The game is a lot of fun. I'll play several matches each night. I still kinda suck, but I have improved. The balance is fairly good, with only a few tweaks needed most likely. It'll be interesting to see what kind of longevity it has.

The guy really shouldn't have to stutter and apologize his way through announcing a delay. That kind of news should be greeted with thunderous applause from the gaming community.

Instead the man receives death threats.. Way to be gamers! Stay classy..

It's the Internet. You get death threats when you draw attention to yourself for any reason.

Somehow I feel like I'll be able to watch some youtube videos and feel as if i've experienced all the game has to offer.

Already uninstalled this. Nothing they've done has inspired me to come back to it. Still a shitfest.

I've been having a blast with Doom SP campaign. I think I have 3 missions left to finish it. I'll probably start over on a harder setting after that. Might try some multiplayer, but I think Overwatch is going to be my main multiplayer game for the foreseeable future.

It's really not just a bunch of areas that lock you in until you clear them. There are areas like that in each mission, but the missions are not just a series of rooms like that. Also, those lock-down areas are good-sized areas and I've found those fights to be pretty fun. There are certainly more than 6 monsters at a time too, unless maybe you're playing on the easiest setting or something. Finding all the secrets is pretty fun too.

The game is fantastic, and deserves the top spot right now.

This game has some rough edges and is clearly the darling of a smaller studio. It could be a fantastic game or it could end up basically Alpha Protocal'ing all over the place. Time will tell. We certainly are having a landmark year for games if the spring has anything to say about it. Would be nice if that trend continues with a deep action RPG.

Alpha Protocol was a good game! I played through it 3 times in a row. It definitely had some rough spots, but overall it was a lot of fun.

What I want to see is more of the story about the 1st wave of The Division (the player is part of the second wave) and more of the story about how it all went down, and the rogue agents.

Yeah, they really screwed up by not doing more with the story, and they've pretty much wasted most of what they created by not doing any sort of endgame that utilizes the city outside of the DZ. They really didn't think this thing through.

So is this thing dead yet or what?
The co-workers that talked me into getting this have all quit now. The game is shit once you've played through the PvE and have to start grinding. This update doesn't sound like it's going to do anything to fix any of the many many problems the game has.

Comes out the same day as Overwatch too, which is what everyone I know will be playing that day rather than this

Having a blast so far. I'm just getting into the 3rd major area now, so not that far into it yet. I'm definitely rusty, and have died a few times, but getting better. Haven't played a shooter like this in a while

Now I'm just looking forward to getting the other weapons! I can see replaying this on a harder difficulty and trying to get all the challenges and secrets. I've missed some already.

TF2 players don't want to call it TF3 because they think they're superior

It absolutely is not TF3. In many ways, TF2 became TF3.

Overwatch really doesn't have a lot to distinguish itself; sure, there are a bunch of heroes, but they are all very one dimensional. It's a fun game and well made, but unless they add some serious content post release I don't see it having remotely the staying power of previous more popular shooters. The two game modes are terribly boring (especially KOTH, which I've NEVER enjoyed going all the way back to UT) and the maps pretty uninspired.

To each his own. I had a blast with it, and the game modes are fun. I'm sure they'll be adding more over time too.

There was all sorts of crazy shit in the mod community if you ever played anything besides bog standard games you'd know that. You come off as another retard.

Then prove it. Name some multiplayer FPS mods from the 90s that had melee tanks with AOE shields, Pudge hooks, time rewinds, ultimates etc. Do it. You can't cuz you're full of shit.

I don't need to prove shit when there is google dumbass. There's this thing called moddb. You simply google 'quake mods' and you'll find all sorts of interesting shit. I'm not going to do homework for historically illiterate shit for brains like you.

Looks like he was right. You can't name one that had those things. Laugh2

But more seriously, Overwatch is a huge letdown for me...two or three game modes is totally lame...all ripped from year 2008 TF2. It's just not acceptable to come out with a TF2 knock-off some eight years later and expect me to pay nearly full price.

Where's my SP or Coop campaign? Where's the innovative game modes? I won't apologize for demanding innovation and substance, especially from a company like Blizzard.

Balancing a game like this is extremely hard. I'm glad they're starting with something manageable. I'm sure they'll be adding more over time. This is more than enough to start with. A bunch of maps and the existing modes are fun. Balance seems pretty good so far.

I've been having fun with it. Definitely similar to TF2, but more variety in the characters and abilities. Pretty sure I'm picking this one up. Maybe it'll help get the sour taste of The Division out of my mouth. Damn co-worker talked me into getting that one...

Edit: hmm... I don't see the deal on it at GMG either
Got it in one of their emails: overwatch-origins-edition , and then use 20OFF * at checkout. Don't know if it works since I can't even add to basket due to the aforementioned region restriction (or if the asterisk was just a footnote or actually part of the campaign code.)

Apparently its restricted in the US too. I just get the "not available in your region" message.
Yup US only.
Cdkeys have the Origins edition for $45

But I AM in the US. Not sure why I'm getting the restricted message.

I've been playing since yesterday, and can agree that this is very much like TF2, although a bit faster. There's definitely more variety in the characters and their abilities though. I think it's too early to tell how good the maps are, but so far I don't have an issue with them. Some are pretty good, and they all look very nice.

I've only played about 5 characters for more than one match so far. I'm trying to play around with more, and maybe pick one or two of each class to focus on for now.

Anyone know if it's possible to change the difficulty of the bots in the humans vs. A.I. training matches?

Edit: hmm... I don't see the deal on it at GMG either
