Adorable robotic murder-machine Bastion is the first ‘Overwatch’ Lego set

Blizzard and Lego recently revealed a partnership to create building sets based on the game Overwatch, and we now know the first set you’ll be able to build. Fittingly, it’s of Bastion, the chunky robotic murder machine who already kind of looks like it’s made out of Lego pieces.

The Lego Overwatch Omnic Bastion set is 182 pieces and costs $25. It’s available to purchase now on Blizzard’s gear website, and as you can see from the images, it doesn’t simply feature Bastion in its normal beige skin. Instead, Bastion is in an orange setup and it even includes the little bird Ganymede who rests on its shoulder.

For younger players looking to use it during play sessions, the Lego Bastion can swivel at the waist, and move its arms. This way, you can set Bastion up on a corner and watch as it tears through the enemy team before they have a chance to use any countering abilities. Fun for almost everyone!

You won’t find the Omnic Bastion outside of the Blizzard store, but we know that several other characters from Overwatch will be included in other sets. An earlier promotional video featured a talking Tracer mini-figure, and it looks like Soldier 76, Mei, Widowmaker, Winston, and Reaper will also be coming to life as Lego figures at some point in the future.

It’s interesting that Blizzard opted to go with Lego for its building toys this time around, as the company has previously worked with Mega Bloks to create World of Warcraft-themed sets. These featured similarly sized mini-figures from the game as well as vehicles and famous locations. Mega Bloks — now under its Mega Construx line — also produces toys based on Halo and Destiny. The latter game is published by Activision, which is a sister company to Blizzard.

Which Overwatch sets are you hoping to see from Lego next? We’d love to see a similar Orisa figure or a large D.Va mech suit with a smaller figure inside. Given the rich lore Blizzard has developed for the game thus far, the possibilities are nearly endless, and we can’t wait to see what’s next.

Lorelei and the Laser Eyes could be one of 2024’s best and boldest games
A character stands in front of a cracked mirror in Lorelei and the Laser Eyes.

If you’ve been following indie publisher Annapurna Interactive over the last two years, you might be familiar with Lorelei and the Laser Eyes. The new project from Sayonara Wild Hearts developer Simogo has gotten a spotlight at a handful of live-stream showcases since 2022, with trailers teasing its eerie tone and puzzling world. While we’ve known those details for a while, there’s still one burning question that remains: What the hell is it?

After a long wait, I finally have the answer to that question. Annapurna Interactive lifted the lid on the mysterious game, giving me unrestricted access to a full PC build of it. Though I’m still making my way through its puzzle-filled haunted hotel, I’ve played enough to get a good sense of what Simogo is delivering. I’ve also played enough to say, with confidence, that Lorelei and the Laser Eyes might just be one of 2024’s boldest and best games.
Puzzle-box horror
Though Lorelei and the Laser Eyes seems totally foreign when first glancing at its striking black-and-white art style, it's actually fairly easy to explain. It’s essentially a 1990s horror game with all the combat removed. My journey begins when I arrive at a creepy hotel where I’ll be helping an eccentric Italian auteur film his latest avant-garde masterpiece. There’s a lot of story there, doled out through scattered writing and occasional cutscene breaks, but the bulk of my time is spent solving the hotel.
