Razer says that since the (reportedly all-cash) deal was to acquire select assets and personnel from Ouya, and not the company as a whole, the company disclaims responsibility for making good on Ouya’s outstanding debt. …
The Dungeons & Dragons-flavored, free-to-play MMORPG, Neverwinter, is getting its seventh free expansion next month. Strongholds challenges players to build up their own bases and defend them against onslaughts from enemy players, complete with a new PvP mode.
Strongholds contains the biggest zone Neverwinter players will ever explore, and it's filled with crafting materials you'll need to build up your own hall. Players can level up their buildings by performing quests, which will then feed back into their characters to make them stronger. Strongholds also introduces a new MOBA mode, where players will attempt to take down bases with the genre's traditional three-lane gameplay. For more info, watch the trailer below and check out the screens in the gallery.

[Update] All Of Street Fighter V’s Post-Launch Updates And Characters Will Be Earnable In Game For Free
Update: Capcom has offered a few more details about its plans for Street Fighter V's long-term support – which includes the ability to unlock DLC characters by playing the game.
You can check out the full update on Capcom's Unity blog. Some important quotes from Capcom's blog post include, "Long gone are the days of forced Super and Ultra upgrades!" Street Fighter V's disc is the only version of the game you will ever need to buy and all balancing updates will be free.
Street Fighter V will launch with a core roster of 16 playable characters, with 4 of them being brand new fighters to the Street Fighter universe. Post-launch, we will be adding new characters to the roster on a continuous basis, which will provide new content for players to enjoy. Again, every post-launch character released will be earnable for free through gameplay!
The idea, according to Capcom, is to avoid infrequent large bundle updates that split apart the fan base as some people choose to update and some don't. With Street Fighter V, characters and updates will be distributed evenly throughout the game's lifespan. Capcom writes, "It will ensure that there is always new content to look forward to in the short term, and it prevents the competitive environment from ever becoming stale."
The system that will be implemented is one familiar with anyone who has experienced a free-to-play model. There will be two types of currency. Fight Money can be earned by playing the game and can be used to purchase content. Zenny will be the premium currency that players can purchase using real money to buy content.

During EVO 2015, which is happening through this weekend, Capcom detailed a number of exciting details about Street Fighter V covering how its long term support will be free.
You can check out the biggest details below according to a presentation from Capcom.
- The initial disc is the only disc you will need to own.
- All balance and system adjustments will be available for free.
- All post-launch gameplay related content will be earnable by playing the game.
- Street Fighter V will be the first iteration in the franchise where it is possible for dedicated players to earn all gameplay related content for free, by playing the game.
It's fair to assume, "post-launch gameplay related content," means DLC characters, and you will be able to unlock all of them without necessarily having to buy them.
Capcom has confirmed to us the veracity of the bullet points details above, and says it will post more details on its blog later today. For more on Street Fighter V, head here for our hands-on preview with the game from E3.
This is big news for Street Fighter. The last bullet-point statement, "Street Fighter V will be the first iteration in the franchise where it is possible for dedicated players to earn all gameplay related content for free, by playing the game," makes me raise a bit of an eyebrow, because it seems like you could say that of Street Fighter II for Super Nintendo, for example, or the Street Fighter: The Movie game, but Capcom may be referring to the way each Street Fighter has received multiple releases before the era of DLC add-ons. Regardless, this is good news for Street Fighter fans.
Microsoft is giving all Forza Horizon 2 players on Xbox One a little something extra for their garages. For a limited time, you can get two different Porsche vehicles for free.

CD Projekt Red took a little break from its free DLC plans last week. The decision was made to give the team more opportunity to focus on the massive patch that we reported on this weekend.
But now that’s out of the way and you can start getting your freebies again. This week, it’s another aesthetic item. Ciri gets a brand new look.
CD Projekt promised 16 pieces of free DLC, but the studio is also working on significantly larger, paid expansions. We now know those will be about the size of the entire The Witcher 2 experience.
You can read more about the upcoming expansions in our previous coverage.
Zuma’s Revenge is now free on PC for a limited time, thanks to EA’s On The House program. The action-puzzler originally released in 2009, but is still a worthy game to sink some time into.
In Zuma’s Revenge, players are given control of a rotating frog with the ability to shoot colored balls from its mouth. As a long string of balls moves from one end of the level to the other, players must shoot and match balls into groups of three or more to destroy clusters and eventually clear the level.
The game is only free for a limited time, so be sure to swing by Origin’s On The House page to grab Zuma’s Revenge for free while you can.
Valve's games have always been playgrounds for the motivated mod community, and Portal 2 is no exception. Portal Stories: Mel follows the titular Mel as she explores an Aperture Science laboratory of the past. Taking place in 1952, the game features about 22 new levels, original music, and a completely original story all created by fans.
Join Ben Hanson and myself, two of the biggest Portal fans in the office, as we play through the game's opening and are impressed by the amount of detail in the world and puzzles, and are less impressed by the voice acting.
Portal Stories: Mel is free, granted you have Portal 2, and you can grab it by heading here.
