Live games have become a way of life for some people. They’re an attractive solution for people who don’t want to spend £40 every few weeks to play something new. I know I’m deep into at least three right now. It’s a style of games that lives and dies by how closely the developers monitor their player base and react to them accordingly. The trick is to sometimes do what you think is right and not what everyone is telling you to do.
I am still one of those people playing Overwatch. It’s my safety net game, for those times when I don’t feel like playing anything else in my extensive video game collection and just want to play a bright, well-made and colourful nightmare situation.
It’s been a few weeks now since Blizzard introduced the game’s latest hero; Wrecking Ball. A hero that had been teased for a long time under the name Hammond. A name that, much to Blizzard’s dismay, the fan base seem to prefer. Myself included. Now that he’s showing up in competitive games and I feel the need to give my half baked opinion on him.
