Mega Man 11 revealed for late 2018 release

Mega Man 11 revealed for late 2018 release

It's been a long time since we've had a proper Mega Man game, but that's all going to change next year. During Capcom's 30th Anniversary livestream for the Mega Man series today, the company revealed Mega Man 11, continuing the mainline series that first started on the NES back in 1987. We had a feeling that Capcom was going to announce something during the livestream, and given the nature of the celebration, perhaps we should have assumed that Mega Man 11 was on the way.

Razer Phone Unboxing: Devil’s in the Details

Razer Phone Unboxing: Devil’s in the Details

Inside the box sent to me for a SlashGear review is the Razer Phone - but more than that, it's a presentation of a phone worthy of the best on the market. It's almost as if Razer is trying to tell the end user that they've bought into a device that's more than just the Android phone they find at the top of this box. Inside is the work of a team of engineers that are obviously proud of the work they've done.

Monster Hunter: World PS4 beta kicks off this week

Monster Hunter: World PS4 beta kicks off this week

Among long time Monster Hunter fans, Monster Hunter: World is kind of a big deal. In recent years, the mainline Monster Hunter series has been limited to handhelds, and when it hasn't been, the games have been exclusive to Nintendo consoles, such as Monster Hunter Tri on the Wii. While the handheld Monster Hunter releases have been fine - great, even - they don't always capture the "wow" factor that a larger screen would give these massive monsters.

RPCS3 PS3 emulator now runs some AAA titles

RPCS3 PS3 emulator now runs some AAA titles

Game emulation is a pretty thorny and murky subject. On the one hand, you have some valid arguments for encouraging emulation, especially for long gone platforms. On the other hand, it’s often used for less than legally sound cases. Whichever way you swing, there is one thing that makes any sort of game emulation a technically fascinating and impressive feat. And that is the ability to run even triple-A games using reverse engineering methods and a near-infinite amount of patience, like what developers of the PS3 emulator RPCS3 have accomplished.

Niantic’s Ingress AR game is being reborn as Ingress Prime

Niantic’s Ingress AR game is being reborn as Ingress Prime

Niantic Labs has really come a long way since it started as Google fledgling in 2012. It has become one of the biggest and sometimes most controversial names in the mobile gaming business thanks to the two-sided fame and infamy of Pokemon GO. But years before that, Niantic had its own baby, is own vision. That child was Ingress, which may have been born far too ahead of its time. But now, the time may be just right and Niantic is taking advantage of that to launch Ingress 2.0: Ingress Prime.

Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon review: Second time’s a charm

Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon review: Second time’s a charm

A year ago, I reviewed Pokemon Sun and Moon and found that the changes they brought to the long-running (and in many ways stale) Pokemon series were great. After all, Pokemon is not usually a series that makes drastic changes from game to game. Though Pokemon Sun and Moon are completely different than Pokemon Red and Blue, that isn’t the result of some sweeping reinvention, but rather incremental changes that have been implemented over the course of the series. With Pokemon Sun and Moon, Game Freak rethought its approach and took more risks, and the results were very successful.
