I have never played Team Fortress before so I don't know what to expect. I hope I can get into the alpha.

I like the art style of this game. Ive never tried Team Fortress 2 so that'll be new to me.

I am mostly glad Blizzard decided do a game that isn't in one of their main IPs. Here's hoping Overwatch becomes their fourth main franchise.

As for the lore, i'm curious how they'll do it. More cinematics? Comic books?

And here's hoping it won't be micro-transaction. I'd much rather just buy the game and have everything. Then expansions with characters and maps realeased the year after and stuff like that.

I agree. Pixar has in the past demonstrated a capability to tap into depth while still retaining a kiddish charm.

Do I think modern Blizzard has this capability? Do YOU?

Yes, when not held back by game mechanics.

Intriguing. I'm of the mind that the game mechanics have been the saving grace of Blizzard gaming for like 5 or 6 years now.

They have, but that doesn't mean the game mechanics haven't held back their story telling.

Well, Overwatch passed the "porn test" with flying colors. There are almost 10 pictures of porn on Rule 34 already, and it hasn't even been 12 hours! You can always tell how popular something will be by how quickly the porn appears, it's like magic!

Having now read through all the announced character bios; Overwatch has a really neat sounding setting. There's a monastery of Buddhist robots in Nepal! A group of super-intelligent, human-hating gorillas have a colony on the moon. I just hope the "ongoing story told entirely out of game" can work. Maybe they'll do what everyone's been begging TF2 to do and make an ongoing machinima series?

I have a feeling Tracer is going to join Wheatley and the Lutece twins as one of my favorite videogame characters. There's just something I can't resist about British accents.

I agree that the setting has huge potential which I guess is one of the reasons I'm bummed the game isn't going to be a vehicle for it. Shame they couldn't get it to work for a PvE setting.

I suppose its a good thing though that they managed to salvage something from Titan's development. Really, its not that surprising that the game is this far along when you consider Titan has been under development for years so many of the core systems were probably already built.

Hey, Fatnaros is in the background. Woo.

I'm thrilled about Overwatch. I want to cream all over the beta. I want it now.

I'm fucking pissed about the movie thing though.

Pretty much if I picked anyone here to be Tracer it would totally be the Nazja. We need to do an Avatar thing with the characters from Overwatch!
