Default Overwatch



Who else is gonna be pre-ordering this? Looks like the best multiplayer shooter since TF2.

Looks good.

Battleborn is another one that looks similar in terms of game design and visuals in terms of characters and the general bright colour palette. I'm not sure if it is a shooter or RPG though. Haven't really looked into it at all apart from noticing the similar look to Overwatch.

This looks good though.

I was able to play it during one of the beta test weekends, it looks and feels spectacular. There were some balancing issues but that's to be expected with such a large and diverse number of characters.

Currently playing it on my friends closed beta account. This closed beta feels like the final game already. The lag compensation is insane, I'm playing on American servers and don't feel that much lag at all. All the heroes have their uses and every one of them is fun to play.

For TF2 players, there are some definite similarities between certain TF2 classes and Overwatch characters (though the Overwatch characters generally bring more to the table, they feel the same way as the TF2 classes).

In my (admittedly limited) experience:

Pharah = Soldier
Junkrat = Demo
Mercy = Medic
Tracer = Scout
Widowmaker = Sniper

There are characters comparable to the Engineer but I haven't played them. Ditto for Heavy.

Pretty much except all the overwatch heroes have abilities that makes them much more fun than TF2. Tracer is so god damn annoying but.

Wow. First time seeing the trailer and game play. I thought it was some fgg0t shit. Very impressive, I'm drooling. Definitely a pick up. What is everyone getting it for? I'll get it for PS4.

I'm guessing this is supposed to be what Destiny should of been? Something similar? More fast paced, special powers, fps, objective kind of supernatural game?

Interesting.

PC. It looks and feels like TF2 but it has the potential to be better imo.

Not at launch. I don't know if they're planning to allow for cross platform play but imo PC players would just stomp if they did.
