My High-Energy Zarya Problems in Overwatch

Overwatch — Zarya

Recently, I’ve been rethinking about my approach to Overwatch. Since late last year, I’ve been a Zarya main as I found her to be my most dependable option. She lets me consistently(?) contribute to my team, whether I’m doing particularly well or not. Constant use of barriers, consistent splash damage, picking off stragglers every now and then, staying alive, and well-placed graviton surges are pretty much the basics to a competent Zarya. (more…)

My Top 10 Games of 2016

2016 in Avoiderdragon

It seems like coming late with these annual top 10 games lists is now a tradition. Publishing a month late does give me more time and room to meditate on which games really moved me in the previous year, thus coming up with a better video and post to explain my feelings about my picks. With that said, I didn’t play as many games as I could have last year, which explains why I left so many good titles out. Despite that, I feel pretty good about this list of the ten best games of 2016 I got to play. (more…)

Overwatch — Sombra’s Way

Overwatch — Sombra | Avoiderdragon

In a concerted effort to create more content in the style of video essays that I love watching so much, here is one I made for Overwatch, specifically the new character Sombra. I have to admit that it’s not the most solid of videos I could’ve made as it doesn’t even scratch the surface and may have gotten some things wrong in it. Nonetheless, I do hope it opens the floodgates for more presentations like this in the coming weeks. (more…)

Overwatch — Practicing with Tracer

Tracer from Overwatch

So it has been months since Overwatch officially came out, and I haven’t been playing it as much as I should. But within my limited play time, I’ve only gotten competent with three heroes—D.Va, Soldier 76, and Junkrat. Despite my best efforts, I consciously feel the limits of these characters during gameplay, and those limits are getting worse over time. Perhaps it’s due to lack of practice, but I think that can also be remedied by practicing with more challenging characters like Tracer. (more…)

How to Fuck Up Reinhardt in Overwatch [Guide]

Overwatch — How to Kill Reinhardt | Avoiderdragon

Everyone wants to hate on the usual suspects like Bastion, but Reinhardt is more consistent as the guy you must hate in Overwatch. I swear he’s getting his dick sucked behind that shield, and that smugness needs to be wiped out from the face of the earth. If ever the shield goes and you’re close, he can stun you with his ultimate, then swing that hammer like he’s slapping a ho with his cock. (more…)

Overwatch — A Good Kind of Black Hole [Impressions]

Overwatch

After tons of hype and a fairly extensive beta period (as well as a minor controversy concerning the fictional depiction of female buttocks), the much-anticipated new game by Blizzard finally came out. It has been almost a week since the release of Overwatch, and it’s currently making the folks over at Gearbox Software have sweaty palms (and hopefully with Randy Pitchford unable to sleep at night). While it’s given that this may be a bit too late for just a first impressions post and I should put out a review already, I still have to put this up to wrap my head around my thoughts about this game.

Friday Show #2 — Filling the Overwatch Void

Friday Show | Avoiderdragon

A late one, but also a good one. I kinda like it better than the last one already due to how much more meat it had (as well as more raw emotion), but that’s only because I had to make up for the lack of an episode in the previous week. There’s a bit of pent-up frustration here due to the ordeal I had to endure, as well as having to wait for the launch of Overwatch. The week was just playing whatever caught my eye to fill that gaping void. This episode has two weeks worth of filling that void, so you better thank the stars for me putting up with it to come up with this crap. (more…)

Friday Show #1 — May the What?

Friday Show | Avoiderdragon

So I decided to come up with a weekly show every Friday (or Saturday if I happen to be slow) wherein I talk about whatever topics came up during the week. This website and the YouTube channel could use more regular content, so a weekly thing like this could solve a lot of the stagnation problems that have been plaguing this place for quite a while now. At the very least, this could give me something to do in those idle moments. On the other hand, it’s something more to do during those unusually busy days. (more…)
