Hopefully not a lot of dust and atmosphere blocking off portions of the game to be released as DLC..

I don't think it looks that bad.
They shouldn't have branded it as MSG; with such a niche set of fans you're not going to capitalise on the success of previous games by changing the genre, but change the name and its not bad.. My only question is what the point of the game is? I imagine it will be a bit like vermintide, good co-op fun for 3-4 maps and then it fizzles out.Reply

My thoughts exactly. Watched the vid and thought that doesn't look too bad at all. Two disclaimers though: I haven't played any other metal gear except MGS5 and I like co-op survival games.

What I find startling about this is that... I don't know if I can even type this because I'm a bit shellshocked. This Chinese rip-off of Overwatch has a less exploitative view of women than Overwatch itself does. A Chinese game is less aimed at the otaku mindset than a Western one.

Okay, so... first things first.

When the frig did I land in Bizarro World? Was I taken in my sleep or something? I don't see everyone starting their posts with 'me am' so I can only assume that there's been a push for better speaking and self expression here of late.

I mean, usually it's an established thing that women in Asian games will be... um... questionable, to say the least. Sometimes right up to exploitative. TERA's boob physics come to mind. That's just their culture, though, so I expect that. I mean, it's great that they're a little bit better today, with this, but it means they're no longer predictable, nor is the West.

And I just feel turned on my head.

The best example is the woman at the back left of the line-up. And yes, that's a woman. That's what a woman body-builder looks like. Zarya fucking isn't. Zarya has a baby face, giant breasts, an hourglass (if chubs) figure, and baggy pants to make her legs look bigger than they are. And her armour's colour layout is even meant to imply an hourglass figure, just look at it. It's been talked about on Tumblr a lot. Zarya is a skeevy, manipulative attempt to sort of offer a muscular woman (who isn't really) whilst at the same time giving her the body type that the Overwatch otaku fans drool after as desirable 'waifu' traits. Similar to how Mei's coat hides her hourglass but voluptuous figure, shown in the concept art and many extrapolative art pieces fans have done. So basically offering a fat character, but not really.

Blizzard even gave their Samus rip-off (which very much is a Samus rip-off) a battle thong. Excuse the language, but allow me to stress this. They gave her a fucking battle fucking thong.

Battle. Thong.

That's why Overwatch is so skeevy to me. It's women to drool over. I can't play it for that reason. I have respect for a gender that's experienced too much of this shit already. It's why I play Battleborn instead. Battleborn, a game that had a woman who was so much a flat-chested tomboy that Overwatch players were convinced she was a man.

I'm talking about Shayne, of course.

So, yeah. I don't know what to think any more. ¯\(°~o)/¯

Edit: Here's an image detailing what I mean about Zarya.

Un-body-builder-like big boobs? Check!
A colour layout designed to imply an hourglass figure? Check!
Blocky, baggy pants to make her legs look bigger than they are? Check!
A soft baby face which body-builders really don't have? Check!

It's just so skeevy. The Chinese one is better! The Chinese one is an accurate portrayal of women body-builders. Just Google image search for 'woman body builder' if you don't believe me.

I can't tell if this is a joke or not. If not.. kinda pathetic

In addition.. If you subscribe to the free trial you cannot cancel until 2 days before the renewal date. So if you're out for the weekend or what have you, they charge you.. albeit a small amount.

This is the most painful procedure of cancelling on any site I know.Reply

If the payment method is through paypal, you should be able to cancel the subscription at any time. I have used a couple businesses which don't bother with a cancel function. But thankfully Paypal does it.

I would recommend watching LoLEventVods on Youtube - These are all the Tournament games wrapped up nicely for your viewing pleasure. These have the advantage of telling you strategies the players might take in and what they might be planning - however these are quite fast paced and don't often mention ability names and without knowing the game well its hard to watch and fully understand whats going on.


As Esivo - Twitch is a great place to go. I'd recommend Scarra for midlane (his old stuff on Twitch anyway) as he used to do a lot of commentaries while playing, so explained what he was going to do it and why. Oddone for Jungle can be quite amusing but also does occasional commentaries. I dont know many other commentators while they play - perhaps someone else will comment as I dont watch much more, but theres a start. Just look up some popular players and type it in to google for their YT channel or Twitch stream.
