'Why A Feature-Length 'Overwatch' Movie Might Not Be The Best Idea' BY Josh Hannam
If you are an avid gamer, then you will know that Blizzard Entertainment's Overwatch was pretty hyped before its release. With a surprising amount of narrative depth, the fans are asking (read: begging) for the game to be adapted into a feature-length film.
