This is how I remember the default (“Arcade”) map from Crazy Taxi. Lots of lost hours (and missed work) from the Dreamcast version of this game. Deliberate quirks of the burst and drift “moves” seeded some surprisingly deep gameplay, once you got really into the nuances of the physics, though real, competitive high-level play didn’t seem to catch on in a big way in the US.
And, christ, that soundtrack. Scorched into my brain. “Yah yah yah yah yah…”
I’m sorry but the amount of content blizzard released for Overwatch over the past year is pretty pathetic, somehow over a year they’ve only released 2 (non arcade) maps and 3 characters, for a £40 game with heavy micro transactional events in I expected more
Me and Sarky came up with a pretty cute lil game today while checking out the new arcade maps in a custom game.
The other went Roadhog and the other Junkrat, and the one going Rat went hiding and lied down on a spot and stayed still the whole game. They were only supposed to use voice lines to give hints for their location, and Hog was also allowed to call out. (also Rat was allowed to get up to release the riptire and run around with it, but was then required to lie down again.)
So basically just hide and seek with “Marco!” “Polo!” tactics. xD But it was hella fun.
Alright so let’s look at all the maps we have for OVW so far. We have Temple of Anubis, Hanamura, Eichenwalde, Volskaya, Route 66, Dorado, Gibraltar, Numbani, King’s Row, Hollywood, Lijiang Tower, Oasis, Ilios, and Nepal. We also have Antarctica but because it is a special arcade-only map I won’t count it.
So for most of these maps we have a character or characters associated with it/from there
Hanamura for the Shimadas
King’s Row for Tracer
Route 66 for McCree
Gibraltar for Winston
So on so forth
In fact the only maps we don’t have someone associated with are Oasis, Ilios, and Hollywood.
Now, because Orisa has been released for Numbani I believe that each map- with the exception of perhaps Hollywood because it is so iconic and we already have a lot of American characters- will eventually have a character connected to it
With Doomfist being teased, I’ve come to the conclusion that they will either add another map or tie his backstory to either Ilios or Oasis. I have a hard time believing that they would add a new map and new character tied together in one go, and I also believe that the OVW team will attempt to fixate the original maps first, so it is my prediction that Doomfist will be from Ilios or Greece in general
I’ve always been inspired by and love finding new playlists here on Tumblr and I’ve even discovered new bands/artists that are now my top favorites by listening to playlists people make on here. So,I made this playlist with songs that I’ve been listening a lot to lately. Hope y'all like these songs as much as I do. If you want to listen to this mix I put it up on 8tracks. ♥
