Snoop Dogg doesn’t typically get as much credit as Jay-Z or Puffy for being a consummate businessman, but make no mistake about it: the D O double G has been making savvy business moves for quite some time now. Over the past few years, Snoop steadily climbed up the Forbes list by partnering up with a wide array of successful businesses, including Skullcrushers, TomTom and even Chrysler. With respect to Chrysler, you might recall this famous commercial Snoop appeared in with Lee Ioacooca a few years back.
If you own a Nintendo 3DS, chances are that you plan on downloading the Pokemon Sun and Moon demo at some point today. Before you jump in, you might want to know exactly what there is to do in the demo, so we’ve put together a guide detailing every Pokemon you can catch, battle you can participate in and item you can transfer to the full game when you get it in November.
Just hours after the special demo version of Pokemon Sun and Moon launched on the Nintendo 3DS eShop, hackers began digging through the demo’s files to see if they could find any new information that hadn’t been revealed yet.
Well, it turns out that Game Freak didn’t do a very good job of scrubbing the files, because virtually every unannounced Pokemon, including the final evolutions of the starters, has been leaked online as of Tuesday morning.
Rockstar Games has set the gaming world on fire.
After releasing two teasers images for an apparent Red Dead-related announcement earlier this week, the studio officially announced Red Dead Redemption 2 on Tuesday morning. According to the game’s new landing page, the sequel “is an epic tale of life in America’s unforgiving heartland.”
The best animated movie of the year is six minutes long.
Over the weekend, Pixar animators Andrew Coats and Lou Hamou-Lhadj shared a new short called Borrowed Time on Vimeo. Although the short features the same impressive animation quality you’ve come to expect from the studio, this isn’t a Pixar feature. Rather, it’s a passion project that the two animators have been working on in their free time for the past five years.
Saturday Night Live over the weekend continued its comedic assault on the 2016 U.S. Presidential election with a hilarious and dead-on spoof of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton’s recent Town Hall debate. Per usual, Alec Baldwin was in rare form as Donald Trump as Kate McKinnon similarly reprised her solid Hillary Clinton impersonation.
As anyone who witnessed last week’s Town Hall debate can attest, it was nothing short of a trainwreck, albeit an entertaining one, that practically did nothing to illuminate the respective candidate’s positions on important issues. Instead, we were treated to child-like bickering and a smattering of colorful and meme-friendly town characters like Ken Bone.
Netflix has always seemed like an excessively pro-customer company. Since Netflix first launched its streaming product, it has been letting users share their login credentials with friends and family. In fact, it has on several occasions encouraged subscribers to share their logins. The company also turned a blind eye for years as customers from regions around the world spoofed their locations using virtual private network services, or VPNs, in order to access region-locked content not available in their countries.
To this day, Netflix still happily lets users share login credentials with friends and family — the company even introduced a profile feature so that content viewed by other users doesn’t impact the main subscriber’s viewing history or recommendations. Region spoofing, however, is a different story. More →
Despite having launched to a great deal of fanfare, Pokemon Go was anything but perfect when it rolled out on iOS and Android back in July. Of all the bugs and glitches, the issues with the nearby tracking system were the most pressing, which is why Niantic killed the feature altogether within a few weeks, promising that it would come back bigger and better than ever in the near future.
Nearly three months later, the feature is still in the works.
The peak of the Pokemon Go craze is long behind us now. Some bloggers seemed to be surprised that Pokemon Go couldn’t stay at the top of app store charts forever, but it was pretty delusional to think that was even a possibility. In fact, the fact that the app is still #5 on the iOS App Store’s top-grossing apps is nothing short of amazing considering how long it has been since Pokemon Go was released and how tight a grip on the top-grossing chart the perennial leaders have had until now. This goes to show you that the game still has a huge base of avid fans who have no intention of slowing down on their quest to catch them all — and many of those fans will be happy to learn that the best ever Pokemon Go cheat still works perfectly following the release of Niantic’s latest app update. And best of all, it still doesn’t require you to jailbreak your iPhone in order to use it. More →
Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are two of the least popular presidential candidates in American history. Therefore, you can understand why some voters are looking for alternatives. In 2016, those alternatives come in the form of third-party candidates Dr. Jill Stein and former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson.
Whatever plans you made this weekend, you might want to consider cancelling them. On Thursday, Noodlecake Studios (best known for their Super Stickman Golf series) launched the sequel to Flappy Golf. If you don’t remember Flappy Golf, or somehow never heard of it to begin with, it started as a parody of Flappy Bird, but ended up being one of the most delightful surprises of 2014. Now, a year later, we have a sequel, and it’s just as great as its predecessor.
Although Pokemon Go might not be as huge as it was a few months ago, it’s still one of the top grossing apps on iOS and Android and regularly finds its way into the headlines. Inspired by the game’s success, the band Maroon 5 decided to dress up as ripoff Pokemon in the music video for their song “Don’t Wanna Know.”
