Dragon's Dogma Is Getting An Anime Adaptation‎

Dragon's Dogma is a strange, wonderful RPG from Capcom that originally released back in 2012. It received an expansion in 2013, and since then the whole package has been ported several times, giving new players plenty of chances to give it a shot. Though devout fans (like me) have been hoping for a sequel announcement, Netflix may have just given us the next best thing. The streaming company revealed on Twitter that an animated adaptation of Dragon's Dogma is on its way, debuting on September 17. The tweet also included a poster to tease the series, but no other solid details. https://twitter.com/NXOnNetflix/status/1283181094989295616 Without spoiling anything about the game's story, let's just say that the world of Dragon's Dogma is definitely bizarre and surprising enough to make this work. Considering the acclaim that Netflix's Castlevania anime has received (as well as other shows based on games, like The Witcher), this could be a good thing for everyone.

QuakeCon Is Happening At Home, August 7-9‎

It's the 25th annual QuakeCon, and this one will be a little different. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic massively disrupting game conventions and pretty much every other aspect of life, events have gotten creative in the digital and streaming spaces this year to bring content alive. QuakeCon is taking that approach this August 7-9, as the event moves to the online space. This year, the event is QuakeCon at Home. So what's on deck? A long, giant stream! Full of influencers, surprises, Bethesda community team members and more. Traditionally, we're treated to at least some tidbits and nibbles of news from the Bethesda universe during this convention, and hopefully this year is no different! Esports tournaments! Charities! Among many great charities to supports, one of them will be a special Animal Charity associated with some adorable new shirts for sale (100% of proceeds to charity). You can check those shirts out below (Yo, I want that Catodemon. Meeee-OW!). Other special merch celebrating the QuakeCon at Home will also be available for purchase. Hopefully we get to see a cool glimpse of what's to come in the Bethesda world! Find out more details on QuakeCon at Home on the official site.

Overwatch Players Can Earn Sigma's Legendary Maestro Skin Beginning Today‎

It's been a while since Overwatch players have had a major update in the form of a new hero or map, but Blizzard is still trying to keep the experience fresh through limited-time mini-events that reward skins, emotes, sprays, and more. The newest one, Sigma's Maestro Challenge, coincides with the release of a new Overwatch soundtrack on streaming services and digital music services.

If you're looking to add some sprays to your collection, you can link your Blizzard account to your Twitch account and watch sponsored streams to earn instrument-based sprays for Sigma, Moira, Symmetra, Lucio, Mei, and Orisa.  Click here to watch embedded media Sigma's Maestro Challenge begins today and runs until July 27.

LEGO NES Officially Unveiled‎

After an earlier tease, LEGO today revealed details about its newest building set, which looks like one that will have special significance for gamers. The LEGO Nintendo Entertainment System is a faithful brick recreation of the old system, and even includes a controller and a game pack that can be slotted into the opening (don’t forget to blow on the cartridge first). In one especially fun extra feature, the set includes a retro TV that allows for a scrolling screen effect, accomplished by crank on the side of the TV. The scrolling TV also includes a cool feature where you can scan the LEGO Mario from the recent LEGO Super Mario starter course, and have him react to onscreen enemies and obstacles on the scrolling TV. The new throwback LEGO set is going to be available beginning in August through LEGO retail stores and on LEGO.com, and through other retailers beginning in 2021. Check out the video below to get a better look at this cool set. Click here to watch embedded media

Hearthstone's Next Expansion Is Scholomance Academy‎

Blizzard's next Hearthstone expansion is all about getting schooled - at magic! One of the finest dungeons in World of Warcraft, Scholomance, is ready to teach would be wizards, warlocks, and witches a thing or two about the fine arts of spellcasting. Welcome to Scholomance Academy, where Hearthstone players are headed in early August. Click here to watch embedded media The big new mechanic is dual-class cards. What does that mean? It means there are cards that can be used by multiple classes! Hunters and Druids can both tap into beastly nasties. There are 40 of these dual-class cards in the 135 card set, which should make strategies interesting. Each dual-class combination (10 of them!) gets a legendary professor. Not as exciting, but absolutely in theme is the spellburst mechanic. Found on non-spell cards, spellburst triggers when you have a spellburst minion or weapon on the board the first time you cast a spell - you can't just trigger the same card a bunch of times. Of course, this comes with some risk. Putting a spellburst minion out on turn 3 with all your resources that you plan to "burst" on turn 4 leaves the opponent a window to retort without letting you take advantage of the delicious spelltaculator action! Players can also study it up, a form of the discovery mechanic that allows you to find something useful and reduce the casting cost of the next card of the same type you select. Study is a subtle mechanic with some major applications for brain noodling.

Orcs Must Die 3 Releases Today For Google Stadia‎

Last year, Google announced that Orcs Must Die 3 would be exclusive to its Stadia streaming service. Today the company surprise-launched the game, which is also free for anyone who is a member of Google's Stadia Pro service, or you can purchase it for $29.99.  As a series, we've always liked Orcs Must Die, but it's been a long time since we've had a numbered sequel. Orcs Must Die! 2 released in 2012, and Orcs Must Die! Unchained experimented with MOBA and free-to-play elements that turned off some fans. Time will tell how the new entry fares.
