I've been playing it on PS4, and two things stand out to me. 1) How non-cancerous the player base seems to be. Obviously, people are going to give you crap if you're playing Widowmaker on attack. (a sniper who excels at defense, but isn't mobile enough to be a productive offense character) but overall it's not too bad. And 2) how diverse the characters are. The characters are not copy and paste from other games. They are original, and each have their own strengths and weaknesses.
The real draw for me is that, not only can you play well with the team, and "combo" using ultimates in coordination to get maximum value, but the characters that are the most powerful change with the map, attacking or defending, and skill level. To truly excel at Overwatch, a general understanding of most charcaters will be better than sticking to 1 character....This isn't to say you can't stick to one character.
I started playing Crawl again. I got a USB hub, and another controller this morning, so I can host some multiplayer. Crawl is a pretty neat dungeon crawler on Steam, brought to you by indie company, Powerhoof.
Torgo said I had to introduce myself, instead of hiding in the corner like a creeper, so here I am. I'm here mainly to stalk the tournament circuit and we'll see where it goes from there. I'm bad at this, "talk about yourself" stuff so yeah.
