Overwatch - Blizzard's team FPS/MOBA

Post by Tregarde » 11/09/14

Looks like Blizzard is doing their take on a Team Fortress-like game. Once again, the trailer is really nifty and makes me wish Bliz would make movies! Though, unlike the dark & gritty trailers of Diablo, Warcraft or Starcraft, this time they've taken on an Pixar-esque style.

Looks like Overwatch is getting a bunch of CG animated shorts:

... and tie-in comics, with some pretty nifty art.

Overwatche's first animated short, "Recall"
Honestly, sometimes I think Blizzard should make movies instead of games. I usually enjoy the cinematics more than their games.

Wouldn't you kill to this stuff as a series?

Everything about Overwatch is extremely appealing to me.

Except for the gameplay.

The final animated short before the game launches. Here's hoping they decide to make more soon.

It's official, Overwatch has conquered the internet. It is now more popular in South Korean net cafes than League of Legends, putting down the beast that has reigned for 204 weeks (just shy of 4 years!).

For now, anyway.

Their first post-release short. Why are these people not making movies themselves?

The first new character cinematic short (though Ana deserved a short, who doesn't love sniper mom?). Overwatch has been doing good adding diversity to their cast.

Overwatch's newest hero is a robot, put together by an 11 year old girl in Numbani (a city in Sub-Saharan Africa)

So, free weekend. First off, holy crap my potato of a laptop runs it. The graphics scale down for lower end systems. Got to give Blizzard credit for that. It's not as pretty as people on higher end systems see, but it's not super ugly either.

I played the tutorial then fiddled around just long enough to figure out in a skirmish....I have no clue what I'm doing. I suck at FPS games. XD
