Oceanhorn 2 iOS Announcement

One of the iPhone’s best RPGs is getting a sequel

One of the iPhone’s best RPGs is getting a sequel

Although it never received quite as much attention as Pokemon Go, Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas made a big splash when it launched in 2013. Virtually unprecedented in scope and scale, Oceanhorn was a full 3D RPG for iPhone and iPad. Developed by small independent studio Cornfox & Bros., it was a perfect substitute for a true mobile Zelda game.

Nearly three years later, we’re finally getting a sequel.

Conan went to E3 again this year, but it appears that we didn’t see the entire extent of his visit back in June.

Pokemon Go Smart Shoes

A high-tech pair of shoes could be the ultimate Pokemon Go accessory

A high-tech pair of shoes could be the ultimate Pokemon Go accessory

One of the best things about Pokemon Go is that is has people getting out of their houses and out into the world. Even if your house or apartment happens to be sitting next to a PokeStop, you’re only going to find so many Pokemon by sitting on the couch, so going outside and walking around is really your only option.

But wouldn’t it be nice if your shoes could do more than just transport you from point A to point B? What if they could tell you when a Pokemon appeared?

No Man's Sky Infinite Item Exploit

‘No Man’s Sky’ exploit breaks the game’s economy, lets players farm rare items

‘No Man’s Sky’ exploit breaks the game’s economy, lets players farm rare items

One of the first things you’re going to want to do when you start playing No Man’s Sky is upgrade to a new ship. As you’d expect, buying a brand new spaceship isn’t cheap, so you’re going to have to save up units (the in-game currency) before you can make an extravagant purchase. Normally, this would take hours of resource gathering and trading on the galactic market, but some clever players have found an exploit that allows them to duplicate the game’s most valuable items.

Nine years later, the fanmade ‘Pokemon Uranium’ is finally complete

With all the buzz surrounding Pokemon Go, you’ll be forgiven for temporarily forgetting that the mobile phenomenon never would have been possible without the portable games that preceded it. In fact, there are two new entries in the long-running Pokemon franchise scheduled to hit later this year, but on Wednesday afternoon, a slightly less official Pokemon game was unleashed into the wild.

Introducing: Pokemon Uranium.

Video game movies almost never work. Whether it’s Super Mario Bros., Doom or even Warcraft, filmmakers are rarely able to translate the interactive journeys that players experience into a linear, two-hour story. So what’s the key to making a successful film series based on a video game franchise?

For Sony Pictures Entertainment, the answer is simple: have a nearly invincible character murder everyone in her path while on the run from zombies.

Pokemon Go Server Status App

You’ll always know when the Pokemon Go servers are offline with this free app

You’ll always know when the Pokemon Go servers are offline with this free app

Over the past few weeks, Niantic has made Pokemon Go a significantly more stable game. At launch, the game would freeze and crash constantly, and even when the app did work, there was a good chance the servers would be offline.

Thankfully, many of those problem have been resolved through updates, but like any online game, Pokemon Go is going to continue to run into occasional speed bumps going forward. That’s why it might not be a bad idea to know the status of the server at all times if you plan to play regularly.

Hardest Pokemon to Catch Pokemon Go

Pokemon Go: Easiest and hardest Pokemon to catch

Pokemon Go: Easiest and hardest Pokemon to catch

Although Pokemon Go bares only a passing resemblance to the original handheld Pokemon games, there’s one thing that hasn’t changed: rare Pokemon are still incredibly difficult to catch. There’s nothing more stressful than finding a Lapras or a Venusaur and then realizing you only have a few Poke Balls left.

Unfortunately, there’s not much you can do to get around this — it’s just part of the game. But at the very least, you can know beforehand which Pokemon are more likely to give you trouble than others.

No Man's Sky Review Pt. 1

‘No Man’s Sky’ early impressions: Surprisingly familiar and completely alien all at once

‘No Man’s Sky’ early impressions: Surprisingly familiar and completely alien all at once

There’s never been a game like No Man’s Sky before, and there might never be a game like it again. But it’s important to remember that, despite all of the hype and expectations, No Man’s Sky is still just that: a game.

It’s not the future of entertainment, it’s not the culmination of decades of game development and it’s not going to change your life. It’s a game. But it’s also different than any other game before it — subtly so in some ways, drastically so in others.

Although I’ve only spent around 8-10 hours with the game (half pre-patch, half post-patch), I’m going to do my best to explain what exactly No Man’s Sky is, and why it’s such a hard game to classify or define.
