Xbox One can do 'nothing' until patch is installed

We already knew that the Xbox One was going to have a patch on day one, so will the PlayStation 4. While the PlayStation 4 will let you start playing games while the patch downloads, the Xbox One will be useless. The guys ove...

Nintendo patches Pokemon X and Y, fixes massive bug photo
Nintendo patches Pokemon X and Y, fixes massive bug
by Chris Carter

A short while after Pokemon X and Y launched, players uncovered a pretty nasty bug -- if you save outside in Lumiose City, your game may freeze, and you might be unable to load up your save. In a title like Pokemon where hundreds of hours are easy to burn, this can be devastating.

Thankfully, Nintendo recognized the problem, and has applied a patch to rectify the issue. All you have to do is load up the 3DS eShop, go to the updates portion, and apply the patch. I've been steadily making my way through Pokemon Y over the past week and a half, and currently I have around 320 caught Pokemon in the Kalos region alone. How are you guys doing?

Dota 2 6.79: Patch Analysis: Heroes

Ok, so I tried to cram all of this information into a single post, but it hit the post character limit. So with the General and Item changes out of the way, here they are, the Hero balance changes from the recent Dota 2 6.79 patch. Did you unlearn what you knew about gold, day/night, the jungle, and lane equilibrium? Good, now prepare to do the same for just about ALL THE HEROES.
