: NHL 17 team ratings have been revealed

The hockey season is still a few months away, but EA Sports has its opinions on how each team is shaping up. With the NHL 17 beta officially out tomorrow, we got our hands on it a bit early and took a look at each team's ratings.

While our poor multiplayer opponent patiently waited, we flipped through every single team to see their stats for offense, defense, and goaltending. The Tampa Bay Lightning lead the offensive category with a 93. The San Jose Sharks blue liners are the best defensive group with a 94. And, the pairing of Henrik Lundqvist and Antti Raanta for the New York Rangers make up the league's best goaltending duo with a rating of 95.

Interestingly enough, only one team has a category that dips into the yellow color that denotes a score of less than 80. It's not a bad team, either. It's the defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins. The Pens' goalies are ranked 79, probably because Marc-Andre Fleury is coming off of a concussion and his backup is mostly unproven (even though he just won a ring). No respect for the champs!

We also had a chance to go hands-on with NHL 17 back at E3. Here's our preview detailing what this game is doing different.

: The Sonic and Dead Rising movie folks are making a live-action Life is Strange

Life, uh, finds a be strange. Episodic hella-teen adventure Life is Strange is getting a live-action series, replacing the choice-based game with some pre-scripted teen drama, like a second Butterfly Effect (god that movie fucking suckeddd). Unless it's some weird Quantum Break-style choose-your-own adventure, but that would be expensive and unappreciated outside of the confines of a video game.

Square Enix is working with Legendary Digital Studios and DJ2 Entertainment to produce the live-action series, which will see a digital-only release. Legendary Digital made the Dead Rising movies on Crackle, while DJ2 is working with Sony Pictures on the live-action/CGI blended Sonic the Hedgehog movie. We are truly blessed.

"We’re proud and excited to be working alongside Legendary to realise a new version of Arcadia Bay and Blackwell Academy complete with our rich cast of realistic, believable characters and memorable events," Square Enix vice president for brand and European marketing Jon Brooke said. Legendary is meeting with writers at the moment.

It's a weird bit of reverse cannibalization, given how heavily Life is Strange draws from American television representation of the pacific northwest, and I think you lose something when you sacrifice player agency, though the show could obviously be done well. I just don't get the point and don't have high hopes. Maybe the writers can touch up some of the cringe-worthy "teen" dialogue, for cereal.

: Oh Great, We're Naming Our Children After Pokémon Now

Pokémon Go has been responsible for a few unseemly things since being released: armed robberies , a murder hoax , car crashes , and sending people towards a nuclear disaster site . Now it's even ruining future generations.


: We're getting Yakuza 0 on January 24

Yakuza 0 has been out in Japan since before Donald Trump was even running for president, let alone about to be one of two choices for the office, but the Americas and Europe will not get to play Yakuza 0 until January 24, 2017, a couple days after President Trump is sworn in.

As Kyle noted when we got word Sega was bringing it over in "early 2017," "The prequel is set in the 1980s and lets players see what Kiryu and Majima's lives were like as foot soldiers, long before they became the renowned yakuza we've seen in previous games." Sega is localizing the game itself and only releasing it westward for PS4 (it was on PS3 in Japan).

Meanwhile, Yakuza 6: Poetry of Life hits Japan in December. It's, the "final chapter" for Kazuma Kiryu. If Sega brings that one over too, you'll get to see his beginning and end.

Until then, I recommend watching Pale Flower to hold you over.

: News Post: A Study in Saffron

Brian: I've spent the last couple of weekends wandering around my neighborhood with my phone out, collecting Pokemon. It's seemed a popular past-time and a pleasant one. My usually quiet, keep-to-yourself suburban community has become a swarm of teens, adults and families buzzing around downtown Redmond, sharing smiles and hunting tips. And while I've spent the whole of this past week or so wearing some kind of yellow shirt (I'm a Hufflepuff, I have a lot of yellow), I found wearing the sample of our Yellow Team tee to be a neon call for pleasant conversation and fun banter. Wearing that…

: After this week, the previous generation versions of Destiny will not be updated

It's a small update (mostly dealing with bugs), but is the last patch that PS3 and Xbox 360 owners will get for Destiny. As previously announced, Bungie notes that the current-gen versions (PS4, Xbox One) are the only viable options going forward, as the last generation is being left out of the Rise of Iron expansion entirely.

I've said it many times before, but this is finally a turning point for the series, as the hardware limitations of older consoles have held the game back considerably since launch. Bungie has frequently complained about memory problems when working on updates, citing the PS3 and 360 as frequent sources of strife, given that there has to be parity between all four platforms.

But no more! If you intend to upgrade at some point and you're an avid Destiny player, I think now is the time.

: Dildos here! Get your Pokemon dildos here!

Sure, you've got your local gym on lock with a devastating Kabutops, your place of employ fortuitously is dropping lures like stacks to bring in the foot traffic, maybe you've even laid some pipe with the Pokemon Go dating app.

But have you almost decapitated a Squirtle with your vagina?

That's the question posed by the "Pokemoan" line of the Etsy shope GeekySexToys, which has about 100 of these handmade silicon toys left in stock. There are three starter Pokemon dildos -- Bulby, Charmy, and Squirty -- and a Pikachu tail butt plug. I like the Bulby, which "has a large seed tip making it a very pleasurable friend to have," mostly because there's just a nutsack at the end of it. And the Piky because who doesn't want to fuck a yellow mouse?

May your next Pokemon Go dick appointment be blessed with a rat tail in the bum.
