The Queue: Culinary Disaster Edition

The Overwatch Official Cookbook came out today! I got my grubby hands on a copy, and so tomorrow night over on the Blizzard Watch Twitch channel we’re doing our first cooking stream. It’s packed with tiny lore tidbits, ranging from small details to bigger confirmations. It confirms in print that Jack Morrison had an ex-boyfriend, for instance — they weren’t just “gal pals.” We knew that via context clues, but it wasn’t explicitly stated beyond a head writer’s Twitter account. It also adds in a few small details of the universe that seem pretty irrelevant but are still fun and add some flavor to the universe — Torbjorn’s wife makes a killer apple pie, and is also a chemical engineer. Wait, that makes her a strong contender for Hero 32! I’m going to have to rethink this…

Now I need to clean my kitchen, so while I avoid doing that here’s a Queue.

The Queue: Good times with lore and other chatter

Welcome back to The Queue, our daily Q&A feature for all of Blizzard’s games! Have a question for the Blizzard Watch staff? Leave it in the comments!

Do you like Lore Watch? Then good news, we’re going weekly! The first weekly episode of Lore Watch will be hitting RSS feeds on Wednesday — and you’ll be getting a weekly episode every Wednesday after that. Patrons will still be getting a new episode every Sunday, right after we wrap up recording. And because I can’t possibly say it enough, thank you to all Patreon supporters both old and new for making a weekly show happen. We couldn’t have done it without you!

Now let’s get to all those Queue questions, shall we?

The Queue: Well, this is awkward

Welcome back to The Queue, our daily Q&A feature for all of Blizzard’s games! Have a question for the Blizzard Watch staff? Leave it in the comments!

Oh hello there. I’m sure you didn’t expect to see me today. No, no, it’s okay — I mean it’s a little weird to be here on a Friday, but it’s not as weird as say…running into your alternate reality counterpart that could maybe be considered a sister or, I don’t know, a fraternal-twin-but-not-quite and regardless of which they happen to be it’s just going to make any upcoming family reunions really awkward.

Is there a paradox effect going on here? If the two of them decide to shake hands, are they going to end reality as we know it? Inquiring minds would like to know, please. Until then, we’ll just have to settle for answering your questions. Let’s get to it!

The Queue: Merry Patchmas!

I hope you have a great Patchmas! I have my auction house mods ready to list all kinds of herbs, and I’m super excited for my worgen’s new face. I will say that I’m a little sad, because I felt like the “first day with all these teeth” smile really suited the personality of my pet-taming Druid. After all, that was literally the story we played through in Gilneas. But it’s been a bit. She’s probably used to them now.

Let’s get to Queuin’!

The Queue: Imagine if dinosaurs could be vampires

Pegomastax was almost certainly not a vampire. I mean, it had weird, elongated fangs, especially for an herbivore, but it was almost certainly a normal member of the Heterodontosauridae and not a vampire. Which is good, because if it were a vampire, it might well have survived all the way to the present day and then you’d have to worry about a vampire with 65 million or so years of experience coming after you when you slept.

With all that experience you would never hear it until it had those teeth in your throat.

This is the Queue. Don’t worry, there are no such things as vampire dinosaurs.


The Queue: Untitled Queue Simulator

Here’s a fun one to ponder while y’all read over this: If The Queue were turned into a simulator-style game, what would it look like? I think the characters you could play as would be fairly obvious, but would there be bonus characters? How would one unlock Jovan? And how would you be scored? What a fun concept for everyone to think on!

While you do that, let’s Queue.
