Good news for Hideo Kojima as he will receive the BAFTA Fellowship. According to BAFTA press release the Fellowship is the highest accolade to people who contributed to film, games or TV.

Last week with little to none fanfare Larian Studios drop the official opening cinematic for their upcoming game Baldur’s Gate 3. The Trailer set up what is going to happen in the third installment in this legendary game series and it looks fantastic.
