Overwatch heroes all have googly eyes for April Fools

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…

A cat picked this week’s hero pools for the Overwatch League

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. It seems like cabin fever is starting to set in though, as this week they've adopted a cat into the analyst's panel to decide on the hero pools. It went…

Overwatch’s new hero Echo is officially “coming soon”

Alright alright, you can stop speculating now because Blizzard have finally confirmed that the long-teased Echo will be Overwatch's next hero. Or, perhaps continue speculating because they've told us next to zilch about her. Although we've seen her pop up in previous animated shorts, today's very brief teaser does not much more than confirm that she's en-route to the game.

The Overwatch League is going online for its spring matches

Despite having to cancel its homestands due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Overwatch League isn't giving up on the 2020 season just yet. Instead of taking their show on the road, Blizzard have set up a brand new schedule to host League matches online. There are obviously some complications with holding competitive events like this online when the teams are so spread across the globe…

Looks like Overwatch has started teasing hero 32

Here we go again. Blizzard are teasing us with the tiniest pieces of Overwatch lore and I can't get enough of it. Yesterday, the Overwatch Twitter account tweeted out a personal log from a Dr. Mina Liao, who's been building an Omnic codenamed "the Athena prototype". Now, I don't know about you, but this all sounds like we're about to get our first proper look…

Overwatch revisits and remixes all three co-op Archives missions

Once more, it's time for the fine folks at Overwatch to put down their guns, stop shooting each other for a moment, pick up their guns again and go blast some robots and armoured goons. It's Archives time, team. With no new story to plug through this time, all three of Overwatch's co-op stories are coming back with wild new variations, alongside the requisite bucket…

Bleeding Edge has a cyborg dolphin in a crab mech and I love him with all my heart

Another day, another scarily-intelligent animal in a four-legged mech with an uncomfortably deep AI voice translating its thoughts. That's right, I'm obviously talking about Wrecking Ball Mekko, the final character revealed for Ninja Theory's upcoming team-based brawler, Bleeding Edge. I know this game is constantly compared to Overwatch, but come on, they've literally put in a character that sounds like a water Hammond. While both…

Overwatch’s 3-2-1 experiment is finished and I’m glad to be rid of it

Overwatch's very first Experimental game mode has come to an end. Over the last week, the game featured a Triple Damage mode as a way for Blizzard to test how they could reduce queue times for folks who want to play damage heroes. For starters, what a great feature the Experimental card is! It's a lot more accessible than the Player Test Realm (PTR), which…

Jeff from the Overwatch team has some wonderful news for you damage players - Blizzard are introducing a 3-2-1 role queue today. It's part of an Experimental game mode that they're implementing to have players test some of things the team are still unsure about even after internal testing. Ah the triple damage meta, you'll know it well if you played Overwatch before all this…

Rumour: Animated Overwatch and Diablo TV adaptations are in the works

We all done tossing coins at mutant sellswords yet? Word on the street is there's an Overwatch animated series and Diablo anime in the pipeline over at ActiBlizzion HQ. Look, there's a rumour about a game series floating about every other month (what's up, Halo?), so take all this with a pinch of salt. But if this one's true? Then yeah, I can see those…

The 10 most unhealthy relationships in games

Happy love day, you disgusting piece of filth. Got you. That was an example of what today’s young people call “neggling”. This is when you are nice and nasty in such quick succession that the body becomes inexplicably aroused. Spasms of lust take over both neggler and negglee, resulting in a paroxysm of extramarital sex and, subsequently, the degeneration of humanity. This is just one…

Someone made a tool that plays the Overwatch piano, so naturally I used it to play Toss A Coin To Your Witcher

Overwatch's Workshop has birthed so many weird and wonderful game modes, and I hate to admit I've not messed around with it as much I'd like to. I did today though, because I discovered a brilliant Workshop tool that lets you play (almost) any song you like on the piano on the Paris map. All you need are some midi files and a dream. And…

The 8 most shocking uses of electricity in games

Imagine a world without electricity. Horrible. What would we use to blend our smoothies? How would we know when uncle Derek hits the metal bit again in the Sunday game of Operation? Electricity has roughly one dozen uses, and yet it is in the realm of videogames when we see its most fantastical and offensive capabilities brought screaming to life. To celebrate the important role…

Overwatch wants to break the meta with Hero Pools and aggressive balancing

There are changes afoot in Overwatch. Blizzard, well aware of long-standing grievances against the state of high-level competitive play, and have come up with two bangers to help breathe some life into their multi-million-dollar team shooter. Overwatch will soon host a new Experimental Card, letting the devs get wet n' wild with whatever balances changes they fancy. Meanwhile, March will arrive with a new Hero…

First identified in China in December, the virus has now killed 170 people. A Chinese League Of Legends tournament also recently was cancelled due to the virus.

Google nab the right to stream Activision esports exclusively on YouTube

You snooze you lose, Twitch. Activision Blizzard this week announced a multi-year deal with Google to stream future esports events solely through a plucky little website called YouTube. By nicking exclusive rights to broadcast big-hitters like the Overwatch and Call Of Duty Leagues, Hearthstone and such, Google hope to kick-start their struggling attempts to kickstart streaming on YouTube and topple Twitch's reign over the medium.

Overwatch celebrates Lunar New Year with face-shifting new skins

How are you with rodents? Lunar New Year returns to Overwatch today, celebrating the Year of the Rat with a wealth of themed cosmetics old and new. It's all gone rather theatrical this year, with heroes like Sombra, Lucio, Brigitte and Moira celebrating musical and damatic styles to engage in the time-honoured tradition of murdering each other to steal flags. Me? I'm with Junkrat up…

For the second year running, the Glaad awards look like they’re missing the mark on celebrating queer representation

Glaad (formerly known as the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) have brought their media awards back for the 31st year, and for the second year in a row they're recognising video games "for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer community and the issues that affect their lives". Last year, Jay Castello wrote about how these video…
