It has been almost two months since the release of Alani, the Eldrid healer and 26th Battleborn hero. The small community of people still invested in Gearbox's FPS/MOBA have spent a lot of that time wondering "When are we going to get Pendl...   read

Overwatch
We all knew a support was coming to Overwatch, but I didn't expect Pharah's mom, and I especially didn't expect her to be in playable state on the PTR today.

A word of advice about Taiwan in June: don't wear a sports jacket unless it is made out of a beach towel. It's like 95 degrees and humid in the capital, and I made the mistake of: (a) not sleeping to catch a 4AM airport taxi, (b) being relu...   read
