Roadhog to be nerfed!

According to Geoff Goodman, you can expect changes coming as soon as this week!

Blizzard was presumably getting fed up with the daily complaints about Roadhog. “Roadhog hooked me through the wall” “Roadhog hooked me through the payload” “Roadhog hooked me at my kid’s birthday”  It’s not so much that he is OP. But some might argue his hook is.

The first change is Roadhog’s chain will no longer move in only straight lines. Goodman does mention a limit to how far to the side you can grab someone.

The 2nd big change is Roadhog can no longer hook people he cant see. So no more sticking your hand out of windows and yanking people!

And lastly, there is a new “persistent” line of sight check. This means is, if you get hooked and fall off a cliff or dash. The chain will break instead of pulling you back up.

It will be an interesting day for Roadhog mains when these changes hit!

Ariana Grande coming to Final Fantasy Brave Exvius

2017 is already off to a weird start! Pop singer, Ariana Grande will be featured as a character in Final Fantasy Brave Exvius. She told her fans the news via instagram . Final Fantasy Brave Exvius is a throwback to turn based RPGs( you know. REAL RPG GAMES!!) Her character draws heavily from the picture above. We aren’t sure if she is a fan of the series or if this is just more money.  Either way we are happy to see her! Here’s some video of her sprite in action!

a little peek at DW featured in #FFBEWW ????? ♡????

Maybe we will get other pop stars in Final Fantasy games now!? Drake? Nicki Minaj? Taylor Swift?

Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite character roster…fake?

The rumor mill was swirling earlier today, when a redditor, (ten count)posted a supposed leak of the character roster for Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite. The list was a fan boy’s wet dream!

CAPCOM: Ryu, Rashid, Chun-Li, Zangief, Gill, Morrigan, Talbain, Tessa, Mega Man X, Sigma, Roll, Strider, Jin, Captain Commando, Edward Falcon, Asura, Gene, Dante, Leon, Ada, Wesker, Nina (BoF2), Spencer, Simon Blackquill, Phoenix Wright, Rathalos (Giant Character), Masamune Date, Batsu, June, and Frank West.

MARVEL: Iron Man, Captain America, Captain Marvel, Ms Marvel, Thor, Loki, Hulk, Hawkeye, Black Panther, Black Widow, Ant-Man, Spider-Man, Venom, Daredevil, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, Ghost Rider, Punisher, Ultron, Thanos, Star-Lord, Rocket (w/Groot), Doctor Strange, Gwenpool, Squirrel Girl, Fing Fang Foom (Giant Character), Wolverine, Magneto, Storm, and Doctor Doom.

Seems amazing, right? But then Ryce on Neogaf told us the list is fake. So yeah. That’s all folks. Hopefully we get at least some of the characters from the list. We hope to see the return of giant characters in a fighting game!

Mario Kart 64 out on VC today!

Time to settle some old scores! Today Mario Kart 64 comes out on the Nintendo virtual console! The game originally released in 1997 has caused numerous physical altercations only rivaled by Mario Party! After the success of the Super Nintendo’s Mario Kart, the 64 version was an amazing follow up! For only 10 dollars, this is well worth it! So get 3 friends and don’t be salty!

How the Nintendo Switch can Succeed

With the recent news of the Nintendo Switch being less powerful than Sony’s PlayStation 4, excitement for the Nintendo Switch has waned. Even hardcore Nintendo fan boys and fan girls are having a difficult time defending this one. We get it,  it’s 2017 everything should be in 8k!!! With the launch date right around the corner (March 2017) We made a list of things Nintendo can do to sell their new system!

  • GAMES GAMES GAMES!!!!

For the love of god, don’t EVER release another Nintendo console without a Mario Kart at launch! When the Wii U dropped, the games that were available just didn’t cut it. I remember constantly feeling like I had nothing to play. The games they had, you could be playing on a more powerful system.  The sales of the Wii U system picked up after Mario Kart and Smash Bros. if the Nintendo Switch can launch with a new Mario Kart and a new Smash Bros, they won’t have to worry about selling units.

  • Third Party Involvement!!

We all heard the same thing from 3rd party developers when asked about Wii/Wii U titles. Basically porting to the those formats were a pain! There were also rumors EA and Nintendo couldn’t come to an agreement about their games and DLC, same with Ubisoft. But seen here It looks like Nintendo seems to be working with a lot of different developers! Heavy hitters here are Square Enix, Ubisoft and Capcom! If Nintendo could secure a good RPG(SquareEnix) and a good 3rd party fighter(Capcom) early on. It will help sell units.

  • The party system

Nintendo is the only company still catering to those of us who like to game in the same room, on the same couch even. Remember local multiplayer? Nintendo does! The company has been playing this angle for as long as I can remember. They continue to play this role in their trailer for the Switch.

This is Nintendo’s strength. Super Smash Brothers, Mario Kart and Mario Party aren’t the most graphically advanced games, but they are extremely fun when played with your 3 best friends locally! This is one thing Nintendo will always have over Sony and Microsoft.

Overwatch confirms first LBGT Hero!

In Blizzard’s newly released  holiday comic. Tracer is seen trying to find a gift for what we assume is her girlfriend. Tracer being the sweet girl she is, stops a a robbery and ends up receiving the gift she was seeking from someone she saves. Tracer then shares a sweet holiday kiss with her lover!

Blizzard has been saying one or more of their characters would be from the LBGT community so Tracer is probably not the only one! Bravo Blizzard!!
