Looks pretty good, and the people at Blizzcon get to play it all weekend, damn.

tylercolp1533d ago

I know! I'm jealous. Hopefully more gameplay gets out.

Magicite1533d ago

no RPG or strategy elements? pass..

dasbeer881533d ago

Team Fortress 2 mimic and no Warcraft 4.

Blizzard has yet again failed to exceed my expectations.

Sonital1533d ago

I couldn't believe how alike it is to TF2. Only 7 years late to the party...

user55757081533d ago (Edited 1533d ago )

well they had to announce their new game overwatch that will end up in development hell and never get released.

Butters3601533d ago

It's like Blizzard and Insomniac Games had a baby.

A First Person Multiplayer Shooter...another one.

Thought they might of done at least one single player focused game for once maybe in third person. That would of changed things up

OpieWinston1533d ago

Another one?

Diablo... Dungeon Crawler Action RPG
Heroes of the Storm... MOBA
Hearthstone... Card game

Singleplayer focused? They're good at MP games. You clearly aren't a fan of Blizzard or know their strengths.

I wasn't talking about Blizzard making "another one" I was talking about "another" FPS game in the industry.

They all end up feeling the same and in the end people always end up drifting away to the more well known, more established ones out there.

"You clearly aren't a fan of Blizzard"

Oh here we go, somebody using that line trying to make it look like you know arrogant.

I'm just trying to say, why not do something different. You have your MMO games and RTS ones why not do something you haven't tried. It's nice to mix things up.

Next time don't jump to conclusions and be a Mr know it all when replying.

Dudebro901533d ago

Get over it. Who cares if its an fps? If its fun then I'll play it.

Your honestly going to make it out like no one else cares....really?

The game will come out, people will flock to it to try it out, they'll get bored and end up drifting away to the more known FPS games out there they've been playing for years on. Call of Duty, Battlefield, Counter Strike, Team Fortress, Halo etc. It always happens.

Obviously you don't care but that was a little obvious for a guy called "Dudebro"


"At least play it before you shoot it down"

I have played it, it's called Team Fortress 2 I've been playing on it for years.

No your pretty much arrogant for using that really bad crappy line

"Well <scroffs> you obviously haven't played <GAME HERE>" or "you are obviously not a fan of <GAME/STUDIO HERE>"

Makes it look like you know someone so when you use it in your comment you think it makes it look you have insight on someones life as some form of "counter point" against them. Very boring come back in my opinion.

"you don't play competitive games"

At all? Nope didn't think I said that, I just say I don't want games tacking on multiplayer. I'm the kind of guy who wants to preserve some single player games.

" Obviously you don't play any Blizzard games "

Good grief he does it again...

"You proved my point you moron"

Oh here we go the next stage....personal attacks. When the guy/girl know he's loosing an argument and has ran out of things to say he moves to the offensive and goes out with the "devastating" personal attacks.

"I don't need to "Jump to conclusions" I know that you don't play Competitive games from the types of comments you post"

Keep the arrogance up. So I don't play on Team Fortress, Counter strike, Uncharted 2, Last of Us, GTAV online, Halo, Killzone.....GEE, thanks for telling me /s

"Don't try and play the victim when you're just an arrogant douchebag."

Oh dear he's moved in for the double offensive must be struggling

Yeah good day to you Mr know it all.

how can you judge a game because the art style is similar to another game or the possible similar gameplay?

lol, similar gameplay, we didn't even saw it yet!

let's stop the negative thinking right now and let's see it as a possible great game shall we? I prefer positive thinking and well if the games turns out to be generic, well I won't buy it, simple as that.

donthate1533d ago (Edited 1533d ago )

I like that Blizzard is making a shooter. They haven't really made a shooter, and oh I wish they would have resurrected Starcraft: Ghost!

So bummed out cancelled that. Hope this is good, because man it looks good!

Haters gonna hate, but don't let that deter you from enjoying this game!!!

Honestly, I agree that the last genre I want blizzard to attempt is an FPS game but credit where it's due, this one looks like a LOT of fun.

Eldyraen1533d ago

I'd kill for a great singleplayer game from them but other than campaigns in predominately multiplayer titles they don't usually go for it.

I like the look of this though but not sure if it would be a priority by any means. Warcraft 4 is what I really want to see ATM as there is a reason Warcraft is huge and WoW only inflated it. Lore wise they would need to really do something special though as W3 and WoW lore is so far apart at this point but still a ton of possibilities.

"The game will come out, people will flock to it to try it out, they'll get bored and end up drifting away to the more known FPS games out there .."

They will? How do you know this Fox? Blizzard and their community on PC is totally different than what YOU PERSONALLY have (not) experienced with consoles.

Most of their games so far seem to have strong legs. They still have tourny's for StarCraft II, WoW is still going strong, and people still play Warcraft III. So what makes you think that people, especially the PC community will get tired of a Blizzard game?

I love how you constantly speak for "everyone" and then get all upset when EVERYONE comes back and tells you to shut up.

starchild1533d ago

He does that constantly. He's so negative about almost everything, I sometimes wonder if he even enjoys gaming at all. He makes it sound like his extremist ideas are just facts that everyone agrees with.

Valve makes Dota 2 and Blizzard makes Team Fortress 3?

Looks awesome =D

Eldyraen1533d ago

Sort of but with even more MOBA-like heroes to choose from.

Ridiculous characters to choose from, team based gameplay, and solid mechanics (assuming they're solid and balanced) could make for a fun time. Team Fortess or even Shadow Run came to mind since it is pretty quirky but it could be fun.
