Over the weekend a twitter account belonging to Riot Game’ president and co-founder Mark Merrill appears to have been compromised. A hacker using the handle ‘Jason’ took control of Mr.Merrill’s account on Saturday and posted several images and details for a cancelled &unannounced League of Legends trading card game called ‘League of Legends Supremacy’.

Supposedly the game had been completed by the folks over at Riot Games but for unknown reasons they decided to scrap the project before announcing it. Jason had threatened to release a 200MB zip file containing several images from the project but stopped short of doing so. Instead he provided twitter users with copies of the in-game text from the project, several templates and a single image of a supposed login screen.

It is unknown if Jason actually possessed a working version of League of Legends: Supremacy or if he was simply in possession of leaked screenshots. After the Merrill regained control of his account he tweeted that Riot Games works on ‘a variety of ideas… that may never see the light of day.”

Now 15 years later Nintendo revitalizes the franchise with the first fully 3D handheld title in series history, Pokemon X & Y. Can it possibly hold up to the fond memories I have of raising my first Charmander in Pallet town over a decade ago? Our in-depth review is probably a week away but here are my impressions of the first five hours.

There’s a lot to experience in the latest iterations of Pokemon, and I’ll save some of opinions until I am further into the game, so here’s four things I’ve enjoyed so far.Read More
