If you get a Play of the Game it'll go in your Highlights from the main menu. I've just been replaying them from there and recording with Fraps.

does anyone hear happen to have integrated graphics? the game looks interesting but I'm afraid I won't be able to run it after I've already forked over $60 :( unfortunately the open beta overlapped perfectly with my exams so I wasn't able to play it.

after poking around on reddit some more, it sounds like you can get a refund for technical issues. might have to get this

I was a bit disappointed at how poorly the game runs on an average computer tbh. I have to play with all the settings at the lowest and with the game set at a higher priority

If you're running two monitors, kill one. A friend of mine with an average pc and two monitors was strugglin', but killed one and now it runs 60fps high-med settings. Not sure what his GPU is tho.

I thought the game was p darn well optimized

Nah I only have one monitor. Though I guess your definition of average pc might be different to mine.

Yeah in mumble people are playing Overwatch as much as Dota now, which is saying something, so if you own the game you should hop in and play with them. The game looks and sounds really fun, but since I just dropped $60 on Dark Souls 3 and can't run it, it might be a bit before I buy it due to lack of money and not wanting to get burned again.

I'd really recommend using here for having a ballpark idea to what your PC can run.

apparently it can run on intel hd graphics. not sure how potato-y your computer is hoovy, but it can't be as potato-y as mine (i7 and 8GB RAM, but intel hd 4600 GPU).

I'm still planning on getting it as long as you people keep playing it. I ain't gonna sink money into it just to have j2 get bored and stop playing it a few weeks down the road.
