In the comments of S&20's post, there are also some 'leaks' (they were posted by a Riot Twitter account, so more like early announcements) about the upcoming patch notes. Diana seems to be getting buffed (instead of generic AS passive, she now gets a lot more when she uses abilities, increasing her burst) and Udyr's also getting buffed (but no more AP scaling R, time to say goodbye to my Rageblade Udyr.....)

The Udyr changes seem pretty humongous for a fairly normal update, slightly odd when he wasn't even mentioned in any context posts recently.

A little advice reagarding the "lengthy Reddit post"... the person behind this account is no other than Derek Smart. I guess you do not want to be associated with him. But overall the article is objective enough.

There doesn't seem to be any direct evidence it's the man himself, but we're aware that it is not a wholly unbiased source. Rest assured, we're doing due diligence when it comes to investigating all angles.

15% AP Buff on Galio's Q may sound decent, but it really is a hard nerf. Generally you max Q, so there's a 35dmg nerf straight up at 5 points. To gain that back off the increased AP scaling, you'd need 230AP. Since Galio's a tank, you won't be getting that in the game (unless enemy has 3 AP champs). The ults dmg really means little, it's a CC move first. This change is going to hard drop his win-rate, ruining his laning phase.

Have tweaked the opening, cheers.

If the cross-save rumour between PS4 and PC is true, this might be more possible than you'd think, but yeah, I wouldn't have high hopes.

Sorry to run to a.. competitive website.. CoughPCGamerCoughCough... but there's bad news for the PC front: "We do not have dedicated servers for Destiny 2 on PC." They also noted that save transfer is something they're interested/looking into, but there's nothing they want to announce on either fronts at the moment..


Gunplay may be as great (even better than Destiny 1 thanks to Mouse & Keyboard), but if they make it Peer-to-Peer, Raids/multiplayer is really going to drag behind the PC gaming requirements...

What in the world does "deliberately" mean

Yeah, I'm curious on that too. I agree that ME:A was a disappointing sequel, but why would a developer "deliberately" choose to mess up any AAA game?

Heroes of the Storm review snippet Why would you pick Heroes of the Storm over League of Legends or Dota 2?
Mainly the speed. Individual games are much shorter and more action-focused - you can play two or three games in an hour, and even short sessions feel more fulfilling than other MOBAs.

StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void review snippet Are the aliens in StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void scary?
Depends how you feel about faceless psychics and gribbly beasts. It never goes into straight-up horror, and Blizzard's style is so over the top that it defies becoming disturbing.

No, it subverts itself a lot and switches it up from just plain cute rather quickly.

You Must Build A Boat review snippet Have you come up with any clever strategies in You Must Build A Boat?
Beyond matching non-combat tiles outside of combat as much as possible and avoiding wasting big damage combos without anything to hit, no, it's mostly luck with a bit of pattern recognition in there.

The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth review snippet How gory is The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth?
Nothing spectacular, and the low-fi graphics mean it's far less in your face than you get from today's various big-budget offerings. It is gross, though, and if you stop and think about what's going on it's basically disgusting.

Grand Theft Auto V review snippet How open is Grand Theft Auto V to explore?
It's a massive city that's basically completely unrestricted, especially with some mods to open up more of the buildings. The tools you have to get around make it even easier, but there isn't a lot to do out there.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive review snippet How does Global Offensive compare to Source or 1.6?
Source was my game and even the tiniest changes in GO put me off initially. It has some additional weapons and a large rebalance pass, plus various changes to the cash system, menus, level layouts etc. It's also patched more regularly than its previous counterpart. It is as much a brand new game in the details as it is broadly the same. However, if you're a Source or 1.6 hardcore player, you likely already know which you prefer.

METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN review snippet How realistic are the horses in METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN?
As realistic as it's possible to be while being an armoured, immortal horse that gets air-lifted by a balloon regularly.
