Title: Overwatch
Post by: Alphapug on November 03, 2016, 12:29:49 PM
I just can't get enough of this game and I thought I'd share a few clips and maybe get a small discussion going if we have any Heroes besides Craigyroo and myself here. I've been without PS4 for 3 weeks now, but the Pro arrives in 1 week so I'll be back in the fray there too.

3 snippets here. I'm especially happy with the Zarya clip. I've been playing her quite a bit and she can absolutely dominate if you play her correctly.

I love this one because Zenyatta calls his ultimate "Pass into the Iris" but it gets cut short as I boop him into the well. 👍🏼

I simply can't play a FPS on console. Been wanting to try this one though but my pc can't handle it.

It's optimized pretty well on PC, so it may run alright on a lower setting.
Another clip. "Aiming's overrated."

There have been excellent animated shorts released by Blizzard. Here is the original trailer

Good, I hope you give it a solid go. With 22 (soon to. E 23) heroes, each with very different abilities, movements, and attacks, it really has a huge depth of play. I'm around level 150 on Xbox and 22 on PS4, and I feel like I'm really solid and proficient at around 6 of the characters. I'll play others, but I feel like I just haven't mastered the basics on some of them.

Been having some good matches with Craigyroo lately. This match was a solid one for us. We kept the evil red team bottled up for a long time.

I felt a bit sorry for that crowd because I've been on the receiving end of a siege too, They didn't like your ultimate as it looked like they might have made the checkpoint , I am enjoying Overwatch it has that "just one more game" addictiveness quality.

Post by: Alphapug on December 02, 2016, 08:08:19 AM
Yeah, I think I'll be playing for a long time. I still feel like a rookie sometimes. In this match I think their team composition really hurt them. When one of them quit we had it locked, but as soon as they got a Reinhart and a DVa they were able to push me off the payload. If their Rein hadn't charged ahead, letting me kill him and then Graviton Surge the rest, I think we might have had our hands full. Their 2 tanks would have been too much for me to handle without our team picking up a tank. Good fun.

Here's my favorite new Youtuber on playing Junkrat. Now this guy has a very subtle accent. I'm guessing he lives in northern Italy, on the border based on nuances in his voice.

Anyhooo,

Roo , I guess it's not just overwatch lagging. Makes sense since I've seen nothing lag related on the Xbox side. I haven't been playing any other PS4 online stuff, so OW has been my only reference.

What's that you say? Why does Widowmaker have a tattoo meaning "nightmare" in French? I'm glad you asked.

Credit to The Overcast for pointing this out
Widowmaker's tattoo wraps around her forearm, but is supposed to be read as
"araignée du soir, cauchemar"
which translates to
"evening spider, nightmare."
This is a play on the second half of a common french superstition:
"araignée du matin, chagrin, araignée du soir, espoir"
which translates to
"morning spider, grief, evening spider, hope."
Basically, french people think if one of the first things you do in your day is see a spider, your days not gonna get any better, but one at the end of your day means tomorrow you'll be lucky or receive a gift.
Widowmaker's tattoo is a play on this phrase, saying,
"If you see this spider at night, you're getting a nightmare in the shape of a bullet between your eyes"
but I guess that wasn't as elegant. Either way, this is a reference French players will get more out of than Americans.

I see in the YouTube comments someone has transcribed the interview, I didn't realise we had universal translators in real life.

Mikey John O'Shea gives Joe Kelly a good run for his money in the incomprehensible stakes-

Any good play of the game should end with Moira bitch-slapping Hanzo.

Sent you a PSN friend request. I haven’t played much comp lately, mostly QP, but I’m up for everything. Mostly support/tank.
