Pokemon GO shiny egg list just blew up for Easter

This week we've got a far better chance of finding the cutest Shiny Pokemon in the universe, thanks to an update from Niantic to Pokemon GO. This update affects Pokemon Eggs - the new best place for you to find a Shiny Pokemon in the entire Pokemon GO universe. You can now find new Shiny Pokemon in 2, 5, 7, and 10KM eggs - so long as you've found these eggs on or after the start of this week.

PC and mobile gaming are entering a sad exclusivity phase

PC and mobile gaming are entering a sad exclusivity phase

Just like the larger entertainment industry, the gaming market is a rather aggressively competitive one. There are equal amounts of sometimes glorified success stories and urban legends as well as tragic drama of overtimes and turnovers. Companies, especially the big ones, are not too shy to use tactics that, on the surface, seem unfair and exploitative - and yet these are often excused as common industry practices.

For years, the PC gaming market has prided itself for steering clear of some of those practices that have become common in the console market but now it seems the culture of exclusivity is invading not just PCs but mobile as well.

Apple Arcade is here to destroy Android gaming

"We want to make gaming even better," said Tim Cook. The Apple CEO stood onstage at an event that'd already introduced a magazine subscription service and, for the first time ever, an Apple Credit Card that effectively turned the company into a financial services brand. Apple also wanted a new slice of the pie that was gaming - this time in a subscription service as well.

Nintendo gaming phone rumor seems far-fetched – but then so did Switch

By now, Nintendo's mobile ambitions are pretty clear. For the past few years, Nintendo has been bringing a number of its franchises to mobile devices, and it's been experimenting with monetization strategies along the way.

Harry Potter: Wizards Unite gameplay revealed – What we know now

Back in November, Niantic and Warner Bros. officially unveiled Harry Potter: Wizards Unite.

Today, the two companies detailed the gameplay of Wizards Unite further, telling us budding wizards what we'll be doing when the game releases later this year.

Octopath Traveler is getting a mobile prequel, new console game

Octopath Traveler is getting a mobile prequel, new console game

One of the most interesting games of 2018 was, in my opinion, Octopath Traveler. The Switch exclusive was a beautiful title that definitely wasn't afraid to try new things (even if they didn't always work), and apparently, it was successful enough to warrant a follow-up or two. Square Enix has officially announced the next game in what is now the Octopath Traveler series, and this one is headed to mobile devices.

Nintendo doesn’t want players spending too much on its mobile games

Nintendo doesn’t want players spending too much on its mobile games

For the past couple of years, Nintendo has been putting its name on a variety of different mobile games. These mobile titles have experimented with different payment models, but one Nintendo seems to have settled on is a typical mobile gacha game model, where players spend in-game currency (which can be purchased with real money) to summon random heroes. Both Fire Emblem Heroes and Dragalia Lost use variations of this model, and though it certainly seems feels like a consumer-unfriendly way to monetize a game, Nintendo has apparently taken measures to ensure these games aren't too greedy.
