Welcome to another GamesBeat weekly roundup!

Most of our staff spent the week covering the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, checking out new games and technologies and getting to hear from some of the best minds in the industry. Also, Blizzard revealed a new hero for Overwatch, and Oculus made some of its VR stuff cheaper.

Oh, and something called the Nintendo Switch launched … along with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Enjoy, and have a great weekend!
