Oh, you are right on that. I just don't think it makes for very interesting games, specially if the games they take from were already accessible in the first place.

I can understand that, no matter how much I could disagree with it. :lol:

BTW, if you guys want to play together just hit me up. Same name as here.

Battleborn has more of a PVE aspect apparently, where Overwatch is much more like TF2 in that it's completely PVP.

Battleborn is a first person MOBA while Overwatch is Blizz TF2.

because RPS says Battleborn isn't as good as Overwatch.

While that makes me less interested in Battleborn, it doesn't make me any more interested in Overwatch either.

Because we're bros, and you trust my opinion regarding FPS's, and I'm saying you should check out Overwatch.

I had no intention of picking up Overwatch, or even really getting back into anything multiplayer. Then I tried out the open beta and pre-ordered before the end of the beta weekend.

Both games are unique, and I like both developers. I'm on the fence about Battleborn at the moment. I want to play both though, I am thinking Overwatch for now and Battleborn at the potential for a price drop.

Are any of you on board for PC Overwatch tomorrow? I loved healing in the beta, I really dig support characters.

Even though latency will keep me from playing with anyone here, I will be skipping lunch at work for the next week or so and buying Overwatch tomorrow! (In debt over my Japan trip).

I was kind of thinking of checking out either Battlefield 1, Titanfall 2, or the new CoD this year to jump back into something multiplayer... but sounds like all my friends are going nuts over this.

Was never huge on TF2 or Blizzard stuff beyond Starcraft and Lost Vikings... so I dunno.
