I need to get overwatch and grab your battlenet IDs, you have no choice (unless you're playing on a console)

Also after 3 characters (all low level) I finally understand Elder Scrolls online, nothing wrong with a heavy armour wearing archer if you want, or a Dragonknight with a healing staff :P

PC master race and all that malarky like. Give us a shout when you get it.

And yeah, for Fan the Hammer either nerf the damage or give it a CD. Can still put down a squishy, which is fine Tracer/Reapers/etc do need hard counters, but can't rinse a Reinhardt/Roadhog in 2 buttons and 2 right clicks.

Livestream was cringey as fuck but it looks good, gameplay is a lot faster than I was expecting, was kinda hoping it would be more like Red Orchestra style, as apposed to BF4 with a world war skin, but its EA so wasn't going to hold my breath.

Skyrim remaster looks brilliant, really not arsed about anything else from Bethesda

Roll on the big guns today, lets see how badly Microsoft do this e3

Only thing I was really looking forward to was the South Park game from yesterdays Ubisoft conference. "The Shattered but Whole." For fuck sake I was in tears. :lol: :lol: :lol: Its looking nice. Bit of chat about the AC movie that I was interested in, then some shit as fuck boring skiing game. Watch Dogs has taken a hell of a step down from the way it looked from PC feed to the PS4 feed we were getting yesterday. I shall not be buying that for console...at all.

Dead by Daylight is bloody good fun.

Simple concept, but made good by mechanics. One killer vs 4 people trying to turn on 5 generators to get to an exit. Sounds silly, but you add in great sound design, some cool looking monster killers and general fear and it's cracking good fun.

In my usual standard of buying games longer after their release I picked up Dying Light. Looking forward to playing this.

I have Overwatch on PC if anyone is down. I mostly play healer/tank, although I do a decent Pharah.

I'm still practicing with some other characters, like Hanzo and McCree, but I'm warming to Hanzo especially.

If anyone wants to add me I'm on Starchild#2125

Tried out competitive yesterday. It is an absolute mess. The sudden death system is complete rubbish and just hands the victory to whoever was lucky enough to get on the right side of the coin toss, and it looks like the MMR exp is broken on the KOTH maps, which are best of 5 for no reason whatsoever, meaning you have to pray that the repeated maps are the ones your team had the advantage for,
Steam = Starchild

Currently 3w/3l on Competitive in my placements. It's been weird at the moment, most of them were stomps either side, except for a KOTH that went 2/2 and then we got rinsed by double Zayra cos people wouldn't stop shooting the fucking shields and charging them.

Cool beans, I'm procrastinating at work right now but I'll post my battletag later.

Haven't tried Competitive yet, sounds awful from what you guys have said. Sounds like it needed more development time, to be honest.

Nah it's fun enough, and I havent' seen sudden death, it's just always the same with placement games in any game where the skill levels are so outta whack that it's generally ends up being stomps either side.

I remember when League of Legends reset all of it's ELO. You had diamond players in games with bronzes constantly towards the start. Sent shit crazy for a while.

Oh ai, and battletag Socraincha#2785 is anyone wants it

Yeah, you've gotta play 10 games to get your first ranking number. I think those games are partially balanced around quick play MMR but I'm not sure.

After those games you start playing people in and around your rank and you eventually find your proper rank after a shit load of games.

I'm very excited for people to start complaining about ELO hell.
