Overwatch! It’s out tomorrow, bringing a little hero-on-hero action (and not the sort you see all over the internet with Rule 34 applied). Last week, we told you that some of you might be joining us at the launch of the game in Johannesburg.

The evil robot overlords at Random.org have drawn, and the folk who’re invited to join us at the launch are:

OwatchLaunch

Kromas, Hendrik and Seamus01. You’re all invited to join us at the Overwatch launch in Bryanston tomorrow – as are your plus ones. We’ll be sending along details of the wheres, the the whens and the whats soon – so keep your eyes on your inboxes.

        I’d ask, not grovel.

        But it might be best that I don’t go… it’ll make me want to spend money I don’t have 😛

        You mean, you’d dress up all fancy like in an evening gown and all? I contemplated it, but for the sake of other decided against it…no one wants to see a lamppost covered in a layer of cotton, or innuendos…

    I have this slight suspicion that number 4 was cut out with rather specific intent, maybe to shield the number 7 spot?

    Anyway, Gratz guys!! Hope you have fun at the event!!

    I’m not sure why but this game doesn’t grab me at all. I have 0% hype for it. I am actually keen to see how many will still be playing this in a month and a half’s time?! I don’t think there will be many… Maybe I am just cynical???

            May 23, 2016 at 12:56

            I spent around 60 to 70 hours in the DZ, which, I think, is quite a feat with only one character, I killed 3 rogues, yes, 3, I lost count of how many times I were killed by those A%##$!$*& hacking Scum with their one shot^#*!&^#^( attacks after 25….

            May 23, 2016 at 13:01

            I missed two weeks of The Division. I suppose I am way behind now. Tonight, Maybe. If I finish Doom.

        It feels like a shinier Evolve. What will you do when you have played 50 matches?! You will stop playing and move on. I don’t see how this game will be a thing for long.

      I was skeptical at first aswell, but after playing the beta and you know, it being Blizzard and all, im pretty sure theyll make it last.
      I mean, i thought diablo 3 was terriboring, but they somehow managed to keep that going for like, ever.
