Tales from the Borderlands screenshot of a robot giving a thumbs up

When Telltale Games shut down in 2018 their games quickly got pulled from digital storefronts. The immensely popular ones like The Walking Dead series returned with remarkable speed, while the rest ended up getting stuck in legal limbo. A fair bit of time has gone by since then, but I'm happy to say that a brand new game has just managed to escape that living nightmare!

The game in question is the truly terrific Tales from the Borderlands, a choice-driven adventure that takes place between Borderlands 2 and 3. So if you're in the mood for a heavily story focused Borderlands game, you can now once again pick it up on PC, PlayStation and Xbox, while the Switch version will be launching on March 24, 2021.

BlizzCon Online will be starting this February 19 and will feature a great deal of announcements for the World of Warcraft and Diablo series. While most of the information is still shrouded in mystery, you might be quite happy to hear that Blizzard has accidentally leaked one of the big reveals - the long-awaited World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade Classic!

Burning Crusade Classic will bring with it all of the excellent content you might expect: Blood Elves and Draenei as new races, Outland as a new continent to level through, new raids and dungeons to toy around with, the Arena PvP system, as well as Jewelcrafting as a brand new profession. Most importantly of all, Burning Crusade Classic will bring back the Fel Reaver in all of its one-shotting glory to scare the living daylights out of a brand new generation of newbies!

The remake of the classic Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time was originally supposed to arrive in January, but due to the pandemic throwing a wrench into things, Ubisoft chose to postpone it to March 18th. Unfortunately, it seems that even that was too optimistic as Ubisoft has now come out to announce yet another delay.

"Since announcing Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake in September, we saw an outpouring of feedback from you on this beloved franchise," reads the brief update. "It is your passion and support that is driving our development teams to make the best game possible."

As a part of a recent announcement, Activision has revealed that Crash Bandicoot 4 will be heading over to PS5, Xbox Series X and S, as well as Nintendo Switch on March 12th. The good news doesn't end there, however, as a separate post has unveiled that the PC version is in the works as well!

Unfortunately, while the console have a firmly set release date, the exact launch of the PC version is currently shrouded in mystery. That said, Activision has stated that the PC version is "coming soon" and has already opened up pre-orders on BattleNet. So if we're lucky, Crash Bandicoot 4 might just slide-jump over to PC a month or two after the consoles.

Despite getting banned in the Standard format back in September 2020, Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath has continued to be a massive problem for MTG Arena and Magic: The Gathering as a whole. This eventually culminated in him becoming one of the most played creatures across the vast majority of formats, even some of the ridiculously high-powered ones like Modern.

Something clearly needed to be done, and I'm happy to say that Wizards of the Coast has now finally struck back against the omnipresent titan. In other words, Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath has now been banned from just about every format! And in order to ensure this type of mistake doesn't happen again, his partner in crime Omnath, Locus of Creation has been properly banned from Historic instead of merely suspended.

[Update]: Blizzard has accidentally revealed World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade Classic!

After being delayed due to the pandemic, Blizzard's massive convention BlizzCon will be starting this February 19 in a purely online form. Best of all, unlike some of the previous years, all of the developer panels and announcements will be entirely free to watch.

If you're curious which games these announcements will even cover, you'll be pleased to hear that Blizzard has now released the official schedule. The Diablo and World of Warcraft series will be taking up a considerable number of time slots, while the much-anticipated Overwatch 2 will only be making a brief appearance.

If the combinations of horror and puzzles tickles your fancy, you might want to check out the newly released Little Nightmares 2. Much like the original, it's a highly atmospheric horror game that will have you explore an utterly bizarre world filled with all sorts of monstrosities, twisted imagery and traps, as well as a good ol' friend to help you along.

Since none of this is easy to explain through words alone, allow me to stop babbling and instead share with you the recently posted launch trailer. It'll clue you in quite quickly on just what Little Nightmares 2 is trying to accomplish. Have a peek:

Over the past few months Blizzard has been putting in a lot of effort to achieve the right balance between the various tanks. While there is still a lot of work that needs to be done, the good news is that all of the balance tweaks are slowly bearing fruit as pretty much every tank is now able to fill out a specific niche on specific maps.

So in order to continue on with this process Blizzard has now brought in an experimental update with a nerf to Wrecking Ball, as well as buffs to Winston and Orisa. And just as a little bonus, the experimental update has also reworked Reaper's shotgun in order to make him a bit more consistent at medium range. Here's what Blizzard is looking to change:

While Vermintide 2 is one of those games that gets immensely more enjoyable alongside a couple of friends, there is still a sizable number of people that primarily play it alongside AI companions. So in order to make their experience a lot more pleasant, as well as prepare things for the upcoming Chaos Wastes expansion, Fatshark has now unleashed a whole assortment of bot AI updates.

First and foremost, bots will now use healing items only when they are under 40% health, while also being more likely to give their healing items to players in need. This alone should make a sizable difference as previously bots would be a massive drain on the group's healing supplies, which as you might imagine, isn't exactly ideal when you're trying to guide them through the harder difficulties.

In an effort to make acquiring new items feel a bit more exciting, Blizzard made endgame gear in Shadowlands far less numerous than in the previous expansions. While this has certainly had the desired effect of making each new piece a noticeable upgrade, the newfound item scarcity has unfortunately also made the whole set of Mythic+ dungeons feel remarkably unrewarding.

This goes doubly so for the lower level dungeons as not only do you have a relatively small chance to get the item you want, but the item itself will be of a low item level and thus easily overpowered by stuff granted through random quests, events or world bosses. In order to sort this problem out, as well as make Mythic+ gearing a lot more pleasant for everyone involved, Blizzard will soon be bringing back the fan-favorite Valor Points!
