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?
Thanks for watching I’m bigfisch for Game Watch Today.
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 let’s talk about what maps could be included in Overwatch 2
So let’s get right into it. We already got 2 full playable new maps / game modes at Blizzcon 2019 for Overwatch 2 in the push map of Toronto and story map in Brazil. In some of the developer talks they discussed how the new Overwatch engine is upgraded and they will be able to do exciting new things to the maps, like new effects and larger more complex maps (like we see in Toronto preview).
They haven’t said the door is closed on making maps for Overwatch 1 but let’s assume that it is so the dev team can focus on releasing any new maps for Overwatch 2.
We already know that we will get Toronto as a new map and game mode and Brazil (Lucio’s home) as a new story mission map.
We also know that they will have to release more than just one map for a new game mode so we are already looking at the release of multiple new maps dropped at release. Which is pretty exciting!
The introduction of story missions gives us a whole new world of lore that could be infused into Overwatch just by adding things like Lucio’s recording studio and night club. And also new locations like inside of giant omnic airships!
What other maps could we see? If we pull out the very early concept maps that were released to us we see a few that have been released. But a few that could still be used.
One map that everyone has been asking for is the underwater map of Galapagos.
The Amazon is a map that could still be in the works and could have a really cool tie into Temple of Anubis.
The IRIS (was combined with India) but could still be a really cool story mission map for Zenyatta.
Although we have a lot of maps based in the US San Joaquin could be an awesome McCree or Ashe related map.
And the Bayou would definitely be an Ashe related map and tie into the Mardi Gras themed skin we got this year.
Think for a minute the possibilities, we could go into outer space in an interdimensional space ship or even to other planets (I mean we went to the moon) or an ice cavern at the north pole or the bermuda triangle.
But there are a lot more locations in some of the comics and shorts and early artwork that could easily turn into maps. Did I miss any of the important ones on your list.
According to highscoreheroes on twitter. Twitch drops have revealed a new Overwatch weekly challenge coming to Overwatch possibly this week (tomorrow). The drops show “Mardi Gras” themed sprays and notes “Overwatch Ashe Mardi Gras – bundle”.
Tuesday the 25 is “Fat Tuesday” and the day Overwatch drops new content (typically). And Wednesday the 26 is Mardi Gras so this is all looking like good possibilities. Hopefully we get a new Ashe story as well.
