I knew I'd still get it wrong somehow!

Pharah it is, then.

My second choice would be Hanzo or Tracer, because of their mobility. I miss my parkour from Brink.

Tracer looks fun. I really want to try out Reaper (along with 90% of the playerbase, I'm sure) and then the Buddhist robot.

The support classes in this game look really interesting.

[up][up] For what it's worth, this isn't exactly a true shoutcast. All the players, and both of the announcers, are Blizzard devs.

At least ninety percent of this world's problems are caused by full-grown adults acting and thinking like spoiled children.

I must admit, that looked hella fun.

Can't wait to try it. Admittedly, it will actually be my first Blizzard Game, but still.

Tracer looks really neat, as does Symmetra

Hanzo, Reaper, Widowmaker, and Tracer (I am really good with scout in TF 2...so I imagine I would have plently of fun with her) might be my favorites. That robot....magician (?) also would probably be my favorite support class.

I don't really like playing tanks or turrents (Engineer, Demoman, Heavy, and Soldier are my least played classes in TF 2)

Expect the characters to appear in Gmods.

I still find it interesting that this looks to be an attempt to rival TF 2. I guess Taking the Dota series really started a rivalry between blizzard and valve eh?

He's clearly a robot monk.

This game is making me seriously consider getting a proper gaming PC. I need a more powerful rig for my editing anyway. Still, I can't spend much, so I'm hoping I can get something for cheap that will still allow for good performance.

I doubt this game would be one to have particularly high system requirements...

I think it will, actually. Higher than World of Warcraft, at any rate... Though probably still playable for pure performance at minimum settings (but why would you want to?).

I'm a little annoyed at The Medic being a White Magician Girl. Similarly, a Female friend of mine is likely to comment "Of COURSE the Medic is a girl!" when she sees this. I think I'm just spoiled by the Team Fortress 2 Medic being a bloodthirsty quack who casually jokes about stealing people's skeletons.

I am loving Zenyatta, the Buddhist robot, though. Winston is entertaining as well.

And I never knew Swedish people were dwarves.

Don't take life too seriously. It's only a temporary situation.

[up]Well, obviously they had to make their The Medic a more straight example otherwise the TF 2 ripoff complaints would be even greater in quantity.

Nov 15th 2014 at 9:48:14 PM

i actually really like the idea of more hero-skill based FPS instead of twitch accuracy. it's the reason i preferred to play engie or medic in TF 2. I like the movement/positioning/strategy, aiming down sights is kinda boring for me. I could never play sniper.

it sounds like it would be very hard to balance out, though. Twitchy characters have an obvious ramp in killing ability as the player gets better. Skill-based ones that have auto-target aspects... it's less clear how they can balance those skills so that it's usable for beginners but should have an equal amount of room to grow as players get better... without resorting to reflexes/aiming being the "skill."

I'd actually think I'd welcome a name change. Overwatch is a term for an actual military tactic. The game...doesn't reconcile with something like that.

Jan 12th 2015 at 2:46:14 PM

It's been said Blizzard's lawyer checked with the owners of the app using the name and worked things out with them before the game's trademark was filed.

This is probably just a small hitch, and Blizzard can make it so they don't have to budge on the name. Honestly, I want it to remain as it is.

PC Gamer preview. Not much really new but a pretty positive glance at the game so far.

Overwatch will be playable at PAX East.

Also, there's going to be a panel for the game (as well as Hearthstone and Heroes of the Storm) on March 6th at 10:30 AM EST, most likely with new information.

Two new characters were announced at PAX East— Zarya and McCree.

A new payload map was also revealed— Watchpoint: Gibraltar.

Expect the Beta to land this fall.

Both look like good characters. Wondering how it plays since people have hands-on time with it.

Zarya looks cool to play.

Like the Pyro, but hopefully with less inordinate nerfing.
