Pokemon Uranium removed to “respect” Nintendo’s wishes

Pokemon Uranium removed to “respect” Nintendo’s wishes

Pokemon is one of the most known, beloved, and perhaps even reviled gaming franchises, so it's not really surprising that it has no small amount of clones, unofficial spinoffs, and even pirated copies of the game. While a good number of those have no qualms operating under shady legal, sometimes even illegal grounds, the creators of Pokemon Uranium, one of hottest new "clones" to have suddenly popped up, aren't so comfortable about it. As such, they have taken down the game, which has garnered more than 1.5 million downloads already, after working on it for nine long years.

Pokemon Uranium is a fan-made game that looks official

There have been hoards of Pokemon games made over the years and some of them are very hard to find today if you want to play them.

Pokemon Go has a new nearby tracker in testing now

Pokemon Go launched with a system to track what Pokemon are nearby your location, but that system broke shortly after the game launched. This is in part what led to the hoards of third party tracking services such as Pokevision that have since been banned. The original nearby system showed footprints on the images with three meaning far away and one meaning close.

Super Mario Maker goes Hello Kitty with new costumes

Super Mario Maker goes Hello Kitty with new costumes

Super Mario Maker is a very cool game that allows fans to design their own Mario levels that look like games played in the classic Nintendo days of yore. One of the cool things about the game is that you can get different costumes that make your on screen character look like characters from other franchises. That means instead of wearing suspenders and a mustache, you can play as someone else and still do all those Mario things like whack floating blocks.

Mod lets you play Fallout 4 as Dogmeat

Mod lets you play Fallout 4 as Dogmeat

I am a huge fan of Fallout 4, but the companions in the game leave a lot to be desired in my book. I find most of them to be more of a hindrance than a help, they always block doors or walk into my line of fire like morons. I've played mostly with Paladin Danse since he can actually fight if you need to. The problem is he isn't very stealthy leaving you basically unable to sneak up on people, especially if your power armor has the stealth boy mod. A new mod for the game has been unveiled, and it lets you play the game as one of the companions, specifically the cute and ferocious Dogmeat.

Popular NES “shooter” Duck Hunt gets an unofficial VR remix

Back in the days of the NES (Famicom in other parts of the world), there were already shooting games. But not quite like the FPS titles of today. With the limitations of technology back then, most of those games were limited to billboard and arcade types of gameplay. But at least they had a (light) gun! One of the most popular to hit the cartridges was Duck Hunt. With the new dawn of virtual reality, it just seemed fitting to give an homage to the title, which is exactly what New Jersey Institute of Techonology student Joseph Delgado did.

Minecraft Overworld updates to give more ways to make machines

Minecraft Overworld updates to give more ways to make machines

To say that there has been an explosion of digital creativity ever since Minecraft launch would probably be an accurate assessment. Nevermind recreations of locations, both actual and fictional, Minecraft has given imaginative and passionate people the tools to create almost anything inside the pixelated, blocky world, from simplistic computers to gigantic phones that do communicate with the real world. Now Microsoft, Minecraft's new curator, is preparing an update that could boost that creativity even further. With the upcoming Overworld patch, players will have more tools at their disposal to invent almost anything.
