This morning I woke up to the news that Mewtwo, not Ho-Oh, has been released in Japan during Yokohama’s big Pokémon GO stadium event, the culmination of a week-long Pikachu Outbreak that also featured rare spawns and new raid bosses.

Mewtwo will be out globally “in the coming weeks” in Pokémon GO, part of a new exclusive raid system that requires you to beat other raids before being invited to the Legendary battle.

Today wraps up one of the largest community events in World of Warcraft, a gathering that has drawn thousands of people together over the past four years and will raise more than a thousand dollars for charity this year.

During the closing ceremony today, players will pack the stands of the Tournament grounds in such numbers that no seats will be available, forcing some to hover or to perch on the roof.

There have been varying reports on whether football participation has been affected by years of reporting on concussions, and their-long term impact on players. Today, the Journal of the American Medical Association has posted results of a study regarding the prevalence of chronic traumatic encephalopathy, better known by its abbreviation CTE, that is going to give a lot of parents pause about whether their kids should play football -- and maybe give a lot of people pause about whether they should enjoy watching it.

It’s genuinely hard to believe that three years ago I was playing the original Destiny beta, and here we are about to test out the sequel for the first time. I remember being deeply impressed with the gunplay in the alpha and beta three years ago, and it’s a game that anyone should be able to pick up and play with great success, especially in an early test before all the RPG elements start coming into play and you have to learn all the nitty gritty details about currencies and light levels and what not.

Tencent Holdings, China’s most successful gaming and social media company, is in a tough spot after the government criticized it for fueling gaming addiction among minors.

Although Tencent swiftly introduced a series of measures to limit the game time of young users by automatically logging players under 12 off after one hour of play time each day, they may not go far enough as Beijing prepares to introduce rules that will reign in the country’s $28 billion gaming industry, affecting not only Tencent but every company eying a slice of the world’s largest gaming market.

Over the last few years, I’ve drawn quite a few comparisons between Diablo 3 and Destiny, two very different games from the outside, but ones that shared many similarities, and struggles. But after playing a lot of Diablo 3 the last few days after the release of the Necromancer, there’s one last thing I want to see pulled into Destiny 2.

It seems as if major store closing announcements are becoming a nearly daily occurrence. Bebe, Guess, Wet Seal and The Limited have all chosen to go this route--and it seems like both Sears and Radio Shack are headed there as well; they just haven't made it official.

Overwatch’s Anniversary Event is still going on, and will be for the next few weeks, but right after kick off, fans made their feelings known about the limited time in which they were given to land 11 new Legendary skins, something that is practically mathematically impossible, even with constant play. And as someone who shells out actual cash for new skins during each event, I found that I was getting less for the same amount of boxes this time around, still missing 7 out of 11 skins even after purchasing a hundred.
