symmetra

It’s been awhile since I’ve gotten to talk about SJWs sperging out about video games, so let’s hit one of those tales up for old time’s sake, shall we? This one concerns Overwatch and a Halloween skin released for the Symmetra character. I’ve never played Overwatch myself, and have no immediate plans to (Battlefield is more my style), but I am somewhat familiar with Symmetra.

Normally, she looks like this:

But after one of the skins is applied, she takes on a vampire-like tone:

If you’re some pathetic soul on Tumblr, this apparently meets the standard for white-washing:

Imagine being so bereft of sanity that you feel the need to bitch about a fucking Halloween-themed video game skin? THIS IS REALITY, PEOPLE! They also leave out the fact that there’s another skin where she’s blue. Yes, blue.

Tumblr’s gonna be Tumblr, though.

    1. Well, not really. IIRC, the character is of Indian descent, so a Hindu deity appearance would be quite appropriate.

      Not that it’d make a dent in the solid bone that most Tumblrites call skulls.

      1. Yeah, but you see, Blizzard is an American company and most players are not of Indian descent. So, the mere fact that skin exists in Overwatch means cultural appropriation. It doesn’t matter to them that having such skin makes perfect sense and that it’s honoring the culture, not making fun of it or stealing it, which these idiots imply.

    2. Believe it or not, that has ALREADY caused some outrage for the exact reason you mentioned. Cultural appropriation.

  1. Well here is where it’d do the cucks and cunts some good to research Vampire Lore, especially VTM which melded a bunch of the lores together. In VTM all vampires, save the Assamite clan get paler with age, undead and no sunlight so it’s a given. Assamites on the other hand, they get darker. In closing SHUT THE FUCK UP TUMBLR YOU DON’T KNOW SHIT ABOUT VAMPIRES GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE!! Ahem…I don’t like when they show ignorance on vampires…

    1. I believe that the best response to these idiots is not kowtowing, but telling them to shut the fuck up and get lost. So yeah, I agree with you.

  2. Is there anyone on Tumblr that actually has a brain, can take criticism and simply ignores “mean things” people say?

    1. Probably some of the people who only opened an account to upload images of things they like and not engage in conversation.

  3. the blue skinned one got criticism from indians themselves. She was also forced to be autistic by the fandom for no real reason.
