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.

How to play this year’s most popular PC game on a Mac

Overwatch has been a surprise hit for Blizzard, a game company much better known for World of Warcraft, not a team shooter. But while Overwatch has been out for months now, Mac owners have been left out of the fun.

But as it turns out, it’s not that hard to play Overwatch on OS X. All you need is a little time and some clever software.

Pokemon Go Cheats

We will ban Pokemon Go cheaters, Niantic promises

By on August 19, 2016 at 5:00 PM.

We will ban Pokemon Go cheaters, Niantic promises

Niantic, a relatively small game developer which is suddenly in charge of administering the world’s biggest mobile game, is done with cheaters. In a statement posted to the game’s blog, the development team confirmed that it will “continue to terminate accounts that show clear signs of cheating.”

It’s an open-ended statement that doesn’t specify exactly what the company consider cheating, how it weeds people out, and what the appeals process (if any) is for accounts falsely flagged. But it does make absolutely clear that Niantic is tired of people cheating at the game.

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

Xbox One S Laptop

Don’t ask why you’d turn an Xbox One S into a laptop, just be impressed

Don’t ask why you’d turn an Xbox One S into a laptop, just be impressed

Earlier this month, Microsoft released the Xbox One S, a console that has a smaller footprint than its predecessor, but also comes ready to offer some neat additional features. However, you still need to hook up the Xbox One S to a TV set and a power supply to play games, and you can’t take it with you on the road. That’s unless you hire Eddie Zarick to build you an Xbook One S, which is exactly what you expect: an Xbox One S laptop. More →

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.

By on August 10, 2016 at 8:00 PM.

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.

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.
