  • Rockstar are in trouble, with rapper Daz Dillinger sending them a cease and desist letter. According to him, despite turning down their money, Rockstar went ahead and used two of his songs in Grand Theft Auto V. He wants Rockstar to either remove all unsold copies from sale and destroy them, or to make him a better offer for the use of his music. They have two weeks to respond.
  • Rockstar have caused players a lot of trouble with Grand Theft Auto V’s patchy online mode, and they’re sorry. As a way of apologising, they’ll be handing out $500,000 worth of in-game currency to each player, in two deposits of $250,000 each.
  • Capcom have released a new trailer for their new side-scrolling Strider game during New York’s Comic Con. Check it out below.

  • Takamasa Shiba, the producer of Drakengard 3, had a lot to say about the game during an interview with Siliconera. Interestingly, he mentioned that the world of Drakengard 3 and Nier have some relation, although he couldn’t elaborate.
  • In news that will most likely surprise nobody, evidence of the development of Resident Evil 7 has been discovered. A LinkedIn profile discovered by a NeoGAF user shows that the game would have started development alongsideĀ Resident Evil 6.
  • The release of Nintendo’s HD remake of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker in the UK has caused Wii U hardware sales to increase by 685%. That’s huge…but we don’t know exactly how many units were sold.
  • Frictional Games (the creators of Amnesia: Dark Descent) are bringing their upcoming game SOMA to PlayStation 4, and Sony have released a new trailer for it.
