    "I really think that this one of the best Overwatch skins that the game has released so far. Lu Bu's dark aesthetic and colors compliment Reaper's equally dark and appearance with the black and red color scheme."

    "Out of all the skins that were released during the Lunar New Year event, Genji's Baihu Legendary skin has got to be the most intricately design one among them. The blue accents and the details on the chain-mail makes for some cool highlight reel footage."


Did you know that the decision to develop Overwatch came after Blizzard Entertainment's decision to cancel Titan? After the cancellation of Titan in 2013, employees assigned to the project were transferred to other departments. A small team of 40 people, however, were tasked to bring about a concept for a new game and was only given a few months to do so. Director Jeff Kaplan, the team's lead, eventually came up with an idea of a team-based hero shooter. This decision stemmed from the fact that MOBA games were starting to build up in popularity during this period.

Knowing Blizzard, it comes to no surprise that Overwatch comes with a deep and complicated lore, with backstories for each and every character. As Overwatch began to grow in fame developers began to include more content with every update including characters, skins, and many more. Additionally, events were held periodically which offer new additions to the game. Even a huge number of Overwatch streamers have made it big showing gameplays, matches, and compilation videos. Despite being developed without any dedication to e-sports, prize-winning competitions for the game were held only a few months after launch, as well as an announcement by Blizzard for plans to hold their own Overwatch League during BlizzCon 2016.

    "This is one of the coolest Overwatch skins available for Windowmaker. It gives us a good idea of who she was before she became part of Overwatch. The signature blueish skin is not present but you get cool blue-colored hair."

    "There is plenty of skins for Reinhardt in the game but I think this is one of his best one. This one of the few that show a younger version of himself without a mask on. The design is quite detailed and shows us his pre-Overwatch look. "
