, presumably A Voyeur for September. One half of Team Meat, Edmund McMillen, is also working on The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth. A new listing has pointed to a release on PC, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android.

While he got hands-on with the Shadowlord (more on this later), he was also able to sit down BioWare Austin general manager Jeff Hickman to talk about the game's genesis, its story basis, how the episodic nature of its delivery is going to work, being PC only at the moment and much, much more.

$51,075,243 has been generated from 525,131 backers, according to the Roberts Space Industries website. The new crowdfunding amount has now solidified alien languages for Star Citizen, the latest stretch goal from developer Cloud Imperium Games.
Cloud Imperium Games boss Chris Roberts has yet to note the milestone, nor offer a new stretch goal, but it follows a big week for Star Citizen in which two new modes were announced: Vandal Swarm co-op dogfighting and Murray Cup racing. Money came in from the sale of new Constellation class ships, which can be operated by multiple players. The cheapest of these, the Taurus, costs $150.

The developer doesn't officially reveal who those characters will be, but as Polygon remarks, the sillhouettes for two of them are pretty unmistakebly from Team Fortress 2, with the fan favourite pryo, and the large-fisted Australian entrepeneur Saxton Hale. Polygon also notes that a third character -- a female dual-wielding pistols -- bears a striking resemblence to Lara Croft, but it does seem a little less likely Tomb Raider license holder Square Enix would have much interest in that.
STFU brings all the insane time-travel action of Super Time Force to PC along with brand new bonus content including: 50 new Helladeck challenge levels, inter-dimensional Ultra Force powers and 3 super-awesome, super-secret new characters! STFU is the ultimate in personal computing time travel technology!Super Time Force is due on steam on August 25th 2014. Check out the trailer below.

Much like the game's post-alien invasion Earth, Bungie's depiction of Venus looks quite a bit different than if you were to visit there today, terraformed vegetation and all. A brief description explains that in the game's lore, the planet was "once the site of a great discovery – a paradise. Now, it is a monument to all that we have lost".
Destiny is due to launch on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360 on September 9th 2014.

We’d like to say that Pete Hines is our fearless leader, but when it comes to survival horror games, it probably apt to call him our fearful leader. And for that reason, we thought he’d be the perfect first guest for Bethesda Twitchworks to play The Evil Within. In the dark.The Evil Within is being developed by Japanese studio Tango Gameworks, led by Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami. What over an hour of the footage from it below.

The Xbox One's August update reorganizes user activity feeds, adding text entry and expanded options for shared media. After applying the upgrade, players can purchase Xbox One content online and install it remotely without manually powering on the system, a system currently implemented in Sony's PlayStation 4. Media playback also gets a boost with 3D Blu-ray support and the ability to disable system notifications while watching video.
Other new features include notifications for low controller batteries and a "last seen" option that tracks friend activity. Microsoft plans to introduce additional improvements to the Xbox One's media player and other firmware components in the next system update due later this year.
