Fan-Made Overwatch Animated Short Pokes Fun At Torbjörn

A couple months ago, Overwatch's Torbjörn received a number of significant changes that allows him to move quicker, take more hits, gives him a higher shooting rate, and a new Ultimate that melts enemies in a pool of lava.

However, some players find this new edge is a bit much, making Torbjörn a frustrating opponent. An animated short from YouTuber dopawto reflects this sentiment in a comedic way.

In the video, we see Torbjörn go against several others like Junkrat and McCree, taking each down without trouble.

Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina Part 2 Gets First Teaser, Returns Next Spring

A new trailer for the second season of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has dropped, and it looks awesome. Sabrina made a lot of big changes last season and many were difficult choices. One in particular is setting her on a path of witchy darkness, which looks to be the focus of the next season.

She isn't the only one sporting a new look and making big changes. We see glimpses of Rosalind and Harvey in what looks like a flirtatious encounter and aunt Hilda seems to have newfound confidence.

With the trailer to the tune of Cherry Bomb, we just can't help but love it. For more on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, read about the upcoming holiday episode.

Reader Discussion: What Is Your Game Of The Lustrum?

Reader Discussion: What Is Your Game Of The Lustrum?

Here in the Game Informer offices, we have begun the 2018 Game of the Year discussions. It's a tense time, and the competition this year is fierce, but we're very practiced at it by now. We know how the process works, when and where to pick our battles, and when to apologize when we get unreasonably angry. This familiar time of the year prompted me to pause and reconsider something for a different 'best of' exercise.

What is your favorite game of the last five years. Adding four years to the time frame sets up competitions like Witcher III against Overwatch, or even surprising mash-ups like Sunset Overdrive versus Spider-Man.

If you need some help figuring out what came out when, you can follow the links for our 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017 game of the year awards. This year, I assume, is already on your mind.

Stefanie Joosten performed and was the model for the character Quiet in Metal Gear Solid V. MercurySteam has announced that she will be lending her talents to another video game character early next year with Spacelords. She will be playing the character, Sööma, which you can see in early concept form below.

In the press release announcing her involvement with the character, studio director Enric Álvarez cited her involvement as a collaboration, which makes it sounds like it's more than just an acting gig for Joosten.
