Battleborn or Overwatch: which MOBA/FPS hybrid should you pick up this month?
Whichever is easier to pick up and play..?
I chose Overwatch.
Yeah, Overwatch has an easier concept.. FPS and Objectives.. I'd go with Overwatch too, plus I prefer the artstyle..
They lost me at roller blade guy. @Free_Fro yes the art concept is very different. After the opening scene below BB really painted a different picture. (The bombs start droppin @ 1:24) https://youtu.be/4N5XQI8EDD... The OW story trailers... https://youtu.be/z3biFxZIJO... I kid I kid
Can you use twin sticks? They should both pickup easily. Battleborn!!! though. Very different and awesome. Also you actually can modify your battleborns skills and stats in and out of game to your liking. You do get to roll your eyes at every other shooter without backing up your argument if you choose OW:o
Neither. I'm getting Doom.
I am loving Overwatch at the moment. I played the beta for Battleborn, couldn't get into it.
Overwatch by a long shot. Most fun I've had with a shooter in a long time.
Battleborn... for the same reasons. And I dont like how Blizzard force feeds you their games... Harthstone. I hope it dosnt become pay to win. Both games are good i hope they both last. I truely belive BB is somthing different, less twitch more push.
If you like MOBAs, play Battleborn. If you like team-based shooters, play Overwatch. Two totally different genres; why these two games continue to be compared is beyond me. It's like comparing Smite to Team Fortress 2.
Agree and disagree... Different games yes. But I hated MOBAs and I love BB. I would say try the games and see for yourself they gave you open betas after all. BB dose not play like any other MOBA.
I never actually beat Borderlands 2(nor did I play any dlc), and never touched the Pre Sequel, so my buddy and I got the Handsome Collection. I have zero interest in these games releasing, but I hope the people who are interested enjoy it.
Battleborn is actually pretty good it turns out. I hated the beta.
Overwatch is a blast. Been following this game since it was tracer screenshots and a lot of ideas. It has really turned into a game with so much variety and fun. Played the Alphas and earlier beta on pc and now I'm playing on PS4. Such a phenomenal game with new characters and maps coming all for free. Battleborn was boring in alpha but got a lot more fun in beta. For me it simply pales in comparison to overwatch on every level.
so far battleborn has been great. But only 2! maps for incursion? WTH??? If they expect me to buy DLC for more maps, Fucck that man.
