News Snatch: Overwatch League Vs. Porn, Shenmue III, And Limbo Boobs

Plus Battlefield 1, Vampyr, Batman and loads more.

It’s Friday (Friday, gotta get down on Friday) so that can only mean one thing, News Snatch! Huzzah! More bits and bobs from down the back of the internet that got passed over this week, starting with the single-player campaign intro video for the ridiculously named Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr.


Stats shared by online purveyors of smut and filth, YouPorn, show that the inaugural Overwatch League is stopping people from watching some hows-yer-father on their screens. During the first match of the League viewers on YouPorn dropped by 9% with around same loss of viewers occurring up until the third game. The site also saw lower traffic during the whole week of the event.

To their credit YouPorn are not being sore losers. “We are excited to find out who will win and be the first Overwatch League champions, receiving a trophy and a cool $1 million USD bonus,” they said. “Of course, we are also curious to see how you celebrate and will be keeping an eye on visits to the site before, during and after.”

Eww.

Viewing figures for the League have been huge, the opening day drew an impressive average audience per minute of 408,000, and more than 10 million viewers tuned in over the four-day period via Twitch, MLG, and Chinese streaming partners ZhanQi TV, NetEase CC, and Panda TV.



Not one, but two pretty screens from Shenmue III.


  • Disc Jam (Switch) – February 8th
  • The Fall Part 2: Unbound (PS4) – February 13th
  • Age of Empires: Definitive Edition (PC) – February 20th
  • The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2 (PS4) – March 30th


505 Games and Otherside Entertainment have announced Underworld Ascendant on Steam (PC) fo the second half of 2018. Unfortunately it has nothing to do with Kate Beckinsdale running around in a black, skin tight, PVC costume. Boo!


Aerial dogging is coming to coming to Battlefield 1. “On London Calling and Razor’s Edge – two maps created exclusively for aerial combat – you’ll be able to live out your dogfight fantasies. Master the skies in the new Air Assault game mode and expand the horizon of your Battlefield 1 experiences.”

Oh, dogfighting. My mistake.



Episode four of Batman: The Enemy Within should be out around now, here’s the trailer.



Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is coming to iOS and Android and looks… uh… yeah.



A special GAL*GUN 2 Free Hugs Edition has been announced and includes:

  • High quality presentation collector’s box
  • Official art book
  • Official soundtrack CD
  • Huggable Mr. Happiness plushie

If you’re wondering what the game is like, keep on reading…



The first episode of the Vampyr web series is out, look, it’s just above this text



And Finally, it’s a new year and News Snatch’s resolution was to be more grown up and sensible. Lols, JK! Here’s your weekly dose of Improbable Boobs in the shape of the opening movie from Gal*Gun 2. You may spot an entirely new species of Improbable Boob in the video, Limbo Boobs!

    The Fall part 2, finally. I enjoyed the first part and have been waiting quite a while for the story to be continued.

    That YouPorn story is solid gold! Or is it just old, dried up solid spunk? Hard to say but it still made me giggle!
