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.

Did someone really need to cross Hamtaro with Miley Cyrus?

….

Hypocritical side note on myself. I was okay with Yarnie in Saints Row: The Third.

Another free weekend is coming up. The state of the game has altered a little since the last. Soldier, McCree, Bastion, and Mei had their damage fall off ranges buffed, making the Phara and Mercy combo non existent (thank god). Phara is a lot weaker now, and so is Mercy as her healing was nerfed back to what it was when the game first came out. This means a lot of the lower DPS characters can't be out healed by a pocket mercy. Ana's ult has been buffed, I've been playing a lot more of her when people are willing to Rein up for me. I've enjoyed it immensely. Her and Brigitte are the best support counters to Doomfist and Wreckingball to stop their mobility. Lucio's aura has been buffed to be bigger and his Ult now can cancel out every Ult except D.Va's on 200HP characters. Brigitte has been nerfed since the last go, her shield bash CD is now 7 seconds from the 5 it was. I personally thought the 6 second buff was enough. She's not as powerful as she originally was, but is still effective on the right maps. Moira is still an absolute monster and my favorite character to play. Her healing mist got buffed to regen 20% faster, so you can throw out more death orbs instead of solely relying on your healing orbs to keep the team up. It doesn't seem like much, but I'd say I went from throwing 30/70% death/heal orbs to 60/40%. With McCree back in the meta, it does hurt her ult as he can easily cancel it out with a stun flank. Brigitte was the main counter but you could easily keep your distance from her stun.  D.Va is still the best tank by far, and its not even close. Her rocket barrage that was added before the last free weekend has given her the DPS boost she needs to defend herself against high DPS targets, and harass other tanks. With the mobility nerfs to Widow and Hanzo they've seen a downard thrust in play, but I have no doubt no one will experience that next weekend as all the n00b try hards will instantly go for them and get fucking deleted by anyone decent with Zen, Ana, D.Va, Soldier, and even Lucio. Solider and McCree can also harass snipers off their perches with ease now as well. Junkrat is very meta in mid and lower tiers, as a lot of people try max shield bunker on choke point maps like King's Row and Volskaya. He also does work on Brigitte as her smaller shield can't handle his bombs, your trap can snare her shield bash, and his concussion mind can easily be thrown over her defenses.

Since it's a n00b fest, I decided to brush up my Ana skills. Probably the best play I ever had with her. Pretty proud of the bastion ult shutdown to start it off.

      Although its also on the PS4, I purchased Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana for the Switch recently because it's just been collecting dust. It was probably the better option anyways because the graphics look like something out of the N64/PS2 era with modern draw rates. Not a knock against it, as its quite charming... but the game looks like it belongs on the Switch rather than PS4. Everything about this game is so 1998. I've never played any of the Ys games before, but this one caught my eye for the old school hack and slash. It's very Dark Cloud-ish minus the world building. Sprinkle some old Zelda in there as well. The combat is relatively simple with 1 button main attack, and 4 special attacks that consist of holding R1 and pressing A B Y X. These use a SP meter that replenishes on kills. There are also dodge and block counters that give you a special speed combo ability. You have a party of 3, and characters that join where you can swap them out and swap between the three in combat. Each character has a assigned damage type (Slash, Precise, Bash). Having all 3 types helps weaken the right enemies susceptible to these plus you get a rare drop bonus... rather than the 1.1x bonus for having two of the same. Anyways, the story is campy but interesting, the dialogue is 90's cringeworthy, and its a lazy sprinkle of actual voice acting and text reading. The world is  large but a bunch of sectioned off instances that quickly load without a loading screen as you cross them. There are fast travel points but not in every sector, so it requires some old school memorizing where to go at times. As you get special gear, you'll find places that were inaccessible previously open up. I'm 20 hours in and I don't feel like I'm even half way through. So at $60, I feel like I'm getting my money's worth for a decent nostalgia kick. I bet this will be a free PS Plus game next year so when it comes up I highly recommend it without even finish it. I'll report back when I beat it with a proper review.

      Its been quite the stressful couple weeks. Lady had her surgery and is having a very slow recovery process. My bank required specific repairs to the garage to approve the mortgage and instead of paying a massive price to a contractor me and my friend spent 2 days this last weekend busting our asses in 90 degree days with 90% humidity and full sun working on the garage. Thats all done and accepted now.. Yay. Getting into the final stretch here with the house. Hopefully I'll be moving by the end of the month. I might actually have free time this weekend... finally. *knocks on wood*

      The first two eps of AoT season 3 are better than season 2 in its entirety.

      Originally I wasn't going to say anything until I actually finished watching the series (which should be Monday or Tuesday night) but you were right DX, The Ancient Magus' bride is spectacular and I say this after only watching 15 episodes.
      I have to say it's up there with Violet Evergarden for both visuals and story (and it's been awhile since I've seen a show that has completely drawn me in to the point that I sacrifice sleep just to watch another episode). I honestly didn't think the premise would suck me in this much but I'm glad it did (and both episodes with Nevin were extremely well done (I shed some manly tears they were so emotionally impacting)).
      I honestly have to say this is probably going down as one of my favorites shows from the last few years (which isn't really hard considering my problems with the last few seasons), only taking second to the masterpiece that was Violet Evergarden. I can't recommend this show enough for those who want a story driven show focused on character development and world building (I'm just sad I only have 8 episodes and 3 OVA's left, really hope this gets another season once the manga gets further along).

      This simuldub season is pretty meh compared to last. If it wasn't for the fact that MHA and out of all things; Black Clover was still running. I'd be hard pressed to keep up. Ep 1 of Overlord season 3 felt like a waste of time, but the second one made things pretty interesting. Angels of Death seems kind of bland so far. How not to Summon a Demon Lord is a typical fanservice trapped in a video game world show. Same goes for The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar. Lord of Vermilion feels like a better Tokyo Majin.. which isn't saying much. Hopefully it will be something better. Harukana Receive is bouncy bikini beach volley ball, but Haruka is a total best girl, so I'll shamelessly enjoy it. On the opposite end, I'll skip Free! because I'm not watching a bunch of dudes swim, and I'm already watching HR and Hanebado... an anime about freakin Badminton. With Dies Irae and AoT not staring until later in the month that leaves three unlikely contenders for a surprise best in season for me, that isn't Overlord or AoT which I already expect to be solid at worst.
      Magical Girl Raising Project is apparently a dark ass violent series with cute moe magic girls. A total clash of genres. The first two eps only have brief hints at it so far, its mostly just cutesy. But if it turns out like I think it has the potential too. It should be pretty interesting.
      Chio's School Road is a "school" anime thats about Chio's walk to school every day, instead of the actual school day. The absolute absurd happens apparently every time. The first three eps have been pretty hysterical so far. Its different, so I like it.
      Island is a pretty big mystery to me as to what its suppose to be about. It has my interest to see how it unfolds. It can honestly go either way. I guess I'll be reviewing these at the end of the season and we'll see how my opinions have changed since this status update.
