Throwback: World of Warcraft and the 2008 Beijing Olympics Throwback: World of Warcraft and the 2008 Beijing Olympics

A few days ago Blizzard launched a limited Overwatch event, the “Summer Games,” themed around the 2016 Rio Olympics.

It’s 1:15AM, I just got off work half an hour ago. However, that’s not enough to stop me from doing the finial recap of Arrow for the season, especially since you other commentators make it interesting. Let’s talk the Arrow finale! Spoilers, ahoy.

Arrow 4.14: Code of Silence Arrow 4.14: Code of Silence

Arrow 4.13: Sins of the Father Arrow 4.13: Sins of the Father

Soooo...I’m not even sure what I can say about this episode that isn’t a spoiler. It was action packed and invoked many loud reactions. Is that spoilery? Is this a long enough lede? Close enough, spoilers start now.

New Overwatch Character Shows Blizzard Really Is Listening

After the initial cast of Overwatch was revealed, some folks, like feminist critic Anita Sarkeesian, lamented that the female characters in the team-based shooter were all svelte. Today, Blizzard revealed two new characters, and one of them is a direct response to those types of criticisms.
