Overwatch meets Marvel vs Capcom in amazing fighting game mashup

We’ve seen plenty of fighting game-style Workshop modes created in the past, but one of the newest ones might be the cleanest yet, taking its inspiration from the legendary Marvel vs. Capcom series.

We’ve seen in the past FGC-type modes in Overwatch that have been inspired by games like Soul Calibur and Smash Bros., but the latest might be one of the best so far.

Marvel vs. Capcom may not be as legendary as other series such as Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat, but the arcade classic is still popular to this day for its wild assists and ultimate abilities (plus, it’s the best fighting game that lets you play as an X-Men, hands down).

Now, Workshop expert qtpiheart has created a brand new mode called “Overwatch Fight Club” that lets players take control of heroes from Talon to battle it out.

Like Marvel vs. Capcom, as you battle it out with Doom, you can call in assists from the other members of Talon. For example, Reaper can make space with his shotguns, while Widowmaker fires out a single, high damage shot that can change the course of a match.

There are also four different stages you can battle it out on – Chateau Guillard, Oasis Gardens, Nepal Village, and Ilios Well – and they are all available for glorious 2D fighting action.

Right now it seems to be a Talon-only affair, but it doesn’t take much to see how this mode could work for the rest of Overwatch’s roster of heroes. If you want to try out qtpiheart’s Fight Club mode for yourself, the code is: BWJ7Z.

Don’t worry, you can call Sigma in to help out too.

Lately we’ve been seeing some absolutely wild stuff coming out of the Overwatch Workshop, like a recreation of the Wall from Game of Thrones (no word on a Season 8 remake yet, though) and a tool that lets players add their own platforms and walls, essentially letting them directly edit maps themselves.

The stuff coming out of the Workshop these days is leaps and bounds ahead of where we were when it first debuted in 2019, and changed the face of Custom games and wasting time in OW as we know it.


Overwatch update gives Winston Sombra and D.Va new Karaoke voice lines

Overwatch’s last patch on November 19 has finally given Sombra, Winston, and D.Va new Easter Egg karaoke voice lines on the Busan map.

The ability for certain heroes to sing on Busan isn’t exactly a secret, but it is a fun little Easter Egg hidden away. Devs have apparently been hard at work adding heroes to this exclusive club recently as well.

A few months ago Ashe, Baptiste, and Widowmaker joined the club, and, just before 2020 wraps up, Winston, Sombra, and D.Va have finally been let in on the fun as well.

The karaoke spawn room on Busan lets Overwatch heroes sing their hearts out.

Apparently added during the November 19 patch, these new voice lines weren’t found by players until a few days later when videos started to pop up. Sure enough, all three have new voice lines, though we wouldn’t exactly call what Sombra is doing “singing.”

Instead of laying down any bars, Sombra simply discusses the merits of hacking, pays off all of the neighbors’ bills (how nice), and changes the Karaoke bar landlord’s WiFi password (not so nice).

Winston’s two lines play on him being both a great ape and a great scientist. One has him explaining the first law of thermodynamics to players: “energy cannot be created or destroyed.” His other is about clapping with his hands and feet since, you know, he’s a gorilla.

Finally, the pièce de résistance, at least for all of the D.Va players out there, are her new Karaoke lines. In Overwatch lore, Hana ‘D.Va’ Song is both an esports champion and K-POP star, so you’d think she would have gotten her lines much sooner than she did.

If the Tank singing “Pew Pew Pew” isn’t adorable enough, she also proudly proclaims, “someone has to save the world, it might as well be me,” along with another line in her native tongue, Korean.

This brings the number of heroes who can sing on Busan up to 17 with Winston, Sombra, and D.Va; which is officially more than half of the 32 heroes currently in the game.
