EA confirms Anthem delay but says a new Battlefield game is coming this October

BioWare's Destiny-alike online shooter Anthem was expected to be released sometime near the end of this year, and in fact if you go to the official Anthem YouTube channel, it still lists "fall 2018" as the release date.

You're glued to the floor in 2D platformer Dandara

The titular protagonist of 2D Metroidvania platformer Dandara is glued to the floor. Admittedly, I don't know if it's actually glue, but I'll be damned if it doesn't look like it.

Destiny 2 update goes live with new Masterwork Armor and Raid gear perks

The latest Destiny 2 update went live today, and as tradition dictates, so too did the patch notes. Masterwork Armor is now available, granting a bonus three percent damage resistance per piece (stackable to 15 percent) when your Super is active. Legendary armor pieces can now drop as Masterworks from any source, and existing Legendaries can be upgraded at a cost of five Masterwork Cores and 20 Legendary Shards; Masterwork stat packages can also be re-rolled for one Masterwork Core and 20 Legendary Shards, and a willingness to embrace the sweet kiss of RNGesus.
