Will Blizzard Add New Heroes to Overwatch? Currently, Overwatch has 21 playable characters, but players have started to speculate that more characters might be added soon. Though Blizzard has debunked these fan theories, theories that were entirely based off an Overwatch short titled “Hero,” it certainly would make sense that new characters would eventually be added to Overwatch. For now, it seems like Blizzard is content with the game’s diverse group of heroes, but if they w
As a developer who grew up in the 90's, I wasted many hours dreaming up game ideas for the NES, SNES and N64. These were the platforms that I was exposed to at the time, and these are the systems that dictated my career choice. By the time I finally learned the skills needed to actually develop games, these systems had become relics of the past. With such powerful technology available, and platforms that are easier to work with, why bother launching a game on a "dead" system?
Overwatch is fun. Okay, it’s really fun. With its briskly paced gameplay, wide array of unique characters, and tight controls, it’s hard to imagine that people are going to stop playing Overwatch anytime soon. In terms of competitive multiplayer first-person shooters, it is absolutely top-notch, especially because it stands out as something completely unique in the genre.
In the past decade, companies have shelled out FPS after FPS, attempting to perfect a prewritten standa
Our bodies are a constant battlefield, fighting off a wide array of hostile microbial life forms. It's surprising that we don't often see too many games capitalize on the invisible wars taking place right under our skin. Single celled organisms have always fascinated me in how utterly alien and bizarre they are compared to other typical life forms we encounter on a daily basis. These microbial life forms out number us all a trillion to one.

Polygon has found itself at the center of an unusual controversy that has sparked an internet sensation. While playing the newest Doom during their first look review, a representative of the site played the game so poorly that Polygon had to pull the footage due to mass ridicule.
Luckily, several people manged to nab some of their "gameplay" footage and posted it all over YouTube. Below we have a video of some highlights from this disaster presented by Dorkplay played to th
In the year 2036, a fourth dimensional axis with a limitless amount of energy is found and named Dimension W. This energy is drawn-out by cross-dimensional towers created by New Tesla Energy; there are 60 of these towers located across the world in a honeycomb structure, and these towers are used to stabilize the energy from this new dimension. Coils are created to give energy to everything in the world from cars, guns, robots, to everything in-between. Dimension W takes pla
Ever want to build a ship from scratch? Ever want to use this said ship to hunt down sea monsters, and blow other ships apart piece by piece? If your answer to any of those questions is yes, (if you answer "no" to all of these, please get your mental health checked out by your local doctor) then you need to check out The Last Leviathan.
I've played several Minecraft mods involving ship building, and these mods sparked a personal obsession with building boats. Sadly, most of
Battlefield 1 rocked the gaming world by introducing a theater of war that has barely been touched by first person shooters. Before Battlefield 1, Verdun, a WWI game created by a small team, took steam by storm. The game boasted outstanding gameplay, and proved that its WWI setting had more than what it takes to deliver a unique and fun experience. Verdun might have been first to the party, but the game only focuses on more authentic, infantry based combat on the French front
I have been a major fan of both real time and turn based strategy games for as long as I have been interested in gaming, and I have always craved a mobile strategy game I could sink my teeth into. There are many options on the market, and many are great games, BUT none of them have given me that felling of massive armies slamming into each other.
I want to see those massive battles that are usually simulated via stats and numbers actually happen. I crave the feeling of bein
Battlefield 1 has been officially announced along with a brand new in game trailer. After numerous leaks over the past few days, it has been confirmed that the game will take place during World War 1. On their live stream, DICE Studios told viewers to expect this Battlefield to be the biggest and the "most dynamic battle in FPS history." Battlefield 1 will bring tanks, planes, and artillery back to the franchise. It was also announced that there will be an open beta in the ne
