God, I love this game. Last night I teamed up with some randoms that ended up being the best team I've played with so far. We were also matched against an amazingly competitive team  both sides had a perfect balance of heroes. I made some of the best plays I've made in the game, and each round was insanely challenging but hugely rewarding. I think we played about 10-12 matches in a row.

I have a date tonight, but I secretly can't wait to get home to play more :(

I'm on PS4. I assume you're on PC?

Aww. Yeah, I wouldn't even dream of playing a competitive FPS on a console.

It's so good! I've written an article about my initial prejudice and how the game won me over, which should go up shortly. Hope we can play with you guys at some point!

I've got Xessive, but not Pugnate! Add me, foo!

So I wrote an article about my experience with both hating and loving Overwatch. It's not really a review so much as an examination of what it was that turned me off so hard, and what it was that managed to turn it all back around again. It's been a ... weird experience, but one that I'm not likely to forget in the future when I find myself being overly prejudiced again.

A Prejudicial Approach to Overwatch

Also, if you look closely, our very own Pyromenace and gpw11 are hiding away in the screenshots.

I'm amazed at how responsive the controls are for Overwatch on the PS4. I also have Kontrol Freek joystick caps on, that definitely helps.

My new fav is Tracer. I was so turned off by her design and finally gave her go. Amazing fun.

Tracer is awesome. She's a little harder to use effectively than most characters, but it's so satisfying when you do. I didn't like her design at first, but she grew on me. They gave her a fun personality.

Just got this Junkrat skin, and got play of the game with him on the same match. Here's the video:

I'm so confused by what is going on there. I first assumed it's a really old build of Overwatch but most of the comments are talking about it being a knock off with stolen assets... but youtube comments can be so unbelievably stupid that I have no idea.

It's a Chinese knock-off of Overwatch.

But the word is "...it turns out that it's not actually a game that's for sale, or so the developer claims. According to this Reddit translation, the developer made it as a tech demo, and has no plans to publish it."

Haha, that's a trip. If that's a tech demo, it looks awful. But yeah, China is rotten with bootleg shit. You see this sort of thing almost constantly.

New stuff coming! Talks about some updates to various modes and systems, and confirms that there are new heroes in the pipe and new maps this year (I should damn well hope so!).

Still enjoying this game frequently. Play at least a few games every couple days, and usually once I start, I end up playing for at least an hour.

Haha, that was great. I didn't actually see you get it because I was too busy trying to bump dudes off the cart. I had a weirdly high amount of objective time on that match.

I don't watch Game of Thrones, your pop culture references are lost on me.

That said, holy shit has the potg thing become a popular meme.

Also, I swear this was posted here but I guess it wasn't? I felt like X posted it. Either way, it needs to be posted, especially since it's the best of these I have yet seen:

I'm not sure why, but I haven't read the books either. Just nothing anyone's said about it has ever made me want to read it, even though I'm curious. Someday I'm sure I'll grab the first one and give it a whirl at least.

Funnily enough my first encounter with a Song of Ice & Fire was in a mod for Neverwinter Nights when I was in Canada (I think it was around 2005 or 2006).

Anyone still playing? Me and gpw are on almost every night, and we do pretty okay most of the time. It would be lots of fun to get a team together!

Hell yeah! Even though I haven't been ranking up since I only play an average of a round a day.

We usually play in the evenings, like in maybe a 7-12 Pacific time window. And we've been playing randomly on weekends.

I love my new computer. Love playing at 2K. There is a weird problem though. All the characters are skipping frames. It is such a strange issue. I checked and a lot of people are having it!

gpw and I play almost exclusively competitive, but I have no problem going QP. Just no real reason to do so unless I'm grouping with someone I can't play competitive with (we tried with X once, and it complained about our levels being too different).

I'm usually asleep by midnight, though I'll often stay up until 1 on Tuesday and Thursday nights, and I'm usually up later on weekends.

I'm pretty sure you're on PST with me.   Pug is on EST we're looking at around 9 our time, which could work out pretty well.
