The Division DLC delayed as ‘lingering issues’ get precedence

Ubisoft says that ‘lingering issues’ are necessitating a delay in the launch of The Division DLCs, with Survival now being slated to release separately from Update 1.4. The update will be released this upcoming October, dealing with bugs and more, while Survival’s release has been pushed back to some time later this year and, as a result, the “Last Stand” release has been pushed back to some time in early 2017. Specific dates haven't been provided at this time.

‘Below’ game delayed again, no one knows when it will launch

Capybara Games has announced another delay for ‘Below,’ and this time it isn’t giving a new future release date. The company says that a lot of soul searching has led it to this decision, and that rather than giving eager fans another release date that doesn’t pan out, it is simply ‘going dark’ while it works on the project. The next time we hear from the company, it says, we’ll know there’s finally a release date to be given and that, hopefully, it’ll be the final one.

Pokemon GO is kinda boring

Pokemon GO is kinda boring

I remember being about 12 when Pokemon became a thing in the U.S. One day all the neighborhood kids were talking about pocket monsters and assorted oddities which I, having been homeschooled at the time, knew nothing about. I was quick to pick up on their excitement, though, and soon came into possession of my first Pokemon item: a small Pikachu stapler I found lying in the grass at a nearby park. For a whole day, that little stapler was my prized possession.

Amiga software library plays right in your browser

If you were around back in the '80s and '90s and were old enough to play any of the games of the time, you will probably remember the Amiga computer system that was around. I remember those things being very expensive at the time and I can recall wanting one very badly. I never got one and played Nintendo or Sega mostly during that time. The thing I remember most about the Amiga is all the awesome games with the great graphics for the time.

Pokemon Go has a new nearby tracker in testing now

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.

Pokemon GO update tries to prevent driving while playing

Pokemon GO update tries to prevent driving while playing

Niantic has pushed out another Pokemon GO update, and first among the changes is an effort to curb driving while playing. After updating, players will be reminded not to play Pokemon GO if they’re “traveling above a certain speed,” per Niantic’s wording. The game will require the player to confirm they aren’t driving in order to keep playing, presumably when the game detects they’re going over that ‘certain speed.’ As well, the update fixes some more bugs, enables nickname changes, and more.
