Overwatch voice actors cosplay as the characters they voice

Getting into character

We don't often get to see the faces behind the voices of some of our favorite game characters. It's always nice to put a face to a voice, but this is a step beyond! In the photo above, you see voice actors Carolina Ravassa (Sombra), Anjali Bhimani (Symmetra) and Matthew Mercer (McCree) representing their in-game counterparts. I'd say they look just as great as they sound!

Smash Bros. player working on a hand-warming GameCube controller

You've gotta hand it to him

Here's something I didn't know about competitive gamers. A decent amount of them bring handwarmers to events in order to keep their hands literally warmed up. Warmer hands are able to move quicker, and a lot of tournament events are kept extra cool due to all the electronics and people that attend.

The act of warming up hands at events is so prevalent that Smash Bros. Melee player Morne has been working on the above prototype. It's a GameCube controller that warms your hands as you play, and is powered by an external power source. This is just the first design Morne has worked on, and a more sophisticated version is already being put together. It'll be interesting to see just how far this idea goes!

There are standard and collector's editions, with the collector's edition including an artbook, poster, soundtrack, and Turing metal pin.
