Every expansion, our characters prepare to deal with whatever all-powerful, cosmic villain happens to be threatening their home.

New Overwatch comic Doomfist: Masquerade A new Overwatch comic is now available, and it’s a doozy that brings us up to present day. In Masquerade, we see the events immediately after Doomfist breaks out of prison, as shown in his introductory animated short. From there, it’s a whirlwind of information as Doomfist attempts to reconnect with Talon…with mixed results. Not...

The Queue: Wednesday all over again

It’s Wednesday. I’m tired of this week and maybe you’re tired of this week, too, but Friday still seems a long way away. So in lieu of writing an entertaining and thematically appropriate intro today, I’m going to mimic Rossi and post a picture of a Warrior in the header. Dang, she’s adorable, right?

Now that you’re distracted by that random change of subject, I throw you into today’s questions.


Heroes of the Storm teases its newest hero It’s been a few weeks since Heroes of the Storm revealed Stukov as its latest hero, which means it’s time for another figure to take the stage and steal the title of “newest hero.” While we don’t have an official reveal just yet, we do have a pretty open-ended teaser that was displayed during HGC...

What do you want to see in Chronicle Volume 3? Okay, let’s just get down to it — what do you guys want to see in Chronicle Volume 3? It’s likely going to have lots of stuff about the lead up to the Third War. We’ll probably see how post-Second War Eastern Kingdoms essentially missed the warning signs and how the New Horde got established,...

Heroes of the Storm’s unofficial soundtrack concludes with Assassin jams Heroes of the Storm concludes its unofficial, just-for-fun soundtrack with its theme song picks for the game’s many Assassin characters. In case you’ve missed the rest of the series, they’ve already done Warriors, Supports, and Specialists. Some of Blizzard’s choices here are excellent, like MC Hammer for Tracer. They’re exactly right — Tracer is definitely...

Diablo patch 2.6.0a fixes Necromancer portraits, transmog bugs Diablo 3’s Patch 2.6.0a isn’t the big content-heavy patch that 2.6.0 itself was, but what it brings us is relief from some bugs, updates to things meant to be updated before now, and some cleaning-up of the dust left behind in the wake of a major content patch.

However, the community latched...

The Queue: Ragebow Road

I spent a lot of time playing Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on 200cc with my brothers over the past few days, and, man, is it crazy how fast you go. It’s a blast, but it’s also as frustrating as you’d expect from a Mario Kart game. Worst of all is the newest rendition of Rainbow Road, which has a million ways to fall off and a level which I CANNOT SEEM TO DRIVE WELL ON NO MATTER WHAT.

Grumble grumble. Let’s do some question-answering.

Side bar: Man, you guys asked a lot of questions yesterday. It’s not usually hard to find a solid amount of them without having to pick and choose, but that wasn’t the case yesterday. My apologies if yours didn’t get answered!


BlizzCaps: Take the bird, just spare me! Submitter Archmage Valexion from Twitter doesn’t have a whole lot to say about this one, likely because they’re too terrified of being eaten alive. And can you blame ’em? Brightpaw may be an adorable battle pet, but when you’ve shrunk down to the size of its foot, things go from adorable to terrifying pretty quickly....
