Destiny 2: Player Pokes Fun at PvP Balance and Fusion Rifle Nerfs

PvP in Destiny was always a work in progress, and when it came to balancing the experience, Bungie made some questionable choices. That being said, the bit about fusion rifles is particularly funny because it rings so true. While sniper rifles and shotguns have wavered in terms of their dominance in PvP, fusion rifles have always taken a back seat. At one point, fusion rifles were a great secondary weapon choice, but one nerf is all it took to make them practically useless in PvP. Maybe not fore

Garrosh is now playable on the Heroes of the Storm PTR

Garrosh, the son of famed Horde warchief Grom Hellscream, is the newest character to join the Heroes of the Storm cast.

Warlord's Challenge is an AoE taunt that silences nearby enemy heroes and forces them to attack Garrosh for 1.5 seconds. Meanwhile, Decimate is a 360-degree Clea

The Dolphin emulator developers spent two years fixing a nearly-impossible-to-solve stuttering problem

Here's the super, super short version: you can now play some problem games, like the Metroid Prime trilogy, with zero stuttering, thanks to a new "ubershader" mode. Dolphin has to translate those effects into shaders, and shaders have to be compiled, which takes time. Dolphin can cache shaders, so once a game has compiled a shader, it shouldn't cause stuttering again. That's why as you play games like Metroid Prime in Dolphin, the stuttering becomes less common. That last problem is why, even th
