Review: LEGO Worlds

If you take a look at a trailer for LEGO Worlds, it seems like a no-brainer billion dollar idea. Take the super popular brand LEGO and mash it up with the biggest game of the last decade, Minecraft. I’d argue that the LEGO reminiscent building blocks aspect of Minecraft is a huge part of what made it such a hit in the first place. Unfortunately, LEGO Worlds is a mixed bag. While the creative possibilities are enormous, building is a chore, combat is clunky, the camera is often problematic, and the entire thing is a grind. That said, I...

Rainbow 6 Siege update buffs Glaz

Operator Glaz’s rifle optic is now equipped with thermal vision, following tomorrow’s update to Rainbow 6 Siege. The thermal ability is designed to only work when enemies are in your field of view and not through walls, but given the track record of these patches I wouldn’t be surprised to see people located through walls on occasion. The other big news is that a “technical test server” is being deployed. The intent is to discover problems with updates before releasing them to the public. The first addition to be tested out will be “one-step matchmaking,” hopefully improving matchmaking for...
