>>725033743 Robot arm, basically a never get tired hand job dispenser. If she is at the functioning end of the spectrum, you'd almost not notice it, she might just be a bit more literal in her way of thinking or speaking.
>Symmetra walking home >Sees burning apartment building >People screaming for help as smoke billows out all windows >Symmetra can't read the situation > "...Y-Yes hello." >Turns and walks away, slightly faster like Michael Cera in Superbad
>>725035743 A burning building isn't a social interaction though. It's a bad situation you can apply logic to. So if you had skills that could help in that situation, the logic thing would be to help somehow.
>>725032047 Her only problem is her main weapon having massive reach and being able to kill anyone on a onevone situation that isn't mei, or reaper.
>>725034603 This. Since the announcement of WE WUZ INVINTERS AND SHIT character I'm getting tired of their SJW agenda. At least even before Tracer was announced to be a lesbian I got those vibes from here anyway.
>>725035271 her turrets have crap health, she only has 200 herself, and he can just shield himself from her beams while he fries her. even if she gets the jump on him, he can literally jump away from her beam before it gets warmed up.
>>725038319 I dunno, I used to think Samus was a badass, she didn't become less of a badass when I found out she was a chick. But then she was embodying characteristics I wanted in myself, not characteristics I actually had.
why do people say this, she is a close quarters fighter. if she engages you, then yeah you have a long way to go to get away, but if you keep your distance from her, she can't do anything. People act like her gun is like widowmaker's or some shit
>>725038523 I couldn't give two shits about the race or ethnicity or gender of any characters either, but yeah it's probably because there are already so many white male superheroes out there and have been for like 70 years.
It probably is pretty lonely having very little or no representation in pop culture media. Never been in that position before.
>>725038775 There are plenty of female heroes out there as well and they evened out in numbers with the male ones around the 70's. By the early 90's some hero teams were majority women, like for x-men for example. Just because someone has an ideology and claims they are not represented, doesn't actually mean that that is so. If the people complaining about this were actually into the things they were criticizing, they would know that things are pretty even in comics, games, DnD and other such under fire hobbies.
>>725038319 >People want characters with the same characteristics they have I've never understood how this logic came into being.
It's like when feminists say women want to be independent and to live without men.
Why? What research lead to this conclusion? People never say.
When I play as a character, I just want to play as a badass who wrecks shit left and right. Because that's fun gameplay. Doesn't matter if it's a nigger or a chick or whatever else you might think of. That's completely secondary.
>>725039240 I agree there have been plenty of women around in comics and stuff for a long time, but like almost none of them acted like anything better than a cardboard cutout until fairly recently. X-men did a really great job making everyone seem like people with their own thoughts and feelings, but characters like wonder woman just felt like filler until the early 2000s.
>>725039347 Sounds like more people in the middle east needs to make video games then. People make games the games that they want, with characters they find cool. Expecting them to cater to what other people find cool is stifling their creativity.
>>725039344 >what I want should be the same as what everyone wants
It's not a new concept that people like fictional characters with similar traits as them. It allows people to see part of them self within the character and care more about the character. This is why comic book superheroes arent very diverse. They're designed to allow your common autist to see something of them self within the heroes personality, and therefore connect with the character more closely.
>>725039640 people make the games* >>725039610 That's more of a difference in good writing and bad writing in my opinion. Depending on the writer, superman is either a boring superjesus or an interesting man with extraordinary powers.
>>725039344 i think people really want an immersive experience, and being able to relate to your character through other means than just the story the game tells you means alot for people. Especially those who feel like they are misrepresented or underrepresented in most other forms of media.
>>725039640 that also may be true, but this game was built to cater to many nationalities and creeds. i mean the summer games, and the Chinese New Year were events in the game
>>725039526 she also has less health, and no movement abilities
>>725039524 No yeah I agree they are. The last 10 years have been pretty good at producing female characters in stuff who are appealing as characters. I kinda meant before that.
Like I said, it doesn't matter to me what the diversity is. I just like a cool character. The alternative is just more 6-foot-something dudes with different abilities so why not roll the random generator to make it more visually interesting?
>>725039859 Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against this game catering to many nationalities and creeds, if that is what the game makers want, cool. I'm just saying that it shouldn't be something people are forced to do when making a game. Duke Nukem wouldn't be the game it was if the main character wasn't a ultra macho womanizer, who solves everything with weapons. His character is funny because he wouldn't fit into the real world.
>>725040150 I don't think anyone forced blizz to make Liberalwatch. Me thinks they made it so "diverse" because they recognized it to be the raising trend and knew they'd be able to milk the cow the same way the milk any cows they can
>>725039753 It's not a new concept because people keep bringing it up like a mantra.
What made creators realize this in the first place? A study?
At this point people just praise diverse games and other media just for being diverse. Nobody ever says "Hey, I can relate to this character! He's just like me!" People just say "Hey, now there's someone who resembles X group! How nice."
>>725040286 lol jesus christ step back and imagine how boring the game would be without a difference in the characters. You're complaining because a character in something is slightly off from the norm and that makes it a liberal thing?
>>725040213 But that demographic was "people who are into comics and who care about writing and art" or at least it should have been, because those are the people who consistently buys comics. If they are pandering to some other group with sexy titties lol, fans would recognize it and criticize it. >>725040286 Well there we agree, as long as they keep up on their quality gameplay, it isn't a big issue for me though. >>725040415 I didn't think you were, I was just bringing up a point of why it can be good to be wary about it.
>>725040526 No lmao are you actually retarded? I'm just saying that blizz made the characters so wildly different because they knew diversity was the big thing and that alot of people would buy into it because of that.
And you're saying the game would be boring without a diverse roster? Because Counter Strike and Call of Duty clearly invalidate that argument.
>>725040809 >they have females and different nationalities
Yeah and how many players do you think give a fuck? I'm gonna guess it's none. COD was massively popular before they had a few women voice overs.
The reason overwatch was as popular as it was from the get go was because they rode the diversity wagon as hard as they could.
The gameplay wasn't revolutionary to any degree, the concepts were ancient. But right from day 1 they drew all the attention towards "look guys! W-we have all tbe different races, a-and body types, a-and nationalities, a-aren't we so hip?"
>>725041204 >smoke ring That doesn't make sense though, because this isn't even an argument. I've stated my point, that overwatch is mainly popular because they pushed the shit out of the diversity angle, and you really haven't disproved or counted that at all.
>>725041306 >if i stick my fingers in my ears and yell loud enough my argument will be less shit
the whole gamur girl trend completely shits all over your argument. there are more women playing videogames now than ever. its cool and hip to be a nerd now. sure you still have prudes who won't look your direction if you play games, but more often than not now they do. Activision saw that, and jumped on it.
>>725041434 Blizzard almost always have good gameplay, it has been their biggest selling point for years and the reason why their games take so long to come out. Adding the diversity would only marginally widen their player base.
>>725041563 NO. Everyone only bought it because people in the game were different from other people in the game. That's how things work now. Whenever the artstyle has a lot of different things, it's because of an agenda. I'm sick of people not fearing people that are different. You're making me think things I don't want to think about. FUCK.
>>725041741 she lacks a movement ablility, so if you're playing someone who does and still can't get away, its your fault. having said that, if you can't kill her before she closes on you, you fucked up. now there's the times where she can flank, but that really isn't exclusive to her at all.
I said it was polished, not new. Blizzard isn't good at having new ideas, they're good at making the gameplay feel fun.
> Had to be something else then, right?
Yes... The emphasize on the fact that it's a team-based FPS, not just a normal fps. That, along with having far more different playstyles available than a standard FPS, means the only real competition they have is TF2, which is what, a decade old by now?
>>725041700 lol that's what you got from this? Just because people are calling you out for regurgitating your grandparents outlook on life doesn't mean we're defending the company you're having a tantrum over.
that's like complaining that tracer flanks, or reinhart blocks things. she holds chokes, gives your team a safe spot to reload and her ults either keep you alive for longer, or gets you back to the fight quickly
>>725042457 well her gun builds up damage, and if you have less than 400 health and crap aim, you're gonna have a bad time. tele is a better mercy ult, because when placed well its much better than a mercy rez because she doesn't bring you back into the line of fire. on attack, she serves the purpose of a quasi genji. she melts healers and DPS but has trouble if she has to deal with more than one person at a time.
for the most part she's balanced by 200 health, short engage distance, and no movement abilities. also they capped her tele to a limit of 7
>>725037144 Sym is far from least liked, she was food before the projected shield and shield generator and she is moving up the tier list now. Torb, sombra and bastion get way more hate. Plus all the assholes that love to pick tracer, genji, mei and any sniper that doesn't know how to use said hero is the ultimate shitstain. A bad mei will break a team.
Implying I'm not using her for the delicious rage she allows me to harvest when some Genji faggot or McREEEEEEEEE gets shrivelled up like a little manlet and can't take it.
Nothing more satisfying than a play of the game because retards run into you one by one and get taken out by max charge, underscored by a chat full of neckbeards crying into their waifu pillows and calling me a tryhard.
>havent played since January >resided around 3500-3600 >see new heroes >see cancer buffs to symetra >see tjorborn buffs >nightmares on the first point of attacking eichenwalde I think Ill just play my csgo for now...
