Overwatch Servers Overloaded? Snag These 5 Video Game Deals Instead

Published

Overwatch is kicking off its anniversary event tomorrow at 11 am ET, and with so much hype surrounding it, the servers are bound to be overloaded. Maybe you can't secure a spot to play your favorite main. Or perhaps you'd prefer not to play with casual gamers who are only there for the anniversary perks. Whatever the reason, check out our picks for the week's best video game deals, and you can find solid alternatives to entertain yourself if you can't get your squad together.
