    Overwatch - who is playing?

    Just wondering... I can't decide which platform to buy for. The reviews seem good and a lot of coverage online of it (poor Battleborn).

    PC - best controls and probably best graphics even on my midrange gaming laptop (i7-6700HQ, GTX960m 4gb, 16gb ram)
    PS4 - most friends on here and hence likely to play with them if they ever got it
    Xbox One - favourite controller and interface; bit of a moot point though given I have a Cronus+ to use the Xbox One controller on PS4 or PC

    Aren't they all on AWS? K+M vs analogue sticks... not fair.

    Anyway realised price difference is huge:

    PC - $39.99 USD for standard (my entry point) - about $54 SGD; Origins is $59.99 USD ($80 SGD) but this is moot as I don't care for the extras
    PS4 - SGD $90 from the digital store; or if I could get a physical copy from Australia it sounds like it's circa $78-$85 http://www.kotaku.com.au/2016/05/wha...-in-australia/

    (note AUD is about the same as SGD currently)

    So... PC it is.

    Definitely go with PC for any Blizzard game - I can imagine Overwatch being alright on console, but some of the champions do a lot better on PC

    I like it better than any other FPS that I have played. Although I found it's better in shorter bursts than usual.

    Re: Overwatch - who is playing?

    Sigh, I couldn't get the game to work on my laptop last night. The 4K screen caused scaling issues and the cursor was not working properly (i.e. it wasn't hovering over what was the selection). Will try again tonight when I have more time. Hopefully can get good framerates on my laptop, and keen to try my new DAC/AMP.

    This game is much more casual then competitive, if you want a real competitive FPS, then CS:GO is the game.

    Also game is slowly becoming stale, once you know heroes and maps it's very similar in a sense, there's little customisation, and knowing blizzard, they'll want to do everything themselves.

    It's definitely good in short bursts and if you play an hour or two at most a day, you'll probably be fine for a while.

    Re: Overwatch - who is playing?

    I've got about 50 hours on it so far and it's still incredibly fun. Easy to learn, but not easy to master. It's more like a mix of TF2 and League of Legends/Dota than anything else really.

    Yeah TF2 + Dota/LoL is a good way to put it.

    Don't get me wrong its really fun at the start but after a while you release the limitations of the game through its small meta and monotonous game play

    Yeah I've noticed that too. I've been playing for about 3 months and I still love it, but it can get repetitive.

    Can someone tell me how to git gud at deathmatch? The only hero I can play decently with in deathmatch is Mercy idk whether thats really good or really bad
