    This was a cool breakdown. Im happy w my overwatch experience for the 20$ I paid for it, but if they want a full 60/70$ from me theyll need to include all this story in an in-game campain w some of those nice utube vids acting as cut scenes. after seeing the trailer the 1st time I was so bummed there was no single player.

    Moira lore since it was left out: Moira was a scientist working for overwatch. Her methods were extremely controversial and many of her peers censured her out of disapproval. She eventually published a work detailing her theories and methods. It got out into the public, and given that Commander Jack Morrison was already under fire, he couldn’t allow Moira to stay in overwatch because of the horrible publicity it brought. Moira was secretly recruited by Blackwatch’s commander Gabriel Reyes shortly after being fired from overwatch. She now has even less restrictions on the research she did, and she began experimenting on herself and commander Reyes. Moira gave herself and Reyes phase-like abilities as a result of her genetic experimentation, and later, once he became the Reaper, Reyes would use this ability to further Talon’s cause. Once overwatch fell, Moira traveled to oasis, where she did furthered her research. Then, she joined talon and reunited with Reyes. Currently, she works for talon because they supply funding for her research.

    I'm confused about three things: 1) Where exactly does the original Overwatch fall into this story? In some of the chapters, the narrator does say things like "about 8 years before the current events of the game", but only in some chapters. 2) How exactly does the actual game itself fit into the narrative? What narrative sense does it make that suddenly a random collection of 6 of these characters fights another random collection of of 6 of these characters in a random city? Or is it just like a beach episode in an anime that has absolutely zero relation to anything, where enemies are suddenly friends throwing beach balls with each other? I'm fine with it if it's just that, but I want to _know_ if that's what it is. 3) At 15:22 they say how the woman was brainwashed to murder her husband Lacroix. At 16:37 McCree and Reaper go talk to Mr. Lacroix. Did the actual murder of Lacroix happen later, even though it was described earlier?
