When Blizzard announced Overwatch last week at this year’s Blizzcon, there was a mostly positive reaction for the new cartoony, chaotic-looking first-person shooter. Here’s a roundup of Twitter’s reaction to the game.
Need we say more?
TAKE MY MONEY #Overwatch

Plenty of parallels being drawn between the style of Overwatch and Team Fortress 2.

Blizzard’s style was definitely a big part of the cinematic trailer. A lot of their stuff is cartoony, but it did seem like they were influenced by Pixar.

… I can’t unsee it now…
Am I the only one or does the #Overwatch-logo look like 2 people high-fiving each other? And it perfectly fits its theme! 😀

Gotta love the details in the trailers!

Can’t deny thinking this at various points throughout the cinematic trailer…
Valid concerns. Will Overwatch be competitive or casual? Maybe both?
#Overwatch looks intriguing but I probably won't play it, considering how it's destined to become overly competitive

The possibilities are endless and probably awesome.
I hope #Overwatch has hats
And obnoxious anime auras

And if Overwatch doesn’t seem like your type of game, you can just make like the security guard in the cinematic trailer and keep playing Hearthstone.
