Fighting Overwatch turned out to be fake

Файтинг Overwatch оказался ненастоящим

The fans of the Overwatch were confused, because the Network began to do screenshots, something similar to a fighting game with the characters of this shooter. Later, some time began to appear and bits of gameplay. Blizzard immediately inundated with questions, like, ” really?” And finally, the project was presented.

The audience really showed their fighting game a La Mortal Kombat, but beyond that a hilarious video was a no-go: this game does not exist, although the authors venture admitted that would play in such a pleasure.

In fairness it should be noted that the clumsiness of the animation and a mean range of attacks is unlikely to suspect this game is that it is done at Blizzard, because all it was more like someone’s author’s crafts.

However, Overwatch is only one game. On the topic of this shooter out of the comic. In addition, talking about the film. Oh, and about Heroes of the Storm also should not be forgotten.

Ellie from The Last of Us II is a dog

У Элли из The Last of Us II будет собака

Before we discuss the dog in the service of the protagonist in Far Cry 5, as it suddenly turned out that Ellie from the second part of The Last of Us will also be a dog.

Anyway, the main development, Neil Druckmann, published a photo in which he is depicted embracing in a dog, and the last was wearing a suit with sensors for the system of recognition of movements. Judging by what was chosen the “right” breed, and the fact of hugs, can with high probability to assume that it will be the dog of the main character, which adds new mechanics, and, of course, emotional scenes. Fans of Fallout 4 will not lie.

And now, after the publication of the photos, fans are discussing the death of Joel. It seems that he’s not going to happen in the sequel, and for the role of chief satellite, taken this character, which does not need to pay a salary and which does not need to voice.

The output of The Last of Us: Part II is unlikely to take place before the end of the year. The developers prefer to keep quiet on the subject, and, most of all, it should be already at least 2019.

Shot in Flordia associated with violent video games

Расстрел во Флордие связали с жестокими видеоиграми

In the United States since the beginning of the year happened three mass shooting in schools. The last shooting students in Florida, were the most bloody and resonant. So much so that politicians began to look for blame where there is seemingly no need to look for.

In particular, the Governor of Kentucky, Matt Bevin, called a press conference, where he expressed confidence that the 17 killed in the city of Parkland is to blame not just the offender, but also video games that are “too violent and uncontrollable to which you have access.” Mr. Governor, voiced the idea of the so-called national dialogue, which will have to normalize the problem of the proliferation of violent video games. So American gamers, followed by restriction of the Internet, now you can cut and shooters.

And, meanwhile, on the Hollywood Armory fair, automatic rifle AR-15, which was quite recent, mass murder, became a major bestseller, due to black ads. But, of course, video games.

В Cyberpunk 2077 будет стелс

Those who expect that Cyberpunk 2077 will be the same as the Witcher 3, waiting for either disappointment or joy, depending on the relationship to the Witcher, because the new game CD Projekt RED will obviously be different.

Such is not an easy task.

Cyberpunk 2077 needs to show the end of the year. Roughly these things happen to a event at E3, but maybe before. So far, we know that Cyberpunk 2077 is based on a converted engine of the third Witcher, which before the alteration could not work normally with shooting and transport.
