    Well, obviously. Genji is the most cyborgiest cyborg in Overwatch.

    Hot off the recent Winter Wonderland event, Blizzard is already teasing us for the next event that's coming up.

    https://twitter.com/PlayOverwatch/status/821900007649329153

    Starting January 24th is going to be Lunar New Year (or Chinese New Year) event, which they're calling Year of the Rooster.

    Source: Polygon

    Blizzard also teased one more skin that's to come out, which is for D. Va.

    https://twitter.com/OverwatchKR/status/821900050573860865

    It looks like she's getting a traditional hanbok in celebration of the Korean holiday Seollal -- a three-day celebration of the new year.

    New hero is confirmed, and it's Orisa. It's a defense-oriented robot tank designed by a robotics prodigy named Efi.

    More info can be found here.

    I really like her design (that Twilight skin is interesting) and tool set!

    Oh how I hope this will scramble the freaking Rein and Road meta that's been there forever. Yes, Rein is fun to play as long as you have a competent team but shielding air is incredibly frustrating and gets old very quickly. And people have played Roadhog so freaking much now that there are a lot of Roadhogs out there with surgical precision on the hooks. And yea Doomfist would also have been nice but my worries are that he/she will be another flanker attacker and everyone will think they can play that stuff and we'll have another wave of "pro Genji's"...

    Well now we have a freaking Robo Death Pony, Who's apparently also the worlds most extreme crossing guard.

    Yea, robot death pony sounds about right. She has so, much, damage!
    Probably the only one besides Road that counters Road atm. Quite happy they left her out of comp for the time being. I can only imagine Orisa and the new Lucio together...

    So, Blizzard's been taking Overwatch fans on a little bit of a hype ride the last few weeks. First, there's the newest Overwatch comic, Uprising. This gave us a little bit of insight as to what happened in the events leading up to, or around, the infamous Switzerland incident.

    Second, there was just a leak -- intentional or no -- of the trailer for a content update that's coming as soon as tomorrow, as of this post(!). The leaked trailer can be seen here -- albeit it's targeted for the console version of the game and it's in French. I'll splurge about what it shows in spoiler tags, to spare others.

    Aaaaaand we're live.



    All of the new content for this event can be seen Blizzard's event page.

    So Heroes of the Storm is currently in the middle of an Overwatch event. This current week is giving players the opportunity to unlock Oni Genji for Overwatch and next week will give you the chance to unlock Police Officer D.Va.

    The first anniversary of Overwatch's public launch is here, and that means an event and new lootboxes.

    We Doomfist now, boys.
    --- Double Post Merged, Jul 6, 2017, Original Post Date: Jul 6, 2017 ---
    I looked at the new hero page for Doomfist here. It seems that Blizzard may have finally made a melee character that's viable for Overwatch -- similar to Reinhardt.

    Also, his backstory seems to elaborate on the Talon organization, a bit. It appears that the second Doomfist -- known as the Scourge -- may have been responsible for their creation. It also appears that they intend to cause conflict in the world because war and strife lead to evolution and advancement, in their eyes. This would make sense, since they're trying to wipe out the remaining Overwatch agents (to avoid vigilantes that intervene, like Tracer) and sow further chaos (i.e., assassinate Mondatta in an attempt to cause a second Uprising).
