Pokemon GO Christmas Event: Update reported on Snorlax and XP-bonus

Pokemon GO Christmas Event: Update reported on Snorlax and XP-bonus

Niantic is expected to hold a holiday season event right around Christmas this year for Pokemon GO. Previous events suggest that the next event will have at least two bonuses for users around the world: XP and Stardust. What we're still hammering out is whether Niantic will once again bring a spawn-wave of rare Pokemon like Snorlax, the sleepy Pokemon. This may or may not have to do with the amount of food celebratory Americans will be consuming on the 24th and 25th of December.

Minecraft Pocket Edition greets 5 years with Ender teaser

Minecraft Pocket Edition greets 5 years with Ender teaser

Minecraft was perhaps not intended to be many things when it was first conceived and created. It wasn't intended to be an educational tool, much less a tool for education artificial intelligence. It was certainly not intended, at least at first, to be used on smartphones. And yet, Minecraft now does all that and, in fact, the Pocket Edition just celebrated its fifth year of existence last month. As both a congratulations and a gift to faithful mobile crafters, Mojang, now under the auspices of Microsoft, is teasing what is soon to come: the big version one-point-oh. Also known as, "get your butt kicked by the Ender Dragon".

New Zelda: Breath of the Wild vids finally tease Zelda

New Zelda: Breath of the Wild vids finally tease Zelda

The Legend of Zelda is one of the oddest named video games in history. Although Zelda does play a critical role in the game's world, she isn't exactly the hero(ine) of the stories. That privilege belongs to the (almost always) silent Link. Of course, she's part and parcel of every Zelda game, and though we haven't seen her yet, we presume she's also in the upcoming Breath of the Wild. At The Game Awards, Nintendo finally gives us a glimpse of the princess. Somewhat.

Kojima’s creepy Death Stranding adds Mads Mikkelsen to cast

When you're a famed game designer forever frustrated by having a horror title pulled out from under your feet, you might be forgiven for putting somewhat disturbing teasers of a game still shrouded in mystery. Yes, we are talking about Hideo Kojima's so far bizarre trailers for his upcoming title, Death Stranding. At The Game Awards, where he finally received an industry award without Konami's legal antics, Kojima reveals the game's second trailer, which explicitly names Mads Mikkelsen but implicitly includes Guillermo del Toro.

Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series revealed

What do The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Batman, and Guardians of the Galaxy have in common? Aside from being hit titles in the entertainment market, that is. As of today, all four of the above have a Telltale Game to their name. Or at least soon all four will. At The Game Awards, famed game makers Telltale Games and the comic book giant Marvel announced a collaboration that no one except them saw coming: a game based on a once obscure superhero team that has unexpectedly taken the box office by storm.

Pokemon Go Nearby crosses the pond to the UK

Pokemon Go Nearby crosses the pond to the UK

Pokemon Go is about to get interesting once more. At least for the residents of the UK. As hinted earlier, developer Niantic Labs is starting to rollout its "Nearby" tracking feature outside its initial test area of San Francisco. And one of the first beneficiaries are our friends from across the Atlantic. Now they have a more reliable way of associating which Pokemon to which Pokestops, making it easier to catch just the type that you want. But as with anything, it does come at a cost.

The big problems with Facebook Messenger Instant Games

The big problems with Facebook Messenger Instant Games

In case you missed the news, games are now included on the ever-growing list of Facebook Messenger features. There are a lot of them, too, with arcade classics such as Arkanoid and PAC-MAN joining newer titles like Bust-A-Move Blitz and Words with Friends: Frenzy. It's frankly an excellent idea that makes Messenger more attractive as a chatting platform, but it's not without some glaring flaws at this early stage.

Pokemon GO Secrets of the new Nearby Tracking System

The new Pokemon GO nearby update (with its new tracking system) is server-side, so users may not realize what's been changed this week. As such, today we're dishing what's happened this week for tracking Pokemon in PGO from top to bottom. Pokemon GO's latest update for tracking "Nearby" monsters is a system similar to what was introduced in Beta form earlier this year. It's just a TINY bit different than what it was when it was released in California in its test iteration.
