I like the screenshot where they fill in the **** with (dick), just in case you can't figure it out by context.

Soldier 76's visor doesn't just give him aimbot. It's also his gaydar. :fingerguns:

This is one of those things where it's absolutely never acknowledged in the game, right? It only exists in outside media, and can therefore be completely ignored if desired?

Geez, people are always eager to whine about something. :pac

Heh, yeah, it's usually just part of the supplemental comics and stuff, though sometimes there are in-game hints, like that photo of 76 and his boyfriend might be on a wall somewhere. But there are occasional PVE missions with a story focus (and there's a new one of these coming up for Ana and 76) so maybe it'll get a nod in-game eventually.

Folks with sharper eyes and better memories than mine spotted a hint at this in a comic from two years ago, so it's not even really a totally new lore nugget, just a new confirmation, I guess.

I'm here for S76 being gay. He doesn't need to be a biological father to be the Dad of OW (and even if he is it doesn't change anything). As someone more interested in the lore than the gameplay of OW this is cool.

Tracer has a line in King's Row where she wonders if she'll have time to visit Emily while in the area, but again, unless you read the comics you have no idea Emily is her girlfriend.

You know that Zenyatta is actually the only gay character in Overwatch, because when he shouts GAYS INTO THE IRIS all your other teammates run away.

You seem to like the team logo on Roadhog's belly, so him for sure. Since you prob want to rep them picking characters you play should be more highly rated, so S76, Mei, Pharah, Torbjorn would be my other picks for you. Also depends if you have skins you super like on your mains already. D.VAs one is too in character for me (doesn't really stand out so much), and Junkrat's shorts are a little too subtle.

Roadhog, S76, Mei, Pharah, Torbjorn.

since half of what I do here is just crosspost funny stuff from the SA overchill thread, some goon found this little gem
never go on reddit wrote: BF[28m] quitting a shared activity for raisins I [27f] don't understand

My boyfriend is a pretty big gamer. When I first met him I wasn't very into video games, but he introduced me to them, and it's become something we like to do together. In particular, we like to play Overwatch together and usually play some games of it every few days. So, it's a pretty big thing for us. The problem started today when he heard that Blizzard made a character, Soldier 76, gay in the game's story. It doesn't actually change anything about the gameplay, and I personally don't care at all.

For some raisin he's really mad about it. He keeps talking about how Blizzard "sold out," and saying that he can't support a company that "betrays their fans." He said he won't play the game anymore, which makes me pretty unhappy because it's something I really like to do with him. Am I being unreasonable? I know there are other games we could play, but Overwatch is the only one I'm any good at, so I don't really want to abandon my favorite game.

TLDR: Boyfriend is quitting Overwatch, which we play together, because a character is gay

It's like when you find out the person you're dating is a right-wing nutjob or a pushy religious type.

New map on the way

https://us.forums.blizzard.com/en/overw ... y-30-2019/
Paris , an elegant city of art and romance, is the home of our newest Assault map.

Begin your journey at the Cabaret Luna, where the velvety alto voice of preeminent diva Luna charms movie stars, revolutionaries, locals, and tourists alike. After the encore, step outside to see the sights and seize victory. Artisanal shops line the streets as you approach the first point, so duck in to sample a macaron or escape enemy fire. Battle through alleys and corridors before clashing with your foes on the banks of the Seine. Once you establish dominance over your adversaries, make your way to Maison Marat and deliver the coup-de-grâce.

Heh, I have the real world version of that cat poster at about 7:56 (I wonder if her song is really this long or if it started looping earlier and I didn't notice 'cause I don't speak French)
