Everything we think we know about Nintendo’s NX

Microsoft just released the Xbox One S and Sony is preparing to unveil the PS4 Slim, but in a few short months, Nintendo will launch the first truly new major video game console since 2013. The NX is currently scheduled to release next March, but we still know hardly anything about the console, as Nintendo has been predictably tight-lipped ever since the console was announced.

So in truth, we don’t know anything concrete about the NX, and likely won’t for a few more months. But at the very least, what do we think we know? More →

Pokemon Go MythBusters: Tips and tricks that have been disproved and debunked

We’ve talked about this more than once before, but Pokemon Go can be fairly inscrutable at times.

How to get a ‘No Man’s Sky’ refund, even if you already played the game

As it turns out, No Man’s Sky is so deeply flawed that it may be eligible for a Steam refund, even if you’ve played more than the usual two hours. Here’s what you need to do.

See the spawn rates of all 151 Pokemon in Pokemon Go

As popular as Pokemon Go has become, it’s always been equally obtuse. Without spending a significant amount of time doing research on the internet, you probably wouldn’t know how to catch a Pikachu as your starter, how to determine the power levels of your creatures or how to decipher the new appraisal feature.

Another question that most trainers have: how do I know when a Pokemon is going to spawn? You’re obviously less likely to find a Blastoise than you are a Pidgey, but what are the actual spawn rates for each individual Pokemon?

We finally have the answers, thanks to some dedicated fans.

Following widespread backlash, here’s what Respawn is doing to fix ‘Titanfall 2’

Last weekend, after months of anticipation, players finally got their hands on Titanfall 2. In order to prepare for the game’s late October release, Respawn Entertainment launched a Tech Test on PS4 and Xbox One both to stress-test the multiplayer servers and to get valuable feedback from players.

As it turns out, not everyone was enthused with the sequel. In fact, the general consensus was widely negative, as Respawn had changed many of Titanfall’s fundamental features and slowed the pace of the game to a crawl.

See Link’s rune abilities in new ‘The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’ video

Not only is The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild one of the most anticipated games of 2017, it’s also one of the last major titles to ever launch on the Wii U. With that in mind, you can understand why Nintendo is already hyping up the game, despite the fact that Breath of the Wild doesn’t even have a release date.
