Players of Baldur’s Gate 3 Take Advantage of Raphael to Acquire Hellish Armor in Act 1

Players are still raving about Baldur’s Gate 3, an epic role-playing game developed and published by Larian, over six months after its release. In the first few hours of the game, an exploit was found that, for really determined players, will allow them to not only defeat a villain quicker than planned but also obtain a powerful piece of equipment as a reward.

One of the several monsters that devour the landscape in BG3 is Raphael, a tormentor who offers to care for the player’s tadpole in exchange for their immortal soul. It is rather astonishing how in several locations players may encounter the elegant Cambion, as any player who has played through the game’s opening act multiple times will confirm.

The difficulty of the assignment lies in the fact that players must dodge Raphael while leveling up to defeat the monster. Raphael will show up in your camp at some point; if you confront him there while keeping him in check, he will be unable to use his teleportation abilities. In any other location, the sly serpent will scurry. At launch, a comparable strategy would grant early access to a large amount of experience, but Larian fixed the problem with a patch.

As Redditor Hope_bringer pointed out (with the help of TheGamer), Raphael is once again available in the menu. However, this time around, he drops the ridiculously strong Helldusk armor, an excellent and top-tier piece of equipment. Anyone may wear it since it grants heavy armor proficiency, an armor class of 21, flame immunity, flight, and the power to inflict burning back on opponents when you succeed at a saving throw. It’s just mind-blowing, and no amount of arguing with Commander Zhalk about his Everburn Blade—a very powerful starting weapon in any game—will be able to stop you from achieving your goal.

Today I found out you can knock out a certain character in the camp, and they will drop a very very OP late game item

When you play Baldur’s Gate 3 again, will you be dedicated enough to make the most of this exploit?

Critics and fans alike went crazy for Amazon’s take on the famous role-playing game series Fallout. There were a lot of nominations for 16 Emmy awards, including Best Actor and Outstanding Drama Series. The show was able to reach audiences outside of gamers and got a lot of attention from the industry.

Eurogamer has been keeping track, and now that all the votes are in, Fallout is tied for fifth place with 23 nominations for the 76th Emmy Awards, which are put on by the US Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. With 25, The Bear has the most nominations, followed by True Detective: Night Country with 23, and Shogun with 19.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Walton Goggins is up for Best Actor for his performance as The Ghoul. Although games will always be our first choice, it’s great that adaptations of games don’t have to be awful, and we can’t wait for the next season of the shows.

Are you surprised by how well Amazon’s version of Fallout has done in the mainstream? Is the curse of movies based on video games finally over? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.
