Poll: Did You Play Pokemon GO This Weekend?

You played Pokemon GO this weekend, right? If you say “no,” I don’t know that I can believe you.

Even me, the guy who spent 30 mins on Friday’s DL Show talking about how little I know or understand about Pokemon, installed Pokemon GO and nabbed a Pokemon or three from within my living room within the past couple of days. Everywhere I went over the weekend, which included a toddler party on Saturday, there were people talking about it. Yes, the parents at the toddler party, many of whom are old like me, talked Pokemon GO for lengthy periods of time. Honestly, I think some were counting the minutes until their child was headed for bed so that they could run around their neighborhood with phones up, tossing balls in AR to creatures from their past that are back and taking the world once again by storm.

So we want to know, because there is no denying the level of buzz surrounding this game at the moment, how many of you spent some time playing Pokemon GO this weekend? If you did spend some time, be sure to head over to this giveaway we are doing to show off your collection – you could win some Play credit!

Pokémon GO: Tips and Tricks to Make You the Very Best, Like No One Ever Was

Pokémon GO is literally taking over the world. As awful as the launch of the game has been due to countless server issues, no one can seem to stay indoors anymore. Even the White House and the Pentagon are getting in on the action.

True to the original Pokémon games, Nintendo and Niantic didn’t explain much about the game in terms of “How To,” so to help you level up quickly and find the best Pokémon, let me be your Professor and give you some Pokemon GO tips and tricks while out playing. (more…)

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…)
