An Overwatch Animated Short
Yesterday, Blizzard released a short animation for their upcoming, “team-based shooter”, Overwatch. The short, Recall, features Winston, one of the main player characters. Winston is… “a genetically engineered gorilla and brilliant scientist who longs for the days of heroism to return.” So, like a nice Gorilla Grodd.
From what I’ve seen, this game looks pretty cool. As many of you know I’m already a fan of WoW, and I sometimes play Hearthstone. For the most part, I think Blizzard does a great job with their games and hopefully this one turns out as well. Okay, they do an alright job with games. I’ve played WoW since 2008 and, eh, kind of going down hill. Wait, I’m a blogger, I can shout my opinion. here goes: Blizzard! Stop dumbing down your game! It’s okay to have a complex and engaging online experience… and be a Panda. My point is, you don’t have to make it so simple, every moron and half-wit can understand it. This isn’t Star Wars. You have a chance to make something great. Games should be hard. WoW really isn’t that hard any more… Whoa. Where am I. Sorry folks. Angry man-nerd just took over.
Anyways, check out the video below. Overwatch releases on multiple platforms on 05/24/2016.
