Review in Progress: World of Warcraft: Legion

I've been playing World of Warcraft for over 10 years. Sure my raiding days ended in earnest in Cataclysm, but I've kept up with every expansion since its beta phase in 2004, and have played every class in the game -- and on occasion, servi...   read

Blizzard's going to punish people who play Lucioball as other characters

Lucioball is a Rocket League-like game variant for Overwatch, a three-on-three soccer match in honor of the Rio Olympics. It's mostly just a bunch of Lucios pushing a giant ball around. Except, sometimes other characters sneak in and ruin e...   read

This is how the Overwatch Season 1 rewards break down

The inaugural competitive season of Overwatch is winding down soon. How have you fared so far? Aside from some nail-bitters that ended in aggravating sudden-death rounds, I've had a good time with it overall. When the teams are evenly match...   read

Review: StarCraft II: Nova Covert Ops - Mission Pack 2

A lot of people don't want StarCraft II to end. There was, after all, a 12-year gap between sequels, so bringing about a finality of sorts to the package that started with Wings of Liberty in 2010 is a scary prospect. But it's not...   read

Overwatch's Lucioball is really fun, but the Rio-themed Loot Boxes, not so much

Blizzard kind of came out of nowhere with its Overwatch Rio Olympic celebration, complete with a brand new limited-time mode, as well as legendary skins, sprays, emotes, intros, and player icons. Let’s take a look at what you’re...   read

I think it will take people a while to figure out Auriel in Heroes of the Storm

Having first looked at her kit, Auriel really spoke to me. She has a straight-up resurrection spell -- something no other support in the game sports. She also has a very cool mechanic that sort of "brands" another player, allowing her to sa...   read

World of Warcraft's Demon Hunter class is coming on August 9

One of the things I'm most jazzed about when it comes to the World of Warcraft: Legion expansion is the Demon Hunter class. Modeled after Illidan and the hero from Warcraft III, this active playstyle was pretty fun in the alpha/beta pr...   read

Diablo III is getting three more difficulty levels

I remember the pain (read: amazingness) of Diablo III's Inferno mode, pre-nerf. Solo I managed to make it to the final boss of Act 2 before they nerfed it, but I did like the difficulty reworks in general. 2.4.2 looks to be more of the good...   read
