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

Tesla’s new Semi truck is capable of driverless convoy

When you think of Tesla vehicles, you usually think about sleek lines and rapid acceleration. With a 0-60 speed of five seconds, the new Tesla Semi truck won't leave anyone behind at the traffic lights. 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

The five new items of the Dueling Fates update

There’s a lot to learn with the Dueling Fates update, from gameplay changes to new heroes and plenty of item alterations. Every hero type is being given a lot of new content to work with—and now, they’ll be given new items to play with. This patch introduces five brand-new items into the shop for players to buy during their battles. Each item has a dramatically different implications and implementations, from passive-ability lifesavers to, literally, crashing mayhem upon your foes. Applies a 6 s

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

League of Legends’ World Championship quarter-finals turned me into a fan

Not being much of a League of Legends fan, I wasn't really watching the World Championship quarter-final between SKT and Misfits. SKT and Misfits were facing each other in the League of Legends World Championship quarter-finals, and the Korean favourites had a real fight on their hands. From that point, the more passive SKT started to act bolder. In the space of a few seconds, Misfits were down four summoners. Even if you’re not into League of Legends, it might just be exciting enough to hold yo

Destiny 2: Leviathan Raid Speedrun Sets New Record

Since Destiny 2‘s Leviathan raid went live, players have been competing to see who can complete the incredibly tough activity the quickest. One fireteam completed the raid in 27 minutes and 24 seconds and this was seen as an impressive time, but now, another group of players has totally smashed that record. The new Leviathan raid speedrun record is now 23 minutes and 28 seconds, as of yesterday (October 8, 2017). With this fireteam having revealed a few of its tricks, it probably won’t be long u

Please don’t let Cuphead speedruns make you feel bad about yourself

Most of us can agree that Cuphead is difficult: Early worlds can take hours to beat, even with a two-person team. He even has the time to stop by the Porkrind Emporium and thoughtfully purchase some new weapons for our little Cuphead hero. We can watch this and take it both as inspiration and a training video for our own Cuphead runs. This streamer beat Cuphead on regular difficulty without dying, restarting or using any health charms — all in under an hour. Best of luck to all of you Cuphead pl
