New hero coming to Overwatch

with 5 comments

Tomorrow is a big day. A new hero will be introduced to Overwatch, Orisa, who is a black African female robot, thus adding more diversity to the game and totally destroying the archaic notion that heroes are white male humans.

Orisa will be the third robot hero. We already have the non-talkative nature-loving Bastion, and the Buddhist robot Zenyatta who wanders the world, helping those he meets to overcome their personal struggles and find inner peace.

Zenyatta is the only overtly religious hero. Will Blizzard ever introduce a Christian hero? Don’t count on it.

  1. There are more Norse gods in video games than Mediterranean gods, pagan or Abrahamic. I wonder how vikings would feel if their religion of all religions would be remembered the most, and yet in the worst way by the geekiest people.

    Invented gods in games are so mundane they are meaningless, not even profane. They seem to exist to show that religion cannot be invented. Racial characteristics are just as inimitable.

    • I’m not sure that’s true. The Greek/Roman pantheon shows up everywhere. I do think that people are more comfortable using Norse mythology in non-religious contexts. Probably because the ‘Norse’ peoples are still more or less extant, so it feels more like ‘folklore’ than ‘religion.’

  2. League of Legends veered from shameless porn for 14 year old boys and heavily armored bodybuilder action heroes to all-out PC. My friends refer to Illaoi, a “female” with herculean muscle tone released in the last year as “the tranny champ.” Kinkily, she attacks by spawning tentacles everywhere. They also released a burrowing alien from an alternate dimension they insisted was a “she.” Yet another recent release, Ekko, resembles a Dravidian teenager wielding a cricket bat as a weapon.
    They already had a very gay beefcake champ, Taric, but it was lampshaded so everyone just chuckled fondly at his truly outrageous gems.

  3. Like 70% of the overwatch characters are black, and the rest are homosexual robots, it’s the video game version of cuckold porn.

    I really regret buying it.

    • Lucio is the only black character. There are a lot of Asian and Middle Eastern characters, and a Mexican female hacker.
