Sometimes, all you want in life is an opportunity to hang out and talk shit. With Overwatch voice actors.

Shortly before BlizzCon, the people behind recently shut down World of Warcraft legacy server Nostalrius put Blizzard on notice. "If Blizzard doesn't make an announcement to honour their own core values, be sure that we will," they wrote. BlizzCon's come and gone, and true to their word, the Nostalrius folks made a big announcement. They're bringing it back.
So that was a bloodbath, to put it mildly. Kind of like an Overwatch tournament finals brought to you by Quentin Tarantino. Perhaps South Korea was favoured going into this match-up, especially after their triumphant march up through the rest of the bracket. But no one expected Russia to lose so easily, much less roll over and die.
Although competitive StarCraft is in decline, Blizzard is still trying to breathe some new life into its decades-old RTS series. During the company's keynote presentation yesterday at BlizzCon 2016, Blizzard's president, Michael Morhaime announced, announced new co-op missions and a new co-op commander would be added to the game on November 22. More unexpectedly, he also said that the company would be partnering with Google's DeepMind project to make StarCraft II a new frontier of competitive gaming AI research.
Sombra is basically the Overwatch version of the DDOS script kiddies who bring down services like Steam and PSN. She takes crap you rely on, she breaks it and then she disappears. In the right hands, I think she's gonna be devastating.
Ana is everybody's favourite Overwatch sniper mum, and what better way to show off those motherly instincts than by telling Genji to gtfo when the ninja pop's in uninvited.
One of the big hopes for Blizzcon this year was a potential announcement on the status of legacy servers for World of Warcraft, otherwise known as vanilla WoW.
But it's not coming. In a post on the official forums, a Blizzard representative has confirmed that vanilla WoW won't enter the conversation until after Blizzcon.
