Overwatch once again drops a Halloween event on us with the same old recycled game mode of Junkenstein’s Revenge with a few added modifications to get new sprays for completing challenges.
The real deal in the Overwatch events that everyone looks forward to though is not the game mode but the NEW SKINS. This year Jeff pulled all the stops and gave us a skin for every remaining hero that didn’t have a Halloween skin! Halloween is now the first event to have an event skin for every hero (well except Baptiste).
New skins this year include. D.Va Genji Hanzo Winston Sigma Echo Brigitte Sombra
We also get new sprays as well and voicelines and other good stuff. Be sure to log into Overwatch to see them all as well as claim your free Halloween lootbox. The event lasts until November 3, 2020.
A second Overwatch novel is scheduled for release in June 2021 and will focus on McCree and Ashe.
Players will be able to learn a more about the Overwatch lore. After several comic books and the novel “The Hero of Numbani” scheduled for early 2021, the release of a second novel has just been leaked by Amazon.
This information hasn’t been officialized by Blizzard. It’s necessary to wait for a press release from the publisher to really know the release date and the price of this new novel.
Centered on the creation of the Deadlock Gang and its key members (Ashe, B.O.B. and McCree) the novel will be released on June 1, 2021. Written by Lyndsay Ely, the author is already familiar with the western/science fiction genre as shown by her latest book entitled “Gunslinger Girl”.
In the years after the Omnic Crisis, the American Southwest is ruled by vultures looking to profit off the chaos. The West is ripe for the taking, and Elizabeth Caledonia Ashe intends to write her name across it.
When Ashe is arrested yet again on the morning of her high school graduation, her aloof, old-money parents decide to disinherit her from the family fortune. To steal back what’s rightfully hers, Ashe teams up with her omnic butler, B.O.B., and local ruffian Jesse McCree for a series of heists, catapulting the trio into a game of fast money and dangerous alliances. Along the way, Ashe discovers that family isn’t just about blood. It’s about the people who’ve got your back when your back’s against the wall.Lyndsay Ely on Overwatch Novel #2
You can pre-order the novel for €9.89 ($11.65) on French Amazon for release on June 1, 2021..
The Story of Overwatch is basically Avengers: Age of Ultron
This is Game Watch Today and I’m big fisch.
Hold onto something. I am about to break this down for you that the Story of Overwatch is basically Avengers: Age of Ultron.
You have a person building autonomous robots for defense purposes and oops the master program has become sentient, causing the other robots to want to destroy humans because humans are the problem. Some robots gain free will and become good. Meanwhile the task force that essentially started the robot uprising is now forced to put it down. After the war is over everything is changed as well as the team that was forced to fight the robots is now fractured, leading to more movies and games and even more money.
Sounds familiar, yeah I thought so.
That’s it. What do you think, did I get it right or miss it by a mile?

So when Overwatch began development Jeff said “team we have to make a game but you know what I really love Pixar movies and who doesn’t (am I right)… So lets make all of our characters for our new game based on Pixar characters because no one will notice right?”
Here’s my list of Overwatch characters that are actually Pixar characters, I won’t explain my choices because this video would be six hours so just use your imagination.
Andy = Soldier 76
Andy’s Mom = Mercy
Sid = Reaper
Lightning McQueen = McCree
Buzz Lightyear = Pharah
Sully = Winston
Dug = Wrecking Ball
Mr. Pricklepants = Sigma
The Manticore = Zarya
Captain B. McCrea (Wall-E) = Roadhog
Joy = D.Va
Sid’s Baby head monster = Orisa
Mr. Incredible = Reinhardt
Edna Mode = Ana
Combat Carl = Baptiste
Joy = Brigitte
DJ Blu-Jay = Lucio
Merida = Moira
Forky = Zenyatta
Jessie = Ashe
Wall-E = Bastion
Emperor Zurg = Doomfist
Ev-E = Echo
Sushi Chef = Genji
Anger = Hanzo
Bomb Voyage = Junkrat
Sadness = Mei
Grandma from Coco = Sombra
Disgust = Symmetra
Mr. Potato Head = Torbjorn
Dash = Tracer
Colette Tatou = Widowmaker
That’s it that’s my list of Overwatch heroes as Pixar characters. Which ones would you change or did I get them all correct?
Today I would like to explain what Valorant is from an Overwatch players perspective.
Thanks for watching Game Watch Today I’m Big Fisch.
Before I get into the comparison, let me say that Valorant is a good game if you like the Counter Strike or Rainbow Six Siege Type Genre of games. It’s not a bad game, honest Yawn…
Now let’s compare Valorant to Overwatch from a biased Overwatch players perspective.
First: Valorant is boring AF. The games take for-ev-er. So think of a Capture Point Match in Overwatch, except one team has to defend the point and they can put the point wherever the f they want on the map. And then compound that with doing that same thing over for 4 times and then switching sides from attack to defence and do it 4 more times, I was in one game that lasted 2 hours. TF has this kind of time…
Second: Die Die Die You die during a round you are dead. No respawn you sit and wait listening to the one guy scream about going to point “A”. SO BORING.
Third: Voice Chat You thought Overwatch was bad with angry people yelling at one another. Every game I played there’s at least one jackwagon screaming at everyone in chat. Like legit losing his mind even when we were winning.
Four: Buy in Phase Before each round you have what’s called a “buy in phase” which means you choose your weapons and abilities you get for that round. This is to me is dumb just give me the stuff to play the game, if I wanted to make choices I would go play final fantasy! So that means your abilities that you would normally use as many times as it can recharge during an Overwatch match well now you only get to use that ability like twice if you have enough money to buy two uses..
Five: MF campers. If you never experienced a game with campers in them, a camper is a jackass that stays in one spot the entire game murdering everyone. It’s annoying and dumb. Overwatch actually does a pretty good job of having a lot of movement to remove camping (believe it or not).
Six: This game is so boring Sorry did I already mention that, well it is boring and slow paced and also boring.
Seven: Characters with no class They say the characters are class based like healer damage etc but they are not pretty much each character is the same as the other except for a few abilities that change but that’s it. Everyone picks from the same weapon buy in and it’s boring as heck.
Eight: Weapon Skins only The only “cosmetic” changes you can make to your character is to equip different weapon skins. Wow soooo innovative.
That’s it my Overwatch players perspective on Valorant there’s some more I can discuss but now I’m bored talking about it so onto the next video.
