New Resident Evil 3 Art Listed On PlayStation Store, Points Toward Another Remake

Following the success of Resident Evil 2 remake, a leak shows Capcom may have the next entry nearing release. Two new art pieces for Resident Evil 3 (called Biohazard in Japan) appeared on PlayStation's Japanese digital store for a brief period, which was collected by gamestat, a website that tracks Sony's software and applications.

Riot Games Settles Gender Discrimination Lawsuit

Riot Games has agreed to a pay out a minimum of $10 million in a settlement of a gender discrimination class-action lawsuit, according to the LA Times. The settlement still has to be approved by the court.
