If you can get to one of thje Cinema events, it looks like they'll be showing off two more shorts, with Genji vs Hanzo and Soldier 76 in Dorado.

I just wanted to check in and say that the Taco Bell promotion is legit. I was on the fence about buying the game at launch, and now I don't have to make that decision anymore!

You win a copy of the game and a headset. I don't really care about the headset. You don't even need to purchase anything, just plug in the free code once a day.

Wait, the codes are reusuable? My roommate won a copy as well so I was like eh, I'll try it and didn't win. I don't wanna do it TOO much since it costs money to do (standard fees may apply!) but I might try again once or twice. Is there a way to do it that doesn't involve texting?

see the thing is i'm reasonably impressed that they really did come up with a bunch of characters who are diverse but not whack stereotypes or just regular blizzard standbys (like...mccree and torbjorn)

and then this is like...mystical samurais and yakuza. i dunno, whatever

There are some dudes at Blizzard who go years never hearing the word 'No' and whose cultural engagement froze in time during the 1980s. You don't have to squint to pick out which stuff comes from their influence

That Bastion play at the end was pretty dope. Same with the Zarya/Genji team up.

I honestly can't follow the Genji perspective gameplay (maybe I shouldn't watch it on my phone).

It's cool, I'll just do Zarya's half.

follow-up thought on this: i looked up the voice actors and they did a pretty good job of not doing that thing where you have a bunch of non-white characters but all the va's are still white

of course then i also saw that reaper is keith ferguson (i hadn't heard his voice when i was playing the beta) so i will absolutely never be able to see him the same way again

The servers will have a simultaneous launch worldwide. For the US, it will actually launch Monday evening, 4pm PST and 7pm EST.

We'll see if they've learned anything from the World of Warcraft expansion launches. Those went from dogshit early on - I'm looking at you, Burning Crusade - to fairly smooth on launch weeks. Getting in to play is usually the biggest issue, not server stability.

Going pick up my copy at lunch on Monday and then waiting impatiently until 6:00PM CST.
