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

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.

No Man’s Sky “Day Zero” update suggests deleting early save games

One of the most anticipated PS4 and PC games of the year is still to be launched this Tuesday, but its developers are already announcing a "Day Zero" update. Yes, No Man's Sky, which was delayed no less than 2 months, will be at version 1.03 when regular players log into the game August 9th. Those, however, who have been playing an early copy of the game are highly advised to delete their saved games when updating. It might be a shocking recommendation, but developer Hello Games promises it will be worth the separation anxiety.

NASA’s Mars Rover game puts players on the Red Planet

As of today, NASA’s Curiosity rover has been rolling around Mars for four years. To coincide with that, NASA has released a new side-scrolling game called Mars Rover for iOS, Android, and desktop that takes players to the Red Planet…a version of it, anyway. The game tasks players with operating the rover as it finds and identifies substances like water -- if you're not careful, the rover may get a flat tire, get stuck in a crater, or tip over backwards.
