Hello everyone, and Happy Holidays! I’m on vacation and enjoying the lull that comes between Christmas and New Year’s Day. And since I’m on vacation, I’ve had a lot more time to enjoy myself, especially catching up on video games that I didn’t get a chance to play earlier as well as trying out some of the new games that my family decided to give to me this year. Meanwhile, I’ve also been able to keep up with my seasonal anime, and clean most of the house. Unfortunately, Crystal has been feeling a bit under the weather this week, so not everything is perfect. Still, it’s been a darn good week of vacation, and I want to share some of the details with you.Read More
Overwatch has started a new seasonal event called "Overwatch Uprising". Taking place before the fall of Overwatch this event takes place on Kings Row during an Omnic uprising. You can read the primer to the event in the most recent comic here. From the looks of the trailer this looks very akin to the Junkenstein's Monster event from Halloween. Here is the teaser for the event.
So there you have it. So you have until May 1st to get your fill of this event, so get to it!. The world could always use more heroes.

After over 2 years of waiting, Overwatch has finally arrived. Coming from the remains of the “Titan” project, Overwatch is a new entry in the Team-Oriented Role-Based FPS genre. Man, that is what, TORBFPS? Note to self, find better acronym for this. Anyway, until this came the most prosperous game in the this category was Team Fortress 2. And while Team Fortress 2 is still going to be sitting comfortably on its hat filled throne, we finally at least have a game to give it a run for its money.Read More
Today Blizzard took the Overwatch servers live. Ok, they took Overwatch live at 12:00 AM GMT on 05/24/2016, but that was like 40 minutes ago here in Denver. And while I have not had a chance to actually step in the game, I did want to point out something interesting that I found on Eurogamer. Apparently in different parts of the world giant Overwatch action figures have appeared.Read More
Yesterday was the end of the Overwatch open beta. Thousands (guessing) of players jumped and got what was potentially their first taste of Blizzard's first FPS. And it appears to have gone over well. In order to gently let us newbs get a feel for the game you have a standard training tutorial, and then you have team vs AI. Here you are set with a human team vs a set of AI opponents with a set difficulty. Once you have had your feel of the AI, then you can go for some good old human vs human action.Read More
