Loving the feedback on the new site launch. Glad everyone seems to be enjoying it.

I'm a bit fan of shooters. Doom, Half-Life, Halo, Rainbow Six, CoD, Battlefield. No matter what type of shooter, I've had a try of it, and probably loved it, or at least had a great amount of fun while I played it. Whether it's tactical, like the Tom Clancy shooters or completely for fun like Call of Duty, I'll find a shooter that I'm in the mood for.

I'm also a huge Star Wars fan. I'm one of the few people I know that even have a love for the Prequels (but that's not for discussion here.) I've got Star Wars Lego, my main bag I use for going around is my Star Wars bag. I have t-shirts, socks, even a Kylo Ren Black Series figure I received for a birthday presents, and I of course have my tickets secured to see The Force Awakens when it drops next week. I've played a ton of Star Wars games, and always had fun, even when they aren't rated too highly.

NOTE: These impressions come from the Overwatch Beta's Stress Test Weekend of the 20th to the 23rd of November on PC, using settings mostly set on low to keep a solid 60 frames per second. This was played with Mouse and Keyboard. Please keep these things in mind, as this will cover the impressions of the game itself, and not how it will run, look or play on the Xbox One when it is released.

I was happy when I saw that my account had been flagged to try out Blizzard's newest franchise in over a decade, and boy was I in for a treat. For the time that I spent with the game, I enjoyed Overwatch thoroughly. Though in a Beta state of development and not scheduled to come out until Spring of 2016, it shows a lot of polish, balance, and love of the ideas behind the game. Though I'm sure many things will be tweaked, changed and added by the time it releases, I wanted to play it more than I actually had time to.

Divinity: Original Sin originally (hah) released on the PC back in the summer of 2014, but this year it was released for consoles in the brand spanking new Enhanced Edition. This version adds many new features to the game such as an extended storyline, dynamic split-screen for couch co-op, new items and even loads of new voiced dialogue. Back in the day, this game was actually funded via Kickstarter, and successfully raised over $1 Million to help development.

Starting off Divinity, you immediately realize that it's taking a lot of cues from very old-school RPGs. You pick one of several classes for your character, pick a few skills to go with it, and customize the look of them. Then you move across the screen and modify your second character. In Divinity, in Single Player as well as Co-Op play, you start with two characters that you control. You're then thrown into the world, trodding along a beach where you find many interesting things about the game.

Well, here's a shocker for you. During Blizzcon's Opening Ceremony it was indeed confirmed that Overwatch was coming to the Xbox One, and is now available to pre-purchse. The game is expected to release in the Spring of 2016, and is definitely looking incredibly interesting if any of the gameplay is anything to go by. The decision for Blizzard to release Overwatch simultaneously on the consoles, as well as PC, came from the popularity of Diablo 3's Ultimate Evil Edition on the consoles. This probably means we can expect more console support from Blizzard going forward, which is always a good thing.

The version you can grab on your console is dubbed the Origins Edition, and it comes with some swanky stuff. Including within the game are 5 Hero Skins for the characters Bastion, Tracer, Reyes, Pharrah and Morrison, with Pre-Purchasers also getting access to a Noire Widowmaker skin at Launch. You also get a bunch of stuff for other Blizzard games, though it's unsure how this will work specifically for the Diablo 4 item. You get Tracer for Heroes of the Storm, a Baby Winston Pet for World of Warcraft, a special Overwatch themed Card Back for Hearthstone, Mercy Wings for Diablo and 6 player portraits for StarCraft 2. That's a lot of free stuff just for getting this initial run of the game.

Blizzard Entertainment, the juggernaut behind the WarCraft, StarCraft and Diablo franchises has been known to stick to their three most well-known names. Even their most recent efforts into the free-to-play genre, Heroes of the Storm and Hearthstone take from their own universes. However, back in the old days when they made console games more regularly, they had multiple different properties. 

Their most recent announcement, which came from the ashes of Project Titan, Overwatch, is a shooter that is in a completely new universe. The beta recently launched, and it seems that the feedback from it is overwhelmingly positive. Similar to Team Fortress 2, Overwatch is a first person shooter that focuses on many different characters with unique weapons and abilities, fighting over various different game modes. Currently, it's unknown what the actual business model will be, whether it'll be free-to-play or a full priced release, but what we do known is that for now it's only been confirmed on PC.
