Earlier today, a new Super Monkey Ball game titled Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania was listed on The Australian Classifications board, seemingly indicating a new entry in the long-running franchise is coming. If this leak follows the same timeline as the last entry in the Super Monkey Ball series--which was rated by the board on July 16, 2019 and released only three months later--it's possible game could be just around the corner. The news comes nearly a year after the game was teased by voice actor Matt Brian, who has shared multiple Instagram posts indicating that a new game is in development.
If confirmed, Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania will be the first original Super Monkey Ball game released on consoles in nearly a decade, a welcome sight for weary Sega fans who might have been a bit let down by 2019's Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz HD. Despite Banana Blitz HD's reception, its release could mean something exciting for the next entry in the series: a release across all consoles and PC.
For those unfamiliar with the first entry in the series, simply titled Super Monkey Ball, it was the first Sega title published on a Nintendo console due to the failure of the Dreamcast. The puzzle game received high praise from critics, with GameSpot's review stating "GameCube owners couldn't ask for a better party game to play with friends." In addition to providing a fun multiplayer experience with mini-games such as Monkey Target, the series also boasts a challenging single-player campaign.Continue Reading at GameSpot
Developer Larian Studios has released a new hotfix for Baldur's Gate 3. Hotfix 10 is aimed at balancing the loaded dice feature added in Patch 4. Previously, turning on the feature could accidentally doom you to terrible luck.
The perk of loaded dice is to ensure that you're not completely reliant on chance. If you get a string of bad luck, the loaded dice will favor you to have a few good rolls. However, folks have been complaining that the loaded dice are too weighted to the adverse effect as well, forcing streaks of bad luck on players if they happen to get several good rolls in a row.
"We noticed in your feedback that the RNG wasn't feeling fun for you," Larian Studios wrote in a blog post. "We've seen the dice described as being harsh, cursed, rigged and someone said the RNG was downright evil. We want you to have the best experience possible when playing the game and so the changes in [April 15's] hotfix are here to help with your hit chance, if you're playing with loaded dice."Continue Reading at GameSpot
The Dora Milaje, the Wakandan royal guard, are not to be trifled with, and we all knew when they appeared in last week's episode of Falcon and the Winter Soldier that an explosive battle was on the way. Ahead of Falcon and the Winter Soldier's penultimate episode, Marvel Studios has released a featurette spotlighting Wakanda's fiercest warriors.
The video looks to director Kari Skogland, as well as stars Anthony Mackie (Sam Wilson/Falcon), Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier), Florence Kasumba (Ayo), and Wyatt Russel (John Walker/new Captain America), for their thoughts on the fighters.
"When we show up, you don't know how many are around," Kasuma says, speaking to the guards' identical uniforms and looks combined with their strategic prowess in intentionally concealing their numbers.Continue Reading at GameSpot
