Overwatch Reviews

May 25, 2016

Ha!  And they say you need a campaign to get good reviews!

And the sound is so important in this game.  It tells you so much about the state of the game.  (EDIT: Atmos isn’t yet available on the One because the codec isn’t available there yet. – that doesn’t change the voice info that tells you who joined and what each character is doing.)

OT And they with crossplay, they broke RL.  Have 4 of 12 servers selected, over 700 playing, and can’t find a match.  lol

    Not surprising in the least. Nothing but positive reactions from what I have heard pre/post beta. Can’t wait to jump in eventually.

    For RL, Have u tried switching the cross play feature on or off? May only be one broke.

    Dammit, I was just coming here to bitch about Rocket League cross network play. Decided to play a couple of matches on my lunch break. It would find a server, reserve a spot on it, but some PC Elitist jackass already on the server refuses to play with us console peasants, and then I would go back to searching, searching, searching.

      Does it indicate whether or not the player is via PC or console?

      It has to be a PC player, because it prevented my Xbox One from joining the server. I took screenshots: “Cross-network play is not permitted for some players on this server.” If it were XO players, I still would’ve been able to join.

      Wow, yeah that is really strange design choice. They should create separating matchmaking pools. xbone/steam/cross-plat opted in.

      Also, they are doing lots of maintenance, June update is around the corner and there are new maps coming with it!

      I’m not going to panic. I have more game on my plate right now than I have time for. I can wait until they figure it out. Whew! Overwatch came out not a minute too early!

      Not that this is indicative of anything, but the official reddit page, no signs of matchmaking complaints (beyond a single PS4 issue). It looks like on average player base has more than tripled, lots of PC elitists trolling console noobs. I can’t wait to shut some of them up :p.

      It isn’t indicative of anything. Console gamers posting anything get stomped on pretty hard in reddit. I don’t bother to complain there because the PC elitists would either say “buy a PC” or “GTFO”. They are worse than Sony fanbois. Ironic that when they finally have a chance to put their skills where their mouth is, they opt to shut console gamers out. I’ve never been excited about combining the communities.

      Good luck finding a game. And if you are able, let us know what hoops we have to jump through to make it work.

      Thanks for the heads up on that. “Unfiltered” looks like an interesting idea for a show!

      Here is the full interview (haven’t watched it and don’t know if I will – not really interested in this particular participant anymore).

      And here is the playlist – several shows about Xbox and one with Marty from Halo.

    I cant get enough of this game. Even though we only had 3 last night, it was still a blast to finally play in a group. More tonight!

    Also, in 3 minutes

      Gotta love his big bronze belt buckle…. “BAMF” … Me and Seth were playing last night and noticed it. What is BAMF?….. Oooohhh….. Lol!

    Yeah, so much to enjoy. Cornie and I actually probably lost more matches than we won (I’ll have to look at our W/L), but we had a lot of fun playing, and one of the matches we did win, we were down 99 – 0 in overtime, and pushed back to win the whole thing! Many, many epic moments and a whole lot of L4D favorite “let’s mess ’em up here” places on the maps.

    The competition is ramping up far quicker than I had imagined. At this point, map, character, and tactical knowledge is almost more important than teamwork.

    rED was complaining about the 6 Bastions he faced once. Here, one Genji takes them all out. (Suggestion: mute sound before playing)
