Re: The Video Game Discussion Topic!
The next few days are the open beta for Blizzard's new FPS/MOBA Overwatch. I'm not sure how much I'll get to play (my best chance is probably some time Saturday) but if anyone else was checking it out on PC, I'd be glad to join a group of friendly faces. My battletag is Vogelmensch#1312.
My sister, brother, and I tried Overwatch yesterday. All three of us ended up playing most of the day, and stayed up super late.
Overall, I'd say it's really good. The first-person gameplay feels great, and the maps are designed in such a way that there aren't many down points in the fighting. I also really like the play of the game feature, which excellently highlights whoever got what the game itself considered the the best elimination of multiple enemies for the previes match, and then replays that highlight for everyone else to see.
Right now I'm really liking Soldier 76, Bastion, And D.Va. Although I feel like Roadhog is a little OP right now. And I seem to have at least one in every game I play. I've been trying to get some experience as Zenyatta, since his discord orbs can be especially detrimental to Tank characters.
I'm gonna get me this game.
