Last week I finally took the plunge into Overwatch. I loved Team Fortress 2 and I do like my arena style shooters for quick games to fill in the time when I'm not feeling like being a passive observer with a TV show or when painting and hobbies is too much. They are quick and I can stop at anytime... once a match is finished.
Since it launched I've been looking at what character I could play and would want to play. Do I want to be a Sniper a favorite roll I play in Ghost Recon and Rainbow Six (the older games not the current ones) Battlefield and FarCry. Do I want to play an assaulter - get in, hit hard, get out and get dug in. I play this is Splinter Cell Coop. I loved playing a support healer in Battlefield running into fire and healing folks. Tanking is something I do but I prefer to only do that in RTS games.
After some thought I decided I would play Reaper, followed but Hanzo/Genji, and when better set Sombra. It's been seven days and I finally feel like a competent Reaper. I react well to new maps and I'm comfortable in familiar maps and game types. I've got a groove and it recently paid off with my best Reaper play yet. I played the first round with some new characters be we were soundly beaten - so I went back to Reaper and well see below...
Not bad huh?
Well today Lady Bear and I will go see Solo. I'll then head off to get some tools from Red and link with with Wolf and show them my projects. I'll get advice before heading off and picking up the wood I need for my two projects that I'm planning to assemble tomorrow as the HVAC, AC, and Water Tanks get installed.
I'm really happy with how things are shaping up around the house. I like what I'm watching on TV - Brooklin 99 Season 5! With some more demos, I'll be set to start building in the games room.
Things are coming up Dozer and family. Hope you all are having a great day.
