Bei :wub:

Pinched from Resetera:
Here's a summary of Overwatch 2 news in a shortened way:

    Complete story experience with story missions, PvE modes, remastered maps
    Hero missions are highly replayable cooperative experiences
    All 31 heroes + more are getting upgraded looks to them.
    Multiple new heroes already confirmed, but won't be talking about yet
    With Overwatch 2, they wanna redefine what a sequel means. For all Overwatch players, you will get to play on all of the same maps as Overwatch 2 players and same heroes. It's a shared multiplayer environment where no one gets left behind.
    All Overwatch progress matters, everything carries over to Overwatch 2.

I played the first one and got bored quickly though I did like some of the character designs.

Won't be gambling on this though.

So is this just the original Overwatch but with a story mode added?

Less than a month after the original finally come to Switch as well.

Long Live Switch Squad!

I honestly think with these new games the China thing will be mostly overlooked now. Shame. banana splits.

Bravo for you. Is all you do is shout on the internet, or do you actually get your hands dirty in the real world? I sincerely doubt it of course, that takes actual effort. Correct me if I'm wrong, however.

I have no opinion about this as I played the first game and kind of liked it for a while and just left because I found it a bit fast paced for me.

I give this news a giant shrug of indifference.

What is the real-world direct action you want in this situation? Tafdolphin doesn't live in Santa Monica or Hong Kong, I don't see how he could picket or protest Blizzard or China offline.

I was talking generally, on a day to day basis closer to home. In my experience those who shout loudest and longest on the internet actually do very little, if anything at all, in the real world. Taf is quite vocal on the internet and thrills at berating others for not sharing his beliefs and I'm just curious if he actually takes that passion and applies it in said real world. I suspect in the last 12 months he, like many other internet warriors, has actually done dick all where it doesn't involve a keyboard.

In fact, it's a question I'd forward to most here if I'm honest.

I also played as the sonic guy who also heals and speeds people up :shifty: .

I'm all about that variety of play styles.

I wonder what sort of answer would satisfy you here? What level of personal activism would make my opinioning acceptable? A few protests a year? A monthly contribution to various international aid charities? What?

strawberry float Blizzard. I'm allowed to say that. You're allowed to take a weird personal offence at me saying it too.

Life goes on.

That's what I thought, Taf. That's what I thought and I'm not the least bit surprised.

Thanks for the confirmation.

Carry on.

So, Overwatch 2 is just a single player DLC? Except a full priced game? Because Overwatch 1 owners get everything else anyway?
