Under normal circumstances, Minecraft's Creepers are hissing, phallic beasts that like to chase players and explode when they get close.

Peaky Blinders is a very popular BBC period drama about men who have the inverse of Patrick Stewart's hair.

Baldur's Gate 3 is 'slowed down' by the coronavirus, but still on track for 2020

The ongoing COVID-19 outbreak has forced game developers of all shapes and sizes to work remotely, and that's had an impact on a number of games and major updates in development. Bethesda had to move the big Fallout 76 Wastelanders update back because working from home slowed down testing (it's out now, though), and Amazon's New World MMO, the Path of Exile 2 beta, and future Rainbow Six Siege updates are among others that are also facing delays.
