Welcome to Overwatch's Winter Wonderland! - Trailer #Overwatch



Click on the Headline for the Overwatch Winter Wonderland Trailer.


Quote:
Starting today, all in-game Loot Boxes have been replaced with our impeccably wrapped Winter Loot Boxes, and they’re filled to the brim with over 100 new cosmetic trimmings!

As with previous events, Winter Loot Boxes can be earned or purchased, and each will contain at least one item from our 2016 Winter Wonderland collection—including profile icons, sprays, victory poses, emotes, highlight intros, skins, and more! While the contents of each seasonal Loot Box are random, you can unlock a variety of these cordial customization options in the Hero Gallery throughout the event’s duration.

Once you've unlocked an item, it will be yours forever, which means you can get into holly jolly hijinks all year-round. The collection will be dashing back into the vault on January 2, however (when the event concludes), so be sure to fire up your favorite gaming machine and celebrate before it’s too late!

It's lookin’ downright festive in these parts: http://blizz.ly/OWW2016

The season of giving (and receiving) is here, and we’re ready to celebrate. From now until January 2, every day is a snow day in Overwatch! Unwrap all new holiday-themed loot, take a stroll through the decked halls of Hanamura and King's Row, and put your enemies on ice in our latest brawl: Mei’s Snowball Offensive.

Eh, I'll just stick to other games. Skins are weak.

Skins are no reason to buy a game, sure. But this game is the opposite of weak. IMO it's the best game on any platform right now.

It's amazing.

Fuck yes it is. The skins are just the food coloring used to make the sprinkles that are on top of the icing that covers the cake that is filled with vanilla ice cream that was made by milk produced by cows that are in constant orgasm.

It's certainly the best class-based FPS on any platform right now. I wouldn't call it the best overall game, though. It is, after all, only a class-based FPS.

Name a better game then.

It's not lIke you have to choose a best game per category. Imagine if the Oscars didn't have an overall best picture. Same thing.

Fortunately, this isn't the Oscars and an team-based online shooter isn't going to scratch every gaming itch I've got.
I spent much more time with DOOM than I did Overwatch, but that's mainly because I wanted the single-player experience.

Overwatch is certainly one of the best games of the year. I just wouldn't call it the best.

The unlockables are great. The maps are perfect and I want them year round.

Mei's Snow Brawl is GARBAGE. Get your free loot box and get out.

Kind of depends on how you judge "best game". Chimpbot is on to something about "not scratching every itch". I play/love overwatch but just with friends and usually just on Friday nights. It's a great little team based shooter that pairs well with a couple of beers, but I've had a better overall more rounded experience elsewhere.

Black Desert Online released in NA this year. I've put 200hrs into that already. It's a deeper, more rewarding overall experience. (for me)

Xenoblade Chronicles X released last December, but it was snubbed from all awards everywhere because "it released too late in the year", so if you count that, I put 300+ hours into that, and again found it a deeper, more rewarding experience.

Stardew Valley, same thing - deeper, more rewarding overall experience.

But don't get me wrong. Overwatch is a great game, and it's up there as one of the best games of the year. Though part of the equation is that it's been a pretty skimpy year for A+ mindblowing cant miss games. Looking back on the year, there are almost 0 or maybe 0 games I couldn't live without. The year seemed to be missing something like a "Half-Life 3". Something massively standout and exceptional.

I almost never play these types of games, but Overwatch has me hooked. It's fantastic; and since I only play with people I know we always have great games. It is my Game of the Year.

You'll stick to other games because the skins are "weak"?
