News Comments > Overwatch Widowmaker Cinematic

They sure have a lot of lore for the game. I wonder if the videos were done/mostly done while it was still Titan. I think that's one area that makes me sad. So much lore, but we'll never see it in the game itself. I don't recall there being a restriction on characters that you can pick, so I believe a Tracer and Widowmaker could play together. Seems wrong now.

And Tracer is overused in the marketing material, IMO. Show us some other characters.

On reddit people say the Rift still works when blocked by a firewall. Someone did a packet analysis and found it to only be doing version checking every 30 seconds, at least for now.

Here's the image of it. It's doing version checking on the packages. Not worried yet, but I'm glad people are sniffing the packets.

What's Master Chief doing here?

Had the same exact thought. Of course, Doom Guy came first, but yeah.. looks similar. Guy with helmet.

Fuck yeah. Hoping to get my Rift later this week or next at latest. Looking forward to the day when we have 8K(ish) displays and the systems to go with them that can push these graphics.

Nice to see a peaceful, fun game like Stardew Valley taking the #2 spot showing that not every video game needs to have violence to be successful.

But it does actually contain violence

I've killed so, so many slimes. I need to build my slime press now. Or whatever it does.

I wonder how they get so many bugs in that video. I've seen some of them, like the sliding soldiers, but they seem to have a whole lot of clipping issues and holes in the levels.

I'm sure he has his reasons, it's not just "because".

Because he hates money. Why else run this site for so long? /s Or maybe he farms salt from us. He'd be a millionaire by now.

I use an ad blocker on Blues. I'm sorry. I just don't trust ads. Occasionally I look around for a way to donate money instead, but I can't see one. Hey Blue, put up a PayPal link. I want to give you money.

He'll probably immediately complain that the first games aren't anything more than something you play for 15 minutes and you're done.

This will be the big issue for me. I'm a huge VR enthusiast and have both the Rift and Vive coming, but I do worry about the game selection. Are they going to be real games or just small bits of entertainment? Elite Dangerous was a full game that I had several hours (around 15 - 20) of fun with in VR (so much so that I can't play it without my display), but that was it. The others were interesting but not enough to make me hook everything up. Here's hoping that changes now that we're finally live.

Yummy. Since you're packing around a PC and power supply on your head, I have to wonder about weight with this one. Looking forward to reviews though.

Apple also didn't give China anything remotely similar to what the US government is asking for.

Don't worry, after a few news media cycles, what they did for China will be a hundred times worse bordering on treason.

Hope they don't grow too fast. That seems to kill a lot of developers when they expand their team too quickly.

On one hand, good for Massive - on the other hand they'll probably want to push this out as a yearly title. I don't know if that'll work out for them.

It's a (somewhat) MMO, so yearly expansions. More than yearly, I believe. They have three listed already. Hopefully they come up with some new enemies. And someone that isn't named Alex.

I'm really enjoying it as well. However, at level 7, I'm still using the starter weapons (although modded). I can't seem to find anything that increases the DPS over them. I should probably head to the DZ, but dammit, I want to improve the base! I suppose I could .. *gasp* .. buy a weapon from the vendor instead of waiting until one drops.

Now if I only had more time to play.

It all sounds so exciting until you realize the VR experience is mostly an exercise in how long you can stand having a hot, heavy headset strapped to your head.

DK1 and 2 don't feel heavy to me. Can't say whether Vive is, but since it weighs about the same, I'm not expecting it to. I only wore it for a couple hours though with most sessions around an hour.

Does fuck up my eyes for a few minutes after taking it off though. Feels weird after removing it.

The Half Elf wrote on Mar 8, 2016, 14:11:
Story wise it goes like this (someone places small pox on money and then with the Black Friday sales (especially in someone as populated in New York, especially with cabs, trains, subways, buses) it spread like wildfire.

So one thing I wasn't clear on, is this ONLY happening in New York/Brooklyn? Rest of the world is a-ok? They didn't make that very clear, but that's the impression I got. Doesn't make sense, though, if that's the case. That'd mean the rest of the US gave up on Manhattan and just left it to this small Division group instead of an army. Actually, I recall seeing other dots on the intro map in other cities. Now I'm unsure.

Wish there were more explosions. Looks great though. Hoping to play a bit more tonight since the servers couldn't handle it last night.

Alarm bells should be going for anyone pre-ordering The Division ... no proper reviews prior to launch ... Oo

Why do I need reviews when I played the beta and enjoyed it? I think I got a good 10 - 15 hours out of the beta, so no worries here about what to expect.

The ghosts look really good. That's about it. Is this a remake or something? From the trailer, the storyline looks exactly the same.

I don't even have this setting. I'm set to show the default picture, though, and it never changes. So I must not have the spotlight thing going.
