Overwatch - [MT]

Overwatch. Blizzard's first brand new IP since Starcraft was released in March of 1998. The title debuted at the 2014 Blizzcon in Anaheim California. Originally conceived as an MMO, the project was reset in 2013. The game will mark Blizzard's first released FPS and is drastically different from their other IPs. It will be the first earth centric title and takes a more "colorful" art direction with similarities to Pixar films. There is also a clear indication that Blizzard is prepared to create strong female characters among more diverse heroes. Of the twelve initially released heroes, five of them were female with Tracer becoming an instant icon as the game's main protagonist. 

 

 

 

The game has taken criticism already, being dubbed as a vertical Team Fortress 2. Jeff Kaplan (the game's director) addressed this, saying, "There's some similarities .... but we're going in a different design direction then they are". He goes on to say, "All of us have been conditioned from recent shooters that are out ... Overwatch is about these amazing hero abilities. It's not about running around and putting people under your crossheirs." Reports from those who have played this game at the 2014 Blizzcon have suggested a close tie-in with TF2, but we have only seen the beginning of this project. It wouldn't be the first time Blizzard has taken and improved upon someone else's genre...


World of Warcraft: The MMO of the future!

Looks like Mike and Chris weren't kidding, we ain't getting a new MMO from Blizz for a long, long time. 

 
 
I have come into acceptance of this fact and will be jumping into WoD with my boosted 90! I know the boosts are not looked at favorably by all people, but it allows people like me to get in on an even playing field.

I was sold on TW3 before this gameplay trailer, but you should really check it out if you are unsure about this game. I haven't been this excited for a non-MMO since fallout 3.
