My daughter wants it...shes been asking how much it is and keeps stealing my PC to play ;) Its her birthday soon, so maybe..... hopefully her PC runs it ok :) Should do though, know ppl who were on older machines and could run it with stuff turned down.

Definitely get her into it :)

 

hope she can get into some good matches without the filth of the internet being a mosquito!

 

 

 

I've seen people play overwatch of potatos that you cant even spectate without seeing the lag they are experiencing!

 

Might be time for daddy to give an upgrade ;)

Despite having little time for gaming lately I feel I should get this; I had quite a bit of fun with it when they had a free weekend a while back.   Is the GOTY edition worth the extra money?

Only if you want the extra skins and add ons for other blizzard games. The GOTY makes no difference to the gameplay.

Yeah, my mate was running it on a Core 2 Duo with 4850, had to turn down stuff but was playable for him :) Hes since upgraded to an i5 and is like "wow, never knew that was there before...." :)

 

Daughter is on Core 2 Quad with a newer card than a 4850, so should run ok.

 

And yup, I'm due for an upgrade this year, so she'll probably end up with my current box which runs the game happily :)

I was running overwatch on an old C2Q 2.6Ghz, 4GB DDR2 and a GTX460 @ 1080P on medium and can keep in the 40~50fps range. The game is very well optimised for potatoes
