The indie game Rogue Legacy is coming to PlayStation platforms on July 29, developer Cellar Door Games announced today. It will hit PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and Vita simultaneously, and features cross-buy and cross-save through all three platforms.

The announcement promises all of the features and content patches from the PC version and support for multiple languages: English, Brazilian Portuguese, French, German, Polish, Russian, and Spanish. The studio also states that it designed Rogue Legacy with Vita buttons in mind, to make sure any eventual port would be optimized. That's some serious foresight.

Rogue Legacy is a platforming action-adventure with roguelike elements, meaning randomized dungeons and constant death. But the story centers on a lineage of heroes taking up the task from their fallen parents, so each new life is a new family member with unique strengths and weaknesses. It received positive reviews on PC when it released last year.

As we reach the end of March, we take a fresh set of new Twitch streams from three more of Chatty's most active community members. This week, we venture back into the chivalrous world of Rogue Legacy with ChiefSquattingBear, before exploring some more recent titles in the form of Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls (with your host, mrwolf710) and the WildStar beta, where Awun shows off some of the upcoming MMORPG's PvP modes in action. Here's a compilation of some of the best Shacknews Twitch highlights for the week of March 29, 2014.

With only 12 days left until Christmas, it's time for Weekend Confirmed! Hosts Garnett Lee and Jeff Cannata welcome in Shacknews' Ozzie Mejia and "Indie" Jeff Mattas to take a look back at last Saturday's VGX awards. After briefly looking at the show, in general, the topic turns to the many games that were on display, including Titanfall, No Man's Sky, Quantum Break, and Tales from the Borderlands. With the VGX in the books, it's time to focus on more microtransaction controversy, this time, as it relates to NBA 2K14. Then it's time to talk more games, with Garnett and Jeff sharing their respective knowledge to one another: Garnett teaches Jeff the intricacies of driving in Gran Turismo 6, while Jeff tells Garnett everything that he's doing wrong in Rogue Legacy. The show wraps up with a look back at Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Tearaway, Dead Rising 3, and more before concluding the week with new Finishing Moves and the post-show Tailgate.

Humble Bundle is best-known for its pay-what-you-want bundles, but has now launched something a little less fleeting: the Humble Store. The permanent storefront will sell games for Android as well as PC, Mac, and Linux. It all kicks off with a sale on nine games, including Don't Starve, Gunpoint, and Rogue Legacy.
