    Well, we have Diablo 3, Star Craft 2 and now World of Warcraft servers in Australia.

    Does look cool.
    I'm afraid after many years of TFC, TF2 just never grabbed me. This doesn't look a heap different, but will be good to see Blizz's slant.

    Didn't have a clue when Metzen did this big speech, teared up & then started playing the trailer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FqnKB22pOC0. Was pretty awesome.
    They then showed the gameplay after the Intro https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dushZybUYnM&list=UUlOf1XXinvZsy4wKPAkro2A
    Speech here if interested http://youtu.be/H8PlemnS9SE?t=28m46s

    Beta sign up on the Overwatch battlenet site Overwatch
    Wowhead had some good posts from over the Blizzcon weekend World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor News
    New wowhead site OWking - Overwatch Database

    "Closer than you think" he said.
    Anyone got the goss on any relationship to Titan ?
    & Metallica played a great closing set. Worth a look on YT https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B30efuNe870
