“Playing with Power” book to keep NES Classic company

Last week, Nintendo made the rather odd but nonetheless well-received announcement of a new-old console, the NES Classic. A smaller rendition of gaming history's most iconic console, the NES Classic pays homage to at least old school 30 games built into the console itself.

Pokemon GO Cheats and Tips : catch em all (almost) every time

Why Nintendo deserves credit for Pokemon GO

Why Nintendo deserves credit for Pokemon GO

It should have been clear from the start that Nintendo did not create Pokemon GO. The Pokemon Company did that with Niantic, a company spun off from Google after creating the game Ingress, a game on whose engine Pokemon GO is built.

These extremely strange elements in the game are one of the biggest motivators for users to get out and walk - long distances for big-power Pokemon. Three tiers of eggs exist - 2km, 5km, and 10km, and it's generally understood that each egg level's distance suggests the power of the resulting Pokemon - better Pokemon for longer distances. Over the past couple of weeks we've gathered some insight on the best way for users to hatch these eggs, as well as a chart showing which Pokemon come from which eggs.
