    Default Overwatch

    A new IP from Blizzard, the first one in 17 years. I really admire the personality and passion this brings to the table.
    This game was just announced today at BlizzCon

    I can't watch the videos right now but the site's descriptions make it sound like TF2 with more complex MOBA-inspired abilities. Potentially great.

    Character designs are cheesy as hell, though. The Reaper looks more like something from 1994 than 2014.

    They won't make Starcraft Ghost but they'll give us this.

    Starcraft Ghost was meant to be a single player console game - then Blizzard was bought by Activision who politely reminded Blizzard that they don't make single player games anymore they make franchises that are esport multiplayer with a regular income structure.

    This game looks fun - but I just get the feeling Blizzard has lost some of its soul the games feel and look like people who want to make things more fun but have a weight dragging them down requiring them to ensure what they make is able to produce income.

    Hearthstone from all accounts is an anomoly since it was made by a small team and then given massive backing once they found they could sell card packs

    I feel this game shows a lot of promise, also its not too violent that my lil ones can pick up n play. After watching the trailer it reminded them of the Incredibles, I see a good appeal for this if marketed right, and if of course the gameplay is approachable and fun.

    Blood and headshots aren't violent? dont confuse the artstyle with it not being violent, I dont get why people seeing the kids at the museum makes them say its a game suitable for kids...Anyway I saw it live at blizzcon love the artstyle and gameplay seems fun, Im not much of an FPS player(used to play a lot Unreal Tournament years ago) but when they are a little different I can enjoy them, like TF and this kinda reminds me of that but looks more polished and I like the art more, looking forward to it hope its a success.

    I certainly wasn't expecting this to come out of Blizzcon.

    Signed myself up for the beta, and really hoping I get in at some point... because this looks awesome.

    There is no proof of anything that you said. Even in beta Blizzard explained that they would be selling card packs for Hearthstone and the development team is nowhere near MASSIVE. You have absolutely no idea what kind of impact Activision has had on Blizzard outside of whatever conspiracy you and the rest of the internet have come up with in your mind.

    Anyway this looks great. I love TF2 and i love MOBAs. I can't wait to play it.

    I know from past experiences that I'm not going to actually play this game, but I really dig the character designs and overall aesthetics.

    I wish the west could push out fighting games with this kind of style.

    Granted most of what I said was tongue in cheek.

    But you know what - it doesn't matter in the end what any of us think - WOW's numbers are declining which is to be expected after this long - They're expanding heavily into the micro-transaction area of gaming and haven't made a pure solo play game in decades. A lot of the core team - or members who were part of the explosion of WOW's popularity have departed to focus their efforts elsewhere.

    Not really. WoW's subs are still staying 7-9 million (Higher at the start of a expansion), granted there was a time when they had over 12 million, but they are still two or three times as big as other mmo's. That's insanely good for any game let alone a sub based one.
