  6. Overwatch is a multiplayer first-person shooter by Blizzard Entertainment. The game emphasizes cooperative gameplay using a cast of various "heroes", each with their own abilities and roles within a team. It was released in May 2016 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Essentially a hero-based shooter, Overwatch assigns players into two teams of six, with each player selecting one of 24 (so far) pre-defined hero characters with unique movement, attributes, and abilities whose roles are divided into four categories: Offense, Defense, Tank, and Support. Players on a team work together to secure and defend control points on a map and/or escort a payload across the map in a limited amount of time. With 25 million players as of January 2017, Overwatch is considered one of the best games released in 2016. It was the fastest selling game digitally during its release month. The game received universal acclaim upon release and numerous accolades, including being awarded Game of the Year at The Game Awards, D.I.C.E. Awards, and Game Developers Choice Awards, as well as from numerous publications. It was considered the best game of 2016 by numerous publications, including IGN, GameSpot, Game Informer and Eurogamer, receiving 98 game of the year awards across critics and reader pollsSince its release, Overwatch has become recognized as an eSport, where in addition to sponsoring tournaments, Blizzard has announced plans to help support professional league play starting in 2017. The cast of playable characters in Overwatch was selected to portray diverse representations of genders and ethnicities, including males, females, and non-human characters such as robots and a gorilla. The need for a diverse cast was important to the developers, and Overwatch's diversity also extends to other character facets. Blizzard has said that some of the characters have LGBT identities. Tracer, the face of the game, was the first identified as one of the LGBT characters via one of the promotional online comics. Similarly, the character of Symmetra is considered autistic by the development team, saying "we think she does a great job of representing just how awesome someone with autism can be." Players choose one of several hero characters, each with their own unique abilities and role classes. The four character roles include: offense characters with high speed and attack but low defense, defense characters meant to form choke points for enemies, support characters that provide buffs and debuffs for their allies and enemies respectively (such as healing or speed alterations), and tank characters that have a large amount of armor and hit points to withstand enemy attacks and draw fire away from teammates. Overwatch features several means of gameplay, including tutorials and practice modes against computer-controlled opponents, casual matchmaking, weekly brawls, custom games, and competitive play. Blizzard has plans to add new characters, maps, new game modes and cosmetics, such as sprays and skins, among other things. Themed limited-time modes and cosmetics have also been made available for events and holidays, such as the 2016 Summer Olympics, Halloween and Christmas. Blizzard began releasing the series of animated shorts in March 2016; the shorts maintained the style of the game's cinematic trailer, which centered on a battle in which Tracer and Winston fought Reaper and Widowmaker in the Overwatch Museum.

Based on Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead comic book series, the series consists of three seasons with five episodes each, and one downloadable episode from Season 1.

However, most of the characters are original to the game. Season 1 centers on university professor and convicted criminal Lee Everett, who rescues and subsequently cares for a young girl named Clementine trying to protect her from the dangers of zombies and dangerous people while preserving her innocence. Season 2 focuses on Clementine herself as she is emotionally and physically challenged by the dangers of the world as her childhood innocence is slowly diminished by the difficult choices she must make.

  15. This week, Hi-Rez Studio's MOBA video game SMITE released a chest called the "Run the World" Chest which featured cosmetic items only for a few of their female characters, a clear allusion to Queen Bey. Your thoughts? Has Beyoncé become so notable that her legacy has reached video games aimed for teenage boys?

  17. More expensive than PS4 Pro (>$400) More powerful than PS4 Pro Will make XB1 and XB360 software run better. At Microsoft's E3 2017 it was announced that they were developing a new video game console with the codename "Project Scorpio". Details were sparse, but Microsoft promised consumers a console that could deliver "true 4K gaming" (oppose to the PS4 Pro which cannot natively display 4K) as well as being the most powerful console on the market. At this time, Microsoft announced that the Scorpio was slated for release Holiday 2017 and would be compatible with all Xbox One games and accessories and made clear that this is not a replacement for the Xbox One which will continue to be supported. Today via the popular gaming tech website Digital Foundry, Microsoft has given us out first glimpse of Project Scorpio. Below are articles, images and videos of the console in action.

  19. Are you excited for the sequel to PS3/PS4's best game? Have you heard about the theories? None of these are spoilers because they are only theories, but people are suggesting that Joel is dead (and is a figment of Ellie's imagination in the trailer - and she's looking to avenge him), that she's pregnant (due to an "Easter egg" in Uncharted 4 where there's a poster that looks like Ellie, pregnant, but with a mask on). Anyway - there's no release date yet but most are saying 2018.
  20. Official release Date: September 8 Beta for PS4: Summer (june) Are you ready guardian?
  21. It's kind of appropriate that the first Pokémon rate we're doing on the new ATRL is for Generation V. Much like how the new ATRL is a fresh new start for the forum, Generation V was a fresh new start for the Pokémon series. The games were set in the NYC-inspired Unova region, a contrast from the Japan-inspired regions the series had stuck with up to that point. Until you've beaten the main story, no Pokémon from previous generations will appear, a first in the series. For the first time, we didn't get a 3rd version that polished the original pair of games, but instead, we got a pair of direct sequels that helped to expand the already grand plot of Black and White. Most importantly, however, we were introduced to 156 new Pokémon, the largest amount introduced in a single generation. Due to there being no old Pokémon during the main story campaign in Black and White, many of the new Pokémon were new takes on concepts originally used for Generation I Pokémon. Because of this, the opinion of the new Pokémon, and the games in general, are highly divisive. Whether you have a positive or negative opinion of them, now is the time to rate all 156 of the Pokémon introduced in Generation V, plus some optional bonuses! The rules: 1. You may rank each Pokémon from 1-10 (round numbers only) 2. You may rank one Pokémon a 0 and two Pokémon 11s. 3. Scores must be sent to me by PM by February 12th at 3PM EST. 4. Comments are appreciated and encouraged!!! Especially considering how polarizing this generation was. 5. Trolling and cheating will get you disqualified from the rate.
