Here's What An NES Version of Overwatch Would Look Like

Here's What An NES Version of Overwatch Would Look Like

Overwatch's team-based, multiplayer action is fine and all, but what if it looked like was a sidescroller from the late '80s?

The new Youtube channel Rkade Soup decided to find out. They've turned the game's iconic characters and locations retro, reimagining the game as a co-op beat-'em-up.

As the video's description notes, it's not quite a true NES recreation. There are more colors and pixels display here than the NES can handle, and it sounds different as well. Still, it's an evocative facsimile – one I'd actually play, if it were real. You can watch the video of this retro rework in action below.

It's, Fall, which means we're getting hit with a deluge of blockbuster and indie releases. It also means tournament seasons are picking back up again. We'll have to wait a bit more until we see several Blizzard games have their big finals at Blizzcon in November, but between all the tournaments going on this week, you should more than enough to watch this weekend.

League of Legends' Worlds Championship continues all month, but some of the event's best matches happened this week. If you're a League fan, be sure to tune in throughout the month as teams like SoloMid, ROX Tigers, and Cloud 9 compete to take this year's title. (Stream / Schedule)

Meanwhile, the World Electronic Sports Games (yeah, it's a bit of a mouthful) tournaments kick off this weekend, using an Olympic-style format to pit teams from different nations against each other. The finals won't be for a while, but these early stages are your chance to root for your country of origin while you can. The league will feature Hearthstone (Stream), StarCraft II (Stream), Dota 2 (Stream), and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (Stream). For schedules, make sure to check out the description in each game's Twitch channel, which will be updated each day with an image of the day's matches.

Weekend Warrior – Constructive Criticism

Weekend Warrior – Constructive Criticism

It's been an educational couple weeks here at the Game Informer offices. Mostly, we've been learning that a "pile driver" is not just an irritating move Zangief does. It's also a piece of construction equipment that's used primarily for the purpose of...driving piles, I guess. The point is, there's one across the street from the GI building and the noise is making us feel as though the Swarm might be tunneling beneath us. That's okay though, because thanks to Gears of War 4, we're ready for battle. Here's how the GI crew plans on spending their last weekend on the surface. Let us know what you'll be up to in the comments.

Wade Wojcik (@WadeWojcik) – Iron Banner is back, baby. With the few remaining days of the event, I’ve got rep to grind and a new pvp set to build. This time around, the game type is Supremacy, a 6v6 capture-the-enemy-crests scoring match, and it’s fun as hell. If you’re new to either Destiny or Iron Banner, or returning from a hiatus like myself, check it out!

Two Lizard Squad Members Charged For Role In Holiday DDoS Attacks, Attack-For-Hire Sites

By now, you've probably heard of Lizard Squad, especially if you were a casualty in the DDoS attacks on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network in 2014. Since then, Finland convicted Julius Kivimaki of over 50,000 counts of cyber-crime, including harassment, fraud, and data breaches. Wednesday, two 19-year-old men, Zachary Buchta of Fallston, Md., and Bradley Jan Willem van Rooy of Leiden, the Netherlands, were charged in Chicago with conspiring to cause damage to protected computers. The charge carries a 10-year maximum sentence in prison. 

Both operated under the monikers of "Lizard Squad" and "PoodleCorp," and did way more than just inconvenience gamers over the 2014 holiday. The investigation began after authorities discovered phonebomber.net, a website that allowed paying customers to send repeated harassing phone calls from spoof numbers to the target of their choice. Soon after, came thousands denial-of-service attacks and attacks that targeted various companies in the gaming, entertainment, and media sphere. Lizard Squad made even bigger waves when it hacked Taylor Swift's Twitter account. According to the criminal complaint, Buchta and van Rooy also conspired with other members of Lizard Squad to run cyber-attack-for-hire websites and trafficked stolen payment card account information for thousands of victims.

While these aren't the exact scenes you'll see in the movie, a few of them line up fairly well with the recent Comic-Con trailer.
