Pokemon GO cheaters are in for a surprise

Wherever you go and whatever the context, there will always be people who try to game the system. That's especially true if you're a highly popular and addictive game like Pokemon GO. From day one, developer Niantic Labs have been playing a game of cat and mouse with cheaters and hackers, who seem to always be a step ahead. In this round, the Niantic isn't giving players who catch Pokemon using third-party means the boot. Oh, they can still play the game and even use their Pokemon, but they might be in for a nasty surprise.

Sega Forever revives classic games on iOS and Android for free

Though some gamers may be feeling a little cool toward Sega these days, there's no denying that the company put out some excellent games back when it was still in the business of making consoles. Sega will be reviving some of those classic games on iOS and Android tomorrow, something it's already done with popular games like Sonic the Hedgehog and Crazy Taxi. There's an interesting twist this time, though, as this collection of games - known as Sega Forever - will be free-to-play and constantly expanding.

Steam Summer Sale start date outed by PayPal: Prepare your wallets

Newegg drops PlayStation VR price, but only briefly

Newegg drops PlayStation VR price, but only briefly

Though Sony spent a lot of time at E3 2017 focusing on its heavy hitters coming to PS4, it devoted some of its press conference to incoming games for the PlayStation VR as well. Games like Moss, The Inpatient, and Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR definitely have some PS4 owners excited, but considering the PSVR costs as much as a PS4 Pro, that might serve as a barrier to entry for those who would otherwise like to give VR a spin. Newegg seems to have something to say about that, discounting the PSVR today through its eBay store.

What’s new in Nintendo Switch update 3.0

Nintendo has delivered a new system update for the Switch, pushing the console to version 3.0. At first, Nintendo was quite vague with its changelogs, usually distilling them down to a single sentence that really didn't tell us much.

Fuze Code Studio is not your typical Nintendo Switch game, teaches kids to code

Fuze Code Studio is not your typical Nintendo Switch game, teaches kids to code

Fuze Code Studio is a "game" that will be available on the Nintendo Switch this summer, but we put that term in quotes because this app is not really a game in the normal sense of the word. Fuze Code Studio aims to help players learn how to code on the Nintendo Switch, and even code their own 2D and 3D games.

Super Smash Flash 2 has everyone, should have kitchen sink

Super Smash Flash 2 has everyone, should have kitchen sink

It may not be a household name like Street Fighter, but Nintendo's Super Smash Bros is also one of the best loved fighting game franchises, because of its ironically (for a fighting game) lighthearted nature and the assortment of characters pulled from various Nintendo properties. But what if you take those elements even further, almost to their most illogical conclusion. Then you et McLeod Gaming's Super Smash Flash 2, a 2D "retro" rendition of the Smash Bros concept that includes almost every gaming or geek culture icon you can think of and then some.

Don’t hold your breath for Nintendo Switch game cloud-saves

Don’t hold your breath for Nintendo Switch game cloud-saves

Nintendo's Switch may be plenty of fun in your hands, but owners are rightly concerned that should they break or lose the console, all their achievements will be lost. Though Switch games-in-progress can be saved, as you'd expect, so far Nintendo hasn't provided a way to back those up off-system. That means, if you're unlucky with your handheld, everything you've completed so far could well be lost.
