    Accurately sums up a lot of these games that you "can" play anywhere, the emotions that OW brings out are best left far away from anyone else...who are we kidding though, the console OW is the red-headed step child anyway so people would sign up to be even further removed from the glacial update speed which Blizzard operates at? That dreadfully slow pendulum rebalancing drove me away a long time ago.

    He makes a solid point in regards to Hanzo.

    I probably have at some point. When I have a game I'm in to I carry it around everywhere.

    I wonder if gyro aiming will affect the Switch version balancing specifically.

    I don't think there are even console only nerfs anymore

    I'd be interested in Overwatch if it had any kind of single player content. The character designs are awesome, the story is neat but... it's a multiplayer arena game and that just makes me lose interest.

    Currently Most Hype For: VTMB2, Cyberpunk 2077
    Currently Playing: Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

    could be worse; just ask console players how fast TF2 updates

    Well played on the title. I'm assuming it's meant to be a combination of the portability of the Switch and the fact that Gabe is "bellowing" in a coffee shop. :)

    I had to ban people from playing PUBG on mobile in my store for exactly this reason.

    I hate to be that guy but I'm pretty positive it refers to bellō and the latin extensions. I.e. "portable war"

    Eh, I think my interpretation has just as much potential for Jerry wordplay. The only thing that makes me lean in the latin direction is the absence of a W at the end of the title. But that just begs the question of if it was more important for the title to include the proper spelling of bellow or for it to match the name of a mushroom.

    Too bad Jerry doesn't read the forums or he could clear this up for us!

    I assumed it was Italian, as a riff on Starbucks' weird size naming convention. But Latin seems like a Jerry thing too.

    As is doing all of these things at once.

    It's like the perfect title. It's making three jokes at once. We should expect nothing less from Jerry.
