Roller Champions should skate out next year

When Ubisoft announced Roller Champions with great fanfare and a public alpha test at E3 2019 but only a few months later announced a delay and went a bit quiet, I thought it might join the ranks of their many seemingly-dead games. But those forgotten games are on: Gods & Monsters is due in December (even if it has a daft new name), the space game teased in Watch Dogs 2 is out next month, Ubi even swear Skull & Bones is still happening, and now they’ve announced Roller Champions ‘rolly’ (really) will launch in 2021. It’s a bit like roller derby mixed with basketball, or Rollerball without the motorbikes. read more

Baldur’s Gate 3 multiplayer lets everyone vote on dialogue choices – including Twitch

Baldur’s Gate 3 multiplayer will allow a cooperative band of players to enjoy the narrative-driven adventure, just as in Larian’s previous Divinity: Original Sin titles. This time, however, there’ll be an expanded system for selecting dialogue, which will give parties a more democratic way to choose what happens.

New Nintendo Switch Leak May Reveal Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s Next DLC Character

A new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate theory may have figured out the next DLC character coming to the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite game. While Nintendo is expected to reveal the game’s next DLC character soon, it’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about the game’s remaining DLC characters.
