Lohan is suing us for attention, says GTA V developer

Lindsay Lohan's lawsuit against Grand Theft Auto V developer Rockstar Games is simply a bid for attention, say the company's lawyers.

Lohan claimed Rockstar used her likeness for a character in the game without her permission.

Lohan's lawsuit claimed that the Jonas character is an "unequivocal" reference to the Mean Girls actress.

However, Rockstar's lawyers stated that Lohan's lawsuit has no merit, and that she “filed for publicity purposes”, reports the Associated Press.

Rockstar's lawyers want the case dismissed, and want Lohan to pay their legal fees.

Minecraft PS4 fails Sony certification

The PlayStation 4 version of Minecraft has failed its final certification, making an August release unlikely.

Developer 4J Studios – which is responsible for all of the game’s console ports – revealed yesterday that Sony found flaws in what was to be the build that shipped to retail.

The Xbox One version of Minecraft is also supposed to release in August, although a date has yet to be announced.

Blizzard has "six or seven" more World of Warcraft expansions conceptualised

Blizzard already has concepts for another "six or seven" World of Warcraft expansions, says game director Tom Chilton.

The developer is in active development on the World of Warcraft expansion that will come after this year's Warlords of Draenor.

"We already have zones in production for it", said Chilton.

In addition, Chilton said Blizzard will determine the theme of the expansion to follow that expansion "over the next several months".

"Beyond that, there are about six or seven different ideas for expansions that we can take elements of and say, ‘You know what? Let’s take that and put it in this one for our next expansion after the next one.’ Or we might shift the timelines around from what we originally envisioned. There’s easily 10 years worth of stuff that we can draw from – more, really."

Exosuits are optional in some Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare multiplayer modes

It will be possible to play some Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s multiplayer modes without the exosuit, developer Sledgehammer has confirmed.

The exosuit is the biggest addition to the FPS franchise in years, and allows players to double-jump, boost dodge, deploy a shield, and more.

“We understand that some players may want to go back to the more traditional style [of Call of Duty],” Sledgehammer studio co-founder Michael Condrey told YouTube personality DVLZStation.
