Hands-on with Rainbow Six Siege’s wonderfully weird next update

This is the special ability of Grace "Dokkaebi" Nam, one of three operators arriving this month in Operation White Noise, the next Rainbow Six Siege update. I played as her and the other two new characters on Siege's next map, Myok Meok Tower, at a preview event last week. In a game that already contains unusual traps and gadgets, Dokkaebi stands out as one of Rainbow Six's most satisfying gimmicks. It's cool to have a map where the attackers have total security in the opening seconds of the rou

When packed to its 80,000lb maximum gross weight, it can get up to 60mph in 20 seconds, which is seriously impressive. According to Tesla CEO Elon Musk, 80% of routes that trucks make are 250 miles, so will be fine with the Semi. One of the most impressive things about the Tesla Semi is the abili

Overwatch’s new hero Moira is now live on PTR

On Friday Blizzard revealed Moira, Overwatch's latest healer, live on stage at BlizzCon. And now you can play her in the latest PTR update, which went live Monday afternoon. Her right hand fires a long-range beam weapon that saps enemies’ health, healing Moira and replenishing her biotic energy. You can see the full patch notes for the PTR update here. But if Mercy uses Valkyrie first, that cast time is dropped back to 0 and her movement speed stays at full.

Alexstrasza goes live and Li Li gets an overhaul on Heroes of the Storm PTR

A new Heroes of the Storm patch that brings World of Warcraft dragon queen Alexstrasza to the fight is now live on the PTR. Alongside the new hero, the update also brings in numerous improvements to AI, a large number of bug fixes, and what appears to be a fairly major overhaul to Li Li. Blizzard didn't say why Li Li is being so dramatically changed, but it likely has to do with her relative lack of utility at top skill levels—this Reddit thread is several months old but nonetheless has some int

Mercy nerfed, Ana buffed in the latest Overwatch PTR

Blizzard is testing some changes to two of Overwatch's healers: Mercy—currently regarded as overpowered and a must-pick in all situations—is getting nerfed, while the healing sniper Ana is getting a small buff. The ability now has a cast time of 1.75 seconds (up from 0 seconds), and can be interrupted by knockbacks, stuns, and Sombra's hack. "We feel that Mercy’s recent rework has been successful, but her Resurrect ability still feels too strong and frustrating to play against," read the develop
