Overwatch

Blizzard’s relatively new competitive shooter Overwatch is popular for a lot of reasons, with one of the biggest being that its overall cheery tone and general brightness are profoundly refreshing in a world where games like Call Of Duty seem to get grittier and edgier every year. A lot of that cheery tone comes from its colorful cast of characters, which includes a talking gorilla, a former professional gamer who now pilots a mech, a cyborg ninja, the cyborg ninja’s brother, a roller-skating DJ, and many more equally ridiculous men, women, and robots. Naturally, then, Brazzers decided to take some of these delightful characters and put them in a porn parody.

Titled Oversnatch (ugh), the film stars Aletta Ocean and Danny D as parody versions of Overwatch’s Widowmaker and Reaper, who are a spider-themed French sniper lady and a guy who’s basically a Hot Topic with legs (respectively). Seeing as how this thing is the porn version of a popular video game, Kotaku’s Nathan Grayson decided to give Oversnatch (ugh) the full-on Kotaku review treatment, critiquing it like he would an actual video game. The end result is probably a lot more fun than watching Oversnatch (ugh) would be, especially since one of Grayon’s biggest issues is the way the porn fails to properly replicate actual Overwatch strategies:

Reaper and Widowmaker proceed to engage in a firefight that makes minimal use of their skills. Widowmaker barely scopes at all, and Reaper fights from an awkward mid-range, instead of up-close. Reaper doesn’t use Wraith Form, in which he slips into a shadowy space between this world and the next, to close distance or anything. How unrealistic. Immersion broken.

In the end, Grayson appreciated the “couple of funny Overwatch references,” but ultimately walked away disappointed. Still, at least we get to appreciate his funny article about a dumb thing. You can read Grayson’s review at this link—just be aware that it is fairly NSFW.
