Is this game overpriced? Its literally a clone of TF2 which is f2p and they're gonna charge consoles $60 for it.
this game is fucking amazing holy shit
i dont think it should be priced at $60 tho, it feels like a $30-$45 because it doesn't have an actual story, its sort of just a competitive party game.
because you didn't look at the other editions, go to overwatch page, click pre purchase at top right and then you select between 3 different editions at the top pick the overwatch one on left, it defaults to the middle $60 one for easy money because people don't bother looking for the one that comes without skins and blizzard goodies
It's not team fortress 2, it's team fortress 3. There are similarities in playstyle obviously (payload, king of the hill, etc.,) but since you're looking at more than twice as many characters in ow then you are in tf, they are by no means the same game by that alone. Plus, the graphics are wonderfully well done, ultimates make the game even more interesting than it already is, marketing system is very reasonable (only thing sold are cosmetic chests which can also be earned by just playing the game,) and all those little bits blizzard adds (lines, sounds, interactable scenery, etc) really add up to make gameplay so much better than it already is.
for a game that is like no other, game is based on teamwork instead of full retard 1 shot bodyshot sniper like in csgo etc. Yeah I would say its worth it but if they dont support 4:3 resolutions and dont increase the tickrate from 20 times a second there is no fucking way I will buy it...
>9 tf2 characters
>20+ Overwatch characters
>tfw overwatch PHYSICALLY incapable of being clone
Unless you have valid argument to support your claim, stop trolling, nigger
What exactly is your definition of a tf2 clone? FPS? Somewhat cartoony artstyle? Battle arena?
Holy shit, I guess that means TF2 cloned literally every multiplayer fps since the first fps was created.
If only it was anywhere near as hard as tf2. Switching from comp tf2 to comp overwatch feels weird, but at least it'll be easy to get to the top level of the game just by networking instead of actually being good.
Honestly, I'm a Jew and haven't beaten/even played enough games in my Steam library that I won't get it. Looks like a good game, did take some stuff from TF2, not a clone though. Hopefully this makes Valve put effort into TF2, because if they don't then I might actually go over to Overwatch.
20+ character classes, most with meaningless cheap ultimate mechanics
TF2 sports 9 classes with full customizations. Doesn't rely on cheap ultimate powers but instead relies on the players skills.
But it's really fucking hard to go around as hanzo and kill everything on the other side of the wall with a fucking wall penetrating dragon penis. Stacked on with his powerful bow and wall climbing.
Valve is probably working on VR. See, this is what I suspect they are doing. Load a bunch of money up into the VR shit, so they make a VR game where GabeN masturbates all over your money in front of you.
> yes tf2 is free but you're better off just saving your money
So... just do TF2 is what you are saying?
Honestly, I think TF2 should have f2p servers vs p2p servers. Would filter out the pootis hoovies and GEWP faggots.
FUCK YES I'M BUYING OVERWATCH. GONNA PLAY THE SHIT OUT OF THAT GAME. SHITS SO FUN, FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU?
If there was an extra mechanic added to the game wouldn't that increase diversity of play, not decrease it? In addition to knowing how to handle classic fps gameplay, you also have to time, recognize, and learn how to deal with your enemy's q's as well as your own teams. Second, you can swap weapons in tf2 sure, but in what way (excluding demoknight and maybe sandman wombo) does that fundamentally change the gameplay of the class? Those 20+ heroes are completely unique from one another in their own gameplay, and not just because of their ultimates. Have you looked at the game or watched any gameplay at all?
i like the character designs in terms of gameplay but hate the visual designs. it's that bland anime/disney crossover look that somehow takes the worst parts of both
also the maps are really boring
Well Diablo 2 came out in 2000, which, if my math is right, comes after the year 1992. Also, 2002 nigger.
And that's how blizzard fanfags are. They don't like having someone else tell them that they're being spoonfed shit that's being called amazing. They were much better at their jobs before they got a handle on micro-transactions and expansions (otherwise read as "content that should have been in original retail version" )
lol feels literally nothing like shit TF2, so yeah. i think it's worth $60 if you like it, if you're a flakey bitch who gets bored of a game after 30 minutes then why even consider
If you say so shit nugget, no other game has made that amount of money in that amount of time.
Every single MMO was based on stuff from wow not to mention WC3 was where Dota/Moba genre was born, you can keep shit talking blizzard but they still have made more money than you ever will in the next 50 generations of your bloodline why? because they are successful and good at game design
I had fun in the beta, feels like team fortress 3. Not worth the price tag though for a purely multiplayer experience. I feel like I got to play all the game had to offer during the beta so I'm glad I don't have to buy it.
Can we please stop the "tf2 ripoff" meme that's always spewed whenever any class based shooter is released.
This is coming from a guy with 1,969 hours put Into tf2, it fucking annoys me when games like brink (it was shit anyways) are called tf2 ripoffs.
Even if a game is inspired by tf2, the fucking fanboys have to flock to defend tf2 like it's a personal attack on their game, it's a fucking bandwagon every time.
Battleborn for example, that shit has more in common with mobas than tf2, yet hardcore fan boys still fucking call it a ripoff.
My ass is troublwd
are you retarded? this game is fucking amazing. tf2 is for autistic people that don't know any better
Because they're successful at making you think that. Why do you think they're happy with continuing to update a shitty Mmo from the 90s? Because they can. And you sperglords just keep eating it up.
This game is just meant to suck in WoW fags who are looking for something between updates.
Now all of you be good little trolls and go buy this game and stay there.
We don't need your craptacular suckage migrating to other games the rest of us play to get away from you drones.
While this game could arguably have more depth simply because there's a larger character roster, when it comes down to it they play completely differently. TF2 is rooted deeply in old school style high speed twitch fps like Quake, the game that spawned the TF mod. Overwatch on the other hand is a fps influenced very mildly by mobas, no minions or levels, but cool-downs on abilities and adding more characters rather than more items for existing characters; which I like in a lot of ways. But you wont even need the same kind of extreme precision in Overwatch that you do in games like TF2, it's more about the team coordination (before you get mad at me team COMPOSITION is more important in TF2 than coordination), timing, and game-sense in general. Both have their pros and cons and both are good in their own rights.
I played the beta, and I never really enjoyed dirty bomb or tf2, but I absolutely loved overwatch. sixty bucks is a little pricy, but it is especially fun with a party of people you know. Also surprisingly for such a new game it is pretty well balanced between the characters with some minor exceptions which im sure they will fix. I would definitely give it a chance, and see for yourself.
Don't see why. Alot of the games are fun.
Hots hearthstone both fun. Havn't spent any money since playing since beta ive gotten enough cards/heros.
Sc2 one of the best rts games out there.
wow and diablo have gone down hill I'll admit.
Overwatch is fun deff worth 40$.
Better then alot of other video game companies out there.
Its more fun the LoL.
Played both since beta.
The fact that they took out the god awful 5min of farming minions alone makes me want to play it more.
More team fights, matches that don't last an hour.
And really runes and items did not make LoL more complex.
That and people saying LoL has a bigger following. No shit its been out longer.
When LoL first came out it wasn't very big and people just shit on it saying it was crap compared to Dota.
Wait awhile and Hots will be a bigger following then Lol.
That and blizzard is more responsive to bugs/hotfixes then riots.
Riot took forever to fix hero in-balances and bugs
>they're gonna charge consoles $60 for it.
easy solution, don't be a console peasant.
>$80 in canada
you're probably looking at the origins edition or your currency is shit, hard to tell.
Tbh having played TF2 a lot and a lot of the Overwatch beta I can definitely say I found Overwatch to be infinitely more enjoyable. But it is also a newer game, with more money spent on development, so that is expected.
Bottom line is it is enough fun to me to warrant $40.
Tf2 and overwatch both have their own merit.
If you enjoy a game just play it, if not don't.
Either way a few douches bitching about a game isn't going to change the fact that it's going to make money and be played.
Exactly. I personally wont pay 40$ for the game because I would like something to level up for, guns or perks or anything really, but I Will admit I loved the characters more than the tf2 ones.
all i wonder is if a non-free-2-play multiplayer game can actually keep a decent playerbase after two years.
it's not 2005 any more, competition is pretty tough these days
Oh no trust me I have people to play with, and it was fun as hell (heres a pic of the most fun I had during the beta)
I just cant see myself paying 40$ for it, especially since im out of a job as it is. Maybe if I had the money to burn, but I dont.
>Or you can enjoy the game due to it's visual apperance
Are you fucking kidding me? What kind of shallow cunt are you?
And overwatch realistic style? Fucking really? It's literally pixar cartoon
>mfw actually thinking TF2 is better in any way other than price
I had fun during the beta and I'm gonna have fun when it comes out. And I'm gonna play TF2 again, too. They're both fun. Why does everything have to be a fucking contest with you dweebs.
fite my main scrub, ill rek ya m8
Ah. Well if you don't have money theres more important things then video games.
But 40$ for a game isn't bad.
Ill at least get 50 hours out of it if not more.
I compare entertainment to the movies.
If you would play what 8 bucks for a 2 hour movie.
Then 40-60 bucks for 50+ hours is a pretty good deal.
>And overwatch realistic style? It's literally pixar cartoon
You are like to dumb to argue with, what the fuck.
You can't be fucking saying TF2 looks more realistic than Overwatch
With the ability to switch heros during the game it wouldnt be possible to have that marketing model.
They explained that in a video.
Im glad they are doing this. a flat 40 bucks for a fun game is a good deal.
You've reached levels of autism that no man has ever seen
>mfw you're so digustingly casual you don't even know how high the skill ceiling is in one of the most popular shooter
>mfw you're probably one of these kids who played the game for a few hours when they were 12 years old
>And really runes and items did not make LoL more complex.
>That and people saying LoL has a bigger following. No shit its been out longer.
HoN came out with a year and is dead. Dota 2 is doing well with it's player base but LoL still eclipses it.
Blizzard has an exceptionally shit reputation in doing esports well, so unless they start funneling money into the scene like riot did there is no chance it even gets close.
If you play on PC, which if you are comparing this game to tf2, you do, because console tf2 is and always was aids. Therefore cost wise, it will at least set you back 40$, the 60$ edition is only if you want some dumb bnet perks and skins, 90% of which look uninspiring.
Now, claiming this game is a tf2 clone is much like calling counter strike a call of duty search and destroy clone.
Currently most tf2 servers focus on having fuck tons of people all playing on a certain map all day, maybe you get a server with a rotation, but usually you're looking at 20-30 minutes between map changes. Overwatch is different, and in my opinion better, because you have faster paced matches with smaller team sizes, making the game faster paced and team composition much more important (barring some of the stupid compositions that have yet to be nerfed/adjusted). Furthermore, while 9 classes is a pretty good pool, I feel that the 19 classes overwatch has makes the gameplay far more dynamic and interesting as a player, and I think for the most part the devs have done a great job at making the classes feel unique.
But most importantly I think the most welcomed features are no random crit, some retard can't kill you because XD CRIT ROCKET, and no God DAMNED inventory system, as an early tf2 player who bought the orangebox on launch, I felt that the game immediately spiraled into cancer once the inventory system and additional weapons were added.
Saying Overwatch is a TF2 clone is like saying
World of Warcraft is a Runecsape clone.
>not the same shit over and over again
at least when I capture a point in OW the other team tries to stop me instead of just going after some other point not currently being defended
In Planetside you have total freedom on a map with over 2k players. You can drive, you can fly, you can go ninja or full rambo. And it's free.
best MMO of 2016 according to several sites
Look man i want to agree with you but to be honest the games shit now. They are just pumping out newer and more op weapons every couple months so people buy them. And they nerf the old weapons so only the new ones are remotely viable. It's garbage. I used to play a ton when it first came out. I only played Heavy and the Deci was amazing. They nerfed it into shit. They nerfed other weapons into shit. it's just not fun anymore. My dad has logged over 1k hours into the game and he thinks it's shit. And coming from 2 PS1 vets it's pretty much becoming like the old PS where you cap dead points just for certs since it's easier than actually fighting.
WC3 was way better than that overhyped game.
D2 was a nice game back then but it didn't age well. Most of the fanboys nowadays are dumb parrots who didn't even play it back in the day.
I thought the Gane was 20$... i know the deluxe version that came with skins was 60, huh. Anyway, yeah I'd say it is a pretty awesome game, loads of potential and if Blizzard plays us cards right ill be damned if it doesn't kill Team Hat-ress 2.
Played a good amount of the open beta. I quite enjoyed it but I don't know if I want to give Blizzard my money yet. Are more characters planned for release? Will there be paid expansions for the game?
I think you're a new level of retarded, fella.
Gotcha. I don't think they have said anything.
But Im assuming at some point there will be an expansion.
Only way to keep the game going after a year or so.
Probs more heros/maps for x amount of money.
>uh nuh it's like I said only cheater nuh uh I'm right and you're wrong even though there's fucking crystal clear evidence to anyone who's even remotely experienced with a shotter
You're a fucking newfag and you're the pathetic one. Now get the fuck out my board you retard.
will it be up with functional Multiplayer mode on the PB when it's out ?
don't feel like putting 60buck in a game I might not have the time to play.
>requires matchmaking servers
Of course it won't have multiplayer on a pirated version. I don't remember if the beta had lan, if so then it will end up with limited multiplayer via himachi or a similar program but that's all it will have.
are you sure that you aren't the casual here
not every good player is a cheater, such thing as really good players exist
but I wouldn't be surprised if you haven't seen one ever, since you probably play in shit tier ranks in every single shooter.
ah so? rofl what u play with friends for 5+ geez u got me there loser nice social circle u got playing games all day
and im talking about real life friends incase u confuse internet people as ur friend faggot
wew so edgy
also thanks for asking I just finished my first year in university and now I have a couple of weeks of spring break and then I'll go to work.
And the time is 12:13 so no it's not time for bed nor is it time for school
go damnit you whiny fucker. If it's to expensive for you, don't annoy anybody else.
This game is at least 40 hours of fun.
If some whiny faggots like you all go to the club and waste 100 $ on drinks in maybe 5 hours, thats fine, but 60 $ on a game where u have 5 times longer fun, nah thats fucked up!
wow is monthly payments though.
But I agree with your original statement.
People are willing to pay what 10 bucks to see a 2 hour movie but bitch about buy a game for 60 bucks.
Anyone here implying TF2 is better is a total moron. How many people still play that game? And i mean really play. Not that fedora trade simulator part of the game.
It's not even a copy of TF2, it's a genre of games you imbeciles. Get over it.
Played it quite a lot during the beta period..
For consoles? Don't bother. It's never going to really be worth it.
For PC it's worth it but I wouldn't pay more than 20$ for it. It's not a bad game, has pretty great character design/animation and feels a lot better (though also less arcadey?) than TF2.
The game is overpriced but it's still a good title FOR PC.
Sometimes I don't feel like going all the way to my spare bedroom to sit by myself. I'd rather sit on the couch with friends and drink some beers. I agree pc>console, but I don't fucking care anymore.
if u enjoy overwatch its because u jerk off to either the lore, the pretty ui, graphics, maps etc, or its because you dont mind the fact that its not actually a shooter and you can convince urself its skill based because of countering team compositions. either way its just a shooter and a moba combined with none of the good elements of etiher
>Herr derr, using the cod gun!
In every CS match because I like the SG and Aug. Always feel the need to remind them how old CS is for some reason.
Jesus, in 2018 I'll have been playing CS for 20 years. And I'm still shit at it.
Trying to tell me something I don't know? Pfft, actual fag detected.
You could have left the "than you", sentence would have read better and you wouldn't have sounded desperate. Put some ointment on your burn, bb.
Will I get a TF2 hat (cosmetic) if I purchase this game?
I'm huge TF2 fan...wanna wait on this, see how balanced it is. It may suck balls...no skills...who knows
I've played about 2 hours of TF2 and 1 hour of Overwatch. Don't really care about any of the games but this is spot on and everyone knows it, yet they probably denie it beacuse "Omg awesome graphics and cool music makes Overwatch supperior"
Can you or anyone else please explain whats good about this game. Missed the beta but watched videos and it looks like TF2 (or any fps really) crossed with the art style of wildstar.
bunch of different characters with cool abilities. at first you play and its aight, but after a while you get good and it's bomb. especially when you have a team of buddies and strategize and shit.
I do care about skill, and cheating. What got me into TF2 is how level most of the games are. I have 400+ hours as a soldier, 300+ spy, 300+ engie; so I have a pretty good idea when someone is hacking...and it's soo rare.
CSGO, I bought it, played less than 14 hrs (1.6 was my game). Pointless, all the hax, spend most of every round waiting to restart the round.
U the tard, no bait there.
as a new player you have to entertain the thought that someone might just be a lot better than you instead of calling everyone a cheater. CS can be just as fun and high skill ceiling as tf2 you just have to put the time in first
Fun as fuck, even better with friends. TF2 and Dota Champions combined.
$60 though? I was expecting $20-$30 tops but $60 is crazy. Hopefully this game doesn't die out fast because of the price tag.
tf2 clone with shitty design (kawaii bitches and edgy badass wannabes), and pussified feminist lore (intelligent free willed robots, so no gynoid hot slaves for men, you gotta keep your fatty entitled bitch)
>fast strikers, your tanks, your supports
the fuck are you on about
