Overwatch Mercy update turns her into an unstoppable angel of death

Yesterday, Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan took to YouTube to announce some big changes coming to everyone's favorite guardian angel, Mercy. The changes that were revealed certainly weren't minor, shaking up the way Mercy plays dramatically. These changes were made in response to way many Mercy fans were playing - lying in wait for their team to wipe and then coming in with a big Resurrec to bring them all back to life.

Secret of Mana is getting a full 3D remake next year

When we're talking about the greatest RPGs ever made, we usually hear the same select number of games come up: Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy VII, Baldur's Gate, so forth and so on. One RPG that probably doesn't come up as much as it should is Secret of Mana. Those among us who missed the Secret of Mana boat back in 1993 are going to get another chance to experience it again, as Square Enix has announced a full 3D remake of the game is coming next year.

Shenmue III’s first teaser trailer was worth the wait

It's been a long time coming, but Shenmue III's first teaser trailer is finally here. It may seem a little weird to read that, especially considering that Shenmue fans have been waiting an incredible 16 years for this game.

Age of Empires IV announced, a sequel that’s a decade long overdue

Age of Empires IV announced, a sequel that’s a decade long overdue

There are very few games that can claim to fame and even active fans over a span of decades. One of those is the Age of Empires franchise. First released in 1997, it was hailed as a mix of Sid Meier’s Civilization’s historic focus and Warcraft’s real-time strategy gameplay. It’s last major installment, however, was back in 2005 and fans have all but given up hope that Microsoft would ever revive this PC title, especially with its focus on consoles. At Gamescom, Microsoft proved them wrong and not only announced Age of Empires IV but also Definitive Editions of older titles to help fans bid their time for the game’s arrival.

Jurassic World Evolution is the game I’ve always wanted (so please don’t screw it up)

Jurassic World Evolution is the game I’ve always wanted (so please don’t screw it up)

Jurassic World Evolution is a game I've been waiting years to play. To understand why, we need to go all the way back to 2003, when a long-forgotten game called Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis launched on Xbox, PlayStation 2, and PC. Operation Genesis, like Jurassic World Evolution, tasked you with creating your own Jurassic Park, and it was a sublime experience that was sadly limited by console technology at the time.

Final Fantasy 15 PC release finally announced – watch the 4K trailer here

We expected Gamescom to hold its share of big gaming announcements, but one of the most surprising (and exciting) ones is the reveal that Final Fantasy 15 will be coming to PC. Announced by Square Enix during a special NVIDIA event, a PC version of the game had previously only been hinted at. It seems that the PC version of Final Fantasy 15 may very well become the definitive version, with NVIDA calling this port the "highest-end edition" of the game.

Mass Effect: Andromeda ends single-player support, no future patches coming

It looks like the troubled life of Mass Effect: Andromeda is over only five months after release — for fans of the sci-fi RPG's single-player mode, at least. EA and developer BioWare have announced that there will be no additional support for single-player going forward, meaning no story-based DLC or feature updates, and that the 1.10 update released in late July would be the last patch.

Wii U Compustick mod puts Windows 10 inside a handheld

Wii U Compustick mod puts Windows 10 inside a handheld

While portable gaming devices have long been in existence, the Nintendo Switch sparked the imagination of many makers and modders. While some of those have resorted to replicating the experience using a Raspberry Pi as the base, modder Banjo Kazooie went down a road less trodden. What he did was to basically stuff an Intel Compute Stick inside the shell of a Wii U handheld to create a gaming PC you can take with you and play on almost anywhere.

Blizzard is keeping the Battle.net brand after all

Blizzard is keeping the Battle.net brand after all

Well, that was fast: less than a year after announcing that it would drop its Battle.net branding, Blizzard has revealed that it will be sticking around after all. Even though Blizzard had already started the process of killing off Battle.net, it looks like it's a fair bit harder to part with such a popular brand than the company had anticipated. So, the Battle.net branding will stick around, though it'll still receive some tweaks.
