Every so often, League of Legends puts out temporary ?featured game modes? that can be so much fun they leave fans begging Riot to keep them in the game permanently. Others just fizzle out. ?Black Market Brawl? sounds like it's going to be in the first group.
I don't like Destiny, but this PS4 bundle for the somewhat controversialThe Taken King expansion looks alright as far as skinned consoles go. Plus, white. Wish my PS4 was white. I wouldn't always lose the controller in my black entertainment center or on my black coffee table (I don't see well).
Aside from the 500gb PS4, the bundle includes, "a physical copy of Destiny: The Taken King Legendary Edition, which includes Destiny, Expansions I and II, and The Taken King." Plus some extra baubles: "[T]hree exotic Guardian class items with XP bonuses, three classic-specific emotes, three armor shaders, as well as the early access weapons pack." Riveting.
Fallout 4 nabbed the Game Critics Award for "Best of Show" during E3 2015. Each year select outlets vote to award the best games that are in, "hands-on playable form" at the show. See a collage here of voting outlets. We're on it; Jordan heads up our voting. We're basically the only square logo, hah.
Fallout 4 took three wins in all, tying it with Uncharted 4. Star Wars Battlefront somehow took two awards. Sony Computer Entertainment led publishers with five wins (to EA's 4, Bethesda's 3) and the PlayStation 4 had the most winning titles at 12 (to PC's 9, Xbox One's 7, and Wii U's 1).
"As a result of these governance systems... Verbal abuse has dropped by more than 40%, and 91.6% of negative players change their act and never commit another offense after just one reported penalty." ...
Tycho: Yes, that’s correct: Kim Swift of Portal, Left 4 Dead, and Quantum Conundrum fame will illuminate the gathered throng. She’s been over at Amazon for awhile now, working on “AAA PC Games,” but nobody knows what that means yet. She also invented the Companion Cube, which all by itself places her in the Internet Pantheon. We’ve been trying to match schedules for years now, years plural, and I’m glad we were finally able to work it out. (CW)TB
What? Did you think we were lying when we said there'd be an imminent Xbox Ultimate Game Sale? We love you too much to lie to you. We're like that riddle about the two guards at a forked road leading to paradise or death, except we're both guards and we always tell the truth.
The point is that an Ultimate Game Sale is happening right now, and you could save some dough on Xbox games. Alternatively, you could turn your nose up at the offers and think "Nah, none of that really appeals to me." We don't know your life, man. Only you do. Take care of yourself.
Here's the full list of deals for Xbox One and Xbox 360. The discounts shown are for Xbox Live Gold subscribers; Xbox Live Silver accounts can usually expect prices to be around ten percent more.
Ubisoft has another Rayman in the works for smartphones and tablets. It's pretty! Almost as pretty as Rayman Legends which, despite being phenomenal, not enough folks played.
This time, players will be able to move freely through the world on their quest to find and save the Incrediballs. Ubisoft Montpellier is calling Rayman Adventures "an HD console-quality experience on mobile," which is... yeah. I like console-quality experiences on consoles, personally.

Starting tomorrow, io9 will join hundreds of thousands of fans in San Diego for the biggest event in pop culture: San Diego Comic-Con. And if you're lucky enough to be there too, then there's plenty to see. Here are the events fans absolutely should not miss at Comic-Con.
In 2011, hardcore fans started a video series chronicling tricks and glitches possible during the Halo: Reach campaign. Today, that series draws to a close with a new, over-the-top conclusion that tests how far Halo's artificial intelligence can go.
