Overwatch Beta First Impressions – it’s fun to play

Last time I wrote about Overwatch there was a lot of hate targeted towards me, but what most of you haters have failed to understand is that I was talking exclusively about the competitive part of the game. At that moment I didn’t think to compare Overwatch with Team Fortress because to be honest in my opinion Team Fortress is not as competitive as other FPS games. Stop assuming that I am against fun games or having fun while playing video game, but I really wished Blizzard would make a more competitive game. I had my hopes set too high when I heard Blizzard was making a FPS game and I forgot to take into consideration that this is the first FPS game Blizzard has ever done.

Before you start with hate comments, yes, I did receive the Overwatch Beta. I’m sorry guys! That being mentioned, I really want to start by saying that Overwatch is indeed a fun game to play, but If beta keys would exist more of us could enjoy the game alongside friends. From my point of view when you play a new game alone you have a tendency of not paying as much attention to the gameplay and also you won’t be able to talk about epic moments or majestic fails.

Unfortunately after trying out the game I still consider that it lacks competitiveness. Apparently people like the changing of hero feature during the game, because most of the games that I have played start with a set of heroes and end with a completely different one. Although I admit I am stubborn and I haven’t changed my hero during the games I’ve played and I wasn’t a burden to the team.

After playing a couple of games with different heroes, I realized that with some heroes it’s easier to aim and move while with others it’s pretty much impossible, it does indeed require some skill. And the thing I hate most is that some heroes have that ‘Ultimate’ ability which in most cases is auto-aim meaning that you can kill easily 3 or 4 guys if they are in your line of sight and at the same time some ‘Ultimate’ abilities are useless and so are their basic abilities.

After I heard the game will have 4 ‘classes’ I decided to go for the ‘Offensive’ one, because it usually requires more skill and aim. In Overwatch however, some defense or tank heroes could kill you faster than any offensive hero. At first I started playing with McCree and Pharah and they became my favorite characters to play with. They are both offensive characters, which in my opinion seem balanced when it comes to basic abilities and ultimate.

When it comes to maps I was expecting some very well made ones, but they made some doors that lead to nowhere, which makes the entire game confusing orientation wise. So if you are one of those who have trouble with orientation even in real life you should probably carefully study the map system before playing.

As expected the graphics of the game and the visual effects are simply amazing which is very characteristic for Blizzard games. Also I think they have chosen the best song possible for ‘Play of the Game’ because it really pumps you up and makes you want to play another match just to reach that ending moment. Even though the way they choose ‘Play of the game’ makes you not want to play anymore because it doesn’t matter if you killed 2 guys with awesome movement and aim, Blizzard still chooses to award the player who made the most kills even if he just stood in one place and managed to kill more players than others (I am referring to Bastion of course).

Overall, the game is fun to play, but I personally don’t find it competitive at all. As I’ve used to play a lot of Call of Duty and Counter Strike, I really wanted something more similar to them. If the game resembles Team Fortress I wouldn’t know because I was never tempted to try it out. However, Overwatch is just in the Beta phase at the moment and I can only hope that some things will be eventually changed until the official release of the game.

Who doesn’t enjoy listening to a good story. Personally I love reading about the people who inspire me and what it took for them to achieve their success. As I am a bit of a self confessed tech geek I think there is no better way to discover these stories than by reading every day some articles or the newspaper . My bookcases are filled with good tech biographies, they remind me that anyone can be a success. So even if you come from an underprivileged part of society or you aren’t the smartest person in the room we all have a chance to reach the top. The same message shines in my beliefs. All it takes to succeed is a good idea, a little risk and a lot of hard work and any geek can become a success. VENI VIDI VICI .

Continuing the legacy of Baldur’s Gate 3 falls into the hands of a different studio, as Larian Studios moves on to focus on their own original intellectual property. Given the studio’s impressive track record, there is a great deal of anticipation surrounding their upcoming project. The team allegedly experienced immense pressure when embarking on their enigmatic upcoming project, and founder and CEO Swen Vincke expresses gratitude that the studio has successfully overcome that initial obstacle.

In an interview with GamesRadar+ after the Digital Dragons conference in Poland, Vincke discussed the immense pressure the developers experienced when trying to follow up on the success of BG3: “In a pivotal moment, we found ourselves under immense pressure, but I confidently declared, ‘Team, let’s cast aside all distractions and focus on the task at hand.” Isn’t that correct? We’re going to create another game. “And we’ll prioritize that.”

Expanding on the topic, Vincke emphasized that the studio’s upcoming project must be a game that the developers themselves would be eager to play. Although it may appear daunting, the developer’s gut instinct has carried them this far. “Clearly, it’s a highly ambitious endeavor.” If we are unable to trust our instincts due to overwhelming external pressures or the fear of meeting people’s expectations, our chances of success will be slim, resulting in a catastrophic outcome. Our main priority should be creating a game that we genuinely enjoy playing. And if it’s that, then we’ll be fine.”

What are your expectations for Larian Studios’ future projects? Can you even fathom the daunting task of attempting to create a successor to BG3 from the ground up? Take the time to carefully articulate your thoughts in the comments section below.

The First Descendant is an impressive co-op looter shooter that has caught our attention. It is a game that has the potential to be similar to Destiny, and its visuals are truly breathtaking, especially considering it runs on Unreal Engine 5. Along with a thorough explanation of the game’s lore, the developers themselves treated us to a story trailer. However, the game’s setting still remains enigmatic, thanks to the overwhelming presence of unique names and overused genre tropes.

According to our findings, the turmoil started approximately a century ago when the Vulgus, interdimensional beings, emerged. They wreaked havoc on society, capturing humans for sacrificial and experimental purposes. Furthermore, the sudden appearance of the Colossuses resulted in the complete destruction of the planet. The remaining humans congregated in Albion, bracing themselves for the ultimate showdown.

The Magisters, a particular group of Vulgus renowned for their exceptional technical prowess, were with them. Through a collaboration with the Magisters, a fascinating gene called “Arche” has been unearthed in select individuals, granting them the ability to tap into incredible powers passed down from their forebears. The “Descendants” possess extraordinary abilities, allowing them to effortlessly defeat numerous Vulgus enemies. When they combine their powers, they can even bring down the colossal Colossuses.

What are your thoughts on The First Descendant? Does it capture your attention? Get ready to face hordes of adversaries as you navigate the comments section from a third-person viewpoint.
