Oh Look...Miku-Miku Overwatch

Note though, that if you are not utterly appalled by the very existance of Overwatch, then you are probably a terrible terrible person for reasons that I don't quite get due to us terrible people not being self aware. However, some clue to the reason for our awfulness can possibly be gleaned from the following video that lays out the reason some are offended rather better than the people who say they are offended...which isn't saying much.

1 Part 2 is even better.

2 Is it OK that I don't have the slightest idea what it is?

3 The first video has a problem, not enough butt-shots of Tracer (Something that some SJWs found "Problematic" even though Widowmaker struck the same pose in the character preview screen).


Of course, they also complain about the female characters in skin tight outfits, but totally fail to notice that half of them are not (Armor and Parkas I guess negate femininity.)

The scenario and all the backstory makes for a great set of movies or something, but that all pretty much gets thrown away in the gameplay.

4 Steven, it's a new videogame from Blizzard, the folks that made World of Warcraft and all the various spinoffs.  It's the current "Next Big Thing."

Tracer's cute.

No Steven. It is not OK.  You have a responsibility to be offended by this and you can't be offended if you are unaware of the problem and ignorance is not only unacceptable as an excuse but actually demonstrates your callous insensitivity to the terrible injustices being perpetrated here. You should be ashamed that you are privilaged enough to be unaware of the problem. 
Alternatively, while the game itself looks to be decent, the backstory characterizations and writing in the cinematic trailers at the link are quite compelling, and the character designs are...well...

(Note that out of consideration  for our readers we did not use Roadhog as our example...because we care)

6 @ Mauser.... We studied this issue rather intensely here

7 I haven't played a pure FPS since Quake3Arena,  but Overwatch has got me interested.

8 Before that, I saw someone mock the original complaint about Tracer's buttshot by substituting Winston. It was hilarious. And that was before I knew what it was about!

Although I must admit I find the purple-skinned assassin/sniper a little more intriguing. Plus she has a nice butt too.
