How is everyone enjoying the Overwatch Beta so far? I'm loving it! Right now my favorite character has to be Junkrat, because i'm a terrible person. Who's you're favorite character, if you have one?

DiscoKid2942d ago

It's a tie between Mercy and Symmetra. I really love supporting. I say the game is really solid right now; I don't even play FPS games, but I just love this game.

Poli_Games2942d ago

Same! This game has made tanking and healing actually fun! I'm having a blast so far!

Perjoss2942d ago

I've been super excited sine they announced it at Blizzcon 2014 and got to play it for the first time last night and its even better than I expected. Mercy is by far my fav as I've been playing healer types in every game that gives me that option for about 10 years now :)

I hate it glad there was a beta saved me money not my type of game

Ricegum2942d ago

Wouldn't you have realised that by seeing the teasers and trailers etc? It was pretty clear how the game was going to play.

This game is pretty awesome. I had no idea I'd like it so much. Genji??(The Ninja), And the Guy who looks like Erron Black are currently my favorites.

The game's a lot more addicting than I thought it would be, I'm hooked.

Poli_Games2941d ago

Yeah, i've been playing an unhealthy amount! Do you have a favorite character?

Kalebninja2941d ago

Still getting use to everything but right now my main Bastion, I've been dominating with him.

The beta is pretty awesome so far my favorite characters are phara and tracer but I'm willing to try other characters loving it so far.

I hope it's the next big thing, watching the story of overwatch on the gamespot youtube channel, it's refreshing to see that their inspiration for Overwatch was games like Half Life DM, Action Quake, Team Fortress. For me, the fun element seems to have gone from most FPS games nowadays, it's all about stroking that k/d e-peen, for something like Overwatch to come around where it's literally 100% teamwork based, is such a welcomed change, it'll definitely be in my rotation of games that I frequently play that's for sure.

Poli_Games2941d ago

Totally agree with you! There are some characters, like Parah, that make me feel like im playing doom or quake, and then Junkrat makes it feel a bit more like Team Fortress. Ugh this game is so great, why am i here?! Im going back to playing it now! xD
