I actually forgot Blizzcon was today. There's so much new information here (and right after an event too)!

Hopefully this stuff goes live on the PR soon. Moira looks insane even if she seems to be somewhat of a copy of Sym... though Sym is great so I'm not too mad about that.

New short featuring Reinhardt: 

(WARNING: THE FEELS WILL HIT HARD ;-;)

And new hero - Moira - A Talon Healer who uses chemicals and area of effect attacks.

Also new map that isn't going to be lore based but instead based on other Blizzard games:

 

So... Moira reminds me of Symmetra and Zennyatta. She's a scientist witch. Interesting...

Looking at her backstory video and suddenly it hits me on how Reaper got his powers.

Surprised we're getting another healer already. I guess it makes sense in hindsight seeing as Blizz is trying to incentivize more people to play heals and the healer class in general was one of the smaller ones at the time.

Having just come from PTR, Brigite is definitely a fun one let me tell ya. Get a group of her going and it's literally one giant kill wave as each hit heals the people around you. XD As far as I've seen, she seems like a great addition to the game. Though, she does have that same small problem that Orisa has in that most if not all her moves are basically from another hero. Her melee and shield are Rein. Her heals is Sym's old shield move. Her shield bash is Doomfist mixed with a bit of McCree's flashbang. And her ult is basically Lucio's. The only two new things she has is her hook shot (which is really just a projectile move for her) and her passive.

Still though, the combination of them all makes for a unique experience that I'm enjoying. Though, it's a bit odd to see her in healer now that I think about it. She does a hell of a lot of dps and can certainly take a hit.

So, moving off of the Hero 27 hype, I've actually begun creating a project on Overwatch PS4 through the custom games creator. 

Inspired by Team Fortress 2's Super Spy and VS Saxton Hale modes, and Dokkan Battle's boss battles of 6v1, I decided to try create some boss fights in Overwatch. They're not perfect but hey, if you wanna give it a try, I'll post the current ones I've created below. 

Boss Fight 1: The Warrior Who Found Peace - Genji 

The Shamada Clan has left a legacy of crime amidst the world, and with Overwatch out of commission, there is no one to stop the clan's misdeeds. However, the clan's plans to retake the Shamada Temple that they had been driven out of are being impeded by the final warrior who wishes to protect it, part of the legendary Shamada Brothers - Genji. 

Take on this ultra hard battle against the ninja risen from the grave and retake the Temple!

Boss Fight 2: A Knight's Last Stand - Reinhardt (CURRENTLY UNDER TESTING)

Decades Ago, in the original Omnic War, an army stood forth against the assaults of murderous Omnics who torn the army apart and stole the castle, and the kingdom away from it's residents. Many perished in this war, and the effects of it are still felt today.

The anniversary of this war has arrived, and one of the surviving knights has decided to return to this lost kingdom to pay respects to his mentor who perished in the war. Unfortunately for Reinhardt, his remembrance would be short lived as the group known as Talon has decided to attack the castle in order to find the original plans that the knights used in their attempts to stop the Omnics. 

Can you take on the Knight who will protect this lost castle to his last breath?

From what I can tell, the bosses this time around are going to be Widow, Genji, and possibly Orisa. Either way, it's incredible that the models go beyond simple palette swaps that doesn't work in-canon (Orisa in the Uprising event last year).

I really hope they keep Archives going as a thing. I have a friend who isn't really into the PvP stuff but would probably enjoy PvE a lot more. It frustrates me that PvE isn't a consistent game mode, especially since by all accounts, Archives/Uprising shouldn't be tied to a seasonal event, unlike everything else. It's a clear back-story filler event to keep them going til the Anniversary event in May/June, but Uprising still remains the best and most interesting event to date.

As much as I love Overwatch, it shows one of the biggest flaws of the game, they limit themselves far too much with far too little reasoning for it. I can get some specific events like Mei's Snowball Offensive for example, but why on earth can't Blizzard just implement a game mode selection in place of arcade, keep the arcade boxes, and just give us consistent access to brawls/game modes I actually enjoy playing instead of giving me an immensely restrained timeframe for it. 

Then use the seasonal events to update the events with new maps and modes. Lucio Ball did the exact same thing, as did Capture the Flag, adding in a new map and a comp mode, why can't we have those two features be the exclusive event stuff while we actually get to retain the event all year around? I know for a fact I'd probably play more if I could switch up between the likes of Comp, QP, Uprising, Junkenstein and whatever else, instead of jumping on occasionally now, getting bored with shit teams in QP, and abandoning it til the next event for the cycle to repeat itself.

Overwatch Archives is now live until the 30th! Experience the mission that was the beginning of the end for Overwatch in Retribution, and relive the Uprising! Just beware-- the patch is pretty large.

Well I'm down with the looks if anything. I wonder how he'll play.

This one's been teased ever since the Lunar Colony went up so it's nice to see Blizz finally deliver on all that. Really thought he was going to be a monkey though in order to fit more closely to Winston. Although, this basically means that the moon was used for testing all sorts of hyper intelligent animals (beyond gorillas) so the floodgates have just been opened for new character designs. *crosses fingers for Jetpack Cat*
