The planet was under attack by Omnix; the people of Earth needed champions to step up and do what needed to be done. When a handful of warriors decided to do just that, the Overwatch was formed! But over time, the people condemned these heroes – going so far as to call them criminals – and the team disbanded. When the world began going to shambles, a former Overwatch member known as Winston decided to contact his old companions and recruit, because the world needed their help once more! So I’m going to ask you what Winston will ask you…are you with us?

Overwatch is a strictly multiplayer game, and while there IS a story behind it, there’s no actual campaign to play. Honest moment here; I generally despise these kinds of games. Despite my blatant disdain for multiplayer games, Overwatch has become a rare exception for me. The goal is fairly simple: Team up with other players, complete the objective using each warrior’s unique abilities, and stop the enemy from achieving their objective. You have a plethora of characters to choose from!

There are offensive, defensive, tank, and support heroes, each with their own abilities and crazy styles. If you want to check out more about their backstories and stats, you can check out the official Overwatch website! This bomb-ass game is bright, colorful, and full of exciting, fast-paced fun. Without a doubt in my mind it gets 5 out of 5 glasses – Thanks for reading!
