An Overwatch Movie?

Can’t be worse than some of the other drek coming out of Hollywood. They have been talking about an Overwatch film for a while. And one of the Overwatch characters showed up in the latest trailer for Ready Player One. Though the record of good films being made out of games is pretty poor, especially when Hollywood (and suits who never played a game) are involved.

As for the one movie I actually own that is based on a game, it wasn’t produced in America. Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children. And most Americans don’t get it, since it is a Japanese story told by Japanese artists.

(OK, so it isn’t exactly Anime. I don’t have a category for computer games being made into films.)

It may finally be time to build that new PC.

Overwatch – Ana’s Origin Story. The healing power reminds me of the D&D-like games that include healing mages. Except online. Probably won’t work out that way in practice.

After the break, there is some of her action in the game. She heals, and enhances allies, and can put enemies to sleep.
