Overwatch’s Zenyatta finally walks and it’s really weird

Overwatch’s Zenyatta finally walks and it’s really weird

One of Overwatch's most popular characters is Zenyatta, the zen healer who sits permanently in a full lotus position, never breaking it despite all his healing and fighting action. He floats in the air, seemingly at peace even when action is going down. Some game fans have asked Blizzard to enable the character to walk, though, and the company has given them what they wanted...sort of.

Nintendo 3DS sales take surprising turn amid Switch success

Nintendo 3DS sales take surprising turn amid Switch success

With Nintendo looking to turn the Switch into the next Wii, it's tempting to assume that the 3DS is entering end-of-life. After all, we've had indications that the Pokemon and Fire Emblem series - two of the biggest 3DS franchises - are soon to jump ship to the Switch. Despite that, it would appear that the 3DS still has some fight left in it, as the latest numbers from the NPD Group paint a pretty encouraging picture for January sales.

Final Fantasy 15 Windows Edition gets a weird Half-Life crossover

Square Enix is no stranger to offering bonus content for its games, and that focus has definitely held true for Final Fantasy 15.

Warcraft III remaster rumored as patch upgrades original

By this point, most Warcraft fans have likely given up on hope on ever receiving a proper Warcraft IV, but doesn't mean Blizzard can't revisit existing games.

Super Smash Bros tipped for Switch release this year

The Nintendo Switch, as many of you are likely already aware, has enjoyed an excellent first year of retail availability. Though that first year isn't technically over yet, it will be soon, as the first anniversary of the Switch's launch is coming up on March 3. It's then that we begin what Nintendo itself has described a "crucial" second year for the Switch, and the hope is that we'll see just as much first party support as we did in the console's first year.

Virtual Reality: why it still hasn’t taken a hold

Virtual Reality: why it still hasn’t taken a hold

For a technology that’s being billed by some as the next wave in computing, virtual reality, and even augmented or mixed reality, is pretty slow in coming to shore. Qualcomm just recently sang praises about how its Snapdragon 845 will power future wireless VR headsets. It seems to have fallen on deaf ears however, and if CES is any indication, interest around VR, AR, and MR may have waned considerably. The technologies definitely have promise, so why are very few people biting? Because as grand as the promise of virtual reality may be, it might, in fact, be still a bit too grand for use today.

Super Mario Odyssey DLC adds Luigi, outfits, filters

Super Mario Odyssey DLC adds Luigi, outfits, filters

Nintendo may have once been chided for being slow to move, but now it’s doing things right on schedule. As promised last month, one of the platform’s most successful games is getting an update today. Yes, Luigi makes an appearance but really only that, an appearance. Luigi’s Balloon World has arrived and while it does offer something to do after you’ve finished the main game, it’s going to be more of a way to past the time rather than an engrossing new piece of content. Then again, it’s a small-ish update that you’re getting for free.

My PlayStation lets you browse PSN profiles online

Sony has taken PSN in a direction few of us were probably expecting today. The company has launched a new service called "My PlayStation," which allows you to access some parts of the PlayStation Network through a broswer on a PC, Mac, or on mobile devices. At the moment, there isn't a whole lot you can do using My PlayStation, but it still has some basic features in place.
