    Blizzards : Overwatch

    Just wanted to put it out there that im not sure if any of you had a chance to play in the closed beta weekend or are currently part of the closed beta, but share thoughts if so.

    I played the closed beta this weekend just passed, and my expectations were extremely low for this title. I honestly thought it was going to be a steaming pile of sh*t. I simply didnt think blizzard would pull off an FPS, let alone make something to compete with the raft of other FPS games on the market today....let alone it being a "copy" of the style of FPS that TF2 made famous.

    Boy was i wrong.

    Downloaded it at about 7AM on Saturday morning, and played (much to the ire of my wife) till about 4AM that morning. With the occasional threat drop moment from the wife, like making her lunch or something LOL.

    I have not binged a game like that in many years, and i immediately preordered it - it was utterly manic, crazy, hectic and insane but god was it fun.

    Yes, I thoroughly enjoyed it. All the characters feel grand to play, even if I myself was no good at them. The experience was ten fold, if not greater, fun in a group.

    I'm hearing lots of positives from this game. Will definitely be trying out the open beta.

    the game is great, played it first in the stress test weekend and now in early access open beta, been on most of the day and loving it, played both cod and BF so something different is great, competitive play with end up being huge in the game as i have seen today pre-mades are very hard to beat

    Hi guys.

    I lost touch with TOG after I quit WoW many years ago. (I saw my last visit here was 2007, yeesh!).
    With Overwatch hitting open beta, I'm looking for a bunch of friends to play who are not obsessed with their kill/death ratio and more about having fun and work as a team. Am I at the correct place?

    Didn't even look at in the beta but after seeing all the reviews I decided to give it a try. Haven't had this much fun since the Quake 2 CTF's :)

    Although I've not played Overwatch a great deal (less 100 hrs), I am enjoying the game. Brings back memories of TF2. I like the team tactics that are necessary to succeed. Normally pugs drive me crazy with the U jack system but I've been surprised with how the team tactics come naturally with the build of the characters.

    This is very true, blizzard developing such nice and innovative games every year, which makes video game lovers having been increasing craze about video gaming. A few days ago one of my friends had bought Battlefield 1, Overwatch, The division games from popular gaming website like Instant-gaming, and is now craziest fan of playing such nice strategy games. I too enjoyed the game and love playing the beta version of Overwatch, ever since one of my friends bought the CD keys of the Overwatch game from the Official site of Instant-gaming.
