7 Very Queer Overwatch Skins We Will Never Actually See in the Game

Overwatch is known for is its bright and imaginative hero skins (for better and for worse, sometimes).

Released in 2016, Blizzard’s team-based shooter was pitched as the antithesis to the popular military shooters of the time. The official site…

Bastion, Overwatch‘s resident chirpy turret on legs, is always accompanied by his feathered companion, Ganymede. And when players change Bastion’s skin, Ganymede gets a new look too — the little guy’s been a crow, a bluebird, and even a hovering drone. But which of these skins is the best? We…

5 Games That Need Dating Sim Spin-Offs as Soon as Humanly Possible

I think every games journalist can agree: we all have one video game character that we seriously need to smooch. Sure, classic visual novels like Clannad and Katawa Shoujo — even kinkier stuff like Christine Love’s Ladykiller in a Bind — scratch that itch to go on a date with somebody.

League of Legends Ignores Canon to Tell a Better Story

There’s a shot in the League of Legends “Awaken“ cinematic that does more than you’d expect. A door is kicked in to reveal a smoky hallway cramped with armored soldiers passing by the frame. It’s dark, it’s metallic, and it’s cold. The shield-bearing men pour past the camera and their leader — at half their…

Soldier: 76 Is Gay, but Overwatch Still Makes Fans Work for Queer Representation

Overwatch received a new tie-in short story, titled “Bastet,” recently.
