Watchpoint Radio #44: Roadhog 2.1, the Tragedy That is Bastion, and Fake News.
Talking the latest Roadhog and Bastion build on the PTR, as well as unsubstantiated Doomfist rumors....
Those Bastion changes we were talking about last week? We finally get a chance to check them out on the PTR. Is Bastion a changed machine? Is he more of a Tank buster now? We’d love to tell you, but unfortunately the PTR went down before we could check him out. We do go over all of the official changes (at least on the PTR), and give our thoughts on them. He wasn’t the only one that changes, however. Mercy got a nice little buff that makes her invincible while resurrecting. There is a nice little debate about how much that is going to affect the game.
The biggest news from the PTR is the addition of the server browser. Players can now create highly customized games and label them public to show up on the server list. Jarret things brings us one step closer to modding tools, while Mikey disagrees (of course). We also discuss Terry Crews doing a read as Doom fist, the recent ban hammer, keyboard & mouse on console, the current competitive bell curve, and more.
Jarret is Executive Director as well as one of the founding members of Mash Those Buttons. He plays all types of games, but tends to lean more toward FPS, Stealth, and Combat games.
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.
Jason has been a gamer since the days of the Atari, starting off with games like Pong, and leading all the way up to games like Final Fantasy on the PS2. He then discovered the battlefield series in 2004 on the PC and it was done. An avid gamer, lover of music and all things PC, Jason strives to show users that PC gaming is not dead, so lock an load!
Melty Blood gameplay, Granblue has a patch, SFV new skins, Nick All Stars Brawl is legit and a cake for going 0-2.
So much news to cover this week with the playoffs a week away! Let's dive in to this week's news and a playoff preview.
This week Melderon joins BlazzinBob and Melarina to talk about TBC Classic.
We finally get to starting Mass Effect 2 which starts with the death of Commander Shepard. WHAT???
