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.

Pokemon GO players get a German bridge to themselves

Pokemon GO players get a German bridge to themselves

Pokemon GO players in Germany now have a bridge (mostly) to themselves, a move made by the Mayor of Dusseldorf to address the large number of players who gather in the area. As it turns out, the Girardet bridge — which is normally open to both cars and people — has a Pokestop on both ends. Because of this, players tend to congregate on the bridge, and during those times it can become dangerous or difficult for cars to get through. As a solution, the city has put traffic directors in place to, when necessary, close down the bridge to vehicular traffic.

Some do see them as mere extensions of their smartphones but others also want these wearables to do almost everything by themselves. One thing most seem to agree on, however, is that smartwatches aren't exactly the best devices for gaming. Square Enix apparently didn't get the memo and has, as earlier reported, launched Cosmos Rings, a game that is played solely on the Apple Watch. No, not a companion watch app for a mobile game but a 100% Apple Watch only game.
