‘Overwatch’ colorblind mode sucks, says a top player — and the community agrees

  • Blizzard has a good reputation for constantly making tweaks and updates, but there’s one area it seems to be dropping the ball: Accessibility options for players with disabilities.
  • In the past, Blizzard has come under fire for its lack of subtitles for hearing impaired players.
  • This time around, Overwatch’s colorblind players are asking for some much needed improvements.
  • According to one of the world’s top Bastion players, Overwatch’s colorblind mode makes everything look like a psychedelic fever dream but isn’t actually all that helpful. Read more (2/24/17 2:28 PM)

Sonic Forces Teased, Sonic Mania Delayed

On the official Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter today, Sega posted the above piece of art as a teaser for the newly minted Sonic Forces, an upcoming next-gen Sonic game (formerly known as Project Sonic 2017) that is set to release for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC. According to the tweet, gameplay footage will be coming tomorrow, but if you’re feeling impatient, a crafty soul on Twitter grabbed some off-screen footage.

Less pleasant news comes from a newly uploaded teaser trailer of Sonic Mania showing off the Flying Battery Zone returning from Sonic 3 and Knuckles. Neat in its own right, but according to the video description, the game has been pushed back to Summer 2017. Too bad, but at least that clears up my Spring calendar a bit.

‘Overwatch’: Efi’s shopping list explained

  • The Overwatch team has been teasing a new character for several days now, though cryptic tweets and a blog post on the official Overwatch site. The character is Efi Oladele, an 11-year-old  inventor from Numbani.
  • It's  not clear whether Efi herself will be a new character, or if she’s simply inventing some kind of robot that will eventually be the playable one.
  • Most recently, the Overwatch twitter posted an image of Efi’s list of “things to get.”

So what are these ojbects?

  • What’s an OR-15?
    • OR-15s are defensive robots on Numbani — you know, the ones that got smashed up in the attack on the Numbani airport. In the fictional interview that revealed her, Efi Oladele cited OR-15s as an inspiration for the kind of creation she might like to invent someday. So it’s possible the attack on the Numbani airport was the motivation she needed to start building something.
  • What’s a Branford arm?
    • This does not seem to be a term that’s been used in Overwatch lore up until this point. No idea.

  • What’s a fusion driver?
    • Again, this doesn’t seem to be a reference to anything specific in Overwatch lore, but it’s probably some kind of power source.
  • What’s a Tobelstein reactor?
    • A Tobelstein reactor — which Efi presumably misspelled as “Tolbelstein” — seems to be the technology used in Zarya’s energy cannon. Some players are theorizing that this means Efi is building a robot that will have some kind of gravity manipulation abilities, but that’s not clear yet.What’s the deal with those paint swatches?That’s probably a sneak peek at what colors we can expect this new robot to sport.
  • What’s an Axiom vocal processor?
    • It seems that Axiom is some kind of Omnic manufacturer, perhaps, and that the vocal processor is some kind of voice chip that lets an Omnic speak. The object in the upper-right corner of the picture is probably this vocal processor, which is why Efi has crossed it off her list.
  • What’s that sketch in the upper-left corner?
    • That’s probably the head of whatever robot Efi is constructing. It looks a lot like the smashed OR-15s on Numbani.
  • What’s that little triangle-shaped logo in the lower-right corner?
    • That’s not clearly linked to anything in particular, but some people are theorizing that it’s somehow related to an Omnic’s designs that appear in several ads in Numbani.
  • What are Lúcio-Ohs?
    • It’s a Lúcio-branded cereal that makes an appearance in one of Lúcio’s sprays. Efi needs to stock up, pronto. Gotta fuel that beautiful, genius brain of hers. Read more (2/28/17 10:13 AM)

Sonic Forces Will Feature Custom Heroes

Have you ever played the Sonic Google game? It’s easy; just Google any name followed by “the Hedgehog.” If a picture of a Sonic OC comes up, you lose.

In a new trailer for Sonic Forces, a new custom hero mechanic was revealed. Players will be able to create their own protagonist, customizing elements such as race, clothing, and gadgets. Available gadgets include a grappling hook and a flamethrower, to name a couple. This protagonist’s gameplay will apparently make up about a third of the game, with the other two thirds dedicated to Classic Sonic and Modern Sonic. Whether this protagonist will have a roll in the story has not been revealed.
