[VentureBeat] Overwatch isn't free to play, will feature 21 heroes - Page 13

post #121 of 137
Pretty much means Overwatch is DOA. All my friends were looking forward to it. After the announcement, no one in my friends group is even interested anymore.

Edit: $40 for a game with no single player is an instant no buy from myself and many people i know.

I think it depends on the map and the character you chose, but i have seen hectic fire fights with the front line offensive characters.

It is there that their communication is lacking for me.

 

I've been playing the beta for about a week, and there are so many different ways to counter already in the game I really see that as a non-issue, though communication could improve I think they still have to make a lot of important decisions.

Why oh why do developers keep giving ol Joe a way to be relevant vs decent players. I understand not making it equal to Quake Live in terms of skill ceiling, that could drive away the kind of audience Blizzard tends to attract but still.... TF2 struck a good balance between fun for casuals but not letting them have too much of a chance vs seasoned players. Overwatch doesn't seem to have that balance. Maybe I'm judging too early, but the Twitch streams aren't doing a good job of changing my mind.

 

I'm no brofessional, but you can definitely notice skill gaps in this game.  And I don't think the intention is to be taken as a serious next level competitive shooter.

 

This will be a great game to get on with a couple of friends and goof around with, easily worth $40.

 

And it isn't a slow placed game in its current state, though different game modes could change the pacing.  With cap-points and payload it's generally people just throwing themselves at the objectives.

Personally, I don't cry over this. I just won't buy it probably. I'd encourage you to check on the posts you base your general opinion on, and examine if they are truly crying over the game's pricetag, or just communicating that the product on offer is not attractive, as it is presented.

this is nothing more than a rumor (f2p) not coming true, and the gamers flipping out because they are ENTITLED to a f2p game. its not a general opinion, its what is happening.

its just crazy how little it takes to make people fly off the rails these days. $40? for a game from blizzard? its not a card game or MMO? make it $100, ill buy, and so will LOTS of others.
$40 is a steal.

Not for a game without single player.

I don't know how many of you have actually played this game, but it's INCREDIBLY fun (I'm in the beta).

Better than team fortress IMO.

4 different classes, but several heroes that are very different within each class. 1 main weapon, E ability, shift ability, and ultimate ability for each character means that there's a lot more strategic depth. And more than one way to deal with every problem.

For example turrets in a defensive position can be dealt with in a number of ways. Tracer can use her speed to get in behind them. Reaper can teleport or become invulnerable to get behind them. Symmetra can take them out from range head on.

Also the different heroes cater pretty well to different play styles and strengths. Tracer is the definition of a Twitch hero. Whereas Pharah is more about using her ability to get in a good position vs your opponents (if you just fly around without being careful you become sniper bait).

This game is well worth paying $40-60 for.

Fair point. I do see the newer models of multipler games lose the single campaign aspect. I wouldnt be surprised to see BF5 have no campaign.

I've seen enough already. I just want my hands on it now. I signed up a few days ago. Not sure how long i have to wait.
