First real black character straight out of jail, blizzard knows what's up.
Nonetheless phenomenal character design that is really fitting in both being doom fist and his origin.
Looks a lot fun to play.

I'm sure you didn't mean that to sound racist in any way, right?

I was playing him on the PTR earlier and he's a blast to play. Can't wait to play him on Xbox.

By no means. I'm a huge fan of his whole design, that took Inspiration from dambe fighters. That was just a joke because People are already raging on the Internet that he is in jail as a black man, if at all, People are calling Blizzard racist for that. Dosen't matter he Looks badass and I'm sure he'll be nerfed to the ground two weeks after release to put him in line with the other unplayable characters.

He's been on the PTR for just a few hours and I can already tell he has the most game breaking ultimate so far.
So Doomfist was real after all...huh.

Doesn't matter to me tbh. I feel like his Voice Actor is menacing enough. If Terry Crews voiced him I couldn't play Doomfist without thinking of those Old Spice commercials.


Aaaaaaaabdominals.

The only Overwatch news I will care about from here out is the news that they will be reversing the destructive nerf to Roadhog. He wasn't even overpowered, but now he's just an ult charge for the enemy team. I'll never understand why they took a capable, role based character and nerfed him into the dirt.

The Roadhog nerf was way too severe. I'm not sure why they felt they need to do that.

Agreed. While being oneshot because of a bullshit hook is not fun, he was the last standing counter against dive compostions.

I hate to but in, but he wasn't the last standing counter against dive compositions. Granted he's not the best, but McCree is sort of a counter, not a hard one like Roadhog, then there's Sombra, who literally can shut down the abilities of the diver (plus has great close range damage), plus Roadhog is still a counter for those compositions, much better than McCree is, but not quite as pre-nerf Roadhog. His weapon is automatic and he fires much faster now, he can still take down a Tracer, he may not be as deadly as he used to be, but he's still formidable.

Ready for the customary two-achievement list for a new character.

1st achievement: Gain X amount of shields from using punching abilities

2nd achievement: Stun 4/5/6 enemies with the use of Meteor Strike

I should have linked to the White Chicks scene but his performance on Lip Sync Battle was just incredible.
