Thanks to Overwatch's remappable controls, Zak can comfortably enjoy playing the game with every character. He shared the following thank you letter he wrote to Blizzard:

Dear Blizzard,

First off I want to congratulate you on the launch of Overwatch. It is an amazing game and you should be proud. It is jam packed with so many exciting moments for every type of gamer. My girlfriend loves the lore, my buddy can't stop smiling when he gets a hook with Roadhog, and me? I love the options menu.

I was born with Cerebral Palsy. I can't walk and have very limited use of my hands. I love video games of all shapes and sizes and have been playing since I was 3 years old. I play them when I'm happy, I play them when I'm sad, and I've started and strengthened some of my best friendships because of them.

Some games allude me though. You see, the way my hands are I am only able to use one hand for one action at one time per hand. So essentially I can only press two buttons simultaneously. Because of this I have always been limited to certain play styles and characters in games. Yasuo in League of Legends is a no go for me because of all the mechanics at play. Grapplers in fighting games usually off limits because they mostly require simultaneous button presses. Shooters are the biggest offender though. It's a must to be able to move, aim, and fire at the same time and I am only able to do two at a time. This pigeonholes me into using shotguns... thats it.

I'm rambling. I just wanted to thank you, Blizzard, for having near endless control customization in Overwatch. I don't know if this was your goal, but because of your extensive options I am able to play every character in the roster and it feels great. Because of you I made my first snipe in a video game today.

Thank you Blizzard.

Fan Forever, Zak

Square Enix, Eidos Montreal, and Open Bionics released this promotional video, which showcases quite a bit of promising progress on their combined efforts to create a cybernetic hand just like the one Adam Jensen uses in Deus Ex



And, maybe the most excitingly Open Bionics plans to make the bionic hand open source, and available to download for anyone with a 3D printer. Plus, Open Bionics is in collaboration with Razer to create a finger-mapping system that will allow anyone else with all their working limbs intact, to still operate the hand remotely.

This builds off an earlier move by Konami, when the company built one fan a Metal Gear Solid-inspired prosthetic arm.

The maze covers nearly eight acres at Stoughton Farm in Newark Valley, New York. Talk about bringing the 80s back.

"My wife, Deb, decides the theme," Tim Stoughton told ABC News. "She just liked the idea of the Mario brothers because everybody pretty much knows what they are and it’d be fun for the kids to see."

Let's be real, this was fun for us all to see!

John Ramirez recently hit us all with a glorious idea for a Totoro-themed park, and if you're like me, you're still not quite over that beautiful concept. Can we please make that happen?

Well, Ramirez is back at it again with an exciting design for what a Castle in the Sky theme park could come together as; and it's pretty much offiically time to figure out how we're going to make at least one of these ingenious concepts happen. See below for an image of the Laputa ride design:
