The original goal of the Shenmue 3 Kickstarter campaign was to raise $2 million in funds, but the game's developers have said that the game will need at least $10 million for it to "truly have the features of an open world" experience. As the fundraising campaign sits 11 days out at over $4 million, it seems that that goal is less and less likely to happen.
In a Kickstarter update, series creator Yu Suzuki answered questions from fans, and one such fan asked him if he would be disappointed if the game doesn't reach that $10 million stretch goal.
"No I won't be [disappointed]," Sukuki wrote. "I am grateful that there's another chance for a new Shenmue. I will make what I can within the budget from your money."
Yes sir, you will be grateful for every cent you've received. Every. Solitary. Cent.

Okay, somebody's been doing some digging and apparently, Alex Mayberry's LinkedI profile has listed Cloud Imperium Games as former employer, which fueled the speculation that he's no longer the executive producer on the company's long-in-the-making space shooter, Star Citizen.
Mind you the team at Cloud Imperium Games had this to say on the matter: "Needless speculation into personnel matters at CIG are neither constructive, or fair to the people being talked about."
Incidentally, the game's budget reached $85 million via crowd funding, unless I'm mistaken, and Alex Mayberry had arrived to the company from Blizzard, so if there's a possibility of this guy leaving, it's quite natural for some concerns to arise.

The PlayStation 4 version of The Vanishing of Ethan Carter will release on July 15th. So far, the preorder options are only available in the UK, which lists it as £13.94. No information yet on other territorities.
Do not think that this is a port of the PC game, as it has been completely rebuilt in Unreal Engine 4.
"It's not going to be identical because that's impossible, so it's going to be close to what's on PC but it just plays better - it just feels better when you play," Astronautsdeveloper founder Adrian Chmielarz explained.
This Unreal Engine 4 upgrade will be available to PC gamers in the next few weeks.
"The PC UE4 update is a few weeks away," Chmielarz told Eurogamer. "We need to make sure that PC gamers do get what is expected: proper support for different screen ratios, extended configuration options, etc."
The Vanishing of Ethan Carter was one of those games I always meant to play. It's a mystery that centers around exploration above all else. I may have to try it out on both PC and PS4 to experience the differences.

The game's protagonist is Jesse, who will be voiced by Patton Oswalt. Jesse and his friends revere the Order of the Stone, four adventurers who hunted and killed an Ender Dragon. While at EnderCon, Jesse and his friends are thrown into an adventure where they must find the Order and save their world. Other voice talent includes Brian Posehn, Ashely Johnson, Scott Porter, Martha Plimpton, Dave Fennoy, Corey Feldman, Billy West, and Paul Reubens.
Check out the announcement teaser from Minecon below.
"We've worked closely with the amazing team at Mojang to ensure this story is a natural fit for the Minecraft world fans already know and love," said Kevin Bruner, CEO and co-founder of Telltale Games. "As Jesse, players will steer their own path through a tale of adventure and survival; all brought to life by an all-star cast. Through Telltale's choice-based gameplay and a story spanning from the Nether to the Farlands, the End, and beyond, we can't wait for fans to experience this new take on the beloved world of Minecraft."
"The interactive storytellers at Telltale are giving players the chance to explore their own unique interpretation of the Minecraft universe," said Owen Hill, Chief Word Officer at Mojang in a press release. "They've crafted a story that follows the logic of Minecraft, but still manages to feel original. It's actually pretty funny too. And the pig is adorable. We're super excited about players digging deeper into the world of Minecraft: Story Mode later this year."
No official release date yet, but it will release for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC later this year.

Sony Computer Entertainment has announced that Bloodborne's upcoming patch 1.05 will primarily focus on online matchmaking improvements.
For starters, the patch will clearly indicate if a password is being used when a player uses either a Beckoning Bell or a Small Resonant Bell. If the level difference between the host and guest is large enough, the guest will get a stat boost (or downgrade) to match the host. There will be other bug fixes, but Sony has not explained them at this time.
The online servers will be down while they prepare the servers for the patch. Naturally this doesn't mean the single-player will be down; players can play offline the servers to their hearts desires.

The Predator Bundle pack comes with Predator and three new skins: Commando Johnny, Inferno Scorpion, and Carl Weathers as Jax. Those who already purchased the Kombat Pack Season Pass will receive the Predator Bundle automatically tomorrow. For everyone else, sadly, you'll have to wait until July 14th to purchase the pack separately. At that time, Predator and each skin may also be purchased separately.
Also on July 7th, as a thank you to the fans, all Mortal Kombat X players will receive the Klassic Fatality Pack for free, which will provide four Klassic Fatalities from the original Mortal Kombat game, including Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Sonya Blade, and Johnny Cage. The Klassic Fatality Pack will also include the Kold War Scorpion Skin for free.
Check out the Predator Bundle trailer below.
