Pokemon GO prep for inevitable Easter Event

Pokemon GO prep for inevitable Easter Event

How we prepare for the Easter Event in Pokemon GO starts with Ratata and Pidgey and ends with some of the most high-level Pokemon in the game. The methodology is legendary for the most hardcore of Pokemon GO players. The way to get the most XP out of a single Lucky Egg has been a question pondered by all those well on their way to the promised land: Level 40. Once there, the highest-level Pokemon in Pokemon GO can be attained - with Bunny Ears, we're hoping.

Snipperclips review: A great Nintendo Switch co-op puzzle game

Snipperclips review: A great Nintendo Switch co-op puzzle game

Despite my love for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and its numerous brain-teasing shrines, I have to say that I’ve never been much of a puzzle game fan. Video games, in my mind, have always been about the adventure or competition or relaxation. Working through puzzles never seemed like something I’d want to do to wind down at the end of the day. As it turns out, I was wrong about that - I just needed a game like Snipperclips to show me the light.

Niantic’s Pokemon GO Easter surprise: Virtual Trespassing Lawsuits!

Niantic’s Pokemon GO Easter surprise: Virtual Trespassing Lawsuits!

This week it's become clear that Niantic isn't easily going to duck a number of lawsuits filed against them in courts in both the United States and abroad. In The Hague (in the Netherlands), authorities were successful in pressuring Niantic to remove virtual monsters from certain areas of their beloved city. Just before a court date set for October of 2016, Dutch authorities cancelled Niantic's appointment in favor of a (then pending) simpler solution. Whether or not this same sort of solution is being sought here in the United States - we'll see very soon.

Zelda producer suggests open world gameplay might be here to stay

Zelda producer suggests open world gameplay might be here to stay

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild represents a pretty radical departure for the series with its vast open world. It seems to have worked too, with many reviewers (including yours truly) praising this new direction for the Zelda series. What does this mean for the future, though? Was Breath of the Wild a one-off with a return to the old formula planned for future games, or is the style of Breath of the Wild here to stay?

Nintendo Switch owners reporting problems with warping tablets

The launch issues fans have been experiencing with the Nintendo Switch have been fairly well documented, but for the most part, these problems have been minor. Issues like Joy-Con or WiFi connectivity seem to field most of the complaints, and while those are certainly annoying, they can also be dealt with. However, one new problem could prove to be quite a bit more serious than other issues that have been reported thus far.

Pokemon GO update: the Easter event we’ve been waiting for

The Pokemon GO news world should not be surprised to find that this week there's chatter around the possibility of a major Easter Event. The folks at Niantic are likely ruminating over the exact set of temporary bonuses they should release during the next event - double-xp, half-distance eggs, and half-distance Pokemon Buddy Candy notwithstanding. To make certain we're making the most of the time we're about to have, we've created a set of "need to know" points for Pokemon GO players of all sorts. Whether the event coming up next ends up starting tomorrow or three weeks from now, it's important that we keep these bits and pieces in mind.

Where is Nintendo Switch’s Virtual Console?

Where is Nintendo Switch’s Virtual Console?

The honeymoon is beginning to feel like it's over. Don't get me wrong, I love my Nintendo Switch and I'm excited for its future, but with my time in Zelda winding down, it's becoming more obvious that there just isn't that much to play on the console. I have a few Switch games and I've been enjoying my time with all of them, but nothing aside from Breath of the Wild strikes me as something I must spend my time on when I have a gaming PC and a PS4 calling me back.

Major Pokemon GO update could change the (end)game, bring Legendary monsters

A major update for the game Pokemon GO is in the works, one that could change the way most players play the game. The game’s future could well turn from a solitary adventure to one in which collaboration is key - and in more than just battling Pokemon Gyms. An update that will come in the relatively near future includes connections over long distances. These connections will be based on Pokemon GO factions - teams blue, yellow, and red.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild update improves unstable frame rate

Zelda: Breath of the Wild update improves unstable frame rate

If you read our review of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, you'd know that even though it's one of the best video games ever made, it isn't without its problems. The biggest problems come in the form of occasional frame drops, which happen more frequently when the Nintendo Switch is docked. The Wii U versions isn't safe from this either, so if you've played Breath of the Wild, there's a good chance you've experienced this problem.
