Crack shipping- Let's face it, not many people actually want to see Roadhog have sex with Junkrat. But it would be kinda funny.
Ohhh, so you're talking about fan stuff. I thought Blizz officially made them a couple.

Junkrat and Road Hog should be gay. Junk rat has a bear fetish.

Are you being intolerant to other people's love?

The panel confirmed that more than one of the overwatch heroes is a homosexual. The only heroes that really have a deep connection to eachother are junkrat and roadhog, and so my money's on them being a gay couple.

Also, the word "Grudgingly" is used to describe the deal from Roadhog's end, so it's probably not going to happen.

Inb4 the usual suspects complain about Blizzard "forcing" this on their players due to "SJW pressure".

Already here. But reddit is reddit.

"Gays? Ewww. Blizzard is so pathetic. Hate gays. Won't buy this gay game! Where are my equal rights? Why can't a straight man live in peace without all this gay propoganda everywhere. Put them in jails or something."

It's not complaining, it's stating a fact. Just because you're a Libshit doesn't make it any less true.

As a gay man myself. I'm more annoyed that they announced this thus treating them as something special. I'm just someone who wants to be treated as a normal human rather than a trophy to be displayed.

Also unless this has a compelling story campaign, a character's sexuality (gay or straight) doesn't matter in a multiplayer game about killing each other.
This guy gets it.

Et voil

@ the quote you added:

It is a point to be made though, because his sexuality was purposefully not represented in media such as this previously, regardless of the context. Does the sexuality of the characters matter at all? No. So why care at all, then. It's just a nice gesture in a genre that typically consists of teenagers shouting gay and racials slurs at each other over kills.

Plus it's not just a game about killing each other - they'Re making a point of building an elaborate backstory with comics and everything, and in that respect it would be pretty awkward to have 21 characters, all straight. Not very realistic

And this won't change, if anything it will just make it worse.

You actually believe this? Despite everything pointing to the opposite? I don't even. A few shitty WoD-style comics doesn't equal a well developed or interesting backstory/setting.

They had an entire panel about their plans for a "cinematic universe" and giving the characters substance.

Are you dismissing it because it doesn't fit the narrative of evil SJWs forcing companies to insert realistic representation of sexual orientations?

They still have female characters in skintight suits.

I fail to see the interest in this game when it's just a copy of TF2 with generic Blizzard style characters, and a story you might as well read on the back of a cereal box.

Because Blizzard have never overhyped themselves at Blizzcon, then utterly failed to deliver. Oh wait.

And sorry but I just, maybe it's me, figure a VIDEO GAME should, you know, tell the story in the fucking GAME. Could it just be that, as we all know, they're trying to backtrack and make a story out of a Game that, clearly, they've designed without giving a second thought to story in the first place?

I'm dismissing it [this idea of a real story/setting other than "MUH DIVERSITY! SO PROGRESSIVE!"] because there's fuck all to suggest there will be anything of the sort.

Also, Smoke is right, there's still Bikini-clad/Huge tits "SEXIST" Female characters, so no doubt the SJW cunts will still find reasons to whine.

Well that's because your entire assumption is that they only add these little details (seriously details, as they only mentioned it on the side in response to a question, they didn'T give a main stage presentation with rainbow banners and Big Gay Al) due to peer pressure. And that assumption is of course nonsense.

Fact is acceptance of different sexual orientations has changed dramatically over the past few generations, and content creators like to draw upon material that reflects the zeitgeist of their time. That involves this aspect of it too.

As for their intentions with story - idc either way. The fact of the matter is though that they are producing content for the characters besides the base competitive game, regardless of what you may think of that.

I didn't mean that. I meant that Blizz handled the progressive crap better than before. They didn't turn existing characters into gay tokens, and neither removed sexual appeal like other companies did. As long as Sylvanas isn't thrown in a burka, or Illidan goes ''Nice raptor there sweetybum!'', I'm good.
