Baldur’s Gate 3 has been confirmed

A few days ago some rumors about the possible launch of a new installment of the Baldur’s Gate series started. The bomb was finally dropped yesterday during Google Stadia event, where Baldur’s Gate 3 was announced. We could as well be talking of THE announcement of the year, something that could surpass anything that might be revealed during the upcoming E3 because Baldur’s Gate is the most famous role-playing game of all times, the classic of all classics.

Baldur’s Gate has changed a lot over the years

Since the original game launched in 1998, every other RPG has been compared with it in one way or another. For the last 20 years, Baldur’s Gate and it´s sequels have determined the standard of “epic” in the genre, and most of the fans of Dungeons & Dragons and role-playing games have been hoping to see something remotely close to the series. We even got remastered versions of the original games a while ago.

Larian Studios are the ones in charge of developing Baldur’s Gate 3. The creators of Divinity: Original Sin and its sequel, another two great RPG that have followed the steps of Baldur´s Gate but that also brought a good deal of innovation to the genre with their clever use of the interactions with the scenario to enhance the gameplay and the strategy in the game. It´s great news that they are the ones developing Baldur’s Gate 3 because the expectations about the game couldn´t be any higher.

The announcement trailer is very explicit about what could be happening in Baldur’s Gate 3. It seems that mind flayers don´t have enough with controlling their good share of the Underdark, and their target is the city that gives the name to our favorite game, Baldur’s Gate. If Larian stays true to Forgotten Realms setting we already know what to expect from Baldur’s Gate 3: an epic storyline full of twists and turns that will lead a group of heroes through one of the greatest adventures ever told. The combination of the gameplay mechanics shown by Larian in their previous titles with D&D lore and 5th edition ruleset could give birth to a game worth of another 20 years of praise. We can´t wait to know more about it.

Borderlands 2 would be entitled to a new DLC

There were already vague rumors about the possibility of a new DLC for Borderlands 2, but so far nothing very credible, especially since the title was released seven years ago. Well, as crazy as it sounds, it seems like it is. And the source is quite reliable since it is on the card Steam of Borderlands 2 where the info briefly appeared. You don´t need to rush and go checking since the record has been removed already, but not fast enough that nobody notices.

Borderlands 2: Commander Lilith & the Fight for Sanctuary

This DLC would be called Commander Lilith & the Fight for Sanctuary, and it would serve as the connection between Borderlands 2 and the next episode. But there is still more. This new DLC would propose new quests, new zones, and weapons, but also new bosses and types of enemies. The maximum level would be raised to 80, compared to the 50 of the base game and the 72 in the DLCs contained in the Season Pass. However new players could start directly at level 30. And we kept the best for the end because the most astonishing and delightful information is that this DLC for Borderlands 2 would be released on June 9, in just three days, and would be totally free! Here is the description of the DLC that was seen on the Steam page:

“Return to the award-winning shooter-looter for a new adventure that sets the stage for the upcoming Borderlands 3. Sanctuary is under siege, the Vault’s map has been stolen and a toxic gas is poisoning Pandora. Fight new bosses, explore new zones, get new loot (including an entirely new tier beyond Legendary) and join up with Lilith and the Crimson Raiders to take on a deranged villain hell-bent on ruling the planet”

Keep in mind that nothing has been officially confirmed by Gearbox or 2K Games at the moment, but given the source of this leak, it’s a safe bet, especially considering that we are less than a week away from E3.

In the meantime, we leave you with a few screenshots of Borderlands 2: Commander Lilith & the Fight for Sanctuary.

Super Smash Bros. Melee Custom Cabinets Created for High Scores Arcade


Ever wanted to test your Super Smash Bros. skills at the arcade? If you’re in the San Francisco Bay Area, now’s your chance – the arcade has created their very own arcade cabinets for Super Smash Bros. Melee.

Shawn and Meg Livernoche commissioned Denver artist Sam Bahman of Rewind by Design to build the cabinets and design its artwork.

According to Bahman:

“Every detail of these cabinets is entirely made from scratch, by hand. The speaker grills feature the Smash Bros. logo, backlit with LED lighting. The control panels are engineered to securely house four GameCube controllers. Once the fabrication was complete, I began the three stage automotive paint process for a deep, maximum shine. It was important to Shawn and Meg that the character styles matched the 80s look to fit the aesthetic of the cabinets. It was a challenge considering the characters encompassed a twenty year span, but overall I think we nailed it.”

According to Shawn Livernoche, co-owner of the arcades:

“SMASH is one of those rare multiplayer games for consoles that successfully brings the spirit of being in an arcade home- it invokes that same excitement for me as when I first played Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 4-Player arcade with my best friend Anthony back in Trenton, NJ when I was 12.”

He added:

“SSBM is a beautiful, energized Nintendo spectacle of chaos and control and it always belonged in the arcade! There’s no better controller to play it on than the one from the original GameCube. We knew our biggest challenge in the design was going to be making those two truths complement instead of contradict each other.”

They Are Billions will have a campaign

You could think that zombie survival and RTS strategy are two genres that may have nothing to do, but They Are Billions proves that the mix of them can be amazing. The premise of the game is very simple: build your base and defend it from waves of zombie swarms.

They Are Billions, literally

As you explore the world around you, build your defenses, fend the first few waves of monsters and progress through the game you will realize very soon that the pace of the game is quite fast and that it’s quite difficult to survive. You will suffer dire consequences if even a single zombie infiltrates into your base and the problems will only grow bigger from there on.

The gameplay of They Are Billions is quite addictive tho, and fighting against all the odds to further develop your defenses will get you playing for hours. But all this is just about to become even more fun if possible because developer studio Numantrian Games has announced that the game is getting its first campaign very soon.

The campaign is titled The New Empire and it will place you as a colony administrator under the orders of Quintus, who plans to take the world back from the infected and conquer it building a series of colonies. Your mission will be to build those colonies, connect them with a railroad system, and recruit an army to fight against the infected as you expand through the territory. As you explore, you will recover technologies, meet new characters, and eventually find out information about the origin of the infection that has turned your world into a zombie nightmare.

The New Empire will be available for They Are Billions on June 18th through a free update and it will also add two new Survival maps to the game, The Deep Forest and Caustic Lands.

Rogue Reaper Review

The almighty Grim Reaper has certainly got his hands tied with the constant influx of people sliding off their mortal coil, but he’s got some help in the form of his daughter in Fireroot Studios’ new title Rogue Reaper. Though this pint-sized undertaker packs the necessary tools for the job, this is one title that should have stayed dead.

Rogue Reaper Review

Things are looking bleak for Europe in the Dark Ages. A plague has swept the land, knocking out 30-50% of the popular. Though it means there is a steady stream of work for the Grim Reaper, he is getting a little overwhelmed with his duties while in the Underworld. His daughter, not one to take things sitting down, takes off into the World of the Living to find the source of the plague and abolish it, scythe and lantern in hand.

All of this story is told in the first few minutes of the game, and that is all the story that is provided. Though the initial opening cutscene is well done and fully voiced, this level of polish does not carry over to the game proper.

Rather, those that enter the World of the Living as this mini reaper will be greeted to a world of muddy textures, maze-like city streets, and more fog than the world of Silent Hill. The game has does have an end point – fountains serve as checkpoints and there is always somewhere else to go. However, for every narrow passageway, there is another wide open area with a number of dead ends.

Rogue Reaper - Gamers Heroes

Along the way, a number of enemies stand in her way. The standard attack has her shooting out a blade of damage to all those who interfere with her duties, but the hit detection does not give off a satisfying feeling of impact when done. Most battles devolve into circle strafing, all while clicking until the foe is vanquished. Stealth kills are also available, but those do not always work as they should.

The other method of attack lies in telekinesis. Players can pick up objects and fling them at foes, but this requires a bit too much action on account of the player. Those who take the time to utilize this system will already take a few hits, putting them at a distinct disadvantage.

Other than these two mechanics, a dash move and a wall run are also at the player’s disposal. The wall run, though used sparingly, works as you would expect it to. However, the dash does not serve its purpose, providing a brief jolt with a cooldown. We ended up not using this mechanic for most of the game and completed the title without much trouble.

If anything, this title is overly short. From start to finish, we were able to complete Rogue Reaper in around 20 minutes. There are some perks players can earn, and there are a handful of achievements, but it barely does anything before wrapping things up.

Rogue Reaper’s bland aesthetics and short length squander any of its potential. Though this is a free title, it could have used more time in development.

This review of Rogue Reaper Review was done on the PC. The game was freely downloaded.
