There will be a event in Overwatch in a few days to celebrate Chinese New Year, with several new seasonal skins becoming available to players to commemorate the occasion. Although some of the rewards are usually kept secret until the start of the event, it seems like we'll be getting a sneak peek at this event's skins, as a Chinese Overwatch player has leaked an ad for them on Reddit.

We've seen the heroes of Overwatch turned into many things by fans since the game's release, including Pokémon. But why stop at fictional creatures when you can turn the cast into adorable kittens? A couple of fans have done just that, with one artist named Suzuran drawing every hero as a cuddly cat, and a dedicated 3D animator named Dillon Gu who recreated each of the offensive heroes' personalities in a 3D animation. You can check out both of these after the jump!

The good folks at Playtonic Games are no strangers to quirky and inspired multiplayer modes. Without them, Banjo-Tooie, Conker's Bad Fur Day, and even the legendary Goldeneye would not have been quite so memorable when enjoyed with friends. So, with Yooka-Laylee's launch just a few months away, it really comes as no surprise that Playtonic has announced eight different multiplayer modes in that will accompany the single player campaign, all "designed" by the lonely, video game-obsessed dinosaur named Rextro.

Though I missed taking part in Overwatch's Halloween event, I was able to get a healthy (or maybe not) amount of time logged during the Winter Wonderland event last month. I had a ton of fun blasting my opponents with snowballs, so I've been anxiously awaiting word about when another special event would kick off. I and other Overwatch fans won't have to wait but a few more days, however, as Blizzard has teased the Year of the Rooster event celebrating the Chinese New Year.

We don't know exactly what Blizzard has in store for us, but they have provided a few teases. Head inside to find out more!

Elon Musk has long been considered to be a real life Tony Stark, being a billionaire who was created multiple successful businesses including SpaceX and Tesla Motors. Apparently the man is also an avid gamer, as, in a recent interview with Sam Altman, he professed his love for Overwatch and other games from Blizzard Entertainment. In addition to the praise for the multiplayer shooter, Musk and Altman discussed one modern gaming's biggest weaknesses: storytelling.

If you have been looking for a neat way to deck out your Xbox One, Microsoft has two new simple and stylish ways to choose from; both a red and green/orange controller have been announced for the modern console. Despite the apparent lackluster design decisions, both controllers are actually quite striking in their own right. The red controller features glossy accents underneath the thumbsticks and on the triggers, while the green controller sports a nice, bright orange undercoat on the thumbsticks.

A few weeks ago, we heard that Final Fantasy XV's first story DLC would follow Gladiolus, who will have a boss fight with the classic character Gilgamesh. Since then, the director of the game, Hajime Tabata, promised to deliver a lot more content for the game throughout 2017. Now, in a recent interview with Famitsu, Tabata is teasing more DLC for Final Fantasy XV.

Many an Overwatch player has been snagged by the seemingly dimension-jumping piece of metal that is Roadhog's hook from behind a wall or across a map, something which understandably frustrates his opponents. Blizzard has been working to rectify the hook's mechanics in the Public Test Realm (PTR), but it's proving more difficult than originally thought.

We're only eleven days into 2017, but Yacht Club Games is bringing Shovel Knight fans around the world an early Christmas with a huge new update regarding the future of the game. Before you ask, there still isn't a firm release date on Specter of Torment. However, Yacht Club has detailed some pretty neat changes and additions that I believe makes up for not knowing.

The world of Eos in Final Fantasy XV is already pretty huge (especially when you are trapped without both the Regalia or a Chocobo), but a recent video shows that Eos is even bigger than it seems. YouTuber Fotm Hero used a glitch to go out-of-bounds, where it was discovered that Final Fantasy XV contains a number of unused areas. It is unclear at this point whether these areas existed previous and were cut from the game or if they are regions to be used in the game's upcoming DLC packs.

Gamers everywhere were thrilled when Square Enix revealed that Kingdom Hearts III had begun development, and they were positively ecstatic when Final Fantasy VII Remake was announced. It's been several years since both of those events, and 2016 came and went with hardly any news on either title's progress. Well, it's a new year now, and a new update has just popped up from the director of both titles, Tetsuya Nomura. If you were hoping for to see either of those games come out this year, however, you'll probably be disappointed.

Overwatch has enjoyed a ton of success so far, and one of the ways it's done so is by having regular holiday-themed (or Olympics-themed) events, offering special rewards and loot to players who participate in the game during these time periods. If Blizzard keeps to the timetable they've been using, we'll be due for another one next month, and thanks to some new voice lines discovered in Overwatch, we have extra reason to believe that it will be themed for Valentine's Day.

Original article: Platinum Games originally came up with the idea for Scalebound way back in 2006, but they've struggled mightily to bring that idea to fruition. The project has been pushed aside in favor of other games multiple times, but eventually it began its life anew as an Xbox One exclusive. Microsoft and Platinum planned to launch Scalebound in 2016, but it was delayed to 2017 almost exactly a year ago, and we've heard very little about it since then. If reports from multiple sources are to be believed, Scalebound's development has hit another major snare. Click below to read on!
