Weekly News Roundup: Week 44

Call of Duty WWII came out

It’s that time of the year again, when all the classic AAA titles we’ve come to know, love, hate, break, etc. And Call of Duty is no exception.

Or maybe it is, Call of Duty WWII is out! And it’s not as bad as you might think. In fact, there are a lot of aspects about it that not only make it a decent Call of Duty game but not a half bad game in general.

Of course, the year is but an infant, I could be completely wrong about everything. In which case, why not go out and buy the game yourself? It’s definitely not the worst thing I’ve seen, and the campaign isn’t half bad.

Overwatch announces Moira

Well, since the Doomfist craze has calmed down a little bit, I think Overwatch is in the market for a new character to introduce.

And so this week, Blizzard unveiled Moira, the healer that will support you! Well, it’s more like a character that’s some weird, inhumane, creature that’s a hybrid of the other supporting characters. Why do I say that? Look at the abilities.


Moira has can heal allies with a beam, and use that same beam to harm enemies. She can also shoot out projectile orbs that heal allies within proximity, and hurt enemies within that same zone. Then she can also teleport like Reaper, and her ultimate is a super-beam that heals allies immensely and disintegrates enemies.

Not the most original abilities, but putting them in this form changes things up, I’m excited to see how she’ll play when she eventually comes out. No words on that yet.

Assassin’s Creed Origins came out too

The second major title coming out this year, Assassin’s Creed Origins, came out late last week and is the return of the series after taking a year break to make sure that this game is the best thing ever.

So what how are people liking it? Well, after looking at the reviews on Steam so far, a lot of people seem to really like the game, it’s hitting well. Only one thing though, there are a ton of complaints about the game not running well on PC, in fact, it’s melting people’s CPUs which is never good.

So go check out the game, people are praising the open world design and numerous side missions that are available in the stunning Egyptian environment.

Blizzard announces legacy servers for World of Warcraft

Everybody who ever played World of Warcraft got all up in arms last year when Blizzard shut down Nostalrius, a very popular non-profit legacy server that kept the game in vanilla so players could enjoy the base game that lied beneath all of those updates.

But it’s not become apparent that Blizzard has done a 180 on their logic and they’re going to be making legacy servers of their own that will allow players to continue the nostalgia. They haven’t released any dates, but they have said that this project is larger than they thought, and they aim to bring back the feel of the original game while still keeping the experience the same. Cutting out all the extra stuff in a game takes a while, code is a web that requires careful dissection in order to make sure everything still works in the end..a
