If you aren’t very connected to the gaming community, then you probably have little knowledge of what Overwatch is. And if you are part of the gaming community, you have seen it’s explosion in popularity, especially with Monday’s launch day of the game. Prior to launch, Blizzard created animated shorts for different characters to add to the story of the multiplayer. And these you have to see.
I’ve mentioned in previous blog posts that I don’t play video games, but I avidly watch other people play games. My focus is on the story of the game or the artwork of the game, and how the gamer plays the game. So, I would watch on YouTube primarily, and then that connected me to Twitch.
So I am that person who watches other people play video games, and never play them myself. Yeah, it’s strange, but life is strange (heh get it?). Anyway, one of my recent games I watched through is Life is Strange, a game that focuses on a teenager who can control time and must save her classmates and friends from death and destruction.
