New Mei Short is Out!
 

Mei confirmed most adorable Overwatch hero?

It's really animated well, so I can forgive the long wait time. All I could think about while watching was how great an Overwatch movie would be.

Mei is endearing! I don't particularly like playing her or her Crystal Maiden-esque abilities, but she has a wholesome personality.

So sure, that's what "Mei" told everyone happened. But we all know that she's actually the Thing, right?

The joke was right there in the short with the first cyrochamber showing the last name "MacReady"

Yeah, between this and the Hearthstone animation I just... they need to expand the team and do a Netflix series or a movie or something.



On the short:

It was good, not quite as strong as a few of the others but I think that's because they didn't let Mei emote quite as much as appropriate (all your friends being dead should result in Gross Crying) and it felt a little odd for her to not notice the others weren't around right away (no dust pileup? etc...) and to build the cryo-gun from scratch in the span of a few hours/days at most.

At the same time it was sweet, had a nice hopeful tone, and it gave Mei and Snowball a bit more depth and personality and tied them nicely into Winston's worldwide broadcast to help bring them into the main storyline as well.

It tugged at the heartstrings in a way that felt less cheap than most.
