Another thing I seemed to miss during my week off was of course Gamescon, meaning I didn’t get to report on many of the new things shown off at the show.
Overwatch definitely had a lot to talk about during the event (I’ll talk about the other thing tomorrow) but for now I’ll mention the fact that we got a new animated short. This one focuses on Mei, the ice queen of the Overwatch world. Her origin story in particular is what’s touched upon in this short which sees her waking up from cryo sleep on an Antartic expedition base.
The short was entertaining for what it was, however personally I found the emotional scenes to not have too much of a punch, perhaps it was the voice acting which just sounded ever so slightly off (and yes I know she doesn’t natively speak english). Still at least we know what happened to her, poor Mei.
That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
