The Mercy Skin for this is great.  And by great I mean *wolf howl*

So the horde mode is only during the event. It's a brawl mode where 4 of you only choose Ana, Mcree, Hanzo, and Solider: 76. Played a little bit and was fun. You also get a free loot box by signing in. All loot boxes are Halloween boxes during the event.

Also confirmed you can buy all the items but they are 3x the normal currency price.

Someone who has been playing a shit ton of Mercy posted a nice little highlights clips. Gotta say, I'd like to play half as decently as this person. To be slightly fair, some of these damage dealers are crappy and a lot of lucky teams dying in groups, but it's still a great video.

Sombra Officially joins Overwatch as a playable character.  The ARG jokes can end now.

EDIT: I thought the BlizzCon announcement released her but I guess she's just on PTR right now?  I dunno.

Her abilities are up on the Overwatch page. I feel like she has a bit of an overlap with Tracer in that she has rapid-fire small arms, can instantly teleport a bit away, and has an ult bomb. However they are different enough to be fine and seem like gameplay wise they'll be different anyways, that ult is way more gamechanging IMO than Tracer's and clearly Tracer doesn't have anything like hack. I look forward to giving her a try! I like sneaky characters.

Copied from Tim from this thread:

It is part of what puts me off to buying the game. With it being such a team-based game that only has a PvP focus, I can't really get a good idea of how things work from watching it in that perspective. Not enough of one to feel comfortable in a PvP environment. Maybe it is just League's terrible community in combination of the Vanilla WoW PvP grind that makes me so hesitant to go into PvP games, but there it is.

First, I want to reiterate the game has a co-op vs AI queue.  Said queue allows you to unlock loot boxes and counts for first win of the day so you are in no way forced to do any of the game's PvP modes.  You can easily learn every hero in the game from there and even earn cosmetic rewards while doing so.  The only thing you have to PvP for are some of the achievement locked sprays.

It's also worth reiterating that any "grind" the game has is just for cosmetics.  There's no unlocking heroes, no growing in level to gain in power, no runes or masteries.  Every time you level up it's just to get another loot box and add to the number under your portrait that really only serves as an indicator to others how many hours you've played the game and that's about it.  So unless you are deadset on getting a certain skin for a certain hero, you aren't forced to grind.  Hell if you want to you can just buy loot boxes with real money until it drops for you.

Overwatch is having a free play weekend next week! If anyone wants to give it a go with some friends I'd be happy to play along with.

Dang, that sadly doesn't coincide with any game nights otherwise I'd recommend it for that.

Not only do I work that weekend, but Graceling (my little Grace from med school) will be staying with us from Saturday through Wednesday.  So....maybe?  She does like gaming.
