New Overwatch animated short: Rise and Shine featuring Mei A new Overwatch animated short has just been released. In Rise and Shine, we get to see the backstory of Mei, who originally appeared on the scenes through a series of journal updates on the Overwatch website. But although we had an inkling of her backstory, we never really had the full picture. It’s…not the...

In his job interview with Blizzard, the Lich King is all of us Many people who play Blizzard games have given at least a passing thought to applying for one of their job openings. Sure, I only have a B. A. in English, but I could probably be an esports event technician, or whatever. The skills I’ve developed writing about pet battles would definitely serve me well enough...




We want to watch the show based on this fan-made Overwatch TV series trailer From the people at Lion Montages, who brought us a pretty sweet Overwatch movie trailer, we now have an even sweeter Overwatch Netflix series trailer. These are obviously fan made and do not signify an actual Overwatch movie or Netflix series, but they make me wish for one or both of these things so very,...

Real-life Roadhog chain hook from Man at Arms: Reforged If you guys remember, a while back we featured this awesome working recreation of Genji’s sword from Overwatch done by the guys at Man at Arms: Reforged. If you’re not familiar with the web series, Man at Arms: Reforged showcases talented blacksmiths and craftspeople making real working replicas of weapons from games, anime, and even...

Symmetra and Thor arm wrestle for Sombra’s affections If you remember a while back we did a post about Overwatch’s voice actors being kinda silly. Well, apparently the hits just keep coming and now they’ve dragged the Norse God of Thunder into it. So, it happened: #Thor vs. #Symmetra, arm wrestling for Sombra's #boop.

Horde Mode Episode 4: Welcome to the machine On this week’s leveling stream, the Horde team switches tactics and continents, resuming their leveling in Hillsbrad Foothills. After handing out some perfectly good quests to some less than competent adventurers, the team has to clean up the mess they made. From there, it only seems natural to go clean up the mess in Gnomregan,...

Baewatch brings Overwatch and Baywatch together With the new Baywatch movie recently released (and did we really need a Baywatch movie?), it’s only right that Overwatch get the same treatment. Even if it’s not right, the fans at Deerstalker Pictures have made an Overwatch video in classic Baywatch style. And of course it’s called Baewatch. As you would expect from a Baywatch parody, there are a...



Jeff Kaplan spills behind the scenes insight on the creation of Overwatch’s heroes Overwatch Game Director Jeff Kaplan recently sat down with the team at IGN to check out some of the history behind the game’s characters. Admittedly, not all of the stories are particularly exciting (Hanzo’s ultimate used to be called the caterpillar because that’s what it looked like before the team finished the final animation), but...

Horde Mode Episode 3: See you on Argus On this week’s leveling stream, the team returns to Azshara — only to discover that despite the lack of heirlooms, they’ve managed to quickly out-level the available quests. Left with several options, the team decides to hit a couple of dungeons and then head for Hillsbrad Foothills after helping a polite lizard find her way...

Horde Mode Episode 2: Opposite Country It’s been a lengthy hiatus but at long last, the team has been reunited for another leveling stream! Now that the gang’s all here, it’s back to Azshara, where the hills are lined with land mines, where the ghosts are angry, and goblin dreams come true. It might not be the most glamorous of beginnings,...

Challenging the Nexus, 2.0 Style: Leveling Bonanza Episode 83 On this week’s leveling stream the team is still down two members. Rather than level ahead, Alex, Anne, and Mitch instead headed to the Nexus to take on the Nexus Challenge 2.0 in Heroes of the Storm. It’s a Heroes 2.0 adventure complete with new hero Genji, the Hanamura map, Loot Chests, and the kind...

Heroes 2.0 hands-on with Soe and Tony Hsu Heroes 2.0 is going live in Heroes of the Storm next week on April 25, and as a lead-in to its launch, Heroes has shared a hands-on video with some of the new content. Associate Esports Manager Soe Gschwind-Penski (also known as Tracer In Real Life) checks out Genji and Hanamura alongside Senior Game Producer...

For the Horde: WoW Leveling Bonanza Episode 82 It’s time for the start of a brand-new adventure! On this week’s leveling stream the team starts all over again, tackling brand new characters and a brand new leveling experience. No heirlooms, no boosts, just five bright-eyed new members of the Horde looking to reach max level through quests and dungeons using whatever we find...

Danny Pudi’s Hearthstone adventures come to an end in last Wonders of Un’Goro video Are you ready for adventure? We hope so, because Un’Goro Crater (and Hearthstone’s Journey to Un’Goro expansion) is packed with it — as poor Professor Doyle is about to find out for himself. But perhaps more interesting than Doyle’s ill-fated expedition is the fact that he’s played by Community’s Danny Pudi. That’s right: Abed has...

Lederhosen Effect: WoW Leveling Bonanza Episode 81 While leveling Alliance has had its ups and downs, we’ve finally managed to hit every goal on our leveling bucket list — and more!
