Overwatch is my game of the year. I know it comes out today (if you’re reading this on May 23rd, 2016 ((if not, hello! What’s it like in the future? Talk about flying cars in the comment section!)), but I’ve spent enough time with the betas to declare Overwatch the best first person shooter I’ve played since Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. It’s innovative, it’s fun and it’s utter perfection. Blizzard did it again.
So how do you escalate from giant gorillas in armor with laser weapons? You put Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey and Conan O’Brien in charge of the cast of characters that make Overwatch so special. Yes, it’s Conan versus the Lannisters in an epic battle of capturing points and escorting payloads.
The big takeaway from this Clueless Gamer — Peter Dinklage can game. He’s clearly dominating Lena and Conan, even when Conan (from his Iron Throne) talks trash, Dinklage quietly mutters, “no you’re not” with the confidence that only someone with his undeniable skills can. Then he blows Conan away.
Ironically, and probably much to Blizzard’s chagrin, a good portion of this segment focused on the shiny butts on one of the characters. That’s exactly what Blizzard has been trying to get away from, Conan!
