BATTLEBORN – ERNEST SKILLS OVERVIEW

Honor. Duty. Explosions! Ernest is prepared for just about any threat – and this is in no small part thanks to his grenade launcher. The various explosive ordinance rounds help Ernest lean on the offensive or provide a mean line of defense for his team.

Even though I have yet to play Battleborn, I would still like to visit the game sometime down the road. I have a feeling it may go “free to play” soon or be really cheap come holiday time… It still catches my interest from time to time but I want Borderlands 3!!!!!

Check out the new Ernest Skills Overview trailer and let us know what you think. Enjoy.

Blizzard has announced that the 2nd season for the competitive mode in Overwatch will start on September 6th. The news broke via a Tweet and we couldn’t be more excited. If you are an avid reader of this website, you will already know how much we love Overwatch. While it may come off as “just another FPS,” the game oozes with character and if you have ever checked out the animated shorts, they are truly a thing of beauty. I love hearing more about the characters and their backstories and cannot wait to see what’s in the pipeline for the popular shooter.

Let us know who your favorite character is! Mine is still Tracer although Genji and Bastion are moving up the list as well.

NEW REINHARDT SKINS COMING TO OVERWATCH

There are some brand new Reinhardt skins headed to Overwatch in the near future. No “official” release date has been given but expect the new skins to hit within the next couple of weeks. Overwatch has become my game of the year for 2016 and I am always excited to hear any news regarding the game. In case you missed the latest animated short for the title, click here and give it a watch. It’s the emotional back story for Bastion and is masterfully done…

An all new trailer for the platforming title Yooka-Laylee has been released, so be sure to check it out above. Yooka-Laylee is hoping to bring back some classic platforming gameplay to PS4, XBOX One and Wii U (and presumably NX) in 2017 and things are shaping up rather nicely. Team17, founded in 1990, are a fully independent Video Game Developer and Games Label, responsible for the Worms™ series, Beyond Eyes, Sheltered and many more.

BRAND NEW OVERWATCH MAP REVEALED

Revealed at gamescom 2016, Eichenwalde is an Assault/Escort hybrid map set in an abandoned village on the outskirts of Stuttgart, Germany.

The site of one of the most famous battles during the Omnic Crisis, it was here that the leader of the Crusaders, Balderich von Alder, and a handful of his best soldiers made a last stand against an advancing automaton army. Outnumbered and outgunned, they were ultimately slain during the resulting combat. However, thanks to their valiant efforts, the German military was able to push back the omnic offensive and win the fight.

On this map, one team must escort a battering ram to Eichenwalde Castle to reclaim Balderich’s remains from their current resting place, while the opposing team does everything in its power to thwart the keep from being breached.

I can almost see my Genji running wild in this newly revealed map!!! What do you guys think?
