The first I've heard of Overwatch was when all the hentai art of the characters flooded google image search...

What were you searching to get Overwatch hentai results without knowing what Overwatch was?

It's like Pokemon (Snap?), combined with a farming game, combined with Monster Rancher

all good elements from otherwise typically separate genres/concepts

very well designed game

I currently play OW1 at 220 FPS
server says 30ms latency (which often seems like a lie, especially since it's always exactly 30)
and the IND which I assume is input delay is always at 20ms

I'm very pleased with my free Comcast upgrades.
I've roughly paid the same price for like 13 years now and have gone from something like 150 20mbps to 680mbps last I measured over that time.
Nearly getting a gigabit line without paying for it.

edit: Looked at my post history to find it was actually 20 back in ~2010... crazy
150 was something I had for a while (also free upgrade) but in the past few years that has shot up to 680

This is an odd assertion. Nobody said they wanted the Maniac Mansion art style for Monkey Island and it is a very different presentation than classic Monkey Island, which also changed quite a bit between 1 & 2 but were both very well made- from Mark Ferarri's amazing EGA work that also had elements reminiscent of Loom, much of which was brought forward to the VGA version. And MI2's hand drawn backgrounds changed that up considerably but still had fantastic style, albeit a bit blurrier than MI1 when digitized from the original artwork. None of that was especially like Thimbleweed Park or the game it took inspiration from in it's art. Curse of Monkey Island was pretty great in most aspects also. All 3D efforts have been a significant downgrade from those, IMO.

I guess I have no idea what you're looking for then... because that's what MI2 looked like...

One guy said he wanted "good graphics" and you seemed to be pining for classic graphics, but I guess I got that wrong.
These current graphics on this game look good to me.

I don't have any issue with the art style... I've played just about every classic point-and-click Adventure there is.

At first I was a little concerned that the characters would blend into the background after seeing screenshots... but now that the game is running and the characters are animated with their idle poses etc. it looks completely fine. No issue.

Surprisingly, it seems to have taken a page from Schafer's book with the art style of Broken Age... but I actually think it pulls it off even better than Broken Age did.

I have to admit I don't really follow this series... probably haven't played it since the PSX maybe even... but it's cool that they've kept the Tekken hit sound effects since then, it's kind of like a game signature and good for them seemingly having recognized that.

So, if you consume aspartame, and have a normal diet, it will not effect weight gain.

Aspartame, as RedEye's NYT link shows, does have some metabolic effects that are disconcerting. Both my doc and the nutritionist I visited to get this party started were both adamant about cutting out aspartame, among other artificial chemicals frequently found in food, to help me burn fat more efficiently. Also, what do you consider a "normal" diet? Because I can almost guarantee that it is not what is the average for the US.

Food... real food... which includes sugar and fat and the whole spectrum of nutrients.
Clearly aspartame is unnatural, but it's tested both in thousands of studies and just by the time it's been on the market.
People get real crazy about this stuff.

If you intake an appropriate amount of calories and variety of foods... you'll be fine.
No need to obsess over what an individual egg does, or two pieces of bacon... etc. etc.

Somebody on my social media has started a whole crusade (company? dunno if they make money from it) around cutting out oils from their foods.
One of their big targets is sesame oil... yes, that same sesame oil that has been consumed by humans for 5000 years now.
Apparently it causes a whole list of issues! Pretty much all your problems in life are from eating sesame oil.

The secret to weight loss is to... not eat/order out. 99% of the menu at any given American restaurant is horrible for you. I happen to like cooking and as a result do it a lot, but most people I encounter are (inexplicably) terrified by grocery shopping and/or cooking.

I lost my weight by no longer shopping actually.
No snacks at home, no snacking.

I eat two meals a day, typically one large one out of home at about ~1,000 calories, and then I have a meal service at home that is usually about ~500 calories. So ~1,500 a day.

I'll bite, how does limiting aspartame help weight loss?

It was an example in reference to the "chemicals" portion of that. However, here is an article explaining it.

I wasn't aware that an exhaustive list was required.

I didn't ask for a list, I just thought it funny that the one thing you mentioned by name was that...

"However, the aspartame did not seem to make a difference for the mice on the normal diet: There was no difference in weight gain between the group given aspartame water and the group given regular water."

So, if you consume aspartame, and have a normal diet, it will not effect weight gain.

I've been waiting some 25 years now for the bad effects to of aspartame to kick in.
It used to be that it was poison, cancerous, that I would get migraines.
Now I'm supposed to get fatter! But that's not happening either.

No, not in the slightest.

Limiting calories, especially junk calories and chemicals like aspartame, however does. I eat once a day and that's whenever I happen to get hungry. It's rarely the same time each day. I soak up about 1800 calories which is 600 short of what my at rest metabolic rest rate really wants. Add in light exercise (walking the dog on the trails of my local state park) and daily motion and I am running a "severe" deficit. However, it's also helped me ditch quite a bit of weight in ten months. Never feel starved and my A1C has dropped 3.2 points in the same ten months.

Weight loss is easy if you can break the sugar and carb addiction that the American diet has spoon fed to us since birth and you understand that it is a gradual process that will takes months before you see visible results. You really don't have to do much for your body to start actively burning the excess fat to power itself. You'll hit a plateau and then you need to up your light exercise to moderate exercise (which may mean just a longer walk or a walk over variegated terrain with some uphill sections) but that will kick your body back in to fat burning mode. You'll lose on average anywhere from .5 to 1 pound a day but at least 50% of that will be natural water weight loss which you'll naturally replenish (or should be) the following day.

That's it. That's weight loss. No medicines, surgeries, or extreme methods required. Just be mindful of what you take in and move. Your body is the product of millions of years of evolution to find the most efficient biological machine to schlep your brain around.

I'm hoping that Bob, Rhea and/or the show will get the respect they deserve next year.

Holy shit, it's been nominated for 24 primetime Emmy categories over 6 years and never won.

It doesn't surprise me that they're doing this... but it does annoy me as yet another broken promise in a string of broken promises related to OW2.
Battlepasses (the existence of which is also itself a broken promise) were supposed to only be for cosmetics... now it's cosmetics AND heroes,
"But don't worry, they're on the free battlepass!" doesn't really help the situation much, as described earlier regarding the need to grind the free tree and the temptation to just pay for the hero / FOMO
