The Borderlands 3 Takedown at Maliwan Blacksite event has been moved back

Takedown at Maliwan Blacksite is an endgame raid in Borderlands 3 that's balanced for a full party of four maximum-level Vault Hunters. But for a limited time, it'll be set to scale down for your party size—though not your level. That means you'll be able to take it on with a small group or even solo, but even then you should be level 50 before you give it a shot. The rewards stay the same, so it'll be a good time for looting.

Modders build a full-fledged Harry Potter RPG inside Minecraft

Would you like a free Harry Potter-themed RPG built entirely inside Minecraft? Of course you would want that. You—at the very least—would not not want that. Well, a team of “poor students” called The Floo Network have spent the last four or so years making a sprawling Minecraft map that runs as a complete Harry Potter RPG inside vanilla Minecraft. What first started as a the team’s decision to spend a couple years making detailed models of various Harry Potter locations inside Minecraft—something you might remember from 2017—has become a massive undertaking that gives us… Minecraft School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Here’s the trailer:

AI War 2 has a huge new update making strategy’s toughest AI even harder

Space grand strategy-RTS hybrid AI War 2 has a new patch which cranks up the difficulty by making the vicious AI even more vicious with stronger defenses and increased tactical acuity. With patch notes at nearly 15k words the 1.3 update, per the developers, “almost feels like a sequel in some ways, which is how we like it.” AI War 2 is the sequel to AI War: Fleet Command, a game with what is probably the most fiendishly clever and competitive AI opponents ever in a strategy game.  AI War 2 is just as intense, and as the name implies the highlight of the series is just how good the AI opponent is.

First-person puzzler of lights and killer shadows, Lightmatter, releases this week

Lightmatter is a devious-looking first person puzzle game set to release on January 15th where you manipulate light sources to get from point A to point B—mostly due to all the flesh-eating shadows in between you and the exits from any given room. This is definitely one for fans of Antichamber, The Talos Principle, Manifold Garden, or Portal. It has that story-driven twist, too, with a primary antagonist by voice actor David Bateson—that’s Agent 47 to the unfamiliar. I like how it looks—an attractive aesthetic with a thick-lined, high-contrast art style that really suits it and looks smooth in play.
