Episode Info:

It’s a rather slow week in regards to gaming news, but we’re talking about a few interesting topics on this weeks podcast.

Sigma, Overwatch’s 31st Hero, and then 10th to be released after the game’s launch is live on the PTR. He’s a mad scientist that has messed with the boundaries of gravity. His powers include:

  • Hyper Spheres - launches two charges that implode and damage an area

  • Experimental Barrier - can be propelled to any location and then recalled

  • Kinetic Grasp - converts incoming projectiles to shields

  • Accretion - gathers debris and then throws it at an enemy

  • Ultimate: Gravitic Flux - lifts nearby enemies into the air and then slams them back down onto the ground.

Matt’s a pretty big Overwatch fan, and Jake thinks it’s dying, a slow, sad, death, but overall, it’s cool to see Blizzard still supporting the game.

Pokemon and Tencent have teamed up to make games in China. If you didn’t know, “Tencent Holdings Limited, is a Chinese multinational investment holding conglomerate founded in 1998, whose subsidiaries specialize in various Internet-related services and products, entertainment, artificial intelligence and technology both in China and globally.”

Basically, they’re a mega company that has a percent stake in almost every game company you can think of; Grinding Gear Games (80%), Miniclip (undisclosed majority stake), Riot Games (100%), Glu Mobile (14.46%), Epic Games (40%), Activision Blizzard (5%), Ubisoft (5%), Paradox Interactive (5%), and Supercell (84.3%).

It’s interesting to think what the Pokemon Company could produce for a Chinese audience. We don’t have any details yet, but it’s very likely that it will be a mobile game.

The Switch Lite was announced a couple days ago and it seems like it’s intended for a specific audience. We both own the Nintendo Switch, and don’t necessarily see a reason to purchase, but if someone was always on the go, it might make sense!
