Baldur's Gate 3 Players Are Horny With

Baldur's Gate 3 is in Early Access and from what I've played of it, I fell in love. But you can also actually fall in love with the in-game romances and it turns out? We're all a lot hornier than we realised. At least according to Larian's data pulled from key choices made in the game. 

In a recent interview with IGN, Larian Studios founder Swen Vincke opened up a bit more about how the Early Access period is going ahead of another update on the way. "They're all horny, I can tell you that," he said as if that was anything new and unexpected. 

It turns out that we're not all just horny, we're evil too. Or, at least, we don't have a good moral code when looking at how many people went to bone town with Minthara. When talking about some of the data findings from the Early Access period, Vincke said: "I can see how many people slept with Minthara. That's quite large, and to get there you have to be evil. There's certainly people that have had no moral scruples."

Destiny 2: Beyond Light Disables Rose And Witherhoard Weapons Until Further Notice

Destiny 2: Beyond Light Disables Rose And Witherhoard Weapons Until Further Notice

Destiny 2: Beyond Light is now available and while overall the reception to the new expansion is incredibly positive, there are still a few tweaks that need to be hammered out. Bungie has disabled two powerful (and popular) weapons once it was discovered that they work a little too well with Europa's arrival. 

The first weapon to be taken down is the Exotic Witherhoard Grenade Launcher. Powerful in its own right, this weapon's functionality essentially blew up with Beyond Light. The issue with this gun pertains to PvP. It was found that once a player steps into the pool, the player is basically taken out instantaneously because the burn doesn't go away no matter how many dodges and jumps occur. 

Due to an issue, we have disabled the Witherhoard Exotic Grenade Launcher until further notice.

Halo TV Series Recasts Cortana With Original Voice Actress

The original voice of Cortana returns for the upcoming Halo TV series on Showtime. Originally, the Cortana role was given to Natascha McElhone, but scheduling conflicts have forced the actress to drop out of the upcoming show. Works out well for fans, because the replacement casting has put Jen Taylor in the role of Cortana, a role she is intimately familiar with having played her in the games. 

Taylor brought Cortana to life in every mainstay Halo game, so we know she's got the chops for it. The news that the original Cortana voice actress would be reprising her role for the upcoming live-action series came on the heels of the confirmation that the show has resumed production. Following delays onset by COVID-19, the main star of the series, Pablo Schreiber, shared the good news with a small teaser image of Master Chief's helmet. 

The series itself is currently filming once more in Budapest, Hungary. The ten-episode series is executive produced by showrunner Kyle Killen (Lone Star) and directed and produced by Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes). Stephen Spielberg, Showtime, and Amblin Television assisted 343 Industries in putting together the creative team, alongside 343's Kiki Wolfkill.

An Official Metal Gear Solid Prostethetic Arm Line Is Now Available

There are some incredibly creative ways that amputees can share their love for gaming with prosthetic attachments and the latest allows for pure Metal Gear Solid fandom. Though not the first to adapt the iconic Metal Gear franchise, Komani itself has partnered with Open Bionics, a famed prosthetics company, to make an official replica for those that desire a little additional flair. 

Given Venom Snake's narrative surrounding his arm being lost due to an explosion in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, this pairing is perfect for gamers looking to spread that Snake love. 

The company shared a video, seen above, of 29-year-old Daniel Melville sporting the new prosethetic. According to Open Bionics: "29-year-old Daniel Melville, who was born without his right hand and has been wearing a Hero Arm for over 3 years, is the very first recipient of the new Metal Gear Solid design."

Somebody Made A Dragon Age Among Us Crossover, Dreams Do Come True

If you read any of my work, even in passing, it's possible you already know my undying love for Dragon Age and my recent obsession with Among Us. From cosplay to mod coverage, I will take any excuse to write about either one of these gaming experiences. So when a friend shared with me that there was a Dragon Age Among Us crossover, you can imagine how much I absolutely lost my mind. 

Let's be real, Solas is super sus, so this actually works perfectly having Dragon Age Inquisition-style jelly bean astronauts: 

Well...someone had to make it

Bojangles Is Giving Away A Themed Xbox Series X (No Sauce Included)

In the most random of random mashups, Bojangles is getting in on the next-gen hype with a special Xbox Series X. 2K is offering a Borderlands 3 edition, and now there is a finger-lickin' chicken-lover version as well. 

That fast food chain took to Twitter with the crossover console, saying "Ok, we're really dong this," with an added "Yes, seriously" at the end for good measure. Is the Xbox Series X cute? Nope. Is it cool looking? Also no. Is it weird enough to make us want it? Maybe...

Ok, we’re really doing this.
