April Fools is not a day to scare or mislead people with mean tricks. April Fools is for lighthearted pranks, and silly jokes. April Fools is a day to stick googly eyes on all of your video game characters. If you load up Overwatch today, you might notice that Blizzard have done exactly that - it's not just the heroes that have received the googly…

Steam will delay some game updates to help free up your bandwidth

Almost everyone is stuck at home right now due the Covid-19 lockdown, and whether you're working or gaming, your internet bandwidth is likely being soaked up a lot more than normal. Steam is one of the worst offenders when it comes to devouring bandwidth, often using a bit more than its fair share. So to help out with how much it's using, Valve are rescheduling…

The Overwatch League casters, hosts and players alike are all holed up at home for the time being, with matches taking place online while the world waits for the Covid-19 pandemic to run its course.

You can use a secret pistol in Doom Eternal through the power of console commands

Now, I'm not entirely sure why you'd want to bother using a pistol when Doom Eternal starts you off with a shotgun, but hey, there's one hidden in the game's files anyway if you fancy a go with it. It's a proper working weapon by the looks of things, just one that never made it into the final version of the game. You can get…

Hi-Rez’s Rogue Company is coming out this summer

Hi-Rez Studio's upcoming team-based shooter, Rogue Company, got its very first gameplay trailer, showing off... uh, I don't really know what it's showing off. Seems like a run-of-the-mill third-person shooter to be honest. Hi-Rez also made Smite and Paladins and people quite liked those games, maybe they'll like this one too? At least we can get a better idea of what it's all about today,…

Behold this horrific new pizza skin for Mozzie in Rainbow Six Siege

There's something very unnerving about anthropomorphic food. Which is why I'm concerned that Pizza Mozzie will now haunt my dreams forever. Rainbow Six Siege has a brand new Operator set available through Twitch Prime you see - I had to look at it, so now you do too. "The Cheesie One has arrived!" Ubisoft tweeted.

Ninja Theory’s Bleeding Edge is out right now

Remember Bleeding Edge? It's that punky 4v4 multiplayer brawler made by none other than Ninja Theory, the creators of Hellblade. It seems like a strange heel turn after Hellblade, and we'll all get to find out just what it's all about today. The cartoony colourful style is appealing to my Overwatch-obsessed brain, so I'm quite looking forward to hopping onto Game Pass to give it…

Animal Crossing: New Horizons may only be on Switch, but that will not stop me from finding ways to talk about it in relation to my fave PC games.
