Overwatch review: It’s worth the wait
Rising from the ashes of Blizzard Entertainment’s cancelled MMO, Titan, is Overwatch, a class based multiplayer shooter with a visual style which can only be described as “Disneyesque.” I’ve got to admit, I enjoyed the first E3 reveal teaser of the game—it was creative, fun and gave me a warm fuzzy feeling inside.

Offering its new game to over 10 million PS Plus subscribers was a nice thing to do, sure, but failing to provide servers at launch capable of supporting even /one per cent/...
