Overwatch’s Mercy gets a new skin for charity

Overwatch’s Mercy gets a new skin for charity

We're used to seeing Overwatch get most of its new skins through the variety of in-game events Blizzard rolls out each year, but with its newest skin, Blizzard is doing things a little differently. The company has announced a new skin for Mercy that isn't found in loot boxes - instead, the only way to get it is to outright purchase it. That's a bit strange for Blizzard, which loves its loot boxes, but then again, this isn't exactly your run-of-the-mill skin.

Switch Pro Controller Steam support launches in beta today

When it comes to the debate about who makes the best controller, there is no clear answer. For years, the answer was simple enough if you were looking to use a controller for PC games, as Xbox 360 and Xbox One controllers offered plug and play functionality that others did not. These days, Valve has complicated the issue by making a variety of controllers compatible through Steam, and today, a new challenger enters the arena: The Switch Pro Controller.

Though Battlefield 1 has been around for a little over a year-and-a-half now, it's still going strong.

Steam Spy returns from death, but admits data is less accurate

Steam Spy returns from death, but admits data is less accurate

Earlier this month, the popular third-party tool Steam Spy was essentially left dead in the water after Valve announced new privacy settings for Steam users, including hiding libraries and profile data from public view by default. This meant Steam Spy, which tracked stats like games' sales numbers and play time, wasn't able to access the data it needed, and was taken offline. But now its creator has brought it back, although with less reliable data.

Logitech G513 Review: A great (but expensive) keyboard for the RGB-obsessed

Logitech G513 Review: A great (but expensive) keyboard for the RGB-obsessed

If you’re looking for an RGB mechanical keyboard, there are plenty out there to choose from. Many gaming keyboards these days have started using mechanical switches instead of membrane ones, and while most of those seem to use some kind of Cherry MX switches, Logitech has taken things one step further by developing its own switch, dubbed Romer-G. These switches feature in the Logitech G513 Keyboard, the more expensive successor to the G413, and in fact they now come in two different varieties: tactile and linear. How does Romer-G hold up, though? Beyond that, is the G513 a gaming keyboard worth its somewhat high asking price?

A new multiplayer map is coming to Blizzard's Overwatch in the near future, and PC players can now take it for an early spin on the game's PTR, or public test server.
