Since the end of the Omnic Crisis, the Mobile Exo-Force of the Korean Army (MEKA) has defended Korea against attacks by a massive omnic colossus (known as the “gwishin”) that rises from the sea from time to time. Originally, they utilized drone mechs, but MEKA were forced to turn to human pilots once the gwishin evolved to disrupt their networked control systems.
Hello PlayStation gamers and heroes of Overwatch! I’m here to tell you about the newest addition to our game’s cast of colorful characters: Wrecking Ball.
There’s more to Wrecking Ball the hero than just a robotic ball armed with quad cannons, as some of you may already know. Really “Wrecking Ball” is just a persona that was crafted by Hammond, a super-intelligent hamster, when he began fighting as a gladiator in Junkertown. To help explain the distinction between Hammond the hamster and Wrecking Ball the hero, let me step back a little bit to the beginning of the character’s story.

Before we sign off for the year, we wanted to celebrate the creators who make not only PlayStation.Blog, but this industry in its entirety possible. It’s these studios who create the worlds we yearn to escape to, who write the stories upon whose every word we hang. It’s thanks to them that we can do what we love to do.
Let’s get the obvious stuff out of the way first: Diablo III looks good on PS4. The demo I played didn’t stutter or hitch once — 1080p and 60FPS or better throughout, as confirmed by Production Director John Hight when I spoke with him on the show floor — even when three other players jumped in. Everything looks tack-sharp, and plenty of extra bits have been added or tweaked in Diablo III’s PS4 version. Just wait ’till you see the glow of a freshly dropped health globe reflected in a pool of stagnant water.
