Destiny 1.0.2 patch now available to improve Engram system

Destiny's legendary 1.0.2 patch is now live across all platforms bringing with it changes to the Engram system that makes it a little easier to get the gear Guardians rightfully deserve. Guardians who now hand in purple engrams will start receiving legendary or better gear, which will make breaking the soft level cap Bungie put in place a little bit easier. The same goes for blue engrams, although the chance to receive a Legendary piece of gear has been increased.

Other improvements Bungie has made to Destiny in today’s patch includes the addition of blue and purple engram drops for completing daily and weekly heroic missions as well as the Vanguard: Tiger Strike Playlist. Tweaks to the Crucible have also been made that include reducing the time limit on certain maps and lowering how often some maps come up in certain playlists.

For full patch notes, head on over to Bungie's official website.

Pokemon X and Y offers free Pumpkaboo for Halloween

It's October, and that means it's time to start rolling out the usual suite of pumpkin-themed treats. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin Pokemon--you know, the ordinary, run-of-the-mill things.

Pokemon X and Y are now offering an extra-large Pumpkaboo Pokemon through the Nintendo Network. He comes with specially themed moves like Treat-or-Treat and Scary Face, and comes with a Rocky Helmet to damage its attacker. The Super-Size version has more HP than the average Pumpkaboo.

Grabbing him also grants you easy entry to the Trick-or-Treat Friendly Online Competition, which requires a Super-Size Gourgeist. You can get the Gourgeist by trading your Pumpkaboo to make it evolve. You can check out details of the promotion at the official site.
