Being released over 20 years after the original, DOTT remastered is completely redrawn and updated. One of the more interesting offers is the ability to switch between remastered visuals and audio to original video and audio. There is also a commentary track featuring some of the original creators as well as a playable version of Maniac Mansion.
It is expected to be released 3/22/16 for  PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 4 and PS Vita.

Today Microsoft announced they are ceasing development on Fable Legends and they are discussing with employees a proposed closure of the UK Lionhead Studios.
Fable Legends was announced in August of 2013 and was expected to be released for the 2015 holiday season.
The game was supposed to play in a similar fashion to Evolve where 4 ‘hero’ players take on one ‘villain’ player.
It was also planned to run cross platform between the Xbox One and Windows 10.
There is not much information as to what delays they were experiencing, but it seems the Windows 10 Store exclusive PC side of things may have been a wrench in the works.

It appears Nintendo is pushing hard to sell the “NEW” 3ds systems with their most recent batch of eShop games
Pilotwings, Super Mario World and F-Zero will be available today but the SNES downloads are only for the NEW 3DS or NEW 3DSXL.
Meaning for some reason they won’t play on the 2ds or 3ds hardware.
In addition to those games Super Mario Kart, Earthbound, Super Metroid, Donkey Kong Country, Donkey Kong Country 2, and Legend of Zelda A Link to the past.
But why are these games only available for the “NEW” system? Many of these titles were playable on old hardware such as the GameBoy Advance.
More information is available in the Nintendo Direct video.

Sony has made a couple big changes recently for two of its systems.
The original PSP system’s Playstaton Store access will end March 31st.
Apparently content can still be purchased via the PlayStation Store website and in game content will still work.

The PlayStation TV will also no longer be shipped in Japan. Sony stopped shipping the Playstation TV in the USA last year.

Microsoft announced recently that Forza 6: Apex, a curated version of forza 6, would be coming to windows 10.
Apparently capable of 60fps 4k resolutions, something consoles can’t even image currently, it will be released as a free-to-play title.
In reality it appears to be a pay-to-win setup where you either dump an eternity into earning coins or just pony up cash to buy content unlocks.
I am both excited for Forza to finally be released on a system that can show it off better whilst disappointed in the marketing aspect and “Windows 10 only” release.

From the official Shenmue III website we have some very nice looking screen shots of the upcoming game.

A video was shown of some ingame areas and has been uploaded to youtube:

Here is a interesting one, the Call of Cthulhu game that hasn’t been talked about much lately might actually be coming soon.
It appears Call of Cthulhu will be a psychological horror RPG-Investigation game involving the use of stealth, according to Cyanide Software.
Personally I am hoping this plays like a survival horror.
There is no solid release date, they have only said it will be on consoles and PC in 2017.
