Tracer kicks off the Overwatch Nendoroid line

Before this breaks down into a thread of replies about who from the Overwatch cast we most want to have in toy form -- is it too late? Am I already out of time here? -- I just want to point out that this upcoming Nendoroid figure of Tracer ...   read

Roadhog and Winston just got tweaks in Overwatch along with Bastion

Blizzard shared some patch notes three days ago in what I'm referring to as the "Bastion patch." Currently in PTR, the update adds CTF to the mix, as well as a server browser. In terms of hero changes the big alterations involve Bastion, wh...   read

How does Lucio's Overwatch kit transfer to Heroes of the Storm?

It's my dream to one day see the entire cast of Overwatch present in Heroes of the Storm. Don't get me wrong, there needs to be a lot more love sooner than later for franchises like Diablo (I'm looking at you Mephisto) and Starcra...   read

Hearthstone's next dinosaur-riddled expansion may have leaked early

Blizzard had a great 2016; Overwatch was our game of the year, and I heard almost nothing but positive things about World of Warcraft: Legion. With all that going on, it'd be easy to overlook HearthStone, which also put out a...   read

The buffs for Overwatch's Bastion sound exciting

As I was just saying the other day, Overwatch's Bastion is woefully underrepresented at the pro level. The robot just isn't up to snuff given how easy it is to counter, and only really sees play on Watchpoint: Gibraltar. Blizzard is seeking...   read

Overwatch just hit the 25 million player mark

It's closing in on the one year anniversary of Overwatch in May (!), and I feel like Blizzard's first new IP in over a decade managed to already accomplish so much. It has a legion of fans behind it creating crafts, cosplay costumes, and a ...   read

Don't like Overwatch's Bastion? Well he might be getting a buff soon

Bastion, the character that can be easily countered and has always been a mid-tier winrate hero at best at all levels of play, has been a sore spot since his debut. Many players who don't go out of their comfort zone to try new counters thi...   read

It's time Heroes of the Storm took another look at Brawls

Heroes of the Storm's "Brawls" were a good idea when they were originally pitched months ago. Providing something akin to what League of Legends had with Dominion (a now defunct arena-type game), or better yet, Blizzard's own "Brawls" ...   read

Although they're still not sharing subscribers numbers (I tried!), Blizzard is quite happy with the reaction to World of Warcraft: Legion. It managed to strike a chord critically, sure, but a lot of fans who were disenfranchised by Draenor&...   read
