Nerf will bring 'Overwatch' hero D.va's blaster to life

The next Overwatch gun from Nerf and Blizzard is none other than D.va's blaster pistol. The toy will be available sometime next year, the same ambiguous timeframe that was given for Reaper's shotgun. As before, Hasbro hasn't announced pricing for the toy just yet either. But hey, at least we know that the ammunition will travel "up to" 80 feet per-second, be Overwatch-branded and colored to match the hero using it. In this case, pink is a pretty safe bet for the mech-dweller. Nerf this, indeed.

EA apologizes for censoring Colin Kaepernick’s name in ‘Madden 19’

EA has now apologized for removing Colin Kaepernick's name from a song included in the soundtrack of Madden 19.

‘Fortnite’ streamer Ninja is the first to 10 million Twitch followers

As Fortnite has taken over the zeitgeist, its high tide gave rise to someone else: Tyler "Ninja" Blevins. The streamer has more or less become the unofficial face for the game, appearing in tournaments, racking up sponsorship deals, playing Epic Games' free-to-play cultural phenomenon alongside celebrities. He makes $500,000 a month from streaming. Blevins also crossed a major threshold: He's the first to tally 10 million followers on Twitch, as spotted by Dexerto. This didn't happen overnight, though.

Valve's pay-to-play 'Dota' card game will be released November 28th

Valve's next title Artifact, a trading-card game, will be released November 28th. Digital trading card games like Gwent from Witcher developer CDProjekt Red and Hearthstone from Blizzard have been doing surprisingly well lately. That's probably somewhat because they're free to play. Artifact, based on Valve's free-to-play MOBA, Dota 2 will not be. Instead, a pair of 54-card starter decks and ten 12-card booster packs will set you back $20, according to Ars Technica.
