Pokémon GO is a Total Disaster [Opinion]

Last year in September, it was announced that Pokémon GO was an actual thing. Made by Niantic Labs, the minds behind the hit-game Ingress, Pokémon GO would deliver that same type of Ingress adventure players grew to love, but with familiar Pokémon characters that we knew as children. You see, Pokémon GO is essentially every Pokémon fan’s fantasy – you go out into the real world, capture Pokémon, evolve them, and then battle them at your local Gym. For anyone who grew up playing or trading Pokémon cards, Pokémon GO is basically a dream come true. The only problem is, now that the game has launched for Android and iOS, we can safely say that this game totally sucks ass. (more…)

Out There Chronicles is an Interactive Graphic Novel Based on the Out There Universe

For fans of the game Out There, a new title from the same creators has been released to Google Play. The title isn’t a game, but is an interactive graphic novel of sorts that is based in the same universe as the original Out There. Called Out There Chronicles, the story follows Darius, a human from Earth that escaped the planet during a time of great war. Recovered from an Ark which carried remnants of the human race, Darius’ new mission is to find the location of his lost companions, while also trying not to die in an alien galaxy.  (more…)

Pokémon GO Live on Google Play in US, But Not Quite Ready for Use (Update: Finally Live)

Pokémon GO is finally live on Google Play for everyone. The only issue is, it’s not yet downloadable onto any device. While you can easily find it, the game’s device compatibility list shows that no device is supported, so until Niantic Labs decides to change that, all we can do is look at it and twiddle our thumbs.

However, as soon as it is available for download, get ready for fun. Think of Pokémon GO as Ingress, but with Pokémon. As you walk around your neighborhood, you will come across wild Pokémon that you can capture. As you rank up, you can train and evolve your Pokémon, then battle them at arenas which are also located around your area.  (more…)

Never Alone for Android TV on Sale for $5, Down From $15

One of my all-time favorite games for the NVIDIA SHIELD, called Never Alone, is currently on sale through Google Play for only $5. Regularly priced at $14.99, Never Alone is the story of a young Iñupiaq (Alaskan natives) girl and her Arctic fox friend attempting to stop a blizzard from destroying their village.

The game itself is a puzzle platformer, forcing you to complete mildly difficult puzzles to advances chapters in the story. Throughout the game, as you complete tasks, you unlock additional stories based on Alaskan indigenous folklore. It adds a very authentic and visually appealing aspect to the gameplay.  (more…)
