Overwatch is fun in short bursts, but like bubblegum the lack of progression and complexity leaves me sated after a few matches.

You're using the word "sated" wrong.
Just trying to be helpful. I normally wouldn't point out something like this but you've got it completely opposite there and if you're doing this often that could be really confusing for the reader

Actually I used it correctly. After a few matches of Overwatch I am sated, meaning that I am full and satisfied and no longer have any desire to play the game. Like chewing bubble gum, it was fun for a few minutes but then I have my fill and spit it out. Another way of saying it is that Overwatch imo is a bit simplistic so it is easier to get everything I want out of it and I have no real desire for more.

Ah I get you now. It's not often that someone talks about the lack of something and then follows that up with feeling sated.

Kind of like saying something is well-rounded and multifaceted. It technically works, but the individual terms contradict each other.

So in that breath, I give OW some slack that they just launched today, but come on, 20 tic for a "pro e-sports hyper-competitive" 6v6 FPS game is a slap in the face.

It's been discussed, no idea if it's valid, that custom games use 60 tic. The thing is.. it does not feel like 20 to me. They may be doing something else with prediction to make it play better. <shrug>

You've obviously never experienced the power of their crappy server prediction and "Favor the Shooter" mindset. Have you played and been shot around a corner by a sniper like Hanzo or Widowmaker or by Bastion in turret mode? Watched the KillCam after? On YOUR client, you got out of the way. On THEIR client, you were standing out in the open and boom.

This stuff happens less on games that update the server and clients more often about where people are and what they are doing. 20 tick is Blizzard cheaping out on network traffic to save money at the expense of gameplay experience for their customers.

Hanzo just feels like a huntsman to me. The arrow hit box is like the size of a toaster oven or something. Crappy prediction is BF 1942, etc., that feels diferent.

I'm not...

Me neither. Waiting to hear feedback from PC gamers about the maychmsking. Smooth or is it laggy like other games that forgo sever browsers for peer to peer lovin

Gameplay is smooth, no noticeable glitches or anything. Some people have claimed the tick rate from the server is low, but I personally have a hard time seeing that in the game. The engine is lightening fast. Matchmaking is client/server, no p2p.

The game is a breath of fresh air on the team shooter genre. TF2 has turned into a laggy mess of code, the only thing Valve supports in that game is the revenue stream from cosmetics, the recent match making was a joke. The Battlefield series has become biannual EA shovelware. Overwatch is under pretty tight control, no CTF, no modded servers, etc., but I think it helps focus the game at the moment. Time will tell if it ages well, at least Blizzard has committed to it.

It's a fast game to get into but difficult to dominate in due to it's Rock/Paper/Scissor setup. We had a match last night where our team was just getting decimated as we were trying to defend. Someone swapped to Bastion and completely cut off access to one side of the map. It allowed the rest of us to actually set up a defense. It completely shifted the game play of the other team. We went back and forth like that a couple times, it was a blast.

I'm not sure why but I still have the option to play the game even though I never bought it. Also, I thought there weren't going to be any microtransactions or was that strictly in regards to heroes and maps?

Microtransactions are for loot boxes only I believe. All upcoming heros and maps will be available to everyone.

I'm sure there is more to it but it seems a little ridiculous that the Vive and Oculus require separate development to the point where games which support one or the other are locked down. It's not like it's a graphics card, processor or API but rather an external device which functions as a fancy monitor with bulky hardware requirements.

Shouldn't there be some kind of VR standard to follow instead of pushing VR in to the market in one hand while locking down and splitting the market in the other?

Do you really think Facebook would want anything to do with open standards? Walled garden or GTFO.

I still have to get back into the original. I got to the point where they added the "record yourself and play it back" mechanic, did a couple of the puzzles and kind of faded out playing it. Not too fond of that puzzle mechanic, but overall the game was enjoyable enough to drudge through one mechanic that I didn't like.

I searched Youtube for the last few solutions just so I could finish the game. The game was just not enjoyable towards the end.

I'm glad they decided to sell this game as a premium, instead of freemium. Makes me more likely to get it since premium usually infers less grinding annoyance and more quality and I get everything (a whole game) at once.

And no hoovie/conga line bullshit.

If you're overclocking but don't want to spend too much time on it, it is easier to search overclock.net for your MB + stable overclocks. I did this with my i7-920 and I hit 4GHz with relative ease. Just something like this in google should dig up some good info.

asus sabertooth z77 stable overclock site:overclock.net

Just to reinforce what others have said.. the voltages are key component everything else is built on with a good overclock.

<sigh> The writing is on the wall for my antique 780GTX. It handled Wolfenstein perfectly well, but it completely chokes on Doom (Confirmed by the TechSpot link). Looking forward to the 1080 release next week.


Chokes? play on medium and problem solved, still looks great, avg 47 on my 670GTX, game runs actually very well on older cards assuming you got an SSD with 50gb to spare which for this game is absolutely mandatory.

Isn't steady 144 fps or whatever, but it's playable and most importantly, stable fps...

It's the 1440 that kills it for me, even on medium settings. The best improvement I've had is by changing the resolution slider to 75%. It's playable, just muddy looking.

I really need to keep an ear out for Widowmaker's ultimate pop, and just hold back until it's finished.

It's apparently intentionally quieter than most of them, and you will not hear it if you are not within a certain range of her.

You do see it on the replay though, so a team with good communication should be able to relay it pretty quickly.

Though since competitive was off during the open beta I'm not sure if kill cams are on during that too.

I'm pretty sure kill cams are on for competitive from what I've read.

Her hostile line is Personne n'échappe à mon regard. (friendly line: No one can hide from my sight)

I don't think I've ever heard her hostile ultimate line, which would make more sense based on Blue's comment.

Maining Zenyatta, Widowmaker is pretty much my nemesis. I've seen so many damn replays where she ignores my teammates and goes for me. Super frustrating but understandable. If she doesn't have her wallhacks on and I'm familiar with where she's at I can lay down some suppressing fire and get her to go away. But most of my team tend to ignore her way off in the distance like she is, they have more pressing concerns a few feet in front of them.

Her ultimate is far worse for me, but that's kinda the point of ultimates. I tended more toward flanking characters at the end, which really changes up the game in a lot of ways. Widowmaker isn't a problem when she doesn't see you coming.

"The only permitted hacks are those already built in, like seeing through walls."

I had 2-3 distinct moments toward the end of the Beta where I was sure someone was cheating.. only to be shown the replay where I was highlighted in red to everyone on the enemy team.

I really need to keep an ear out for Widowmaker's ultimate pop, and just hold back until it's finished.

Looking at Google's OS distribution numbers is a fun walk down memory lane, but it is also a damning indictment of the company's hardware partners.

That's pretty funny considering Google itself doesn't update it's own Nexus phones over 1.5 years old.

Android = Never again.
