Pokemon GO Tips and Secrets 2 : Level UP

Pokemon GO Tips and Secrets 2 : Level UP

I've been playing Pokemon GO for weeks. Today I'm writing another (a second) collection of tips for everyday Pokemon GO trainers - as well as a couple of secrets some trainers might not yet be aware of. This collection of tips will help users level up, find Pokemon they've been searching for, and avoid common (and not so common) pitfalls of the game. Today we begin with PokeStops, the place where users attain items without paying real cash.

Pokemon Go used to lure players into armed robbery

Pokemon Go used to lure players into armed robbery

A malicious group sets up an elaborate trap in order to entice hopeful Pokemon trainers to venture into shady spots and corners. They then spring up on the unsuspecting victims and quickly deprive them of their valuable possessions. That may seem like a script out of a Team Rocket heist, it is actually happening in the real world, in more dangerous and life threatening ways. Missouri police report arresting four suspects who have allegedly abused Pokemon Go's game mechanics to lure and then rob players of more than just their Pokemon.

Pokemon Go to get trading, might come to HoloLens

Pokemon Go to get trading, might come to HoloLens

Pokemon Go is, of course, the biggest news for the past few days, leading to some amusing and not so amusing tales. And the narrative is far from over. Dipping into the less serious side of the AR game, developers Niantic Labs shared some insight into the future of the still newborn title. Trading Pokemon, one of the favorite aspects of the game for hard core players, will indeed be coming, though the timetable for that hasn't been hinted yet. What Niantic is teasing, however, is the possibility of Pokemon Go coming to standalone AR headsets, like, for example, the Microsoft HoloLens.

Pokemon GO rollout ‘paused’ while server woes are fixed

If you're located in a nation where Pokemon GO hasn't yet launched and you're chomping at the bit to get access, we've got some bad news for you: the game's international rollout has been 'paused' for now so that the game's server issues can be corrected. The news was confirmed by Niantic CEO John Hanke recently. He specifically mentioned the rollout in the UK and the Netherlands as being paused, though it appears the expansion has been stopped in some other planned destinations temporarily, as well.

Fruit Ninja for HTC Vive turns you into a virtual slasher

Fruit Ninja for HTC Vive turns you into a virtual slasher

One of the biggest problems with consumer virtual reality products today is input. While the headset immerses you in a world that almost looks real, the illusion is shattered when you try to reach out for something with your hands. Because you can't, unless you're wearing one of those expensive or experimental (or both) gloves. The HTC Vive's and Oculus Rift's controllers are basically sticks that make you feel like you're holding a wand or a sword. Which, in retrospect, actually makes it perfect for a game like Fruit Ninja. You (or someone else) asked, and they heard. Fruit Ninja is now on VR!

Resident Evil 4 for PS4 and Xbox One will release August 30

In late February, Capcom announced that it would be releasing Resident Evil 4, 5, and 6 this year for the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. All has been quiet since, up until today.

When that day roles around, fans will be able to get the title for their newest Xbox or PS4, though it won’t be remastered for the latest hardware. It will, however, include all of the game's bonus content.

Pokemon GO US release: Download it now on iOS and Android

The time has finally come and you can start catching 'em all. Pokemon GO is now available in the US for everyone to download and try to be a Pokemon Master. Or maybe just see whether all the fuss and hype matches up to reality. Available for free on Android and iOS, the augmented reality game will, of course, have its fair (or unfair) share of in-app purchases. But Pokemon fans might not mind in exchange for leaving out their childhood, and not-so-childhood, dreams.

Pokemon GO is a go, but only in Australia, New Zealand

Pokemon GO is a go, but only in Australia, New Zealand

That didn't take too long. While we were still busy musing the date for the launch of Pokemon GO, Niantic Labs was apparently busy actually launching it. The much awaited, but still doubted, "sort of" augmented reality game is finally rolling out to everyone. And by "everyone", we mean "everyone who happens to be located in Australia and New Zealand". That isn't completely surprising, as these two countries did get the trial run first before anyone else. It does mean that it will only be a matter of time before it becomes available to everyone in the world, legitimately or otherwise.

Xbox Live wheelchair avatars will arrive soon

A tweeted suggestion led to a petition recommendation, and that petition recommendation led to a surprise announcement: Xbox Live will offer wheelchair avatars in the future, and it sounds like the feature isn't a long way off. The wheelchair avatar plans were first confirmed in a tweet by Phil Spencer, who said, “No petition needed, we hear you. This is something that we’ve already look at, not far off." A couple sample photos of the avatars were also shared.
