What, are you implying they are too poor to have bars?

Or that they finally achieved the dream of having Tequila come straight from the sink faucet?

They're probably his grandkids. Having 9 or so isn't that outrageous. I just.. can't believe someone would reproduce with him...

A few possibilities that may or may not overlap.

1. He was more handsome when he was younger.

2. She's got a fetish for short dudes.

3. She loves him for his mind/heart (being a super-engineer and future-robot-war hero is sexy)

The comic didn't get an official release, lat alone official translation in Russia because of the Tracer's kiss with her girlfriend, "We can't share this comic with our russian players because of russian laws".

Sombra at least has an interaction with McCree, suggesting that isn't his real name. Of course, given that the comic is vaguely set in a "just before the actual game's non-canonical events", they could have learned about each other in the future.

I'm fine with it; just not sure it counts as cojones. It would have ten years ago.
Given the shitstorm that many people are throwing about it, it's still worth something, even if it's just lonely waifuing guys and "concerned parents" and crazy Christians who cannot countenance the existence of what they find haram.

Really feel like the comic coulda said Merry Christmas once. Unless those are all Holiday trees, or Holiday Claus hung Holiday stockings over the fireplace for all his kids. And if one of our heroes be a Jew, throw up some Hanukkah gear. For Christs sake, throw in a Kwanzaa omnic or something.

Tracer being a dyke is utterly boring and predictable.

And that Rein/Torb pic, literally cannot unsee this:

Well, shitstorm means more attention, and as Wilde said, the only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about.

They get the best of both worlds really. No such thing as bad publicity, and they get to claim how brave they are for standing up to harassment/hate.

I don't care if Tracer is gay, I just wish I could look at it without being so cynical and thinking it was a last minute addition rather than having penned these backgrounds from the start. Oh, and it helps legitimise all those awful Widow/Tracer shippers. Blergh.

That's kind of where I am, too. It's not really Blizzard's fault exactly; they're hardly the first to do this, and such efforts probably do boost the brand name. But my reaction's just: "meh".

I'm getting to the point where I think large franchises are almost fundamentally unable to write good stories.

If by shippers you mean porn, then yes.
