Winter Wonderland is here and we're rating our favorite skins, talk about the new Yeti Hunter Event, and discuss role choices. Is it better to pick what your team needs or what you're good at playing?

Hopefully they're the same thing?

Dec 6, 2017

It's our 50th episode and we announce the winner of our giveaway. We also announce the new intro and outro as well as a couple other goodies. And we talk about why Doomfist sucks.

If that seems like clickbait, you're right.

Christi and Sarah are back! Listen for details on how to win prizes for our 50th episode, opinions on Moira, and Winter Wonderland predictions like what costumes we think we'll see, pricing, and special maps or events.

Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat!

Nov 21, 2017

Stay for the exciting 50th episode contest announcement toward the end!

JB flying solo this week because Sarah has holiday prep to take care of and Christi's voice is shot. He reviews the interesting information from the the Overwatch Archive panel from Blizzcon 2017, great insights from the Overwatch Concept Art book, and why he is sick and tired of character "shipping".

Nov 7, 2017

Oh, Blizzard! How we love thee! This week we're talking all about what we got right and what we were off on in our BlizzCon predictions; and about what Blizzard and games mean to us.

Christi also enlightens us on the connection between Lucio and the frogs! Here's the article she cites: https://twero.tumblr.com/post/167029478311/lúcio-and-the-muiraquitã

Is Mercy a must-have following the changes? We feel like that's true. And what are these rumors of changes to Genji and Junkrat on the PTR? We once again discuss the downside of making rapid changes. We also dig into the Halloween event, what Mei's skin is all about (jiangshi from Chinese mythology), and Mercy concept art!

The Meat

  • Tip of the Week: don't be a jerk! The developers of our fave game shouldn't be afraid to talk to/with the people who play their games. Terrorizing anyone is NOT OK.

Lots of good news for 2017's Summer Games:

  1. Lucioball changes including competitive mode.
  2. Buying old skins for discount prices.
  3. Lots of new skins.

Doomfist opinions:

  1. Too squishy
  2. Interesting game play
  3. Available in comp on 8/3
  4. Part of original story

Spawn changes for defenders.

New, unannounced Blizzard project.

Playing multiple heroes keeps the game more interesting than specializing in just one.

  • Dave’s glass ceiling - “I’ve kind of finished the game.”

What a year it's been! We can hardly believe it's been a full year of Overwatch. It feels both longer and shorter than a year in various ways. In this show we talk all about the achievement Blizzard and the Overwatch team have...achieved. We also discuss loot boxes (our favorite topic), RNG, new skins & dances, Jeff Kaplan's statement about competitive play, and how Dave has never been more wrong.

May 13, 2017

Special guest Captain Energon joins the guys this week to talk all things Overwatch! They discuss upcoming changes, lootboxes, cool community stuff, a possible Overwatch Anniversary Event, and the excellent banter between Wendy's and Overwatch twitter accounts.

Apr 28, 2017

In this week's show we learn how much Brandon will pay for foreskins...er we mean FOUR skins. The guys vent their spleens about the current lootbox and event price system, gush over HotS 2.0, discuss new maps and assault map changes, and talk quite a lot about competitive mode.

Apr 17, 2017

The latest event is incredible! And not necessarily focused on a particular season. JB and Brandon sing their praises and also talk about how much they'd be willing to pay for skins they want instead of loot boxes. Especially the fan-created Betrayer skin for Reaper.

Mar 31, 2017

We're all mixed up! All this stuff from Overwatch is making its way to Heroes of the Storm! First it was voting and now it's lootboxes! We talk about this, JB's separation anxiety, how we like Orisa now, and how Dave and Brandon hate skins.
