Something that Overwatch fans have quietly pinned for over the better part of the past decade has been the ability to romance the game’s characters. And finally, Blizzard delivered wiyh the Loverwatch dating game, a visual novel that lets you romance Mercy, Genji, and has a secret ending that we’ve made a handy guide for. But honestly, we have only one question: Bastion route DLC when?

Even the bleak world of the Dota 2 lore has moments of romance, and we explore them in The love stories of the Dota 2 Universe. From flings with fish-people to Skywrath Mage’s crush on Vengeful Spirit, there’s romance galore in Dota 2. I guess we’re treating Dota: Dragon’s Blood as non-canon for this article though, because I don’t see Davion x Mirana on that list…

Back again with Dota 2, and this time we’re here for the cute things. Honestly, Valentine’s isn’t always about couples. Sometimes it’s about pouring love into cute cuddly things. I mean, the shops are filled with teddy bears and plushies covered in hearts atm? And what’s the Dota 2 in-game equivalent of a plushie, if not a courier?

For once, you don’t have to cancel your gaming plans for date night, as Apex Legends transforms its duos into Dates. There’s a lot to love about this mode, from “Cutest Couple” replacing Champion Squad, and the ability to spam “I Love You” to your squadmate. But frankly, if we were getting third-partied this much on real-life dates, we’d probably give it up entirely.
