Well it's just 2 days early access but you're welcome!

That's the thing that I'm really looking forward to experiencing, changing character on the fly to counter others.

Here's a bunch of animated shorts Blizzard made to expand on the backstory a bit. They aren't directly relevant to the gameplay since it's all mulitplayer, but they are really well done in my opinion.

Blizzard has always had really great cinematics, these are no exception. Dragon was my favorite of the bunch but they all do a great job of offering some insight into character's backstories.

Apparently Blizzard is using their Banhammer liberally. Duce approves.

Meanwhile in China, Blizzard and partner NetEase have been swinging the banhammer like a Reinhardt surrounded by Tracers that have finally, mercifully been frozen by a Mei ult, thank the pluperfect heavens. Earlier today, they announced a 1572-person ban wave. Not only that, they revealed the username of everybody who’d been banned. Savage.

In case it wasn’t already apparent, the moral of the story is pretty simple here: Don’t cheat. Don’t “experiment” with cheat tools. Don’t cheat in a box or with a fox. Don’t even think about cheating. If you have an issue with sleepwalking and have been known to shamble to your PC and type the words “Overwatch hacks” into Google, start wearing oven mitts to bed. Or, if that strikes you as uncomfortable, maybe just cut off your hands. If you find yourself cornered by an alligator in a Florida bog and think that soothingly tapping out “Overwatch hacks” on your phone repeatedly might calm it, remember that alligators are generally docile, so you probably deserve the mauling you’re about to receive. If a bomb’s about to detonate and you think the code to disarm it might be “Overwatch hacks,” you’re probably wrong.

Think that covers all the bases. Have I made myself clear?

An interesting perspective from Kotaku today.
"Overwatch Is Salvation For Washed-Up Gamers Like Me"

I'm considering getting this next week.

There are plenty of us that play. You can have both casual games (generally in the Weekly Brawl) or go in with a group with the intention of winning, hot swapping and countering heroes galore.

I only play occasionally but it's very fun to just play a couple of games now and again. Rank play just launched on PC as well, not sure about consoles.
