Opening Overwatch loot boxes or Halo 5 REQ packs adds a special drama to a gaming session. The crate shakes. A jingle chimes. Lights peek out from the cracks. It swells with potential. Game developers make subtle design decisions that stoke the hope that keeps players opening mystery boxes, crates and packs. And not…
According to Overwatch lore, D.va is a pro gamer who serves and inspires her country. In real life, D.va’s role is starting to mirror her in-game persona, as she becomes a symbol of hope for women in South Korea.
In a now-famous Overwatch video, a Korean player is banned mid-match because of his shameless hacking. He’s streaming himself as Widowmaker, effortlessly flinging himself across the map and landing perfect headshots in-air. A Hanzo approaches, and in a moment, he’s gone. Widowmaker’s crosshairs, which were feet away…
The latest episode of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD featured a slightly unhinged Australian demolitions expert. You can probably see where this is going.
The hunt for info on Overwatch’s next hero, a stealthy hacker named Sombra, has brought over 7,000 fans into Blizzard’s alternate reality game (ARG). But some bystanders have become unwilling participants in the ARG as well, as players hungry for Overwatch’s hacker have partaken in some hacking of their own.
I’d originally planned to run our World of Warcraft: Legion review today, but due to circumstances firmly under my control, it’s now going to run Monday morning. The fact that I’m still playing the game every night probably didn’t help.
Most Overwatch characters are not related to each other, but as far as the community is concerned? The roster might as well be a big ‘ol family. Soldier 76, with his grumpy gruffness and ample experience in the field, is of course the dad.
Get ready for heal-snipes. Blizzard today revealed the next playable character in Overwatch, and as had been rumored, it’s a long-range healer. Meet Ana.
A major part of Overwatch’s appeal is character personality, but not because they’re overflowing with it, per se.

Blizzard gives us their motivation, a bit of backstory, and some banter, but players’ imaginations are…
Years of hollow hype and months of flashy trailers aimed at getting non-World of Warcraft players into theater seats left me with little hope that I would enjoy Duncan Jones’ Warcraft movie. Well, surprise.
Will World of Warcraft legacy servers ever happen? Are content updates going to drop more frequently? And when are we getting that ship expansion?
Maybe Facebook was paying attention when Elon Musk tweeted that he loves Overwatch. Just a day later, the site said it’s working on a game-streaming feature that would let us watch from the News Feed as Musk battle those particular robots. COINCIDENCE? Well, definitely, but that doesn’t mean this isn’t Facebook’s…
Elon Musk may think we’re all living in a video game, but the man still has suggestions for which video game we should play while we’re all stuck in this simulation. And of course the game involves fighting sentient AI.
Overwatch is to big-budget release bonanzas what eclipses are to the rest of the sky. It’s a multi-million dollar production fueled by laser-targeted marketing. Even Game of Thrones had to glom onto its underbelly to avoid being unceremoniously forgotten. Anyway one of its most crucial sounds was made by a beer can.
For close to a decade, details about the multiplayer game that Blizzard called Project Titan have remained secret and elusive. Today we’d like to change that.
Angel-winged Mercy having sex with the devilish Reaper. Spunky mech pilot D.Va pleasuring herself in front of a webcam. Blindingly speedy Tracer caught in Widowmaker’s web. Overwatch porn has been all over the Internet for months, though the game’s creators at Blizzard don’t seem to eye it too favorably.
Coming this October from the author of the official Game of Thrones cookbook, World of Warcraft: The Official Cookbook will have you searching “where can I buy canned haggis” in Google more often than you already do.
Against my better instincts, I’m crossing my fingers for the Warcraft movie. It’s being directed by the guy behind Moon and Source Code. He is also technically a Bowie! If all else fails, though, when the dust settles, we’ll have at least gotten this cool in-game trailer out of it.
