Breakfast Topic: Overwatch and new heroes So I was thinking about Overwatch, something I do a lot for a game I don’t play. I’ve gone so far as to finally buy the game, even, and yet I’m never moved to play it thanks to the state of my vision. On a good day I can participate but I don’t have that...

Know Your Lore: Overwatch’s ongoing story Overwatch — the game being released on May 24 — doesn’t really have an overarching story. It’s not that type of game:  it’s a multiplayer first-person shooter, not an RPG. But Overwatch, the team highlighted in the title, certainly has a lot of story going for it. And that’s what makes Overwatch interesting. Sure, the...

Zarya and Overwatch’s second Omnic Crisis Other than the Overwatch agents that were directly involved with taking down the omnic uprising and saving the world, no one knows what really started the Omnic Crisis. However, reports were pretty specific with their references, pointing out that Overwatch took out the “force behind the uprising,” rather than simply wiping the omnics out. Given...

(But watch out, because it ends with something of a cliffhanger.) Check out...

Widowmaker

With the launch of Blizzard’s new first person shooter in May, expect a flood of Overwatch toons to come to Heroes of the Storm in the near future. And now that we have the confirmation of Tracer entering the Nexus in April, this leads us to wonder which of the other 20 announced playable Overwatch...

Overwatch vinyl figures coming from Funko Funko Pop vinyls have become the ultimate in nerdy collectors’ items, so it’s never a surprise when a new franchise appears in vinyl form — I admit even I’m a sucker for the siren call of these giant-headed monstrosities. Now Funko has announced a line of Overwatch figurines. The first line of Overwatch vinyls includes...

Soldier 76 as Captain America and Reaper as the Winter Soldier What we’ve seen of the mythos of Overwatch is built upon long-held comic book tropes — in this, the Blizzard Entertainment developers’ passion for comic books is unabashedly present. Winston is a reversal of DC’s Grodd. Tracer, though a teleporter like Nightcrawler, might be an FPS’s closest approximation to the speedster archetype. Pharah’s powersuit is...
