In my fit of boredom last night after playing a good amount of Oblivion I started to wonder what big games that I could try at that moment I hadn’t given a go yet. It was at that moment that I remembered a particularly funny video about a similar game to Overwatch called Paladins, which when I found it on Steam I realised was free so I had to give it a go!
From first impressions on the game after playing for a couple of hours or so I actually found it to be rather enjoyable. Sure the premise and even some of the playable characters are extremely similar to Overwatch (Really? A red armored dwarf who builds turrets!?) however I found there was a few key differences that helped to make this game its own thing. The most notable thing was just how much faster paced this game was, it went at blinding speed and with my favourite character so far having a sprint ability it means I can almost hardly keep up with what is happening on my screen at any one time!
So yes I think I will try a bit more of this game out and see if I still enjoy it. I wonder what that guy in the mech plays like… That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
