sgamet | BAFTA noms: Inside, Firewatch, Dishonored 2, Overwatch

Although the Britain of tomorrow will be merely the county of Kent surrounded by 100-foot high razor wire, I am confident that the BAFTAs will endure forever. Long-established and highly coveted by the black tie crowd, they’re one of those award shows which tend to reward the already successful, which can make them rather safe and predictable.

Overwatch map editor is a long-term goal for Blizzard on sgamet

Blizzard do hope to one day add a map editor to Overwatch, but you shouldn’t expect it any time soon. That’s the word from game director Jeff Kaplan, who says there’s a lot of technical work between now and this future dreamtime.

Firewatch and Overcooked were also lathered with attention, winning two awards each.

sgamet | Leaky leak: Overwatch’s next event is PvE Insurrection Uprising

Update: Past Brendan, you fool! It’s actually called ‘uprising’ in English and now has a trailer in that language, available via super-legit sources, and contains all these goodies. Original story: “Il y a eu une fuite!” That means “There has been a leak” in French, a language which I am now speaking because a trailer for the next Overwatch [official site] event has seeped out onto the French YouTube channel for PlayStation. It’s called Insurrection…
