Are you getting antsy about Mighty No. 9?

Because it doesn't have the best track record at keeping its fans and backers up to date, the Mighty No. 9 project has once again started making waves across the internet. Based on a recent "no comment" response from Deep Silver regard...

Mighty No. 9 is a lesson for future Kickstarters

Well, Mighty No. 9 has been delayed. Again (Déjà Vu, right)! Even though the aforementioned headline stresses "again," it would be nearly indistinguishable from the past occurrences. So what's wrong this time? Well, "onli...

Keiji Inafune's ReCore is launching on PC too

A big to-do was made about ReCore's reveal at E3 2015, as it seemed Keiji Inafune's next game would be an Xbox One exclusive. It turns out that's only a half-truth, as ReCore will also be available on Microsoft's Windows 10. The reveal...

Inafune promises no more Mighty No. 9 delays, talks sequel

The Mighty No. 9 situation is just silly to me at this point. After multiple delays, including a last-minute one that was perfectly timed around the Red Ash project's end, and an "apology" Flash game, it's almost like a circus. No...

Mighty No. 9 trial version delayed after being an apology for initial delay

The Red Ash anime Kickstarter is funded, game still woefully behind

Yes, you read that right -- there are two Kickstarters currently underway for Red Ash -- one is for an anime, and the other is for the game. While the latter is now funded by way of an outside publisher for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, the former...

Red Ash hasn't become an overnight success for Comcept. Unlike Mighty No. 9, the project is struggling to meet its $800,000 Kickstarter goal, having raised just over half that with 9 days to go. With the clock winding down, Comcept is trying to turn the campaign's fortunes around, announcing a potential PlayStation 4 release and sharing some early footage of a pre-alpha prototype.   read
