Check out the Overwatch Winter Wonderland 2017 skins and emotes – Orisa got a puppy!

Break out the blankets and warm cocoa, it's time for Overwatch Winter Wonderland 2017. Soldier 76 gets an extra padded and comfy-looking skin called Alpine 76. First the amazing devil skin for Halloween, and now this Jack Frost / ice pixie skin called "Rime". Meanwhile, Junkrat gets a summer-themed skin called Beachrat because he's from Australia, and it's currently the warm season there.

Well, that was... still pretty vague, but at least this aspect of the Death Stranding world has a name, and we know what it does and who it does and doesn't affect. It's a bit of a heady concept, but Kojima summed it up simply: "Death will never pull you out of the game". And there you have it: two years

4K gallery: the beautiful painted landscapes of Okami

As our review says, it's a grand, sweeping adventure to lose yourself in, with a gorgeous art style based on traditional Japanese ink wash paintings. Okami is a slow game designed to be soaked in, not rushed through. If you've never played Okami before, you're in for a treat. Despite widespread critical acclaim, Okami didn't sell as well as Capcom expected in 2006 and Clover disbanded soon after. Nippon is one of the most beautiful, evocative, and original game worlds to explore on PC, and it's
