Which Overwatch Character Are You? (Quiz)

The world needs heroes, but which are you?

I wasn't sure how I'd feel when I first got Overwatch. But a few months later, and it's a game I play nearly every day of the year.

It's so fun and addicting, even though you may not always get the best team -- sometimes carrying them -- and you may go 10 straight losses before your first win of the day.

Anyways, the point is, Overwatch is fun and the replay value is always high, especially with the game getting constantly updated.

Everyone plays differently, mainly when it comes to selecting the hero to play as in match-ups. While some people will go wherever is needed, some have a main hero they play as, while others will have a specific characters they want to play as depending on which role they take on.

But which hero do you identify with in real life? Find out by taking this quiz!

Seemingly every single night he would do something that would blow the minds of NBA fans across the league.

Free "Overwatch" Loot Boxes For Amazon And Twitch Prime Members

We love free stuff.

Good news for Overwatch players with Twitch or Amazon Prime memberships: Blizzard has teamed up with Twitch to give away free golden loot boxes. Players will receive one box, which is guaranteed to contain a non-seasonal (darn) event legendary item that can be equipped to the hero it is for.

It doesn't stop there, though. Over the next several months, players will receive an additional ten normal loot boxes, five in August and five in October. Similar promotions will soon be run for Heroes of the Storm and Hearthstone.

The collaboration between Blizzard and Twitch will last two years, and include rights for Twitch to stream Blizzard eSports tournaments like the Overwatch APEX League and Premier Series, the World of Warcraft Arena Championship, the Heroes of the Storm Global Championship and the Hearthstone Championship Tour.

The eSports streaming is cool and all, but who doesn't like free loot boxes? I like free loot boxes, I like free legendary items and it's actually pretty easy to get. I may or may not have claimed mine already. Just follow a few easy steps here and claim your stuff! Fingers crossed that you get the legendary item that you really want.

I haven't opened my box yet and I'm not gonna lie, if it's a Torbjorn skin, I am going to be very, very upset.

Anyways, Twitch getting high-profile partnerships is awesome and makes for a lot of potential in the gaming industry. Similar Twitch-exclusive free item offers are available in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and NBA 2K17.

Overwatch Teases New Possible Map On The Moon

Get on the payload in low gravity.

Blizzard Entertainment released a blog containing information about a potential new map and plot point for Overwatch.

Written as a news release, the blog talks about the "possible fate" of the Horizon Lunar Colony, the home of playable hero Winston. Graphics of exchanged communications between the scientists of the colony reveal that genetically modified gorillas were acting out, one named Hammond was missing and then that there was an issue with the airlock before the messages cut out.

A possible map of the colony was included, and a list of gorilla specimens included on the left side. Most importantly, underneath the specimen list is a section saying "Not Found", under which are the names "Hammond" and "Winston".

So what does this mean?

There's immense speculation that this is a new map to be added to the game or an event-exclusive map that would function similarly to the Uprising event. There are also theories about the identity of the missing Hammond, functioning as the villain to Winston similar to how Reaper is the villain to Soldier 76, or Widowmaker to Tracer.

There's also a theory amongst those familiar with Overwatch lore that Hammond is the enigmatic Doomfist, a gauntlet-clad being that could "level skyscrapers", of which there have been three successive individuals so far. While there isn't much out yet to support or refute this idea, who knows, maybe Doomfist is a primate. Weirder things have happened.

Or it could be totally boring and Hammond is just a new playable character and not a villainous one.

Meanwhile, Blizzard's been fielding complaints about the loot boxes for the Overwatch anniversary event. Soon after launch, complaints arose that the event-exclusive items were too hard to get in the limited window of time. With 11 skins and a plethora of dance emotes that people are purchasing loot boxes and level grinding for, the yield has been... pathetic.

I myself have only gotten two skins and one dance emote after hours and hours of gameplay since the event launch.

In response, the game director said that Blizzard is listening, but have no immediate plans for action. Have a new map instead! Don't think about it! Who really wants a badass Symmetra skin? Not you! Look at these missing gorillas! Very important stuff.

While I am endlessly appreciative of Blizzard's new content and willingness to try new things to make Overwatch fresh and exciting, revealing the information during the anniversary event is overwhelming and feels like a distraction from the event's problems.

I might just be grumpy that I don't have the Mercy dance emote.

Regardless, it looks like new content for the game is on the Horizon... Lunar Colony.

Ha ha ha ha.

I'm so sorry.
