: Overwatch's Torbjörn Is Getting A Nerf On Consoles

Jason and I aren't the only ones complaining that Overwatch's turret-builder Torbjörn is frustratingly overpowered. Today, Blizzard's Jeff Kaplan told players that the bearded fellow's annoying turrets will soon be getting a significant damage nerf on consoles.

: What Would Get You Excited About A New Sonic The Hedgehog Game? 

There's a brand-new Sonic the Hedgehog game coming in 2017, with a reveal planned at a special event in San Diego next month. What could Sega show on July 22 that would get you excited about Sonic's next outing?


: Review: Umbrella Corps

It's a strange time to be a Resident Evil fan. The next iteration of the series was just announced at E3 and seems to be moving away from the action-heavy angle the last few games have taken (and I really liked the demo!). A remake of the beloved second game is on its way. A cursory glance at these recent developments makes it look like Capcom has its shit together and is cleaning up the brand.

And that's exactly why Umbrella Corps should have been culled.

: In Defense of Squeeks, Michael Bay's Goofy-Ass New Transformer

This past Thursday , director Michael Bay introduced a new robot that will be joining his upcoming Transformers movie, The Last Knight. Some fans were quite upset at the addition of this tiny, goofy-looking Autobot to the Transformer movie pantheon, and I have a question for those fans: Really? (I also have a follow-up question: Really?!)


: Akiba's Beat team 'thinking about' PC port

While in Los Angeles last week for E3, I had an opportunity to sit down with Acquire's Kohta Takano, the director behind the Tenchu and Way of the Samurai studio's latest project, Akiba's Beat.

Akiba's Beat is a continuation of sorts of Acquire's Akiba's Trip series, taking place in a similarly detailed recreation of otaku paradise Akihabara, Tokyo, but with a different premise and genre.

This time around, Acquire is using the setting as a backdrop for an action role-playing game starring a new group of teens who must rescue the city from a mysterious individual who is causing time to loop endlessly in a Groundhog Day-esque event dubbed the "Repeating Sunday."

During a brief hands-off demonstration, I noticed Takano was playing the game with an Xbox 360 controller and asked if the game was running off a PC. "Yes," he replied, while mentioning the title has only been announced for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita at the present time and the build he was playing was specifically designed to showcase the game at E3.

I then pointed out Akiba's Trip: Undead and Undressed was eventually released on PC after debuting on PlayStation systems and inquired if history would end up repeating itself with the latest entry of the Akiba's family. "We're thinking about it," Takano said, with a head nod, before turning his attention back to the television screen and continuing on with his presentation.

Akiba's Beat will arrive in Japan this autumn and in North America this winter.

: Bent, not broken: Nioh's flexible rigidity

It's been a long and winding road for Nioh. Koei unveiled the project a decade and a half ago -- four years prior to the company's 2008 merger with Tecmo, whose own Team Ninja (Dead or Alive, Ninja Gaiden) is now handling development of the game -- and let's just say a lot has changed since then.

Over that time, Nioh has taken the form of a Musou game (Dynasty Warriors), a Ninja Gaiden clone, and probably a few other things in between, director Fumihiko Yasuda told me while catching up with Destructoid in Los Angeles last week at E3. But it wasn't until a couple years ago, Yasuda said, that Nioh really began to take shape and move beyond the early, conceptual phases of development.

: Weekend Deals: Civ VI, Steam Summer Sale, and cheaper games thanks to the Brexit

2K Games usually keeps a tight lid on big releases like Civilization VI, so it's refreshing to see there's an exception to that rule this weekend. Currently at GMG there's a discount code that knocks 23 percent off the strategy game's asking price (down to $46.19). The same coupon applies to this August's Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and the deluxe editions of both games.

While you can still hear Rule Britannia being played overseas, the pound sterling took a hit after the Brexit vote, resulting in PC game deals for folks in the USA. Due to a favorable currency conversion this weekend, you can pick up Watch_Dogs 2 at FunStock Digital for only $39.70 or No Man's Sky for $49.62. At GamesPlanet, you'll only see British prices listed, but you can buy worldwide and after conversion titles like Total War: Warhammer and Assassin's Creed Syndicate are at or near their all-time lows.

Also at GMG this weekend is a Warner Bros. sale with discounts up to 75 percent off instantly and a stacking coupon code. Their headliner for the sale is Batman: Arkham Knight, which is silly because we're not sure who'd still want to grab a copy right now (plus the game is cheaper at Steam's Summer Sale). Besides that though, the sale is pretty decent and we're seeing new historic low price on Mad Max for only $13; Middle-Earth: Shadows of Mordor GOTY for $9; Mortal Kombat X Premium, and more.

Last, but certainly not least, in weekend deals is the big Steam Summer Sale. The daily deals and flash sales are a thing of the past, but now through July 4 at 10am Pacific, you can pretty much name your game and find some sort of discount on it. Along with Steam's, a few other Summer Sales are also lurking on the web, including Origin Infinite Sale and the Games Republic Summer Sale. On Steam, our pick includes $36 Doom; $36 XCOM 2; $16.49 ARK: Survival Evolved, and the first discount on the popular YouTubers Life.

: The Shadow Link Collection Takes The Legend Of Zelda To A Dark Place

Spencer's and Nintendo have teamed up to plunge The Legend of Zelda series into darkness. The first official Shadow Link action figure leads an army of red and black merchandise to the mall retailer's shelves next month, with a brief stop-off at the increasingly crowded Toy Time desk.


: Review: Heart & Slash

Over the years, I've backed very few Kickstarter projects. I'm cognizant of the risks involved, and for that reason, I'd rather not take a chance on anything from studios without a proven track record.

But I have made a few exceptions -- Shovel Knight (which turned out great), Hover: Revolt of Gamers by Midgar Studio (which isn't out yet, but is playable and progressing), Yooka-Laylee (which has had a fantastic campaign thus far), and Heart & Slash, which released earlier this week.

The latter is probably the least well-known of the bunch, but it shouldn't be.
