I'm honestly of two minds right now. Part of me is quite excited to see what Blizzard can do with this type of game, sincerely, I am. Blizzard have lots of Cons but they have lots of Pros too and this could either be fucking glorious or an abortion. It really could go either way, and I don't think it can end up being middle-ground/medicore, it's either gonna be a masterpiece or a disaster.

TF2 is one of my favourite games so I don't see any negatives with taking some of it's ideas. Hell, one thing Blizzard do incredibly well (if not THE BEST) compared to other Devs is taking existing ideas and, with some polish and spin, actually making them better. We only have to see some of the ideas they took from previous MMO's into WoW and how they ended up making an incredibly well polished game that - while in no way new or original - FELT new and original.

As far as Overwatch goes? Time, as ever, will tell. I am a bit disappointed that WarCraft's 20 years basically gets glossed over by this. But meh.

Do people seriously expect (or want?) Blizzard to do fully-realistic graphics? It was never going to happen, and likely never will, because Blizzard actually like being able to market their games for a range of PCs instead of Medium/High Tier or above. Plus it gives them a lot more artistic freedom which is clearly something they've always valued, just look at every single game ever from them.

I'm all for legit discussions about possible concerns of things like Balancing, Gameplay direction, the Franchise/Setting itself, but the Graphics? Oh just fucking go away with that nonsense.
Was wondering when someone would create a proper thread for it, good work. (I was going to but then I couldn't be bothered. )

I like Pixar a lot. Things can be entertaining without being gritty. Lots of colors and goofy characters can be charming. Style is more important than realism.

If this is successful it'll be neat to see characters ported over to Heroes of the Storm with largely the same abilities

In these games, performance is everything, and as much as people bash Blizzard I can't think of anyone who polishes their games as much as they do. I really can't see how this game could fail.

Well time will tell, I certainly hope it does well but I'm not going to treat it like a foregone conclusion, factors outside their control could still kill it

People bash everyone. I have been a Blizzard fan for a long time because they impress me more often than not.

Metzen's comments about how Overwatch's story will work are interesting. He said the game will not reflect the lore/story in any way and you'll see a lot of stuff in game that will make absolutely no sense in regards to characterization/continuity they've created, and instead Overwatch's story will be told exclusively through out of game sources. Like TF2 come to think of it.

I remember the last time I was a giant white (superior) gorilla with glasses and mauled chicks with hot thigh gaps and apple bottom asses.

You think so? I don't like bulky melee characters. I like working behind the scenes or in a more supportive role.

Tracer!

Zenyatta looks pretty fucking awesome too

I also like how they managed to put a Dwarf in a game without Dwarves. Thanks Sammy

I'd play the shit out of Reaper, a long with every single other long haired basement troll in the universe.

Probably Tracer for me because I have 200 hours as Scout in TF2 and 5000 kills on "Anus Puncher", my Strange Scattergun.

Do you think they're going to have a single player campaign for this game?
