The open beta is over. Hopefully you were able to get in some quality time with Blizzard’s first person shooter/squad based action game Overwatch, coming out May 24th for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

Cross off Blizzard on the list of big gaming companies that have had their networks hacked. Speaking of companies who have been hacked, Valve had an interesting tidbit on their Team Fortress 2 site this week. And Sony made a few headlines regarding The Last Guardian and PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.
Two big stories concerning the transition to digital gaming and cloud gaming. Not only that, but two big characters (well, only one is actually “big”) are added to the roster of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.
And here’s a quick hit for you all: That crazily titled Final Fantasy rhythm game Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy has been receiving very positive reviews. Go buy it!
