Watchpoint Radio #34: The Platinum Promised Land
Season 3 kicks off. Complaining ensues. What's going on?...
Mezza and Crashtag from Double Tap join Mikey on this week’s episode of Watchpoint Radio. It’s light week on news, but we still have a little bit of what’s going on in the community. We talk about the possibility of 3v3 competitive, and what Jeff Kaplan posted on the forums regarding some unique design decisions about the about the 3v3 game mode. We also dive into the data that got released involving some Sombra voice lines and what that could mean for getting more info on our heroes back story through the voice lines. What could the mysterious Arena voice line from Athena could be? We, also discuss if the Overwatch holiday theme is legit and if that means that the holiday event is right around the corner.
As always we listen to our viewers and read a viewer question. This time the question revolves around a getting bigger stars to voice act for the game. Would it be a good thing to get big Hollywood names involved? We also ring in the new season 3 and what that could mean for people. Will the matchmaking hold up or will this be another season 2 debacle? Only time will tell. All that and more on this episode of Watchpoint Radio!
Mikey has been playing fighting games since he could reach the arcade stick and buttons. While not be ever being tournament ready he strives to do better. Loves pure action games and enjoying bonkers jrpgs. He's just you're average gaymer.
Got his start gaming with his two cousins and brother at his aunts house. They had to always play in secret, but he fell in love with fighting games when he got his first taste of an arcade in Maryland. Now looks to grow the community.
Video gaming runs in his blood and competition plagues his mind. From the earliest days in the now extinct arcades, to the eSports competitive scene, he looks forward to the next game to test his skills. No stranger to rising salt levels.
