Happy Thursday heroes, we have some Overwatch news. They’ve been teasing a new hero to join the ranks and today we have the reveal. It is a character who goes by the name Wrecking Ball and they’re a Hamster. I know some fans were upset that Overwatch hasn’t done a female black woman character and they’re valid in how they feel. This game that’s been celebrated for it’s diversity and inclusion is still missing a group that needs to be represented. Fans thought Efi Oladele was going to be a playable character but instead we just got Orisa instead. Before “But Ben, Orisa is black” and she’s not. She’s an actual robot who is coded to be an African woman but she’s a robot. People want an actual black woman and I don’t think it’s such a reach to ask for such representation since everyone else is being represented.
Alright, I’m off my soapbox and I like Hammond. Fingers crossed we get either a black woman or Junker-queen as the next hero to add to this ongoing lore. As always let us know what you think. I’m XBen3000 and I’m out!
