Titanfall is set to add an in-game currency that you can use to buy Burn Cards and Titan Insignias.
An update will introduce the Black Market, where you can get access to additional customisation options for your Titan alongside the game-changing Burn Cards.
The Burn Cards will be sold in packs, each focused on a specific theme to enable you to choose what type you need. XP boost, Pilot and Titan advantages are all mentioned, with the hope being this change will enable you to pick cards that suit your play style.
In terms of how you'll earn credits to buy these packs, fulfilling a number of different criteria will see you awarded with money to spend. Winning a match, completing a match and having your first victory of the day will all see you pick up points, as will completing daily challenges and selling Burn Cards you don't want. Additionally, once you hit level 50 a percentage of earned XP will be converted to credits.
It's almost our birthday! Happy birthday to us*!

Following the reveal of Techies at The International 4, Dota 2 is one step closer to catching up to the original DotA’s character count — and once it does, Valve will introduce new characters.
Confirming obvious suspicions, Valve’s Erik Johnson told IGN that, yes, Valve plans to create new Heroes for Dota 2. When asked about adding new Valve-created characters once Dota 2 catches up to the original DotA's huge character roster, Valve’s Erik Johnson said, “Yes. We just keep going. Dota never stops."
Characters currently not part of the ever-updating Dota 2 include Pit Lord, Arc Warden, Winter Wyvern, Oracle, and Techies. Eventually, "There’ll be new heroes, there’ll be new changes to the game," Johnson said. Moving onto Dota 3, he explained, doesn't "really make sense.... There’s no point where we say, ‘Alright, we’re done. Let’s move on to the next one.’”
Riot Games is fining the European League of Legends team H2k-Gaming $300 USD for exhibiting "unsportsmanlike behavior" in an official EU Challenger Series game.
According to the ruling, H2k-Gaming violated the official Challenger Series rules by intentionally prolonging a game against their opponent GG Call Nash on July 10. In the game H2k-Gaming had a clear lead on their opponent, but purposefully built ineffective items on their champions, such as building a melee item for a mage, and wasting summoner spells that have high cooldown times while alone.

Predators writer Michael Finch is penning the screenplay for the Deus Ex movie adaption.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, CBS Films picked Finch to take over writing duties for C. Robert Cargill and Scott Derrickson, who also was originally attached to direct but is too busy making Doctor Strange at Marvel. Roy Lee and Adrian Askarieh are producing, with John Middleton executive producing.
The Deus Ex film will be based off 2011's Deus Ex: Human Revolution, with the project starring Adam Jensen. While there's no word on how closely the movie will follow the Square Enix game, it's understood that the plot will follow Jensen — who will be mechanically augmented — unraveling a worldwide conspiracy.
