League of Legends to Punish Bad Behavior, Again

Just like any decent teacher or parent would, rewarding good conduct is something that should apply to all facets of our lives. And Riot Games, developer of League of Legends, apparently thinks so too. Riot recently announced that reputed bullies and troublemakers who take part in the online game, will be banned from receiving brand new updated content beginning in 2016.

The update in question is a new loot system, in which chests and keys drop onto the battlefield upon completion of the round, with the “treasure” being new playable characters and skin unlockables. However, only the well-behaved players will have access to all the prizes. “If you’re a player who is punished for toxicity or intentional feeding or so on, you can’t get loot,” lead game designer of social systems at Riot Games, Jeffrey Lin, told Polygon. “We really want the system to be a reward. It’s a new carrot for playing with friends and for being a positive player in the game. We’ve never been able to give skins for free before in League of Legends, so this is our way of saying, ‘Hey, if you’re a positive player in the game, here’s your way of earning something just for playing the game and being awesome.”

League of Legends proudly displays a zero-tolerance to any online harassment. In the past, Riot Games have fought hard to keep their game as pleasant and agreeable as possible, by implementing a psychological test to any players considered “toxic.” The notion of being open and accessible for everyone even extends to the game’s financial side, as LOL is one of many MMO games currently harnessing new online payment methods like that of paysafecard (which allows players to purchase in-game items without the need of a credit or debit card).

Harassment in the gaming world is a prevalent and real threat to many people, and according to a video released by GameLoading in 2014, it appears women receive a large majority of online abuse. In the following video, many women discuss their struggles working in the online and video game industry, telling of strong sexism and even terrifying threats in their own homes. Be sure to watch the video titled “Harassment In The Games World” below.

After the recent port to PS5, Microsoft is “really pleased” with the overall sales and performance of Sea of Thieves. As a result, more people are playing the Xbox and PC versions as well. Matt Booty, president of game content and studios at Microsoft Gaming, said this:. He also said that the success of the series means it can grow and that more money should be spent on a Variety podcast interview.

Microsoft is bringing four games that used to only be available on Xbox to other systems. Sea of Thieves was the last of these games to come out. The others are Pentiment, Grounded, and Hi-Fi Rush. Even though things have been going well lately, Booty says that more ports will be dealt with “case-by-case.”

News spread before the port came out that Sea of Thieves was being used as a “key test” to see if more Xbox-only games would be ported to PS5, PS4, and Xbox One. In May 2024, the game was the best-selling PS Store game in both Europe and the US. It also did well in the weekly sales charts.

Aside from the four games that have already been ported to Xbox, nothing else has been officially confirmed. However, news reports say that a lot of exclusive games may be about to come to other platforms. Some say that PS5 games like Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, Starfield, and a rumored remaster of Halo: Combat Evolved are all being thought about.

The upcoming game from the creators of the Danganronpa series has found a publisher in Sony subsidiary Aniplex. However, it’s worth noting that it won’t be initially released on the PS5. It is highly likely that The Hundred Line: Last Defense Academy will be released on Sony’s system at a later date, just like Master Detective Archives: Rain Code in October. However, the development team is currently focusing on prioritizing the release of their latest title on the Nintendo Switch and PC.

Described as a strategy game, the title allows players to step into the shoes of teenager Takumi Sumino, who resides in the perpetually secure Tokyo Residential Complex. When monsters suddenly unleash chaos upon the town, Takumi finds himself thrust into the Last Defense Academy. His mission? To protect the school alongside 14 other students for a grueling 100 days.

As one would anticipate, alongside the strategic gameplay, it is crucial to foster strong relationships with your comrades. Moreover, the outcome of the game can vary greatly, with a staggering 100 possible endings contingent upon the choices you make. We will reach out to Aniplex to inquire about the possibility of a PS5 port. However, it is important to note that Aniplex operates independently from PlayStation, as it falls under the Sony Music umbrella.

Most new games these days have some kind of photography feature, so it’s hard to remember a time before Photo Modes. Some developers don’t think it’s important for players to be able to take pictures right away, so the feature is added later. One great example of this is Alan Wake 2, which now has Photo Mode thanks to a new update that is now available.

If you look at the trailer above, you can see that you can really get creative with your photos by adding cool borders, overlays, and filters. We always like photo modes, where you can move different lights around in the scene. As the video shows, Remedy really lets you use your imagination with the different colors and lighting props.
