Overwatch, as some of you may already know, has turned out to be one of the most popular releases of the year thus far.

StarCraft might be getting an HD remaster

StarCraft might be getting an HD remaster

In the realm of real-time strategy games, next to nothing beats the original StarCraft (unless you happen to be more of a WarCraft fan). Released way back in 1998, the game still has a dedicated fan base around the world, and it still sees professional play in a lot of gaming tournaments. It would appear that Blizzard has decided to dust off the old game and give it in an HD remaster, if new reports are to be believed.

Disney brings Aladdin and other 16-bit classics to PC, Mac, and Linux

If you're like me and grew up in the 16-bit era of video games, then you'll probably remember Disney's collection of platformers fondly. Those games not only showed that good movie tie-ins can exist, but also what good platformers are made of. Make no mistake: Disney definitely had a hot streak back in the mid-90s, and now through its partnership with GOG.com, we can relive a few of those memories on PC.

Disney Infinity servers close in March 2017, PC & mobile versions unplayable in September

Back in May, Disney announced that it was ending production of its expansive Disney Infinity game series as it exited game publishing entirely. Now the company has detailed the shut down process for the game's online services, and simply put, it's a bit messy. Disney Infinity was released on so many different platforms, with several ways to buy it on PC alone, and it seems like there's different stages of the shut down for each version.

Hearthstone’s latest adventure invites players to spend One Night in Karazhan

Hearthstone’s latest adventure invites players to spend One Night in Karazhan

Just a few months after the release of Hearthstone's latest expansion, Whispers of the Old Gods, Blizzard is ready to release the game's next single-player adventure. The mini-expansion, named One Night in Karazhan, will have players travelling to the tower of Karazhan to attend a disco-themed party thrown by the Magus Medivh. Apparently, disco never died in the lands of Azeroth, and we're kind of okay with that.

That's going to be disappointing to hear for eager gamers who have already had to deal with delays, but it's not as bad as you may initially think.

Gears of War 4 will feature PC-only enhancements

Gears of War 4 will feature PC-only enhancements

Back when Microsoft announced that Gears of War 4 would be coming to PC, we're guessing more than a few gamers assumed it would be a direct port of the Xbox One version. While it may be a little pessimistic to assume that right off the bat, it also wouldn't be entirely unfounded given Microsoft's hot and cold history with PC gamers. As it turns out, however, it looks like PC players will have a number of enhancements at their disposal when the game launches in October.
