This week we locked Billy in a bunker for his own safety to avoid prolonged exposure to the fun and addictive Overwatch. John Krisch fills in the empty chair and joins our regular hosts to discuss Overwatch's characters, game modes, and "story". After covering the ways Overwach tweaks typical multiplayer FPS conventions, we discuss whether the game's diverse cast skews towards focus-tested pandering or "authentic" representation (like most things, the truth is somewhere in the middle). We finish up by discussing the game's monetization scheme and Gino rants about his disdain for Reaper ult plays of the game.
