Anthem overhaul
It’s hardly news that developer BioWare’s online multiplayer action role-playing game Anthem wasn’t a hit, even after bringing numerous updates to fix it. Instead of calling it quits, BioWare has decided to give the game a complete overhaul, changing its core gameplay mechanics and bringing new challenges with meaningful rewards.

Knives on
With the surprise critical success of director Rian Johnson’s Knives Out, starring Daniel Craig as the lovable, crime-solving deep south investigator Benoit Blanc, what doesn’t come as a surprise is it getting the thumbs up from the big boss at Lionsgate for a sequel. What can we expect? It’s still early days, but we’re sure Craig will have another sequel to solve.
