10 years ago, Sega released Sonic the Hedgehog on PS3 and Xbox 360. It was an utter disaster, and in one fell swoop nearly killed the Sonic franchise for good. Since then a majority of Sega’s Sonic games have been poorly received, but some of the character’s most dedicated fans are taking matters into their own hands.
Were it not for the Galaxy Note 7 battery debacle, the battle between the iPhone 7 Plus and Google Pixel XL might be the biggest smartphone story of the fall. Both phones feature top-of-the-line processors, smart software upgrades and arguably the best cameras every seen on the mobile market.
So while this battle might not get top billing, it’s still been entertaining to keep up with, and a video comparison from Btekt adds an interesting new wrinkle.
Months of anticipation boiled over last week when Nintendo finally unveiled its new console. The Switch, as it has been dubbed, will be a hybrid console that you can connect to your TV or take with you on the go, but even though we learned a great deal from the preview video, countless other questions remained unanswered.
Can the Nintendo Switch play Wii U games? How powerful is the Switch compared to the PS4 and the Xbox One? How long does the battery last in portable mode?
If you’ve been desperate to add a Gengar to your collection in Pokemon Go, the week of Halloween might be the perfect time to do so.
On Monday morning, Niantic announced a special Halloween event for the popular mobile game that will allow trainers to collect bonus candy through a variety of actions and offer an increased spawn rate for “spooky” Pokemon.
Earlier this month, the developers behind the FastPokeMap map tracker for Pokemon Go announced that it would come back online by Friday the 14th or Saturday the 15th. That deadline came and went, but last night, after weeks of anticipation, the site’s Twitter account confirmed FastPokeMap was back.
After months of anticipation, Nintendo finally unveiled its new console on Thursday. As expected, the console is unlike anything we’ve ever seen before from a major console maker, combining the raw power of a home console with “the mobility of a handheld” to let gamers bring the biggest games with them anywhere they go.
Unfortunately, there’s still a great deal we don’t know, including the price of the Switch, the launch lineup and the color options that will be available at launch.
As terrifying this presidential campaign season has been, I was somewhat conflicted when the third and final debate wrapped up on Wednesday night. Millions of Americans will be happy to never see these two together in the same room again, but some of us are going to miss the sparks that flew every time they met.
To that end, we figured it might be worth sharing the full video from the Al Smith charity dinner in New York City this week, where the two presidential candidates roasted one another mercilessly for the amusement of the crowd.
This has been an exciting week for Nintendo fans. Not only did the company finally unveil the Nintendo Switch, it also released a demo for Pokemon Sun and Moon on 3DS. The demo is fairly short, offering just a glimpse of what the full game has in store for gamers, but hackers have made the most of the demo’s files.
This has been an exciting week, full of new movie trailers, new game trailers and even a new console announcement from Nintendo, but we have some somber news to discuss as well: Netflix is getting rid of a bunch of content again.
With the launch of Pokemon Go earlier this year, a whole generation of smartphone users were either introduced or reintroduced to one of the most successful video game franchises of all time. Having generated over $600 million since its release, you might be wondering if and when Niantic and Game Freak will find a way to make Pokemon Go interact with Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon.
Don’t worry; they’re way ahead of you.
When Nintendo unveiled the Wii U at E3 2011, I was baffled. Sitting in the back row at the Nokia Center in Los Angeles, I distinctly remember that I started laughing out loud, because I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. As in, I literally didn’t know what it was that Nintendo was trying to announce.
Was it a new console? A hardware upgrade for the Wii? Some kind of supersized portable device? I, along with countless other gamers, couldn’t wrap my head around the Wii U, but as a Nintendo fan, I was more concerned about the games than the hardware anyway, so I decided to reserve judgment.
Last month, we shared a selection of the best movies coming to Prime Video in the coming month for the first time in months. Based on the response, there are plenty of Amazon Prime subscribers who use the service and want to know what movies and shows are being added, so we’ve decided to do it any for November.
This week, Netflix claimed that it would release 1,000 hours of original content in 2017. That sounds incredibly daunting, but rather than peer too far into the future, let’s focus on the present. On Thursday, the company unveiled all the new movies and shows coming to its streaming service next month.
