  • - Overwatch?

  • There's a whole lot of people; jeez Louise.

  • - All these different characters; I don't recognize one.

  • - I actually don't know what this game is yet.

  • But yesterday, I was at Fry's.

  • And I was with my friend.

  • He's a big gamer.

  • I was like, "Oh, you play CS:GO, like, whatever?"

  • He's like, "No, right now I'm playing Overwatch."

  • I'm like, "Oh, that's cool.

  • I don't know what that is, but explain more to me, right?"

  • And guess what. I'm playing it.

  • - I watched DashieXP play it.

  • And it looks really fun.

  • - I played the beta, and I've been wanting to play it again.

  • - Heck, yeah! I love this game!

  • You shouldn't play if you have an addictive personality,

  • 'cause you won't stop playing this game. It's so fun.

  • - (Derek) Overwatch is an online team-based first-person shooter,

  • with both sides made up of various heroes,

  • each with their own special abilities. - Okay.

  • I've never done an online video game.

  • - I mainly only play shooters.

  • I play with people all the time.

  • - (Derek) We're gonna have you play a few matches of Overwatch

  • and let you try out some of these characters.

  • - That's awesome.

  • This is gonna be fun.

  • - Okay. I'm about to get rekt.

  • - (Derek) Today you're playing Control.

  • In this game mode, your team will need to gain 100% control

  • of a point on the map to win a round.

  • You'll play multiple rounds. Best two of three wins.

  • - Okay.

  • I'm a little nervous.

  • - (Derek) You'll be playing an escort mission.

  • - Got it.

  • - (Derek) And in this one,

  • you're gonna be trying to capture or defend a control point.

  • - Okay.

  • - (Derek) If captured, the defending team

  • will try to prevent a vehicle from reaching the end goal,

  • while the attacking team tries to get the vehicle there

  • before the time is up. - Okay.

  • This is my favorite map.

  • - (Derek) Go ahead and pick a hero.

  • - Okay, I'm gonna just hit this chick.

  • 'Cause she has cool wings.

  • - Zarya.

  • She looks badass, and she's got cool hair.

  • - Widowmaker.

  • She looks cool, so I'm gonna pick her.

  • - Reinhardt's the best. Everyone knows that.

  • A huge freakin' hammer. He's just so cool looking.

  • - I pick Genji, 'cause he's a baller. He's like the best.

  • ♪ (heroic theme) ♪

  • Okay, let's go.

  • - Left-click [inaudible].

  • The fight, right. Okay. Left-click.

  • - (woman) Don't get comfy now. - Defend.

  • - Oh, we're attacking, so we're gonna go to that--

  • Like, we have to basically stay in that area and take it over.

  • - Okay, so to capture-- oh jeez, where are we going?

  • I'm following you guys.

  • Ah-ha. Where'd you go?

  • - (Athena) One. Attackers incoming. - Shoot.

  • - (Athena) Defend objective A.

  • - I hope there's a lot of lives in this game,

  • because I die pretty quickly.

  • Okay, my entire team is over there. I'm gonna run towards them.

  • - (Symmetra) You are unworthy of the true reality.

  • (gunfire and grunting)

  • - How do I go back? Okay.

  • Wow.

  • (Widowmaker groans) I died.

  • Again, a couple shots.

  • There's a lot of stuff going on. It's pretty hectic.

  • (in game: groaning)

  • - Okay. Getting a little overwhelmed here.

  • - Where am I defending?

  • I am not defending right now. I am running around.

  • (rapid firing) And I'm getting shot at. I need to run.

  • (sighs) First death.

  • - Okay, I-- (mumbles)

  • I'm stunned.

  • And I was eliminated by MonkeyRajah.

  • - Oh, we have a Reinhardt.

  • Oh, dang, he's probably gonna try to pin me.

  • We're gonna go out here.

  • Oh, here he is. Oh, I see. He tries to pin me.

  • I'm gonna pin him.

  • Get pinned, son. Get pinned.

  • I'm so not used to the mouse and keyboard,

  • okay, but I got Reinhardt.

  • (reverberating gunfire)

  • - Ooh, boy. This is fun.

  • - Aah, god.

  • Can I help you? I think I helped him.

  • - Team play is pretty important,

  • 'cause if you don't like working with your team,

  • then you're just gonna lose. And that's no fun.

  • - All right, let's get over here.

  • And now we're gonna capture.

  • - I like how different each character is.

  • Definitely next time,

  • I'm gonna try to get a character with a gun

  • so I don't have to run up on someone.

  • - (Athena) Move attack. - Wait, how close are they?

  • Okay. You know what? Gotta go hardcore.

  • - So we're capturing-- we're capturing.

  • But see, I'm getting cornered here from all sides.

  • - I don't know who I was looking for though.

  • - (Athena) First round won. - (gasps)

  • Okay, we secured the point one out of three.

  • Okay, round two.

  • - You know, I would have-- I would have clutched that.

  • But it was all right. I blame my team.

  • You lose, always blame your team.

  • (in game: overlapping speech)

  • - Okay, now we're gonna escort the payload.

  • - Oh, you can change your person mid-game? That's cool.

  • I'm gonna pick him. (woman speaks indistinctly)

  • Okay. (warbling)

  • He looks cool.

  • - (Athena) Round two: capture your...

  • - I'm gonna go in there with my other one.

  • - (sighs) So now we're gonna escort this payload,

  • and they're gonna try to stop us.

  • And I'm gonna use my huge shield

  • to stop them from stopping us.

  • I should go in the front more.

  • - "Contested." There's a person coming at me.

  • I'm gonna shoot them. Where'd they go?

  • (blasting and groaning)

  • Oh, I was eliminated.

  • - Come on. Come on.

  • Oh, I got him. Okay. (in game: beeping)

  • I should probably play the objective a little bit.

  • Oh, I should play Reaper.

  • (device beeps, character groans)

  • Okay, I gotta-- gotta capture this point.

  • I think I did a pretty good job so far.

  • (ding) Okay, got the point.

  • Go here.

  • (Mercy grunts) Come on, Mercy.

  • (characters grunt)

  • Oh.

  • Oh, okay. I got her.

  • - I feel like I'm attached to this character now.

  • I know what I'm doing.

  • And now I got to go save everybody.

  • - All right, let's keep it going.

  • - Oh my gosh.

  • I instantly died.

  • (woman grunts) - (man) Fire in the...

  • - Okay. Since we're defending, I'm gonna pick...

  • the big knight guy, 'cause I know he has a shield.

  • This guy.

  • - What's the superpower thing that used to, like-- um, it's cute.

  • - It says 99% at the bottom. I'm guessing it's health.

  • - (Derek) That's actually your ultimate ability.

  • - That's my Q. Oh my gosh.

  • Right now.

  • (Zarya speaking Russian)

  • (blasting)

  • Am I killing him?

  • I was still eliminated! Even with my Q.

  • - I'm gonna wait till they rush as a crowd.

  • And then I'm gonna get that highlight kill.

  • Oh, oh, right here. Let's go.

  • Oh. Aw, he did the high noon.

  • Oh, dang it. I didn't realize. - (McCree) High noon.

  • - See, that's an OP ability. I never played this guy.

  • Er, like, I did. But I didn't like him.

  • (heavy gunfire)

  • - Aw, damn. I'm being shot.

  • Damn it! (bangs table)

  • Damn it. This is hard. It's really chaotic.

  • - I'm gonna use my shock wave thing right here. Okay.

  • Okay, so we reached the checkpoint.

  • So basically, we're almost there.

  • When you reach the checkpoint,

  • you got an extended amount of time, which is good.

  • - I think we're gonna win. This is a really easy game.

  • - They're about to-- they're whooping our butts right now.

  • And...

  • Oh, they already jacked it basically.

  • We all kinda just kinda lost.

  • Maybe it's all our first times playing this game.

  • - And they I get-- oh, we failed.

  • Damn. That sucks.

  • - I'm really following this girl,

  • because I don't know what the heck I'm doing.

  • Q-S-S.

  • - (Athena) Victory! ♪ (heroic music) ♪

  • - I won!

  • That was fun. Look how boss I look.

  • - Okay, we're gonna win. - (Winston) We're doing great, team.

  • - This game is, like, everywhere at once.

  • Woo! - (Athena) Victory!

  • - Good job, team.

  • - This team's really good.

  • I mean, we're getting there fairly quickly.

  • There we go! Hey, we won. Pretty good team.

  • - (Athena) Round two won.

  • - Okay. We won... the round.

  • Now we gotta do it again.

  • - (Derek) And now you're switching to Assault,

  • where you're trying to capture

  • or defend certain points on the map.

  • - Okay. I'm still gonna go with this dude right here.

  • The Reaper. He just looks really cool.

  • Two guns. Not even one.

  • - (Derek) You're still playing the same game type.

  • But this time, you're gonna be switching sides.

  • - Okay, I'm ready. This is fun.

  • - (Derek) Two rounds, the game is tied.

  • Are you ready for round three?

  • - Okay, I think we can do round three. I got this.

  • - Think I'm gonna switch... which is H? Yeah, H.

  • Uh... you know what? I'm gonna go with Reaper.

  • Sometimes I do well with him.

  • - So if we're attacking, then I should get an attacker.

  • This guy looks cool.

  • I like his ninja star thing. That's pretty dope.

  • - I'm in an airport now.

  • - (Athena) Three, two, one. - It's like The Hunger Games

  • with the countdown. Heh. - (Athena) Round three.

  • Capture the objective.

  • - So right now, instead of attacking,

  • we're gonna be defending. So we're gonna--

  • We don't want them to take over that area.

  • - I am going straight for the attack.

  • - (Mercy) Enemy seen.

  • - I don't see anyone in my way.

  • - I like getting kills.

  • You know, 'cause the objective-- who needs to do that?

  • Even the other lame people do that.

  • - I don't really go after people.

  • I kinda just hold my ground here and kinda wait for them.

  • 'Cause they have to be in this box, this red box,

  • to take it over.

  • - Let's go, let's go, let's go, let's go.

  • (beeping) Oh my gosh.

  • Oh my gosh. (chortles)

  • Oh my gosh. (in game: pained groans)

  • I was doing okay. I was in the objective area.

  • But there's-- oh my gosh, I'm back to life.

  • Thank you. - (man) Nice.

  • (scattered groans)

  • Oh, I think one of my teammates rees-- agh-- resurrected me.
