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.

Final Fantasy 15 said to be delayed until late November

Bad news for fans eager to finally get their hands on the long-awaited Final Fantasy XV: it appears the game is being delayed from its original September 30th release date until November 29th. Reports have emerged that developer Square Enix recently notified GameStop execs of the delay. While this isn't the first time a big-name title has missed its fall release date, it's certainly nothing new for FF15 specifically, which has been in works for some 10 years now.

Even iOS’s Siri is in on the Pokemon Go trend

While not quite everyone in the world has access to access to play Pokemon Go just yet, it's still quickly become one of the most downloaded apps of all time on iOS, and continues to rake in the money from purchases. There's no doubt it's the game of summer, and maybe even of 2016. It makes sense then that Siri, Apple's virtual assistant on iOS, even has knowledge of Pokemon Go, as it's been discovered that it will make a number of humorous responses when asked about the game.

GoldenEye 007 gets HD remake as Source engine mod

First released in 1997 on the Nintendo 64, GoldenEye 007 became an instant classic. Its multiplayer features were unprecedented on consoles at the time, and the game alone was worth the price of the N64. Even before the original Halo, GoldenEye 007 was the forefather of console FPSes. Now, 19 years later, and with 10 years of work from dedicated fans, a complete HD remake is available on the PC, built with Valve’s Source engine.
