You do realise that there were things that hinted at her character since the beta's right? And the pose was replaced with one based off nineteen forties pinups.Ishigami said:I find this pretty interesting.
Not the character, the character is highly irrelevant.
I'm talking about the reactions and the company politics on display regarding Overwatch as a whole.
People here for example praise it. For what? For a highly inconsequential backstory.
Almost nothing what is written in the backstory will have any relevance whatsoever in the game because it's just another team based shooter without story. That she was a sniper will be the only thing of importance... duh.
But apparently that's praiseworthy.
You will kill her daughter in the enemy team no matter what.
Then there is Blizzard. The company that apologised and removed an animation because one person complained.
Apparently some people complained about the lack of old women or that females would not look their age or something [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/comicsandcosplay/comics/critical-miss/17114-Overwatch-character-roster-representation] and now an older looking women is added.
What is missing from the cast? I see no black person.
Someone should complain about that. The result could be telling.
Edit: Emma Honeywell, google it.
