Its funny they are talking about it for jumps. 1 Concussion mind can kill Tracer and Mercy in one hit, and kill every other 200HP hero that's been lightly damaged. 2 will make him super strong at area denial.. I almost feel like this is OP and they'll nerf his concussion mine damage to compensate while upping the trap damage so its still a instakill combo. Double mine traps would severely damage tanks, which are already being crushed by the new Reaper. With the new Roadhog buff incoming he's probably the only one that could survive it if he's quick enough on the heal button. I rather have the HP buff to the tire than speed. Too often 76, Hanzo, McCree, or any hitscan hero takes it out if the map doesn't provide a good spot to surprise people with. Making it faster really wont help too much.

I'm excited for the D.Va Changes. the Mercy changes are crazy. I just got decent with her and now shes a bit different. I will admit it was demoralizing when she nulled your team wipe, and when you're playing with randoms and no one is even trying to kill the mercy it made it frustrating, but this will be even more frustrating in that situation. At least I know I'll never waste my single rez on an attack Widowmaker. XD

Those new rockets for D.Va look way powerful. I bet they'd tear Reinhearts shield away in a single barrage. Mercy flying all over the place seems a bit whacky. The only real tell that will give her position away is the stream from her heals and buffs.

They are, but you cant really aim them good, so you're really not going to hit anyone from far away. D.VA has suffered since her HP armor nerf, shes probably the most squishy tank. They will never make her like she was ever again so the answer was definitely to give her more power. With her Defense Matrix uptime heavily nerfed she'll no longer be able to cancel out McCree's and Soldiers ult. I don't think those can single handedly destroy Rein's shield, they barely take down a single character. Rein has suffered a lot lately though, and once the Junkrat buff goes live, I bet more people start playing him which will make it really hard on Rein as Junkrat is the hard counter to his shield besides Bastion.

Mercy is going to become very powerful on console. People have a hard enough time taking care of Phara, and unless you're 76, McCree, Widow, or a really good Hanzo, Phara players do as they please if they have mastered fuel conservation to stay in the air at all times. Even knowing where Mercy is, her mobility will be too much during her Ult. There will be a lot of blown High Noons just to cheese take care of it.

I LOVE this character. I have a feeling shes going to be hard to get a hold of as time goes on. Kudos to Blizzard for making healers like Brigitte and Moria that can fight and disengage... basically healers that don't need to be protected by the team and are fun to play with decent offense. But even more so for Brigitte's ability to be a frontline brawler healer. Shes a beast, with an awesome kit. Her shield bash cancels out all abilities if you land them right, and cancels ults if you're in the right place to perform it. Her only downfall is she has a map meta. Escort is her forte, open maps are definitely her weakness. You need tight corridors to get good positioning on shield bash stuns and because her main attack is a generously ranged melee. Plus your attacks are what heals, so you have to stay active to provide heals to your team. But damn shes super fun to play. The no one playing healers has declined ever since Moira came out, but now I think you'll have two a lot of the times, which currently is a meta team comp. Having 2 healers vs. a team with only 1 is going to favor the team with the most healers, and it will compound if the other team's healer isn't very good at playing healer.

Heh, I was going to play this over the weekend since it was free but Blizzard yet again picks one of the worst weekends for me to do this. Between the new FFXIV content patch on Tuesday (so much to fucking do x.x) and Detroit: Become Human having come out on Friday I don't have the time (which I'm fucking loving Detroit, probably the best $70 I've spent in a long time). Sucks because I really wanted to try out Brigette, I'll just have to wait until the next free weekend.

I'm enjoying Brigette while I can. She'll eventually get nerfed to uselessness. All the pros and big channels are crying how shes too hard of a counter to Tracer. Tracer finally got nerfed after 2 years, and it was only to the radius of her ult. Brigette is the only real hard counter to her. Shes really not OP if you know how to take her down. Phara and Junkrat both are super hard counters to her, but both of them have their own hard counter and Tracer has never had one. Winston was your best bet, but he only chased her off. Brigette destroys her, and even then thats if you catch her getting too close. The whole reason I hate playing Mercy or Zen when the other team has a damn Tracer is because she just keeps getting behind the lines and killing me with no one else helping or even paying attention. Its why I mained Lucio most of the time because I could boop her away from me and run off to stay alive.

I don't buy the whole "stale meta" when Tracer was always picked before and now she is not. Its pure hypocrisy seeing as deathball and dive comp has been the meta since triple tank got killed off. But since Tracer is the face of the game, I'm sure eventually Brigette's damage is going to get nerfed and her stuns are going to get toned down to where everyone is back to playing Lucio and Mercy. Luckily Mora is a lot of fun to play, I honestly play her more than Brigette, since she's an off healer like Zen and I get pigeon holed into healer 99% of the time. With the Hanzo rework he is always picked now. 9 times out of 10 when you load in hes the first character locked in within seconds.

Did someone really need to cross Hamtaro with Miley Cyrus?

Hypocritical side note on myself. I was okay with Yarnie in Saints Row: The Third.

      I finally got around to finishing Wolfenstein: The New Order last night. The plot was good and the overall experience was great. Well worth the $7 I got the game on sale for during a PSN sale. Dual wielding weapons seemed a bit pointless for most of the game until you get to the last areas and it becomes pretty vital. The officers in the game could call in reinforcements so it was best to kill them first. After you get an upgrade you can detect their communications signals and it encourages you to play a bit of a stealth game to kill them off first and then sweep up the rest of the enemies afterwards. Sneaking around thru some duct work and access passages to throw a knife in the back of some guy's head or use a silenced pistol was pretty damn fun. But the real fun of this game is to go full guns blazing and destroy everything in your path. I died so many times doing that in the second part of the game. lol. Some enemies have some extremely strong metal armor on and take quite a beating. I was a fan of the original Wolfenstein and even though this felt like a completely different game from the original (thats actually a good thing tho. Nobody wants 8-bit fps games now. ), it was very enjoyable. I thought this would be a WW2 game, but aside from the beginning, the game actually takes place in the aftermath of the war in which the Nazi's won. The Nazi weaponary in this timeline heavily borrowed from Nikola Tesla. The Tesla grenade was good, but my favorite weapon the Laserkraftwerk was the best. Throughout the game you keep finding upgrades for it too.
      I still need to play Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, the stand alone DLC game. Its a prequel that takes place during WW2, so I know there will wont be a laser gun in it for me, but I'm sure I'll find some other favorite weapon.

      The new weapons and gear seem cool. I wish the game would emphasize more on the plot and new locations. I was hoping to see a new world shown in this trailer, but it doesn't. Instead it looks like they added some more missions to the earth and the moon and added 1 strike and a raid that I'll probably never complete. But at least there is all new raid gear for the hard core players. I'll definitely play this when it comes out to see how the new story missions are but I wish they would add match making to the raids and weekly missions tho to make the game a bit more enjoyable.

      It will be a while before I get to this one. Too many things coming out tomorrow. GTA V and the next episode of GW2 Living World.
