Overwatch Now Has Over 30 Million Players

Our Game of The Year for 2016 just keeps growing! Overwatch, last year’s stand out team-based FPS now has over 30 million players! I am elated to say the least and it’s crazy how much support will still be coming to the title throughout the year. I myself have sunk so many hours into this great game and I see no sign of stopping anytime soon. It’s as good as gaming gets my friends.

Let us know if you are one of the 30 million people who have Overwatch!

Call of Duty WWII Box Art Revealed


The box art for the next Call of Duty has been revealed so check it out above. The box art confirms that the game will go back to the series roots showcasing a WWII theme. As we can see from the box art above, PS4 owners will be getting new content 30 days before others.  I am very happy with this change and cannot wait to see what the developer will do.  Last years infinite warfare brought gamers to space but it was a bit disappointing for players. 

I am eager for this… Are you?
