We’ve got big news not just from around the video game universe but for the Gamer Heroes podcast as well. First, we talk about the Xbox Live Spring sale that includes cheap major titles like Halo 5, GTAV, Gears of War 4, and even some cheap older titles for the xBox 360 like Red Dead Redemption, plus a discount on custom controllers. Then it’s off to Nintendo news with a bit about the NES Classic being discontinued as well as some of our thoughts on the items that came out of this week’s Nintendo Direct that focused on ARMS, new Joy-Cons, and even a FAST RMX update.

Then it’s all Overwatch as we let you guys know about our Overwatch: Uprising stream that happened on Facebook! You can catch our play through of the base event here and the “all heroes” version here.
