It’s been a long while since we all had a good rant. This week, JF delivers. He and Amy discuss three articles that were in the media this week, one of which sets JF off. Also, enjoy the worst outro in history.
It’s the long awaited map episode! In this week’s giant sized episode, JF tries out his radio voice, another article appears on Redbull.com, and Amy and JF explore the ups and downs of all eight maps.
JF and Amy discuss the missing aspect of Overwatch that neither of them were missing: Progression. In another Developer Update from Blizzard, Jeff Kaplan talks about what has been tried and failed thus far and the Overcast team discusses their thoughts on what will be implemented in the future. They also make a bit of a wish list for cosmetic options for the game.
Bonus drinking game: Every time Amy says the word “iteration”, take a drink.
Amy and JF cope with the beginnings of their Overwatch withdrawal by diving into an article focused on how the story of Overwatch is being built. They also formulate some pretty sweet game modes (You’re welcome, Blizzard.)
Pay no attention to the fact that JF recorded the entire episode on his room mic…. Amy and JF face the cold facts of the beta going on hiatus and do some mining in the depths of the beta feedback forums.
Amy and JF reminisce about why stress test beta weekend was so awesome and delve into some of the finer details of balancing characters in such a complex game.
In this extra long episode, JF and Amy cover the three new characters and have many opinions about Blizzard’s difficulty rating system.
It’s the BlizzCon Overview Episode! Amy and JF cover the vast array of Overwatch news released at this year’s BlizzCon… and they geek out over all of it.
This is not the BlizzCon Episode… There is, however, lots of speculation about Blizzcon announcements, JF and Amy finally get to play the beta together, and they formulate a it of a wishlist for game features.
Beta, beta, beta, beta, beta!
That’s right, it’s beta talk in this week’s episode. Find out Amy’s first impressions of the game and why JF hasn’t gotten to play yet.
