Best Stories

Blizzard turned 25 this week. Happy birthday friend – thanks for all the gaming goodness you’ve given us all over the past two and a half decades.

In other Blizzard news, the Overwatch beta is back baby! Balancing, a progression system, and a new game mode – the game is looking better than ever!

I haven’t seen the movie yet myself, but it makes me happy knowing that Deadpool has been so well received that a sequel has already been approved. Now, about getting around to watching the first… OUT MY WAY KIDS!

Also, Mike Bithell is working on not one, but two new games. That makes us all very, very happy!

Worst Stories

After 13 years, Gametrailers has shut down. There’s no way to sugar-coat that – any gaming organisation closing is always a sad affair.

In other sad news, Riot are retiring Dominion from League of Legends. If you’re a fan of that game mode, you’ve got around 10 days left to enjoy it.

The worst news of the week by far, is that Layers of Fear is out next week. The game looks horrific, and NO GOD PLEASE NO DON’T MAKE ME REVIEW IT!

    My favourite Blizzard game is STILL the warcraft series before it went MMO. Don’t get me wrong, the MMO wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t Warcraft.

      BLACKTHORNE!

      • Pariah

        That’s racist!

        • Commander Admiral Chief

          • Commander Admiral Chief

            What about the back end?

          • Hammersteyn

            That’s a thorny issue

          • Pariah

            There’s a bug in the code that’s been causing critical errors, general DB rollbacks and malfunctions. We’re calling it “The Admiral”.

      • VampyreSquirrel

        Awesome game!

        • Commander Admiral Chief

        MATTY TO REVIEW ALL

        • Pariah

          Dude, that’ll contravene probably all of the Geneva conventions.

          • Commander Admiral Chief

            That is the plan.

            AND MATTY MUST REVIEW IT!!!

        • Hammersteyn

          Well, he’s gotta bathe sometime

          • Commander Admiral Chief

            It has been 15 years, I think it is time again

          • Hammersteyn

            Also it keeps the Sharks at bay

          • Commander Admiral Chief

            Some say, sharks swimming in Australia can smell him when he gets in the ocean in CPT
