Overwatch: Butt Central

Despite my laptop’s best efforts to die, we are back!

This week marks two big events for the podcast: Firstly, we have a brand new guest! Our friend Sharon makes her debut appearance. Secondly, for the first time since our second-ever episode, we have two guests on the show simultaneously. Old stalwart Donovan returns, hot on the heels of his Christmas-movie-centric appearance.

All of this hullabaloo is focused on video game phenomena Overwatch. Blizzard’s current marquee title has taken the world of first-person shooters by storm, transcending the usual boundaries of the genre in a boundary-breaking way that hasn’t been seen in a long time.

With the debut of Overwatch League right around the corner, it seemed like the appropriate time to tackle the topic. From what each of us enjoys about the game, to why its popularity has remained so high years after its release, this is the episode for anyone who has encountered the brightly-coloured cast on Imgur and wants to know what the deal is.
