Hearthstone is F2P and made a fortune. Blizzard will likely make a killing with this one as well.

This is where video games are going.

I try to get my kids to try out the classics I loved over the years, but it just keeps coming back to Minecraft and TF2.

Kids these days...

My generation just isn't the target audience anymore.
High quality F2P games that don't let you pay to win are fantastic additions to gaming. Path of Exile does this too and I'd play that over Diablo 3 any day.

I hope there's a ladder like mobas and it's not only drop in / drop out pub play.

That's one reason I love TF2. First of all, TF2 is a game where it doesn't really matter if you "win" - it's more of a pure fun game. But second, while you can certainly get some nice weapons by paying money, you can do just fine and have a blast with base gear and pick-ups.

I, too, have been trying to teach my kids that they shouldn't buy any in-game items. So far it's worked with stuff they play on the tablet, but man, when they start playing more involved PC games, I could be in trouble.

The guy who revealed it was so cheesy that it was painful to watch. I'm sure people will love the **** out of this game but it's not for me. Wake me up when they announce sequels to Rock n Roll Racing and Lost Vikings.

Re: Overwatch (New Blizzard Franchise - FPS )

meh sentries/bots are now in like every shooter/rpg that contains classes.



On the game: I like how the bow guy's arrows just ricochet over everything.

There are no keys, Blizzard does betas by just flagging your b.net account.
