Pokémon meets Overwatch in this glorious fan art

We usually don’t post too much fan art here at LoadScreen, but this collection was too good to resist. The mash up by artist Han Seok-bum re-imagines Overwatch heroes as Pokémon. Most of the Overwatch heroes have been turned into a corresponding pocket monster, and some of the pairings are perfect, others are a tad confusing, but hey, they’re still adorable dammit! Sorry Bastion player...[Read More]

Resident Evil VII gets an interesting looking collectible

So fingers and male appendages are two similarly shaped, but very different body parts, right? Well judging from a Resident Evil VII collectible item, the differences might have escaped Capcom’s attention.

Games that hopefully won’t be trash in 2017

About this time last year we did a list of games we were hyped for in the coming year. Considering No Man’s Sky  headed my list I’ve decided to change the format around slightly to games that I’m hoping won’t be garbage fires this year, because fuck hype. Also, I’m going to be repeating a couple entries in here because they didn’t come out in 2016 as expected, b...[Read More]

People really liked Euro Truck Simulator 2 in the Steam Awards

OK, they also liked Grand Theft Auto V, but that hardly makes for a surprising headline.
