Had this idea yesterday of drawing the Overwatch people as high school kids with the uniform from their own country. Here is the first go, I also have a sketch of Tracer that I will upload once I colour it.
So Tracer was revealed to have a girlfriend back home by Blizzard in their Overwatch comics earlier today. Which is neat, no complaints from me on that.
What’s interesting to me is some of the comments I’ve been seeing. While most of them have ranged from positive to indifferent, there are, of course, a few negative ones.
Some people seem to see this as nothing more than Blizzard “pandering” to the LGBTQ community or SJWs in general, which made me think about another franchise.
In 1986, Metroid was released. Its ending had a surprise reveal that has been widely celebrated in gaming history: the badass, armored bounty hunter Samus Aran you just spent hours playing as was a woman the whole time.
It makes me wonder, though. What if Metroid wasn’t released in 1986? What if the first Metroid game came out in 2017? Would Nintendo face a little backlash of their own? Accusations of “pandering?” Or of a “publicity stunt” to drive sales?
headcanon: your favorite flavor of ice cream is something kind of unusual, like pistachio or cherry cordial or something other than the Napoleon Trifecta of chocolate, vanilla and strawberry
Haha. Well, yes and no. I really like strawberry, but my favorite ice cream is not one of those three. It’s not really all that weird either though.
I like mint ice cream. Preferably with brownies in it, although that’s not a thing I can ever just… find. If I want to not make it myself, I have to buy it as a bilzzard or a flurry or something like that for a ridiculously trumped up charge, lol. But yeah. Mint is my favorite. =)
there’s full of hate in the tag of your favorite character, I know how it feels
//I just don’t get the vehement hated for Gency in the fandom. I always hear that;
1.Gency or Mercy isn’t straight (or bi). This really can’t be proven until we get word from Bilzzard. I mean at this point they can have any sexual orientation, but people always just dismiss it as “they must be gay.”
2.Doctor/Patient relationships are terrible. By that logic Mercy shouldn’t be shipped with anyone, since she has likely treated every member of Overwatch. And she treated what was years ago in the canon, so I doubt they hardly see each other as doctor and patient.
3. Mercy is bad cause she made him a cyborg. Do you really think Angela “Outspoken critic of war and weapons.” Ziegler would do that to a person without their consent? And not even in a “Agree or die.” way. I am 100% certain they stabilized Genji and would of gave him basic cybernetic replacements should he of declined. If anything she would probably be the one person telling him not to accept that deal
