Overwatch - Trailers


Sledgstone

In a time of global crisis, an international task force of heroes banded together to restore peace to a war-torn world. This organization, known as Overwatch, ended the crisis and helped maintain peace for a generation, inspiring an era of exploration, innovation, and discovery.

After many years, Overwatch's influence waned and it was eventually disbanded. Now in the wake of its dismantling, conflict is rising once again. Overwatch may be gone…but the world still needs heroes.

Overwatch is a highly stylized team-based shooter set on earth in the near future. Every match is an intense multiplayer showdown pitting a diverse cast of soldiers, mercenaries, scientists, adventurers, and oddities against each other in an epic, globe-spanning conflict.

I'm more impressed by the Cinematic trailer than I am by the actual gameplay. Blizzard can surprisingly make Pixar quality movies. The game looks like a fun FPS multiplayer with heroes like a MMOBA game. I hope they do more with this game than just make a competitive shooter. I'd love to see a single player / co-op campaign. With a cinematic trailer like that, the cut scenes would be great.

I'm excited for the D.Va Changes. the Mercy changes are crazy. I just got decent with her and now shes a bit different. I will admit it was demoralizing when she nulled your team wipe, and when you're playing with randoms and no one is even trying to kill the mercy it made it frustrating, but this will be even more frustrating in that situation. At least I know I'll never waste my single rez on an attack Widowmaker. XD

Those new rockets for D.Va look way powerful. I bet they'd tear Reinhearts shield away in a single barrage. Mercy flying all over the place seems a bit whacky. The only real tell that will give her position away is the stream from her heals and buffs.

They are, but you cant really aim them good, so you're really not going to hit anyone from far away. D.VA has suffered since her HP armor nerf, shes probably the most squishy tank. They will never make her like she was ever again so the answer was definitely to give her more power. With her Defense Matrix uptime heavily nerfed she'll no longer be able to cancel out McCree's and Soldiers ult. I don't think those can single handedly destroy Rein's shield, they barely take down a single character. Rein has suffered a lot lately though, and once the Junkrat buff goes live, I bet more people start playing him which will make it really hard on Rein as Junkrat is the hard counter to his shield besides Bastion.

Mercy is going to become very powerful on console. People have a hard enough time taking care of Phara, and unless you're 76, McCree, Widow, or a really good Hanzo, Phara players do as they please if they have mastered fuel conservation to stay in the air at all times. Even knowing where Mercy is, her mobility will be too much during her Ult. There will be a lot of blown High Noons just to cheese take care of it.

I LOVE this character. I have a feeling shes going to be hard to get a hold of as time goes on. Kudos to Blizzard for making healers like Brigitte and Moria that can fight and disengage... basically healers that don't need to be protected by the team and are fun to play with decent offense. But even more so for Brigitte's ability to be a frontline brawler healer. Shes a beast, with an awesome kit. Her shield bash cancels out all abilities if you land them right, and cancels ults if you're in the right place to perform it. Her only downfall is she has a map meta. Escort is her forte, open maps are definitely her weakness. You need tight corridors to get good positioning on shield bash stuns and because her main attack is a generously ranged melee. Plus your attacks are what heals, so you have to stay active to provide heals to your team. But damn shes super fun to play. The no one playing healers has declined ever since Moira came out, but now I think you'll have two a lot of the times, which currently is a meta team comp. Having 2 healers vs. a team with only 1 is going to favor the team with the most healers, and it will compound if the other team's healer isn't very good at playing healer.

Overwatch is free to play until Tuesday if you want to try out some of the character reworks and the new, more fun to play healers. Here is some of my latest gameplay with my new fav.

Heh, I was going to play this over the weekend since it was free but Blizzard yet again picks one of the worst weekends for me to do this. Between the new FFXIV content patch on Tuesday (so much to fucking do x.x) and Detroit: Become Human having come out on Friday I don't have the time (which I'm fucking loving Detroit, probably the best $70 I've spent in a long time). Sucks because I really wanted to try out Brigette, I'll just have to wait until the next free weekend.

I'm enjoying Brigette while I can. She'll eventually get nerfed to uselessness. All the pros and big channels are crying how shes too hard of a counter to Tracer. Tracer finally got nerfed after 2 years, and it was only to the radius of her ult. Brigette is the only real hard counter to her. Shes really not OP if you know how to take her down. Phara and Junkrat both are super hard counters to her, but both of them have their own hard counter and Tracer has never had one. Winston was your best bet, but he only chased her off. Brigette destroys her, and even then thats if you catch her getting too close. The whole reason I hate playing Mercy or Zen when the other team has a damn Tracer is because she just keeps getting behind the lines and killing me with no one else helping or even paying attention. Its why I mained Lucio most of the time because I could boop her away from me and run off to stay alive.

I don't buy the whole "stale meta" when Tracer was always picked before and now she is not. Its pure hypocrisy seeing as deathball and dive comp has been the meta since triple tank got killed off. But since Tracer is the face of the game, I'm sure eventually Brigette's damage is going to get nerfed and her stuns are going to get toned down to where everyone is back to playing Lucio and Mercy. Luckily Mora is a lot of fun to play, I honestly play her more than Brigette, since she's an off healer like Zen and I get pigeon holed into healer 99% of the time. With the Hanzo rework he is always picked now. 9 times out of 10 when you load in hes the first character locked in within seconds.

      When I watched Tokyo Ghoul season 1 and 2 a few years ago, I thought it was the most over hyped pile of shit I've ever seen. Apparently it didn't follow the manga at all. I've been watching season 3 just because its a simuldub, and while I find it more entertaining, it's so disjointed from the first two seasons, it doesn't make any sense as a whole. Apparently they somewhat decided to start following the manga after skipping a few arcs? Apparently they announced season 4 and it's going to skip more between 3 and 4? What a train wreck... They might as well start over.

      You could definitely tell this was the last E3 for this generation of consoles. Super small showcases for everyone this year. Next year's E3 will be back to the ultra hype reels for Sony and Microsoft unveiling the next consoles followed with the games that are being made for them. It will be an off year for Battlefield next year, but the first COD will be by C studio Sledgehammer, since MW4 will be the last COD this gen.

      Absolutely gutted and devastated to hear of Anthony Bourdain's death, turned an already shitty day into an extremely shitty day. I would of said something earlier but I had to come to terms and sort out my own thoughts on this (and of course get through a 10 hour work day).
      The world truly is a bit darker and a lot less interesting today with his loss. His passion, gift for storytelling, humanity, and all around awesome attitude were what drew me in when I first started watching A Cook's Tour (his first show) so many years ago and what cemented my love for this man during the run of No Reservations. Sadly I never did get around to watching Parts Unknown or The Layover but I can only imagine they were as good as the other two. This man truly had a gift for opening his heart and mind to people and their culture as well as getting them to open up as well.
      RIP Mr. Bourdain, not only have you opened my eyes to new things, given me countless hours of enjoyment, and been an all around awesome person you've also inspired my love for travel (that one day I will hopefully get to do) and my love for other cultures. You will truly be missed and my heart goes out to your daughter and family in this extremely tragic moment. I can only hope you've finally found the peace that so eluded you in life.

      I bought a Nvidia Shield yesterday with that 20% off ebay sale. (These random once a month one day ebay coupon flash sales are really really nice.) I'll get the shield delivered sometime tomorrow or monday. I'm looking forward to trying it out and hopefully it'll serve great as a plex server for me. I've been using plex for a while now on my pc and it great, but I really want to have access to all my movies/anime/series to watch in bed without having to have my main pc on acting as a media server. Its also nice, that it fully supports 4k. When I eventually buy a 4k tv, all my 4k streaming needs will already be in place.
