Overwatch has been an undeniable success in the past month and there’s really no sign of it stopping any time soon. As much as we all love Overwatch here at Steambuysell, there are still some things that make us boil uncontrollably with rage as we sail through match after match. Also, redeem code.
Below is a nifty little vid outlining some of the more general things we all tend to hate:
Overwatch: MEI IS NOT BAE
Screw Mei. Seriously. Apart from that, there are only a couple of things I agree with because some of the other issues the creators of the video present are a bit nitpicky and on the “L2P” side of things. But my biggest agreement with the video is that lack of a story campaign. I truly love the multiplayer and esports panache it has, but a lot of the love for this game from fans is their fascination with the characters and world of Overwatch.
We all want to know about Tracer, her history, current well-being, and possibly her dating history. We want to see what really happened with the Shimada brothers in the past and their current relationship, as well as if it’s true that the Shimada’s are the onry ones to contror the dragons. And what about the other heroes that haven’t been in the animated spotlight yet? The hell does Mei actually do? Is she really chubby under that coat? Or does she just have a ridiculous bust size? Why does Zarya look like a random Tumblr girl? Is there something going on between Mercy, Soldier 76, and Reaper? Love triangle, maybe? Did they ever have a threesome? The questions are endless in that regard and, hopefully, Blizzard can answer them soon through either more animated shorts or, even better, a full fledged story mode campaign in the near future.
Overwatch is an amazing game and has even more potential in the future. Let’s hope that Blizzard knows what they’re doing and continue to improve upon this already stellar IP.
