Watchpoint Radio #9: Your Watch Has Begun
Launch day is here! Your watch has begun!...
So we weren’t able to record with the guys from Double Tap this week for episode 8.5 as promised, but I did have a chance to sit down with John from In Orbit to talk a bit about Overwatch from a console players perspective. Overwatch is something VERY new to console players, as most of them have never been exposed to a team based shooter of this nature. We talk about his initial thoughts, what he likes and doesn’t, a few differences between console and PC, challenges console players will be facing, and more.
Jarret is Executive Director as well as one of the founding members of Mash Those Buttons. He plays all types of games, but tends to lean more toward FPS, Stealth, and Racing Games. Currently too involved in Overwatch.
I'm not going to lie, film is what I love. I can talk about it all day. I also appreciate art, and that's where I see games. I'm no authority on the history of gaming, but I certainly have appreciated a good story and fantastic gameplay. I love how a good game brings friends together. I represent the casual player, and during my podcasts don't be surprised when games become a movie discussion.
CD Project Red is sorry and says they'll do better, Lucasfilm Games is doing better in sharing the Star Wars license, and fan sites need to do better in speculating on trademarks.
We finish up Act 1 with The Heist, meet Claire, learn about Rogue, and meet T-Bug for the first time before infiltrating Konpeki Plaza.
This week we recap the Maldraxxus portion of the campaign and talk about the great characters you meet, like Marileth, Vashj, Emeni, and more!
Happy New Year! We're making somewhat educated guesses about what lies ahead in 2021 for Final Fantasy XIV! Also we goof off a lot in this one. It's fun!
