As conductor of NETv’s hype train, I would like to address something that will now bother me till more news of my new obsession, Blizzard’s Overwatch, surfaces.
I would like to call your attention to Exhibit this big cast picture of Blizzard’s new IP:
Look at all those characters you just met after reading my last post.
Wait a minute…
Who are these three?
It would seem our pals at Blizzard would like to take a moment for you to kiss their asses. They are dangling three unknown and awesome looking characters right in front of our faces and not even mentioning them anywhere on the damn site!
The sword toting ninja guy has what seems to be special footwear, which makes him possibly able to climb walls and avoid detection (from even the gameplay footage).
Giant Pig looking dude probably uses poisons or his own odor to reek havok (see what I did there?) on the battlefield, protected of course by his own mask.
Then there’s cybernetic cowboy, the combatant hailing from the good old ‘Murica, complete with “I don’t give a fuck” akimbo stance, cigar, and empty pistol holster, probably because he’s already drawn it with the other hand, shot you 4 times, and lit the cigar with the heat from the gun barrel.
Needless to say, this game has tickled my fancy, and everything I have said will come true in the next year. Until I am proven otherwise, take all this as not speculation, but ironclad truth.
