Scarlet Nexus Explainer Video Shows Players The Ropes Before Launch

Scarlet Nexus finally arrives later this month. To get players primed and ready, Bandai Namco released a new explainer video that serves as an in-game synopsis of the game’s dual protagonists, the monstrous creatures known as the Other, the super-powered OSF, and more.

The eight-minute trailer dives into the history and abilities of Psionics, humans born with special powers. The world is being invaded by plant-like aliens called the Other, and the only ones that can stop them are the OSF, an elite military unit consisting entirely of Psionic individuals. Two of its members are Scarlet Nexus’ leads: Yuito Sumeragi and Kasane Randall. Both OSF soldiers share the spotlight but you can only play as one of them at a time. That means you’ll need to play Scarlet Nexus twice to get the full story. Check out the video below for a breakdown of each character’s combat styles in what’s likely the final big primer before the game releases. 

Scarlet Nexus is being developed by Bandai Namco in a team consisting of designers who worked on Tales of Vesperia. That lineage shows due to the sharp anime aesthetic and fast-paced, action-oriented combat. You can watch us get our feet wet with Scarlet Nexus’ stylish combat in this recent episode of New Gameplay Today

Full Borderlands Movie Cast Photo Revealed, Possible Full Trailer Reveal Coming Soon?

Earlier this week, Lionsgate offered a few character teasers for the upcoming Borderlands movie. Each cast member was shrouded in darkness, and it looks like that trend is continuing with the latest reveal. We've got a full Borderlands movie cast photo with small details of color, but it looks like this ramp-up could be teasing a full reveal during E3 2021. Possibly a trailer during Gearbox's showcase? We don't know, but it's looking more and more likely with each tease. 

The below photo sees the silhouettes of Krieg, Lilith, Tannis, Tiny Tina, Claptrap, and Roland once more. This time, however, they're together with small hints of color:

Lionsgate also shot us over a revamped synopsis for the new film, saying:

Deep Silver Confirms No Dead Island, Saints Row, Metro, Or TimeSplitters E3 2021 News

It's almost E3 time, which means gaming announcements are dropping soon! Like clockwork, the rumors are flying, and the hype train is at full speed, which makes the need to temper expectations all the more vital. Deep Silver is doing just that following the announcement that its parent company, Koch Media, has a few reveals in store for Summer Game Fest with Geoff Keighley. 

The company took to Twitter to put a more realistic lens on what Koch Media will have to show off, confirming that there will be no Dead Island, Saints Row, Metro, or TimeSplitters news. Which is great because there have been rumors regarding each title in the past few weeks: 

Our parent company @KochMedia_HQ is making an announcement as part of #SummerGamesFest on June 11th. To give you a head’s up, you won’t see Dead Island, Saints Row, Metro or TimeSplitters there (or at any other E3 2021 event). We’ll let you know when we have news to share.

Far Cry 6 Will Offer A Third-Person Mode Throughout The Game

In our most recent look at Far Cry 6, Ubisoft showed a few instances where it looked like the player could shift from first-person to third-person regarding perspective. Some fans wondered if that was an actual gameplay feature or something specific to just cutscenes. Luckily, Ubisoft has confirmed that a third-person mode won't be limited to just a small portion of the game because the team wants to be able to fully explore the Dani experience without limitations. 

In a recent interview with GameSpotnarrative director Navid Khavari told the site that there were a few different reasons that factored into the decision to offer a third-person option. Among the chief reasons was that the team wanted players to be able to experience Dani as fully as possible. "In cinematics, [third-person] is something the team tried early on, and it felt surprisingly seamless," Khavari told the site. "It instantly felt like there was more of a connection to Dani's journey in the world, more of a connection to this epic story in Yara."

Marvel Multiverse Tabletop RPG Announced With Official Rulebook Coming Next Year

Are you a Marvel fan and tabletop RPG aficionado that would love to experience your favorite comic universe by slinging dice with friends around a table? The Marvel Multiverse Role-Playing Game could be just for you. The newly-announced board game will allow players to step into the boots of Marvel’s greatest champions, or to create their own heroes, to battle the biggest and baddest villains in comics. 

While the game itself won’t be on shelves until 2023, the official rulebook, dubbed the Marvel Multiverse Role-Playing Game: Playtest Rulebook, will be sold first beginning March 2022. The book is written and co-designed by Matt Forbeck, author of The Marvel Encyclopedia and Dungeons & Dragons: Endless Quest, and will introduce players to the game’s D616 System (named after Earth-616, naturally). The press release doesn’t explain what the system is exactly, only describing it as a "natural evolution" to existing tabletop rules that will be “simple and easy-to-learn” for newcomers to the genre.

Since this is comics we’re talking about, the rulebook is packed with colorful illustrations by various comic artists. It features profiles on heroes such as Spider-Man, Thor, Captain America, Black Panther, Ms. Marvel, Captain Marvel, Wolverine, Storm, and many others.

Best Mass Effect Legendary Edition Head Morph Mods (So Far)

The trilogy remaster has much better hairstyles this time around, but that doesn't mean there isn't room for improvement. For those looking for an even more improved Commander Shepard, here are some of the best Mass Effect Legendary Edition head morph mods available so far. 

Since mod support is still incredibly limited on console outside of Bethesda titles like Elder Scrolls and Fallout, the below mods are just for PC players only. I'm hoping that changes in the future regarding studio consideration of the modding community, but until that happens? It is what it is. So, without further ado, let's dive in, shall we?

Let's start with FemShep because there are many more of those. 

Latest Destiny 2: Season Of The Splicer Cutscene Is Heartbreaking And Beautifully Told

Latest Destiny 2: Season Of The Splicer Cutscene Is Heartbreaking And Beautifully Told

We previously talked about how Destiny 2: Season of the Chosen was a huge pivot for the team at Bungie with the narrative surrounding the space shooter. A true turning point for the ongoing story and a positive step into the future of what Destiny 2 will have to offer fans. With Season of the Splicer in full swing, the next step of storytelling has begun, this time giving us a closer look at the Fallen beyond just being enemies and the harrowing reminder that Savathun continues to grow in influence. That being said, the most recent cutscene for season 14 is truly art and showcases that Bungie is not letting that momentum from the previous season wane in the slightest. 

Because this article is talking about the most recent story scene, there are obvious spoilers. Please proceed with caution. 

The latest update for the MMO brought with it a promise to implement feedback from the community about some of the more overt epileptic triggers in-game and the highly requested Stasis nerf. It also gave us the next step of the evolving story, a step that is honestly stunning and has me excited to see how this season will play out. 

An 'Among Us' Chicken Nuggie Sold For Almost $100,000, Because What Is Life?

An 'Among Us' Chicken Nuggie Sold For Almost $100,000, Because What Is Life?

Food that is shaped like certain objects has always been a fascination in online markets. Toast with the face of Jesus on it, a Dorito that looks like the pope if you squint one eye and completely shut the other. It's a phenomenon, really. Very important stuff, truly. Adding to that pile of food that sold for exorbitant amounts of money is a chicken nuggie (nugget, I'm an adult) that looks like it came straight out of Among Us. This little fella sold for almost $100,000. I mean, we like a sus little astronaut jelly bean as much as the next person, but this is just getting ridiculous.

The seller that made bank off of processed chicken parts goes by Polizna, and they cashed in smartly when putting up a McDonald's nugget on eBay after noting its suspicious-looking design. Shaped like the little beans we know best from the whodunnit game, nearly 200 bidders competed to win this coveted prize of beauty and fame. However, only one could win, and that winner won a grand prize of being down 100,000 bucks. 

Bungie Shares Plans To Make Destiny 2 More Epileptic-Friendly

Bungie Shares Plans To Make Destiny 2 More Epileptic-Friendly

The gaming space has made major strides in recent years when it comes to accessibility, but there is still more work to be done. This work can be done without negatively impacting the gaming experience, but knowing how to do so is the first step. As someone that experiences seizures following an injury I received back when I was active duty, my entire worldview shifted and suddenly I saw entertainment in a different light. Games, movies, TV? All suddenly had this level of danger I was previously unaware of. You don't even need to have epilepsy to experience a seizure if the trigger is aggressive enough. That's why I was so pleased, so grateful when I saw the latest developer update from Bungie about a game I play religiously: Destiny 2. Following a few epileptic PSAs highlighting what are triggers so that Guardians can avoid them while still playing, the team at Bungie added in a new warning screen at sign-in while also detailing more changes going on behind the scenes to make this space adventure a little safer for all. 

In the most recent blog post from Bungie, the studio acknowledged recent reports about Destiny 2 and possible epileptic triggers. In addition to the in-game notice added this week, Bungie also added more details to its EULA (End User License Agreement) and a plan of action for future updates:

More Borderlands Movie Cast First Looks Include Claptrap, Tiny Tina, And More

Earlier this week, actress Jamie Lee Curtis shared our first look at Cate Blanchett as Lilith in the upcoming Borderlands movie from Eli Roth. While just a vague outline, the reveal does seem to hint that a full trailer could be coming soon with E3 just around the corner. While we ponder that notion, we do have a few more cast looks, including seeing Kevin Hart as ... um, as Roland. 

In case you missed it, you can see Blanchett as Lilith in the tweet below. We've also got Roland, Tiny Tina, Claptrap, Tannis, and Krieg images. Again, vague outlines, but could very well be teasing a full reveal soon, especially with Netflix's "Geeked" showcase running during E3
