D&D has another date with horror on the way thanks to Van Richten's Guide to Ravenloft, a new sourcebook due to launch May 18 2021 . Featuring tools for creating everything from a tabletop zombie apocalypse to arenas inspired by Battle Royale, the tome is available to pre-order now at Amazon US or Amazon UK . Van Richten's Guide to Ravenloft: $49.95 at Amazon US / £35.39 at Amazon UK Although it shares DNA with last year's Curse of Strahd Revamped , Van Richten's Guide to Ravenloft is its own beast; the book tours multiple kinds of horror settings. Strahd's gothic homeland of Barovia gets plenty of love, of course, but its pages span Lovecraftian worlds and dark fairy tales as well. In fact, the sourcebook features more than 30 regions - known as the Domains of Dread - and the means for players to create their own. With that in mind, it brings a very different flavor to Dungeons & Dragons. “I’m a huge fan of all things horror," lead designer Wes … [Read more...] about Van Richten’s Guide to Ravenloft brings the zombie apocalypse to Dungeons & Dragons

Many Valheim players probably had the same moment of dreadful realization the first time they built a pair of portals, one at their base and one at some far flung, resource-rich location. After mining a bunch of ore, they tried to step through the magic circle to return home and... couldn't. You can't take ore through portals. Dang. But some clever Vikings found a little exploit that involved stepping through the portal and clicking on a cart or chest at the same time, sneakily adding the metals to their pockets just as they blip away through the magic doorway. Hooray! Well, the Valheim patch released today sounds like it puts an end to the little "teleport ore chest hack," as it's described by the devs, so you'll need to find another way to cheese the portal/ore challenge or resign yourself to transporting your metals by cart and ship. (Though there is another way, actually, sorta.) The patch, version 0.143.5 , also lowers damage on deathsquitos, those flying menaces from … [Read more...] about Valheim patch fixes portal exploit, makes deathsquitos more cuddly
Beyond WandaVision's big cameo in episode 5 , one blink-and-you'll-miss-it mystery still remains. While trying to find out the truth behind Westview, SWORD's Monica Rambeau decided to draft in some much-needed help in the form of an "engineer" she's chummy with. But, outside of a quick close up on the phone she used to text them, we're still none the wiser as to who it might be. Marvel has a long, long history of superheroes and civilians capable in science, as well as those adept at tinkering with technology. While Monica specifically mentioned it was an engineer of the aerospace variety in her powwow with Randal Park's Jimmy Woo and Kat Dennings' Darcy Lewis, the field is still pretty wide open when it comes to the identity of the unnamed engineer. But it's got to be someone familiar, right? From the MCU's Mightiest Heroes to those we've yet to meet – here are the five most likely candidates. Reed Richards The Fantastic Four are officially coming to the MCU at some … [Read more...] about Who is the engineer in WandaVision? A look at the leading candidates from Marvel’s past (and future)
Black History Month For Black History month, we're looking at the impact of the Black Lives Matter protests on the games industry, and following up on pledges made by publishers and developers. Following the death of George Floyd and worldwide protests in solidarity with Black people last year, the games industry's lack of diversity came under increased scrutiny. The industry is still predominantly white—Ukie, the UK's primary video games industry body, conducted a member survey in 2020 that revealed that of the 10 percent of industry workers that identify as BAME (Black, Asian and minority ethnic), only 2 percent are black. A self-reported survey conducted by the International Game Developers Association in 2019 revealed the same figure. In the summer of 2020, several companies in the games industry raised money for charities fighting racial injustice and released statements in support of Black Americans or Black people in general. Over 1,000 developers donated their … [Read more...] about Has the games industry lived up to its Black Lives Matter promises?
