    Normally I'm not all that interested in multiplayer shooter games, but I tried Overwatch during that last beta and I had a ridiculous amount of fun with it. At first I tried to play all the "cool" heroes like Hanzo, Reaper, McCree, Tracer, etc., but I quickly learned that I kinda sucked at all of them. So I spent some time focusing on just defensive/tank characters and enjoyed myself a lot more. By the end of the beta my favorite characters were Genji, Lucio, Torbjorn, and Reinhardt.

    I may have just won a game with a pure Mei team makeup. It was glorious.

    An all-Mei team sounds like the stuff of nightmares. I'm going to assume the other team died of salt poisoning.

    Probably!

    It was the tavern brawl this week, which meant double health, lower cooldowns, and faster ults. That meant we could instantly replace our ice walls as soon as they were down, ice block was on a four second cooldown, and we could reliably Blizzard spam. :shifty:

    Pretty much exactly what it was, except with a nerdy Chinese scientist and her adorable little droid. :lol:

    Overwatch's trailers and animated shorts are awesome. Which ones are your favorite?
    Mine are the cinematic trailer with Winston & Tracer and Dragons with Hanzo & Genji.

    Cinematic Trailer


    Recall


    Alive


    Dragons


    Hero


    BTW, I love both Battleborn and Overwatch. Both are extremely fun. Oscar Mike is hilarious.

    Dragons is definitely my favorite of the shorts, though I suppose that's not much of a surprise considering my current avatar.

    I read on the wiki that in the Dragons short, at 2 minutes, the katana belonged to Hanzo. I assume it was previously belonged to his father, passed down to Hanzo after he died, and the blood stain (after showing the sword) is where Hanzo "killed" Genji. Hanzo stopped using his katana after that fight, and focused on his bow skills.

    My friends, family, and myself thinks Overwatch will make a really good movie or TV series.

    They came up with a pretty cool lore for the game, it's just a shame they aren't really doing anything with it in the game itself.
