How About that Overwatch?

Cinematic Trailer

 

Gameplay Trailer

 

You know, if not for the Gameplay Trailer, I would've thought Blizzard was trying to pull a Disney.

I personally thought they made another MOBA/Kid's movie (that would get a huge following).

 

At the very moment I saw the ape, I was like "Another MOBA."

But I got a pleasant surprise at seeing an arena fps.

Looks fun. I'd rather them make a movie/TV series out of this though... The characters are cool. And I don't know even know them. Reaper looks dope. And obligatory British named smart ape. And Mercy..... And... They all look cool...................

 

However, I'm too lazy to make an account on their site.

If the only thing I ever saw of it was the Cinematic trailer, I would've thought that they were going into the Animated Feature Film business too. They clearly have the talent, and from that WoW money, resources for it.

Yeah if this was another moba style game I'd just give up.

The gameplay trailer makes it looks awesome, maybe blizzard has struck gold once again? lol.

They could make a movie about this too hahaha.

I have Blizzcon stream access so watching everything is pretty much obligatory.

 

Its a free arena style Team Fortress 2 clone. Of course i will play it. Will i invest money in it? Only time will tell.

Blizzard seems to be making nice simple versions of games IE , Hearthstone , heroes and now this. After making wow so big by making it accessible to all levels I think they've learned a lot on how to make games just fun again. Although heroes and hearthstone don't really interest me since i all ready play games in there genres and can't be bothered to play more. If this is simple like those 2 though im sure ill give it a chance since i haven't played an fps game since I played PS2.

I could give two s---s for Hearthstone. Biggest load of garbage Blizzard have ever pumped out. I wont waste my time on it at all.

 

Heroes of the Storm and Overwatch. Now those are two games i can certainly see myself playing.

Who is Pegi and why is she still 16?

 

The game does look fun but then it kind of looks like Brink. I just hope it's not bad as Brink, it looks promising. I miss fast paced shooters.

let's not get too hyped or anything

Blizzard is known for canceling games.

 

However this certainly looks interesting.

For some reason it sorta reminded me of TF2.

but it could be interesting to try out

Watching the Cinematic and Gameplay trailer gives me some hope that the game will be good. Plus if its anything like TF2 I'm sure to put some hours into it.

The cinematic trailer makes me more hyped for the WoW movie then the game.

I'm kinda burnt out of shooters and the only one I really care about right now is Battlefront.

Of course it will be free to play.

I dont like great games because they are free.

That is incredibly close minded of you. But that is your choice. If you choose to ignore great game experiences only because its free to play, that is your choice.

i like how you have skills where you can delete my quote and type something else. the problem is, while doing that, you put the quoted message in the wrong context.

 

so you can type, i give you that, but understand... hmmm..?

 

i like games. i don't care if they are great, or bad to the rest of the public. i decide what i like or don't like. in this particular situation i dont like any free games because 9/10 they are not really free, they either demand you grind for many hours of your life for any progress or give you the option to pay some money to get your progress done more quickly. that's not what i would call an ethical video game, and i'm not going to waste my time looking for the few good ones out of a thousand bad ones (that are free to play), just not worth it.

 

had you quoted my original response without mocking me, i would have given you a kinder answer.

Hey it's Free2Play, but also Free2Uninstall if you don't find it enjoyable, at least give it a try before saying that you don't wanna play it

Dota 2 IS free and the stuff you buy in it has nothing - absolutely nothing to do with the way you play the game. Blizzard realizes that this is a good model for F2P- No, THE BEST WAY to make a free to play game, so I will assume it will choose the direction that cosmetics that have no effect on the game will be dropped every now and then, and then there is a store where you can buy cosmetic stuff. And I don't mind that. I think it's a great model. The microtransactions aren't forced upon you in anyway, other than the odd choice of "Item of the day" which is on sale for like 75% and I don't mind it. Item drops are consistent..

 

I mean, I don't understand. Dota is a great experience and does little to nothing to show you the marketplace. Hell, you can even SELL the stuff that you get for REAL MONIES that you can use to buy games in Steam! Now is that awesome or what?

 

*sigh*

Just give Overwatch a shot. Play it. Try it when it comes out. Don't make silly assumptions based on ignorant claims made by other people who never played F2P games. I understand if you have this point of view because of mobile games like Dungeon Keeper by Electronic Arts, but just.. Give Overwatch a chance.. There is a good possibility that this game might actually make you change you mind.

(If you can't wait, go try out Team Fortress 2. Also free.)

Yesterday a friend messaged me about this. I have always been a little skeptical to everything Blizzard does after Diablo III and Cataclysm. Hearthstone was apparently okay, but I never liked card games after Yu-Gi-Oh.

I said "Don't get overhyped. From what I've heard, it's just a TF2 clone with lot's of girls."

Then he gave me a link.

Now as I'm writing this, I am still cleaning up bits of my brain with a mop, because the trailers just blew me the fuck away.

 

 

 

 

Honestly? Looks like Team Fortress 2 with an action-skill element, like Dota, making something like combos a really relevant thing. I just hope this has a competitive mode, because this game really looks good and I have high hopes for it. It's still Blizzard though..

 

BTW, try to apply for the beta.

Edit: Ehem, when I said competitive mode I meant as in a competitive scene. Just wanted to clarify.

After seeing the cinematic trailer for Blizzard's new IP in 17 years, Overwatch. First off, I am excited as hell for this. A new game from Blizzard that isn't related to the other games and it has many good ideas.
The characters are instantly likeable, like Tracer, my favourite from the reveal (not just because she's British XD ) And Winston, a little nod to Beast from X-men. This proves Blizzard still has the talent and creativity from Warcraft, StarCraft and Diablo.
And it's a first person shooter which is very different for Blizzard, this is technically their first real Shooter and the abilities for most of the characters seem pretty solid.
And the gameplay trailer gave me a TF2 feel in a good way, it has personality, humour, creativity and hopefully strong gameplay.

I think Blizzard is gonna have a good future for the next few years to come.
