  • Overwatch Anyone?

    Has anyone been keeping their eyes on Overwatch? It a Team-based, FPS that seems pretty cool. Blizzard seams to be doing to good job of balancing out the heroes from what I have heard. Also, they seem to really cater to any kind of play style with the huge emphasis on team play.

    Here is the "official" Overwatch cinematic trailer by Blizzard.
    "When attacking a stronger opponent, Attack swiftly and with full force at their weakest point— take them out before the can react, or Fall back and engage in guerrilla actions,” Spartan 117.

        12th will be almost all in on this game - a bunch of us did the beta and it's SUPER fun. It's nice for a bunch of reasons:

        1) It's team based - there are complimentary roles and staying coordinated and maintaining SA is super important.

        2) It's fast, but it doesn't require pixel-perfect aiming. Hell, there's some classes where you barely need to aim at all!

        3) It's looking really refined. This is my first Blizzard game in quite some time and it's a nice change of pace from the broken stuff EA calls 'release'. The beta release was as high quality as most games get a year after launch.

        4) 40 bucks to start aint bad for a Tier-1 release.

          Pre ordered, my real life friends want to play but they all suck at FPSs (too much MOBA and Smash). Will love to have a group of TG players to run with too

            I'm pretty excited for this one. I bought a key awhile back, and after the open beta, I have no regrets. It's a fantastic game.

                  Don't have any of us playing together, unfortunately. Here's some content to check out though to learn a little more about the game:

                  First off, most of the gameplay videos I've seen look like a super chaotic mess. In reality, the game play is so much more refined and orderly than that - it's more like a sustained fight around a flag in a Battlefield game. The BEST way to get a feel for the game, IMHO, is to checkout the Heroes themselves. Checkout the video below. It goes through the 5 things each hero can do.

                  - Primary attack (left mouse button)
                  - Secondary attack (right mouse button - though I'm not sure all heroes have a secondary)
                  - E ability (E key ... could be heal, deploy shield, drop mine, etc)
                  - Shift ability (LSHIFT ... usually movement or mode related, e.g. sprint, wall-climb, etc)
                  - "Ultimate" ability (Q key ... their "special move" that charges with participation in the fight)





                  Beyond that, here are a couple of documentary-style clips about the development of the game. This clip (part 2/3 in the series) talks about the FPS heritage, the theory used in building this game, the philosophy behind the it (i.e. why there's no scoreboard), etc, etc:

                    Also some reports of a new Hero announcement Monday.

                    I highly recommend checking out these semi/origin stories into the Overwatch universe. These are really high quality, and feature the Heroes.
