Overwatch Clueless Gamer: Conan O’Brien vs Game of Thrones stars
Overwatch secured a terrifically timed slot on Conan O’Brien’s Clueless Gamer segment last night.
While Overwatch is the biggest thing in games right now, out in the world of people who don’t consider a control pad an essential life accessory, Game of Thrones is the cultural phenomenon of the moment. So – naturally – Team Coco is joined by Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) and Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), neither of whom seem any more clued-in than O’Brien to this particular style of game.
(As an aside, both have worked around games; Dinklage infamously provided the original voice of Destiny’s Ghost, and Headey has been in a couple of games: Risen, Dishonored and of course Telltale’s Game of Thrones. She also plays Luna Freya in the upcoming Final Fantasy 15: Kingsglaive movie.)
I’m not sure the segment does much to show off Overwatch’s strengths and attractions, but it certainly puts it in front of a lot of eyes. That’s probably all it needs to do.
