To be clear, no formal announcement about "Destiny 2" has been made by Bungie or Activision at this point other than the fact that it is coming sometime in 2017. The Kotaku news post from which this new information stems is based on intel received from sources close to the game's development or who work at Activision. Moving the game to PC seems like a natural progression for the series given that it left last-gen consoles behind with Rise of Iron. Not only would this open up the title to a whole new audience, but we may even see some form of cross-platform play.

Two Sonic Games in the Works, Possibly Featuring Co-OpJason Love

It's unclear at this point if either game will feature co-op as many of their previous titles have. The trailer for Project Sonic features the line "but even heroes need help" before an updated version of the "classic" Sonic appeared to team up with the "modern" Sonic. Sonic Mania is an interesting "remastered vision" of the original Sega classics and features three playable characters - Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles - but it made no mention of whether it would support co-op.

There have been mutterings and rumors abound about a third game in the popular zombie shooting co-op franchise, and this is by no means any kind of confirmation that the title is being worked on. But getting a tease like that lead many folks to dig further and look at things like the developer's recent play activities on Steam. Apparently, he's been spending a lot of time with Left 4 Dead 2, leading some to wonder if it's actually Left 4 Dead 3 and the dev is just putting it up behind that title.

While the ratings do point to a potential release of the games on the consoles, they do not indicate how. It's quite possible that on the Xbox One, all three would be part of the Backwards Compatibility program, which just recently saw the addition of Portal 2 and Left 4 Dead. PlayStation 4 has its PlayStation Now program that lets you play select Playstation 3 titles on either a per-game basis or via a regular subscription, and it has also started releasing certain Playstation 2 games for direct purchase. Then again, and this is my hope, they could be remakes with some visual enhancements. I remember playing through a significant portion of both Ultimate Alliance games with my brother-in-law and having a great time, so I would love to see those make a return.

The title saw an Early Access release back in February 2014 (it was in an open beta prior to this) and has remained in that state ever since. After the game's publisher dropped it in March 2015, it was picked up by Reloaded Games and the original developer, Adhesive Games, was acquired/absorbed by them as well. Despite the rocky development, the game is not dead. In fact, the developer posted an update on the game's Steam page this past February.

Rather than go through any of the possibilities for what could be in the game, let's talk about the few pieces that came out of all of this that are known. Scott Kester, art director for Borderlands 2 and Battleborn, will return in a similar capacity for the new game and Mikey Neumann, the Chief Creative Champion and voice of the character "Scooter," will be responsible for penning the story. Based on a Facebook post by one of the main concept artists on the team, it sounds like things are still in the planning stages for the new title, though there may be some easter eggs about the game in Battleborn DLC.

Please take note that this is all speculative, though 343 has been receptive to player feedback on the games and they did post a Q&A stating that such a mode is something they'd consider if there was enough interest in it. That's all some folks needed as an opening.

From the gameplay footage, Wild looks to be an open-world title where players are shamans capable of harnessing the power of nature. What powers those are are determined by you. Throughout the course of the game, players will encounter various animal divinities who will grant you power. Some of these may ask you to live as a particular animal for a period of time, while others may demand a sacrifice. No choice is "wrong" and it sounds like Ancel wants to avoid the usual good vs bad choices found in many RPG titles.

As long-time fans of the series may recall, the original Halo and its sequel both got PC releases while all entries since have been console only titles. That has not stopped folks from clamoring for them to be ported to the PC. Prior to the game's release, Frank O'Connor spoke with GamesRadar about the new title and a part of that discussion included this choice quote:

Today, Amazon Italy put up a photo of the game’s box art online that displayed another Donkey Kong character not previously mentioned by Nintendo: Cranky Kong. Cranky Kong, who is actually the original Donkey Kong from the Donkey Kong arcade games (just an elderly version of him) may be playable, as the art suggests this given Dixie’s portrayal in the group shot beforehand. Again, this isn’t officially confirmed by Nintendo, but the potential could be here, since Dixie will definitely be playable. Also, the image was quickly taken down after it went live. We did hear from Nintendo representatives that additional characters may be included in the game besides the confirmed three, so we’ll have to wait and see.

Everyone remembers that first moment when they got to the top of the agency tower. The sounds of the city slowly drowning out as you ascend, making each precarious jump and inching closer to the skies. Ascending to the summit was incredibly satisfying and when you had a friend along for the ride it was even better. So it's good to know that the Crackdown franchise isn't dead. When an orb appeared on the Xbox One dashboard during a demonstration of the system, many figured it was just a placeholder graphic.
