Re: Overwatch (the thread of the game)

I should be getting Overwatch for PC. I enjoyed my time with the beta, and many of my friends will be playing it.

I was somewhat skeptical of it, as I have never liked TF2. I enjoyed my time with Overwatch beta more than I ever have with TF2. While I don't think it is amazing, it is good enough, and enough of my friends will be playing that will make it worthwhile to join in.

same here, John. I actually even fired up TF2 over the weekend to see if my thoughts would have changed since playing the Overwatch beta. Nope.

So yeah, my pre-order of Overwatch will be arriving today. Looking forward to it and I'm glad that it seems that a few fellow RB buds will be playing as well. Heroes Of The Storm has been lonely! Haha.

One thing I've noticed about Overwatch compared to TF2 is that Overwatch matches are much faster. For non attack-defense maps so many go to time because neither team is able to get that last point in, whereas it seems Overwatch is designed to end fairly quickly (to balance out the fact that there's no drop in/out like TF2).

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.

That was more of a jab at Noise who has been trying desperately for me to buy Overwatch over Battleborn - I wont be buying either until later this year regardless.

I have zero interest in Overwatch, but the animated shorts are excellent. I just want more of those.

Hmm I think I like the sound of that.

Battleborn is only $40 now -- Gearbox must be sweating. Only 2-6K people online, more people are playing Borderlands 2.

Shame -- looks like there's lots of great content in Battleborn, and without microtransactions too.

Unsurprising, you can't get online at the moment. Reminding me of the Diablo 3 release, just a bit.
