Sega Producing Dreamcast And Mega Drive-Themed Candles

Sega is producing scented candles that look like Dreamcast and Mega Drive consoles, and they want fans to tell them what the systems should smell like. The company didn't say if the fans' suggestions will actually determine the scent of the final products, but the person who makes Sega's favorite suggestion will receive both candles for free.

Sega announced the candles and the contest on the Sega Forever Facebook page. Commenters on the post have already come up with some fun suggestions, including hot plastic and chili dogs.

There's no word of a release date for these smelly systems, but the Sega Forever post says the candles are currently "in development."

Summer Games Done Quick Starts This Sunday

Summer Games Done Quick, an annual charity event that raises money by soliciting donations while speed running through games, starts this Sunday.

The event is the Summer instance of the bi-annual Games Done Quick banner, with each event usually having different charities to support. SGDQ this year is raising money for Doctors Without Borders, one of the multiple charities that Games Done Quick has collectively raised $14 million for since they started streaming these events. All of the donations go straight to the charity.

You can find a schedule of the speed runs this year right here, which begins with Banjo-Tooie and includes speed runs of the newest Metroid game Samus Returns, Cuphead, a Tool-Assisted bot speed run of F-Zero GX, and way, way more. Make sure to check it out, spread the word, and donate for a good cause.

Bethesda Sues Warner Bros. Over Mobile Westworld Game

A few years ago, Bethesda worked with Behaviour Interactive to release a management sim based on the Fallout franchise. It was fine. Then earlier this week, Warner Bros. announced a mobile management sim based on the HBO TV series Westworld. We thought the game looked fairly similar to Fallout Shelter.

And so did Bethesda — a little too similar.

Bethesda filed a suit in a Maryland’s U.S. District Court stating, that the Westworld game features “the same copyrighted computer code created for Fallout Shelter.”

World Of Warcraft Offering Free Weekend

Like all forces of nature, World of Warcraft continues to endure. The long-running MMORPG has had more hours played than most games have had hours thought about. As the Battle for Azeroth expansion nears, Blizzard is giving players a chance to return to the world (of warcraft) and play with their friends.

Until June 24, you can log back into WoW and play to your heart's content. You get full access to the game and all your characters completely subscription-free because Blizzard is betting you'll be back for the long haul.

You can check here for full details, but really all the details you need is that June 24 is your cutoff date, so you had best jump in while you can.
