Happy Wednesday, gaming lovelies! I’m wrapping up the unofficial kick-off to summer here in the Northeast by staying inside, far away from the pollen, and playing a lovely tower defense game. Send mojitos. Now, on to the news! (more…)

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? The winter months (at least for us Northern Hemisphere folks) have stretched long and cold, and now we’re greeted by the tender leaves of spring, finally able to plant all those kale seeds we’ve been keeping locked away in Stardew Valley.
What has the Sidequest team been up to since we last let you in on what we’re playing? A lot, it turns out!

I am pleased to report that, after flailing and whining about how hard Overwatch’s update to its “Junkenstein’s Revenge” battle is, my friends and I have now mastered it and I have even scored myself Symmetra’s gorgeous new dragon costume. This year’s version of the battle now includes Symmetra as “The Summoner,” increasing the challenge of the four-person mission to defend a castle from Junkenstein and his minions. It also offers an additional version that lets players play as another four characters from the growing game roster. If you’re not playing Overwatch yet and have no idea what I’m talking about, check out our takes on the game to find out why you should fix this right away. Otherwise, settle in this week’s gaming news!
