E7: BOOP – I’m Sombra!

E7: BOOP – I’m Sombra!

In the seventh Arcade Gaming Podcast, Jon, Howard, and Tim sat down to discuss the NES Classic selling out in seconds, BlizzCon – including Sombra, Diablo, and the Overwatch League, our successful Extra-Life broadcast, and more!

Did you get an NES Classic? Neither did we...

nes-classic-editionThe NES Classic Edition officially hit the market on Friday, and nobody got one! Okay, I’m sure a few people were lucky enough, but not us! Several members of #TeamArcade attempted to grab one from Amazon but the hype literally brought down the product page. Bummer!

Were you able to secure one? Let us know on Twitter!

Sombra makes an appearance

If you’ve been keeping up with Sombra’s ARG, Blizzard had been teasing their new hero for several months before making it official at BlizzCon, in the greatest reveal of all. Check out the video below to see how it all went down.

The Overwatch League

One of the bigger announcements at BlizzCon was the Overwatch League – a major step in the right direction for eSports – offering eligible players tryouts, contracts, base salaries, and benefits! Check out out post for more details.

A big thank you!

Last weekend, we hosted our first Extra Life 24-hour broadcast since rebooting Arcade, and it was fantastic! Not only did we have a great time connecting with all of you, but we were able to raise almost $3,000 for children in need. Stay tuned for our next big event.
