San Francisco Shock win second consecutive Overwatch League title
On Saturday the San Francisco Shock were crowned Overwatch League champions, winning the Overwatch League Grand Finals 4-2 over the Seoul Dynasty. This is their second consecutive Overwatch League title.
"I still can't believe it. The whole Overwatch League 2020 season definitely was not easy," San Francisco Shock coach Park "Crusty" Dae-hee said after the match. "The fact that we were able to defend our championship and win again this year was a huge thing and I am super happy about that."
Crusty also coached the Shock to their first Overwatch League title in 2019.
The San Francisco Shock qualified from the North American playoffs winners' bracket with a 3-1 victory over the Philadelphia Fusion. Philadelphia was the other North American grand finals representative with Seoul Dynasty and the Shanghai Dragons from the Asian playoffs bracket. The Shock did not drop a single match in their grand finals run, beating Seoul Dynasty 3-2 in the first round, the Shanghai Dragons 3-2 in the second round, and the Dynasty again in the grand finals.
Despite hero pools and a generally volatile year both in and out of game -- including the departure of the team's 2019 MVP, Jay "sinatraa" Won, to VALORANT -- the San Francisco Shock remained near or at the top of the standings all year. By contrast, Seoul's performances were more meta-dependant, and they entered this grand finals bracket as underdogs with obvious strong points in main tank Hong "Gesture" Jae-hee's Roadhog and flex tank Hwang "Marve1" Min-seo's Sigma combination to support DPS phenom Park "Profit" Joon-yeong.
The star of the Shock on Saturday was finals MVP Kwon "Striker" Nam-joo and his Tracer play, but San Francisco's main strength is their unprecedented team play. Their players were flexible enough to meet Seoul in mirror matches, besting the Dynasty in the meta that got them to grand finals, while always opening up space to allow Striker to dart in and out of the enemy backline.
San Francisco kicked off the match with two map wins on Oasis and King's Row. Seoul then picked the Shock-favored Hanamura and proceeded to beat them on that as well as Watchpoint: Gibraltar to tie the match at 2-2. After a close second point won out Busan for the Shock, Hollywood was almost all San Francisco, closing out the series at 4-2 to secure their second title.

Genshin Impact launched just over a week ago, but today developer MiHoYo released a roadmap that stretches all the way to February 2021 and includes a new zone, in-game events, and a lot of smaller improvements. The first of those updates, simply called update 1.1, will arrive on November 11 and will be followed up by a second major update on December 23. MiHoYo has said it plans to keep this five-week cadence going forward for the time being.
If you've been no-lifeing Genshin Impact since it launched, though, you might be disappointed to learn that update 1.1 won't have much new content for players. In a series of blog posts written in Chinese on MiHoYo's website and translated by the reddit community, it explained that some in-game activities that players were hoping would soon be added have been delayed so it could focus on bugfixing and improving various systems.
In a separate blog post, MiHoYo outlined some of the fixes and improvements coming in 1.1, as translated by redditor Zlunlu. The translation isn't perfect, but it sounds like Genshin Impact will be getting a feature to lock items and equipment so they aren't accidentally used as fodder to power up other items, in addition to a monster encyclopedia. Players will also be able to use food and medicine without having to open the inventory, and a new item is being added to help you locate hidden chests and collectibles that you might've missed. And though it's not confirmed to be in 1.1 as of yet, MiHoYo said it's also working on letting players customize the controls and rebind keys
The 1.1 update will include one new event called The Unreturned Star, but it's not exactly clear what activities this will entail. It's likely that this might simply add some new, time-sensitive quests for players to complete in exchange for more rewards.
Update 1.2 is much more exciting, however. Though MiHoYo didn't go into much detail, it said that Dragonspine Mountain will be added to the game—giving players a whole new region to explore. It's not clear just how big this new area will be, and if it will feature the same puzzles and exploration as the two regions currently in the game.
Update 1.3 in February will include the Lantern Rite Festival, which has a "series of activities" associated with it. Again, not much to go on.

‘Torchlight III’ Trailer Teases Playstyles, Relics, Pets, Boss Battles, Endgame Content & More
In case you missed it, a new trailer for Torchlight III debuted during RazerCon this weekend ahead of the game’s launch on Steam, Xbox One, and PlayStation4 this October 13th; coming soon to Switch (with an exclusive cosmetic for Nintendo Switch players.) But the video above is more than just a trailer, it’s an invitation to gamers everywhere to check out the latest installment in the Torchlight series. This welcoming introduction lays out the game’s various playstyles, teases the powerful relics that boost your chosen character, and unveil the pets, forts, and even endgame content. It’s a perfect intro to the title even if you (like me) have never played a game in the franchise before.
Here’s the official synopsis, followed by more details from the press release:
In Torchlight III, it’s been a century since the events of Torchlight II, where the great heroes of old defeated The Dark Alchemist and sealed the Netherlord’s heart inside the Clockwork Core. The heroes brought peace to the world of Novastraia, but now the Ember Empire finds itself on the brink of collapse as it’s under threat of invasion by the Netherim and its allies. To save Novastraia, Torchlight III players will need to gather their wits and brave the frontier in search of fame, glory and new adventures to become the legends the world needs them to be.
• Travel the Frontier: Players can explore the wilderness, party with friends, gather materials to craft loot, use magical maps to enter unknown dungeons, or show off their spoils in town! There’s always something to do in the new frontier.
• Build & Upgrade Your Fort: It’s time to rebuild! Players will enjoy their very own account-based fort, where they can upgrade gear, and make renovations to show it off to their friends and the world. The game allows them to build monuments of power, pet stables, and more!
• Choose a Relic: Relics are objects of great power that grant players a suite of active skills and passive skills. Players will choose one of five of these at the beginning of their journey and use skill points to unlock or enhance their relic’s abilities. The relic is an important part of a character’s strategy – choose wisely!
• Collect Epic Gear: Suit up in a robust variety of armor and weapons found across the frontier including charming hats, pet apparel, and unique locomotion options. Players can select from a wide array of weapons that suit their playstyle and class build. With over a hundred Legendary items, players can permanently acquire their special abilities in order to make themselves more unique and powerful.
• Pets are Back: Players can fight their way to fame and glory with loyal companions! Each of the many species comes in a myriad of colors and styles so adventurers shouldn’t settle for the first one they find. They can make these trusty pets stronger by adding skills, equip them with gear to make them hardier, and together battle enemies as a team. Pets also have their own vast inventory for items, and players have the option to have their pets sell items directly in town.
• Build Your Hero: With four classes to choose from, along with 20 class and Relic combinations — each combination offering a unique playstyle — and a wide range of choices of where to place skill points at, players can utilize class-specific mechanics to maximize damage and their odds of survival. Torchlight III lets them gather epic gear, select your Relic powers, and customize loadouts to create a unique combat style for their heroes.

Sega 60th Anniversary Steam Sale Brings the Hits and More to PC
Up until relatively recently, Sega was best known for console games and Sonic the Hedgehog, but these days it’s actually a pretty prominent PC publisher, with a large presence thanks to franchises like Total War and Company of Heroes. That makes the Sega 60th Anniversary Steam Sale a pretty juicy event for those looking for a PC-based deal or two.
In keeping with Sega 60th Anniversary sales for other platforms, the Steam sale brings big cuts to titles across the Sega and Atlus catalog. There’s also the added advantage of the PC having a somewhat wider range of Sega-published titles to choose from.
The discounts themselves are quite large to, in some cases going up to 95% off. Titles like Bayonetta, Alien: Isolation, and Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III cost less than the price of a premium coffee as of this writing. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is also free to keep from October 9 to 18, 2020, and a number of titles are free to try for the sale duration.
The more event-minded can also tune in to Sega’s steam pages to check out special streams, interviews, exclusive mini-games created specifically for the event, and other goodies. The exclusive mini-games will be distributed free from October 15-18.

Overwatch's annual Halloween Terror event kicks off tomorrow October 13
And ends on November 3.
For a while, Overwatch kept churning out events at such a rapid pace, it was fun to see what the team could come up with. Halloween Terror co-op content? Sure, I'll take it.
But Blizzard could only keep the "brand new" feel train running for so long, and now we've settled into a comfortable cadence of returning events. Halloween Terror returns annually, usually with small twists and new skins on top of the same wave-based foundation. The same thing is happening this year.
Over the weekend, Blizzard confirmed that Halloween Terror is coming on October 13. It'll run through November 3, and as usual, skins are at the forefront of the event. Previous limited-run skins will be available to pick up again (with old ones accompanied with a discount), as well as some new ones teased in the video below (the Echo skin is perfection).
Halloween Terror, without fail, gets me to play even a little bit more Overwatch each year. Recently, the Switch version has been calling to me!

Amazon is giving up on Crucible, offering full refunds
Amazon's free-to-play shooter, Crucible, was a flop. We gave the game a 48% in our review, and a month after release Amazon sent it back to closed beta. The plan was to continue development with feedback from the small group of players that had gathered around it, and then determine what to do next. I assumed it'd be released back into the public for another shot at success, but that's not going to happen.
In a post on the official Crucible website, the studio announced that once it puts out the final feature on the roadmap, custom games, development on Crucible will end. Later, the servers will be shut down.
"We very much appreciate the way that our fans have rallied around our efforts, and we've loved seeing your responses to the changes we've made over the last few months," wrote the developer, "but ultimately we didn’t see a healthy, sustainable future ahead of Crucible."
The Crucible team will be moved onto other Amazon projects, such as MMO New World, which was going to release this year before being delayed to 2021.
There will be a final Crucible play session organized by the developers "in the coming weeks," and then matchmaking will be turned off. Custom games (the last upcoming feature) will work until 12 pm Pacific on November 9.
