Watch us get properly schooled in Overwatch

On the surface, Blizzard’s next big franchise looks like a colourful shooter. It’s got an entire rainbow of colours to play with, big guns and even bigger personalities. Overwatch is more than just that though, according to the folks who have been kicking around in the closed beta for several months now. It’s also a team-based shooter, one that requires a balanced squad of players who aren’t all just picking one character to attempt to conquer a level with.

Naturally, we decided to get someone who was a master of co-operating well with others, could actually aim a gun and knew exactly when to activate skills in battle. Said person was unavailable and told us to go suck a lemon, so you’re stuck with me instead. The El Nino of game streams, which is Mexican for “The Nino”. Here’s me getting properly slaughtered in Overwatch, and having a rad time watching killcams of my many, many mistakes in action.

If you’re keen on playing the beta this week, here’s a lengthy primer that I wrote on it. If you’re eligible, just remember that the download will cost you 8.8 gigglebytes of data on your bandwidth. And be gentle with me please. I’m terrible at everything in life, especially video games. I just want to be the best Winston that I can be! Is that so much to ask for?

      I was also saying the same for all the CoD games but people pay money for entertainment.

        Well, to be fair you get a quick SP campaign and sometimes a zombie mode or something as well.

      It’s actually 40$ for the non origins version, or is that still too expensive for you ? 😉

        So what’s the difference between the origins version?

          Its just a bunch of overwatch skins, a pet in wow, the tracer hero in HOTS, cross game marketing fluff.

            $40 is a lot more reasonable then, seeing as how I don’t play Wow and how all characters can be unlocked in HOTS by just playing the game

            Yea its not bad, still set me back R700 for a 40 euro game! I wasn’t sure if I paid dollars it would lock me to the US servers or not, cause then it would only be 590

    Anyone played this yet on PC? How noticeable is the 180ms latency?
