Lord of the Rings Online gets you up to speed on Fate of Gundabad’s story

1 Share
It wasn’t that long ago that some columnist here at Massively OP was bemoaning the fact that Standing Stone Games had yet to actually say much about Lord of the Rings Online’s fall expansion, Fate of Gundabad. Clearly, this was jinx bait designed to draw out the studio, and sure enough, SSG posted the full […]

In Overwatch 2 Bastion loses self-repair and tank mode, gains a hat

1 Share

As part of the 2021 Overwatch League Grand Finals, Blizzard went into some detail on the changes coming to Bastion in Overwatch 2. For starters there's the visual redesign, which character art director Arnold Tsang said was about remaking the omnic with "sleeker, more modern materials" as well as, yes, adding a hat. Bastion's abilities and ultimate have also been reworked. 

In Overwatch 2, Bastion's self-repair ability will be replaced by a tactical grenade bound to alt-fire. These projectiles can bounce off walls, but will stick to enemies and floor before detonating with a knockback effect after a brief delay. In its recon configuration—the one where it walks around—Bastion's weapon will no longer have spread, damage falloff will be reduced, and fire rate cut in half. Bastion will be able to "poke at much longer ranges and play a little more like a pseudo-sniper," lead hero designer Geoff Goodman said, "kind of like his recon form theme was always meant to be."

Switching between configurations will be on a 10-second cooldown, and the transformation sequence will take eight seconds to play out. In sentry mode Bastion will be able to move while shooting, though at a slower rate. In this configuration it's got unlimited ammo, but damage is reduced by 40%.

Finally, Bastion's ultimate will no longer turn it into a tank, but instead switch to an artillery configuration in which players can choose three locations on the map—anywhere on the entire map—to bomb. They'll have a time limit in which to choose locations, however.

Overwatch 2 doesn't have a release date yet, but isn't expected until 2022. Overwatch recently lost its executive producer, with Chacko Sonny leaving Blizzard on Friday.

The Hit-Monkey Hulu Series Will Be Marvel’s Next (Violent) Series

1 Share

If you want to search the most bizarre Marvel characters, you might come across the notorious Hit-Monkey. What’s his story? Oh, nothing too special, only he’s a assassin and just happens to be a very deadly assassin. On paper, that concept sounds very ridiculous, and make no mistake, it certainly is. However, that’s precisely why it’s so very awesome. I mean, Marvel is the universe where a talking raccoon wielding space guns bigger than its body hangs out with a humanoid tree who only repeats its name all the time. Can we really say it’s weird that a monkey assassin

Netflix takes us behind-the-scenes on The Umbrella Academy season 3

1 Share

Netflix has release a new The Umbrella Academy season 3 teaser, taking us behind the scenes on the beloved superhero show. The cast touch upon the shocking season 2 finale, karaoke bangers, their favorite superheroes, and so much more. 

Season 2 arrived on the streamer back in July 2020, so we're well overdue another dose of the superpowered siblings. Based on the comic book series written by Gerard Way, the show follows the dysfunctional family as they reunite after years apart to solve the mystery of their father's death and the threat of an imminent apocalypse.

It's been a long wait for the new batch of episodes after The Umbrella Academy season 2 ended on a cliffhanger: the Hargreeves found themselves in an alternative version of the present where their father is still alive. He’s also formed a team called the Sparrow Academy instead – meaning the Umbrella Academy doesn’t exist.

The upcoming third season will also see the return of Elliot Page, Justin H. Min, Tom Hopper, David Castaneda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, and Aidan Gallagher as the Hargreeves siblings, along with Ritu Arya as Lila and Colm Feore as family patriarch Reginald Hargreeves. 

Meanwhile, Justin Cornwell, Britne Oldford, Jake Epstein, Genesis Rodriguez, and Cazzie David are joining the cast as the Sparrow Academy (with Min also playing an alternate universe version of his character, Ben).
