Overwatch: Anthology Vol 1

From Soldier: 76 to Ana, Tracer to Symmetra, discover the backstories behind Overwatch’s most popular heroes! This hardcover anthology collects the first twelve issues of Blizzard Entertainment’s digital Overwatch comics and features an all-star creative team, including Matt Burns, Robert Brooks, Micky Neilson, Nesskain, Bengal, and more. Whether you are a beginner or a Grandmaster, this anthology is an essential companion to Overwatch gameplay!

I’m sure just admitting this publicly puts my video game card at risk, but I’m not an Overwatch fan. I played the first open beta to check it out, had a fairly good time with it, but had no interest past that. I’m not saying it’s a bad game, not at all, it’s just not for me...

Batman: The Enemy Within – Episode One: The Enigma

Written by: James Windeler, Patrick Kevin Day & Shanon Ingles
Directed by: Kent Mudle

One year after Batman stopped Penguin, Two-Face, Lady Arkham, and the Children of Arkham in the first season of Batman: The Telltale Series, Gotham is now safer than it’s ever been thanks to Batman and Gotham’s new police commissioner, Jim Gordon.

As a whole, it was good but marred by problems big and small...

The Art of Prey

A dark force is tormenting Talos I, and survival depends as much on wit as strength. Now, journey alongside Morgan Yu to discover the mysteries within Prey. Arkane Studios and Dark Horse Books are proud to present a comprehensive collection of art from the development of this long-awaited and hotly anticipated game!

This is one of those games that I both have and haven’t been interested in playing. It looks amazing from the trailers, but it also looks like it will scare the bejeezus out of me. For the time being, I think I’ll just spend some time checking out The Art of Prey and save the game for another day.

Nearly half of the pages in this book is comprised of content focusing on the environment in and around the setting, Talos I...

Throughout the decades of video game history, there are those series that have reached a higher level of prestige.

Having the opportunity to gaze upon The Legend of Zelda: Art & Artifacts, I can’t help but appreciate it more.

This hefty book is split into ...
