The Overwatch Problem

The Overwatch Problem

So yesterday I downloaded the Overwatch Beta on the PS4 and played it for a few hours. And while I had fun with it and I’m sure I’ll continue to have fun with it until the beta is up, I’m not planning on actually buying the game and I’m here to tell you why.

First, for those that don’t know, Overwatch is a first-person shooter game by Blizzard (the company behind World of Warcraft, Starcraft, Diablo and, most recently, Hearthstone).

Basically you’re the head of a movie studio and you’re in charge of hiring script writers, actors, directors, etc. and making sure all the movies and sets and stuff are within your budget.
