Overwatch = Nerd Love

overwatch characters

I am loving Overwatch! I normally HATE first person shooters but this one has caught my attention. I started playing, at first, to help fill out a team with my hubs and few friends. Now…

Hi! I’m a nerd and an Overwatch addict. Thanks for having me here!

I am just as surprised as anyone else. I like the relatively short games and variety of character types. I tend to like the mid range, high damage characters the most. I don’t want to snipe and I don’t want to melle on the either.

To be fair – most of the rest of my team is already bored with the game but I keep playing away. Even though there are relatively few maps, no game is ever the same. Everyone who has played since the beginning knows the layouts pretty well so now it’s a matter of skill versus brute force. Every team has their own way of playing; it’s really interesting and challenging to go against a new team every round with a group that you or may not have played with before.

The cast of characters is amazing – they all require slightly different skill sets to appeal to the widest range of gamers possible.

My favorites are:

  • Pharah – high power, medium range. BONUS – She can FLY!
  • Bastion – high power, medium to long range. BONUS – he’s essentially mobile artillery
  • Lucio – medium power, medium to short range. BONUS – he heals the team by proximity and speeds them up
  • Zarya – short range, high power. BONUS – She can shield her team mates and herself temporarily

I may do a post about each and why I like them.

I only connect in game with people I know in real life so if you know me for real, drop me a line and I’ll add you to my friends list.
