    How often are they releasing waves? Assuming it's not going to be very often, it's Blizzard.

    Not sure, but they did more opt-in waves today. They will be doing stress test weekends as well, so maybe more people can at least play then.

    Kind of sort of related note, I am in the Battleborn closed beta. Despite the similarities the actual scope and pace of the game is pretty different

    Same, if you want to add me, same name as my SRK handle. It's way more of a MOBA structure, so it's really different. I'm actually starting to like it now, finding out some of the early counter pick stuff. They need to stop with the NDA shit. Not only did they release it smack into Overwatch hype, but they're not gonna let people show content? Shooting themselves in the foot, MAD PEOPLE are tight that they didn't get into Overwatch, and they'd probably bump this game's profile if they could stream.

    In related news, people are renting out their Blizzard accounts for like, 30 bucks an HOUR, or outright selling them for 500 or more.

    Will do when I get a chance.

    Right now I actually enjoy the PVE more than the PVP, which seems like it mostly comes down to swarming the other team. Given the MOBA-ishness of the set up I think it can be more than that, but if there is a higher level of play the NDA keeps me from seeing it in action.

    Now that game looks more up my alley. I like the Gearbox art style and the TF2 vibe of it. In fact, I'd say I'm anticipating that game more than Overwatch depending on how the characters feel from one another and the overall balance so we'll see.

    What platform you folks plan on playing on? I'm going back and forth between PC and PS4.

    I'm laughing at people getting mad at Overwatch not being free to play without thinking what kind of awful business model being free to play entails for this game.

    I think it'll ultimately depend on the aim assist and ability to group on console. Destiny found a pretty good balance with their aim assist where it doesn't feel like your crosshairs are fighting against you like they often can is some console FPS titles.

    Had no issues with Fallout 4.

    Wait, my 1st world problems keep going. I'm off today and was planning on sitting home all day and playing Fallout 4 and Overwatch.
    *Text from one my girls*
    "Heeey I made extra food, you want me to pass over and bring you some? *insert 10 smiley faces*"
    Siiiigh, why... why now????

    Anyways, played 2 games of Overwatch as Reaper, both games got play of the game. Invincible in, ULT, Quadrakill!!! Went back to Fallout 4 after. It's pretty much what I expected. But ill give it some more tries this coming week. What's funny is that the stage loading screen reminds me of Street Fighter stage select.

    Just installed this, I'm probably going to give it a play later today if anybody is down. I know nothing about the game, besides a gameplay trailer I half ass watched on youtube.

    Hyped, was in stress test weekend and played twice at blizzcon, but now Im in full beta

    Lots of changes, including tons of unlockables, new maps/gametypes, and a bunch of balance changes. Bastion does less damage, but that mofo can now attack 360 degrees, making him annoying as shit to kill lol

    Ok, I played a game.

    Good improvements. The loot system makes you wanna come back, and the fact that you can unlock skins and stuff trough it makes it rewarding.

    Good job on the customization as well. New lines, sprays, poses, should all give you a unique feel.

    I still find it takes a bit too long to get back into the fight, but I guess that's needed for such an objective driven game.

    Unlocked my first purple crate. You know what the purple item was?

    150 credits.

    Da hell?

    My funnest game was when we called pure Reinhardt team (one dude refused and played lucio lol) and we literally just pushed the cart to the end of the level without it slowing down.

    I'm not in the beta yet - there's a TF2 payload style mode?
